Hi Miss Jeanne. Last August I found a link to an Etsy blog post where a woman described her DIY Depression Era/Hobo themed wedding.
I don’t mean that she made her wedding simple, like a person in the Depression might have done. I mean that her wedding invitations said, “Dress is hobo casual.” I think the dangerous thing about this particular theme is that I like some of the individual elements of it (I love the simple vintage clothes, for example), and the set-up is so well-done and polished that you almost forget that it’s basically a glamorization of the hardship and homelessness of the 1930s. At the same time, I cannot help but note the irony that her inspiration was “simplicity” and “back to basics,” while this wedding sounds like it was more complicated to put together than your average, run-of-the-mill banquet-hall-ceremony/reception.
Note: The comments on this Etsy site were closed long before Ehell readers knew of it. I would imagine some people found the theme to be inappropriate.
