It might not be a theme that the guests have to dress for, either.


There's a good point. A number of years ago I was on a catering job for a theme wedding where the wedding party were all dressed in 18th century attire -- groom and groomsmen in powderwigs and those short pants (whatever they may be called), women in the large hoop-type skirts (ok, I don't know the terminology, but you get the idea). Looked like something out of the "Madness of King George".

The wedding was held at an old mansion on Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island ... an apropos setting. It was actually one of the most formally catered events I've seen -- the service was perfectly timed and placed and we were all wearing formal wear -- white gloves, tails, etc.

The guests, however, were dressed in standard 20th century clothes -- nice dresses and suits.
