Looking for extra style in your nuptials? Tired of the traditional ceremonies and décor? If you and your other half are fans of the middle ages, then perhaps a medieval themed wedding will bring matrimonial bliss. A knight in shining armor can sweep his damsel off her feet and the guests can join in celebrating their love in this special way. There are many ways to work in the medieval theme to your special event.
The gown, bridesmaids' dresses, tuxedoes, decorations and even the favors can enhance the unique and romantic idea of a medieval wedding. The clothing is central to upholding the idea, so look into different dress designs that would be considered from the middle ages yet still be contemporary. The tuxes don't have to be an old-fashioned design, either. Color choice is important and an easy, inexpensive way to match the wedding clothes to this theme. Make sure, for example, that everyone's attire matches the décor of the whole event.
Themed decorations for the reception can add a ton of fun for all your guests. Look for locations that have a medieval feel or consider having the party outside. Wall tapestries are a great decoration for this type of nuptial. Also, the meal could be a medieval feast. You may even look into hiring some re enactors to joust like knights as entertainment. None of this needs to be expensive, either. In fact, with the right planning it can be inexpensive. It's easy to find cheap wedding favors, even themed ones. One way to save money on the food is to get your friends to help you cook it the night before your big day. Chances are, if you're an enthusiast, you've got friends that love the middle ages, and they should have things that will help you decorate your church or location. The possibilities are endless.
