Say no to masks!
Jan 20th, 2012
Most weddings follow a rather traditional and somewhat uniform approach to the overall events and styles of the day. However, one trend that is lesser known is that of a masquerade-themed wedding, where the members of the wedding party wear Victorian-era masks. This theme draws upon the themes of vintage theater, shown through dramatic, flamboyant colors and vibrant metallic accents.

While we realize this trend only applies to a select portion of couples, we are still not completely on board with this. Though it may be fun to don masks for some of the organized photographs and possibly even the dance celebration at the reception, there is something that is lost about the sanctity and importance of the wedding when its participants are hidden behind costume masks.
What are your thoughts about a masquerade themed wedding? Does it lack a level of seriousness needed at weddings or is it a dramatic and refreshingly fun break from the traditional norms? Let us know!!
