Guests Should Dress in What?

ACCORDING TO MISS MANNERS, guests are not required to dress for your fabulous themed wedding.  Yes, I looked it up.  Why would I look up such a thing?  Well, I guess I was just curious.  We often have brides who tell us about their themed weddings.  Most of the time, it is the bride and bridal party who stick to the theme, but from time to time, we get a bride who has requested that her guests also dress in costume.  Particularly, something from the roaring 20's or rockabilly 50's.  Pretty tall order, eh?

Now, as the owner of a vintage clothing store, I welcome her guests to shop our vintage collection for the perfect wedding guest attire.  However, as a woman who has been to her fair share of weddings, I wondered if guests are required to dress in costume.  Well despite Miss Manners' opinion, I do think that everyone dressing in costume, including the guests, sounds pretty fun!
