I am getting married in June of 2005 I would love nothing more than to get married in a dress like Lady Galadriel wore in the mirror scene of The Fellowship. My fiance` and I would like to have our whole wedding party dressed in elvish attire. I was hoping you could tell me if this is realistic and how I can acquire the costumes or designs. I have my heart set on those amazing outfits.
The expert answers:
Anything is possible!
I would go to a local dress maker, bespoke bridal designer or a designer that specialized in costume and wedding planners who specialize in theme weddings, with some pictures or designs that you have with fabric swatches and colors you had in mind.
This is a handmade design and can be bought by click here.
I don't think looking into fancy dress hire is very original and can look a bit pantomime. But you can get some ideas from the designs. However there are professional customer hire businesses that can offer bespoke items like these: www.masqueradecostume.co.uk and www.myerscough.ac.uk.
