Your question:
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.

I think if you set yourself a budget then they quote accordingly on the intricacy of the designs and materials available.

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.
