This themed Tudor/Elizabethan style wedding
took place in UK and most of the guests hired their costumes from local
fancy dress outlets and some hired them in London where they lived. In
the suburbs people paid about £25- £40 to hire a costume, but old Henry VIII
here paid about £100 in London. But it is fantastic. For those interested
the modern day cod piece was made of foam! It strikes me that these prices
are well below what a normal wedding ensemble might cost, when you add in
the price of an outfit with accessories.
