Themed Fancy Dress Wedding

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.
