All you need is a venue with interiors that you can transform into a medieval setting. Add white lace and linen ribbons to decorate the place and make use of floating candles to create a special effect and ambiance worthy of a wedding from the Middle Ages.

Similar flowers and gems should be woven into the bride’s hair to match the bright silk gowns your guests should be wearing.

Luxe Reception Theme

Instead of the usual buffet setting with chaffing dishes, go for elegantly-looking hors d’oeuvres served by butlers in tuxes that would really give a high-end cocktail reception look for roughly the same cost of spending it all on food. As a luxe lounge theme, make your reception look like an elegant cocktail style party with lounge chairs, couches and silk pillows for your guest instead of the usual table settings.    

Superheroes Theme
