Hey, John!

Amanda and I are getting married at Ainsworth House & Gardens. Instead of the same old bride in white and me in formal wear, are there music, science fiction or fantasy themes we could incorporate into our wedding to personalize this celebration?

Hey, Jason!

I am glad you are thinking of selecting a theme–this will make your wedding stand out from all the rest.

You might add 1-2 sentences to your invitations and your wedding website to explain what you are hoping your guests will wear. Expect that they will call with questions because you selected an unusual theme. Remember, each guest may have things in their closets which could be combined to fit into your theme. When I have ideas, I will list them under the theme’s title. Of course, your definition of the theme is the one that is important!


  • The Beatles
  • The Rolling Stones
  • Grateful Dead

Music Festival Themes:

  • Burning Man Formal: Think Mad Max mixed with Carnival: gold lamé, combat boots, rhinestones, body paint, and goggles.
  • Music Festival Formal: Very Woodstock with hippie flowing boho dresses, bell bottoms, tunics, tie dye, big round sunglasses, woven headbands, beige linen suit with a vintage beaded necklace or two.
