I wasn't aware we could also ask about wedding "fashions," so here is my question.
Three months from now, I am going to be one of four "bridesmaids" in my friend's wedding. I use quotes on bridesmaids because this is no ordinary wedding, but a crunchy hippy pagan handfasting. As in we will each be assigned a quarter (element) to invoke.
My friend is not very wedding crazy, so to get anything out of her is difficult beyond the date and place is difficult. In talking with the other bridesmaids, who are actually pagan, I will be given the element of fire to invoke. This means my dress should be red.
We are not being given any rules other than the color for the dresses. The wedding is outside on September 12. My own wedding dress was red, but it is semi-fancy and covered with jewels that equal about 25 pounds.
Two of the other three bridesmaids are getting custom-made ritual robes to the ceremony. I think these are the blue and green people. The other person, wearing yellow, is crafty and sewing herself a yellow robe-like dress.
I don't think I want to wear a red ritual robe, but I wouldn't mind something robe-like and flowing. I also gather it doesn't have to be all red, just mostly red. I would like something that is plain enough to go with the others, but doesn't look so fruity and pagan that I can't wear it again.
