|Once Upon a Time|
Imagine if you will, a medieval fantasy castle, with winged ice dragon maidens and knights. That was the theme of my daughter's friend A's wedding. The theme was carried out, throughout, with much of the props made by the bride, herself.
The bride's dress had a train (tail) made of silver and blue dragon scale (chain mail hand crafted by her), the maid of honor and bridesmaids wore ice blue and white Lolita-style dresses (design modified by the bride and custom made), and they all had wings made by the bride. The groom, bestman, and groomsmen wore medieval knights' attire and the guests were encouraged to come in medieval costumes as well and, according to my daughter, almost everyone did! It was held at a venue that looked like a castle (ceremony held outdoors with the castle as the backdrop) and was officiated by the "Elder Dragon" who was also in costume. My daughter doesn't have any of the official group pictures, yet, but there is one informal picture of her with the bride. My daughter doesn't have her wings on yet in the picture.

The bride carried a bouquet, but, my daughter and the bridesmaids carried floral lanterns (flowers arranged by the bride):

The tables featured centerpieces reflecting the theme:
And so did the cake:
