One of the subjects that has got everyone talking with our wedding is clothes!

We're using The Costume Company to make our clothes and they're also going to dress our guests and horse (more about that one in another post).

It's very important to stress that we're not having fancy dress costumes, this is not the £20 cheap polyester that you'll wear once before it rips. These are clothes made as authentically as possible by a costumier, they're more what you would expect to see in films or on the TV.

Everyone asks whether Mark will be a knight in shining armour but Mark has opted not to have plate as even the half plate in aluminium is very hot and very heavy. This is the photo that has inspired Mark BUT that's as far as I'm going to let you in on the men's outfits.

All I will say about mine is that white makes me look like the ghost of a Medieval bride ghost walking around a castle is not a look I'm planning for my wedding day!

The other question we get a lot is men in tights. You'll be glad to know there are no man-tights, men are given black trousers but any outfits that do show off the legs will have matching football socks with them.
