What do you think? Tacky or fun?
How was food/ entertainment done?
Indoor or outdoor?

Honestly, there is no way you can make a medieval wedding classy. It is just bad.

 Not true don't listen to the nay sayers...research research research....look everywhere pinterest & movies would be your best bet. What about a medieval princess vibe?

 I just checked out pinterest & on there it looks like a cross between vintage (lots of lace) & a woodsy wedding- i think it's very pretty. Most people think about the 90's kind of medieval- no one wants that.

I would love your wedding because medieval would mean lots of meat. I love meat. I dream about pork knuckles. Yummmmmmm. If you go the medieval theme please don't skimp on the meat 😊

OP My partner is totally down for medieval theme cos of the meat. He has roasts, spits and all that in mind 😅

A medieval wedding? How cool would that be?
I'd go for sure 😘

I say do what you want. I've never been to a themed wedding, but think it would be fun. Even if it is tacky, I'd just bask in the tackiness haha. My only concern as a guest would be if I have to get a costume and how much it would cost.

OP Haha that's what I was thinking, I'm not a traditional person, I'm probably a lot more tacky, so I don't think it would be too out of character for me haha

Went to a medieval wedding once. It was different but I loved it

Yes it was a while ago, but was nice.
It was in a park next to a forest so the photos had a lovely background. There were a few props like sword in stone to have silly pics taken, a bit of live music and dancing and lots of roast meat. It was in summer so was lovely, once it got dark they brought out fake fire torches. It was a mix of beautiful and tacky but was so much fun.

Don't do dark coloured dresses. Light colours....i see a dainty gold tiara. Wildflower looking flowers for the bouquet

If it’s done elegantly, I think it would be rather nice. Could be done quite tasteful and fun

I really don’t like medieval wedding photos. The girls always look ghastly. I’m not sure why people like fancy dress or themed weddings.

 Because everyone likes different things

 A wedding should be a reflection of both of the couples personalities, interests, hobbies etc. Not everyone wants a cookie cutter wedding...i applaud you for having the courage to do something different. Give them something to talk about. Stand out from the crowd don't just be a part of it. 👏👏👏
