I did start a thread ages ago on this but now edding is a few weeks away and I really do need to get the outfit sorted.

basically the couple are having a wedding festival in the IOW. All camping, bride bought ebay wedding dress for £3.50 and wering with wellies. The wqedding list is just a booze list for the reception. They have asked everyne to bring a false moustache and an egg, a spoon and a sack/binbag!!!!

They asked us to buy our outfits from oxfam / ebay and to bring as many mad outfits as we can find / afford.

So, I was thinking Marie Antoinette stylee or Abigails party sort of thing. Or I wouldn't mind wearing a tuxedo and top hat.

Fancy helping find me something wacky?

I'm a size 14.

I don't know if \link{\this} is mad enough but it is absolutely ridiculous.

Try searching ebay under fancy dress - plenty of weird and whacky stuff comes up.

Fun idea for a wedding theme! Question is, are you hoping for a sunny day, or would rain fit the theme better?

controlfreaky2 · 31/05/2006 23:21

but i want it!! is fab. love the colours and love the shape. love the one size fita all hard sell too!! fight you for it?

At the V festival lasy year there was a Oxfam second hand clothes stall, as we are Scottish my friend and I ended up helping a group of english lads that decide to get kitted out in kilts, there were bridal dresses and dinner suits being worn as well, great fun.

You will need some mad wellies and some mega jewelry too.

Thomcat · 31/05/2006 23:23

Rain or shine it'll be a mad and fun affair.
