Being a minister, I have attended (and conducted) a great many weddings. Years after our own wedding, I still think that E and I had a particularly good idea when we asked everyone to bring themselves as wedding decorations as it were. In keeping with this, we invited everyone to wear "African" dress. Here was one couple's interpretation of it, on the right (the Church in the background). OBSERVATION: Often couples ask everyone to dress according to a particular colour scheme. It can look very beautiful, but I think too ... uniform. Too "flat". That's just an opinion, mind.
