|In order to help you put together a beautiful
Renaissance wedding, all of our bodice styles can be made in either white
suede or white
leather. In addition, we can provide you with samples of white, ivory, gold
or any color brocade, damask, silk, or velvet
that you wish to complete your wedding bodice. From there, we can put together
coordinating bridesmaids dresses and even outfit the groom
and his attendants. We can combine elements of any style bodice you see
here on our website with other bodice styles, and are willing to entertain
custom ideas. Although some of our doublet and bodices styles have been
designed to go together (i.e. the Romeo and Juliet), don't feel compelled
to limit your choice to those. All of our styles look beautiful with each
other and we can always incorporate the same fabric to tie the whole thing
together. In other words, anything is possible ...
Here are some ideas, you can purchase the outfits as suggested,

This is one of the weddings we have helped put together:

body with Juliet
sleeves. Her over skirt is a winter white brocade, the underskirt a lovely
metallic brocade in gold on white. The groom, Andrew, is wearing a Romeo
doublet in black suede with a brocade yoke (matching the brides overskirt)
and sleeves that match Alison's.
