Heather Piper runs verymerryseamstress.com, a company that sews and sells period Renaissance clothing for all occasions, including theater productions, faires, and weddings.
Piper says 90 percent of her business comes from brides looking to make their weddings historic, so she offers an entire line of special Renaissance wedding garb, which includes Medieval and Elizabethan bridal gowns, peasant bridesmaids dresses, and period groom apparel.
Piper says buying a Renaissance wedding gown is a smart investment because instead of wearing their wedding dress just once, brides can wear it again for years to come at Renaissance Faires.
To complete the Ren wedding look, historically accurate accessories are available like flat, hand-made leather shoes, cloaks that can be used in lieu of traditional veils, and semi-sexy wedding undergarments like period-correct hosen, slips, corsets, and chemises.
And if you want to go with a pirate-themed Ren wedding, Piper also makes a line of popular swashbuckling threads.
She says, Bridal parties buy our pirate boots, hats, and swords. They go all out for pirate weddings.
