Most of the time when I mention Pop Up weddings most folks have never heard of them. “What’s a pop up wedding?” they ask.
Recently I had such a conversation. I explained what a pop up wedding was and recounted our recent pop up wedding day event where we hosted and married 5 couples on one day.
This amazes most, including me.
They asked: “Did the bride wear a classic wedding gown?”
This is a valid question. I explained that they all did. (except for Emily and Ken. They were unique in that they got married on the trail, in the woods, about a kilometer away from the main area where we hosted the rest. It was very cool. And unique.)
Every pop up wedding we’ve hosted so far were very classic, traditional and elegant. The only difference is the size of the crowd. We’ve had some with a regular size bridal party, you know, three on each side. But only twenty guests.
There’s something deep, symbolic and meaningful about wearing a classic white gown. It’s almost like an archetype.
Everyone seems to value it as a symbol and meaningful part of every wedding, no matter the size of the crowd in attendance. The gown, the vows, the walk down the aisle, the music, the rings….and the dress and more. All of it play a role in each and every wedding.
