Something old, something new, something borrowed…
A classic 1920s building, a brand new gown, vintage tuxedos, and a pair of satin pumps prove that the road to the big day can be just as exciting as the ceremony, especially when you have so many grooms to choose from.
New bride Johnna Carr keeps Tacoma’s most eligible groomsmen guessing as they battle for her hand throughout the resplendent Sherlock Room and Avalon Ballroom at Northwest Costume.
Johnna wears a custom gown by R. German and and shoes by Manolo Blahnik, the men all sport tuxedos from Northwest Costume.
Not before the wedding
The tradition of keeping the bride hidden from the groom heightens the glamour of the moment when we finally see her.
Necessary and proper
A perfect fit for the groom is nothing without great haberdashery. Find vintage cuff-links, studs, braces, sock garters, and ties in Tacoma’s antique shops.
Elementary, my dear Watson
The Sherlock room raises the historic stakes in our nuptial drama.
A memorable photograph can capture the depth of a relationship; an impromptu talent show not only makes for a good photo-op, but it also provides a setting for our grooms to impress our bride.
Greenrooms like the one at the Avalon Ballroom offer a glamorous and intimate surrounding for the last moments of preparation before the ceremony. Rhinestones: Northwest Costume.
Little pets get big baguettes
The glint of stones bring an ethereal elegance to any gown. Rhinestones are an excellent, socially-conscious alternative to diamonds. Every piece seen here is under $40 at Northwest Costume.
