Over her gown - ''It was long, so my grandmother was happy'' - she wore a modified white motorcycle jacket. According to the rule books, the proper attire for the groom is determined by the degree of formality of the bride's dress. But in many weddings, the groom seems to be flexing his own sartorial muscle. This trend may have started with the marriage of Caroline Kennedy to Edwin Schlossberg. Her dress was formal and traditional. He wore a Willi Smith suit with a boxy jacket, baggy pants, a silver tie and heavy, clunky shoes.
Another groom, Philip Mitropoulos, had the regulation tuxedo and bow tie, but finished it off with a black silk shirt - a look that was somewhat in keeping with his wife's motorcycle-jacket wedding gown. For his wedding in Wimbledon, England, Roger Eaton, a photographer, appeared in a frock coat, a brocade vest and an antique shirt with a wing collar. He tied his hair in a ponytail with a strip of black leather, then pulled on a top hat. The get-up ''was slightly eccentric,'' Eaton admits.
Unusual wedding attire requires unusual flowers. Doris Bobik, the bride who wore red, carried a bouquet of 36 scarlet roses. At one New Year's Eve wedding, another bride carried a bouquet made of so-called ''healing crystals'' rather than ordinary flowers. Then, too, some bridal bouquets contain cascades of grapes. Unwieldy, perhaps, but different. Some couples are rejecting the church or synagogue wedding in favor of more unusual sites - especially if the sites are on the water.
Mitropoulos proposed to his wife on a foot boat after a race. It seemed fitting that their wedding ceremony would also occur on a boat, this one quite a bit larger, decked out in signal flags and tied firmly to a dock. Helene Silverman and Gary Panter held their wedding ceremony and reception on a barge moored in Brooklyn, looking out over downtown Manhattan. Alisanne Z. Garrison chose a bucolic setting. She and her father marched down a long path bordered by chestnut and linden trees to a ceremony on the grounds of her family's property.
She and her husband exited in a horse-drawn carriage.
Carole Holmes and Sean McCarthy's wedding was the picture of tradition, with hundreds of pastel roses, a tent, bridesmaids in pink taffeta and groomsmen in morning suits. But next to the standard tuxedo-clad band was a rollicking reggae group. When Roger of the ponytail and brocade vest and Belinda Eaton got married, the wedding and reception were also positively proper - in a 14th-century church with a boy's choir, followed by a garden reception - until he toasted his bride with a ''wedding rap.
It seems that as the rules disappear, many wedding receptions are dissolving into big whoop-de-doos. It was once taboo for the groom even to see the bride on their wedding day, until the ceremony started. That rule has long been ignored. But some brides and grooms are dressing early and mingling with guests before the ceremony. Blum, a wedding consultant in New York.
Indeed, the food at the wedding can display a bit of per-sonality. Rather than setting up a board groaning with prime rib and glazed ham, Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker asked their caterer to duplicate some of the dishes in ''Spa Food,'' a cookbook from the Sonoma Mission Inn in California. Because Kathy Bole worked for a catering company in New York, the meal was as personal as any other part of her wedding. There were platters holding finger-long purple potatoes, fennel, small artichokes and carrots and haricots verts.
Waiters shucked Belon, Wellfleet and Pine Island oysters to order. A buffet table was laid with sausages, roasted peppers and eggplant, pissaladiere, skewered grilled fish and rabbit terrine - and grills were stoked to roast lamb for the main course. Even the classic, flower-decked wedding cake has a new spin on it.
Many of Patti Paige's cakes may be tiered like the picture-book item, but that's where the similarity ends. She and her staff at Baked Ideas in New York have topped one cake with a cookie-replica of the Sydney Opera House for an Australian bride, and another with a lighted dome covered in spun sugar.
Another cake was white with purple polka dots, studded with dancing pink cupids. Watch list is full. Longtime member. Visit eBay's page on international trade. Item location:.
