Couples get decked out in theme costumes ranging from Old West to Victorian to Civil War costumes. Or anything that strikes their fancy.”That’s why we chose the Hotel Colorado,” she said, for its historic Victorian ambiance. “We just want to have fun.”The show will offer loads of information about what it takes to stage an especially spectacular wedding.
