    OMG.  Your wedding sounds amazing!  The theme is so cool!  As long as it feels authentic to you and your partner, there is no way to go over the top.  A wedding should reflect who you are, and this sounds like you’ve hit the nail on the head!  I love love love the idea of half aprons on the bridesmaids…please have ruffles!  Or pockets!  Or both!

    I think it sounds like a lot, but I also don’t know you. Would this make sense to your guests? Are you both in the food industry? Would your wedding party members be ok with this? If I showed up with BM’s in aprons my guests would be like “WTF” but then again I had a ton of pug elemeents in the wedding which made sense to guests because we have 3 and do pug rescue. It all depends on how well your guests know you in connection to the theme. If you’re both very obviously into this theme in real life, then I say go for it!!!!

    Go to independant bake shops, you can get cute things like mini spatulas!!!!!

    What about having the girls all wear something neutral like a black or beige dress and then doing coordinating Jessie Steele aprons? Her aprons are so stylish they could practically pass as dresses anyway!

    Wow, those aprons are amazing! I bet some DO wear them as a dress… for their husbands 🙂

    If your theme to really shine, you need to focus more on the food people will be eating! Do you have a caterer lined up?

    What about having the BM’s wear apron dresses? If you do a google image search there was some cute apron style dresses that don’t look like kids clothes.

    If I saw so many cooking themed things in a wedding I would wonder if it was some kind of “stay in the kitchen, woman!” joke but it sounds like people that know you would know its related to profession and hobby and not housework.

    That sounds like so much fun.  I would love to attend a wedding where the couple thought outside the of the box the entire wedding through!  But that’s just me… and a lot of the other bee’s.  Vintage aprons would be so awesome.  And, they don’t have to wear it the entire not, right?  I especially love the bouquets and bouts, that is so cool.  Just make sure the bouquets aren’t too heavy to carry 🙂

    Thats sounds like a wedding I would love to go to! I’m not ballsy enough to go with a full theme but I think you should totally go for it.

    I think it’s a really cool theme, but I would tone it down.  Most things sound really cute, but if I were a BM, I would not want to wear an apron (not even a half one).  Maybe for a few fun pictures, but definitely not for the ceremony or during the reception.  Obviously if the bride said I had to wear it, then I would because it’s her wedding, but I wouldn’t be too happy about it.  The chef coats sound a little over the top too.  The bouquets and bouts sound really cute.  Those are more subtle things that get the theme across rather than having your bridal party dress up. But in the end it’s your wedding and I don’t know you, so you should do what you want!
