Then you shouldn’t feel obligated. A wedding is already an occasion where people who care for you will bend over to make the effort to attend. On top of this asking people to dress according to a certain theme, color, or costume is an inconsiderate burden.

Well this could be super fun and a bit different,  lets see as far as costumes go characters from Hamilton, Beauty and the Beast, Danny and Sandy from Grease, The Kennedys, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers,Dirty Dancing (Baby and Johnny), Lucy & Ricky, Bonnie & Clyde, Sonny & Cher, a disco couple, a 1920’s couple,  Mary Poppins and the chimney sweep, Peter Pan & Tinkerbelle, and Cleopatra & Cesar.  Oh man this list could go on and on if you go have fun!  Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Go as fancy zombies! Regular wedding clothes with zombie makeup. 

Or you could wear a black dress and do cat ears or witch hat / gloves.

I am usually one for costumes made of things I mostly already own or can at least wear again, so these would involve “normal clothes” with some accessories as needed: 

Baby and Johnny from Dirty Dancing
Danny and Sandy from Grease
Men in Black
Mary Poppins and Bert
Cosmo and Wanda from Fairly Odd Parents
Any combination of the Scooby Doo characters 
Any combination of people from Bob’s Burgers
Waldo and Wanda from Where’s Waldo
Ron Swanson and Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec

What about doing something really simple like masquerade attire? Wear your normal dressy wedding attire and just wear the masks. Bonus, you can take them off during the event!

You could just wear something with Halloween-like colors like dark purple and black and pair it with Halloween nails if you don’t feel like dressing up.

Buy matching Christmas pajamas, or break out ones you already own.  Add slippers and candy.

Go as a slumber party.

If you’re not a fan of dressing up, I’d say just go as a witch with a simple dress (black if have it, but if not, any dress is fine) and a cheap black hat and plastic wand.

Or, my husband and I have gone as clue characters! I was Miss Scarlet one year (red dress and gloves) and Mrs. Peacock another (blue dress!) and he’s been Professor Plum and Mr. Green. Then we just bought a magnifying glass and candle stick to hold.

Wear regular nice clothes and tell folks you’re James Bond and the spy who snagged him.

I love the masquerade idea, as you can still dress up and be fancy like you would for a normal wedding but fit the theme  as well.

On the other hand, my Dh is quite a bit taller than I am, and I always wanted to go as the Jolly Green Giant and Sprout (probably from before your time!).
