Nathan Busse &
Are Getting Married!
August 14th, 2022
Boettcher Mansion | Golden, Colorado
Thank you so much for being part of our wedding! It means the world to celebrate with you. We will update this website with information as we have it, and will send out an email notification when it's ready to go.
There are two things we do know already, though, and we'd like to share them with you now in case a little extra planning time is helpful for you.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate children at the wedding. Although we love your little ones, this is an adult only affair. Thank you for understanding!
Secondly, we ask everyone who can attend to be fully vaccinated and boosted (current to what the standards will be in August 2022). We appreciate your cooperation with the way we're envisioning safety on our special day!
Ceremony and Reception
Something that's been a fun part of our relationship is throwing themed parties, and we'd love to make our wedding continue in that tradition. And so enters an attire theme for this event - Classic Glamour!
What is Classic Glamour?
Short answer -
Fancy ("black tie"), fabulous, red carpet
Eye catching, beautiful, and shiny outfits are all great, just please avoid wearing white, cream, or light silver
Long answer -
Based on the style of classic-era Hollywood cinema (circa 1932ish - 1941ish), Classic Glamour is a celebration of the red carpet classic look with a fabulous twist. This theme is especially meaningful to Julie because of her love of classic cinema and her career as a video editor, and we hope it reflects a spirit of celebration and optimism after so many years of pandemic malaise.
We've included a photo collage of some inspiration ideas below, but if you don't happen to already own something that fits the bill, no need to buy something new - just wear something formal that makes you feel the most beautiful, the most luxurious, the most...glamourous.
If you feel like you're ready to walk the red carpet, then you have the right thing!
The Classic Glamour Look
Suits with jackets
Collared shirts with a tie or bow tie
Long, flowy dresses
Fabrics with shine (silky, sequins-y, metallic)
Fabrics and styles with a great drape
Scarves or flowy capes as opposed to more structured jackets
If you really want to get specific about the theme, please note that Hollywood Glamour is distinct from "Gatsby", "Flapper", or "50s Cocktail".
(Super ultra specific language for the fashion nerds among us - When you really get down to it, elements of the look are fabric cut on a bias, a trumpet or train, a deep v bodice, and a low back, which occasionally includes a cowl. Flow and shine are prominent, and sometimes the gowns are accompanied by a scarf or cape.)
But of course, we're just splitting hairs here, the most important thing is to just wear something that makes you feel handsome and famous!
Here's some some images that include old Hollywood fashion as well as contemporary looks that incorporate classic glamour.
