Our take on American Gothic......

I used the American Gothic painting as a parody at our rehearsal dinner.  I supplied two (cut off) pair of overalls and two flowery dresses....And of course the pitchfork!
All the participants had to do was get behind the frame, choose what to wear. It was interesting and FUN watching the groups of people together, how serious some were and how funny some were. Keeping a straight face was almost impossible for some.  I printed off at least one hard copy of each participant and will put them into an album for the Happy Couple to have. What a fun way to remember their rehearsal dinner night.

A little glimpse at some of the pics.   See what I mean?  It was great fun! This idea could be tried with several different themes.  
Halloween would be a great time to try it!
