When Frank151 editor Lily Waronker married Jonny Gordon at the Alexandria Ballrooms in LA, they got groovy about it. The couple love Prince and the movie Boogie Nights, so they sent out purple invitations and set up their reception like a disco. Of course, the dress code reflected the theme — at least for the bride, who wore a purple lace veil as an homage to the iconic singer and didn't back away from sparkle when it came to her wardrobe.

While Lily's initial gown — a Jonathan Cohen creation brought to life by the designer's partner, Sarah Leff — was made of velvet and stitched with shimmering embroidery, it was her thrifted party dress that we admired most. Lily went shopping in her hometown of LA at Paper Bag Princess, where she found a sequined halter maxi that encouraged guests to dance the night away. Scroll to see all her festive bridal looks that prove outfitting a theme can be pretty darn classy.
