I have just started designing a fantasy novel which takes place in medieval Europe. It is one of those types of fictional fantasies that also has a sense of realism to it. Unlike Eragon or Dragonlance where it is all made up, it takes place in a setting which is real. In this case it is Medieval Europe. In this novel the main character survives a fire on his wedding day, however his wife dies. Now on a quest for revenge he starts on a journey to track down the ones who started the fire. However they are no ordinary humans. There will be werewolves, vampires etc. Now down to the real issue I have. The romantic thing is the whole novel he does not take off his wedding gown. A tuxedo or swallowtail suit, whatever I choose. However that would be a historical inaccuracy. They did not have that in medieval Europe. Keeping that in mind however this is fantasy, in Europe they didn't have demons, vampires and gargoyles either. So where is the line? If I took out the tuxedo part the romantic part of the novel would take a big loss and the novel would not be as appealing. So do you guys think I could keep the inaccuracy for the sake of the romantic plot?
