The tie-dye technique for dyeing fabric has been around since the fourth century before current. Although I am guessing it is the bright swirling designs of the 60's that you are most likely referring to. The technique is still around today and although fashion trends changed in the 80's there certainly were old hold outs that continued to decorate clothing in that manner.

There is no traditional use of tie-dye in wedding ceremonies or parties, but that doesn't mean that you can't add it into yours. If tie-dye is important to you, you can add it into your wedding in many different ways. You can have people wear tie-dye, you can have tie-dye decorations, or you can even have a tie-dye station. Just because it isn't traditional, doesn't mean it's not a good idea.
