Retro Wedding Theme

An edgier couple may choose a more 1950’s rock ‘n’ roll look to their vintage theme, incorporating bright pops of colour into flowers and decorations, as well as the fashion. Patterns such as polka dots are also a firm favourite for this era and are an interesting way to add fabrics and patterns to your day.

As Americana is a big source of inspiration to a 1950’s theme, why not use this as an influence, such as using candy coloured milkshake glasses as vases or even to serve your guests their dessert. You could also use brightly coloured paper pin wheels in various sizes strung as bunting, or as a backdrop for your cake table.

Vinyl records or sleeves could be used to display your table names, as place mats, a table plan or even as your guest book.

Another individual but reasonably priced way to add a quirky detail would be to paint glass coca cola bottles various colours and use them as mini vases for your flowers or for a more unique idea you could display balls of candy floss on sticks instead, allowing your guests to actually eat the centrepieces – not something that happens every day!

This theme is big, bold and fun so you really cannot go wrong with adding any colours or items that evoke that 50’s feel. The fashion should equally not shy away, as the bride think of choosing a shorter dresses that flares out below the knee, a stunning bird cage veil will really set off this look.

For your bridesmaids team a brightly coloured dress with a bright petticoat underneath to add an extra flash of colour. This also can be a glam look with a pair of killer heels, or alternatively make your look more relaxed and fun by wearing a pair of retro designed converse with your wedding dress.

A slick of red lipstick and you are ready to go! The men in pinstripe suits will perfectly reflect the style of the time. If your guests also dressed up in 50’s fashion, it would really help to feel like you had stepped back in time to this amazing time. A perfect result for any wedding!
