A 1950’s Themed Wedding
A 50’s wedding is bright and kitsch. You can run riot with girly patterns, as polka dots, checks and floral all float the 50’s boat! If you’re going the American route you might take inspiration from the 50’s diner and offer hot dogs, burgers, wafflees and ice cream sundaes for your wedding breakfast. And lets not forget the milkshakes for the kids! Music will play an important part, as will dancing, so make sure your dance floor is big enough for all of your guests!
My Top 5 Buys
Bridal head pieces can cost a fortune, if you are trying to save your pennies and are having an alternative wedding, this could be just the ticket!
Imagine having one of these retro styled music players playing your favourite 50’s tunes while you mingle with your guests during cocktail hour. Listen to Vinyl, CD’s and you can even plug in your USB stick!
If you are expecting a sunny day, these retro glasses are just the Bees Knees, I love the colours.
Vivien Of Holloway does some fabulous 50’s frocks that would be great for bridesmaids!
I love these little popcorn boxes, I think that would make a really cute favour. Or you could have them at a snack bar so people could carry their popcorn to the dance floor!
The Dress Shop
Candy Anthony creates some amazing, unique wedding dresses. Have a look at their gallery of real brides for some inspiration.
Another idea is to hire a jukebox, so that you can lean up against it and do your best impression of The Fonze, “Aaaaeeeyyy!”
The First Dance
The DIY Tutorial
I absolutely love this rainbow petticoat tutorial shared on Rock N Roll bride. If you want to add a little bit of colour to your wedding dress this is a fab way of doing it!
Would you consider a 50’s style wedding?
