Wedding Trends: 1960’s Mod Inspiration

One trend in wedding themes for 2013 is a 1960’s mod wedding!  Think bold splashes of color and geometric prints to name just a few of the decor elements.  As with many wedding trends they come and go throughout the years.   If you love the look of this era or not sure what it is all about, take a look at these inspiration ideas to see whether you feel this trend should stay for a while or stay in the 1960’s.

I have to say my favorite thing about a mod wedding is the style and fashion it brings.

The hair and makeup bring these looks together.  For a 1960’s makeup look, pair bold eyelashes with a more nude lip.

For the reception, include geometric prints in your decor.  Yellow and black is always a popular color palette for a mod wedding.  Pair with bright colored flowers to finish the look.

Choose a cake that fits the theme and incorporates the color or geometric pattern used throughout the wedding.

One of the best parts about having a Valentine’s wedding is that the colors are picked out for you.  You can’t go wrong with a red and/or pink wedding for Valentine’s Day.

If you want a little twist on a the traditional red and pink colors, try combining turquoise and red.  Or add other subtle colors like yellow, mint or lavender.

One of my favorite ideas is to have a “kissing booth” as your photo booth for the wedding.  Adorable!

50’s Inspired Wedding

If you are having a 50’s inspired wedding or love vintage weddings then you have to take a look at this inspiration board!

Jillian and Scott Mason knew they wanted an outside wedding and that’s one of the reasons the couple chose Glendalough Manor.  They knew it would be the perfect backdrop for their 50’s themed wedding.   Jillian wore a 50’s inspired gown from Etain Bridal Boutique and a birdcage veil.  I thought the best part about her bridal attire was her white gloves. Perfect for her theme!  The bride carried a bouquet of dark red callalilys and roses accented with white feathers. The bridesmaids wore black wiggle dresses and completed their look with red flowers in their hair.  The groomsmen wore black traditional tuxes with red bowties and dark red calla lilys accented their tuxes.

The bride told me she dreamed of having a vintage car at her wedding and was so happy she was able to have one their for photographs.  I thought the bride and groom next to the car was some of the best pictures!

The couple chose black and gold lace linens for the reception with black satin napkins.  The table centerpeices were candelabras and vintage bird cages both adorned with red roses.  They also used the aisle arrangements again as centerepices….a great way to save money on flowers!

Jillian and Scott said it was a perfect day and they wished they could do it all over again!

If you are having a 50’s inspired wedding or a themed wedding we would love to hear about it!

Happy Planning!
