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.

Wedding Trends: Chicken Wire

You may be wondering how chicken wire could ever be used at a wedding?  I have to admit I was questioning this trend too but just wait until you see some of these amazing ways that chicken wire can be used.  Once you look at some of these ideas it should clear any doubt you have.  Of course using chicken wire for your wedding decor is not for every bride but if you are having a rustic wedding or casual affair chicken wire may be the perfect decor item for you!

I love the idea of attaching chicken wire to a frame and using it as a holder for the place cards.   You can use the same idea and build a large wooden frame with chicken wire attached to make a dramatic and unique backdrop!

Take chicken wire and wrap it around to make a cone.  Add some flowers inside and these make simple DIY pew ends for the ceremony.

Any chicken wire basket or box can make a perfect card box or a great way to hold food during the reception.

Baskets can also make a great holder for flowers for a centerpiece on the guest tables!

Chicken wire wrapped around small glass vases or mason jars make beautiful votives when you put a candle inside.  You can even hang them to light up the ceremony or reception.
