Having one of those awesome weddings with a vintage aesthetic — Rockabilly, pin-up, hot rod, Psychobilly, pop art, or retro-inspired? Looking for the perfect accessories that could double as gifts for your wedding party? You’re going to go gaga for our sponsor Retro-a-go-go! Let’s take a peak at some of our favorite ideas for your retro-themed gifts and accessories for the guys and gals of your wedding party. I’m talking flasks (my favorite invention), parasols, belt buckles and more…
Abra and Jeff got hitched at Roshambo Farms, aka sun-drenched barnyard heaven — complete with chickens, turkeys, and goats. In the months leading up to the wedding, the bride’s mother amassed a collection of vintage silk and cotton lace, and Abra’s childhood friend used the pieces to fashion her dusty coral wedding gown. Guests also gifted the couple handwritten blessings (to be opened on the denoted anniversary).
Lots of DIY, thousands of origami stars, a feathery bouquet, a surprise lightsaber arch… and a bouquet tossed from a trebuchet! For reals, ya’ll. Except it went slightly differently than practiced. Plus, you’ll want to see how the groom and his best man made up for some lost time in this second marriage. OH, and for something completely rad, take a guess who wore the special Batman garter. It definitely wasn’t the bride!
Robots and aliens have invaded weddings this week! It’s making me want to break it down in a binary solo. This couple had all their guests bring something robo-related, including a mini mechanical baby! And barring one robot mishap at the ceremony, it was a total success. Even some YOLOing teenagers couldn’t hamper the awesomeness.
It’s one thing to take on a big wedding; it’s a whole other thing to plan two back-to-back ceremonies and parties! But once you see the retro fashion, Asian-inspired details, Chinese dancing lions, and sweet band tribute from the groom, you’ll totally agree that it’s a double happiness moment. OH, and a ceremonial martial arts board breaking by the bride? It happened — twice.
A wedding in an aviation museum is one thing, but this couple added in some amazing 1930s details that take it to another level. We’re talking photos that totally suggest Casablanca, complete with a Humphrey Bogart-style groom in a white jacket. The air mail-toting flower girls, the “Adventure Book,” and a spectacular venue space just make it all that much more awesome.
