Celebrating the anniversary of Ziggy Stardust with this glam rock David Bowie-inspired wedding inspiration

David Bowie’s iconic concept album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” was released 47(!) year ago on June 16, 1972, so it was more than fitting to showcase this amazing glam rock wedding inspiration right around the anniversary. The bride, groom, and their best crew were all in a band so they rocked their amazing outfits with metallics, velvet, fringe, tassels, faux fur, and tinsel.

Don’t miss the epic florals, star-shaped EVERYTHING, velvet suits, the bride’s jumpsuit, and the cake that any Bowie fan would love…

With tabletop jukeboxes and condiment caddies on every table, an electric guitar as our guestbook, ice cream sundae wedges on my feet, 45s lining the aisle, my bridesmaids carrying albums down the aisle instead of bouquets, guitar pick place cards, and a working jukebox at the front of the ceremony space, and guitar pick flower boutonnieres, our wedding was a combination of retro style and rock 'n' roll.
