1950s Retro, Tropical & Kitsch Wedding

1950s-retro-tropical-kitsch-wedding-21

Eva and Jay’s cute ‘n colourful wedding was inspired by the 1950s, tropical motifs and a huge dollop of kitsch! “Jay and I both love vintage decor, vehicles and clothing”, said the bride. “We have a 1949 Chrysler, a 1970s boat and our house is all decorated like the 1950s!”

They got married at the State Fairground in Minnesota. “We have a lot of pride in our state fair so it was a fun spot. We did our first look in an alleyway by a bar and for ambience we got to hear two guys cussing each other out at the near by transit station! We encouraged everyone to dress up inn 1950s outfits and our cake topper was from Jay’s parents wedding.”

The ceremony was super sweet and the couple sat on a swing that they’d added to their homemade arch. “My dad and I pulled up to the ceremony in an old car, 1955 Bel Air”, she continued. “It made for more of a dramatic entrance. Also I had my veil covering my face. My uncle was the pastor since that is his actual job in life. It was nice to have someone that knew us speak on our behalf. We also had an uncle, aunt and great uncle perform a song, My Romance by James Taylor. A family friend made a wedding arch with our names on it and he added a swinging bench to the structure so we got to sit and swing during the music. Our ceremony was more focused on laughter and love than the bible.”

Although you may know it as an awesome place to pick up a designer bargain (the Vivienne Westwood store is always the one I gravitate to first!) did you know that they offer a bridal range too?

Brands such as Oscar de La Renta, Temperley London, Gina, Savoy Taylors Guild and Brooks Brothers will all be taking part.

To celebrate their bridal event from 10th-19th February (where many of the boutiques will be bursting with exclusive bridal collections for this limited period) Bicester Village would like to give TWO Rock n Roll Bride readers and an exclusive preview and £2000 to spend!!

The prize

Two lucky readers (and two friends) will both win a total £2000 to spend on their wedding outfits at Bicester Village. The prize will give you £1500 and your friend £500 (who can be your bridesmaid, your mum, your fiance, or any member of your wedding party!)

Travel, Culture and Love Wedding… with a Lost Boys Cake!

travel-culture-and-love-wedding-with-a-lost-boys-cake-55

Ru and Matt’s wedding perfectly reflected them. The bride wore a striking Jenny Packham dress with messy, boho hair and they both had their tattoos proudly on display! Their epic cake played homage to their favourite 80s movie, Lost Boys, and they used lots of deep colours in the flowers and decor to show their love of all things Moroccan.

“Our wedding was very music-orientated”, said Ru, “we were also influenced by travel mostly, colour, Morocco, Thailand, elephants and boho! One of my favourite things was our cake from Little Cherry Cake Company. We didn’t want everything to be serious. We also had a Game of Thrones themed card box which I made.”

Rock Music Themed Wedding

Heather and Bill’s New Jersey wedding could not have been a more perfect example of a Rock n Roll wedding if it tried! The blue haired bride and her punk rocker groom’s big day was inspired by their love of music.

“Bill and I connected over our love of music”, said Heather. “When we first started talking, we used to swap CDs with each other. Right before we started dating, he bought me Nine Inch Nails tickets for my birthday (pretty much the moment he had my heart). We see a concert about once a month, our living room is decorated with band posters, I play guitar and ukulele, he plays guitar and keys, and it’s a constant debate over who has better music on their iPod (it’s me!) Since it’s such a major part of our lives, it made sense to make it our wedding theme.”
