When She Used To Rock n Roll

Kirsten & Josh’s wedding not only had a fun, retro feel, but they really went all out with their 1950’s diner theme. I am crazy in love with the Brides entire outfit – from her Dorothy ruby slippers to her cute polka dot dress made by her Mother and friend Marnie Rogers, who designs clothes for Wintersun. The gorgeous Bridesmaid had a rockabilly style to them – especially their amazing hairdos!

For the reception, the couple went all out for a 50’s diner theme, where they designed and made everything themselves. The centrepieces were giant lolly jars and each table had a different type of old school lolly, which was the name of the table (“Sweethearts” “Milk bottles” “Ice creams” “Jelly beans” etc) The place cards were black & white candy striped lolly bags with everyone’s names on them, each painstakingly tied with little red ribbons. The placemats were old records that they picked up in an op shop and they had little gifts for everyone on the table – mini erasers in the shape of burgers, fries, hotdogs and donuts, plus vintage metal wind up toys.

Each table also had a diner style spring loaded napkin holder, salt and pepper shakers and tomato and mustard bottles. Then best of all, for dinner they served burgers, hotdogs, pizza and fries. I bet their guests were thrilled – no boring wedding food for them!

The celebrations continued into the night with the couple having their first dance to ‘I remember the Bride when she used to Rock n Roll’ by the Stray Cats, finishing the night by swaying along to ‘Earth Angel’.

Thanks to the Groom’s Mother Rhonda for sending me this wedding and to the couple for putting together all the awesome info for you all.

  1. What a sweet wedding! I LOVE the red and white tables – such a great example of what a bold fabric runner and napkins can do to make a look! Simple and perfect.

  2. Marnie

    Hi i’m Marnie, the person who made the wedding dress, bridesmaids outfits (including the elastic belts & scarves) and the groom’s and groomsmen’s vests. I just wanted to comment that it was my mum, Penny Rogers, who helped in the making of all these garments, and we couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out! Kirsten made a beautiful bride and my mum was very chuffed when Kirsten had her final fitting and cried! This was a fantastic wedding to be apart of, and i wish the very best for Josh and Kirsten for the rest of their lives. They are two very beautiful souls!! Luv u guys!!!
