Neon Tropics Meets Retro Havana on Friday 13th

When you think of a Friday 13th wedding you’d be forgiven for assuming it would likely be a spooky, horror or Halloween themed bash, but Elizabeth and Adam wanted to flip this idea on its head, instead opting for a wedding theme that represented their colourful personalities! The colour scheme primarily featured hot pink, lush tropical greens and metallic gold and oh my goodness does it look all kinds of wonderful!

They were married in April in Cincinnati. They chose Rhinegeist Brewery for both their ceremony and reception because they liked how they were able to curtain off one side of the room and have a cosy ceremony, then open it up and change all the decor and furniture for the reception and party. They they hired a day-of coordinator to do this for them during the drink’s reception so they could still enjoy this time with their guests.

Mid-Century Mexicana Wedding in Melbourne

Em and Nick have turned the feel-good vibes up to 5000 today with their chic Melbourne warehouse wedding and its ‘mid-century Mexicana’ theme. I mean, a wedding with a neon “I like your face, loser” sign is going to be pretty bloody special, isn’t it?

Not only is their day incredible to look at, but Em and Nick totally bossed the wedding planning side of things too, and they’ve shared some cracking advice as well as their gorge love story.

“We decided right away that we didn’t want a sit down wedding or a formal venue, because it doesn’t reflect us a couple and what we love sharing together,” Em says. “We shared these decisions with Kate from Good Day Rentals, our Stylist, who then had us put together Pinterest boards of all things we loved that weren’t Wedding related. By the time we were done, the boards were flowing with pins of 90s nostalgia films, Parks and Rec quotes, neon lights, and a lot of things we didn’t see a correlation between. Kate did though because she put together our theme (Mid-Century Mexicana) and had us awestruck. It was the ultimate combination of us as individuals and as a couple.”

Glamorous Celestial & Neon New York Wedding

Alysha and Cody’s ‘celestial neon’ wedding was exactly that – a day made of dreams. Their glamorous ceremony, held in the coolest industrial warehouse space in Brooklyn, New York, was bedecked with sparkly, starry wonder and neon lights as dazzling as the couples themselves. It promised to be lit AF, and it totally delivered.

First and foremost, let’s talk about Alysha’s DIVINE galactic wedding dress, which inspired the whole day. “I I had heard that you’re supposed to pick the dress first and then everything else falls into place,” Alysha explains. “I knew I didn’t want white, so I fell into this dove grey kick, and before you know it I had an appointment at the Hayley Paige trunk show at Kleinfeld. My dress kinda looked like a galaxy, so I thought ‘That’s it’. I was obsessed with paper moons from the 1920s, so it was a perfect theme: moons, stars and celestials.”

This glamorous, old-school celestial vibe extended to the wedding stationery from Go Go Snap on Etsy, and their gorgeous Catbird and Sofia Zakia wedding rings too.

Vegas-Inspired Wedding with Snazzy Suits, Sequins & All the Confetti!

Gemma’s ‘Suits and Sequins’ summary of her wedding to Guy is very apt, as in true Sinatra style they did things their way. Their Peckham wedding, shot by megababe Devlin Photos, was emotional and incredible from start to finish, from that sparkly green wedding dress (swoon) to the ‘Silly Old Beans’ sign they were married under, and the story behind their couples’ amazing portraits…

“There wasn’t a straight up inspiration for the wedding,” explains Gemma, who works in events as a day job. “With any event I plan I can find that really restrictive, and the beauty of a wedding is that you don’t have to have those boundaries. It can just be about you two, even if nobody else ‘gets it’. Having said that, we did ask everyone to dress in suits and sequins, and it was amazing how everyone turned up – the best dressed bunch of wonderful people.”

Speaking of sequins, Gemma looked every inch the glittery goddess in a spangly green number. “My dress was made by my bridesmaid, Nadia. I found the whole focus on what I was wearing quite overwhelming – it seemed to be everyone’s first question! Even though I left making it until a few weeks before the wedding, we had been searching for the perfect fabric for a few months. I wanted the perfect deep green so I felt like a Supreme. The dress shape was taken from a £12 New Look dress I loved the shape of on myself, which we then adapted.”

Neon Hair & Hot Pink Boots: A Vegas Elopement Planned in 10 Days

Katie and Eric had one goal for their wedding: To be married. Even though they’d been taking about getting hitched for a while, they decided to elope in Vegas just ten days before!

“When you elope, the theme kind of just becomes ‘you two'”, said Katie. “Our day was very us – full of colour, laughter and love! When you plan everything so quickly the internet is a wonderful thing. I used Google, Pinterest, Yelp and Rock n Roll Bride to help us find vendors in Las Vegas, a city we are not native to. I made a ton of phone calls and emailed so many people in the days leading up to our big day.”

“The starting point for inspiration was the fuchsia pink velvet mod boots I wore. I was originally looking for silver boots that I had just found online which were from & Other Stories, but then Eric spotted the bright pink ones in the store and suggested those instead. He knows me so well, that must be why I married him! Everything kind of fell into place after that. My flowers and hot pink lipstick all went back to the boots. Even when we were picking out Eric’s navy blue velvet jacket, we thought, ‘Will it look good with the boots!?'”

The National Vintage Wedding Fair Celebrates the 1980s

1980s bridal shoot (3)

The eighties gets a bad rep: The big shoulder pads, the garish make up, the even bigger hair… But that didn’t stop the National Vintage Wedding Fair embracing it! To celebrate their upcoming wedding shows, they wanted to play homage to the decade of excess and create these promotional images in all their over-the-top glory!

“Over the last year we have styled a series of vintage shoots covering different decades to help promote our National Vintage Wedding Fair“, organiser Kate told me. “We started with the 1950s, which many feel is the most popular decade for vintage wedding styling, then shot the 1940s, 1960s and 1970s. I was fully intending on featuring the 1930s next but last minute did a massive U turn, choosing to shoot the 1980s. This was quite risky as many don’t feel that the 1980s is vintage, especially for weddings, but I really wanted to show that this era of decadence can look fab. The looks are all very glam, as was the 80s!”
