Colourful Roald Dahl Themed Wedding with Bonus Bees!

Elly and Chris have always been inspired by the works of Roald Dahl, and as they hadn’t seen the theme being used before, thought it could be one they could let their creativity loose with – even if they did have to be careful with which table they named The Twits!

As well as naming their tables after his books, they also had Roald Dahl influences in their decorations, their incredible four-tiered homemade wedding cakes and stationery. They had little plushie Roald Dahl characters dotted around the venue, and some favourite quotes from the author as decor.

Winter Wedding with Copper Accents and Star Wars

Kerry and Dan didn’t have a pre-determined theme, they just wanted to include little bits of everything they love. Little nods to lots of different elements came together to produce a wedding that felt totally ‘them’. From the Star Wars posters as table markers, to the homemade cake, DIY flowers and all the decor that they did entirely themselves. They were massively inspired by the weddings featured on Rock n Roll Bride and of course, good old Pinterest.

“The colours were initially going to be white and copper/rose gold”, began the bride, “however the bridesmaid dresses everyone fell in love with were navy and we had Star Wars posters that were in completely different bold colours so we scrapped the strict colour scheme in the end! We’ve been together so long we just wanted it to be fun and relaxed for everyone including us.”

Star Wars Themed Wedding in New Orleans

Stephanie and Ryan’s description of their wedding is arguably my favourite of all time, and it reads like this: “A mash-up of video games, 80s soft rock, and Star Wars. Classy on the surface with layers of ridiculous undertones.” Absolute brilliance.

As was having their officiants dress as Hall and Oates and stay in character all day, they also incorporated a local tradition into their day known as a ‘second line’. This is where a New Orleans brass band parades is the group of people who follow behind the ‘main line’ of official players and just dance and enjoy the music. Which in this case was the theme to Star Wars and everyone had a lightsaber and a decorated umbrella. I repeat – brilliance.

What was the inspiration behind this awesome hybrid? Stephanie said, “Honestly, just Ryan and me and our mutual weirdness. We really love being strange and making people laugh, so we just took all the traditional things and then did it our own way.” Stephanie planned the entire thing herself, “with a dash of the husbandĘĽs input, of course! I had a day-of coordinator, Joy from Bridal 911, who helped keep everything on time and organised.”

Retro 1950s Wedding Meets Star Wars, Day of The Dead & Street Fighter!

One of the most frequent things you’ll hear on Rock n Roll Bride is to have the day YOU want, one that incorporates anything and everything you love: your day, your way. Holly and David, who married in the spring at Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel, did exactly that with not just one or two motifs, but more like four! And why not – I mean, just look at their wonderful day and the sea of smiles!

Holly said of the theme, “We originally wanted to go for a loose 1950s theme, which gradually became more and more not-loose (pink Cadillac, anyone?)! We also wanted to incorporate other parts of our interests, hence the Star Wars props, Day of The Dead decorations and cake, and the Street Fighter arcade machine! We were thinking of hiring some Stormtroopers to hand out the reception drinks, but our budget wouldn’t allow it – so yeah, 1950s meets Star Wars, meets Day of The Dead, meets Street Fighter!”

The inspiration to have an alternative wedding came mainly from looking on the Internet, and Rock n Roll Bride magazine. “The theme itself was decided after a drunken night in watching Grease!” she continued. “We’ve both loved the film since we were children, and had it on one night after a few rum and cokes. ‘Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could have a wedding with ’50s things in it?’ I said. ‘Well why don’t we, then?!’ was David’s response – that was all the encouragement I needed! I love all things 1950s and vintage and retro anyway, but thought we should probably try and stay traditional-ish as David’s not really into it as much as I am. After speaking to him about it the next day (when not under the influence of alcohol), he agreed that he meant what he said and would love something a bit different – I didn’t need telling twice!”

Star Wars Inspired Summer Festival Wedding

Sarah and Lukas’ summer wedding was held in a Barn in Oxfordshire. When they first met they bonded over a mutual love of Star Wars, so they added lots of Star Wars memorabilia to the day.

“It was fitting that the first wedding purchase we made were life-sized cardboard cut outs of R2D2 and C3PO!” laughed the bride. “They shared the stage with the band and spent the evening crowdsurfing during the set. We tried to make our day personal by including everything we love – bits of Star Wars, Middle Earth (specifically Bilbo Baggins’ 111th birthday party) pies, airstreams and of course, music.”

“Our wedding was over the August bank holiday, meaning we missed Reading Festival, so naturally our wedding took on a festival vibe. There were food trucks, live music and we spent the night camping in the fields surrounding the barn. We really wanted a laid back wedding where all our friends and family could relax and have a good time.”

Flash Mob Wedding in the South of France

Flash Mob Wedding in the South of France (10)

Emilie and Vincent met when working in Hong Kong. They wanted their wedding to be fun, quirky and a mix of all the things they like. They didn’t choose a specific theme but focused on gold pineapples, skulls, star wars and street art and wanted their wedding to blend fun with tradition. The bride found her incredible dip-dyed dress in China when she was there on her hen do!

They were married in Emilie’s family home, which was built by her grandparents. “They are no longer with us and I thought it was a good way to honour them”, said the bride. “When I proposed this idea to my mother she was so enthusiastic. This house means so much to my family and is filled with so many good memories. It’s also in the South of France so was perfect for an outdoor wedding!”
