Lana Del Ray Meets Midsommar Inspired Wedding on a £2000 Budget

Midsommar may be a horror movie, but the aesthetic is anything but scary, which is why Shar and Scotty were so heavily inspired by it for their not-at-all Halloweeny summer wedding. When Covid hit, it made them realise what they really wanted (and didn’t want) for their day so they had their reception of cake and informal, unplanned speeches at the bride’s mum’s house and spent less than £2,000 to boot!

“Our wedding was just happy, bright, rainbows and smiles” Shar told us. “I wore roller skates, people wore cool hats and there were lots of flowers! Midsommar, if it wasn’t a horror, heavily inspired us as well as Frida Kahlo and Lana Del Ray. We wanted an informal, fun day and continued being defiant in the face of a global pandemic, we warned to bring some joy back into the lives of the people around us.”

Shar’s dress was £120 and came from the ASOS bridal collection. With it she wore a massive flower crown, Dr Marten Sinclair boots, Stance skate socks that said ‘fries before guys’ (which tied in with her son’s fries jumpsuit) and rainbow Snag Fish net tights.

Gothic Geek Wedding with Skulls, Tequila & a Donnie Darko ‘Frank’ Mask

Abby and Jack’s April wedding was influenced by their love of skulls, tequila, music and their favourite films and TV shows – ‘gothic geek’ is how they described it to their friends.

They incorporated Lord of the Rings and Nightmare before Christmas into their vows and had a Star Wars cantina band on loop for 10+ minutes while they signed the register. The newly married couple walked back up the aisle too Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, the perfect upbeat song to to get the celebrations underway, and of course they had some great tunes playing during the wedding breakfast, too.

“We wanted the day to reflect us and to not be a completely traditional wedding”, Abby told us. “I was on Pinterest a lot and took bits that I liked to make our own. We’re not the most imaginative couple, but I like to think that we did ourselves proud. We did keep some traditional things though; I wore white (despite friends guesses that I’d be in black or purple!) and we still had the speeches and first dance.”

A Crazy Colourful Wedding with a Leopard Print & Dinosaur Cake

Shell and Mark celebrated their wedding on 5th June and while they had a lot of friends and family that couldn’t be there, they still wanted to go all out and have the colourful wedding of their dreams for their ten guests. As a glamping blogger, and using Rock n Roll Bride as their main source of inspiration, Shell’s vision was for a camping meets colourful party at Glamping Thorpe in the Oxfordshire countryside.

The bride made all the décor and centrepieces, she customised the wedding favours and collected vintage coloured vases. She made close to 100 multi coloured and leopard print pom poms which were used in the wedding arch. Little Cherry Cake Company made their incredible cake, but the dinosaur cake topper was DIY too.
