A Decade in Wedding Trends: From Vintage Tea Cups to Food Trucks, a Nostalgic Look Back at the Last Ten Years

Guest Contributor

January 3, 2020

A brand-new decade is here and it's made us come over all nostalgic. Rock n Roll Bride was launched in 2007, so we've seen a hell of a lot of wedding themes and trends come and go. With the help of our friends at Most Curious (who are pretty darn excellent at predicting trends IMHO) we thought it would be fun to look back at the last ten years and have a bit of a laugh at our own expense. For your viewing pleasure, here's a nostalgic glance back at the last decade in wedding style.

A Free Wedding Event at the Town Hall Hotel, London

Kat

Love That Smile

February 20, 2019

Bethnal Green's Town Hall Hotel is a real hidden gem. From the original art deco interiors, the dramatic marble staircases, original wooden panelled rooms and their very own ceremony chambers, its the perfect spot for the wedding of East London-loving urban dwellers. The entire place has been sympathetically restored in its original art deco finery so stepping through those grand front doors really is a little bit like stepping back in time.

How To Get the Best Out of Attending a Wedding Show

Emma + Rich

February 4, 2019

Going to your first wedding show can be a daunting experience. However, if you’re properly prepared and you go in with an open mind they are really, really fun! One of my very favourite alternative wedding shows is The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza which is taking place on March 16th & 17th in Birmingham. I’ll be there signing books and showcasing our brand-new veil collection with Crown and Glory (it’s the only wedding show you’ll be able to see these beauties in-person this season) so I hope to see lots of your beautiful faces there!

Low Key but Luxe: How to Have a Budget Wedding that Still Looks Fancy AF

Ellie Kime

January 18, 2019

If there’s one thing we know to be true in wedding world ‘19, it’s that engaged couples are looking to save as much money as they possibly can. In fact, some reports coming though at the moment state that the £25k ‘average’ wedding budget that’s thrown around by the media may have in fact decreased to something much closer to £12k in the last year or so (thanks Brexit, thanks Trump). However, what that doesn’t mean is that 2019 couples want their budget savvy weddings to look cheap, far from it in fact. Rock n Roll brides in particular are, if anything, becoming even more creative and experimental with how they pull off a killer wedding on a budget. Today, our friends at Most Curious Wedding Fair are here to tell you how to do it.

If you've been following the blog for a while you'll know that for the last couple of years we've done a LOT of wedding fairs. They're super fun (I will ALWAYS love meeting you guys!) but also super exhausting. So this year we've decided to just do ONE and that one is, in my humble opinion, the best one out there - the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza in Birmingham! So why is it so great? We'll I'm glad you asked...

In a world saturated with wedding fairs it can be hard to know which one is right for you. There are even now a whole new breed of ‘unique’ wedding shows, from alternative to vintage and everything in between, making the choice of which one to visit extra confusing! Being dubbed the bridal event for hipsters, A Most Curious Wedding Fair is hitting Norwich this Sunday and London on 7-8 March, but what exactly is a hipster wedding fair? This is just a bit of fun, of course, but here is the ten most important things you should check to make sure you're in the right place!

The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is the Best Alternative Wedding Show in The UK, Here’s Why…

Call me cynical, but these days, I can't seem to move for a new 'alternative' wedding fair. They're cropping up all over the place this year, but there was just one that started it all... In early 2012, Sassy of Assassynation Photography, Jo of The Couture Company and Rawhide Corsets and Vikki of Liliia had a dream. They dreamt of a wedding fair that was truly alternative and one that showcased only the best of the best alt wedding suppliers. They wanted to have a place to host the kinds of suppliers they saw ignored by other, mainstream and vintage, wedding events.

One Love: An Inspirational Wedding Show for Gay & Lesbian Couples

Kat

Robbins Photographic

September 18, 2013

Although times they are a-changing, gay and lesbian couples have been long overlooked in the wedding industry. While there are many amazing wedding suppliers that cater for and love to work with same-sex couples, there has yet to be a really cool, all inclusive wedding event that all engaged couples - no matter their preferences - can go to and feel comfortable and accepted. Sure, there have been a few magazines and events dedicated to gay weddings, but (and I hate to say it) but most of the ones I've seen have been slightly cheesy and erring on the side of tacky.

The Vintage & Alternative Wedding Fair

Vintage has become a bit of a dirty word in the wedding world. It's been overdone more than any trend' I've ever known... and in many cases pretty badly. But vintage weddings as a concept are beautiful and some of the most creative and beautiful weddings that I've featured have fallen under that 'vintage' banner. In fact vintage weddings are not limited to pearls, lace and mismatched crockery - they can be so much more than that, the only limit is your imagination.can be so much more than that, the only limit is your imagination.
