Flamingo Pink and Green Vintage Wedding Inspiration

Today, we are swooning over this wildly creative vintage wedding inspiration! Inspired by our flamingo wedding invitations, this team put together a fun retro wedding that pays homage to the rockin’ 1950s.

We love how perfectly the black and white decor pairs with the splashes of green and pink. The vintage clothing, lawn decor, and throw-back treats make this unique piece so much fun. Remember to plan a wedding that’s true to the two of you! This electric theme is great for a summer wedding. Allow guests to relax, and dress in attire from the 50s for this type of party! If you have a big enough space, this would be the perfect scenario for an intimate backyard wedding.

Greenery Ideas for a Green Wedding Theme

When it comes to floral arrangements, flowers get all the “Oohs and Ahhs,” but here’s a trend that’ll give blooms a run for their money: arrangements with greenery.

Using greenery, like olive branches, ivies, ferns, boxwood shrubs, eucalyptus, and lily grass, not only offers brides a budget-friendly alternative to flowers, but also creates a refreshing look for the wedding day. This is especially beautiful during the Winter and Spring months.This green wedding theme is affordable, and always looks chic.

Greenery is no longer bound to one kind of arrangement (i.e. garland), but looks gorgeous in bouquets, centerpieces, and even within the wedding day decor. With so many different hues, from forest green to sage, this beautiful color is at your fingertips.

Whether it’s a rustic, garden or an elegant outdoor wedding, we love everything green on this wedding invitation and think it suits any wedding style.

Here’s how greenery can be used for an elegant outdoor wedding:

Bridesmaid Dresses:
Nature comes in many hues of green, so why can’t your bridesmaid dresses? Let your venue’s environment inspire your wedding theme. Forest, olive, moss and sage greens are up for grabs when it comes to choosing your bridesmaid dress colors.

Bouquet:
There’s something special about an arrangement made with a variety of ivies, ferns and other green plants—so simple, yet elegant and effortless. Forget the traditional flower bouquet. Add contrasting greenery into your arrangements: two-tone leaves, dark forest ferns, and light sage greens to make your bouquets pop.

Escort Card Wall:
Go bold and create an oversized “art piece” like this quilted garden wall. It makes the best first impression when guests enter the reception. The strung ribbon and escort cards on lush green vines and white roses are a big and daring statement that will be remembered.

Tablescape:
Elevate a garden theme with details like this lime green garland that beautifully embraces the chairs. The greenery and big bloom centerpieces with long stemmed candles set the table with romance.

Whether it be a simple outdoor or an elegant themed wedding, greenery is a perfect accent to any wedding day. Be bold and unique while keeping your wedding true to the two of you.
