Colorful Outdoor Wedding with a 50s Theme

Today, this colorful 50s themed wedding is rocking our world! From the polka dot dresses to catching a ride on the zoo carousel, this entire wedding day was filled with so much character. This is also the perfect inspiration for a Kate Spade wedding theme. We love all of the vibrant colors paired with classic black and white tones.

How Did the Proposal Happen?

It was a random Monday night, when Jeff called Joy into the kitchen to see a trick he had taught the dogs. Jeff asked her to hold 3 dog treats in her hand, and shut her eyes.

Joy was secretly hoping he had somehow taught Mike to stand on Louis’ back, the way that goats can sometimes be stacked, one up on top of the other. However, that is not the trick that Jeff had up his sleeve. After a few minutes, Joy looked down to find that each dog was sitting in front of her with a small cardboard sign hung around their neck. The signs read, “Will”, “You”, “Marry”….and then there was Jeff, down on one knee, holding a sign that read, “Me?” Joy said “Yes!” followed by, “Oh my god, we’re in sweatpants!!” They laughed and kissed each other before sharing the big news with all of their loved ones.

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.

Dreams Come True Spring Boho Wedding

Today, we have fallen in love with this sweet fairytale inspiration. From youthful spring wedding colors to angelic butterflies, there is so much to swoon over within this styled shoot! If you enjoy vintage decor, we know you’ll enjoy this fun boho wedding.

The premium, floral laser cut wedding invitations inspired this fabulous team of wedding vendors. The relaxed, garden wedding venue exudes some bohemian flare without overpowering the reception decor. The funky mason jar glasses, gold silverware, and varying array of plants scattered across the tablescape tie in the theme so well!

The 3-D Our Ever After sign may be our favorite piece of all. It really kicks the wedding theme up a notch, and helps the cohesion come full circle. It’s details like these that give us butterflies.

Tip: If you and your partner aren’t needing lengthy transpiration, consider a more retro way to travel from the wedding reception to your overnight hotel! This vintage Vespa could not be any more adorable. Add this option to your list of potential wedding exit ideas.
