I have been sitting on a new blog category idea and some special wedding theme inspiration boards a for a few months now. The reason I’ve held back sharing them, is because I wanted to wait for the right time to introduce them. As fate would have it, there is some very exciting news for all you future bride and grooms out there directly related to my new wedding inspiration idea and theme board, so it can’t wait any longer.
I’ll start by introducing our new category:
Wedding Themes Inspired By Song
The idea is to take inspiration from a song you love and use the music, lyrics or video clip to help design your wedding theme. It’s a wonderful way to kick start ideas for your wedding design and draw inspiration from your love of a particular song.
One of the first song themes I planned to feature was ‘Marry Me’ by Train. And as you will see at the end of this post, it was timely I share the board with you right now. So relax and enjoy the clip, take inspiration from the matching wedding board and read on to discover why Train’s song ‘Marry Me’ could mean more to you than just another pretty love song!
And here is my board inspired by the video clip:
Retro Vintage Wedding Theme
Board Details: Taking inspiration directly from the Marry Me music clip – which takes place in an old 50s diner – I decided to go with a retro vintage wedding theme. I used the waitresses’ blue uniform and a wonderful ‘Waitress’ movie poster as my starting point and came up with a aqua blue and white colour scheme, accented with pretty pops of pink and yellow. Retro style elements include 1950s style dresses for the bride and bridesmaids, vintage inspired pink and white posy bouquets and a vintage getaway car. Decor details include pretty fabric flag banners, a bright tablescape with retro glasses with striped straws, aqua coloured linens with pink and white striped accents and a waitress style clip-board for menu settings. Sweet retro desserts include cupcakes, popcorn, ice-cream cones, homemade apple pie and a soda fountain.
