If you’re not a lover of the traditional fairytale weddings that look as if they were all taken from the same bridal magazine, then you should opt for something more unique and, well, something more you. Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd, be original and go with a retro pinup-inspired wedding. However, since winter is at our doorsteps, you should find a way to incorporate wintery elements into your pinup wedding to create a unique and magical atmosphere. Here are some ideas to help you create your own version of a fairytale wedding.
When deciding where you’ll host the wedding reception, you need to figure out whether you’ll have a small intimate wedding or a big one, since this will affect your venue options. However, regardless of the size of your guest list, try to imagine the perfect location. Whether you opt for a boutique hotel or a vintage restaurant, you should make sure that it will convey a magical pinup atmosphere that will be to your taste.
Not until you include the classic pinup motif, polka dots, into the interior décor, will the venue resemble a vintage winter dream. You should find a way to combine pinup elements with wintery ambient which will help you create an original setting for your wedding. This is one of the opportunities to express your personality, taste and creativity, so don’t be afraid to go with something different and unusual. Since red is the color usually associated with the pinup style, it will be a perfect choice for your winter wedding, as it also reflects the festive spirit of the holiday season. The combination of red and white will be perfect to honor both the pinup style and wintery atmosphere, but you can add some other hues, such as black or gold, to create diversity. You can decorate tables by opting for mason jars with red lace and ribbons or with polka dots design. In addition, you can easily find some DIY projects for creating beautiful centerpieces from pinecones that will reflect the wintery feel. Furthermore, you can go with vintage handkerchiefs with red-gold design, thus conveying the festive spirit of the holiday season, while staying true to the pinup theme. Lighting is an important element of interior design, so you can place a lot of candles on the tables, or use paper lanterns with vintage art-deco details.
Don’t feel obliged to play a genre of music that you don’t like but that’s traditionally played at weddings. Regardless of whether you like rock, pop, metal or even hardcore, it’s important that your wedding reflects who you are. You and your partner should have a first dance to your favourite song, even if it’s not to the taste of the others. In the true spirit of 1950s theme, you can make up a list of the most popular songs from that period.
If you want to look like a true pinup bride, you know what it means – tea-length dress, birdcage veil and short white gloves. Your wedding dress is a perfect opportunity to combine wintery and pinup elements. Use lacy sleeves, white feathers, and sparkles, and you’ll look like a pinup snow queen. Since you don’t want to be cold, you can use faux fur to keep you warm, or beautifully designed polka dot scarves. Your bridesmaids can wear red tea-length polka dot dresses and white gloves in the spirit of the pinup era. Finally, the groom can complete his look with polka dot bow-tie or tie and white feather for boutonnieres. By opting for the wedding videography services, you will be able to remember every single detail of your wedding. Once the special day passes, you can relive it with your spouse and your children.
Your wedding should be a reflection of your tastes and personalities, so don’t hesitate to break the conventions. Having a pinup wedding in winter will leave you with the feelings of uniqueness and authenticity.
