Wedding Ideas with a Retro 70’s Aesthetic
Holly Loves Paper totally embraced retro 70’s aesthetics for the paper goods, signage, and invitations for this suite! The patterned invitations feel like the best interpretation of 1970’s patterns – a little funky and a lot fun! The earth tone color palette for the stationery is both of the era and of the moment, thanks to a combination of burnt orange, mustard yellow, and taupe.
How gorgeous is this boho bridal dress! The Bridal Boutique in Calgary knew that Rue De Seine bridal’s retro 70’s aesthetic is the perfect choice for an indie bride – the lace pattern had that perfect look to bring the grooviest era to life, and the bell sleeves create stunning movement!
This gorgeous geometric ceremony backdrop made an amazing statement against the exposed brick walls of Venue 308! Keeping the arch structure open and airy allowed Bloom Screens to add gorgeous flower installations in rich jewel tones, with toffee roses and blooms in deep burgundy and scarlet red. Vintage pendant lamps from Coven Creative bring in a taste of the retro 70’s aesthetic while adding a warm glow for amazing photos, and the antique bohemian rug from The Orange Trunk brought in pattern and texture!
Speaking of patterns, this amazing Wedding Timeline sign fully embraced the retro 70’s aesthetic with stylistic swatch lettering and graphic design that looks straight out of the grooviest era!
The intimate Sweetheart Table created a cozy reception dining space, with luxurious velvet tablecloths in tangerine orange to add a luxurious feeling to the rustic wood table and chairs for two. The flower arch backdrop made a stunning focal point throughout the wedding day festivities!
Charcoal gray pottery plates, copper flatware, and more of the fun retro 70’s paper goods brought this moody and magical place setting to life!
Cheers to micro weddings! These gorgeous set ups prove that you can still make an incredible impact with a small guest count.
Can’t you pictured this 70’s rainbow cake on a wall hanging? Modern Bake created an edible work of art with a four-tiered textured white wedding cake with retro disco lines in warm earth tones to create a gorgeous dessert display. The deep fall colors of the flowers made a perfect accent to the artistic wedding cake!
Thinking of mismatching bridesmaid dresses? These lovelies proved the key to even a small bridal party in individual dresses is nailing the color scheme! Silk dresses in copper and dusty mauve work beautifully together despite the unique silhouettes.
The bride and bridesmaids all carried flower hoops as a bouquet alternative! These fun floral statements can easily be repurposed as decor pieces – hung on the backs of chairs or on the cake display to use throughout the day!
