Fun Retro Wedding Ideas

If you are into the 50’s then you’ll probably love the retro theme for your wedding! From bouncy skirts and pin up hairstyles to colourful milkshakes and rock-n-roll songs; this era was all about being creative! Going for this wedding theme is the perfect way to make your wedding stand out and be remembered. This theme will also result in some amazing wedding photography.

Mid length wedding dresses with a poofy skirt are the way to go! This length and silhouette is flattering on everyone, which is a major plus. Plus, you can show off those cute shoes with this style.

For the groom, a double-breasted jacket is a great fit. This style of jacket is not so common in weddings but if you want to stick to the whole retro theme then this is what the groom should be wearing. Add some horn-rimmed glasses or a fedora hat to really get into character. If the groom doesn’t want to wear all the accessories, just keep them for wedding photography only.

A retro food truck is a must-have for any wedding inspired by the 1950’s. You can even opt for a bar truck and have them serve some fun and colourful drinks. Make sure to ask your wedding photographer to capture lots of pictures near it!

Red and blue are signatures colours for a retro theme, so make sure to add plenty of it to your wedding décor.

A retro wedding also takes inspiration from Coke, which means your party is incomplete without it! You can even use some empty coke bottles as vases for flowers.

Your wedding invitations should be aligned with the theme as that is the first thing your guests will be seeing.

Messy hair wasn’t a trend back in the 50’s, so go for some curls or a pin up hairstyle on your wedding day.
