Items to Incorporate
To create a wedding design inspired by the 70’s is simple. Adding a few disco ball decorations and fringe elements can take a modern wedding and give it a fun twist. Have your florist add the disco balls into your bouquet and centerpieces. Create a no-sew fringe table runner and napkin ties.
Things to Consider
This 70’s inspired wedding can be done in any season. For an outdoor wedding, focus on adding more feminine, soft details. For an indoor wedding, use the glamorous style of the 70’s as your inspiration.
Take It Up a Notch
Some of the top love songs from the 70’s are still familiar to us today. Instead of numbers, label the tables with titles from some of the 70’s love songs. Add the lyrics to the seating cards and have your guests figure out which song title matches. Have your guests say farewell by throwing confetti, but add in some gold peace signs in the mix. Not only will they be a unique touch but a nice well-wish. Instead of serving up wedding cake, opt for healthier froyo. Throw in a mood ring to your bridesmaid’s gifts or treat them to the latest mani craze – mood polish.
