Las Vegas isn't really known for subtle and intimate, but this pair made it happen, complete with a pin-up-inspired backdrop at a 1950s-styled Las Vegas wedding chapel. Add a twirly dress and crinoline, a ceremony high-five, and some "zombie faces," and this was a retro-fab party. Add on the big Toronto reception a month later, and the celebration was complete. Oh, and wait until you see the surprise ring from the bride!
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of colored crinoline posts.
This wedding has paper flowers, rainbow cupcakes, a silver dress by Miss Brache's, a taco truck reception, and a super crafty way to make seating a cinch. And when the bride sang Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You," all fell under her spell.
This wedding has glittery shoes, an evening sunset ceremony, rainbow cake, colorful crinoline, and some awesome lessons learned the second time around. Keep an eye out for the groom's "breast" friend, too.
Thinking of adding something fun, colorful, and unexpected to your wedding outfit? Then you're gonna wanna think about our sponsor ReSashay, and they're awesome selection of petticoats. ReSashay has made petticoat purchasing perfectly painless (say that three times fast) with their two ways to shop…
These two love them some old timey fun and brought it ALL to their wedding in the bride's hometown of Detroit. She also totally schooled her Chicago pals in all things awesome in Detroit: the Henry Ford museum complex, awesome food (including Coney dogs!), and goodie bags filled with local snacks and beers. Get on your penny-farthing and come take a peek!
If you're a fan of the '90s television show Twin Peaks, this wedding will totally get you jonesing to marathon it! The couple had ceremony readings from the show, a "Miss Twin Peaks" photo booth backdrop, Double R Diner coffee cups, and a replica of Dale Cooper's tape recorder. You'll also flip for the bride's red crinoline and gorgeous cocktail hat!
Pink and red with polka dots and pinwheels all over gives this Denver wedding a bit of a retro and a lot of ADORABLE. Add in some LEGO touches, a successful venue swap (due to a major flood!), and loads of DIY, and you'll be all in. Oh, and you'll never guess how the bride used Lady Gaga to surprise her dad!
Clapperboards, film rolls, and superheroes, oh my! It must be a movie-themed wedding… this time in Brazil! The couple planned to head off to London the day after the wedding, so it was a whole lot of packing and planning to make this all come together in time. And we think you'll love the adorable moments during the ceremony. Here's a hint: the groom may have futzed up rock-paper-scissors!
Trish and Al took the Wayback Machine back to childhood for a wild day playing in the snow, posing with their wedding crew, and of course, getting married! Plus, who can resist a bride in glittery Converse, leg warmers, a cape, hot pink crinoline, and a star bouquet? The reception looked out of control with a space theme including robots, ray guns, astronauts and superheroes (and Doctor Who!) photo booth, and their hilarious moon landing cake. Like their favors said: "it was a blast!"
This pair of rockabillies wanted to go all-out with retro style: record place settings, cake centerpieces with tattoo designs, pin-up and greaser stations (for timely coifs!), and a killer band. You have to see what the groom did at the reception to surprise the bride. Let's just say it involves Elvis. Oh, and I think the groom's "cake" will appeal to some of you.
