Celebrating the anniversary of Ziggy Stardust with this glam rock David Bowie-inspired wedding inspiration

David Bowie's iconic concept album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” was released 47(!) year ago on June 16, 1972, so it was more than fitting to showcase this amazing glam rock wedding inspiration right around the anniversary. The bride, groom, and their best crew were all in a band so they rocked their amazing outfits with metallics, velvet, fringe, tassels, faux fur, and tinsel.

Don't miss the epic florals, star-shaped EVERYTHING, velvet suits, the bride's jumpsuit, and the cake that any Bowie fan would love…

Minted now has new foil colors like ice blue, bronze, and black and are seriously spectacular for wedding invites and save the dates.

Let's do some shopping for some sparkly, shiny, and now extra colorful foil wedding invitations and save the dates from one of our faves, Minted

Breweries, architecture, & canoodling at this engagement homage to Kansas City

Leslie and Cassidy both attended Rockhurst University in Kansas City but didn't meet until years into their programs while both attending a mission trip in the Caribbean. They both love breweries and Kansas City, so even though they now live in St. Louis, they wanted to have their engagement session in the city close to their hearts. They canoodled and nuzzled their way through the beautiful Kauffman Center in Kansas City and we can't get enough…

I proposed to my boyfriend using the most romantic moment in Star Wars

I proposed to my fiance Simen on our anniversary, so I thought I'd share the story of how I did it with the most romantic part of Star Wars. I went on Etsy and I found a Star Wars fidget spinner ring. He likes Star Wars (though I had never watched any of it), and he fidgets a lot, so I thought it was pretty good. I asked my friend Benedikt JOKINGLY if there was a romantic moment in Star Wars.

He showed me one particular scene you may recognize…

What's new in alternative wedding bouquets? 34 ideas that go beyond the flower

Huge bouquets have been a total trend this year — full of flowers, greenery, and other flora that crops up in various forms each season.

We're not strangers to non-floral bouquets, but I wanted to expand my search into a few newer territories: fruits, candy, pearls, beads, wheat, paper, balloons, fans, wooden flowers, felt, and more.
