A 1980s themed wedding is sort of the ultimate in wedding themes. I mean, who hasn’t been to an ’80s’ party before? There is so much to love (and miss) about the 80s. If you’re going to be a retro 80s bride, check out these fabulous bouquets from Floricultcha. They don’t come more retro than these:
Another sort of 1980s, but it’s ‘oh so trendy right now’ trend is the photo booth. I have something of an issue with the photo booth because while I love it, I see mustaches on otherwise gorgeous brides all the time. I’m not a fan of the mustache photo booth prop – so I’ve found some pretty awesome alternatives for you.
Avoid the ‘stash at all costs. Why not try a cute bow tie? You still get to gender bend, and in 30 years from now it won’t remind you of your upper lip hair issues, which by then will be an actual issue.
Have pre-written phrases, words, and sentences and allow guests to come up with their own hilarious messages for you!
It’s a wedding – giant rings would be cute!
Ties = cute and much better than mustaches…
Glam it up Venetian carnival style with glittering masks.
Turn your photo booth images into a guest book by having guests write messages for you!
For an awesome and unique backdrop create a giant paint sample strip. Incorporate your wedding palette to tie it all together.
