It’s great to stand out from the crowd so today I’m bringing you a beautiful alternative wedding style. Every bride is unique and stunning in her own way, so why no reflect that in your big day. Take something that really showcases your personality as a couple and inject into your wedding to make a day that is truly about the two of you.
Today’s wedding mood board features a pretty tattoo theme that runs from the bride herself to the stationery, the cake and beyond.
Finding the right tattoo design was the first step to creating today’s mood board. I wanted to find a style that was traditional in terms of tattoo design, whilst still remaining romantic. There were lots of bright and bold examples but I fell in love with this whimsical take on the traditional birds and hearts tattoo. I love the vintage feel in both the design and the colours, so this formed the basis of today’s colour scheme. Pantone colours: Tender Peach (12-0912 TCX), Pink Dogwood (12-1706 TCX), Vintage Indigo (19-3929 TCX) and Blue Indigo (19-3928 TCX).
From this, a beautiful beautiful of purple and blue blooms is the perfect choice. The pink roses in this bouquet keep the traditional, vintage element. The bouquet is equally stunning offset against these ombre purple bridesmaids dresses.
The vintage feel continues with a fete style reception space and the pale blue retro wedding car! Village halls are an underestimated gem when it comes to wedding receptions. They are usually incredibly good value for money, have a sense of community, and there’s normally free reign to create any style that you want. The perfect blank canvas!
When choosing a wedding theme, you can make it as subtle or as bold as you like. For this look, the tattoo theme runs from the initial stationery to the wedding cake, but you can even run it beyond your wedding to the wedding favors your guests take home! Fun a bit of fun, I’ve featured this Tattoo station, where guests can choose a temporary tattoo as a (short term) momentum of your day. If you’re really brave and your guests are willing, you could even push the boat out with a live tattoo artist – or have your wedding ring fingers tattooed after the service! The possibilities are endless…
How are you planning to inject personality into your big day? I’d love to hear from you!
