1950’s wedding decor inspiration

Categories   Wedding Inspiration

If Barbie were friends with Kate Spade back in the day, and married Ken at The Parker in Palm Springs, hired Bows and Arrows for their florals, and Ben Q Photography to capture all the lovely details, the result would undoubtedly be this shoot you’re about to see. Lots of pink, tasty cakes, glitter accents, bright pops of color, polka dots and stripes make this the perfect combo of a little retro and a little glam.

We don’t see too many bridemaids wearing corsages anymore, but wouldn’t that be cute? A blooming peonie with hanging sequin to wrap around their wrists?

Hope we’re not the only ones that noticed the dessert on the menu: Strawberry milkshake with chocolate sprinkles! Perhaps a milkshake bar? That’s a fun idea for a retro 50s inspired wedding.

Glitter + bold colors gets us every time. Thank you to all the creative minds behind this shoot! We’re feeling spunky and ready for a milkshake after this shoot!
