80’s pop themed beach wedding: Melissa + Ryan
Is it really possible that this is the first time we’ve seen disco balls used as centerpiece floral vessels? We know. Sounds amazing, right? It is. So is their three-tiered cake completely covered in colored sprinkles! We’re super smitten over all the new wedding decorating ideas in this colorful and fun wedding from Ariane Moshayedi Photography and Carly Rae Weddings, and have a feeling you’re going to feel the same.
Melissa started her wedding planning by first knowing they had to book an 80s band (Neon Nation). Next, she wanted her ladies dressed in sparkle, so sequin dresses were a must. Then these multi-glitter Kate Spade pumps sprung into action… and the rest, well it shouldn’t have come to a surprise that disco balls made their way into their decor.
Every gal should have a spritz of this pretty perfume before they go down the aisle.
Such a fun idea to use disco balls to hold flower arrangements. Nice one, Primary Petals!
Disco balls as servingware? Yes!
Advice from the Bride: Choose what one thing is most important to you and run with it. Ryan and I knew that we are nothing without our friends and family, and that is why it was our main priority that our guests have an amazing time. We threw a huge party because we knew that if our guests were having a great time, we would too. It’s only one day, and it goes by so fast, make it memorable and don’t take yourself too seriously! For example, if you fall in love with a colorful necklace that someone says “isn’t bridal,” buy it anyway. You cannot and will not please everyone, but if you and your groom can enjoy the day and get in a few laughs, it should be considered a huge success.
How can you not be in a good mood after this fun wedding? So happy we could share Melissa + Ryan’s special day. Congrats you two!
