So you want to get married on Valentine’s Day, but it has to be as cheesy as possible. We hear you! It’s such a romantic and meaningful day; anything that is a perfect opportunity to exchange vows. However, conversation hearts and Cupid’s arrow are not invited to the celebration! Today’s editorial plays like a radical vinyl from the 70s and offers plenty of ideas for a completely kitschy wedding day.
Lauren from Playful Soul Photography shares the rocking details behind this inspiration: This is a perfect blend of femininity and masculinity: Valentine’s Day meets rock’n’roll. We wanted to celebrate love + highlight Valentine’s Day, but with a rock edge. It’s the portrayal of the girl and bad boy that perfectly captures the romantic vacation of our youth – now with a sophisticated, modern twist. The design vision was derived from art weddings, Gothic influences and a playful touch.
With the planning aid from Tangerine Events, Venue by 3 Petals is the ideal canvas for creating a bold, non-kitschy wedding scene for Valentine’s Day! Ready to rock?
Pink rock and roll vibes with this mixed media wedding invitation suite from Krystal Wedding Invitations.
Custom wedding backgrounds are about as radical as decor. This huge vinyl created by The Artsy Lefty is absolutely not cheesy and ideal for a rock and roll wedding for Valentine’s Day
Rock and roll kind of love
Peonies, carnations, garden roses and ranunculus form this bridal bouquet. The addition of anthurium and ribbon orchids gives it a modern, neotropical mix of temperate and tropical flowers!
Heavy on the flowers! Sunrise Blooms brings that vision to life and keeps things super sustainable. The installation of the ceremony was made foam-free, using fall pistachio branches, lightly sprayed baby breath, carnations and black magic roses. We love this sustainable approach to wedding flowers!
What really encompasses the edgy yet romantic atmosphere is the bride’s bustier and sweetheart neckline (hello, jump!). Simply beautiful, sparkling lace from her Sofia Bella Bridal dress. Our groom ROCK here in a maroon suit by The Black Tux.
Completely not kitschy V-Day details!
