Psychedelic Wedding Inspiration

psychedelic wedding inspiration

I just love this inspirational shoot that Melissa Elise Event Design & Styling designed + styled. I’m always looking for new ways to help couples pull their styles + interests together and this one is just so beautiful! A bit about the shoot from Melissa, The inspiration for this shoot came from the hippie and biker cultures of the late 60s and early 70s, with a modern twist. We incorporated a ton of textiles and handmade elements- from the table scape, which was created by laying down a vibrant psychedelic floral print fabric with a handmade cut out panel overlay, and white fringe trim around the tables edge; to the cake display, which included a mix of patterned fabrics, white fur rugs, ripped strips of sheer fabric flowing in the wind, and lanterns handmade with bright fabrics and fringe trims (In other words, fabric, fabric, fabric!) 

Thanks to Erin Hearts Court for the gorgeous photos!

  16. Thank you so very much for the beautiful feature, Jen! It’s an honor:)

  17. This is such a great use of a fabulous ’70s dress! They don’t really get enough love these days, what with all the fondness for ’50s fit-n-flares and ’30s bias gowns, but seeing how beautiful this is gives me hope for the glorious return of the breezy ’70s.

  18. i LOVE it. this is the wedding of my dreams, with her flowy dress and getaway motorcycle and laid back reception decor. i love it. and also, the moonshine?! brilliant.

  19. Absolute awesomeness. This is so dreamy!

  20. Where do I begin? This is awesome. It’s beautiful. Creative. Just fabulous!

  21. I saw the florals and I knew it was Honey & Poppies! Great job Megan! Seriously, I always know when something is your work. :)

  22. love every bit of this, and the colors are so gorgeous

  23. LOVE this theme! LOVE the colors. My favorite parts are her gorgeous dress and that vibrant cake!!

  24. Yup. The couple has definitely caught the 60’s hippy feel. (I’m from that era and really ought to know.) The kind of modern-looking, NM biker groom isn’t as reminiscent, in my opinion, but his bride, wow! Absolutely breathtaking! Right out of the past. Thanks!

  25. I love the colors and the sweetness in this wedding. by the way her dress was fabulous. :)

  26. This shoot was as fun to work on as it looks. Thanks so much for the feature!
