Rock and roll is back, baby! Before the days of couples like Kravis (congrats to the newlyweds!), rock couples did things a little bit differently. Let’s throw it back to 1977 when Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ album was just released, the first Star Wars movie came out in theaters, and The Eagles released ‘Hotel California’. Ah, what a time.
RD Events imagined a modern take on all the retro feels Stevie Nicks has been serving us for decades. We’re talking round sunnies, brown and orange color schemes, and a level of cool few people can unlock. By Bridget Photography absolutely nailed this whole shoot, including the photo inspired by the Rumours album cover! And it wouldn’t be the 70s without a little flower power, right? Alchemy Blooms Floral Design created the perfect arrangements to complement this fun and creative shoot. So in honor of Stevie Nicks’ birthday, let’s get into this epic inspo and how you can incorporate it into your own wedding!
70s Cool Girl
Can you think of a more quintessentially retro invitation suite? Handmade Darling absolutely nailed these invites!
The ‘cool girl’ aesthetic is on everyone’s mind right now – and for good reason. This powerful look is truly what you make of it! Unlike other trends, the longevity of this look is based largely on the authenticity person who wears it. If you’re wearing something that truly matches your vibe – that’s a classic.
Let’s. Talk. About. The. Dress. It’s the Willow gown from For Love and Lemons! This masterpiece has an undeniably sexy silhouette (hello, chic silk!) along with the most romantic chiffon sleeves. This vintage-inspired wedding dress is such a winner!
You can’t get the perfect shot without the perfect venue! The Emerson in Syracuse, NY is a beauty & wellness center with the perfect minimalist vibes to help bring your event’s vision to life.
White roses in a tambourine, because why not? This bouquet was inspired by the Bella Donna album cover!
Rock and Roll
Tattoos, moody tones, and fashionable choices. What more could a wedding need?
What are your top 5 fave Fleetwood Mac songs? ‘Everywhere’ definitely makes our list! This song was the inspiration for this creatively (and seriously stunning) seating chart. The customization options are endless!
Having a more intimate wedding with fewer guests? We’re loving this setup on the walls of the venue in place of a standalone wall!
It wouldn’t be the 70s (or even 2022) without some disco balls! We can’t get enough of how beautifully they stand out against this black cake by LoveBean.
Let’s talk about this place setting! The colors of the 70s get a modern makeover with chic matte plates, colored hurricanes, and these adorable custom mixtapes.
Nothing screams romance more than white flowing fabric and an abundance of lit candles.
You Make Loving Fun
Veils are in! If you’re like Kourtney Kardashian, you’re all about the short wedding dress and long veil combo. In this case, we’re going for full drama with length all over!
Some say black for your wedding day is bad luck – we couldn’t disagree more. How could anything this chic be anything but good luck?!
Another ‘it girl’ staple? Bridal sunglasses. Trust us.
No rock and roll wedding is complete without an epic exit! If you really wanna take it up a notch, a motorcycle is the way to go. Your parents may be (slightly) appalled, but you’ll be having too much fun to care.
Don’t be afraid to move those candles around! Sometimes, a moment to cuddle up with your new spouse by the candlelight is exactly what you need to help soak it all in.
Now you’re ready to plan the ultimate Stevie Nicks-inspired wedding! Love the look, but don’t think this is the vibe for you? No problem! This wabi-sabi wedding or Parisian elopement might be more up your alley. Either way, enjoy the planning process!
