The 60s Just Got a Modern Makeover That’s Perfect for Your Wedding

Modern 60s inspired styled shoot

The 60s were a legendary decade! Between the amazing hairstyles, the birth of disco, and the free love movement, it’s no wonder the 60s are still relevant today. This wedding inspiration takes it up a notch with abundant florals and bold color – including a cameo by Very Peri, Pantone’s Color of the Year!

Mack & Main Events took this inspiration from the 60s and supercharged it into something you can take into 2022 (and love forever)! Museum Lab was the ideal venue to bring this concept to life with its spaciousness and light-pouring windows. Florals by May Chester Designs were the main eye-catcher and a huge part of what makes us feel SO inspired by this styled shoot! Finally, photographer Eva Lin brought the magic to life on camera. Ready to get inspired yourself? Let’s go!

A unique wedding calls for unique gemstones to go with it. This purple stoned engagement ring by Henne Jewelers is the key to leaning into a fun, vintage vibe. Oh, and a diamond band for the groom sure doesn’t hurt, either!

How AMAZING is this floral ceremony arch and aisle combo?! This color palette is everything we love about the 60s. Peaches and pinks were hugely popular in that era, so it’s only right that it shines here as well! Very Peri as the primary color is the exact touch needed to bring this style into your modern-day wedding. 

Purple and orange wedding ceremony flowers

A romantic wedding gown is guaranteed to bring a softened, sweet look to your wedding day. Bride Kiara still gave a nod to the 60s in her wedding day style with hair inspired by icon Brigitte Bardot.
