This Creative Team Experimented With a “Trendy” Wedding Aesthetic And We’re ALL For It!

Checkerboard and Squiggles Inspiration Shoot

What if you set the connotation of the word “trendy” aside and used the trends to your advantage? That’s exactly what this creative team did when experimenting with this editorial! This is a shoot honoring and leaning into the trendy!!

Sonnet Weddings teamed with Kindly Floral to create a truly memorable day knowing with the trendy vision in mind it would be easy to source inspiration, find decor to fit the theme, and is an easily describable aesthetic design for vendors. That sounds like a triple win!!!

Armed with pastel squiggles and checkerboard as the starting point, the dream team called this a gen-z’s idea of what gen-x thought the 60s were like: kind of a groovy Bratz doll vibe. How FUN!! There are a ton of ideas to steal: hello, flower crowns for plates! Tie-dye tablecloth! Painted faux anthuriums! And lots of very DIY-able projects (handmade wiggly cake stand, handmade arch, and more!). The talented Allie Farmer was on hand to capture it all. Let’s take a look!

At the last minute, Ellen from Kindly Floral found out that the wholesaler couldn’t get anthuriums in that week. They were very set on having checkerboard anthuriums and had gotten some faux anthuriums in advance to practice painting on and THANK GOODNESS they did because they ended up using those! Anthuriums are so wild looking and with the paint on them they figured it wouldn’t be too noticeable that they were fake.

From the florist: Quick tip, if you try to do these as a DIY and paint a pattern, make sure your pattern repeat doesn’t intersect with the spadix (yeah, we looked up the parts of an anthurium and that’s what the middle thingy is called). It’s really hard to paint around it!
