Friends, you NEED these colorful retro wedding ideas in your life! Regardless of whether you’re into retro vibes, the color palettes, the details, and the design of this inspiration created by Ashton Events and Treasury Rentals are giving us LIFE over here! And with images captured by Hunter Ryan Photo, well, there is A LOT of gorgeousness to be inspired by.
This color palette is like none other we’ve seen, filled with retro tones of dusty rose, muted coral, and caramel, accented by pops of slate blue, and muted emerald green. An incorporation of natural wood tones, textures, and brass details rounded out the retro chic style perfectly.
Our favorite aspect of this design is the use of shapes. It all starts with the ceremony, created from a modern painted backdrop featuring arch and half arch shapes layered on top of each other. The simple, geometric look in the 70s-inspired color palette popped against the white walls, and hanging florals added just the right amount of elegance. We see the use of shapes again in the beautiful reception table linen from Nuage, and then again in a stunning gold gilded cake design. We’re always so enthralled by the way that Ashton Events designs her weddings, and this inspiration is a perfect example of her attention to detail and design.
Oh, and then there’s the stunning, sleek 70s-inspired wedding dress from By Watters, complete with bell sleeves and a low back. It is EVERYTHING! And now, enough of our gushing about this retro wedding design- it’s time that you see it for yourself!
From Laura of Ashton Events:
“We wanted to bring as many tones and textures to the floral design as possible. The 70s inspiration of the shoot kept us in a very muted, color-rich palette. The layers and dimensions of the blooms brought a pop of personality to the flat & matte look of the design. We opted out of using greenery to keep the the colors as vivid as possible.
When it came to the linens- Nuage just released this brand new line of linens! We immediately fell in love with the reception table linen. It has the most gorgeous layers of color and bohemian design. The jade and peach combination was perfect! We loved the pop of color from the plum terra napkins. It was the perfect final touch.”
