Are you a bride-to-be with a love for nostalgia and a love for all things groovy? If so, why not take a trip down memory lane and transport yourself to the iconic era of the 1970s for your big day? In this blog, we'll guide you through the steps to become the perfect 70s bride, with a particular focus on creating a flower-filled celebration that captures the groovy essence of the era.

Embrace the 70s Vibe

The 1970s were a time of free-spirited expression, vibrant colors, and carefree living. To embody the spirit of this era, start by choosing a wedding dress that reflects the bohemian chic style. Think flowy fabrics, lace details, and perhaps even a touch of fringe. Channel your inner flower child and opt for a gown that exudes the relaxed and laid-back vibes synonymous with the 70s.

Let the Disco Balls Shine

Now, let's add a touch of disco magic to your celebration. Consider incorporating disco balls into your decor. Hang them from the ceiling, use them as table centerpieces, or scatter them across the venue. The reflective surfaces of disco balls will capture and refract light, creating a dazzling, dance floor-ready atmosphere that pays homage to the disco fever of the 70s.

Go Retro with Your Flower Choices

Flowers play a crucial role in setting the mood for any wedding, and for a 70s-inspired celebration, you'll want to choose blooms that reflect the era's aesthetic. Think bold and vibrant colors like vibrant oranges, rich yellows, and earthy greens. Sunflowers, dahlias, and marigolds are excellent choices to capture the essence of the 70s. Consider creating flower crowns for you and your bridesmaids to truly embrace the boho-chic look.

DIY Floral Arrangements

For the full 70s experience, consider incorporating DIY floral arrangements into your wedding preparations. Get your bridal party involved in a fun and creative flower arranging session. With the help of our fresh blooms, you can create centerpieces, bouquets, and even flower-adorned arches that will transport you and your guests back in time.

Disco-Inspired Photo Booth

Capture the joy and laughter of your guests with a disco-inspired photo booth. Provide props like funky hats, oversized sunglasses, and disco ball accessories. Encourage your friends and family to strike their best 70s poses, creating timeless and entertaining memories that will last a lifetime.

Share the Love

As you embark on this journey back in time, don't forget to involve your guests in the celebration. Encourage them to embrace the 70s theme by suggesting attire ideas, or even host a costume contest for the best retro outfit. The more everyone gets into the spirit, the more memorable and immersive your groovy wedding will be.

Becoming the perfect 70s bride is not just about the aesthetics; it's about creating an experience that transports you and your guests to a time of love, peace, and groovy vibes. From your flower choices to the decor details and the soundtrack of your love story, every element contributes to a celebration that is uniquely yours. So, let your love shine through every disco ball, and may your journey into wedded bliss be as timeless as the era that inspired it. Groovy on, lovebirds!
