Details for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
Looking for a fun and unique wedding day theme? The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme, also known as red retro, is all about the love in your eyes. Grooms even have fun with the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme when their eyewear matches the bride’s.
The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding is fun and laid-back as well. Brides may opt for a more casual dress for the nuptials, the groom also has a wide range of outfit options for the day. Love is in the air, and so is red, which is the most chosen colour for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding. In fact, bridesmaids may be decked out in red from head to toe – including their shoes!
Add a splash of turquoise to this fun theme, and you have a truly colourful wedding style that is wholly unique.
Colour Palette for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
Red and shades of red are the most popular colours chosen for the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding. However, many brides are adding turquoise to these reds for a bright, eye-catching contrast. These two colours can be paired together in a number of ways.
For the ceremony, red should be the dominating colour with white and subtle hints of turquoise. A bouquet of red roses or peonies will match the theme without taking away from the bride’s beauty.
At the reception, utilise red and turquoise tulle to marry the two colours. Turquoise vintage cola bottles (find some in red as well) may add to the table decor. Centrepieces should feature both colours, and brides may even use turquoise in the linens.
What to Look for in a Venue for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
The Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding venue offers brides the ability to enjoy the unique wedding theme. It can be indoors or in an outdoor setting, or even in a remote destination.
For indoor venues, because the bride is using bright and bold colours, it is a good idea to make sure the interior decor is more neutral. Certain wall colours or designs could take away from the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding, so be sure the venue itself doesn’t detract from the theme decor.
An outdoor venue is perfect for the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme; in fact, the wedding party and guests will welcome the ability to block the sunshine while the couple says, “I do!”
When discussing the rental of the venue, it’s always important to find out if there are extras included in the rental price. Many venues offer the use of tables and chairs as well as linens, and this can help boost your budget since you’ll no longer need to rent these items.
Food for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
Brides who really want to emphasise the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme may want to utilise a mini-theme for the reception. Consider a retro diner-type menu for the reception cuisine.
Picture it – sandwiches or burgers served in a red basket, Coca Cola served in glass bottles, mini-cherry pies for dessert. The caterer may set up a malt or milkshake station as well.
Some brides may opt for other popular diner food; many actually choose chicken tenders and fries as their meal. However, a great twist would be to offer a chicken and waffles station where guests can help themselves.
Favours & Gifts for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
The most important thing to remember regarding favours is to choose something unique and memorable. In fact, some people are forgoing favours and offering welcome bags instead. These bags are typically personalised.
For the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding, include heart-shaped cookies, a glass-bottled Coca Cola, and perhaps a personalised pair of Heart Shaped Sunglasses for the big day! One bride offered a mini-gumball machine as a wedding favour in keeping with the diner food theme.
Wedding Invitations for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
Brides choosing the red and turquoise colour palette will love creating one-of-a-kind invitations that match the theme of the wedding. Those who wish for a more traditional wedding invitation may utilise a vintage red and turquoise frame pattern on the invitation, or they may want to incorporate red flowers on a turquoise background.
However, the whimsical Heart Shaped Sunglasses wedding theme calls for wedding invitations that are definitely on the non-traditional side! Some choose invitations in a heart shape or select graphics that use heart shaped sunglasses to announce the nuptials. Brides who want a unique invitation but don’t want to buck tradition too much, consider adding a pair of heart shaped sunglasses as a part of the invitation.
Ceremony Decor for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
Since the bride, groom, and attendants will all be wearing heart shaped sunglasses for the ceremony, decor shouldn’t focus so much on the sunglasses but on the red retro colour palette.
Red and turquoise seem as if they would never work together, but they represent beautiful contrasts. Brides may have their bridesmaids wear turquoise dresses and carry a red bouquet. Be sure to use red boldly as a part of the ceremonial decor. Red floral arrangements tied with turquoise ribbon are perfect for the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding ceremonial decor. Drape tulle with the slightest hint of turquoise over the ceremonial arch.
Reception Decor for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
The reception is the place where brides can really have fun with Heart Shaped Sunglasses inspired decor.
Choose turquoise or aqua-coloured tablecloths. Use red napkins, but fold them and present them in the champagne glasses on the table. The dinner menu on a white card and red background will really pop the colour palette.
Brides may choose huge bouquets of red roses in a tall, turquoise coloured vase which serves as the centrepiece for the tables. Conversely, brides can decide on smaller bouquets of roses sitting in clear vases or mason jars with a turquoise ribbon tied neatly around the glass. The bride’s table is covered with an aqua-coloured cloth, and red candles sitting on tall white candlesticks adorn the area.
Outdoor Wedding Ideas for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
The outdoor wedding setting is perfect for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding ceremony! Couples can provide heart shaped sunglasses for guests as they enter the ceremonial area, and, the guests can truly join in the fun of the ceremonial theme.
The red and turquoise colour palette of the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme is perfect in an outdoor setting, and it seems to fit better in an outdoor venue than in one indoors. In fact, one of the perfect outdoor venues for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding is near water. Whether it’s a lake or the beach, the red and turquoise colours fit well by the shore.
Wedding Cake Ideas for a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding
Because the Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme is unique and whimsical, brides may decide to choose a whimsical wedding cake design as well. Many brides hosting a Heart Shaped Sunglasses Wedding theme often choose a wedding cake that is decorated in both turquoise and red. One bride chose a cake with four tiers, flowers in red, blue, and white, and red fondant in the shape of a ribbon tied around certain tiers of the cake.
Another great cake idea isn’t a cake at all; it’s actually cupcakes. This is perfect if you don’t plan for too many guests. Using a cupcake tower, arrange the cupcakes – some red, some turquoise, some white – for guests to grab at the reception.
