I’ve been accused of being a hippie in my life and I’m not ashamed of it. I
was am a bit of a nerd who LOVES history. Growing up I was wild about the 60s. From the music to the style and of course all the political activism that burned across our country. I always thought that at some point I outgrew my obsession with the hippie era but it seems that in actuality the fixation just became a part of who I am. On multiple occasions I have been called a hippie and even if someone meant it as a snub I’ve always received it as a compliment.
This past weekend I went wedding dressing shopping for the first time. The associate who helped me said she wanted me to see a very unique veil that she had a feeling I would like. The floral lace headband was worn across the forehead and was as someone said a little “hippie-ish.” Now, I don’t know if I’ve settled on the veil but it got me thinking of how I can feature my love of the style on our big day…
1. Daisy Aisle Runner & Flower Power Backdrop: Daisy’s are such happy flowers. I could see them lining the edges of the aisle leading up to a simple and natural alter backdrop like the one above.
2. Floral Crown & Boho Inspired Dress: I will have a flower crown at my wedding. I just haven’t decided if it will be full of big luscious blooms or a small spray of flowers. I also love the unexpected dress above from Free People.
3. One Big Family Tablescape: I love this long and winding tablescape. I’m not sure what makes me think it’s hippyish but I think it would fit the evenings theme.
4. It’s all in the details: I am in love with the idea of ending the evening with a drive in a VW Bus. I will own one of these someday. And as for the party favors, is there a better way for your guests to keep the flower power going than taking home flower bombs?!?
