If you’ve got your sights set on throwing a super cool hipster wedding then here are few tips and ideas to make it #ultimatehipster.
Ideally the groom will have a full beard or carefully styled mustache. The hipster wedding is as much about the groom as it is about the bride and there are loads of great male grooming products on the market. Bow ties are a must or an unusual patterned tie, rolled up sleeves, tweed jackets, close fitting trousers and tan loafers or Converse trainers – colour combinations as mixed up as possible.
For the bride, think hippy, vintage, festival…, long, lacey and bohemian. The brides’ hair should be lose and natural; the goal of the hipster bride is to look naturally beautiful and slightly undone, so go for garlands made of flowers with loose braids and waves to frame the face.
Wild flowers are the perfect choice for a hipster wedding or flowers that look hand-picked. Go for long uneven stems tied with ribbon or lace.
Stationery & Signage
Stationery and signage needs to have a hand-made or vintage look. Chalkboards, wood, hessian and brown card, coupled with mixed up font styles, ribbons and scrolls. Watercolour effects are also very much in fashion at the moment.
This should be natural and outdoorsy such as a barn or teepee or somewhere tranquil where guests can spill outside should the sun come out. Outdoor photography a must, with a backdrop of trees, woods or even a forest to set the mood –it’s a good idea to get a photographer who understands your theme; traditional family line-ups are not very hipster.
Fabric bunting, hand-made decorations and vintage accessories will compliment a minimal setting and as the sun goes down and the evening do begins, set the mood with single colour fairy lights and naked Edison bulbs.
For the cake, go naked with a roughly finished icing decorated with flowers and fruit, or why not have a stack of your favourite treats such as multi-coloured macaroons or even tiered cheeses.
The entertainment must be alternative in some way so go for a folk or mariachi band or anyone you know who is in a band to come and play. The foodand drink locally sourced where possible with a trendy, artisan feel.
Other hipster things you might want add: Umbrellas, wellies, owls, local wildlife prints, mustache motifs, vintage anything, bicycles, dream catchers, deckchairs, multi-coloured ribbon backdrops...
