Retro Rockabilly Wedding Theme

Alternative Wedding Theme


Personally I'm not a lover of elegant, soft pastel flowers and frills, nor do I have the figure for a sexy long fitted number when it comes to wedding dresses but I love a Rockabilly look.

Rockabilly is such a fun idea with lots of bright colors red, blues, black and white being the main colors with polka dot spots, roses and love hearts.

What's not to like about these dresses in retro 1950's style, they're cute, colorful, pretty and a lot less expensive than the traditional wedding dress.

Maybe you would prefer to wear white, that's fine you can get white lace and even polka dot lace in the same tea dress length styles, add extra touches like this lovely bridal veil with red rose buds and a pair of red high heels and it will look fabulous. Dress the bridesmaids in colorful polka dot dresses and big net petticoats to finish off the look.


Carry the theme throughout the day with lots of tattoo style swallows, red love hearts, roses, polka dot decor and 1950's music. Sounds of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and the likes will soon get guests tapping their feet and bopping on the dance floor. Why not get yourselves a few lessons in Rock'n Roll dancing and make the first dance one that everyone will remember.

Saving Costs on Wedding Stationery Extras

The Drinks Are On Us!

The drinks are on us; sounds like a bad idea to me because it could end up costing you a fortune and even if money is no object it could get a bit messy with your guests not being able to resist having one too many. 

Do you really need to pay for all their drinks? 

No it isn't necessary but if it's something you want to do why not make a contribution by giving them a ticket to exchange at the bar. There are some cool cards you can buy and personalize with your names for an extra special touch. Here's one which is popular, cute but simple and effective and it can be either handed out or left on the tables along with favors

Don't Buy Me A Wedding Gift

Many couples these days have been living together for some time before getting married and already have pots, pans, towels, ornaments photo frames and the like. With the expense of the wedding they would probably appreciate money to spend on the honeymoon; but how can you say it without sounding ungrateful or greedy.  Once again you can get personalized cards just for that purpose.

However if you're not going on honeymoon but would prefer money or vouchers as opposed to a wedding gift you could use something like this

Perhaps your a couple who would love lots of wedding gifts but you feel a bit cheeky sending out a wedding gift list telling people what you want. Why not set up an online wedding page where you can get guests to message you with their RSVP. That way you can put a list of wedding gifts you would prefer there which they will see when replying, giving them a subtle hint.

Get Up And Dance!

Having a disc DJ in the evening on your wedding day; make sure people get up and dance it can make the night much more enjoyable for everyone. One step to getting people up dancing is playing music they enjoy and feel comfortable dancing to. Why not ask them to give you their favorite dance tunes on your web site before the event so that you can pass them on to the DJ. Alternatively get some song request cards to leave on the table on the evening

Thailand Destination Wedding Planning Tips

Looking for somewhere different to get married, somewhere with fabulous beaches, tropical climate and palm trees. You might be thinking of a destination wedding in Cyprus, the Greek Islands or Italy but if you're looking for something a bit more adventurous with lots of culture, take a look at Thailand

Thailand is such a wonderful destination with luxurious temples around every corner, sun soaked beaches, lively cities and interesting small villages. It's a place where memories are made that will last a lifetime.

There are several resorts where weddings can be arranged with western style weddings ceremonies exchanging vows and rings in luxury hotel settings or on the beach. Alternatively you can go for a Buddhist Temple wedding experience involving chanting monks, blessings and candle lighting.

These are just a few of the Thai resorts where hotels offer wedding packages 

  • Khao Lak
  • Koh Phangam
  • Koh Phi Phi
  • Koh Samui
  • Krabi
  • Phuket

It's advisable to get a reputable company to handle the arrangements for you as not only is the language very different, the writing is very different also. For example the word wedding in Thai looks like this งานแต่งงาน , so it could get confusing

When the wedding is over and all your paperwork is in order you can if you wish take off for a romantic honeymoon for just the two of you on one of the small Thai Islands. I can personally recommend Koh Kood Island where I spent a few days this year, but definitely not for people looking for nightlife, it's very low key and ideal for just relaxing in the sunshine on one of the glorious beaches. ­

But if your not wanting to relax there are Thai islands with lots going on and Bangkok is oozing with magnificent temples or you can hop and off the local ferries visiting different villages with their colorful local markets.

Thailand is known as the land of a thousand smiles and this shot taken in the local market certainly depicts this.

If you're looking for a wedding with a difference and a holiday of a lifetime  Thailand will definitely fit the bill.

Shall We Do It On The Beach! Destination Weddings

Santorini Greek Island Weddings Destination Set
Getting married abroad has become very popular largely due to the sunny climates which are very appealing when compared to the unpredictable weather here in the UK. A rainy day in Scunthorpe or a beach wedding in Cyprus; it's a no no-brainer really. No offence to anyone in Scunthorpe it's just the first name that came into my head.

Perhaps you're thinking of getting married abroad? it's such a big decision which will affect one of the most important days of your life. So before getting carried away with magazine pictures of beautiful brides and grooms running along exotic sandy beaches; do some research.

Facebook has a number of friendly groups, just search wedding groups, destination weddings, brides or similar and you will soon find them. Don't be afraid to ask questions and read other peoples experiences.

Visit your local travel agents ask if they cater for destination weddings and see what advise they can give you. Especially regarding places suitable at the time of year your looking to get married.

Speak to the people you really want to be present at your wedding; see if they
could come and if they have any date restrictions for when it would be possible
with regards to work, school holiday or other commitments.

Get some quotes from tour operators/ travel agents and wedding planners. Most
people find that all in all it works out less than getting married at home mainly
because it's usually a much smaller group of people to cater for but obviously
it depends on where you have in mind.

Think carefully about after the actual wedding day; do you really want to spend
your honeymoon with mum, dad and the rest of the family. Me personally the more the merrier.

Some couples have a post wedding party when they return so that they can celebrate with friends and family who were unable to go abroad. It's a great chance to get some more use out of your wedding dress and usually brings in some extra gifts!

Done your research and still want to do it; now you just need to decide on
destination; the choice of which is ever increasing. There's French Castles,
Greek Islands, Cyprus Beaches, Exotic Thailand Temples, The Caribbean and the list goes on. I will be popping back to blog about some of the destination choices soon so be sure to follow.
