Top tips to acheive this rockabilly wedding look
Rockabilly wedding = Rock 'n' Roll!
Rockabilly is an early form of ‘Rock n Roll’ dated back to the 1950s. It’s got a mix of country, boogie and swing which means it’s super flexible as a wedding theme.
We love the bright red matched with bold black for contrast. Those red braces really rock against the black shirt! Our brides veil is decorated with red roses matching to the bright red underskirt of her dress. Perfect! And those shoes! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Mix and match your rock n roll wedding style
Wanting some ideas for Rockabilly wedding styling? Go for vintage records, red and black playing cards, gramophones, traditional coca cola bottles and red roses. How about booking a vintage DJ to entertain your wedding guests! That would certainly get everyone up on the dance floor.
