5 The Bride and Groom of Rock N Roll...
Whether you’re paying tribute to “Grease” or still believe Elvis Presley is alive and well, a** Rock n Roll theme wedding is cool without a doubt. Dress up your guests tables with items that remind them of the 50’s and 60’s like a “Pink Ladies” table for all the cute teen girls or a “T-Bird” table for all the bad boys. Have your bridal party dress up in poodle skirts and wingtip shoes to keep the theme rocking and a rolling. And give a request to your band or DJ to only **play hits from the era like Elvis’ “Jailhouse Rock” or Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Great Balls of Fire”.
If you like to **s**urf, swim, and tan than a fun and bright beach theme is just the added touch you need for your wedding. Dress your bridesmaids up in fun bright colors like hot pink and sunny yellow while the groomsmen coordinate their ties with the same colors. Invite your guests to wear light colors and white pants with flip-flops to join in on the summer fun. Find bands that use steel drums for a cool Bahamanvibe and don’t forget the mini cocktail umbrellas for those Margaritas! For your centerpieces add a touch of memory from your childhood with watermelons used as containers for your beautiful sunflowers or orchids with little seashells or starfish decorating the table.
