Inspiration from certain decades makes its way into wedding fashion and decor on a regular, with new influences all the time. We can’t pinpoint exactly where this decor movement started, but it’s certainly here. And that look is pure 70’s!
We’re unpacking this trend and all the details you need to achieve the look.
It started with macrame wedding backdrops and hasn’t stopped there.
With 70’s wedding style having huge influences on wedding fashion and decor, it makes sense the new bohemian wedding is having a moment. Today’s modern bohemian wedding style is about curating a lived-in, natural look that teeters more to outdoor elegance than backyard DIY.
The look is romantic, relaxed and mother-earthy. Head to the natural colors of the earth with rich greens and deep rust tones, surrounded by the perfect set of neutrals. Floral arrangements should have a just-picked, organic feel with extra pampas grass for the win.
Shag or Macrame Wedding Cake
Shag and macrame may be a little on the nose for the 70’s look, but these cakes are certainly a new and cool look! Other popular wedding cake looks that pair with the 70’s vibes are naked or nature-inspired wedding cakes.
Ok, we were only partially joking about the pampas grass! But truly, these boho wedding decor wonders will help you instantly achieve the right look. Wheat stalks may seem an over-the-top nod to the era, but they can be played up or down, depending on how 70’s you really want to go.
Rust tones are hugely popular for weddings at the moment, thanks in part to the comeback of his boho-chic style. Deep reds, coppery browns, rich sandstone all pair beautifully. For Spring or Summer weddings, balance out with pale pink or sage green.
Not feeling for color? No problem. Neutrals look beautiful for 70’s wedding style. Layer textures and fabrics to bring depth to an otherwise simple palette.
