Wedding inspiration:   An   Ode to the Seventies revival 

“The Seventies is what I love. Soft, touchable beauty: 
that’s what I love.” - Tom Ford

The 1970s are known for a lot of things: disco, flowing hair for women and men, bell bottoms, billowing peasant blouses, and cultural shifts that would change the future.

Crazy Ideas Disco inspiration You Would Like To Tryagain

 As a decade, its fashion, beauty, and cultural trends centered around the wild and free; less psychedelic than the 60s yet just as much fun. 

Grooving to the disco beats on your wedding day is just one easy and fun way to throw some retro fun in the mix, but our wedding planners have a number of other suggestions to help make your big day stand out and leave all your guests thinking, “That’s SO 70s!”

1. Fit, Dyed, AND Flared!  Seventies Fashion for Brides and Grooms

We all know that bell bottoms are quintessential seventies fashion staples, but that doesn’t mean you have to bust out some old denim in order to carry the seventies with you down the aisle. Ruffles and flare are a 70s trend that fits well into any bridal gown, or you can get creative and add a touch of tie-dye to your look to really bring back the disco vibe.

2. Feathers and Volume and Sideburns, Oh My!

The 70s flew across the spectrum in terms of trendy hair. The early 70s were all about feathery, light locks that rested softly around your face. Brides can look at old photos of Farrah Fawcett for that classic feathered inspiration, and even use a wig or extensions to add some natural lightness to their current locks. You can also lean into the disco frenzy and shoot for va-va-voom: whether that’s gorgeous curls or vivacious natural iconic Afro worn by Pam Grier. Grooms, you may want to start working on your mustache and sideburns ASAP.

3. Soft and Sunkissed- 70s Beauty Inspiration

Just as the famous fashion designer Tom Ford said, 70s beauty is all about that soft, sunkissed, barely flushed look. A touch of blush and bronzer is really all that’s needed, with a bright gloss across the lips and lids for that extra wow factor. Effortless yet stunning, seventies-inspired brides will positively dazzle as they walk down the aisle.

4. Disco Fever Down Your Dance Floor with 70s Reception Music

The seventies are jam-packed with disco hits that make any reception a party all night long. Dancing Queen, Love Train, Boogie Wonderland- these are fan favorites that will blow your guests away and encourage everyone to pull out their best dance moves, a simple yet creative way to really nail the 70s aesthetic.

5. Save Room for Dessert or Cake!

Seventies desserts are sweet, groovy, and fun ways to incorporate creative and delicious 70s themes into your wedding. From watermelon ice to black forest cake, the wide variety of popular 70s sweet treats means you’re sure to find something you’ll love. You can also go for the classic chocolate fondue fountain: that’s a feature that’s sure to get your guests talking (and eating!)

6. Peace, Love, and Good Vibes on the Table

70s decorations are the perfect balance of elegant yet sweet. Stick to warm tones linens like oranges and yellows, and incorporate peace signs or disco balls throughout your venue and tabletop designs for a less-than-subtle homage to the era. You can also borrow a Volkswagen van for an on-site photo prop- whatever your heart desires!

7. Food Truck Fun

Adding a food truck into your wedding is the perfect way to end the night. Whether it’s the classic ice cream truck of your youth or something a bit more tied to you and your fiance’s preferences, incorporating one of these fun food trucks is a perfect late-night surprise to reveal later on at your reception.
