Find Your Wedding Inspiration: 50’s Themed Wedding
50's Blog

Have you ever been drawn to a specific era? For me that era is the 50’s. I always thought that if I met my grandparents when they we’re in their 20’s we would have been best friends. Then it got me thinking.. Why couldn’t you have your wedding theme be inspired by an era you wished you lived in? So here is our take on that theory:

The Whimen’s Inspiration: The 50’s! Colors: Muted tones of pink and mustard with punches of the Whim staple- Teal.

Tablescape: Since we wanted to keep the 50’s feel we made the dining area picnic inspired! We brought in that Picnic look with patterned napkins, a clean wood table and bright snapdragons- just like in Mom’s backyard! Plus, who can resist classic picnic food. Deviled eggs and a jello mold? Yum!

Florals: It’s so hard to choose just one flower for your centerpieces and in most cases we are always encouraging of not picking a class pet. However, these snapdragons we’re just irresistible and too perfect for the color scheme. So the gold star goes to the snapdragon.

Details: It’s very important to us that every detail of the event had a hint of nostalgia. So the paper was inspired by vintage typography and old school slideshow cameras, The View Master – talk about a throwback! The Hive Bar was a huge influence and essential piece to this event as it brought in the nostalgia and served up classic drinks with a twist, Don Draper would be proud.

Boston Styled Picnic E-Shoot with Summer Street Photography

Back in December during our 12 Days of Whim Contest, we gave away a sweet photo sesh to one lucky couple…their very own picnic styled engagement shoot, styled by Whim and photographed by Summer Street Photography!  Deidre and Casey were the lucky winners, but is it cheesy to say we felt like winners to be able to style a shoot for them?! They are soooo adorable and huge lovers of wine, cheese, anything Napa Valley and good tunes.  So we packed our picnic basket full of goodies from Formaggio Kitchen and set up a cozy little spot in Concord for them to relax.  Photographed by our dear friends, the amazingly talented Summer Street Photography, we couldn’t have asked for a better day!  Kinda makes you want to play hooky today, doesn’t it?  Enjoy!
