Peacock Weddings

A First Class Maui Wedding - Peacock Wedding

Peacock Weddings

More and more modern coupes have become very interested in a peacock wedding theme because of the vibrant color palette and the additional look of elegance and wildness. The most popular peacock colors are aqua, teal, green, gold, black and purple…not all of these colors need to be included, mix and match these colors to for your perfect wedding! Elaborate patterns of peacock feathers display colors of beauty, power and protection. The more accurate name for the peacock is a peafowl. They are known for the male’s extravagant display of feathers of their tail or train. The train of feathers resembles the train of a wedding dress with its long flowing trail of beauty draping behind the bride.

The peacock feather makes for amazing inspiration for wedding themes… In Buddhist philosophy, a peacock represents wisdom and are used in many rituals and ornamentation due to their intricate designs on their feathers. Peacock motifs are widespread throughout Indian temple architecture, coinage, textiles and other types of modern art. Modern brides are including the beautiful peacock feathers in their bouquets mixed with blue, green and purple flowers and plants.

The male peafowl is known as a peacock and the female is known as a peahen. The male is a metallic blue and has greenish-blue feathers throughout its body. His train contains over 200 feathers and each feather ends with an elaborate eye-spot as seen on the royal blue shoes featured above. The female peahen is mostly brown and does not actually have the vibrant colors that the male does. This is because the female needs to remain hidden from predators in order to protect her young while the male is colorful and attractive to female mates.

For a peacock wedding, brides can choose bridesmaid dressed that are completely colors like the colors of a peacock or do more subtle colored dresses with some peacock touches like colored shoes, hairpieces or jewelry.

Peacocks were often kept in menageries and as ornaments in gardens and estates of the wealthy. References in the Bible mention kings owning peacocks to display power. In Medieval times, knights took a “Vow of the Peacock” and decorated their helmets with their plumes, or feathers.

Presenting your ring has never been this fun. There are so many different environmentally sound ways in which you can present them. From putting them on locally grown fruits or flowers to creating something with other objects in nature, eco friendly ring ideas are creative and inspiring. One of the greatest things about keeping your wedding green is being able to hand make almost anything with whatever is around you in nature.

Eco Friendly Weddings – The Bride

Being one with nature on your big day is a very soothing thing (as well as perfect for pictures!). Being out in an open field on a beautiful day will make your wedding pictures flawless and environmentally beautiful. When it comes to eco friendly wedding dresses, many people automatically think “hippie” and “grungy”. That does not need to be the case. Vintage wedding dresses are very fashionable and eco friendly. Another option would be to find fabrics that are locally created for your dress. It will be one of a kind and very green.

Eco Friendly Weddings – Flowers

When thinking flowers, think local. Locally grown flowers cut down your carbon footprint significantly. If you know ahead of time that you want a very environmentally sound wedding, grow your own flowers! There are endless possibilities of both colorful and white flowers you can grow in your own backyard. And when you’re walking down the aisle you can be proud that you grew the flowers yourself and are helping to make the world a cleaner and better place.

Eco Friendly Weddings – Venues

There are so many beautiful places out in nature to have your big day. Beaches, countryside, forrest, backyard… The possibilities are endless. In order to make your eco friendly wedding stand out from the rest, decoration is key. No matter what venue you pick, you want to decorate with local flowers, plants, or anything breath taking that you can find in nature. Construct your own benches out of recycled wood. Use tree stumps as small tables. Anything and everything you can think of in nature will make a great decoration for the ceremony. Again, think local!

Hipster Weddings – History

A “hipster”, (a person who follows the latest trends and fashions) is an up and coming way to live. From the bright colors to the vintage looks, being a hipster is being trendy. It is a subculture that started in the 90′s and is a melting pot of style, taste, and behavior. The distinctive and funky look will turn a normal wedding into a wedding full of style and swag.

Hipster Weddings – Rings

Hipster wedding rings have a retro vibe. While color is important, shape and setting of the ring is just as crucial. A vintage setting for the ring will add an extra boldness to the colorful stone. That’s the thing about hipsters… Normal isn’t good enough. You have to stand out and be memorable and different. That is what makes hipster weddings so much fun.

Hipster Weddings – Flowers

Hipsters like to be considered unusual. Therefore, flowers that are out of the ordinary are a great choice.

Want even more flair? Add a big ribbon or bow to your flower bouquet for extra pop.

Rainbow Weddings

RAINBOW WEDDINGS

With so many colors of the rainbow how can you choose just one for your wedding? These days, you don’t have to! Having a rainbow wedding allows you to include the entire spectrum of colors! A Rainbow signifies the beauty after a storm but do you know how is this spectacle created? I’m sure it’s an optical & meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere. This super amazing natural beauty then results in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky – usually taking the form of a multicolored arc.

Rainbow Wedding Dresses

The colors of a true rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo & violet. Newton, in 1672, divided the spectrum into five main colors: red, yellow, green, blue & violet…he then later added orange & indigo. There are now seven main colors to go with the analogy to the number of notes in a musical scale. We love the idea of having each bridesmaid wearing a different colored dress according to the rainbow spectrum. Super cute!

Rainbow Wedding Flowers

Flowers come in many different shapes, sizes & colors. Rainbow weddings provide a smorgasbord of all kinds of flowers…and there’s not one single flower you couldn’t include in your bouquet!

The color pattern of a rainbow is actually less saturated than the color wheel yet this doesn’t stop bride from using big beautiful bold colors from the rainbow in their weddings. You could have each bridesmaid carrying a bouquet of flowers for each color of the rainbow or have bouquets with different colors of flowers intermixed.

Rainbow Wedding Cakes

Rainbows form a significant part of human culture…they appear frequently in mythology, in the arts & for gay pride. The rainbow is a natural phenomenon noted for its beauty & its place in the sky – why not place its beauty throughout your wedding & into your wedding cake! The decorations are truly up to the imagination. There are white cakes with small rainbow details and once you cut into the cake you see a rainbow marble cake! This is really cool!  You can be bold or subtle with rainbow weddings.

Rainbow Wedding Attire

Rainbows are painted into works of art that are romantic & filled with landscapes and fleeting effects of light. Rainbow flags have a stereotype to represent gay pride, however, they are also used as a sign of a new era, of hope, or of social change. This representation of hope & starting a new life is a perfect theme to have when starting a completely new chapter in your life.

We love the idea of having a suits in an array of colors to express the rainbow theme, but if you are looking for something more subtle then maybe consider the boutonnieres to be rainbow colored or the cufflinks to be each color of the rainbow. The bridesmaids could also take a more bold or subtle approach to their rainbow attire. This picture of the rainbow dresses below are fabulous! And don’t forget the Rainbow sunglasses, they would be a great accessory for a photo booth!

Hope, love & change – Rainbows can represent new hope & new life. How do you feel about rainbow weddings? Would you take a bold approach or take the subtle road? Tell us what you think in the comments – we would love to hear your opinions!

Gothic Weddings

The term “goth” dates back for many many centuries. It is the name of a group of people from East Germanic people who played a role in the fall of the Roman Empire. Over the centuries the term goth has turned into a term that describes a certain type of person; a person who has a dark way of thinking of things. When someone is described as “gothic”, colors such as black and dark red come to mind. Goths do not follow what is “normal” and create their own rules. In this blog we will give goth a whole new meaning in this gothic themed wedding.

Gothic Weddings – Venue

The venue is the most important part of a gothic wedding. It sets the dark and ominous tone and is very unique. The pictures above and below are of Whitby Abbey in North Yorkshire, England. This venue is perfect for your gothic wedding. Between the castle in the middle of a field and the cemetery in the back, this venue is breathtaking while giving you chills. Gothic wedding venues should give you a feeling that you have never felt and will leave you with a memory you will never want to forget.

Gothic Weddings – Dresses

Gothic wedding dresses are rarely white. Because the gothic theme is very dark and ominous, a white wedding dress would take away from the perceived goal of the big day. A white dress with some black trim is always a good choice, adding some extra flair and mystery. The red dress above is a beautiful example of a gothic wedding dress. It is very elegant on top and as you go down it gets more and more unique. The black mesh over the poof at the bottom adds that extra wow factor, making this dress one of a kind. The black dress below is more simple but just as breathtaking, while the white in her hair adds elegance to the word goth.

Gothic Weddings – Table Settings

Half of the battle with gothic weddings are keeping elegance and class while staying true to the gothic roots. Table settings are tough, but done right they can be beautiful. In the picture above we see a classy black and red themed setting with candles to make it more ominous. The black candle holders in the middle of the table remind you that you are at a gothic wedding but is classy nonetheless. Dark red napkins are good choice because they make a statement but again remain true to the theme.

Gothic Weddings – Flowers

Flowers are what will make or break your gothic wedding. Anything too bright will take away from the theme, anything too dark will be too gloomy and sad. The flowers above (black magic roses and black star calla lilies) are the perfect balance of color and black. It’s very important to pick the right flowers because they add greatly to the feeling of the ceremony. Reds, blacks, and purples are always good colors to choose for gothic wedding flowers.

Gothic Weddings – Jewelry 

From flowers to jewelry, everything about a gothic wedding is unique. The wedding ring above adds to the dark theme of the wedding but remains beautiful. Ordinary is not an option when it comes to gothic wedding jewelry. You want something that will shock your audience and make a memory. Again, darker colors is always a good option. Dark stones such as a black diamond or a dark red garnet is a great choice for rings, necklaces or earrings. Elegant, yet unique.

Circus Weddings

CIRCUS WEDDINGS

What better way to have a TON of fun on your wedding day than to have circus themed weddings? A circus is commonly known as a traveling company of performers that typically includes clowns, acrobats, trained animals & other stunt-related artists. All of these acts are introduced by a ringmaster who is the most visible performer in the modern circus.

CIRCUS WEDDINGS – SEATING

A traditional circus performance is held in a ring, usually 42 feet in diameter, this dimension was adopted by a Philip Astley to be able to have a horse rider stand upright on a cantering horse to perform a series of acrobatic maneuvers. All of these acts take place inside of the tent also known as “The Big Top”. This size of ring allowed the acts, especially acrobatic acts, to easily retain their balance. A great way to arrange your seating would be to have tiered seating around the ring for the public, like an actual circus, for wedding guests.

CIRCUS WEDDINGS – RINGMASTER

The ringmaster is the most important because he manages the stage and the performances. The ringmaster can also be the owner & artistic director of the circus. How cute would it be to have the groom dressed as the ringmaster like the couple above did?? Love the red!

CIRCUS WEDDINGS – FLOWERS

Every color looks wonderful for circus weddings…however, red would be a wonderful main color to have. This color would match The Big Top tent, clown noses & ticket stubs. We love that these bridesmaids have similar bouquets to the bride’s bouquet but have more emphasis on the main color, red!

Love the red shoes on the bridesmaids! The light shades of blue & gray of the bridesmaid’s dresses mixes very well with the pops of red in their bouquets and shoes!

You can enter into a circus after the purchase of tickets! Ticket stubs are inexpensive to purchase in bulk for added detail. This table runner made of ticket stubs is brilliant! We LOVE it. Popcorn is another circus treat – this makes for great centerpieces & flower holders! Bright colors & circus music make everyone feel like a little kid again!

CIRCUS WEDDINGS – CAKE

Modern brides have been very creative with wedding cakes. A new trend that keeps popping up is having individual desserts instead of one huge cake! This way there is no time wasted having the cake taken away to be cut and served…now guests can serve themselves with bite-sized brownies or cupcakes! We love the use of ticket stubs on this cake!

Please share your circus wedding pictures & ideas with admin@firstclassweddings.com – we can’t wait to hear from you!

Bohemian Weddings

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS

Being identified as “bohemian” has gone from being an outcast to uniquely different. From the colorful flowers to the distinctive ambiance, bohemian weddings are up and coming. The term bohemian in the past has been characterized by someone who is socially unconventional and especially interested in the arts. Over the years the term has turned into a funky and individualistic trait that is to be desired. The word bohemian, used in this sense, comes from the French “gypsy”.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – THE GROOM

A bohemian groom is known for being slightly hipster; unconventional, if you will. Although his appearance may not be as unique as the bride, his charm brings a whole new element to the term bohemian.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – CENTERPIECES

Bohemian’s love color. Color in everything from flowers to tablecloths to cakes. It brings happiness and uniqueness into anything and everything you want. Take the table setting below, for example. We see a green tablecloth with beautiful colorful flowers in the middle in a rustic setting. This will make for a wedding that will not easily be forgotten.

Colorful flowers, such as ranunculus, draw attention to the bride while offsetting her white dress, making her stand out and be memorable.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – FLOWER GIRLS

Little girls can be bohemian too! This lovely flower girl is rocking the messy hair and fashionable forehead headband, making her stand out and adding an extra charm to an already unique wedding.

BOHEMIAN WEDDINGS – CAKES

Bohemian’s are known for being one with nature. Being unconventional and rustic makes the term bohemian what it is today. That being said, earthy cake themes are the perfect addition to your bohemian wedding. The cake above takes nature and turns it into something elegant and, again, memorable.

Nautical Wedding

NAUTICAL WEDDING

Ahoy, Matey! Are you the type of bride who is “Naut-y”? A nautical wedding may be for you! The word nautical pertains to sailors, ships, or navigation through bodies of water… We want to set sail and float away on this love boat!

NAUTICAL WEDDING – TABLE DECOR

Sailors’ knots & wooden wheels create waves for the eyes to swim across. When we think of nautical weddings we think of very traditional reds, whites & blues… the deep red cherries add beautiful bold color to the neutral base of the table & are a delicious summer fruit!

NAUTICAL WEDDING

White hydrangeas are a great flower to include in a nautical wedding theme. They go well with colored ribbon such as blue & white striped ribbon which is very common with nautical themes.

NAUTICAL WEDDING – CAKES

The gold anchor, pops of red flowers & rope lining the cake make this dessert ship shape! This nautical wedding cake is made of fondant overlay and fondant blue & gold detailing.

NAUTICAL BRIDE

Lacy vintage wedding dresses flow very well with the nautical theme. These dresses look traditional & could be short or long depending on your venue or taste. Going along with the blue & white striped theme… the bride’s shoes are a great way to get those wonderful bold colors into the wedding attire…swipe on some red lipstick & you are ready for your first mate!

NAUTICAL WEDDING – BOUQUET

We have mentioned our love of non-floral bouquets before… but we LOVE this seashell bouquet! This type of bouquet goes wonderfully with the nautical wedding theme and is a memorable keepsake that will last for a lifetime. Tie this bouquet with a little striped ribbon & you are set!

NAUTICAL GROOM

The pinstriped groom’s attire & Sperry shoes are perfect for a nautical wedding. The red, white & blue tie with the starfish boutonniere compliment the bride’s bouquet & overall ambiance of the wedding. Men who boat are typically seen wearing boating shoes such as these & would be comfortable for all the groomsmen as well.

If you have any nautical wedding ideas of your own we would love to see them and chat! Send them to admin@firstclassweddings.com – We can’t wait to hear from you!

Vintage Wedding

VINTAGE WEDDING

Vintage & 20′s style weddings are roaring in… With the Great Gatsby leading trends in the wedding world, vintage inspired weddings are a major hit! The 20′s styles hitting the internet are giving brides tons of new ideas for their weddings. Taking the modern spin out of Gatsby…here is our traditional take on the 20s time period.

Weddings in the 20s were very conservative & photographs were not typically blooming with smiles. The poses were usually primitive in nature unlike the whimsical times we live in now. This is what Gatsby modernized from & how we got the inspirations we have today.

VINTAGE WEDDING

True vintage inspires the styles of today…from the simplicity of the 20s, this photo shoot shows the …the old fashioned look and filter applied to these photos make unique wedding photo albums! In the 20′s it was very popular for the groom to have a coat with tails & a black top hat!

VINTAGE BRIDE & GROOM

It was common for the bride to have a shorter, knee length dress as opposed to the more modern brides who have long trains on the back of their gowns. Since the dresses in the 20′s were shorter brides typically wore stockings of some kind and simple white shoes. Veils were also shorter and covered part of the face…we love this vintage headpiece! The netting is very elegant & inspires the looks of today. Simple shawls provided a sophisticated way to add warmth.

This custom wedding dress was made by Maggie Evans Designs in Boulder, Colorado. The handmade button belt adds beautiful vintage detailing to this bride’s gown!

VINTAGE WEDDING TRANSPORTATION

First Class Weddings took this vintage inspiration to another level by bringing in old school transportation which allowed us to take photos of the couple riding through a field.

VINTAGE WEDDING FLOWERS

Vintage wedding bouquets can consist of any type of flowers…We added a vintage broach to the base of the bouquet. Wouldn’t it be great to have an old antique button, broach or type of jewelry wrapped around the base of your wedding bouquet? The beauty is in the details!
