[ACE 8 - The Robert Norman Edition]
Since it's Robert Norman Week - Lindsey compiled an ACE 8 for Robert's wedding. For those of you who know Robert, you know that he is in love with all things 1950's and of that era. Kitchen appliances, cars, music, style...everything! Which is what inspired us to put together a style board for Robert's one-day wedding.
Swanky hotel parties were all the rage and since we would never host Robert's theoretical wedding at a boring wedding factory, we thought a sexy nighttime party at the Roosevelt Hotel would be the perfect fit!
Clockwise from the Top Left -
1. Menswear: Retro inspired with a modern twist! These men have given a lot of personality + put their own spin on a very well known 1950's wedding look.
2. Transportation: Arrive + depart in nothing but classic style. The mint colored Oldsmobile is the perfect mode of transportation for this wedding day!
3. Escort Cards: A simple card stock swing tag with a little bit of bakers twine is the perfect embellishment to these vintage inspired Coca Cola glass bottles.
4. Chairs: These retro style chairs add a fun + bright touch to the reception space. Mixing + matching colors is a great way to incorporate some of the unique color combinations that were often seen in the 1950's.
5. Record Chargers: Stop by a thrift shop or start vintage shopping online to fine an assortment of records form the 1950's + 1960's . These are not only the perfect charger size, but will definitely get your guests talking about and remembering the incredible music that came from those albums.
6. Guest Book: Have your guests to leave a little note or well wish on a vintage typewriter. Not only will they have fun typing away click by click, but it will give you a really authentic keepsake from your wedding.
7. Lounge Area: Whether it is actual vintage furniture, or a modern version of living room classic pieces, give your guests a space to put their feet up + rest between swing dance sets. You can incorporate the colors from the other furniture you are using in the venue, and remember, everything matched in the 50's.
8. Dance Floor: Dance the night away to music from all decades on a retro style black and white checkered dance floor. Not only is it appropriate because it was this the traditional flooring in homes + soda shops for years, it also makes for a killer element in wedding photos!!
