Michelle and Sam rock n’ rolled down the aisle with the help of Melissa of The Sweet Society‘s creative ideas (and amazing candy buffet) for their Rockabilly Wedding! Red, black and white decorations with bold polka dots and a cherry on top transformed this 1950’s look into a fun & modern wedding celebration!

– Creative paper flower bouquet with feather accents + red suspenders for the groom
– Cupcake tower with a custom topper modeled after the happy couple!
– Playful “Strike A Pose” Photo Booth

WEDDING DETAILS, as told by Melissa

For this wedding the coupled wanted to create a fun celebration with their friends and family. It was held at The St Kilda Kiosk in Melbourne, Australia, one of our famous landmarks along the beach. The ceremony was held out on the deck overlooking the bay, and then followed by the reception in the adjoining restaurant.

When styling this event I wanted to incorporate the masculinity and femininity of this great theme, to create this cool rockabilly candy buffet, which was also used as the guest’s thank you gift. We also created a wishing well table and photo-booth.

I just love the color palette. The red black and polka dot and that vintage car is a lovely throwback to a bygone era. Nice!

This is a wedding after my heart!! My own wedding was a 1950s, turquoise & red themed wedding. My husband actually restored a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain for us to ride out in… but we actually forgot to take pictures with it, cause we were having so much fun dancing!
