Are you a rock-loving bride who wants to try something a little out of the ordinary when you say “I do?” To prepare a venue for a rock themed wedding for those brides who may want to stray from the traditional, we have put together some rock theme wedding ideas to help you and inspire you to create the best wedding day ever.
The Bridal Look
Rock your wedding theme with a bridal look that pairs your gorgeous wedding dress with a denim or leather jacket and leather boots. If you are rocking a white dress, try pastel coloured hair and bold make-up, and do not forget to show off all your tattoos for a truly memorable look.
Here are some rock-themed wedding ideas for the bride:
1. Tulle wedding dress with a leather jacket and boots
2. Grunge bride in an ivory dress, a spiked leather jacket with bold make-up
3. Retro lace dress with a black leather jacket and high boots
4. A mermaid dress, leather jacket and pastel hair
5. Rocking blue hair and a brooch bouquet
6. Punk rock bride with purple hair showing up her tattoos
7. Silver sequin wedding dress and pastel pink hair
8. Rock n roll bride in a tea-length dress, denim jacket and black Converse
The Grooms Look
Grooms can also look very hot in rock or rock n’ roll style. Dressing in black and adding a leather jacket looks sexy. Show up all your tattoos and rock some bold coloured tie or bow tie that ties in with the brides dress. Some grooms dare to try colourful hair in pink, purple or blue.
Here are some rock-themed wedding ideas for the groom:
1. Punk rock groom can dress in black with purple hair and red Converse
2. All-black rock groom look with a leather jacket
3. Groom in purple suit, black tie with pink hair
4. Rock tattooed groom in black, bright bold tie with a hat
Rock Wedding Décor
If you can, choose a venue that will fit a rock them vibe. Ideas include theatres and nightclubs where you do not have to add too much to the décor.
At any venue, you can incorporate elements of rock in your wedding day décor. Ideas include guitars and vinyl for a unique guest book for your guests to write their wishes on. Other ideas include use amplifiers as stands to display desserts and wedding cakes. Whisky bottles will be cool favours, and empty bottles can be used for vases or candle holders. Use the names of your favourite bands for décor or table names whether it be ACDC, Rolling Stones or others. Your cake can have guitars as toppers or the name of each of your favourite bands on the tiers of your wedding cake.
Rock Themed Wedding Stationery
When sending out your invitations to the wedding, share your ideas for a rock themed wedding and invite guests to dress up for the occasion. Elvis Presley may just turn up! Ideas for your invitations include having them in the style of a concert ticket, with a tear off section for the RSVP or a pass into a Hall of Fame. Incorporate the motif from your favourite band for added impact with a personal touch to be really creative. You can use this same design across all your stationery and into the décor of your venue.
Rock Themed Wedding Vows
Take inspiration from the rock n’ roll songs that you love. If you want to, you can sing the entire lyrics for ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’ by The Darkness as your vows. For those who can’t hit the notes, here are some other ideas from some of the most romantic lyrics from the most beautiful rock love songs.
‘Iris’ by the Goo Goo Dolls
And I’d give up forever to touch you
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t wanna miss you tonight
‘Real Love’ by John Lennon
Thought I’d been in love before,
But in my heart I wanted more
Seems like all I really was doing
Was waiting for you
Don’t need to be alone
No need to be alone
It’s real love
Yes it’s real, yes it’s real love
It’s real, yes it’s real love
‘Everlong’ by the Foo Fighters
And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
