Songs guaranteed to get everyone up on the dancefloor such as The Temptations’ ‘My Girl’ and Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline’ are an absolute must.
Bridal bouquets and flower displays should be full of wildflowers and daisies and, for a true ‘60s vibe, consider daisy chain flower crowns for the bride and bridal party. Your groomsmen can proudly represent the greatest decade by sporting similar wildflower creations in their buttonholes. Kitsch, colorful table centerpieces consisting of authentic 1960’s props will bring a real sense of authenticity to the event. Consider personalizing your special day with photographs decorating the reception venue and adding a vintage glow to each, using brighter lighting elements, will make your photographs authentically pop. For a true ‘60s vibe, wedding invitations in the design of vinyl records will make the wedding guests aware of the spectacular day ahead right from the start.
