How to Have a Hippie Themed Wedding
If you’re a flower girl at heart, why not express yourself with a hippie themed wedding? Here’s how to plan a wedding with a hippie theme.
Would you like to add a bit of hippie flare to your upcoming wedding? If you’re a flower child at heart, a hippie themed wedding may be perfect for you. If you’re not sure how to plan your future hippie wedding, here are some ideas:
Have your hippie wedding outside.
The beach is a perfect setting for a wedding with a hippie theme. You can stand barefoot with your groom on the cool sand and celebrate your upcoming life together. What could be better? If the sand and shore aren’t for you, why not consider a mountain setting for your wedding? You can still go barefoot when you take your vows and feel the cool earth between your toes.
Go for a natural look.
For a hippie wedding, you’ll want to go more natural with your hair and makeup. Wear your hair long and natural with flowing waves. If you don’t have naturally wavy hair, use rollers or a crimping iron to get the look. Add some beautiful flowers such as daisies to your hair along with a few ribbons. Why not choose a 1960’s themed wedding dress to complete your look? The material should be all natural and simple, keeping with the hippie fashion theme. You may be able to find the perfect dress at a vintage clothing or second hand clothing store. If weather permits, go barefoot or wear a pair of sandals.
Be original with your party favors.
Create a fun hippie setting by having beaded table accessories such as beaded napkin rings, brightly colored place mats with funky patterns, and even incense. You can also add special touches such as wedding favors in the shape of little trees or butterflies. If you plan on having your hippie wedding on the beach, sprinkle sea glass and shell necklaces around on the tables. You could also give each guest a small plant to take home to plant in their yard to remember your special day. A centerpiece with a candle surrounded by colorful wildflowers would add a nice touch to an outdoor hippie wedding.
Express the hippie theme with your wedding food.
Why not have your wedding cake decorated with a peace sign prominently displayed in the middle? As an alternative to a wedding cake, you could have cupcakes with peace signs drawn on with icing. These will add to the general hippie theme of your upcoming wedding.
Express the hippie theme with music.
Choose music that was popular in the 1960’s during the hippie movement. Who can forget the song, “I Love the Flower Girl” which might be appropriate for your wedding. Anything by John Lennon may also be consistent with your hippie wedding theme.
A hippie wedding theme can be fun for both you and your guests and will leave you with many happy memories of your big day.
