Wedding inspiration: The Rock n' Roll Bride


There's no denying that contemporary wedding style is all about the "boho bride", that is, if we're going by the wedding blogs and Pinterest at least. But rarely is there ever any mention of the "rock n' roll bride".  

As my own wedding day gets closer and final decisions have to be made, I have to say I'm starting to panic more than a little bit about my sartorial choices.  But what if I don't want to wear a floral crown??! What are my other options??! The Pinter/blog-sphere would almost have you believe that a floral crown is the only option (I mean, it does suit my venue and my dress and the bridesmaids dresses...) but maybe I've just seen too many photos of beautiful boho brides that I could never possibly live up to. Or maybe I've just seen one too many flower crowns. (Spoiler alert, I'm probably gonna wear one anyway.) There's just an insane amount of pressure on the bride to look perfect, and no do-overs if you get it wrong. Which for me is a serious and frightening possibility.

They say that when choosing your wedding attire, the most important thing is to be true to yourself and your personal style. And while I love a good boho-flowy-everything-all-the-time look, I'm also just as often drawn to a slightly edgier style. A torn vintage tee, a black leather jacket, studded boots, shit with eagles on it. So with that in mind I decided to dig around the interwebs and try to come up with some Pin-spiration for how one would style the "rock n' roll bride". It wasn't easy. I had to dig deep, people, and fairly far back into the 80s. Think heaps of tulle and puffed sleeves, a heavy veil over short skirt, a stiletto heel and a hidden flask.  It's Sean Penn and Madonna, the November Rain video, animal skin accessories and long white gloves.  And maybe, just maybe, it's about time to bring it back.


The pink invite pictured was for Sean Penn and Madonna's wedding FYI/OMG. Oh and of course Slash had his shirt open at his wedding.  Just of course he did.



















































When I first began this particular inspiration search a few months back, I came across the to-die-for  Bowie Dress (above) by dreamy French wedding dress designer Rime Arodaky. If you haven't heard of her before, trust me you soon will.  I immediately tracked down the only bridal store in the UK that stocks her pieces (in Notting Hill, natch) and booked myself an appointment, you know, "just for fun".  Luckily the way-out-of-my-budget Bowie dress looked terrible on me, but predictably I proceeded to fall in love with pretty much every other piece in her stunning collection. And since I have several different events surrounding my wedding that I'm going to need different dresses for anyway (#justification), I left the appointment with a flustered "so can I like split this over 3 different credit cards? Thanks." 


Watch the 2014 collection video below and try to tell me all you need for the most stylish rock roll wedding ever isn't just a moped, some ankle boots and a guitar? Those chic-as-f*ck  Parisians just do it better

    Accepting Mayweather vs McGregor can clear every one of the obstacles important to complete the arrangement, Moscow would be a far-fetched setting for their occasion.
