Practical meets unique wedding style! As a Type 5, The Investigator, you are insightful and at home with your bold sense of style. Bring on the geometric design elements and bright color palettes because your wedding day is all about color and taking things a little off the beaten path. You may choose to pull from non-traditional wedding patterns and textures like velvet linens, dried florals, and stained glass to set the tone for a grand party.

Pampas grasses, greenery, and rich earthy and gem tone florals in interesting shapes (we love those golden billy balls!) accented against modern geometric metallics will give your event that nod to the 60s you are totally obsessed with. Can’t narrow it down to a handful of colors? Perfect! Mix it up with lots of colors and make a bold party statement!
The 1960s, of course, calls to mind Woodstock in 1969 and relaxed outdoor celebrations. Consider an outdoor venue or natural setting for your ceremony and/or reception. Use the opportunity to incorporate the flowers and greenery of your particular region into your decor. Search out interesting local finds, find a local ceramist to create unique vases for your gorgeous florals. Use candles to create a warm, romantic light. Mix and match glass, wood, metal, or clay votives on guest tables.
Flowers in your hair, flowers everywhere! Surprise guests with a beautiful and completely vibe-setting invitation. We love the high contrast of this gorgeous invitation by Poeme in Cincinnati. An envelope liner with a charcoal black background and bold florals that matched the bride’s dried floral bouquet set the tone for a gorgeous outdoor wedding celebration in Texas.
The thick, luxe stationery pieces were letterpressed. Each piece featured dramatic rounded corners with edge painting. Modern fonts, lots of white space, and matching custom postage stamp pull the whole invitation suite together. The bold floral liner added drama allowing the letterpress enclosure pieces to add a quiet, firm elegance.
Your wedding dress sets the tone for the whole day. Circling back to your core style principles of practicality and uniqueness, finding a dress that is casual and comfortable, flexible and fun is key. Annie McGinty, owner of Ivory & Ash Bridal Styling Studio shares two of her indie designer dresses that fit the bill! These dresses are both long and slim column shaped gowns that are easy to wear and structured. Both can be styled with accessories including veils, statement earrings, or hairpieces to get just the look you are going for!
Imogen is a beautiful, simple wedding dress with classic neckline that gives off sexy vibes. The V line back mimics the front which features minimalist panels that give it a 60s vibes. The dress has a lot of structure and an empire waist. You can jazz it up with vintage or clay earrings. Wear a headband sash or pile your hair into a fabulous updo. This dress can be transformed into anything you want.
Made With Love by indie designer, Marylise is a slim fitting, super boho wedding dress with detailed scalloped lace. The keyhole back is also dressed in scallop lace detailing and features pin dot illusion lace at the decolletage. Darts at the chest give it structure then flows into a loose a-line skirt. The dress is very flowy, for the easy-going bride. Pair this dress with dainty earrings, a long flowy veil, hair clip or nothing at all. We love this dress for the bride who wants to stand out but not be encumbered by her dress.
Tanya at Gilded Social in Columbus suggests the Dessy dress collection for the wedding party of the Type 5! The dresses come in a wide range of classic looks with a vast selection of specialty fabrics. The dresses color palette closely follows true Pantone shades, making their style practical and unique!
Cake pops! A fun alternative or addition to your dessert offerings. Wow your guests with an assortment of flavors. Go for a dozen each of Chocolate Malt, Lemon Lavender, English Toffee, Red Velvet, and Banana Cream! So many options! And these are just a handful of the flavor offerings from Cleveland based bakery, Jenni Pops. Jenni Pops has a stellar reputation for crafting not only one-of-a-kind designs, but the taste is absolute deliciousness.
