Wedding Style Trends from B In A Bonnet: Retro & Rockabilly Wedding Inspiration

Hey Brides, Hey!   My name is Beth and I’m the owner/designer at B in a Bonnet,  and oh how I love all things bridal. bethphoto
My love affair with weddings started at a very young age.  I was a bleary eyed eight year old when my Mom woke me up for Princess Diana’s wedding at 5 am, and back then you had to watch live television! In between spoonfuls of lucky charms, and my Mom saying how wrinkled Diana’s dress had become, I became mesmerized by her 25 foot train.  I was instantly fascinated – Total goner!  The bridal bug had bit me.  

Transforming vintage & current supplies into bridal accessories is B in a Bonnet’s specialty.  I specialize in reconstructions of bridal gowns into bridal belts & headpieces.  Whether I find my goodies at antique stores, estate sales, or a thrift stores, I always squeeze as much love and fabulousness into every piece. Every bride should feel her most fabulous on the wedding day!  Just like Princess Diana, only less wrinkly!

Let’s chat a bit about the most iconic and definitive designs that is flash tattoo. Norman Keith Collins, or most famously know as ‘Sailor Jerry‘, was the true innovator in the flash tattoo style. His influence on the art form of modern tattooing is undeniable and extremely recognizable in the tattoo world.  His depictions of swallows, nautical stars, dice, anchors, and pin up girls (my personal fave) in bold, vivid colors are the absolute classics in flash tattoo design.
More often than not we’ve been seeing brides showing off their beautiful, inked artwork.  Being that a wedding is the perfect venue to showcase your individual style, and if you have gorgeous tattoos – show them off, brides!!!  With all the sensational retro/flash/rockabilly charm, pin those victory rolls tight, slap on some red lipstick and swing dance the night away in your most fabulous pair of Mary Janes!
