All this month look for wedding boards and ideas inspired by this year’s Oscars nominees for best picture from KTG blogger Anna. Today’s inspiration: The Tree of Life.
Wife and mother of the film The Tree of Life says, “The only way to be happy is to love. Unless you love, your life will flash by.” Let these words of love be your guide as you and your future spouse anticipate your upcoming wedding and love-filled life.
For your wedding: The film’s 1950s setting provides a plethora of inspiration for a vintage wedding theme. The film’s 50s fashion is beautifully simple and down to earth. I love the grey and birch tones in this suit worn by Brad Pitt’s character. Jessica Chastain’s character wore several gorgeous pieces; my favorite is this turquoise dress with the classic full skirt and white cuffs. My grandmother had a refrigerator that color, so I know first hand turquoise is truly 1950s. The tree is a wonderfully symbolic and natural element for your wedding. Tree canvas guest books have become very popular with modern couples. Have your guests add their name to your family tree, and hang it in your house as a reminder of the people who celebrated the beginning of your new life as a couple.
