Stylist Kristin Rapisardi of Lustre Theory is blowing our minds right now with her version of a 60’s Mod ice cream bridal shower! The fact that it combines amazing colors, macaron ice cream sandwiches and everyone’s favorite vintage era, equals only one thing? Pure magic of course with a cherry on top!

Kristin used color to define this classic look. Bright, bold color is splayed in geometric patterns and vintage influence and focuses on color blocking, hints of bright yellow, orange, pink, and pastels.

Not wanting to copy the well known Twiggy style, the team added a more playful approach to makeup and the use of color. Different elements of the 60’s hair and makeup trends were chosen for the models, voluminous hair, lots of eyeliner and large bright accessories.

Scroll on through for tonnes of super sweet inspiration and even more details on how you could get this look for yourself…

Strawberry Milk Ice Pops

You might be reading this, thinking what is she thinking? DIY’ing your own ice pops at a summer wedding? Surely they will melt? Well it’s actually not that crazy! The great thing with ice pops is that they can be made way in advance and stored in a freezer and they can be served easier than your think? Some sort of refrigeration will almost definitely be needed but you could have friends and family help with serving them up at your wedding, taking them straight from the freezer and placing in metal buckets topped with layers of ice, or just get your guests to help themselves straight from the cart.

With summer being the most popular season for weddings and the weather topping 30 degrees in the UK this week, we thought these recipes would be perfect for keeping you and your wedding guests cool this summer
