The current neon trend have you shuddering at uncomfortable memories of the 80′s and 90′s?  Not to worry, neon is a surprisingly easy trend to incorporate to even the classiest of events – even your wedding day.  It’s current, whimsical, and just a touch of rock and roll. I love that unexpected pop of brightness. – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Neon wedding inspiration: Decor

For the table inspiration we did this 2 ways….more of a monochromatic scheme (above), and then punching it up with a little more color (below).  This really could be any color, but since fluorescent yellow seems to be in relatively big supply, it was easy to focus on this first.  In my mind, I wanted to dip lots of stuff in yellow paint…the vases, the silverware, maybe even the plates!  This proved slightly disastrous, and only the forks held the paint sufficiently, but in the end I liked this better….who really wants to dip a full set of silverware for a wedding with 150 guests anyway?

Dipping vs spraypainting: I chose to dip for 2 reasons….#1, I live in an apartment where I couldn’t control where the spray paint would go (believe me, it gets EVERYWHERE), and #2, I prefer the look of dipping.  It gives a cleaner edge  and you dont have to deal with that pesky taping like you would with spray paint.

Since I couldn’t dip the vases as originally planned, I made yellow wraps for them with ripstop fabric I ordered online, which I also used to sew a table runner.  The napkins did get dipped in fluorescent yellow fabric dye (by the way, its the quickest process ever!)

Artist tape played a big roll in jazzing up a normally monochromatic scheme, and creating a fun backdrop for pictures or just to give life to a normally white wall.  While there are lots of tapes that come in neon colors, stick with the artists kind because its safer on walls. Never use duct tape!

These invitations were printed by Paper+Cup without the design on it…instead, Minhee made me a stamp with the heart design and I made my own stamp pad (directions here) so I could use the neon paints I had found to get my pop of color in there.   I kept it really clean for the invitation but let it get a little messier on the escort cards for some contrast.

Neon can play apart in desserts and flowers too…here Betsy from Nine Cakes replicated the faceted heart motif from the invitations, and Sarah from Blossom & Branch sprayed leaves and eucalyptus pods yellow to intersperse amongst the textural white blooms.  Read the directions on the can, sometimes the color comes out better if you’re painting on a white base.

Here’s that artists tape again!  I loved the idea of taking traditional molding found in lots of interior architecture and punching it up with tape to outline its shape.  It really made an otherwise traditional element into something modern and a great backdrop!

So how about it?  Are you daring enough to bring a little neon into your wedding?

Neon wedding inspiration: Fashion

Last December I had the pleasure of visiting Jennifer Behr‘s studio in Williamsburg, and absolutely fell in love with her line of neon veils…right then and there I was determined to show how a modern bride could use them for her own wedding.  Neon is a wonderful accent to stark white and makes for a great pop against a neutral base.  I teamed up with photographer Jenny Ebert of 1. art beauty life and Jackie Weppner of Merci New York to help style the shoot (since I’m a photoshoot newbie :) In this post we’ll focus on how to work neon into your wardrobe, and later this afternoon, how to work it into your decor. Enjoy!

[bouquet by Blossom & Branch, short dress by Ivy and Aster from Lovely, necklace from Roarke NYC, headband from Jennifer Behr, pink trim from M&J Trim used as belt, rings from Alissia MT, shoes by Badgley Mischka and dyed by stylist, (Look 2) dress by Ivy & Aster from Lovely, neckace & bracelets from Kate Spade, headpiece by Jennifer Behr, green trim from M&J Trim used as belt, rings from Alissia MT, shoes by Badgley Mischka and dyed by stylist, earrings bought off a street vendor and painted with nailpolish, balloon by Geronimo Balloon Troopers]

Above: 1 dress, 2 looks….changing the necklace makes a huge difference right?  It’s all about your comfort level…you can go with a subtle pop or go full on color blast!

Cheap trick tip: Adding pops of neon doesn’t have to be expensive!  Sometimes all it takes is a spray can, fabric dye, paint or even nailpolish.  Those earrings you see above?  I bought them from a street vendor and painted them with some fluorescent yellow nail polish!  You can do the same thing with necklaces or other pieces of jewelry too..

Cheap trick: You can buy simple trim from a fabric or ribbon store to add a bit of color to your dress….for this shoot, fluorescent ribbon was used as dress sashes and bracelets!

Dont want to commit to a lot of color all at once?  A pop of pink lipstick, a bright chunky necklace, or even some colorful bobby pins could give your outfit just the punch it needs.
