Hipster culture has been widely described in this blog, and by now I think that everyone has understood general rules of this new lifestyle. Hipster weddings, and wedding suits related to this kind of ceremony, also already described, are the best way to better understand the essence of this new and unusual lifestyle.
A simple post on a blog is not enough to describe an entire cultural movement, especially when it invaded reality so deeply and affected in a major manner the way of living and thinking of so many people, from teenagers to most adults. The refusal for all that is “mainstream” is perhaps the basic rule to start understanding how a Hipster really thinks.
A kind of new anarchy, which does not lead to any kind of violence or rebellion, but which pulls the indignation toward a highly consumerist and homologated society through a different way of dressing, a particular beard cut or vintage sunglasses. They are the healthiest way exists to say “No, we do not think like you.”
Attending to a hipster wedding is like watching a theatrical performance: wedding suits for grooms who escape from classical strictness linked to the ceremony, gowns for brides ranging from vintage to pin up and bridesmaids and groomsmen who follow the style chosen by the couple. Color is the essence of this style: no black, is too heavy and could sadden the hearts.
Hipster weddings seem apparently be left at random, but nothing is more well-finished than a detail designed to look natural. Generally this kind of weddings tend to be eco-friendly, zero impact, and celebrated in open spaces or small country ruins. The eco-friendly invests each field: from invitations in recycled paper to the newlyweds that go away by bicycle after wedding ceremony.
Tale of a true Hipster story…
The atmosphere that is built is extremely romantic, there is peace and tranquility in the air, it reigns the joy and all the guests are there waiting for the couple to pronounce their promises. Wood is an essential element and a strong presence in Hipster weddings: light wooden benches surrounded by nature… nothing more relaxing and pleasing to the eye.
Very simple floral decorations with wildflowers, some of them put into small jar of glass with simple silk ribbons; blades of grass which tie bunches of flowers, no bouquets too much flashy or colors who clash with the environment: only nature and its beautiful shades. Invitations for guests are handmade, of recycled paper, with initials of couple’s name embroidered by bride’s mother.
No Church choir, no wedding march: actually, sometimes you can find a minstrel who plays country music or a happy song sung by guests. The bicycle for the couple is set in the corner, with sunflowers on the handlebars and a nice placard of good wishes; sometimes you can also find a rickety motor scooter which is always very cool even in these occasions.
And here we are, the moment has arrived … here is the bride with her garland of flowers in her hair, a long dress, smooth, with lace, sleeveless; a green bouquet with flowers in pastel shades, natural makeup, flat shoes and a huge smile.
There, in the middle of nature, the groom is waiting on this little motor scooter: suit in avory cotton piquet which is well matched with white vintage of the bride, red vertical striped shirt, bow tie in green silk, silk handkerchief of a darker green, two-tone shoes, colorful suspenders in pure silk and sunglasses from the 70s.
A beautiful couple, certainly different from a married couple dressed in a sumptuous gown and a classic morning suit, but still beautiful in their so original hipster style. There are no too long and boring ceremonials, just smiles and words of love written by themselves because the classic ritual phrases “in joy and in sorrow, in sickness and in health …” are too “mainstream” for a hipster couple.
The ceremony ends up, the couple is happy, the guests feel the love that reigns in the couple and now it’s time to celebrate. No luxurious entertainment halls, no table spread as in princely castles, no menu from minimal portions with refined dishes. Our hipster couple celebrates in a wooden barn with a very high ceiling and a sloping roof, a band that plays live music, drinks are directly poured from large common jugs and there is music late into the night.
Reception is over, dances are gone and it’s time to greet guests honoring them a little present to thank: no silver spoon, no party favors of porcelain or something like that… our newlyweds give jars of fresh honey and homemade jam : really original.
Hipster philosophy and its so special wedding suits for bride and groom make us live a different fairy tale from the classic Disney stories … but it’s still a story of eternal love!
