Okay, okay, it’s not a real wedding, but it definitely is an amazing under the sea-inspired photo shoot.
This “hipster mermaid” themed mock-wedding was a passion project put together by Traci Hines and Your Cloud Parade to give couples the inspiration they need for their own themed weddings. The result is the perfect mix of whimsy, color, and a nod to our favorite mermaid.
Everything from the dress to the invites to the table scape were absolutely perfect.
Seashell and hipster glasses macaroons. Why didn’t we think of that?
The (model) groom wore a cool swirly patterned tie. We totally appreciate the less literal nod to water in this choice.
Water color invites and stationary were definitely the right way to go for this theme.
The model bride didn’t go with puffy 1980’s sleeves, but instead chose a beachy, dip-dyed gown.
Model bridesmaids kept it casual with kelp-like circle skirts and sea shell crop tops. We really dig the side braids and shell accessories.
After choosing a gown, designing table settings and floral arrangements might be just about the most fun part of planning a wedding. We really liked the mix of shells, air plants, and peachy flowers.
Paper craft wall decorations are one of our favorite ways to spruce up a backdrop, and they nailed it with these shells.
The faux wedding party, looking adorable.

And finally, the dress.
