Mini Truck Bride

I’ve heard of a lot of unique wedding themes but I think couple Michelle and Josh may have taken the cake (no pun intended!) when it comes to the most unexpected theme for a beautiful blonde from Malibu: Mini Trucks.

When I was first introduced to the term “mini truck”, I immediately went right to Google. And even then, it took me awhile to figure out what the term meant and why in the world it was this couple’s wedding theme! Apparently, Michelle and Josh’s relationship began around the idea of trucks so, as a symbol of love between them, they wanted to incorporate trucks into their wedding.

I love that Michelle and Josh wanted their “story” of them as a couple to remain consistent from the day they met one another, to falling in love, through their wedding day. However, as much as I’m sure Michelle loves trucks, I’ve never encountered a bride who didn’t want a beautiful, romantic wedding. If Michelle’s wedding became all about trucks and masculinity, would it really be a reflection of Michelle and her innate dreamfor her wedding day?

Michelle was able to indulge in a fabulous, feminine day thanks to Bridal Guide and the Rex Agency. Wearing three of my David Tutera by Faviana bridal gowns, Michelle wore three different looks and did a photo shoot to be featured in Bridal Guide magazine’s March issue! There were veils, bridal accessories, diamonds, hair stylists, makeup artists, the whole package! It is of the utmost importance to me that my brides feel beautiful, confident, and feminine on their wedding day. This day of indulgence for Michelle reminded her just how important it was that her day was a reflection of her fiancé and herself.

The best part about this wedding was that Michelle was able to let go a bit and allow me to give her the wedding (not truck show) that she truly wanted. Do you remember my bride Chrissy who chose Alice in Wonderland for her wedding? Her black wedding dress was a crucial element to her wedding and I would have never taken that away from her. With Michelle, I knew she wanted to honor her and Josh’s love of mini trucks in her wedding. You can absolutely incorporate a theme or unique idea for your event as long as you do it subtly and with great taste!

The moment I presented the reception area to Michelle and Josh, I could feel a slight tinge of disappointment from them when they realized there were no mini trucks at their wedding. Fair enough, the wedding’s initial theme was, in fact, mini trucks. Little did Michelle know, I ended up placing mini trucks around the perimeter of the reception space. Creatively downplayed by sheer white drapery in front of the trucks, her theme was incorporated into her wedding reception but not overwhelmed by it. Even the most outlandish event ideas can become an integrated element at any event as long as it’s done with style!
