’70s Inspired Vancouver Wedding at The Permanent

October 25, 2017 | Junebug Weddings

Coco and Dylan’s ’70s inspired wedding at The Permanent will have you transported back in time. This wedding’s style perfectly encompasses the laid back and funky vibes of the 1970s with the groomsmen in floral shirts, the bridesmaids in pants, and Coco in the most perfect flowy Union Bridal dress and intricate headpiece. Coco and Dylan managed to plan their wedding long distance with the help of family and friends. Everything came together beautifully, and all of the lovely details were captured by Hannah Martin Photography and RAW sound + film.

The Couple:

Coco and Dylan

The Wedding:

The Permanent, Vancouver, Canada

I am obsessed with my long sleeve silky gown with deep v neck, pockets, Swarovski crystal buttons that I found from Union Bridal, which is the Galina gown from Houghton NYC. The headpiece was everything when I tried it on, I can’t tell you how delicate and intricate it is. We have chosen white jumpsuits for the bridesmaids, cause it’s sooo 70s! White suit with floral shirts for groomsmen, playful yet classy. We want the whole bridal party to feel confident and look amazing.

It’s crazy since we didn’t have a wedding planner, and we currently live in Taiwan so we had to plan long distance. However, I am very specific about what I want, and what I like. So i decided to plan the whole wedding myself with my families’ support, in total it took us about 1 year to plan everything. Best advice to future brides to be: Start early, and know what you want.

Yes, we totally had a surprise! Our ring bearer actually dropped my ring when walking down the aisle, and the best man noticed it right away and told all the groomsmen and they told Dylan‘s sister, and then she found it on the aisle, then pass it all the way back to best man’s hands. All of this was going on during the ceremony, without me knowing.

We chose a venue space that embraced mine and Dylan’s love for the 70’s music from funk to disco and 70’s fashion elements combining with our personalities, which is casual and effortless.

Definitely Donna from Savoury City, our wedding menu was 100% tailored to us with our Italian and Asian flavours and it’s one of the kind. She was such a great pleasure to work with, always making sure the details are covered, she really went above and beyond to help us. Not to mention everything was delicious!

If I have to say the most memorable, it would be mine and Dylan’s first dance to More Than A Woman by Bee Gees.

  1. Such a cute couple! Love the unique dress and the bride’s headpiece!

  2. Love the color of the dress and the bride’s headpiece was GORGEOUS!

  3. Her headpiece is really interesting and unique and the scenery goes perfectly with their attire and it all seems to shine in their attitudes I love it!

  4. Loving their concept! One of the themes I love for all time though is fairytale weddings. My cousin tied the knot in Italy this year, it was arranged by this global wedding marketplace https://ibride.com/ and it was amazing because they actually rented a castle in Missiano for their fairytale inspired wedding. They pulled it off quite well despite being thousands of miles away during most of the planning.

  5. Omg please tell me where you got that headpiece! I’ve been searching for something just like it

  6. Lovely gray trousers.
