Embrace the Barbiecore Spirit
To successfully achieve a Barbiecore wedding, it's essential to fully embrace the spirit of Barbie. Think pink, bold, and unapologetically glamorous, like our Mia Convertible dress in English Rose. Incorporate these elements into every aspect of your wedding, from the invitations and decorations to the attire. Barbiecore is all about celebrating femininity and embracing your inner diva.
Choose Barbie Pink Bridesmaid Dresses
The first step to infusing Barbiecore into your wedding is selecting the perfect pink bridesmaid dresses. Opt for dresses in vibrant shades of pink that embody the essence of Barbie. From pale blush to our mulberry pink, there are loads of options to suit every skin tone and style preference. When choosing the dresses, consider the silhouette and fabric that best flatter your bridesmaids' figures. Many of our brides will pick out a color (or color palette) and let their bridesmaids choose the dress that best suits their personalities and styles.
Mix and Match Styles
To add a playful touch to your Barbiecore wedding, consider mixing and matching different dress styles for your bridesmaids. This creates a dynamic visual effect while allowing each bridesmaid to showcase her individuality. From strapless to halter necklines, experiment with various styles that complement the overall theme and make your bridal party stand out.
Accessorize with Barbie-inspired Details
Complete your bridesmaids' looks with accessories that pay homage to Barbie. Think big statement jewelry and sparkling headbands. These accessories will add a touch of whimsy and tie the entire bridal party's look together. Encourage your bridesmaids to embrace their inner Barbie with their hairstyles and makeup choices, opting for voluminous curls or a classic updo with a pink lip.
Coordinate with Barbie-inspired Bouquets
Your bridesmaids' bouquets are another opportunity to infuse the Barbiecore theme into your wedding. Opt for floral arrangements in shades of pink, white, and pastels. Roses, peonies, and lilies, which all have pink varietals, add a touch of elegance. Add colorful ribbon accents in complementary pink hues to tie the bouquets together seamlessly.
Transform your wedding venue into a Barbie dreamland by incorporating Barbie-inspired decorations. Use pink and white balloons, streamers, and fairy lights to create a whimsical ambiance. Consider adding touches of glitter, sequins, and metallic accents to add a touch of glamor. Incorporate Barbie-themed centerpieces, such as miniature Barbie dolls, Barbie cake toppers, or vintage Barbie accessories, to enhance the overall theme.
Fun Photo Opportunities
Create a designated photo booth or area where guests can capture their own Barbie-inspired moments. Provide props like oversized sunglasses, feather boas, and cardboard cutouts of Barbie and Ken. Encourage your bridesmaids to strike playful poses, capturing the essence of the Barbiecore theme. These fun photo opportunities will ensure that your guests have a memorable time while embracing the spirit of Barbie.
No Barbiecore wedding is complete without a delightful dessert display. Incorporate desserts that reflect the theme, such as pink macarons, cupcakes with edible Barbie toppers, and a tiered Barbie-inspired cake. Consult with your pastry chef to create a dessert table that perfectly complements the color scheme and adds a sweet touch to your Barbiecore wedding.
