Rock 'n' Roll Glam Same-Sex Wedding Inspiration

You don't have to choose between punk rock edge and a bit of sparkle. This gorgeous wedding look was inspired by rockers who push limits with their style, like classic rock idols David Bowie and Billy Idol or modern rock n rollers like Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie. These two grooms channel their inner rockstars with fashion-forward outfits and unique hairstyles. A black, red, and silver palette keeps the look edgy yet chic. I love how the concept of hard and soft plays out in a mix of textures like leather and plush velvet, studs and sequins. Lyrics on the invitations and signage keep the focus on the musical inspiration.
