Vinyl Wedding Inspiration in Honor of Record Store Day

Music has always played an important role in weddings. From Mendelssohn’s distinguished “Wedding March” to the emotional notes of the “Bridal Chorus,” a carefully curated selection of music can set the tone from when guests first arrive at the ceremony until the last groove on the dance floor. So it’s no surprise that for some music-loving couples, the tunes take center stage.

In honor of the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day this Saturday, a day dedicated to the shiny round discs and independently owned record stores across the world, we’re taking a look at some of the fun and creative ways couples have incorporated vinyl details into their wedding. We’re loving the turntable wedding cake that looks real enough to spin a record and the tablescape inspired by “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” that proves music is a beautiful inspiration for just about anything. So steer clear of Urban Outfitters on your record hunt this weekend, and delight in these 12 lovely displays of vinyl wedding decor.

For this music-themed wedding, each table was named after a love song, which was displayed on a record surrounded by white flowers and vintage books. From Maroon 5’s “This Love” to A Day to Remember’s “You Had Me at Hello,” this wedding decor is filled with so much love! | photo by Faye Cornhill Photography | via Rock My Wedding


Record players have certainly made a comeback over the years, but in this colorful and creative cake table, a vintage record player serves as the cake stand for a beautiful three-tiered pink wedding cake. | photo by Lelia Brewster Photography | via Primp & Parker


The theme of this kickass wedding was rock ‘n' roll. For a couple who first connected through music, their black and gold tablescape featured chargers that were customized for each guest and created to look like an LP. | photo by Suzuran Photography | via Want That Weddingvinyl-record-themed-wedding-dessert-display

From this year's collaborative wedding event, The Jam, this epic dessert spread bursting with color is the thing of dreams. 7-inch vinyl records decorate this display, which features colorful cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries and round cookies decorated as vinyl records. | photo via James and Jess | via Green Wedding Shoes

A play on one of the Beatles’ most-loved songs, the theme of this wedding inspiration is All You Need is Love and Cocktails. With a tablescape inspired by “Sgt. Peppers,” a Beatles-inspired menu is tucked into an album cover where a record sleeve fittingly serves as a place mat. | photo by Scott Clark Photo | via 100 Layer Cake

In lieu of a traditional guest book, have your guests write well-wishes on vinyl records. For this wedding, the bride and groom used a custom vinyl with their names and wedding date for a personalized touch. | photo via Cara Robbins Studio | via 100 Layer Cakevinyl-record-table-number-wedding-centerpiece

This DIY wedding was designed by the bride herself, a stationery designer who wanted to incorporate her husband’s love for music into the tablescape. Stemming from a pot of purple Heather flowers, copper wire formed into a heart holds vinyl records with clippings of sheet music, which displayed the table numbers. | via Something Turquoiserecord-player-wedding-cake
