Ok groovy babes… here’s a trend to love! 🪩

The iconic dance floor decor has made its return to popularity, but it’s finding its way into other places than just the center of the party. Thanks to their reflective magic and ability to brighten up a space, couples are requesting disco balls to bring some cool glamour to their wedding day.

From larger overhead installations to mini disco balls in bouquets, they take the party up a notch. Check out these fun and creative ways that disco balls have been used for Outer Banks weddings!

We’ve been seeing a lot of updo’s lately, like this beaut by @southernblushbeauty_ 😍 But for wedding hairstyles, the possibilities are pretty much endless. Find your stylist and chat with them to figure out what will work for you. Some things to consider are the cut of your dress, the overall style of your celebration, and even the location of your wedding. These factors can call for different looks!
