Dancing Under The Blood Moon

Blood Moon Lamp

JULY 2018 DIY Wedding Theme:

‘DANCING UNDER THE BLOOD MOON’

Each month I will focus on a specific wedding theme. The theme and event design will be explored and expanded upon throughout the month. From inspiration to colors, mood boards to decor & stationery. I’ll include DIY, tutorials, and more that are relevant to specific aspects of the theme such as invitations, centerpieces, floral design, etc.

At the end of the month, I hope you will have a better idea of how to work the design process into your own wedding theme as well as a snapshot of my monthly wedding vision.


Design work (of any kind) is an ongoing process. As we move through each wedding theme new elements will be added throughout the month so be sure to come back to see how the theme is coming together!

Blood Moon + Weddings

There is some folklore based around weddings that are held close to a blood moon.

Some believe that saying ‘I do’ 1-2 days prior to a blood moon will bring luck & good fortune upon the couple.

Does your wedding day fall on the same day as a blood moon? If so, you might be interested to know that Venus (goddess of love) will be bringing passion and love into your marriage.
