Modern Weddings: 15 Awesome Wedding Tattoo Ideas

by Grace Bonney

This month’s editorial theme is all about weddings and celebrating the outdoors. Our DIY projects will range from clever and crafty wedding ideas to projects that help you celebrate your backyard or local part a little bit more. When we started brainstorming wedding ideas, I thought back to all of the amazing weddings I’ve had the pleasure of attending over the past few years. My favorites have been the ones that were a little different, a little less traditional and a lot of fun. One of the things I’ve noticed a lot of lately are people forgoing rings or other traditional details and turning them into more permanent commitments- namely, tattoos. While it’s widely considered bad luck to tattoo another person’s name on yourself (if you’re romantically involved), I’ve seen some really cool spins on the idea and thought it would be fun to share something outside of the box for our wedding month (I’ve included a few temporary tattoos, too). Not everyone is into lace and flower pomanders so this is for anyone looking for a little inspiration in the other direction…xo, grace
