Feel the Burn: Burning Man Wedding Inspiration 

With burning man around the corner we can’t help but feel inspired. Taking place only three short hours from Lake Tahoe, burning man is built on the foundation of ten main principals: “radical” inclusion, self-reliance, and self-expression, as well as community cooperation, civic responsibility, gifting, decommodification, participation, immediacy, and leaving no trace. The creativity, love and sense of community that burning man inspires has us loving burning man weddings. Plus what a fun creative theme for your big day. While not considered a traditional wedding theme, weddings are meant to encompass you and your partner as a couple and if the two of you love burning man why not carry that love over into your wedding.

While getting married on the playa sounds dusty there are ways to incorporate burning man themes into your wedding away from the playa. Lake Tahoe is the perfect place and feeling for these weddings with its big open meadows and cozy woods there is a certain feel about it that can make it feel like the playa (without all the sand and dust). Bikes, art cars, music and costumes for your guests are all things you can incorporate into your wedding. Tents, bright colors and patterns are also ways to give your wedding a burning man vibe.

While we understand that burning man might not be everyone’s cup of tea, we can all agree that weddings are meant to be fun and a burner wedding definitely encompasses every essence of fun, love and art.
