Grab your roller skates and meet me at the drive-in! This is for the bride that would rather listen to jukebox tunes than classical music and would choose a night at In-And-Out over fine dining. Vendors avoided being too cliche by using overly-traditional diner elements. Instead, they focus on the event surroundings. (Think: tile patterns and strong block fonts) to capture the essence of a retro diner. By using a played-down palette, this was a sophisticated take on the nostalgic era of Happy Days.
