Vintage Wedding

Are you an old fashioned romantic? You’re in luck because this years trend is a vintage wedding! Do you love lace, chandeliers, Juliet headresses and all around glamour glow? We’ve got some tips on how to make your vintage wedding amazing.

First up is attire. What could be more vintage than the clothes you and your bridal party wear? We are loving long sleeved gowns and floral head pieces. They bring a great soft touch with the vintage feel. Long sleeve dresses give us that old time vibe when women wore ball gowns! The flowing material and soft lines invoke a great romantic and elegant vibe for the day.

 

Second, let’s look at head gear. We are very into the Juliet veils because they’re so romantic and flowy! You could also just weave a vintage inspired hair comb into your tresses. Or if you have an old heirloom piece and you could incorporate it into your hair or veil.

Third, let’s move on to what you and your bridesmaids will carry for bouquets. For a vintage inspired feel be sure to use the ultimate flower that says “romance” which is the rose. You don’t need to make them red but they are certainly included in a vintage wedding. Peonies and cascading greens also compliment roses. We love adding glam by putting old brooches or cameos into the flowers.

Fourth is the reception. We love the vintage wedding lanterns. They can be simple or glammed up with candles around the lanterns, greenery or sprigs of leaves. You can even include roses and hydrangeas around the lanterns.

 

Whatever your vintage style is be sure to have fun and take ideas from the period of time you love the most!

DIY Crepe Paper Flowers: We know, as well as any bride, that floral can often take up a big part of the wedding budget.  Floral can definitely have a big impact on a space, with its ability to infuse color, texture, and height into a space.  And while many couples decide to pursue DIY floral, it can be tricky, because it often means spending the days and hours before the big day surrounded by flowers, floral tape, and everything else you need to floral elements come together.  But what if DIY floral could be done weeks and even months before the big day?  Perhaps couples everywhere would rethink it.  With these DIY crepe flowers, DIY has never been easier, especially because you don’t have to wait until the day before to prep; there isn’t the living plant element to deal with.  We love these flowers for centerpieces, bouquets, and even boutonnières for the guys.


Save the Date Postcards: We love how creative couples get with their save the dates, and this adorable postcard is no different!  The photo and short caption on the front keeps things simple, and the details on the back are organized and easy for guests to read.  Another bonus to these cute save the dates is the savings you can have with postage.  Postcard stamps are significantly less expensive than regular stamps, which means you can send adorable save the dates and score a win for the budget.  What’s not to love about that?


Kate Ketzal Clutch: We are always on the lookout for fabulous bridal accessories, and this sparkly clutch had us swooning at first glance.  Small enough for a bride to tuck in her hand during a receiving line or cake cutting, yet large enough to stash lipgloss, bobby pins, and a mini perfume, this pint-sized purse is a match made in heaven.  The intricate detail and overwhelming bling factor make it extra special.  And though we’ve seen celebrities toting similar jeweled clutches on the runway, this one comes without the A-list price tag.
