Although vintage weddings are always popular, they can take many forms. Vintage refers to anything from a different generation, whether a few decades or 100 years ago. So whether you’d like to channel the classic style of Jackie Kennedy in the 60’s, or capture the crazy party style of the roaring 20’s, a vintage wedding is anything but predictable.
At its heart, a vintage wedding is elegantly wistful, remembering and celebrating a simpler time. It I the partnering of memories and new life, in a celebration as romantic as the day itself. Antique white, champagne and blush flowers such as roses and lilies make traditional wedding bouquets that exude vintage vibes; adding accents of classic pearls is a sophisticated touch.
The vintage in your wedding is evident not only in floral arrangements, but the style of dress, the décor and the venue can all lend to a sense of tradition and legacy. Outdoor weddings can be surprisingly vintage, hearkening to a time before chic wedding halls and colored lights. After an outdoor ceremony draped in luxurious dahlias or hydrangea, strings of Edison lights or rows of candle lanterns can create a romantic, natural garden atmosphere.
To add the final touches on your vintage day, consider asking the older women in your family to look through their closets. Antique lace tablecloths for the gift or head tables; a mother-of-pearl cameo brooch or strings of pearls an all create traditional accents sure to make your day memorable.
