Vintage themed weddings have been on trend for some time now and continue to be standing strong amongst couples planning their day. With associated terms such as rustic, romance, glamour and elegance all conjuring up feelings of old-world charm and nostalgia, it’s no wonder couples are still being drawn towards the steadfast Vintage Wedding Trend.
If you find yourself pondering a vintage theme for your upcoming wedding celebration, take a look at our list of suggested ways to create an old-world feel on your special day.
Think soft floral embroidered headpieces, flowing lace gowns dappled with floral appliques, fringing and feathers, high necklines and long sleeves when it comes to choosing or designing your wedding dress. Nothing too forced or too big. (No meringues-like dresses!) Glamour and elegance is all you’ll need for the striking image of a vintage bride.
Antiques and family heirlooms are increasingly being incorporated into weddings to add not only a vintage feel, but also a more personalised touch. Old family photographs, frames, suitcases, candle sticks, even grandma’s lace doilies or tablecloths can all be placed around the room to evoke the intended feel. Guest dining tables need not all be decorated identically either. Mismatched décor items just add to the authentic vintage feel of the day.
A combination of vintage and modern chandeliers or candelabras to cast a soft glow over the space will create the perfect feel for your old world reception. Warm neutral colours will add to that familiar feel of the vintage style and with many couples now asking their guests to be ‘fully present’ in the celebration by turning off phones, cameras and other gadgets, a true early 1900s atmosphere can certainly be achieved.
