Planning a Vintage Theme Wedding
Planning a Vintage Themed Wedding
The key to planning a vintage wedding is honoring what is meaningful about the past. The vintage theme celebrates many eras so you can choose your favorite blast from the past. Guests from every generation will love when your details remind them of something, or someone, they once knew and loved. Yesterday’s details combined with the best of today to make your vintage wedding a success.
Start with invitations featuring rich paper and a period motif. That first stationery sets the tone of all events to come.
Top your cake with a vintage monogram, or, serve cupcakes nestled in delicate laser cut holders for a lacy touch. Display them on cake pedestals arranged at different heights on a distressed wood buffet table. For the centerpieces, try presenting candles in different heights placed on sterling silver scalloped edged trays. Mix and match antique patterned china and glassware instead of matching your place settings. Send your guests home with vintage style key bottle openers and retro-labeled bottled sodas or juices to bring back soda shop memories.
You don’t have to haunt antique shops to put together glamorous vintage fashion. Add an edged lace shrug or a bridal wrap to a contemporary gown to give it a historic feel. These wraps are exquisitely made, with details including satin ribbons, pearls, lace, chiffon and feathers. You may also choose to have them made in white, ivory, or black to make sure that the color is a perfect complement to your wedding style. Ruche silk bridal sashes, available in a variety of colors, can dress up a simple bridesmaid dress. The sash is boned along the front with long streamers that you can tie in the back or front. Add a lace garter, string of pearls, opera length gloves, and a parasol or birdcage length veil to pull together your vintage ensemble.
