Something Old, Something New, Something Vintage

Older trends are always coming back into style, whether it’s your mom’s high wasted jeans and big sunglasses, or your grandma’s chunky costume jewelry and red lipstick. But who ever thought that older trends would be making their way into modern day weddings?

Vintage inspired weddings have become increasingly more popular. Couples are taking aspects of the past and making them new again – and I absolutely love it!

When it comes to vintage wedding decor, less can be more. Antiques, vintage pieces and props from your parent’s attic can create the perfect feel.  Adding a modern twist with candles, salt and pepper shakers, greenery, even different shaped vases and perfume bottles, can be all you need to create a romantic atmosphere that reverts back to simpler times.

Splashes of color and flowers in different shaped vases, accompanied by various candles, are an easy addition to wedding décor to add romantic flare to your wedding.

Nothing shows personality more than the clothing you choose to wear. Bringing your vintage-vision to wedding day wear easily reflects the feel of what you’re going for.  Three piece suits and classic lace takes elegant fashion from the past to chic modern day glamour.

Chantilly lace was big in the 1950s, while  in the 1960s Venice lace was the rage.  Using these aspects for your modern day vintage inspired wedding can really bring in an authentic feel. You can even combine antique and modern bridal jewelry!

Continue the feel with your food and vendors as well!  Add lace or detailing to your cake and desserts, or use theme inspired serving plates and baskets.

Having your band look the part will definitely help keep the mood going as well!
