It’s every bride’s dream to have an exceptionally unique wedding, and what better way to express yourself other than using vintage attires and décor? Here are ten ideas you can incorporate in your wedding to give it a fresh look.
1. Wedding Gown
The first thing I’d say is to find a mermaid wedding dress. I think they are perfect for a vintage look, for example this beautiful dress from Pronovias US is perfect! You can tone down the detail and opt for simple v-neck wedding dresses with a medium sized tail.
Vintage weddings call for bold statement accessories. Brides are encouraged to pair their mermaid wedding dresses with chunky earrings and bring the whole look to life. An additional tip for accessorizing, do not wear too many bold accessories. Keep it simple and classy.
While bows are an attractive option, add a little touch by adding some balloons to some of the chairs as decoration on the seats. Don’t be afraid to mix up the colors.
4. Table Setting
Rather than go for the conventional vase and flowers, put up rustic wood then place a spray painted wine bottle with lilies or Eskimo roses.
5. Car Décor
Tule and flowers can be but doesn’t have to be overrated. Don’t be afraid to change things up and replace tule with organza car garlands. Or, you can go big on lace. Better yet, blend the two and throw in some ribbons to come up with a fresh idea.
6. Roofing Decoration
We are so accustomed to using Chinese lanterns and ribbons, but you can tone down the color and use the conventional lamps. Incorporate Baby’s breath and ferns to liven up the mood.
7. Bride’s maid’s Attires
How about you dress your bride’s maids in Cinderella dresses and make them in tea length.
Get to the venue in style with a beetle VW, Rolls Royse, or even a chariot and horse entourage. You can add your theme decoration to your chosen transport option to make it blend into the mood.
9. The Aisle
Walking down the aisle should be a memorable moment. If you cannot find a unique vintage carpet or rug, ask your planner to use white flowers instead. This will look much better if yours is a garden wedding since it will provide a vivid contrast between the two colors.
10. The Alter
Go naked with green and white flower options. Lillies, fern, baby’s breath are some of the best choices you can opt for. Add candles and lanterns to accentuate the ambiance. Take a look at more option that you can add into you the alter’s decoration for when you say ‘I Do.’
There you go! Planning your vintage wedding should not be too hard. Get your inspiration from the early years or even ask your grandma for tips.
