Something "Old"

A common trend we are seeing is brides using the word “vintage” when describing the specific feel and atmosphere they want to achieve for their wedding. We are wondering, however, do these flashback lovers mean “antique” or simply “retro?” Your wedding planners and event designers need details when helping you create the exact ambiance you want. Here are three ways to create a different vintage look that convey three completely different feelings.




Antique: To achieve the antique vintage feel for your wedding, think light pinks paired with cream and gold accents. Try adding antique wedding photographs of relatives around the reception or even as a center piece on a table. These brides love the classic look of romantic pearls or a passed down family locket. Think satin and lace for the bridal party and garden roses for the perfect bouquet.

True Vintage: Think contrasting black and white with a splash of red. These true vintage brides can be seen wearing feathered headbands, beaded necklaces, and a perfect touch of red lipstick. For inspiration, check out some 1920’s photographs or pick up a copy of The Great Gatsby. A vintage wedding is simple, bold, and timeless.

Retro: The retro bride loves polka dots and oversized flowers. Expect a bold invitation in the mail and a sweet Frank Sinatra first dance. This couple loves to make a statement, and expect a classic, Grace Kelly-esque inspired fashion statement. Short dresses, fishnet headbands, and gloves are sure to be found at this wedding.
