5 tips when planning a vintage wedding
When it comes to popular wedding trends, one of the styles that is definitely on the up is vintage weddings. The great thing about vintage weddings is that you can really make them your own. With so many different decades and styles to choose from, there are a variety of looks that you can create.
Thinking about planning a vintage wedding for yourself, but not 100% sure where to start? To help you along the way we have put together the top 5 tips when planning a vintage wedding.
1 – Think outside of the box when it comes to the venue
One of the first things to think about when it comes to a vintage wedding is the venue. It can be really hard to find the right venue for you, particularly if you have a particular idea in mind. The best way to approach choosing a venue for a vintage wedding is to think outside of the box. Consider venues that might not be everyone else’s first choice and you might just find yourself a gem that you really fall in love with.
2 – Find the perfect vintage gown
An important consideration for any vintage bride is their gown. It used to be the case that vintage brides would only have vintage gowns to choose from, but with more and more boutiques realising that vintage gowns are incredibly popular, you can also choose to buy a thoroughly vintage looking gown, that is actually brand new.
3 – Go for chintzy crockery
Want to create a vintage feel at your reception? If you do, then one of the simplest things that you can do is to opt for chintzy crockery for your wedding breakfast. The great thing about this is that it doesn’t matter if it matches or not. Which is great if you want to source things from different places, as well as find a few bargains along the way.
4 – Opt for a vintage styled bouquet
Another simple way to bring a touch of vintage to your wedding is with your bouquet. There are a variety of amazing bouquet styles out there that you can choose from. For a truly vintage feel we love plenty of wild-flowers, white or pink roses and maybe even a hydrangea or two? It is ideal to tie these up loosely rather than in some of the tighter, modern styles.
5 – Invest in a live band as well as a DJ
Of course, no wedding would be complete without a DJ to play some tunes, however, that doesn’t mean that you can’t bring a touch of vintage charm with a live band. We love the idea of setting the mood as your guests enter the reception, perhaps creating a cocktail hour, complete with a retro microphone stand and an impressive band.
As you can see, there are a variety of different ways that you can ensure that your wedding is thoroughly vintage. Why not try them out for yourself, and see if you can have the ideal vintage wedding for you and your groom?
