Vintage style wedding

Nowadays, every couple wants their original wedding to be the most beautiful, interesting and unforgettable. Any whim can be satisfied and the only limitation consists in financial capacity. The latest wedding trends are increasingly turning to the old days. After all, our past has a rich history and is an inexhaustible source of good style and taste when there was another life and other people filled with bright hope, purity and creativity. Perhaps, this is precisely why vintage style is so popular today. It appears not only in interiors and casual clothes with accessories. Many modern couples want to have a vintage-style wedding ceremony.

Vintage-style wedding decor

Someone wants to walk down the aisle in a simple and intimate atmosphere, while someone prefers luxury and much pomp in everything. Vintage allows both. Nevertheless, a wedding in this style is a small event, where the newlyweds are in the spotlight, surrounded by the atmosphere of the past, so charming and unforgettable. This is an amazingly elegant event with a consummate sense of style.

Vintage decor begins with a wedding invitation. People create them of aged paper, use a warm ink tone and retro fonts. On the one hand of such a card, you can write an invitation text by hand. On the other hand, a photo of the loving couple is often placed, which is being aged through special means. If your original weddingis vintage, you can additionally decorate invitations with floral patterns, beads, brooches, bows, lace. The main thing is that they are designed in a delicate floral color palette, which will correspond to the hall decoration palette, wedding dresses and holiday floristry. Although vintage can be different (strict, delicate, elegant, warm and romantic), the color scheme should be devoid of any expression. That is, choose such calm, pastel and light colors as pink, light gray, white, coffee and similar shades. If you want your original wedding to be more expressive in flowers, give preference to shades of precious stones: ruby, pearls, emerald, sapphire.

The newlyweds’ look and a dress code for guests

The color of the bride’s dress does not have to be white. The ideal solution is pastel muted tones, coffee with milk, champagne splashes, etc. The main vintage sign at the wedding is a comb with precious stones, an exquisite veil, which is complemented with a brooch, stockings, shoes of that time, lace gloves. Lace must be present in the decor of the dress.

A vintage-style wedding ceremony also provides for the appropriate choice of bride’s hairstyle. It can be soft curls or restrained styling. The main thing is that the style of the bride should be fully sustained.

The finishing touch of the bride’s look will be a vintage wedding bouquet. These are lovely, elegant flowers, skillfully and tastefully composed in a single composition. The main thing is that the bouquet recalls the atmosphere of the past. Therefore, elements of traditional decoration should be present in it.

The groom, dressed in vintage style, wears a vest or suspenders, a bow tie and a hat. Accessories will not be superfluous. For example, a watch on a chain perfectly complements the look of a man.

Guests’ dress code does not have to be necessarily stylized. But for bridesmaids it is worth choosing dresses of the same color with such vintage details as veils, hats, stockings, etc. The groom’s friends, without whom the wedding ceremony isn’t complete, should be dressed in the same costumes or at least have identical elements in their looks – suspenders, buttonholes, hats or something like that.

Vintage wedding venue

If you choose an outdoor event as the venue for your vintage wedding, you definitely will not lose. It is always something exquisite, special, comfortable. The venue for organizing the celebration can be arranged on the banks of a river, on a mountain hill or in the garden of a country house. But if you are worried that unpredictable weather will let you down at the most crucial moment, an estate, an old theater or a classic restaurant will be a great venue. Regardless of the option, the newlyweds will finally choose, the main thing is that the design contains vintage attributes. The decor of the hall can be radically different: alluring, bright and magnificent or unobtrusive, touching and modest. Choose what is closer to both of you.

Shabby books, old furniture, antique frames with old photographs, lace napkins, crystal dishes, satin bows on tableware, tall vases, delicate bouquets on tables will help create a suitable atmosphere for a vintage event. In a word, any things “from the past”. Miniature birds in cages, mirrors, artificial flowers, candlesticks with ordinary candles, brooches, statuettes of ancient times will perfectly fit into the vintage style. And even if you choose such an original option as a wedding in the Dominican Republic, then all these things will help you travel into the past.

Do not forget about the musical arrangement. It is important that it also be old. A gramophone, player or reel tape recorder will harmoniously complement the vintage-style decor. If you decide to order an orchestra, then select a suitable repertoire in advance.

As for the menu, here choose everything to your taste and financial capabilities. But the wedding cake must be designed in vintage style. Wide possibilities of confectioners will allow implementing this idea without any problem. A sweet masterpiece in soft colors, complemented by a variety of patterns, sugar bows and edible lace, will be the main decoration of the festive table.

Vintage wedding transport

If you have a wedding in the Dominican Republic, why not walk down the aisle on horseback. It is very beautiful and romantic. Also very vintage! But small cars in retro style will also suit. However, forget the idea of using usual chic limousines. Otherwise, you will break the wholevintage style of your celebration and seem completely tasteless.

Such an amazing atmosphere of a vintage wedding will take the whole celebration to those old times, to which you wanted to become closer at least for one but very  important and crucial day for every new family.
