Trends come and go, but some themes seem to maintain their popularity regardless of the fads of fashion. When it comes to weddings, vintage is an enduring motif; perhaps because although always nostalgia and romantic, vintage weddings are open to wide interpretation and expression.
While some people are always looking for the newest, next big thing; many brides look to the past for this most special of occasions. A vintage wedding evokes a sense of legacy and an homage to those who walked before us. And they are truly beautiful as well.
The most obvious elements of a vintage wedding day are the dress and the flowers. A traditional wedding veil made of old lace is an elegant touch; while jewelry passed down through generations is not only visually stunning, it holds a special place in the bride and groom’s heart. Whether a silver brooch on a sweetheart dress or a string of pearls draped over the wedding bouquet; these sentimental touches are personal and touching, exactly as it should be on a wedding day.
You can choose an older venue for the ceremony and reception to surround guests in history. However, any venue can be transformed into a vintage location with the right choice of accents and floral arrangements. Utilizing vintage glassware, lighting elements and candles go a long way to transforming the mood.
