Are you looking for something a bit old fashioned and retro? If so a Vintage look could be for you.
Whimsical, ultra-feminine and cute, the idea of this theme is to capture that old-fashioned, retro feel. The first thing to think about is basing your colours on vintage wedding colours. When considering vintage wedding colours, think of old bits of painted china where purples, pinks and blues combine. In the bouquet, roses are a classic, timeless flower that can be used to form the base, but instead of the vibrant reds and pinks, choose unusual colours such as lilac and deep rose pink. Such rich vintage wedding colours will add a depth and texture that exudes an old-worldly feel. For a summer wedding, sweet peas have a similar shade and feel and will look unusual in tables decorations.
This theme truly works best for an outdoor wedding – think cottage garden setting on a bright sunny day with blue skies above and the odd white cumulus cloud billowing by. Bridesmaids can be airy and summery in cotton and linen dresses or you can choose an elegant silk blouse with puffed sleeves and a pretty button back with a pleated silk skirt.
The key to this theme goes beyond vintage wedding colours – it’s about texture and design, too. For your reception, think mismatching teacups, plates and coloured glass champagne bowls instead of flutes. Don’t be afraid to accessorise and decorate with ribbons and silk roses. The rose pink stationery can do wonders to set the scene.
At The Little Wedding Company, we believe beauty is in the details, and a vintage theme is one that thrives on the little things.
