Vintage Details

Weddings are all about the details from the lighting to the place cards; the music selection to the appetizers. But sometimes the details can become fragmented when you’re trying to pull together so many different elements into one very short day. One way to avoid a big, disjointed wedding day is to stick with a specific theme and colors that all help add to the day instead of leaving guests wondering what kind of a wedding they had just been to…

These days, all things vintage seem to be on the forefront of high fashion and lifestyle choices with everything from clothes to homes to weddings. So today it’s all about the vintage details! We’re not talking an entire vintage reception (we aren’t suggesting a complete throwback), instead you can give your wedding the vintage feel by adding some simple (and some very budget friendly, do-it-yourself) accessories. Like what? It’s all about the little things when we talk details, so just a few suggestions in pictures… starting with some fun vintage save-the-dates and invitations, your engagement ring (yes that will be “at” the wedding too!), using old books as centerpieces and old suitcases for guests to drop off their gift envelopes or even to store your vintage place cards, or how about leaving your guests with these adorable macaroon favors in a very vintage “vase”… still not convinced? Trust me, you will be once you add these little details to the big day and tie all of your wedding decisions and decor together!

The Old Hollywood Wedding Way

In honor of the Oscars this weekend, what could be more fitting than a bridal throwback to the Old Hollywood wedding and all that comes with it: think glamour, charm, and Clark Gable.  When I think of the Old Hollywood wedding I think red lipstick, lace, feathers, lovely headpieces, and the roaring 20s.  Even today you can have a piece of old Hollywood in your wedding by just incorporating a few statement pieces like any of these – from a mid-century(esque) necklace, to a vintage inspired wedding bouquet, a classic veil, or finishing it all off with an exquisite dress.

Feeling like you are living in the past yet?
