How to Infuse Your Wedding with Vintage Romance


A vintage romance wedding is one of the most unique atmospheres that you can establish for your special day. It embodies passion while featuring a call back in time for your guests that creates a night no one will forget. What’s great about vintage romance weddings is that even simple elements can transform your wedding to bring your theme to fruition. 

 

Attire 

Nothing says vintage romance wedding like a bride in a dazzling vintage wedding dress. Think geometric metallic embellishments, subtle sequins, and opalescent pearls meets Old Hollywood. Take it to the next level with a vintage lace headdress or stunning hair comb through your elegant up do. 

 

Floral Arrangements 

Flowers are another great way to inject vintage romance into your wedding. Roses and peonies are classic for a wedding bouquet, and look stunning when accentuated with pearls, antique brooches, or heirloom jewelry. 

 

Decorations 

Simple decorative aspects throughout the ceremony and reception can really make a difference. If you are considering an outdoor wedding, create a “family tree” with old family wedding photos on it. Vintage lanterns surrounded by roses and hydrangeas are also great for lining the aisle. Another vintage element is classic pillars and earns holding romantic assortments of flowers mixed with the ever-popular baby’s breath. If you really want to make a statement, you can even have your vows written in calligraphy onto your vintage aisle runner. 

 

Place Cards & Guest Book 

Even the smallest details can help create a vintage romance atmosphere for your wedding. For place cards, attach cards to antique keys. You can even adorn them with some fringe to really take your guests back in time. The guest book is another element that can add a vintage feel. Have your guests type their well wishes to you on a retro typewriter. If that isn’t an option, you could also have them sign the guest book by good old-fashioned quill and ink. 

 

Center Pieces 

When dressing up your tables, centerpieces are great for making a statement. Try a stack of leather-bound books, topped with a framed quote from a classic literary author on each table. You could also go for a simpler option by placing a rose floral mix in antique gold vases. Another vintage centerpiece option is to pair mini floral arrangements with crystal glasses, antique pearls and lace table cloths. A nice added touch that can really take your guests back to the romantic 1920’s, is utilizing elegant antique china placed on gold chargers. 

 

Cake 

To dress your cake up and inject some vintage romance into your wedding, decorate it with pearls, flowers, and ruffles. Another option is adding fabric roses mix-matched with jewels throughout the tiered cake.
