How To Make the Most of Vintage Charm in Your Wedding Venue

How To Make the Most of Vintage Charm in Your Wedding Venue

If you’re getting married at The Park Savoy or another elegant wedding venue that has a distinct vintage quality to it, the options are truly unlimited in terms of the type of wedding you want to have. However, often a venue and theme go hand in hand and if you know that you want your wedding to have a chic classic vibe to it that will also make it look timeless, there a number of things you can do, both the venue and your own planning, to enhance the vintage charm and create a truly transportive wedding.

Wear a Family Wedding Dress and More

While there’s plenty to take into consideration with the venue, the first step to having an elegant vintage wedding is the clothes. If you’re lucky enough to be the same size as your mother, grandmother, or another family member, then consider donning one of their wedding dresses that has a distinct “yesteryear” quality to it while also looking chic.

And why stop at the bride? Have your groom and wedding parties raid their family closets and visit a few suggested vintage clothing shops to pick out the perfect wedding clothes.

Get Creative With the Seating

If you’re getting married at an outdoor/indoor venue, consider asking the venue for the use of any vintage chairs they may have or bring in your own love seats from the 60s and rockers from the 40s to create a varied yet distinctly old-school vibe that’s also comfortable for sitting.

Vintage Decorations

When it comes to the decorations, your best bet is to work with the venue to utilize any antique items they might have that you can use, such as a vintage mirror on which you can draw, in erasable marker, the name of your wedding to greet your guests.

Elsewhere, consider using vintage bunt lace to hang around the wedding area to further transport your guests to another time. And if there are any old picture frames sitting around either the venue, your parent’s home, or at an antique store, use them to display your wedding schedule in a truly unique and elegant manner.

Classic Center Pieces and Table Cloth

Lastly, when it comes to your reception, get inventive with the center piece, perhaps using old vases with classic floral bouquets, such as roses or tulips. And for your dining tables, see if you can work with the venue to either bring in your own classic table cloths or if they have some that will work with your vintage vibe.

Ultimately, creating an elegant classic wedding is all about working with your venue to amplify the vintage charm it already has and bringing in any elements you need to heighten that vintage quality.
