You’ve probably heard the old rhyme, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”. Today, we’re putting the spotlight on “something old”. It’s not just about vintage anymore! With a sprinkle of creativity and a dash of sentimentality, we’re here to freshen up this tradition with some modern spins. Keep reading for some fresh ideas on the timeless tradition!
Vintage-Inspired Hair Accessories
Embrace the old-world charm with an antique brooch turned hair accessory. It’s chic, it’s timeless, and it’s perfect for your modern-day love story. If you are planning an elegant wedding, this is an even better idea!
A Family Heirloom
Get nostalgic and incorporate a family heirloom. A piece of your mom’s wedding dress sewn into yours, or your grandfather’s watch in your groom’s pocket can create a beautiful connection to your heritage. There are plenty of options to choose from, so get creative.
Spritz on your grandmother’s favorite perfume or the scent your partner wore on your first date. It’s a wonderfully aromatic way to keep the past close by on your special day.
Vintage Getaway Car
Turn heads with a classic car! A vintage Rolls-Royce or a retro Volkswagen Bus can add an unexpected old-world charm to your grand exit. Call around before the wedding to see what vintage cars you can find. Better yet, you might even know someone who has a vintage car they will let you borrow on the wedding day.
Print out old emails or texts exchanged between you and your partner. Bind them into a mini booklet and keep it in your pocket or bouquet. If you have handwritten love letters from them, that’s even better!
Old Photo Display
Create a photo display of your parents’ and grandparents’ weddings. It’s a touching tribute that will keep your guests entertained during cocktail hour. Even old photos of your family, not specifically limited to weddings, will be a sentimental touch that checks the “something old” box.
From Victorian lockets to Art Deco earrings, antique jewelry can make a bold statement and honor the past beautifully. Plus, this takes care of two things as it serves as something old while checking the wedding jewelry off your list.
