How to make a vintage wedding – top tips

If you’re a vintage-loving bride-to-be, why not work a little of what you love into your wedding reception? Wedding Magazine shared their top tips for holding a vintage-themed wedding celebration…
 
Use your imagination
 
Vintage doesn’t necessarily mean teacups and bunting – you can create rustic, glam or luxurious vintage looks by using crystal, glassware, silverware or piles of old books.
 
Embrace your inner child
 
Use items from your childhood for a nostalgic twist – for example, old retro sweets served usherette-style in wooden crates, or a chill-out area of the marquee, complete with vintage board games to entertain the masses post-dinner.
 
Prep your props
 
Use larger props such a sewing machines or suitcases to add interest to specific areas and create zones in your reception venue.
 
Keep it simple
 
Less is sometimes more. A simple candelabra draped with pearls can make a gorgeous table centre when surrounded with masses of petals.
 
Research!
 
If you’re looking to achieve an era-themed, wedding make sure you do your research well and theme ever last detail including the font in your stationery.
 
Let your theme do the talking
 
Let the props speak for themselves and use accent pieces with single stem blooms rather than tight, fussy floral arrangements.
