What's Your Wedding Style? Part Three: Vintage

Posted by Brandi Kane on April 15, 2013


What's your Wedding Style?  Being able to answer this one question will help you shape your entire wedding from start to finish.

Classic and Traditional Weddings are the most Common.  In 2012, 64% of all weddings were in this category.  Though Classic weddings are definitely the most popular, Vintage Weddings are a choice made by many. 

Vintage Wedding Style Weddings usually star a Vintage Wedding Dress.  Older, delicate fabrics require special treatment and attention.  Out of all the wedding gown preparations, Wedding Dress Cleaning is of the upmost importance.  Bring your Vintage Gown to a Certified Wedding Gown Specialist like Champion Wedding Gown Specialists in Birmingham Alabama.

Here we will provide some style inspiration for your special day.


The Vintage Wedding Dress


Vintage gowns are generally white, though true vintage gowns that were not properly preserved may be off-white, candle light, or other shades of yellowed white.  Styling will depend on the era of the gown since Vintage is a term used loosely these days.  A gown from the early 1900s, for example, will look completely different from a 1980s gown.  Generally speaking, Vintage Wedding Dresses will be on the modest side, with lots of delicate lace and romantic styling.

 The Vintage Wedding Bouquet


The Vintage Wedding Bouquet consists of white, ivory, and pale pink flowers, usually roses formed in a traditional bouquet shape.  A spin on the Vintage Bouquet is using vintage brooches in place of flowers.

The Vintage Wedding Cake


The Vintage Wedding Cake is really up to the individual.  As no one uses a truly vintage cake... which would be pretty gross... Vintage Cakes are really Modern cakes with a vintage twist.  This example shows vintage lace as a pattern on a wedding cake.

The Vintage Centerpiece

Classic Centerpiece

Simple white flowers in a clear container are a Classic Centerpiece for your reception tables.  For a variation, you can use different colored containers, mason jars, old glass bottles or colored flowers.

Vintage Wedding Invitations

The Vintage Invitation is a high quality cardstock card with matching envelope.  Cream colored or tea dyed cardstock can really enhance the vintage feel.  It is printed with a decorative yet formal script.  Think of old style general store inspired or victorian,

The Vintage Wedding Style is a popular choice for a reason.  It's timeless, unique, and creates a special day sure to be remembered.
