Planning a wedding in different themes has become a trend now a day. One of the most romantic and stylish ways to capture a wedding ceremony is, using vintage theme ideas. This theme is fully inspired by the bygone era. The ideas have been taken from the 20’s era, which appears wonderful and classic.
The word itself creates nostalgia for artful and luxurious things. A vintage-inspired wedding can create dramatic and appealing results. Here I’m sharing skillful ideas to plan a vintage wedding:
‘Save the date’ note
Save the date note ideas are the first step towards the vintage theme, to let your guests know about it. The note should be written in an old letter pattern and stationery must be brownish and rough.
Original vintage stamps should stick on the cards to give it a perfect vintage concept.
Vintage bridal wear
In the 20’s era, brides used to wear T length gown, veils trailing down to the floor. Champagne color dresses and red lipsticks are the hottest fashion trends in bridal wear.
A vintage bouquet includes different hues of fresh and wildflowers. Tied up with vintage apparel and laces.
Accessories and makeup
Add exquisite and artistic pieces of jewelry and accessories like lacy tiera, a pillbox hat, headpiece cloche, etc. to add original vintage bridal look. Vintage bridal makeup is incomplete without red lipstick pout, thin eyebrows, stylish eyeliner, etc.
Choose a soft color for simple gowns with antique laces to compile it with a vintage theme.
Vintage hairstyles are followed with 40’s wavy pattern hairs adorn with headpieces and flowers for the bridesmaids, give your wedding a more old look. Gelled hairs for grooms are always looking stylish and classy.
