Vintage weddings are all the rage right now and for a great reason. They accent nature in the most beautiful way – including gorgeous jewel tones to muted pastels. Add a few horses in the distance, have an outdoor ceremony and reception, wear a beautiful lace wedding gown and throw on custom silk bridesmaids dresses by Olive Style.
Incorporating vintage touches into your wedding is not a stressful process either – with these six simple ideas your dreams will come true!
1. Less will always be more when it comes to a vintage wedding. There is no need to have an aisle runner when you are getting married outside – if you do want one, opt for flower petals!
2. Natural everything – Utilize jute and burlap to create table runners, wrap your bouquets and boutonnieres, create chair signs and hang wreaths for the front doors of the church.
3. Southern charm – Monograms on any and everything is the way to go! Put them on the cake, embroider them on the Olive Style sashes on each bridesmaids dress, add them to your veil and of course, over-sized men's button-ups for each bridesmaid to get ready in the morning of!
4. Flowers flowers everywhere – Your bouquet doesn't necessarily have to be tamed! Use wildflowers, garden roses and dusty miller.
5. Seating for all – From wooden church pews to mix-n-match dining chairs in a field scream vintage ceremony and reception. Create romantic, plush lounge areas for your guest with over-sized velvet sofas and chairs ... the vintage part – it's all outdoors!
