There are so many beautiful vintage ideas on the market today that I just had to share some with you. We are always thinking about and listening to our brides around here, and we know (because you’ve told us) that you love reading about all kinds of ideas. So today we’re going to visit vintage again, because I’ve run across a treasure trove of really pretty pictures.
Filligree and lace and pearls and oh so especially special, adding a touch of vintage to your wedding or even your bridesmaids luncheon an elegant event. Just for fun for your bridesmaid’s luncheon, have everyone wear gloves – just like the old days! You’ll be surprised how “aristocratic” everyone feels (even if they think it’s a bit silly in the beginning)! Remember to list “pearls and white gloves” on the invitation, and I guarantee everyone will be a bit perplexed, but always game for change! Make sure placesettings include all the knives and forks and china plates, and only and always white linen napkins.
An elegant favor, center-plate, adds the finishing touch!
And oh are you going to LOVE these dresses. There’s a site called TheFrock.com, and they have a bridal section that will simply make you drool! Here are some of the selections just to whet your vintage apetite!
Burnished golds, bronzes and understated, rich tones will give your guests a handsome, 1920’s-feel welcome at the reception. I love the use of the brown silk tablecloth.
Vintage bubbly anyone?
OK, more dresses – these are SO yummy!
When you start studying vintage wedding pictures, you’ll see that the bouquets were very elaborate (and very large). Take a look at a few here:
I believe they called them “cascading” bouquets and roses and stephanotis were the flowers of choice. Here’s a modern version of the cascade bouquet. I’m absolutely in love with the soft colors and textures!
Alright, I’m going to throw in one more round of these gorgeous dresses from TheFrock.com, and then I’ll call it a day. I really hope you enjoy joining me in my little research projects, because I sure do enjoy showing them to you!
