Vintage Inspired Affairs!

 


A wedding rich with vintage and antique details is a popular choice for those tying the knot in the coming year. From desserts to place cards, it is easy to integrate vintage accents throughout your entire wedding.

Favors and favor packaging offer a great way to encapsulate the vintage feel you are going for. Our Whoopie Pie Mix Favors not only treat guests to an opportunity to enjoy the fun 1950's sweet but also are presented in a charming cotton muslin with a vintage-inspired print.

Antique keys and bird cages will help decorate the reception and serve as lovely center pieces and escort cards.

A themed engagement shoot is an excellent way to introduce this sweeping theme of vintage-chic and vintage Bridal jewelry will help carry the theme throughout (plus, it can double as your "something old"!)

Visit a library and look through old books or almanacs for design inspiration if you plan on having custom artwork done for your invitations, table numbers, etc. Many museums now archive old papers and documents on Flickr or other photo sharing sites. Use these to highlight what design elements you love the most and be sure to share those preferences with the designer, especially if they're working on your custom monogram.

The best vintage-inspired wedding have a streamlined look. What iconic styles and from what era do you love the most? 1920's? 1950's? Select a general aesthetic and choose larger and "focal point" objects that are in keeping with that general style.
