Out with the new and in with the old. No, it’s not a typo – it’s the theme of your vintage wedding. Whether it’s a love of nostalgia or a flare for romance that’s got you thinking of going back in time, a vintage theme can be carried out from start to finish. Consignment shops, antique stores and estate sales make for the perfect hunting grounds for décor and ceremony elements. They key is going in with a plan and the will to barter.

Invitations
Pink, cream, feminine and lace make for the ideal blend of characteristics for your invitations.

Ceremony
A lace gown or classic hairstyle isn’t the only way to put vintage on display for your bridal party. Switch up the groomsmen’s boutonnieres with military medals or skeleton keys.

Estate sales make it easy to stock up on dish sets from days gone by. No need to buy matching sets, the beauty lies in the variety.

Baby’s breath can also make for a vintage glam look when placed atop a fixture like a stack of old suitcases.

Old doors and shutters – or even a wooden palate – can display family photos or place cards. Another antique shop (or discarded builder’s materials) find!
