Few things are as breathtaking and romantic as vintage weddings, complete with lace wedding invitations and classy bridal gowns. There is something about the refinement and sophistication of bygone eras that is irresistibly charming. Infuse some of that charm into your wedding day by following these four simple tips for planning the perfect vintage wedding.
Your wedding invitations should give guests a taste of what they can expect at your actual wedding celebration. Nothing says “vintage” more effectively than lace, so try selecting lace wedding invitations or choosing a 1950’s-inspired newspaper font for your invitations.
Your wedding dress should be the epitome of vintage charm. It should look antique but fresh and clean. As we stated above, nothing is more vintage than lace, so try to find a dress that tastefully incorporates lace either throughout the entire dress or as accents. Include old-fashioned hair pins bedecked with pearls or a headband-style veil embellished with white fabric flowers or jewels.
Music has an inviting way of setting almost any mood you want to achieve. Invite a live brass band to come play classy tunes from a long-gone era at your wedding to make the vintage theme as authentic as possible. Add a touch of personalization and fun by having song request cards available for your guests to use. Have the band stand or sit away from the main celebration so your guests can still engage in conversation. If you plan on having a dance party after the celebration, invite a DJ to attend and play some modern, upbeat music when the after-wedding party starts.
Crystal chandeliers, sconces, tea lights and string lights can add a touch of sophistication and ambiance to your wedding. Candles are great for setting the mood, but they may not be allowed by your venue, so check with management first. You may be able to use realistic artificial candles if real candles are considered a safety hazard.
"I am so happy with these invitations! They are simple, yet beautiful and classy. I wanted to put all the information (reception and all) on one card, and I needed to make a second set in another language. The designer followed my instructions perfectly and made great suggestions to fit the text on the page. They turned out even better than expected. The paper quality (I used the shimmer paper) was excellent. I would recommend the shimmer paper. I can't say enough about the service as well. The proofs were done so quickly, the people on the phone were amazing and friendly and the package was delivered days ahead of time. The only hiccup I had was that they were unable to tell me what the customs/duties would be so I had to just keep my fingers crossed. In the end, it wasn't so expensive (about $60 for Canada). I would recommend Wedding Paper Divas to any bride-to-be!"
"I used these for my wedding invitations and everyone who received them RAVED! They are nice and thick and printed beautifully. DO NOT forget to include the reception information on your invite like I did! I had the church information but failed to include location and start time for the cocktail hour! It simply says "reception to follow." I also took these incites and glued them into a pocket fold that was gold. I put stickers with our initials on them to seal the pocket fold. Looked AMAZING"
"These invites were perfect for our Late August rustic themed wedding. Designing was simple and they arrived earlier than expected! Terrific experience!"
"We were very pleased with the beautiful wedding invitations we ordered. We upgraded to a pearlized paper to add a rich sheen and ordered gold envelopes to match. We were very surprised at how quickly the order was processed and delivered, less than 2 weeks!"
"These invitation definitely exceeded my expectations! I love WeddingPaperDivas new thermography collection; great quality! The staff and designers went out of their way to personalize my wedding invitations and made sure that what I envisioned is exactly what I received! I was able to customize wording/fonts/colors and formatting."
