Use vintage accessories for your wedding table plan

Think creatively about wedding decorations: visit antique and junk stores, collect music papers and old postcards to create your wedding table plan. Visit wedding blogs to see examples of suitcases, bicycles and window frames used as a backdrop for gorgeous seating plans!

Wildflowers make lovely vintage bridal bouquets

For summer weddings think about creating a rustic DIY wildflower bouquet. Cornflowers, poppies and sunflowers give a real splash of colour, and tied with a bunch of lace ribbons they look fantastic, especially for bohemian vintage brides.

Hire a wedding calligrapher

Choose calligraphy for your place settings, or begin your wedding experience in beautiful style by having a calligrapher scribe your invites and envelopes for you! Calligraphers will even create bespoke maps for your venue – in a creative and vintage style.

Have vintage wedding music

If you’re having a vintage wedding leave your iPod at home and hire a band: go with the music you love and choose a harpist, acoustic rock band or folk singer to make your vintage wedding sound as good as it looks!

Grooms – get informal, vintage style!

Vintage is a cool theme for guys as well – research the era your vintage wedding is inspired by and you’ll find some great ideas for your outfit and styling. Suits are the norm, but be creative with the style and shop thrift stores to find classic outfits to complement your bride’s vintage style

Choose timeless wedding photography

Great quality wedding photography is a must. It’s how you’ll remember your day forever. Choose carefully: vintage processing of images is popular but you should look for a photographer who’ll create images that won’t date.

Create, craft and enjoy vintage!

Vintage inspired weddings are all about crafts and DIY. Get the girls together or have fun with your hubby to be creating gorgeous invites, bunting, wishing trees and place settings. Shopping quaint little antique stores for brooches and vases will be a great adventure to share!
