Real Simple recently featured pictures from a real wedding in New England that I simply fell in love with! The bride sported this outstanding retro-feeling vintage gown that she got from vintageous.com. The vintage chic gown was mainly white but featured a one-of-a-kind soft blue and green floral pattern as it flared out to the ankles, with just a hint of pastel pink ruffles peeking out from the bottom. The bride jazzed up her vintage look with a stunning bouquet of flowers in every color and type imaginable, making for a truly unique final look that merged classic designs with modern trends.
Subtle nods to vintage style can easily be incorporated into your big day. An old-fashioned skeleton key hanging from your bouquet add a touch of timeless class to your ensemble. Nothing’s quite as quaint as mason jars and burlap, so why not combine the two in drinking glasses that are perfect for everything from milk to margaritas?
When going vintage for your wedding, I think it is a great idea to commit to one or two concepts that can be found throughout your wedding plans. Go with vintage designs for your save the dates and wedding invitations as well! They will act as a perfect teaser for your guests as they anticipate your big day. Our Urban Vintage Boutique has incredible vintage designs. Embossed paper, metallic printing and lace details. It screams vintage chic.
