You know what they say: You can never go wrong with a classic. Whether you’re an antique-shopping, bespoke lover or always on the hunt for what’s new and hot, vintage weddings deliver a timeless and elegant atmosphere that, like your love, will never go out of style. Find out how you can make vintage style your own on your big day with these classic tips:
Dress the Part
Nothing says vintage glamour more than a white lace wedding dress and classic Juliet headpiece. Make the perfect couple and deck your groom in a tweed three-piece suit or a waistcoat and pants with suspenders.
Finish the Rhyme
Everyone knows you need something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue—but your classic wedding isn’t complete without “a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
Have a Statement Bouquet
Add a vintage flair to your rose and peony bouquet with an heirloom brooch or cameo, pearls, and cascading greenery.
Make Your Ring Bearer a Newsie
A simple newsboy cap can transform this essential ceremony participant into an old-fashioned gentleman.
Arrive—and Say Goodbye—in Style
Skip the traditional stretch limo and instead make your debut and exit in a 1920’s style retro car.
Punch Up Your Guestbook
Instead of the regular guestbook, feature a vintage typewriter for your guests to share their well wishes and advice.
Make Classic Pieces of Literature into Centerpieces
Stack leather-bound versions of classic works of literature on each table instead of flowers. Rather than table numbers, assign each the name of the author featured at the table so your guests can say they’re seated at the Hemingway or Austen table, not just table six.
Go old school with antique picture frames filled with black and white pictures. In addition to filtered pictures of the happy couple and friends and family, this is also a great way to showcase older relatives and ancestors who can’t be there for your big day.
Now that you know how you can have a vintage wedding that will stand the test of time, it’s time to pick the perfect venue. Contact the experts at Crest Hollow Country Club and start planning today.
