Vintage Wedding Inspiration

The beauty of having a vintage themed wedding is that it will never get old. Whether you’re going all out vintage or just looking for a touch of classic décor here and there, here’s how to create a truly gorgeous vintage wedding with #nofilter.

In terms of your colour palette, soft muted tones are a must for a vintage wedding. Think pretty pastels; lilac, dusky pink, duck egg blue, lemon, mint green and peach, as well as more neutral cream and ivory shades to break up the colours.

Delicate and dainty flowers such as sweet peas, ranunculus and roses work particularly well in these tones when coupled with the soft greens of eucalyptus and lambs ear.

It’s not just the flowers that can create the style and feel of the wedding, consider using props and accessories to accentuate the theme you are going for. Play around with mismatching pieces, vintage vessels, glassware and even Victorian birdcages to present the flowers as well as incorporating other accessories such as tea lights or candelabras for a vintage inspired look.

Don’t feel like you have to stick to small, scattered arrangements at your wedding, large flamboyant displays can still create vintage charm if you pick the right flowers. This stunning urn arrangement shows a mix of white delphinium, soft pink hydrangea, vintage roses including quicksand, amnesia, memory lane, secret garden and O’Hara with cream peonies, trailing ivy  and soft grey eucalyptus.

The ivy in this arrangement creates a wilder, vintage garden feel. Or why not go for vintage glamour with a more domed arrangement?

Remember, if you’re not set on a theme, don’t be afraid to piece together a few different ideas to really make your wedding venue and decoration your own for a day that you will remember for years to come.

Striking urn arrangements filled with Cloud-like hydrangeas in white and purple, mixed with peonies and purple and pink stock surrounded by an array of O’Hara, Sweet Avalanche and Secret Garden roses with a hint of eucalyptus, created the four main focal points of the room.
