We love vintage xXx
If like me you adore the vintage look that is simply beautiful and perfect inspiration for a wedding theme I know you’ll just love this stunning collection of vintage inspired wedding dressed by “The Vintage Wedding Dress Company”.
The collection is so pretty and uses simple modern designs with a touch of vintage. The dress I love is this simple cowl backed dress, the lace detail adds the vintage romantic touch to the look, and the simple satin sash adds another element that lifts the whole piece. Blimey, I do sound like I know what I’m talking about.
Taking the dress as inspiration you can create a stunning reception incorporating new and old to produce a vintage lace inspired wedding theme. First thinking about fabrics, the lace and satin are both wonderful textures and these should be used in the design. Think about vintage looking lace table cloths or yes I’m going to say it doilies! Combine these with satin sashes around chairs or perhaps just a simple band of satin ribbon around your napkins. Think layers, it helps to add texture and adds to the vintage feel, don’t over do it though, sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.
If you want to re-create this type of look, think ahead and keeps your eyes open at flee markets and bootsales to pick up interesting laces and vintage cake stands. Part of the charm of a whimsy vintage lace wedding theme is that your reception is like a treasure trove of found goodies, like eye candy to your guests, each table unique and interesting. I found a lovelly example on pinterest.
When you have a collection of pretty vases, cake stands and vintage looking lace table cloths or runners, old hat boxes, vintage looking picture frames, the fun can start. remember to add height and interest, perhaps place a vase on top of some old vintage looking books tied with satin ribbon, or place a pretty vase filled with fresh flowers on top of your cake stands. Layer up your items up to create interest, but not to high so your guests can’t talk to each other. Have fun x
