Vintage Wedding Ideas for your day
Centrepieces & Chair Decor
The best way to capture a vintage theme at your wedding reception is with a timeless and stylish table centrepiece.
These could be birdcages filled with tea lights, candelabras wrapped in ivory, teapots or jugs filled with flowers.
Or are you’re looking to get that quirkier and more personalised look?
You could select a collection of your favourite books and stack them on each table, dressing them with tea lights and flowers.
A simple yet effective way of decorating your luxury wedding venue is with pretty vintage chair decorations.
Chair sashes either floral patterned, pastel coloured or hessian are the best for achieving a shabby chic look!
Many venues and company’s supply and fit your sashes to make sure your finishing touches are perfect.
Source retro patterned teacups online, in charity shops or specialised vintage shops.
Once you start looking, you’ll find they’re quite easy to get hold of! These are the perfect accessory when holding an afternoon tea party for your reception.
But…who says teacups are only for drinking out of?
Fill them with flowers and scatter over your venue to add detail to every corner of your venue.
If you’re fully committing to your vintage theme, bunting is a must!
It not only brings colour to your venue, it is also an inexpensive decoration to add.
Whether you select some traditional Great Britain flag bunting or some subtle pastel colours, they won’t go unmissed.
Fairy Lights & Lanterns
The elegant finishing touch that can set your ambience for the evening!
String them above the tables and dance floor in your marquee or place them outside in the trees for that extra detail.
Lanterns provide an eye-catching canopy for your guests when both eating and dancing!
This is the perfect way to transform the marquee as it adds colour and personality. For that retro theme, pastel coloured or lace lanterns are brilliant selections.
Ice Cream Trike
A fun addition to your vintage wedding is a retro-styled ice cream cart. I mean, who can say no to ice cream! Especially on those scorching summer days.
And if you’ve got children coming… need I say more!
But… if ice cream is not your thing, don’t worry! You could find a sweet cart bursting with your favourites.
