Vintage touches to add to your wedding day

Vintage touches to add to your wedding day

There is a unique sense of nostalgia and class connected to a vintage look. It allows us to revel in the past and bring to light the unique aspects of times come and gone that we love.

A big upside of vintage wedding touches is that they are very affordable and appear far more expensive than they actually are. If you know where to look, you can steal yourself vintage items to add a splash of old-world glamour to your day without breaking the bank.

Plates and other crockery items can wrack up a huge bill. Scooping up some cute bargain items from your local vintage store can make a significant financial difference.

Finding matching items may be a bit of a challenge but a miss-matched collection of plates or glasses of a similar style ensure originality and add a touch of the unusual to your wedding tables.

A wedding dress can set you back a few bucks for sure, but a vintage upcycled option can save you thousands.

Opting for a vintage ensemble not only ensures that your dress will be the only of its kind but also allows you to add your own touch to the dress with inspiration from its class style.

Plus, you’ll be saving enough money to put a little extra towards your honeymoon.

Vintage props

✨Unique prop collection✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you looking for finishing touches that will make your wedding stand apart from others? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As part of my rebrand I’ve been having a clear out! There are so many fantastic suppliers out there with a huge range of decor, that it seemed silly to try and offer you ‘more of the same’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Therefore I have decided to streamline, and make my collection more considered in terms of the aesthetic I’ll be offering. There will still be variety, but the items I’m keeping are the unique finishing touches that I believe will add originality and personality to your wedding or event. Pieces with history; some that have been lovingly made by hand, vintage pieces sourced from around the world and repurposed objects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There will also be a staple range of multifunctional items staying, but all of them will be pieces that can be styled in different ways to help you create pockets of interest and excitement around your venue + display key decorative aspects. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My bespoke design and create services will perfectly compliment the idea of styling the props in my collection to help tell your own personal love story 🤍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Or you will be able to ‘dry hire’ for a more DIY approach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pink suitcase anyone?! 💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wedding #somersetweddinghire #weddingtrend #uniqueprop #uniqueprophire #alternativewedding #engaged #rusticwedding #bohowedding #bohoweddingsomerset #pinkwedding #stylemepretty #weddinginspo #pinksuitcase #somersetwedding #weddingdecor #somersetprophire #weddingideas #diywedding #gettingmarried #ihavethisthingwithpink #weddingstylist #prophire #vintagewedding #weddingdetails #2021weddingtrend #weddingwednesday #somersetweddinginspo #coolwedding #bohoismyjam

From renting to buying to using something from your own collection, props bring a vintage-inspired wedding together.

The great thing about vintage props is there are a huge variety to choose from, while still ensuring a high level or originality.

Hang lace curtains, drape old timey crochet items and stack vintage suitcases, the options are endless.

Go classic with your flower choices

Draw on the inspiration of yesteryear and style your flower arrangements with a touch of vintage flare.

Neutral tones, delicate buds and dainty details radiate vintage, so be sure to play up your theme in your flower arrangements as well.

Vintage sparkle

Rings don’t have to be the latest fashion or a huge chunk of a diamond. For grooms and brides who prefer the simpler things in life and are looking to honour their love for vintage style, a re-purchased set of rings is a great option.

While you won’t be spending as much as you would on a brand new diamond ring, vintage jewellery is in no way a cheap option.

Some unique antique pieces can set you back a hefty sum but there is also the option to go for new age vintage-inspired pieces as well.

Wherever you buy your pieces, make sure you trust your seller and you’re getting the piece you’re paying for.

Vintage beauty

The bride can tie the whole theme together with a little vintage beauty. Vintage hairstyles have a flawless and classic look that will age well in your wedding pictures for years to come.

Add a vintage makeup look and beauty details that reference your favourite years gone by and you’re all set.

The cake

The ultimate vintage vibe can be invoked with a classic yet stunning cake.

From light layers dusted with cane sugar to flower topped sponge delights, add your personal touch to your cake with a vintage twist to bring the whole theme together.
