Fabulous Friday: Vintage Weddings

Nuptials are becoming more and more romantic with frills and lace and tea stained doilies. From Grandma’s vintage Tiffany comb to handmade favors Bride’s are also choosing to take a very personal approach to their vintage weddings.  So if you haven’t yet guessed it this weeks Fabulous Friday post is oozing with vintage inspired goodness.  We have inspirations from cakes and flowers to favors and invitations and everything in between.  I hope you enjoy this weeks Fabulous Friday: Vintage Weddings post.

Let’s start your weekend off with something sweet. These beautifully frilly cakes are amazing.  They are so romantic with the fondant lace and sugar flowers!  Or instead of going with one large cake opt for a smaller one and then do mini sweet treats for your guest. Homemade pies and petit fours are always yummy.

Handmade favors are a must for anything vintage. From Aunt Martha’s homemade jelly to paper cones filled with your favorite childhood cookie all add a personal touch to your big day. Guest will appreciate the thoughtfulness and effort you put into it.

It’s all about the little details that will keep them talking about your big for months to come.

Use your family tea service to serve coffee or to add a little sparkle to the tablescape.  Or heirloom china from you and your groom’s family for the place settings. Complete the look with lush flowers and toss in some burlap and fabric flowers for some interest and texture. (You know I couldn’t write a post without mentioning burlap)

 Speaking of flowers, don’t stick with a plain jane bouquet for your special day.  Pump up the glam factor with a brooch bouquet filled with all kinds of treasures from your family and flea market finds. Want a little less sparkle and a lot more romance?  Combine fresh and fabric flowers for a unique look. The more frayed the flowers are the better. Both make great keepsakes.

Let’s not forget about the Belle of the Ball, the beautiful Bride. Opt for a romantic fascinator instead of a veil and use a jeweled clutch to tuck your lipstick in.  The day is about the two of you so take advantage of the opportunity and go all out. It’s not everyday that you get to get this dolled up.

And last but certainly not least are some amazing vintage inspired invitations. Aged papers and romantic fonts really set the tone for your vintage wedding. I like to think of invitations as a preview to your big day.  They let the guest know what to expect and get them excited for what’s to come.

I hope you found lots of vintage inspirations for your big day. See you next week!
