We’ve had a ton of requests from brides who want to customize their wedding video theme to match their theme of their wedding. Some sport a bohemian theme, some intend to wow everyone with a Disney princesses or fairyland theme, and others prefer to either go with vintage wedding ideas and accents. Take a look at these 12 unique ways to incorporate vintage wedding ideas into your big day!
1. Vintage Wedding Dress
The dress of the bride must be one of the highlighted items that everyone watches out for in any wedding. The bride has to look the most beautiful in her most special day. A vintage dress speaks of class and elegance. The gown can be designed to be conservative while still showing some depth of skin at the back.
2. Vintage Bride Shoes
Similar to the wedding dress, the bride’s shoes must be always a crowd-pleaser. Drawing attention to the guests, the shoes will be at the forefront when the bride walks down the runway to meet her groom at the altar. Vintage shoes with laces are worn in excellent taste and the style should not be causing the feet to ache.
3. Vintage Dining Tables
There are lots of ways on how to create a vintage-inspired dining table. In the reception area, the dining tables are fitted with table cloths with several pattern matches. All these materials should contribute to a consistent feel of retro. You can also include a pretty vintage cake stand at the table.
