As vintage weddings continue to increase in popularity, we take a closer look at the vintage wedding trends for the year ahead. From getting closer to nature to going all out when it comes to glamour, vintage weddings are about to get bigger and more beautiful than ever before.
So organise your wedding by getting everything together like transport, dresses and food and your own your way. Book yourself a Dorset Coach Hire company at sites like turnerscoaches.co.uk to get you to the church with your family and exchange rings to your vintage vows.
The rustic vintage wedding theme has not only become more popular, but each year it becomes more stylised and nature-focussed. In fact, anything green is good this year, and the wilder the better. We’ll see couples moving away from perfectly landscaped settings to more rural, rustic and natural venues such as forests, farms or wild unkempt gardens. As with any vintage wedding, the dress choice for a rustic vintage theme is normally lace – often in cream or off-white.
Rather than going down the bohemian rustic route, many couples will be going headlong into hedonism for a night of decadence, 1920s style. Forget about austerity, as couples in 2019 want to surround themselves with the chic elegance of an era that gave birth to Art Deco and wild parties.
Décor-wise, plenty of gold and silver are in order, and again a lace dress would work beautifully, but with the straight lines, shorter hair styles, pearl jewellery and smoky eyes that are synonymous with the era. Read top blogs to get inspired by similar glamorous vintage weddings.
A 1940s-style tea-party wedding is a trend that’s really making its mark this year. Head to charity shops to buy as much mismatched china crockery as you can, and invite guests to wear delightful 40s-style dresses and suits. For the bride, why not go for a starlet style with bright red lips and a tight dress? Try to book a big brass band or a music-hall singer to really get the party started. Be careful not to overdo it, however, as getting a vintage wedding right is all about balance and avoiding the clichés.
Vintage weddings are not going away, as we continue to look back to simpler times as an antidote to modern life. Whether you go for a 20th-century theme or for a rustic vintage option with lots of natural décor, a vintage wedding is one that no one forgets.
