One of the most popular wedding themes is vintage.   Vintage typically refers to a particular harvest or crop of wine, but can also mean pertaining to a high quality past time.  In this case, we mean the latter of the two.  Vintage wedding themes are taking the wedding industry by storm and they will be trending for years to come.  Considering that many of our favorite TV shows and movies have a vintage flair to it, we will continue to see weddings emulate those themes.  Premier Bride of Northeast Florida loves “vintage!”  We live in the South and we do vintage well.  Many of our reception venues in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas also cater to a vintage theme.  Let’s explore “vintage” on the First Coast.

Fashion

One of the first things to check off your list is a wedding gown, and designers have caught onto the vintage bandwagon.  There are tiers of lace on gowns, along with sleeves, and sweet pearl details.  Along with strings of pearls adorning bride’s necks, birdcages are making a comeback, as well as bridal caps.  Detailed bodices and backs also give dresses a vintage feel.  Gloves and lace boots are also making their way back onto the wedding scene.  The bridal salons in Jacksonville have you covered if you are looking for a “vintage wedding grown”

 

Flowers

With a vintage theme you have two really great options; a brooch bouquet or traditional flowers. You can indulge in a gorgeous brooch bouquet, which can be solely made up of vintage brooches from your grandmother, or from an antique store.  Or you can have a florist create vintage inspired bouquets and centerpieces to tie your theme together.  Vintage flower arrangements include a lot of greens.  There are also 3 main flowers that fit the era; roses, freesia and lisianthus.

 

Decor and Special Touches

You can be taken away in a vintage car, like a Rolls Royce, or swept away by carriage.  You might find yourself in a barn type wedding, adorned with chandeliers and mason jars all over.  Mason jars are extremely popular right now, and can be adorned with lace, or have pictures in them showing family.  Don’t be afraid to find some hat boxes to capture the vintage era you are going for in your wedding.  There are a lot of talented decor companies , rental companies and wedding planners on in the Jacksonville area that can make your vision a reality!
