More and more couples are now opting for themed weddings, adding a quirky twist to the traditional ceremony of marriage. One of the most popular themes for 2014 is vintage- a word that can have many different meanings. These are some of our favourite vintage wedding themes to plan your special day around.
The 1950’s is one of the most popular eras for wedding themes, because there’s simply so much that can be done with it. From glamorous makeup and cocktail dresses to rock and roll tunes- this a theme with pure fun potential. You can go for a Grease theme with poodle skirts, leather jackets and ponytails all round, or you can just give a nod to the theme with a gown that’s cinched in at the waist with a full skirt and chic vintage decorations.
Whatever you do, make sure you get a classic vintage convertible to ride away into the sunset after it’s all over.
The 1920’s theme is more popular than ever after the release of The Great Gatsby, with tons of couples donning flapper headbands and pearls for an Art Deco feel. There are some beautiful 1920’s wedding dresses out there, too, and you don’t have to go genuine vintage to get the look. Think lace sleeves, faux fur and bobbed hair and you’re on to a winner. Ask your guests to join in on the fun and come in their own 1920’s inspired styles.
1960’s Flower Power
The more extreme end of the bohemian theme trend is to go full hippie with a flower power theme. Wedding dresses should be flowing and loose, hair should be free and opt for an outdoor venue. Give flowers out to all the guests and encourage a chilled out, relaxed atmosphere. Serve up food family-style with plenty of fresh fruit and veggies and get the band playing all your favourite sixties tunes.
