Vintage soirees

There are so many possibilities when it comes to creating a vintage-themed wedding. The first thing to do is lock in your colour scheme, and, to stay true to vintage, start working from a pastel colour palette – think soft pinks, creams, whites and silvers.


The bride and groom may want to bring a relaxed and comforting feel to their big day by opting for a rustic reception, or pursue an outside wedding affair with a vineyard or garden wedding. The venue that you choose will be the basis of your set up and should reflect your vintage-inspired theme.

For your gown, relish the charm and elegance of days gone by with a gorgeous lace number or a delicate dress with intricate beading. Turn to boutique vintage shop Circa Vintage Clothing for their fabulous range of pre-worn gowns. Also, check out Karen Willis Holmes for her stunning gowns adorned with lace and beading.

To bring your vintage décor to life, opt for delicate bone china with floral patterns, cute cups and saucers and tarnished silverware. Also, hanging up pretty bunting around the room will really create a vintage atmosphere. For your sweet treats, you can’t go past the delicious sugary cupcake or the on-trend macaroon. Sweet treats atop crystal cake stands and elegant tablecloths will do well accompanied with their crystal glassware and dainty, floral cups and saucers. Take a look at the incredible sweets on offer at dessert connoisseurs, Cake Ink. Silver tea service, such as the silver, polished set from A Vintage Affair, is a very popular way to present delicious finger foods and pastries.

Table settings are equally important for creating a welcoming atmosphere. A delicious spread can be enhanced with a bright splash of colour in vintage glass vases. Flowers will tie your whole soiree together, so for a vintage-themed wedding, you will want plenty of soft blooms decorating the space. Check out Casa Verde for their stunning range of flowers in multiple vintage colour palettes.
