Vintage Wedding Trend

Vintage inspired weddings are a growing trend. Wedding magazines and blogs have popularized this trend. However, vintage inspired photo shoots can also be seen in fashion and home decor magazines. There are those that will rather there be an end to the vintage wedding trend and prefer a more modern wedding style. However, I think that the vintage style can provide couples with an opportunity to connect with the things that they love and pieces of their ancestry. It can allow for them to incorporate family heirlooms and create a sense of history. For many couples, it is also reflective of their desire to have a more eco conscious approach to their celebration by reusing and repurposing items.

There are many ways that you can incorporate vintage touches into your wedding. If brought together well, it can create a unique and stylish celebration that does not look like a "garage sale." With some creativity and thinking outside the box, you may be surprised with the results. You can decide to have a little or a lot, whatever your preference is it will help to have an idea of how you will like your day to look and feel.

If you are thinking of exploring this style for your big day, there are lots of options and resources that you can explore. You do not have to empty the contents of your grandmother's house, but you can ask family and friends to help you gather enough pieces for your wedding. If you love vintage pieces and think that you will reuse the pieces, you can invest in your own collection. Renting vintage furniture, tableware and other decorations is also possible, and there are vendors available that provide vintage rental services.

Here are just a few of the items that you can consider renting for your wedding:
  • Vintage Books
  • Furniture
  • Pews
  • Mason Jars
  • Mirrors
  • Chalk Boards
  • Milk Vases
  • Glassware
  • Mismatched China
  • Suite Cases
  • Baskets
  • Wooden Crates
  • Picture Frames
  • Quilts
  • Typewriter
You can start your search online for a vintage rental company in your area. You can also visit sites such as ebay and etsy if you will like to purchase pieces. Visit your local thrift stores and antique markets, and be prepared to purchase what you may find. If you will like to put a large collection together, I suggest giving yourself lots of time to shop around and collect your pieces.
