Top Vintage Wedding Theme Ideas

Posted by Catherine Sgambellone on


Soon-to-be-wedded couples have lots of choices when it comes to wedding ideas. Some couples want their wedding to be to be modern, and there are those who want to have a vintage theme. For couples who want the latter, here are some top vintage wedding theme ideas that they can work on.


There are times when it is better to opt for something old and something borrowed instead of something new. It is all about the small details such as the bomboniere, flowers, and decorations. Vintage theme is all about romance, glamour, and stylish details. They usually involve a soft colour palette made of tones of ivory, gold, pale pink, beige, white, and cream.



The location for a vintage wedding theme can be your own garden, a manor house, or a marquee. Make sure that the location fits with the date setting. Picking a modern looking location will destroy the ambiance of the wedding. 


Vintage wedding ideas are aplenty when it comes to choosing the decorations for the big day. You can opt to serve tea after the ceremony using mismatched cups and saucers. You can even use the mismatched tea set as favors for the guests. To set the mood right, hang lanterns on trees. Use old candelabras or birdcages as centrepieces of each table. Other centrepiece ideas include teapots or vintage jugs. If you are going for a summer wedding theme, use picnic baskets as the centrepieces. 

The sandwiches and cakes that you serve must be placed on vintage cake holders. You should also hang bunting around the tables and trees to make the occasion more festive. To save on flowers, pick some from your own garden or your friends’ gardens. Get old glass bottles and put a single flower in each of the bottles. Place the bottles along the path as part of the decorations.


Wedding Entertainment

The band or wedding singer you hire for the big event must be able to perform music from specific decades. Depending on the wedding theme, the band must be able to play songs from the Roaring 20s, Fabulous 50s, or the Swinging 60s. It depends on the era of the theme.


Wedding Favors

If you want something personal, then buy hanky’s embroidered with the initials of each guest. Or you can opt for mini gumball machines. Couples can also choose the mini linen drawstring pouch with vintage infused love print to hand out to each guest. A vintage designed single use camera will also make a good wedding favour.

These are the vintage wedding ideas that you can use for your big day. Make sure that you give it your personal touch to ensure that the wedding reflects yours and your special someone’s personalities.
