As we have stated before and we will say it again. When you are shopping for your wedding start your search online. Shopping online gives you a no pressure approach to finding everything you need.  You don’t have to buy for your wedding online it is just a good idea to see what types of vintage wedding products they have and how much they should cost.

We also encourage young couples to step out into their own communities and do some of the browsing and wedding shopping locally. Part of the experience of getting married for a young bride is getting together with her friends and family for a day on the town trying on wedding gowns. We highly suggest you don’t miss out on that process.

 

Shopping for Vintage Invitations Locally

A trip to your local printer, department store, or craft store is a great place to start your search for your vintage wedding invitations locally.  Although we recommend starting your search online, shopping for wedding clothing, decorations, and favors locally is an experience you shouldn’t miss out on. Let’s have a better look at some of the local spots where you can find your wedding invitations.

 

Shopping For Invitations at Local Print Shops

More than likely your local printer press is going to have a large book of sample invitations to choose from. The good thing about deciding to go through the printing press is you can physically hold the sample invitations in your hand and actually feel the quality. Another benefit of buying from a local print shop is the print is going to be perfect. Meaning that you are not going to have to buy additional invitations in case of poor penmanship or errors.

Now for the bad about buying your traditional wedding invitations, save the dates, and R.S.V.P.s from a printer press. The main issue is the cost. In most cases you will find that local print shops charge a lot for their invitations. So if your wedding budget isn’t an issue your local print shop might be the place for you.

Venue Choice and Décor

Finding the perfect venue will determine the general vintage vibes in your wedding. It depends heavily on what era you plan on going for the theme. List your possibilities in accordance, for example, if you wish to have a Gatsby-themed celebration with all the 1920’s glory, a ballroom would be a perfect choice.

For a more intimate setting, country houses with an exquisite garden or a barn will be the best canvas for the wedding planner to paint on. If you wish to keep the course of things more traditional, you can always go for a church ceremony.

Your décor can make or break the theme. Pay special attention to details such as color scheme, fabric choice, and lighting. Vibrant, spunky colors are more peculiar to the late 50’s and 60’s whereas, the muted pastels are more modern. The fabric is particularly important as lace and silk dominated in the past. Incorporate these into your décor in accordance with the venue and general setting. For lighting, chandeliers and candles and lamps are your most obvious choices. Candles in antique holders or glass jars look absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. Play with them and find your perfect setting.

The Bridal Gown and the Groom’s Suit

The search for a dress or a suit can get difficult if you are looking at bridal stores that normally focus on contemporary designs. Thanks to independent businesses, you can now find designers online who specialize in vintage dresses or are willing to make you a custom dress.

For men, you can always get a tailored, well-fitted suit to compliment the theme. Set up appointments and discuss your ideas with them and what they might be able to help you out with. If you wish to don a family heirloom like your mother’s or your grandmother’s wedding dress, there truly is nothing better. Try adding your unique touch to it if you wish by making small additions with detailing. It is your wedding and you deserve to wear what you want and look your absolute best.

Accessories, Hair, and Makeup

You couldn’t find a classic gown and you just cannot take your eyes off this contemporary number, then just accessorize. Accessorizing appropriately can switch your look up without too much effort. A string of pearls is your safest option if you are feeling clueless. As Jackie Kennedy aptly quotes, “Pearls are always appropriate.” Try out hairpieces or a birdcage veil for some added glamour to your vintage look. Perhaps a crown or a tiara fit for a queen and suspenders for your beau. Another gorgeous addition can be a beautiful cascading bouquet with pastel colored flowers to bring the whole look together.

Vintage just reminds me of impeccably styled hair and flawless outfits. Slick, gelled back side parts were the staple for men. They were clean, sexy and polished. As for women, it was all about the volume and drama. Perfect set waves with beautiful side parts were legendary. In addition to that, the makeup was minimal yet very statement. They were not afraid to rock a bold lip. A classic red bold lip, thick winged eyeliner, and beautiful waves, paint a picture in your mind, yet? It’s simple yet iconic. For those who want to keep things less daring, go for something softer like monochromes and pastels.

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Dressing For A Vintage Themed Wedding

Don’t leave out your girlfriends and best mates from all the fun. For the ladies, you can find a wide array of designs to fit the retro glam theme. Play with flares, lace, chiffon, ruffles, sequins, beads, etc. The world is your oyster. Instead of picking out the same outfit for every bridesmaid, you can opt for a variety. Different dresses with similar cuts and designs, in the same color scheme to match the theme, can add a fun twist to the usual monotonous same dress policy. Accessorize your favorite ladies with beads, pearls, chunky bracelets or statement headbands to complete the look.

Men are often left out in this entire montage. With all the chaos of finding the perfect dress for the bride and the dresses for her bridesmaids, I’m sure the groomsmen must be feeling a little neglected. They key is to find something that fits the theme and allows the groom and the groomsmen to reflect their personal styles. Mismatched suits for the groom and the groomsmen, waistcoats, tweed suits, braces, and suspenders are your basic starter’s guide. Furthermore, don’t be afraid to have a little fun with bold colors or prints for that matter. Let your personality shine through your style. Also, a color and print variety means everyone gets to wear what they please. Everyone’s happy they attended your vintage themed wedding.

Vintage Gold Lace Wedding Garters Set

Vintage Gold Lace Wedding Garters Set

Vintage Gold Lace Wedding Garters Set

This vintage gold lace wedding garters set is perfect for the bride and groom planning a Gatsby themed wedding. Allow your guests to take a step back in time to the 1920’s to 1930’s when opulence and class reigned supreme. A roaring twenties inspired wedding reception will be a wedding day that your guests are sure to remember as fondly as you do. The prosperity of those times allowed people of all ages to live life to it’s fullest. No wonder the fashion trends of those days are inspiring brides and grooms from across North America to live it up a little even if it is just for one day.

One of the only issues with planning a Gatsby themed wedding is you are probably not going to find items like that garter above at your local department store. Items like this are usually custom made by very talented designers from around the world. No you don’t have to board the next flight to Paris to find a vintage garter as beautiful as this one. There are plenty of talented designers at lot closer to your home.

 A Time Honored Tradition

The removal of the garter belt is a time honored tradition that usually takes place at a wedding reception.  After a night of champagne, a wonderful dinner, and a night of dancing the removal of the garter will signal to your guests that the night is almost over for them but it is just beginning for this newlywed couple.

This wedding tradition where the groom removes the garter belt from the bride started a very long time ago. In the past though the groomsmen would rush the bride to remove a piece of clothing as they thought it was good luck. The ceremony was thought to represent that the bride was about to lose her virginity. As we all know that ceremony is a lot less threatening for the bride. It is still thought that the article of clothing that is taken from the bride will be lucky but now it will only bring good luck to the single guy that catches the garter. It is exactly like the tossing of the bouqet for the single ladies at the wedding. In this case though the single guy who catches the garter is thought to be the next one to get married.

Not only does this lace garter set highlight the the chic style of a roaring twenties it would also go very well with a bohemian wedding dress. The floral design and natural colors will shine in the natural lights and tones only found in an outdoor wedding.
