Having a vintage-inspired wedding is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s not hard to see why. From the gorgeous dresses to the classic decor, vintage weddings bring with them an air of timeless sophistication and class that is sure to make your special day unique and unforgettable.

When it comes to planning your vintage-inspired wedding, there are some key elements to consider. First, decide on a color scheme. Light pastel colors like pink, blue, and yellow are great for a nostalgic look, while bold jewel tones will give your wedding a more modern vintage feel.

The Dress

No vintage-style wedding is complete without the perfect dress. For a truly timeless look, opt for a classic silhouette such as an A-line or ball gown with delicate lace and beading. If you’re looking for a more modern approach, choose a dress with a vintage-inspired print or a 1920s style flapper dress.

The Decor

Decorate your venue with vintage accents such as mason jars, old books, antique clocks, and tea sets. For a bit of modern flair, mix and match vintage pieces with bold and bright colors like gold, silver, and emerald green. To add even more personality to your vintage wedding, add a touch of rustic charm with bales of hay, burlap table runners, and wooden signs.

The Dessert

For the sweet tooth, opt for a classic dessert with a vintage twist. Think pies topped with frosting, cupcakes with a sprinkle of sugar, and delicious ice cream sundaes. These tasty treats will be sure to satisfy your guests and add an extra layer of nostalgia to your special day.


No vintage wedding is complete without the perfect music. Take your guests back in time by playing some classic songs from yesterday with a modern twist. Create your own unique mix of old and new tunes to set the tone for the night. For an extra special touch, book a live band to perform some jazzy tunes.

Photo Booth

A vintage-style photo booth is a must-have for any retro-inspired wedding. Choose fun props such as vintage hats, glasses, and costumes to allow your guests to let their inner “oldschool” shine. Choose a backdrop that adds to your theme, such as a themed wall with a garland of lights or a mural from a retro era.

We hope these tips help you plan an unforgettable vintage wedding and bring a nostalgic feel to your special day.
