What is a vintage wedding? “According to The Wedding Community, the word vintage is used to describe a certain style which conjures images of anything from the glitzy romantic Hollywood glamor of Jean Harlow to the more down to earth village hall and buntings make do and mend with tea from an earthenware teapot. Everything from your dress to your shoes to your flowers can be vintage style.” Because vintage is supposed to represent something that is at least a couple decades old, plantations are ideal for these style weddings.
Plantations are unique in their own regard as they represent history and that sense of times gone by. People love celebrating their special day in a setting that is not only historical, but also beautiful. Plantations are surrounded by lush greenery, blossoming flowers and gardens, huge oak trees, long pathways that lead up to the houses and horse drawn carriages. If you’re looking for that old Southern charm and elegance, then a plantation wedding is idyllic for you.
A vintage-style wedding takes you back to the days of Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis and Elizabeth Taylor. A time when style and elegance reigned supreme, when women wore sweeping gowns and attended regal balls and they had tea parties with crumpets and scones. Plantations bring that old timely feeling back with their charm and ambiance, and they make us want to relive those eras. A plantation wedding makes you feel like a princess, and brings forth that feeling of fairy tale reverence you had when you were a child.
Remember when you were a little girl, and you had imagined how wonderful your wedding day would be? You had the whole event planned out in your head, down to the last flower. And your ideal wedding was on a plantation in a vintage ball gown surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens, walking down a long pathway towards the man of your dreams. Now flash forward to 20 years later, and your dream is about to come true.
People prefer to have their vintage weddings on plantations because it brings their childhood dreams to life. It keeps the feeling of old world charm and grace present and helps to keep the vintage theme throughout the entire event. Vintage plantation weddings are a growing trend, and they are only going to get more popular as more young girls plan out their fairytale wedding.
