Make Your Louisiana Vintage Wedding Stand Out
Louisiana Vintage Weddings have become what all the trendy brides do. If you want a wedding that will impress your guests, a vintage wedding will be sure to win the award for the prettiest wedding of the year. But with everyone labeling their wedding as vintage, how can you make your vintage wedding stand out? Luckily, we are here to show you how you can marry the vintage theme with your personal style.
Wearing the Right Gown
The best way for your guests to understand that your wedding is vintage, is with your dress. We all know that vintage wedding dresses can look matronly and make the prettiest bride resemble the bride of Frankenstein. When researching vintage wedding dresses, pay attention to the little details. Typically, vintage dresses are cut a certain way, include large amounts of lace, and are accentuated with pearls, not crystals. When shopping in your bridal boutique, look for these elements, while finding a dress that fits your body like a glove. This is a great way to include your personal style with the vintage classics.
That Vintage Taste
When planning your vintage wedding, pay attention to the food and drinks you will be serving. Food and drinks are a major part of any celebration and if you don’t apply your vintage theme to your menu, you are missing a key part of a vintage wedding. If you are throwing a vintage 50’s wedding no vintage reception would be complete without martinis. One way to put your personal touch on your vintage menu is including a special family recipe or serving what your mother served at her wedding reception.
Albany Plantation is perfect for wedding mixing and matching
If you are a fan of the vintage theme, but can’t give up your modern taste, then don’t. The best way to create a vintage wedding that will stand out is through mixing and matching. Most brides have a tendency to make everything match from the napkins to the plates to the seat cushions. Don’t be afraid to mix it up, use different style chairs, a variety of plate designs, or incorporate modern elements to the vintage decor. Here’s a few more ideas for Louisiana Vintage/Rustic
A great way to capture that vintage look forever for your wedding is taking black and white or sepia toned photos. You can even use these photos on your thank you cards.
