If you love lace, adore antiques, old treasures and nostalgia and you are planning a wedding, then read on…
It’s certainly not a new trend, in fact far from it, According to the dictionary, Vintage is defined as “of old, recognised, and enduring interest, importance, or quality; dating from the past” In reality Vintage is a somewhat subjective term which spans the early 1900s to the turn of the 70s.
Either way, this timeless theme is still very much a firm favourite for many brides-to-be (and us) and understandably so, the options are endless!
The internet is overflowing with ideas for vintage themed weddings, but sorting through ALL the options can get a bit draining! So, we’ve bought a few of our favourite vintage wedding ideas together to help with some inspiration.
