Real Bride Stories
Old is in, in a big way and brides are loving a vintage moment! Going old school for your wedding can include anything from props to your gown! Whether it’s the free-spirited vibe of the sixties or the glitz and glam of the twenties, here are 7 fabulous ways to make retro new for your special day!
How cute is this 60’s inspired cocktail hour? Using an old VW bug, turned bar, these drinks will have you traveling back in time to Woodstock!
High-top tables and coke bottle-inspired drinks give any party that Happy Days 50’s flair! Add lots of pastels and bold shades to your color palette. Transport your guests to a modern-day sock hop with an oversized record to display your table numbers.
Big hair, a neon palette, and MTV pretty much sum up the 80s! And don’t forget about classic arcade games too! Which would make the perfect addition to your reception for a little out-of-the-box fun.
Go full swing Roaring Twenties with a venue Gatsby would have approved of! Include plenty of art deco details. Imagine how glamorous a flowing champagne tower, deco-designed place cards, and black and gold tablescapes will look!
An old-school Polaroid is something you and your guests can treasure long after your wedding day! Think of your retro photo booth as a snapshot into the past, and the future!
With an icon like Audrey Hepburn, it’s no surprise brides love a 50’s theme! Classic and elegant, a tea-length gown, Like Birdie or Blanche, will feel effortlessly sophisticated. Accent it with a voluminous updo and a bird-cage veil.
Crocheted table clothes, plenty of vintage lace, and an array of bold hues will have boho brides channeling their inner hippy! And of course, any flower child needs cascading florals everywhere from the cake too, mason jars, to a flower crown!
