Vintage Wedding

.

.

Welcome to week five of our wedding design inspiration series! Only two more weeks left of this series. Over the past few weeks we have shared design inspiration of our Modern Elegance Wedding Design, our Rustic Elegance Wedding Design, a Barn Wedding and most recently our Industrial Elegance Wedding. Traci, Whimsy boutique owner, has designed some gorgeous weddings over the years, and her style is remarkable! 

.

This week we are sharing design inspiration on a vintage inspired wedding  with a rustic flair! A vintage wedding is expressed most profoundly through the venue, decor style, and the bridal party attire.  It's a wedding full of nostalgia with antique details, weathered accents and some lace! The biggest design struggle is to make the wedding look charming and not upcycled! Traci took this refurbished barn, added her vintage inspired style and designed a breathtaking wedding for this happy couple!

Vintage Inspired Wedding

The Venue

.

.

.

A beautifully refurbished barn was the setting for this vintage inspired wedding! This perfectly weathered barn set the tone for the design of this wedding, giving it a slight rustic flair. Let the venue choice lead your design for a vintage inspired wedding. Don't try and mask the elements of the venue, rather use mismatched vintage details that compliment the space well.

This charming house exudes vintage style with its architectural features. The large wrap around porch, windows and scrolling corbels add to the old world vibe of the evening.

Inside the weathered barn were three large crystal chandeliers. These were such a beautiful and unexpected addition to the venue further complimenting this vintage inspired wedding. If your venue does not have chandeliers, you might be able to bring in your own. Traci has often brought in her own chandeliers to add vintage elegance to a space. Don't let the lack of vintage charm stop you from adding your own!

The Decor

.

The decor all paid tribute to a vintage era. The tablescapes were created using rustic galvanized vases. Mixing and matching different heights and sizes of glass jars with antique details brought the wedding theme together. Notice the cake table -Traci brought in vintage furniture to add to the ambiance. Notice how the bride opted for a simple cake. We love this simplistic touch and how it allowed the design elements to shine.

Traci's sweet tables are always such a beautiful focal point for the room. She opts for antique serving tables and vintage serving ware. Pull together your decor by choosing to rent certain furniture pieces, such as an antique serving table, for a functional vintage-inspired addition!

Intimate family details bring meaning to your vintage theme. This couple displayed pictures of themselves and included an area paying tribute to loved ones that they lost. The sentimental value of adding personal touches allows guests a glimpse inside the fairy tale you are celebrating.

The guest table centerpieces were created using galvanized vases and greenery which brought life to the space. Set next to the glamorous chandeliers, opting for greens instead of large floral arrangements let the design elements shine! Your centerpieces don't have to be large floral arrangements, using greens against a glam backdrop is a great way to tone down the glam and add depth to the space.

The flowers

.

While greenery was used at the guest tables, there were plenty of breathtaking flowers around the venue. Traci used neutrals with pastel accents to create these amazing flower arrangements. She does most of the arrangements herself, and they truly are one of a kind! Check out the gorgeous bouquet and pedestal flower arrangements.

Vintage details

.

.

Traci added this vintage bike to the outdoor space and filled the basket with a wildflower arrangement. It is such a charming detail to catch the guests eyes. Most of the time, inside the venue is the main focus. It is nice to see some attention to detail on the exterior of the venue as well! 

.

.

That's a wrap on this vintage inspired wedding with rustic flair! Everything came together so beautifully. Traci always outdoes herself on the details and floral arrangements. Try taking the tips mentioned above to compliment your venue space in just the right way!

.

We are looking forward to sharing just ONE more wedding Traci designed and styled! Did you enjoy the industrial wedding design? We would love for you to share the below image on Pinterest!! Thanks so much!
