Decoration that will work for a vintage wedding

Choosing wedding themes can be tough, but fear not! For this season’s favourites, we are set to give you some pointers in the right direction. We already mentioned the popularity of the Volkswagen minivan amongst vintage-lovers but wedding decoration does not have to be this big. Sometimes, it’s all in the details! The great thing about this theme is that is never dates! It is also a theme that is very doable for COBs (Couples on a budget!) since it is all about re-using those beautiful things from the past such as leather suitcases, cameras, used books etc…. The sky is the limit and adding your personal touch to this theme is not as difficult as you might think, it just needs a hint of creativity. And ask around! Who might help you out? Who loves going to antique markets or has something in an attic that could be of use? For interior decoration, we are thinking; clocks, frames, vases and different instruments!

If you are having an outdoor or garden wedding, you have this amazing opportunity to create cosy little corners for your guests to snug in so how about some forged tables and chairs with small pillows and a matching cloth? Liberty print, pin-up, the 50’s, patchwork, geometrical designs… you name it. You can even go for your favourite colour!


Consider having a swing, a hammock, a rocking chair covered with plaids and very popular, bird cages in different colours and sizes! We also love the idea of a pick-nick corner, lanterns, some wine barrels, wooden stools, an old bike, a pick-up, a Vespa...
