Old meets new. Contemporary vintage delicately balances old-fashioned elegance with modern sophistication to create a style that merges old and new. Weddingstar created a beautiful contemporary vintage wedding style with the help of their amazing wedding accessories and décor…
Vintage-style stationery is always an elegant option, so think old-fashioned fonts, retro floral prints, lace patterns and DIY details. From save-the-date cards and wedding invitations to menus and place cards, it is best to pick the same design for all your stationery items. We love Weddingstar’s Vintage Lace stationery collection which has a lovely retro design and includes everything from save-the-date and RSVP cards and invitations to wine bottle labels, stickers, hand fans, favour box wraps and ‘Just Married’ clings for wedding cars. If you want to personalise your stationery with stylish DIY details, you can use elements like vintage lace, burlap, dried flower petals or old buttons to make a truly unique design. Weddingstar’s heart-shaped antique key charm is an adorable detail that will definitely enhance your stationery.
Vintage-inspired ceremony and reception décor can make a stunning visual impact and enhance your wedding photography. From retro chalkboards and antique candle holders to antique books and old wooden boxes filled with fresh flowers, think eye-catching details that will add an instant vintage flair to your decoration scheme. You can choose effective centrepieces such as Weddingstar’s vintage-inspired ornate box with decorative pull which will look amazing if you fill it with roses or their display drawer with shelf which you can decorate with flowers and candles. Weddingstar also has gorgeous new retro candleholders such as the vintage-inspired iron taper candle holders which is the perfect match for their ornate vintage framed chalkboard. For finishing touches you can use their lovely wooden pegs with English garden pattern.
Think quirky 1920s cocktail dresses with dropped waists and fringing (which are great for dancing), elegant 1930s inspired gowns or old Hollywood glamour-style tea length frocks. Bridesmaid dresses and groom’s attire should match the style of your wedding gown and don’t forget to add some statement accessories to make the styling even more original. Think whimsical boutonnieres and vintage-style bouquet alternatives for the bridal party, but also consider including extravagant headpieces, colourful retro jewellery and other fun accessories to your bridal outfit. We also recommend adding details like Weddingstar’s antiqued Battenburg lace parasol or their gorgeous crystal studded silver hair comb.
Finally, you need vintage-style photos in your wedding album, so don’t forget to include retro cameras and a photo booth equipped with old-fashioned props like fashion accessories, smoking pipes and vintage hats. Renting a photo booth is a popular trend at weddings and it is a great way to entertain your guests. We think giving your guests a disposable retro camera as bomboniere is also a great idea. Weddingstar stocks amazing single-use cameras with flash that have a beautiful vintage design which can complement a variety of wedding themes and colour schemes. Your friends will capture moments from your wedding that would otherwise be missed and you will have wonderful memories to cherish for the rest of your life.
