Elegant and reflective of a bygone era, a true vintage wedding features historical references while still holding its own in a modern context. From furniture and decorations to accessories and bomboniere, there are lots of ways to beautifully incorporate a vintage theme in your wedding.

A vintage wedding is a wedding which has been styled and planned to reflect the aesthetic of a bygone era. For example, most vintage-themed weddings make reference to the Victoria era, as well as the ’20s or ’40s.
