Wedding Tip #1: Retro Chic

Wedding Tip #1: Retro Chic

Now that you have found the perfect engagement ring, the planning begins. If you’re looking for something to make your special day especially yours, try weaving a subtle vintage theme throughout the details of the affair.

The explosive popularity of the television series Mad Men continues to influence today’s pop culture and Retro is a hot trend for the fall. It can also offer a unique style to a home spun wedding or simply add some old-school style to the reception.

If you’re feeling extra inspired or daring, choose a tea length wedding dress, or see if your grandfather still has that old tuxedo in his closet. Make it your own with new shoes and accessories to give it a more modern take and avoid playing dress up.

Or try having a cookie bar to accompany your wedding cake. Not only is it a good alternative for the kids, but it is the perfect excuse to decorate the dessert table with retro-style milk bottles. It will be a unique touch, reminiscent of the days when milk was delivered to your doorstep.

For weddings held outdoors, try lighting the walkway with antique lanterns to help give the setting a country feel. Tie ribbons around the bottom in your wedding colors to add a more personal touch.

And for those who are die hard fans of a retro themed wedding, get going from the very start by selecting a vintage inspired engagement ring. The single solitaire diamond concept with a modern twist is perfect for the bride who wants a little flare with this timeless style.
