Vintage Wedding Theme..It's All The Rage!!

Do you love the idea of vintage weddings? Is the Victorian age your personal favorite? How about the roaring twenties or the fabulous fifties? The span of just over one hundred years has given us plenty of ideas for fun, unique, and excellent wedding theme choices. So let's see what theme wedding appeals to you.

Starting with the Victorian age, you could plan a wedding around a formal Victorian garden. Or perhaps a more intimate, casual, early afternoon wedding with a Victorian tea party is more your style. Parasols, lace gloves, beautiful blooms, and vintage-look invitations are definitely needed for this theme era.

Moving on, we have the Roaring Twenties, with speakeasies, feather boas, flapper dresses, and long pearl necklaces. Free-spirited and fun-loving, this era gave us some of the best jazz music.

The "Art Deco 30's" and the big band era of the forties are also wonderful choices for anyone planning a vintage theme wedding. The fifties gave us rock n' roll, sock hops, and poodle skirts, while the sixties were filled with peace symbols, granny glasses, and flowered bell-bottoms. The seventies moved us into disco, Saturday Night Fever, mini-skirts, hot pants, and open shirts which displayed lots of gold chains and medallions.

The past century has certainly been a wild ride, with changes practically every decade. Take the time to look back at what decade appeals most to you, and then do a bit of research on it to find out dress styles, music choices, dance steps, decor, and other such information. This background information will help as you make decisions on wedding colors, cake style, menu, decorations, favors, and most importantly, your bridal attire for the entire wedding party.

Oh, if I could go back and do it again, I think my choice would be the Roaring 20's. How fun that would be!!

Well, this is our wrap up for wedding themes. So many to choose from, I wonder how a bride today can stand it!! Weddings can be so personal and individual nowadays. The only thing you need is imagination ;D
