Don't Be Afraid Of Color...Throw in some royal blue, deep green, magenta, tangerine, etc! Vintage does not need to mean neutral/beige/boring:) Why not bring a bouquet to life with papaya colored tulips?? Throw a avocado colored overlay on top of that white/ivory tablecloth. Make a statement with a fun lil DYI project...find a old door at a flea market and paint it bright red! What a great backdrop for pictures of you and your guests:)
Goodbye Mason Jars, Hello Vintage Cans...Vintage cans are one of my favorite centerpiece items. They add that extra splash of color and are crazy cheap. Check in with Grandma first and see if she has any lying around... peruse flea markets/antique shops or check out Antique Mystique for some classics!
Buttons, Books, and More...It's the simple things that make a vintage wedding so special. Try incorporating buttons instead of flower petals as a table runner or utilize them on you table cards! Books are one of my favorite things to decorate with...stack them for different levels on your dessert table or have your bridesmaids carry love stories instead of bouquets when walking up the aisle! And how sweet is a typewriter guest book??! Enjoy taking the "traditional" wedding elements and replacing them with some vintage charm:)
Have any fresh ideas?? Let us know!
