If you’re looking for a little inspiration for a vintage style wedding and you’d like to get married abroad, I found that Italy offers different perfect venues for a vintage wedding!
First of all you need to find a venue. In Italy you will have a great choice, from the neoclassic villas with big halls, decorated with old furnitures, big mirrors, Murano glass chandeliers and iron candelabras to a Factory Loft and old farmhouses in the italian countryside.
The details are very importants, so we suggest a trip at the local antiques market, where you will find original objects to decorate the venue. Let’s have a look a these original table centerpieces: a Bone China teapot with peonies, a bird cage with feathers and a round hat box with hydrangeas and roses.
As Tableau du Mariage or Escort Cards you can use old skeleton keys with tags or vintages buttons.
Instead of the multi-tiers wedding cake, offers your guests cupcakes and french macarons served in nice vintage cake stands.
For your reception tables use Italy vintage postcards or pictures of old marriages, as Table Name Cards.
Set out an old-fashioned typewriter for guests to write good wishes to the bride and groom
Give your friends and close family an excuse to dress up with vintage and old dresses.
If you have not inherited the wedding dress from your grandmother or great-grandmother, you can have a look at some vintage designers and shop as Vintage Wedding Dress Company, Ronit Zilkha or Miss Linn.
When planning a vintage wedding, the bridal bouquet will be an important detail. Use antique style roses, pearls, feathers, buttons, dark colours like gold, purple, brass..
Last but not least the wedding car : a vintage car like a Plymouth Savoy, a Sedan Chevrolet, a Cadillac, a Topolino or a Bentley.
