If you look at the definition of the word Vintage, some of the words it lists are; era, classic, traditional, pure and antique. All of these words evoke a romantic image and one that continues to be popular with couples who are planning their vintage theme wedding. A day filled with tradition, but with the couple’s own unique slant can be a truly magical event and it’s not hard to see why.
When you’re looking for vintage wedding ideas it might help to define what type of vintage you’re after. The term vintage can be referred to when describing the year or place in which wine was produced, the era a car was made, or styles and trends from previous decades. Of course, the last definition is probably the most applicable when we seek vintage wedding ideas.
Essentially, when it comes down to it, vintage is a throwback to a classic era that has an identifiable style. It’s a way to fashionably re-use and recycle items in your parent’s or grandparent’s attic. It’s encouraged to infuse sentimentality in every detail at a vintage wedding. This theme certainly takes care of that “something old” from the popular rhyme thought to be from the Victorian period.
