Modern Vintage Wedding Inspiration

Happy "Color Monday!" Today's inspiration showcases a modern vintage wedding painted in pastels and with a nod to the past. This beautiful real wedding captured by The Lou's is so pretty and fresh! We adore this shade of blue--quite popular right now. We also appreciate how this couple infused timeless elements into their modern wedding. Are you interested in putting a vintage spin on your event? Here are 4 areas from which you can draw from the past in a contemporary way:

#1. Dressing with a nod to the era: Doing a little research will have a big payoff for bringing a fashion sense to your wedding look. Our gorgeous bride looks stunning in her 20's Art Deco style wedding gown and her groom in tails and pinstripe pants. Their attire echoes a look of the past but the feel is completely fresh and modern. One way to immediately update a vintage piece is through modern accessories like jewelry and hairpieces.

#2. Vintage bouquets & floral treatments: From sweet nosegays to cascading sprays, there is nothing like florals to usher in the rich aroma of another time. Some ways to adorn your modern florals with a feel of the past are through brooch bouquets, antique photo charms, lace and other vintage fabric stem wraps.

#3. Décor that speaks to days gone by: Let a few of your decorations speak to the style of the era. From lighting and signage to centerpieces and tablescapes, select décor pieces {hurricane lamps, chandeliers, DIY signs in vintage frames with messaging written in old type fonts, books, vintage cups, and flatware} from the age will help solidify the look and feel.

#4. Wedding Stationery: Your colors, design, and font combinations throughout your stationery suite are the first glimpses into your wedding style. Investigate design and font styles of the era you're going for. Juxtaposing a contemporary color scheme with classic elements is a super fun and effective way to set the tone and express your modern-vintage style.
