The vintage style has been a wedding trend that has taken over weddings of all seasons. But what exactly is a vintage wedding and how do you put one together? Wedding and Party Network has the tips and tricks to make your wedding the vintage fantasy you have been dreaming of.

Defining Vintage
Vintage means something old-fashioned making a reappearance in the modern world–bringing back the elegance and daintiness of another era.

What's so great about this theme/style is the use of antiques with some DIY. This theme emphasizes use of thrift finds in decor and using mismatched dinnerware for the table setting.

Dressing up
Vintage is centered around bringing back the old-fashioned looks. For grooms, the use of suspenders and for brides, think lots of lace. Forego the long veils and consider a headband or a birdcage veil.

The goal is to look romantic and delicate–maybe even throwing in some wears from Grandma's wedding!

Unique and Elegant
The goal of the vintage look is to look outside the traditional decor and food to make something truly intimate. Many brides enjoy the use of pictures and old typewriters as pretty decor that tells a story rather than just look pretty.

A vintage wedding can be as simple or as extravagant as a bride wants. It takes a lot of flea marketing weekends and creativity to put together.

If you are an old soul that wants to bring a little flashback to your wedding, consider going vintage. For more ideas and tips, check back to Wedding and Party Network's Celebration Blog.

The table setting is the main wedding decor your guests will see throughout your reception, so you want to make sure that you get it just right for your special day. Wedding and Party Network brings you some trending wedding tablescape inspiration.

Vintage Garden Party

Vintage and rustic has been the popular theme for summer weddings. Incorporate that even through the fall with a garden party style look. Fine teacups and mismatched china paired with vintage props give the feel of a Victorian tea party. This is a perfect table setting if your colors include pastels and you are having a small wedding reception.

Modern With Color Pop

Dark colors like black and red paired with a pop of bright colors make for a bold table settings. Choosing a pattern like damask or brocade give a classic look and makes color stand out. You can use simple china and glassware and choose accents like flowers, table markers, and small decor in your stand out color. This tablescape is simple and great for a big wedding reception.

Fresh and Romantic

Gold and color accents paired with flowers and wood make the feminine mix with the masculine. Use white table linens and pair with colorful china. Bright roses and tree stump slabs make this table decor very versatile and fresh. Your future husband will enjoy the mix of the outdoors with the girly for a well rounded table setting. This can fit a reception of any size.

Whatever style you decide for your wedding's tablescape, make sure your personality and unique style shines through. Check back with Wedding and Party Network for  more wedding ideas and trends.
