Five Must Haves for a Vintage Wedding Bouquet

I am so in love with the latest vintage wedding trend. There’s rustic vintage, glam vintage, the list is endless. But, at the end of the day, there are five elements that every good vintage wedding bouquet needs.

1. Soft, Muted Tones

My favorite vintage wedding colors are blush and lavender. You will never see a vintage wedding bouquet with bright pops of color. The beauty of a vintage bouquet can be found in it’s  soft, romantic, and understated palette.

2. Charms, Charms, Charms

Bouquet charms are a cute wedding accessory, and a great way to honor loved ones that are dear to your heart, or have passed on. I personally would  put a picture of my adorable fur child (yes, my puppy) in one of those charms. I’m sure some of you dog moms definitely agree.

3. Baby’s Breath

This wedding flower is a vintage bouquet must have. It acts as a simple and classic filler. It’s inexpensive, but really adds to your wedding bouquet, making it look more lush and full.

4. Satin Ribbon

Satin ribbon is timeless.  Wrap your bouquet with this classic wedding accessory. I don’t recommend using striped, patterned, or shimmery ribbon to wrap your vintage wedding bouquet, as it will totally clash with the simple style.

5. A Simple Manicure

You want your soft romantic bouquet to be the center of attention, so don’t ruin it with bright, tacky nails.
