Vintage Wedding Theme: Wedding Flowers

The vintage wedding theme is ready to reign over another wedding season.  Back and better than ever, the vintage theme is here to make it’s mark on 2014.

Last week’s post Vintage Wedding Theme: Wedding Decorations gave us a preview of the new trend Heirloom wedding and hot new items like birdcages, telephones and typewriters used in wedding decor.  These focal pieces give us a glimpse of just one of the ways the vintage theme has re-invented itself this season.

Pink and Cream Vintage Wedding Bouquet, Peony, Ranunculus, Anemone

But what is in store for this year’s wedding palette?  This year’s vintage wedding is set against the backdrop of soft, muted and romantic floral hues.

  • Soft pinks and muted purple pastels are traditionally feminine hues to create a fairytale wedding look.
  • For neutrals off whites, antiqued creams and soft beiges are the perfect accent.
  • Add a touch of metallics in gold or silver, another fabulous trend within this wedding category, to go Vintage Glam.

What better way to incorporate romantic floral hues than in your wedding flower arrangements?  This year’s top vintage themed wedding flowers are:

Roses are a traditional flower associated with romance the perfect fit for a vintage wedding.  Peonies and Ranunculus have a close look to several types of roses.  They are just as popular for their soft and romantic look with layers of lush petals.

Real peony flowers have a short bloom season which leads to a high price tag for stems in floral arrangements.  Real ranunculus blooms are a more budget friendly option but are often quite fragile and need to be paired with other types of flowers for support.  But guess what?  Using silk flowers saves you from both these issues.  Letting you use peony and ranunculus silk flowers freely in any floral arrangement.

The vintage wedding theme gives us so many options this season.  Use these new trends in wedding decor, palettes and flowers for inspiration to start planning your vintage fairytale wedding day!

Hello!  My wedding is going to be in Portland, OR the city of Roses! at the World Forestry Center right next to the International Rose Test Garden. My colors are a seafoam green that the bridesmaid dress designer Alfred Sung calls “Fresh.  It’s lovely, my absolute favorite color… not too green, not too blue, just right in the middle like the ocean over white sand. I hope to compliment this with soft pinks (think ballet slipper pink), corals, and mauve’s. I am having a hard time making decisions about table settings because I’m not sure whether these colors will look best with gold or silver accents… Maybe if I had a flower inspiration board I could picture it all better and make some decisions! I love big full garden roses, english spray roses, peonies, and the delicateness of the purple shaded wax fillers.
