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.

2013 Wedding Trends: Art Deco

A recent post on prweb.com gives us a glimpse of what was, the 2012 wedding trend world, and a glimpse of what is to be.   To kick off 2013, Florida Wedding Planner, Aviva Samuels of Kiss the Planner, reveals it’s top 13 predictions to look for.  Samuels states, “so many great trends from 2012 will live on into 2013, but I think the number one takeaway from this past year is that the trend has been, and will continue to be in making a statement about who you are as a couple and finding ways to make your wedding unique.”

Samuel gives a great rundown of wedding trends to look for in 2013.  One that stands out as fresh, unique and hot right now on any wedding blog is Art Deco Weddings.

As Samuel  lets on to, hot trends of 2012 have transcended into something new for the upcoming year.  “Sparkle and glitter were everywhere in 2012 and lives on in a more refined way, in the form of Art Deco styling.”

Keep an eye out. “All over the fashion runway and in vogue in the interior design world, this new trend will invariably penetrate the wedding community too, showing up on gowns, bridesmaid dresses, cakes, table linens and printed items.”

Art Deco is a movement that was popular in the roaring 1920′s into the ’30s and ’40s, characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes, design and lavish ornamentation. In the wedding world this can translate into beautiful detailed bridal wear, lush, exotic florals with feathers and ornamented gems.

Samuel says to take note in 2013 bridal fashion, “Brides will also take a cue from the 1920′s flapper styling in anticipation of the upcoming Great Gatsby movie. High and low hemlines, sheer overlays, corset bodices, ombre coloration, belted gowns and peplums, as well as gold and other colored gowns will continue to hit the runway.”

Decor is rich and lavish with real glass, china, silverware and metal on tablescapes lit up with romantic candles and twinkle lights.  Take inspiration from the recent, ever popular vintage wedding theme by using real vintage china and glass ware for table settings or favors.  Feathers, strings of beads or pearls are also beautiful additions to any tablescape accenting lush floral centerpieces.
