The vintage trend on the bridal runway continues to emerge. Many brides are drawn to smaller, more organic bouquets that display a variety of unconventional flowers. The idea that less is more is a subtle yet dramatic approach to bridal arrangements.
Baby’s breath is popular among brides this year and is a classic, light, and cost effective way to achieve the vintage look. The tiny white flowers are dainty but full and tasteful when they are gathered.
A colonial inspired bouquet can include eucalyptus, rosemary, oregano even thyme and mint—a fragrant option—while accents of Queen Anne’s lace and dusty miller can soften the rustic look and provide an elegant, mystical appeal.
While the term “vintage” can often be misused to describe anything with an antiquated flair, setting your flowers in mercury or pewter vases, mason jars and handcrafted accessories will add validity to the picture.
Textured greenery, such as ivy or jasmine vine can be pinned to chairs, dressed on chandeliers and even used as a complement to cocktail menus. This will assist in giving your vintage wedding a “days of old” essence!
