To plan a vintage wedding there are several different things you need to do, first you must decide on the location for the reception, luckily there are many venues like homes, hotels, castle that can cater to your needs. If you want everything to be vintage inspired, there are a lot of options available for the wedding decorations. You can for example buy or rent old antique furniture, buy antique engagement rings and of course choose a vintage wedding dress.
Finding a dress is probably the most difficult of the above. But if you have a family member like an aunt that has a wedding dress, you may be able to borrow her dress; many people pass their dresses down from generation to generation. You might be able to relook the dress or add custom decoration to your convenience. Unfortunately this is not the case for most people and if you are unable to get yourself a family dress, then you need to start looking very early for the perfect dress in the dedicated shops.
There are mainly two types of dresses you can have with a vintage look. The first is to buy a replica dress custom made the second is to find an original dress. A replica is most probably the easiest option although it can be costly, but you can get the exact style that you want from the era you have chosen. Finding an original is not as easy but with the Internet you may be able to find your dream dress. There are many trading sites and second hand sites that can help you in your quest.
A vintage inspired wedding can be one of the most memorable types of wedding for not only the bride and groom but the entire wedding party! You can make your special day even more special by bringing a little bit of history to life for one magical day.
