History has always included romance in some way shape or form, and in 2011 history will again repeat itself. A trend that is gaining some major momentum is the vintage and very romantic wedding. By incorporating items and ideas from the past with modern elements, bridal couples are creating an intimate feel for their weddings regardless of the number of guests attending.
Letterpress Invitations by Carlson Craft® set the tone for these romantic weddings. Letterpress printing has been around for centuries and has long been regarded as an art. Through the use of a special printing press and technique, a beautiful ink impression of the desired wedding invitation wording is made on high-quality paper. Printed pieces using the letterpress technique can easily be recognized by the impressions of the letters and the raised texture they create on the back of each piece of wedding stationery. Entire wedding stationery ensembles are available using the letterpress technique.

To continue the elegant feel presented by their wedding invitations, couples are holding their weddings in classic locations such as beautiful, old churches, rustic town halls and one-room schoolhouses from days gone by. Weddings and receptions held outdoors, especially in vineyards, are also very popular locations to hold romantic, vintage celebrations.

Brides are scouring through their mother’s and grandmother’s closets and jewelry boxes in search of wedding dresses and accessory items. If the dress fits and is in wearable condition, why not take the opportunity to honor one near and dear to the heart? Brooches, pins, beads, etc., are great for use when designing a headpiece and jewelry easily serves as “something old” or “something borrowed.” Local thrift shops, antique shops, auctions and yard sales are always a great alternative when family attics reveal little in terms of family heirlooms.

A very special way to create some romantic nostalgia is to display the wedding day photos of your parents, grandparents and other special family and close friends on the tables at your reception. If you don’t have enough of these photos, include old black-and-white family photos in the mix. An alternative would be to display photos of famous couples like George Burns and Gracie Allen; Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall; Jackie and John F. Kennedy; and so on. For fun you might consider other famous couples like Homer and Marge Simpson, Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Mike and Carol Brady. Black-and-white or sepia-colored images are the epitome of vintage photos.

By recycling and reusing items from the past, vintage weddings become extremely affordable, yet still lack nothing when it comes to beauty and style!

Beach Themed Indoor Wedding: {Greensboro Event Center}

 

If you are a lover of the beach but are hopelessly stuck inland, consider bringing the beach to you! Bride Sara and Groom Joseph did just that when their love of the beach trumped any other decor option for their wedding. We just love the turquoise blue paired with the tropical plants as shown below. Adding a touch of yellow was just perfect. The tropical setting is found at the New Irving Park Event Center, owned and operated by The Wedding Galleria by Bella in Greensboro, North Carolina and a beach themed wedding or event is just one of the many decors that translates well here. We hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we’ve enjoyed sharing them with you!
