Giving Your Wedding a Vintage Feel… on a Budget

Everybody loves a bit of vintage, right? And everybody loves saving money where and when they can, yes? Well, if you are currently in the midst of planning your wedding (and are stuck for ideas on its theme and seem to be going overboard with your spending at every turn) then you can suffice your love for all things vintage and your need to save some money by giving your wedding a vintage feel… on a budget. 

To see exactly how this is achieved, make sure to read on. 

Start with the invitations 

As with any weddings theme, yours must be set and started by the invitations that you send out. So, what this means for you, first and foremost, is that you are going to have to send out vintage wedding invitations. Whether this means asking a low-cost bespoke stationery designer to create them for you, or whether this means creating them yourself in order to save a bit of cash, just make sure that they set your vintage tone. 

Lace decorations are your friend 

When it comes to giving your ceremony hall and your reception party room that vintage feel you crave for, make sure to remember that lace is very much your friend. Yes, lace decor instantly makes any area look far more vintage than it actually is, so make sure you have plenty of it. 

As are classic pearls

Classic pearls are also very much your friend when it comes to your quest to inducing as vintage a feel as possible in your wedding. By draping strings of classic pearls wherever and whenever you see fit over your wedding centres and tables, you and your guests will instantly be transported back to the Roaring Twenties, a time synonymous for glitz and glamour. And, what this will mean is that your wedding will well and truly feel vintage. 

Rustic signs are always a hit 

Rustic and vintage go hand in hand, and rustic signs can be found on the cheap, so putting up as many rustic signs as you can around your wedding ceremony and reception area will always prove to be a win-win. These could be wooden rustic signs that direct your guests to a certain area, or just signs with quotes on to make your guests smile. Whatever their purpose, just know that they will always prove to be a hit. 

Storage jars fit the bill perfectly 

If you have made little things like sweets and candy available to your guests then you’re going to need something to store them in, and vintage style storage jars will fit this bill perfectly. They will do so, especially when they come with a worn, pastel-coloured look, because they always look incredibly vintage and can either be picked up on the cheap in the shops or online or picked up free in your grandparents’ kitchen! 

As you can see, giving your wedding the vintage look doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. To find more fanatic wedding theme ideas, make sure to head here.

  1. If you are getting married in the summer and either have or know of a friend or family member that has a green thumb, you may be able to ask them if they would grow some of your flowers for the wedding.

    Also, asking your Mother and Mother-in-law if you may borrow a piece of jewelry (earrings, a brooch, necklace), will save money and probably make them feel good too.
