Most vintage style weddings make reference to the Victoria era, as well as the ’20s or ’40s. This theme is really expressed through the garments, hair and makeup worn by the bridal party, as well the venue styling, floral and decoration choices. Vintage wedding cars, Jazz bands and cocktail parties can help enhance the Vintage Wedding feel.
A DIY wedding means you’re “Doing it Yourself”! This usually means that you may create your own centerpieces, or ceremony décor. Maybe you even challenge yourself to create your own floral bouquets and floral arrangements.
