How vintage?

There are so many types of vintage nowadays.  FI says that something is considered vintage only if it can be stuck under a piece of glass and put on disply.  He just doesn't get it.  So my question is . . . what era are you going for?


30's?


40's?


50's?


60's?


70's?


Share some pictures too so we can get a feel!

Im not going for a particular "era" so to speak. More like, Antique everything! My dad always collected them, so he has a lot of the decor in his house! We are incorporating a ton of OLD chandeliers, mirrors, & picture frames.


Im not going for photo 1126312-1

I'm going for a 1940's old hollywood style for my bridal attire at least.

CheekyMar . . . great idea!  Love old frames and chandeliers.  There is also something about a ton of mirrors that just makes everything so elegant and truly does give it a vintagey feel!  Beautiful!


 


TheChicBride . . . I love your look.  I looked through your bio and everything is beautiful!  I think you are definately capturing that 40's feel.

I am doing faux guilded picture frames for the menus to be displayed on each table.  There will also be vintage milk glass vases used for all of the centerpieces, like in the picture for the group.  I'm also using a brocade pattern to go under the vases.  So, there is a little antique flavor in the decor.  My attire (bird cage veil, hair accessory, and lace dress--which I cannot show :( ) and hairstyle are retro 1930s mixed with 1940s.  My bio has some pics in the Planning and Beauty sections.

I'm doing 1940's hair & makeup (like Rita Hayworth as inspiration). That's probably the only vintage element, but I love it! My wedding is only 9 days away, I'll be sure to post pics of the hair/makeup.

We're mixing vintage with modern. Our ceremony is at a park but our reception will be at this really contemporary jazz club. It's all in my bio :)

I have no pics or anything yet, since I just joined, but I'm going for a vintage-y feel at my wedding next June.  I live in Williamsburg, Virginia, so it would be difficult to escape history entirely!  I'm trying to mix the Colonial Williamsburg stuff with the swing era, and since the restored district was opened in the 1930s, this works pretty well.  The reception will feature a local big band.  I'm using vintage Williamsburg postcards for the invitations and in some of the decor.  My dress is of an indefinite period, but the bridesmaids' gowns will be made from a vintage 40s pattern.  I'm really looking forward to turning my attention to all the details!

40s/50s We are a rockabilly couple, but we're not doing the rockabilly thing. More traditional 40s.

Everything about my wedding is inspired by the Jazz-Harlem Renaissance era! I'm a huge jazz fan and I love Vaudeville and books are my life so why not incorporate that into my wedding. FI's onboard because he doesn't really want to have anything to do with the actual planning unless it's for him and his guys (which is how I secretly wanted everything to go)! Plenty more in my bio!

1930's classic. My dress is very 30's my groom is in a classic old school tux and bow tie. My venue was built in 1920 and is so classic. I'll also have a harp, the birdaces and a vintage magolia print that is all over everything.
