Styling a Vintage Wedding Ceremony & Reception

by Divine Events

Vintage inspired wedding styling encompasses a wide variety of sub categories from shabby chic to linen and lace, provincial farm house to Great Gatsby.

Below are some of our favourite vintage themed weddings that we have styled and the elements we used to create the look.

Pastel Lace & Linen

This lovely wedding was styled at The Taronga Zoo. The bride wanted a touch of lace somewhere on the table and had soft golds, peaches, creams and pinks in her colour palette. This worked beautifully into a linen and lace concept offering a soft vintage feel.  Simple white tablecloths were paired with white tiffany chairs, latte lace runners, and assorted bottle and bud vases to accomplish this look. The flowers were pastel and mixed with foliage and berries for a natural wild-flower look and the soft pink and pastel tones compliment the latte lace perfectly. This look can be accomplished with a variety of vases and in a number of colour palettes and can be scaled up or down depending on the couple’s budget.

French Provincial

This wedding had three areas all requiring styling – the ceremony, the canapés are and finally the reception. The venue in Bowral had a touch of an old world feeling making it perfect for a French Provincial theme. The ceremony was hosted in the garden where simple white chairs were accented with babies breath pew ends, and feature arrangements standing on plinths and urns stood at the front to frame the couple. A cream signage table and chair set with a babies breath arrangement completed the look for this lovely ceremony.

For the canapé area white luxe cocktail tables and stools were scattered along with French provincial lounge pods to offer ample seating for guests to relax and enjoy drinks in style.

Finally for the reception elegant white flowers were styled in cut glass and clear glass vases on top of a mirror base with a mirrored table number. Each vase had a single type of white flower including sweet peas, tulips, ranunculus and hyacinth. Cut glass charger plates completed the look along with light brown cross back chairs provided by the venue. We love the clean white and green colour palette that compliments the beautiful views, and ties in well with the venues existing décor. french provincial wedding

Great Gatsby

This wedding channelled Great Gatsby glamour perfectly! Inspired by the opulence of the 1920’s this wedding took place at the Cell Block Theater in Sydney. The ceremony featured a wedding arch dripping in luscious blooms accented with pearl strands and crystal drops. Antique styled limewash tiffany chairs with beautiful pew ends lined a pristine cream carpet runner completing this elegant look.

For the reception 10 arm palais chandeliers were hung in the beautiful sandstone venue along with a canopy of twinkling fairy lights. Latte jacquard tablecloths offered a premium base on each table which was further styled with cut glass charger plates, a mirror base, and a large feature vase of white ostrich feathers with feature white orchids. great gatsby inspired reception
