Vintage fall wedding theme plays with subtle colors. The sweetest pink can be paired with the murkiest brown. It is a wedding where taupe can look as elegant and classic as the typical white. Where olive just exudes absolute warmth with the color orange.
Pulling off a vintage fall wedding needs extra care with colors. If you want to settle for simplicity yet a grown-up version, match any fall color with white. It’s the classic style. It releases purity out of earth colors. Use shades and hues present in nature. Prepare a banquet using antique-looking tables pulled out from grandma’s kitchen. Use white or off-white table runners that go past the edges and tie both ends with a ribbon lace.
Flower centerpieces are best showcased in ceramic vases that look like hundred years old – an item that normally comes out from Pandora’s Box. You can even use old and slightly chipped teapots for a vintage drama.
Set the venue outdoors. A garden or woods vintage wedding will definitely collide best with fall season. As the trees and bushes change their colors, select shades of yellows and oranges will look rustically jolly and upbeat.
Make your vintage fall wedding unique. Serve food of laid back colors. Orange and pastel drinks atop mahogany colored tables amongst white vintage platters are perfect infusion. Keep the long stem of the flowers and gather them in bouquet. They will look definitely bucolic as wedding bouquet or venue decoration.
Appreciate the vintage guy in your dad’s garage and use his old school Volkswagen Kombi in orange. The favorite off-white color during its fashionable days is also great as wedding car. And before that newly-wed getaway, highlight the theme by doing after wedding photo shoot. Let the bride do a relaxed pictorial with the bridesmaids and flower girls. Make sure that they still have their vintage colored halo of flowers or ribbons or butterflies on top of their head.
Sneak more vintage elegance to the venue by using old suitcases as blackboards showing the direction to the place. Lay them on wooden tables adorned with baby’s breath or white roses hanging on the sides.
