Getting Married? Need Engagement Advice? Listen up.
Everything old is all the rage, and a vintage wedding is not only in style, but truly romantic. Something about the treasures of yesteryear suggest a love that will endure. You can make every detail of your special day uniquely personalized by including handmade decorations that reflect the whimsy of an earlier time. I love everything on offer at the etsy shop jolieenrosevintage, but my favorite is this lovely cake topper that will tell your guests that the bride and groom are over the moon!
The detailed band on this men’s wedding ring also has a romantic vintage vibe.
A carefully selected gift for the bride, or even a bridesmaid can become a keepsake forever. As the old saying goes: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and doesn’t this delightful cameo from Silver Trumpet have all of that at once?
This exquisite blue sapphire and diamond ring contains all of these time-tested elements too.
Of course the details of your wedding gown are really where you can make your vintage style statement. I love the black trim on this custom-made lacy gown from puresomething.com, perfectly accented by the chic headpiece and jewel-colored bouquet. So elegant and at the same time so distinctive- the perfect look for the bride who wants to create her own beautiful moment in time.
The sparkle on your finger can also link your love to the beauty of a bygone era. I love this wedding ring with ruby gemstones- like a found treasure from an antique store.
