What is it about a vintage wedding that makes the day so magical and unforgettable? How does nostalgia for a bygone era make looking forward to the future together so much more fun? Whether you embrace the spirited elegance of the 1920s, the Hollywood glamour of the 1940s, or the transformative style of the 1960s, you can find endless ways to weave that theme through your wedding. Maybe you’ve always loved the music or fashions from a certain period, or maybe you got inspired by a vintage engagement ring. How you use that theme is entirely up to you. Once you pick an era, the fun begins.

A vintage engagement ring, a themed announcement, or even dancing to bygone beats, and serving your granny’s treasured recipes at the reception- the possibilities are endless. You can start with your invitations. Some fonts really signal certain periods in time, and you can also use images and designs that reflect that period. Stag and hen nights are all about playful fun, and your theme can add to that. Instead of matching t-shirts, what if everyone found clothes or accessories from the era of your theme?

WE LISTED A FEW REASONS THE ‘VINTAGE’ LOOKS CAN MAKE YOUR SPECIAL DAY EVEN MORE MAGICAL.

1.  Your wedding day is a deeply personal experience, and a vintage theme can help you convey who you are and who you are together. Maybe you fell in love studying history together at college, or at a swing dance class. Maybe you love to crank up the sounds of the sixties at home. Whatever era in history speaks to you, you can use it to make your day really, truly yours. Current trends and styles may seem appealing for its novelty, but you should embrace what best reflects your personal style. That will most certainly never go out-of-fashion!

2.  Everything around us today is mass produced. Wedding guests can only hope no one else shows up in the same dress, and we all know exactly what to expect from the menu. A wedding should be more special than that. When you choose to go with a vintage theme you’re making it all about the distinctive details which will make your ceremony stand out. Your big day should be as unforgettable for your guests as it is for you.

3.  BY CHOOSING SOMETHING ‘VINTAGE’ YOU ARE CHOOSING SOMETHING THAT HAS WITHSTOOD THE TEST OF TIME. YOU SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR ARTEFACTS OF TIMELESS BEAUTY, UNDIMMED BY PASSING TRENDS AND FADS. A VINTAGE ENGAGEMENT RING CAN EASILY TURN TO BE THE CHERRY ON TOP OF THE CAKE YOU WERE LOOKING FOR.

By getting married, you are announcing to the world that your love is timeless – and what better way to portray that than with a unique-looking, vintage ring? These are one-of-a-kind pieces that have a singular story behind them. Nothing can beat the personality of a vintage engagement ring, and whether you prefer a more traditional style or a quirky design, you are bound to find ‘the one’.

4.  Your wedding dress can be a statement piece. If you have found a vintage engagement ring, you know that buying a rare pre-loved piece can be an adventure that results in something truly unique and distinctive. You could buy a dress with lines and details inspired by the era you love. Dress and ring can complement each other, and finding the right ones will turn your special day into something even more extraordinary.

Whichever era you prefer, it should always reflect who you are. Going with a vintage wedding theme is a bold choice, but the uniqueness of the ceremony can hardly be beaten by any conventional reception. The importance of finding ‘the one’ is also true when it comes to the pieces that will accompany you for life, and there is no better place to start than by finding the perfect engagement ring.
