The latest craze right now is any and everything vintage, and there’s a wealth of fabulous ideas for any plus-size bride looking to incorporate this timeless trend into their wedding. What is considered vintage and how can you incorporate it? Well, for starters, consider donning a lace gown, especially those with A-line or empire waist cuts which echo the styles of bygone eras. Subtle embellishments like pearls or sequins can add an old-world charm to your ensemble.

Matching your outfit with classic pearls or art-deco style jewelry can elevate your look even further. If you’re lucky, you might even find a family heirloom or discover an authentic piece in an antique store. Hairstyles can also be a nod to the past, with soft waves, classic updos, or braided crowns. For an added vintage touch, you can accessorize with hairpins or hairpieces that evoke a bygone era.

Incorporating your love for Coke, think about using vintage Coke bottles as unique vases for your centerpieces. You might also set up an old-fashioned Coke cooler, allowing guests to take a trip down memory lane as they grab a cold drink. The decor can be enhanced using lace tablecloths, brass candle holders, and antique dishes. A heartfelt touch might be to hang black and white photos of family weddings from earlier generations, offering a heartwarming connection to the past.

For your venue, selecting places with a vintage charm, like historic mansions, older city buildings, or rustic barns, can set the right mood. Complementing the setting, arriving in a vintage car such as a classic Rolls Royce can make quite the statement. Lastly, the tunes you choose can create the perfect ambiance. Incorporate classics from the ’40s or ’50s to transport your guests to a different time.

In essence, the magic of a vintage-themed wedding lies in the intricate details. Whether you opt for subtle nods or a complete retro experience, ensuring authenticity will create a celebration that’s both memorable and uniquely you.
