A brief history of vintage weddings
At Blue Fizz Events we’re well known for our love of vintage!
Many couples are opting for vintage style weddings, but there’s more to it than bunting and lace. A turn of the century cotton lace dress, tweed suits and trestle tables suggest festival chic while May poles with cascading ribbons and stalls to entertain your guests are a reminder of the local county fair.
In recent years the vintage styles preferred by modern couples have been heavily influenced by films such as The Great Gatsby, with a glamorous Deco inspired look and champagne cocktails! Then the fashion for period dramas introduced the Downton Abbey factor, bringing in the sumptuous 30s and Art nouveau gowns. The liquid lines and muted shades are perfect for Boho weddings with laid back styling and barefoot brides.
The classic vintage Tea Party look stays strong and enjoys a nod to the 1950s with bold colours, English roses and Prom style dresses. Live bands and photo booths help give energy to the day with a modern twist.
With our love of nostalgia for days gone by and the romance of the way things were, vintage is here to stay as it offers so much inspiration. Our passion and knowledge of history and current vintage trends are key to us being able to help create stunning backdrops and settings for any event with attention to detail at every turn.
