I wanted a vintage wedding

Cake designed by Yours Truly 🙂


At the age of 12, I became inspired by my grandmother’s picture. She was gorgeous and she was 20. It was that old vintage feel and era of sophistication. I always wanted to recreate that time of my grandmother’s picture. And so I did with my wedding.

A few years ago I created a DIY themed wedding. Here are some ideas I used with my budget friendly vintage themed wedding. More pictures are available on my Pinterest!

Floral arrangements:

– I used preserved flowers

(They’re 1/2 the cost of fresh flowers and they look aged)

Bouquets:

– I had a Brooch bouquet

(It can always be used as a memoir, as opposed to fresh flowers)

– I made clutch purses for the bridesmaids

(It can be a keepsake as oppose to fresh flowers)

Menu cards

– I created the menu and printed them myself on kraft paper and added a stick on jewel at the top

Groomsmen boutonnière

– Handcrafted by yours truly. I used preserved mini roses and green leaf, bunny grass, and silk ribbon.

Don’t be afraid to get creative!

  1. Can I just say what a beautiful and elaborate wedding it was. Detailed, very rich appeal, just so tastefully done. Beautiful scenery with beautiful people to represent you and the groom. When my time comes, I’ll be requesting your service. Thank you.

    PS…beautiful grandmother, she’s gorgeous. She looks very smart and just classy.
