Baby I Love You - A Vintage Wedding

Pin It
Central Parque, Havana, my man and I danced wobbily back towards our hotel after sampling the wonderful Daquiri's at Hemingway's.  We stopped and took a seat on a marble bench in Central Parque. I thought my man had slipped off the bench.  But he was on one knee and asked me the most wonderful question - would I Marry him?? I said YES  and our big day is just around the corner.  Almost a year has flown and that special date May 29th is almost here.  The day we celebrate US....

 I wanted to share some of the images and ideas I have come across while looking for our vintage feel big day!

Vegas save the date.....A reminder to friends & family to save the day to help you celebrate....

a special day for a special couple

We're off to Vegas for our big day (we met at the kitsch Elvis Convention, Porthcawl) and chose this song as our 1st dance......

So play the song and enjoy the images

A great image with fab fifties feel wedding dress -loving the vintage vanity case

Shoes!! Us girls can never have too many & the palest pink, the peeptoe, the shoeclip give this beautiful shoe a fab vintage feel. Pretty purse with beautiful embroidered hankie's for those tears of happiness!

Beautiful vintage brooch used as a stunning headpiece.  This image I first discovered on the wonderful wedding blog http://www.lovemydress.net/

Palest pinks & cream Roses making what could be a simple but stunning bridal bouquet, why not entwine with some vintage parcel tie trailing?

An array of headdresses and decorations. Which would you choose to give your outfit the finishing touch? Flowers in the hair for me I think..... see more beautiful creations from jennifer behr

Fabulous 50's feel to this outfit. How would you wear it differently. I would love to wear this dress and the flower in the hair

Beautiful vintage feel heels in Dove Grey......I want these.  Find them at http://www.rachelsimpsonshoes.co.uk/

Something blue? Stunning vintage Norwegian Silver Bracelet.  Love the artistry in this piece, sunray enamelling along with prettiest blue flower detail. Available now, email for details suzie@suziewheatvintage.com

Simple but so effective fresh handpicked flowers sat in clear waterjug, for your garden party wedding?

Cornflower Blue vintage brooch.  Why not use pinned to an Alice band as a simple headress.  Or pinned to a length of vintage lace to make a unique neckpiece....or wrap around your wrist?

Very 50's court shoe with floral adornment....very vintage

& more shoes...Gorgeous vintage detail in the peeptoe and bows.  These are so perfect for my 50's vintage tulle skirt knee length dress

Vintage popping Red Tulle and lace prom dress a perfect dress for the perfect shoes above. Amazing dress to get married in!?

Beautiful side Pearl and Sparkle detail for a vintage headress

I'm still undecided on Alice band with 4-5 of my favourite vintage brooches pinned...or am I going to to do large flowers in my hair??  Taking it over my normal one flower and making it 'wedding' with 2 or 3 large?  Not sure but I love this image with the floral background and the amazing floral headress

Vintage Sea blue glass dropper on french hooks for pierced ears.  Wear hair piled high and allow the light to sparkle as the droppers catch the light

Vintage lace dress worn with simple floral in hair

Another something blue this time in the most lovely 50's tulle prom dress in Cornflower blue

Sea Green stones set in vintage silver.  Vintage Art Deco Bracelet

A big splash of colour.  Vibrant red.  I love how the bride has done the colour block on the dress and added simple white court shoes & added a handheld splash of Coral Peach and kept the hair very simple and unadorned

Tulle ruffles with vintage beaded detail from http://www.jennypackham.com/

A vintage frame used here to frame a poster containing personal messages.  Why not use vintage frames at your wedding party framing a plain poster have marker pens so your guests can record personal messages for the happy couple?

Beautiful low back 20's style wedding dresses. So elegant.

Splashes of red with the fabulous shoes and handpicked blooms give this a 50's vintage feel.

Sweet vintage style purse sequin and pearl encrusted, just big enough to keep your lippie, eyeliner and phone.

I love this vintage hair pin perfect for giving a little sparkle to your hair however you wear it, piled high or down and wavy.

The happy couple share a tender moment....since becoming.....

Mr & Mrs, vintage signs hung from ribbon.

Time for celebrations, make mine a Daquiri!

Jumping for joy!

And now time for the Honeymoon....of course once the party is over. xxx

So what would your perfect wedding look like? Would love to hear from you.... Until the next time...
