Out with the old, and in with the... old? That's what celebrities Annie Lennox, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, and Matthew McConoughy seemed to think at least. Celebrities and their wedding planners have their fingers on the pulse of trends in fashion, and weddings are no exception!
No wonder vintage themed weddings debuted as such a hit last year. This chic remake of the 1920's era is all about style and grace. From the decor to the attire, an antique look is the perfect choice for your wedding day.

Colors and Decor
The most popular and traditional-looking vintage wedding tones have been rose pinks and champagne beiges. It almost brings to mind the sepia-tones of an old photograph.
Damask, chandelier silhouettes, and love birds are great choices for prints and design to add some dimension.

Wedding gown designers are realizing the popularity of this trend in vintage styles and have created some stunning options for you. Lace is one of the main ingredients. Overlays of gently hanging delicate lace over satin are truly feminine and sweet.

Some designers are offering a variety of shades in champagne and rose tones. Or you can accent with a belt or sash of these antique tones to add a little splash of color.

This is also a great opportunity to wear gloves. Wrist length, elbow, or full length gloves can be the perfect touch depending on the style of your dress.

Long hair is swept up or back in a relaxed or loose style. Soft waves or hanging pieces can add texture. Chignons at the base of the neck are a great idea for the sophisticated look. For shorter hair, cropped bobs and bangs are the most authentic to the era.

Headpieces and Veils
Your choice of veil or headpiece can really set-off your entire look. From head bands with feathers and large decorative or jeweled pieces, to beaded caps, there are many ways to be sure to look the part of a vintage bride. These options are great for shorter hair.

For the traditional veil, long and sweeping yet soft looks are more true to the time period of the 1920's. Choose something that lays closer to the head without much height or layers that stand out too full.
For the groom and groomsmen, don't forget the choices in hats that help to pull their look into the overall theme as well. You can go old-time gangster style with white bands, or simple fedoras. For formal weddings, top hats and tails like something you'd see on the Titanic are a great choice.
