Vintage styling has always been a popular theme in wedding trends in recent years. Lately we are beginning to see new ideas emerge as vintage style really comes into its own.
Here are the new trends in vintage we see happening over the next 12 months.
Mix 'n' match table shapes and sizes, chairs, linens and vessels.
Keep colors organic and natural, think shades of charcoal, lavender, silver peony, oyster and shell.
Grey is definitely the new black for 2011 while navy blue and deep colors such as honeysuckle are also making waves this year.
We will continue to see the use of fashionable props such as birdcages, typewriters, books, and old window frames in amongst more of a warm, comfortable home like feel.
Say goodbye bunting and polka dots and hello to all things lace, crocheted and cross stitched.
Keep furnishings simple with large wooden banquet style tables, stools, benches or even old cinema chairs.
Ceramic jugs and large pitchers filled with flowers fresh from the garden or glass jars or bottles with individual flower stems can tie in with that mismatched and simple feel.
Popular sites for vintage events are warehouses, barns, estates or farms, art galleries and of course vineyards and be sure to check out Vintage Wares (www.vintagewares.com.au) and the Fancy Tea Company (www.fancytea.com.au) for some fabulous vintage inspiration.
