100 essential tips for your perfect vintage wedding

01. Love is sweet Sweet tables are becoming increasingly popular at weddings, and it’s not just for kids! A selection of retro candy such as cola cubes and humbugs can make for a sweet nostalgic trip for adults, too. You might want sweets that match your wedding colours, and online retailers sell bulk items this way. Present your sweets in retro sweet jars or piled up on china cake stands or in old-fashioned crystal glasses. Tie some hessian and lace around the serving utensils to complete the look. 02. Game on Garden games are a popular way to fill gaps between different parts of the day, so why not give them a vintage feel?

what you need to know

So, you’ve got engaged (congratulations) and have hurried out to buy this book (you won’t regret it) for all your vintage-wedding needs.

Giving consideration to things you’re going to be organising later on in the wedding-planning process can secure must-have features and bag bargains. Likewise, dealing with the legal bits early on in the process will prevent any unnecessary last-minute stresses. SETTING THE DATE First things first: set a date. This really should be one of the first things you do because a lot depends on it. It might sounds obvious, but it’s amazing how many people get excited about all the details before there’s even…

ask the expert

How soon should couples start planning? We normally anticipate couples will start planning their wedding 12-18 months before their chosen date, when most high-quality suppliers and venues will have reasonable availability.

Get key details like venue, caterer and photographer booked as early as possible. What should you ask a wedding planner that you are thinking of using? We would expect to be asked if we have worked at their chosen venue before and to see pictures or videos of weddings we have planned. We also recommend reading testimonials. Facebook and social media is great for that! Couples like to hear about our awards too – most reputable…

DATE: July 2015 LOCATION: Cockington Village & Bovey Tracey, Devon CARLYE SAYS: “I always wanted a vintage style dress but I thought a real vintage dress would be expensive, difficult to find and wouldn’t fit as I’m quite tall. I tried on some vintage-inspired dresses and they just didn’t feel right. I had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for; full length, long train, hint of colour – a lemon or gold. I was very excited to meet Helena Butler at Heavenly Vintage Brides and was over the moon to find my dress – it was just perfect! It needed a few alterations but Helena’s seamstress Grace was so wonderful, you could never tell. I like to think that whoever wore it before me, had a long and happy marriage…
