24 Vintage Wedding Resources to Share With Your Customers

Vintage-style weddings are one of the most popular themes for 2018. Strictly speaking, a vintage theme is styled around turn-of-the-century antiques and Victorian details. But, the definition of “vintage wedding” has expanded over time, and now includes options from the 30’s, 40’s, and even 50’s.

Today’s weddings often break the old-fashioned rules by fusing a second theme with vintage. For example, beach vintage and rustic vintage themes are gaining popularity.

The style is also referred to as “throwback” or “antique.” It’s often confused with the retro-themed weddings, which represent different eras like the 70’s and 80’s.
