My sister is getting married and has her heart set on a bespoke wedding and yesterday she dragged me into her search for vintage wedding ideas.
Rather than just go to a bridal store a pick up a wedding dress “off the shelf” (what’s wrong with that?), my sister has decided she wants a retro style wedding as she is quite “in to” the whole shabby chic, vintage home scene. So she came round, we had a coffee and started searching.
I came across a lot of wedding blogs and, to my surprise, plenty of blogs were even focussing on vintage weddings. I did not realise there was such of a market out there for this stuff; I thought it was just my quirky sister. You don’t have to spend a fortune either, as from what I could gather, there is a lot of recycling/upcycling going on and plenty of sites are out there if you are looking for vintage wedding ideas on a budget.
One of the vintage bridal sites my sister and I came across was Vintage Wedding Store, this seems to act as an “exclusive” directory for some retro wedding stores. My sister has not bought anything yet and I don’t think I was much help in her search; she is getting me out at the weekend to go and look at some bridal shows instead!
