Even if your mom’s wedding dress is too outdated for your taste, hosting a period-themed wedding is a great idea! From sassy invitation designs to intricate decor ideas, here are a few tips for planning your ode-to-the-past wedding!
Get inspired by some of your favorite movies to pinpoint a certain time period or era you’d like to channel on your wedding day. From the wild West and roaring 20s to a full-blown renaissance revival or imperial Russia-inspired celebration, it’s important to pick a specific time period and research the fashion and interior design trends of that era.
Start with the invitations – Putting your invites together is a great way to decide on a color scheme and set the mood for the venue. If you’re going for an art deco, 1920s vibe, a chic palette of black, white and gold featured on the Black Pocket invitation may be a great design option for you and your fiancé. The beautiful monogram encasing is ornate yet simplistic, while the interior of the card is reminiscent of an invitation one might associate with Mr. Jay Gatsby.
Tiny details matter – Use place cards and table numbers to tie back into the original design of your invitations to pull the wedding theme together. For instance, the Gold Table Number Cards match the gold print on the invitations and the Glittering Beads Flutes mimic the monogram design on the front of the card.
Just remember, it’s the little details that can either make or break a wedding theme! So don’t overlook the small stuff, no matter how tedious it may seem.
