i really like this wedding featured on here a few months back: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/03/27/married-in-montana-all-in-the-details-part-2-of-2/#more-88480 

i love the details of the vintage mason jars, classic coke bottles, DIY stationary, and homemade favors. it has more of a aged-rustic feel, but you could remix some of these detail ideas in your wedding.

if your town/city has any cool vintage shops (i wouldnt suggest thrift stores cause they are SO hit or miss…but the more expensive vintage stores that only carry the best finds….) get to searching! my FI got his suit from a vintage store for under $100 and its so freakin cool! plus, you can look for unique jewelry, hairpeices, and other accessories there too.

Also you can try sticking to certain fabrics or materials that stir up a vintage feel…like lace…or brass…if they appear a lot in your wedding they will create the vibe youre looking for.

just some ideas off the top of my head…hope that helps 🙂

I am also going vintage. mason jars go a long way or course and nothing beats candles. We’ve found that paper lanterns or the 36” mylar balloons add a ton of color for a small price. Also bunting flags could be pretty. Sorry, only got what’s gone through my head for my own wedding. Just posted pictures if you’d like to see.
