We had a “Southern Charm” theme, with a more modern/fresh style but definitely some vintage touches. One of my favorite details was how we used my grandma’s antique Ball jars as a pathway:

My cousin had a beautiful vintage-y wedding in which all the china, silverware, drink pitchers, etc. were from antique shops, so it was all mismatched and shabby chic – I loved it!

I am not totally sure what you mean by southern vintage.  I am having a more vintage inspried wedding and it will be in the south (as I am southern).  I am incorporating family herilooms into parts of my wedding.  One thing I really wanted for my wedding, but it was out of season in the fall, is magnoila flowers.  In our family we used these to decorate all the when I was younger.  Another thing that are more traditional that many southerns do is use a family bible either instead of a bridal bouquet.  Other than the classic feel of the southern weddings I have been to the real feeling of the south comes across in the food to me.

I love all the ideas so far especially the hanging mason jars! Another idea is to do canned jams or canned honey for your wedding favors. I’ve seen this before and it seems like a very cute idea plus it seems like this would go perfect for your theme! Also, don’t forget the sweet tea!!! No southern event should be without it’s sweet tea! ๐Ÿ™‚

@lulu mae: We had homemade jam for our favors ๐Ÿ™‚ They were also our escort cards.

I agree that using family traditions/heirlooms gives something a Southern feel. 

@acharlestonbride: We mini-mooned in Charleston! It was wonderful! Have you spent a lot of time there?

I like daniellemybell’s idea of using mismatched china, silver, etc. Do you have any silver or china in your family you could use? Not only would it be gorgeous, it’d have sentimental value!

 

Also, what about having your BMs carry parasols? I’m not sure if that’s the look you’re going for, but I thought this was cute:

We did mismatched china at our wedding and it was the hit of the party!  Here are some pics.
