Well, I haven’t gotten married yet, and have no pictures.  Sad!  But I’m having a vintagey wedding, very loosely themed around the mid to late 1930s.  I love Fred and Ginger movies, Hot Jazz, and dancing.  We’re going with pincurls, a live band, an antique venue, and lace details.  Also, lots of tea-stained stationary, chalkboards, cream linens, silver lanterns and gray industrialish art deco accents, and some stuff from my apartment (this is already my style).  I’ve got an antique suitcase for cards, old pictures of my family from the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.

I can’t wait to put it all together and top it off with satin ribbon and twinkly lights!

If you need some extra 30’s inspiration, you should definitely watch Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day – its GORGEOUS and gives you a color perspective that missed in more authentic films.  If you want to span mutiple decades, you can canvas a few decades by picking something stylistic – like a song, or jazz, or Hollywood glamour, or eclectic vintage.  Swing music, for example, can take you from the 20s to the early 60s (it starts with Charleston and stops with be bop).  You can do a 30s-50s supper club styling too!

Or you can definitely pair a few eras as well that have stylistic overlap: the 20s and the 60s go for shor dresses with straight shapes, dramatic eye makeup, and short ahir, the 30s and the 70s share an affinity for wrap dresses and capelets, the 40s and the 80s got for slightly frizzier curls and broad shoulders, and so on.

Mine was Vintage/Rustic but more so vintage. 

I loved how my hair and veil were.   I decided to go with pin curls in the front, then she set my birdcage veil to wrap around the back of my head instead of over my face, which went well because it actually bothered my eyes

I did kind of a shabby chic/vintage wedding. Let’s see if I can find my recap link. The wedding skirt was totally recycled-made from vintage wedding dresses and veils. The decor was all old pieces I found and refurbished with paint/pearls etc. Everything was lace, pale colors, tulle, etc. I would have LOVED a period wedding. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/dw-beach-and-ttd-finally-some-sneaks-very-pic-heavy

@RexManningDay:  Oh wow love the colors!!! And I think vintage themes work better when you put a nod to them with a fresh twist instead of trying to replicate.  Are you going to serve some fabulous cocktails from that era?

Love it!
