I don’t really understand what you mean by an “old fashioned themed wedding.”  Light pink and mint green are a classic combination, but so are a lot of things- there’s no 1 ‘old fashioned’ way.

With the colors and bowties, it sounds like you’re describing a very preppy, spring, southern wedding.  Check out Southern Weddings Magazine (iloveswag.com) for inspiration.

@ChristineMw:  I think you are meaning more vintage right?

Pink and mint are not necessarily “old fashioned” maybe vintage…..very pretty combo together thou!

My pinterest board has some of the things you mentioned. Not trying to get in a shameless plug, but it’s sort of the same thing we’re going for, although our colors are primarily gold/blush.

We’re using garden roses, milk glass, teacups. The venue is a Victorian house and there is a barn on property as well.

@ChristineMw:  You gotta join Pinterest and mine their Weddings section.  You can get a lot of visual inspiration for your vintage wedding by searching, pinning, and liking posts.  Pins link back to websites, so you can get more information based on your vision that way.  I’m a very image-driven person, so if you work more with pictures, Pinterest is an incredible tool that can help you identify the elements you love and begin shaping your wedding.

OP – what, exactly, do you mean by “old fashioned”? 1960’s hippy? Victorian English? Midevil Goth? The trendy thing with weddings at the moment is early 20th century Americana. But “old fahsioned” could really mean anything so you need to narrow that down.

Also, since other people are using the term vintage, I’m going to throw in my 2 cents about that term as well. I think people use the term vintage way too much in the wedding world. Pink and mint are not vintage (generally colors aren’t associated with a specific time period). Not even tan suits, really. Maybe bowties. Mason jars as decoration are definately not vintage. Or flowers made out of fabric. Or burlap table runners. Or yarn wrapped around anything. Or strips of fabric as background decor. These are not historical decoration ideas. You never see this stuff in pictures of actual weddings from the 30s, or whatever time period you’re going for. Sorry for the rant. Just had to get it out of my system.

OP – just go look on pinterest. You’ll probably find what you’re looking for.
