@MarryTheNight24:  Garden roses would be a lovely choice,  They’re a loose blossom and have a lovely old fashioned look.  You could do a variety of milk glass containers for your centerpieces so it looked almost as if they’d been made from a garden rather than a more formal uniform style of floral containers.

I agree that garden roses would look beautiful. I would stay away from calla lillies, orchids, and some of the more exotic flowers because those used to be much more difficult to obtain and were uncommon for weddings in the past. But there isn’t one “vintage” variety of flowers… If you’ve chosen a soft color palette, then soft muted flowers would look beautiful. Especially if you choose a hand-tied bouquet, something less rigid and structured than the modern bouquets. Our wedding is vintage-inspired (it’s at an old historic B&B) and here were some of my inspiration pics:

 

clematis vine

 

.

 

perfect.    garden roses, spray roses, ranunculus, snap dragons, seeded euc, white hypericum berries, scabiosa pods. skip the hydrangea.

 

mmm.    clematis vine, lady moon roses, sahara roses, astrantia, silver brunia, seeded euc, white dahlias, and gomphrena (button poms). The bouquet was made during the summer and it was the local flowers like gomphenia, clematis vine, and astrantia and that made the bouquet wispy and airy. The bouquet was photographed by Anne Robert.

 

mmmm yes please!    Eco-pretty Wedding by Merdeka Studios    succulents, green dianthus, ivory garden roses,

 

ranunculi, hydrangeas, dahlias, spray roses, globe thistle, sedum, saw leaf daisy, and the hanging amaranthus

Do you like the idea of brooch bouquets? For my wedding I did roses with vintage brooches mixed together. I agree with the others that garden roses would look beautiful with a mix of greenery.

Peonies I think would also look great, white ostrch feathers could also give it a vintage feel, and wrapping the handle in lace, just depends on what you like!

That would be a great idea to use the lace from your mom’s wedding gown, it could be your “something old” too if you wanted 🙂

You totally described our wedding. We were married in an Italian renaissance mansion with ivory, gold champagne and blush pink as our colors.

We had a vintage/English countryside thing going on. My flowers were: astrantia, hypnose rose, amnesia rose, waxflowers and anemone. Loved them. They were tied with a vintage ribbon and I had my something old, something new (blue brooch) on the stem.

Oops, forgot – the pink flowers are ranunculus!
