I associate Vintage with a certain/specific era of time. For me if I were to have a ‘Vintage’ themed wedding it would be a celebration that incorporated great décor & apparel detail from – – um, lets say the 1940’s or something…Remember this is just an example of what it is to me Wink

People are hopping on the vintage bandwagon whether it actually is vintage or not, but only because it’s the “in” thing to do. In any other context, they would be called out for being fraudulent. Vintage defines any decor/fashion from any past decade that is not part of the current modern timeframe. A great example is Mad Men. It’s quite obvious that nothing there is modern by 2000’s standards. Even the 80s and 90s are vintage.

I agree with jackie-o. I associate vintage with a certain era. A lot of people have jumped on this eclectic, rustic thing and are calling it vintage.

To me, the SMP wedding that you’re talking about is vintage mainly because of the color palette–the muted, dusty pinks. It looked almost faded and had that dreamy romantic quality that I think is par for the course with all the “vintage” weddings that are popular now. Maybe the delicate lace detailing on the table cards or on her dress also contributed. But I don’t think it’s the result of actually having vintage objects at the wedding; it’s more about the way it was photographed and the “look” they wanted to get across.

i like to call my wedding “vintage inspired” instead of vintage because i know that a lot of the main details weren’t vintage, but had that feeling. like my dress, it’s new but has a vintage feel. however, we got married at a historic inn which really helped with the feeling we were going for. i used different things from family members in the wedding- grandma’s jewelry, his great grandma’s ering, part of mom’s dress to wrap my flowers, and carried a family bible. we also used old family wedding photos for our table numbers.

I agree with artbee- I like to think of mine as vintage/rustic-inspired, even though my dress is new and my bridesmaid dresses aren’t exactly vintage-y. But I am planning on incorporating the milk glass vases, old family photos, putting my mom’s and my FMIL’s wedding dresses on display, and incorporating a few other things to get that feel.

I don’t care what I call it, all I know is what I like!! 🙂
