4 Ways to Add Vintage Inspiration to Your Bridal Style


As the saying goes, “Something Old, Something New…”. Incorporating something from the past and adding that classic romance to your present wedding day bliss is an enduring bridal tradition.

Adding a touch of the past can evoke the glamour and elegance of a bygone era, in addition to capturing the sentiment of cherished family memories.

 Vintage inspired wedding decor and bridal gowns have been a popular trend over the last few years. We saw  the 1920s era and The Great Gatsby become a popular wedding theme.  We are now seeing more brides reach back into the past for a more general nod to vintage style as opposed to a more specific Gatsby look.

Here are 4 stunning ways to add a little vintage inspiration to your bridal look.

1. Vintage Jewelry for the Wedding Day.

Jewelry is always an easy way to bring some vintage flare to your bridal style.

Whether it’s incorporating an heirloom locket from your grandmother’s jewelry box or getting some new vintage inspired earrings to wear for the day, your bridal jewelry can be that “Something Old” on your wedding day.

2. Vintage inspired Bridal Hairstyles.You don’t have to go completely retro with your bridal hairstyle and wear 1940s victory rolls, but a nod to the elegance of the past can add the vintage wedding inspiration look and feel that you want to include in your bridal style.

A low chignon or soft pinned up curls can bring vintage appeal to your wedding day look.

3. Make Up with a retro touch.

A retro cat-eye or a pop of a rosy color on the lips can add the perfect amount of vintage to your bridal look without feeling too overdone or kitchy.

Channel your inner Sophia Loren or Princess Grace with a classic bridal make-up look.

4. Bridal Shoes with vintage appeal.

Classic glamour is always a nice addition to any bridal look and with a gorgeous pair of vintage inspired heels, that classic glamour is sure to make for a stunning moment.

Vintage inspired bridal shoes not only have the retro appeal but they also tend to be lower in heel height, which is nice for the bride who plans to dance the night away.
