Floral inspiration for a vintage style wedding

31 Jul 2013

​The current trend for vintage style is influencing everything from home interiors to high street fashion and weddings are no exception.

For some brides a vintage style wedding evokes images of classic Downton Abbey country house style.

For others it might be the relaxed beauty of a theme inspired by the meadow beauty of an English garden.

This meadowy bouquet was personalised with a beautiful cameo brooch which belonged to the bride’s grandmother.

Use lengths of raffia to tie casually around the handles of flower posies and Cath Kidston inspired country style bunting.

A classic camper van is the perfect vintage touch. We dressed this one for the occasion with a beautiful heart-shaped floral arrangement.

A vintage theme really is something everyone can make their own

Whichever one of these is closest to your idea of vintage wedding style, the recreation of a bygone era offers the perfect opportunity for creativity

Whilst some brides extend the vintage look to every detail of their wedding, others use heritage touches to enhance a traditionally elegant theme.

A family heirloom such as a much loved brooch or piece of jewellery can be incorporated into floral arrangements to add a personal touch and a hint of vintage charm.

We can also add coloured buttons for a unique twist on the vintage theme.

At Twisted Willow we specialise in creating beautiful vintage inspired floral arrangements and bridal bouquets.

Colour is a perfect way of evoking a classic look. Dusky pink amnesia roses make an ideal choice for vintage bridal bouquets and the combination of soft pinks and burgundy work particularly well for Spring weddings.

Simple ways of adding a touch of vintage to a bouquet include using coloured ribbon or a wide band of pale vintage fabric or lace.

Buttonholes of mixed flowers are perfect for a vintage theme.

Hydrangea are ideal blooms for vintage weddings.

Give bouquets and posies a quirky touch of individuality by incorporating a handmade butterfly.

With careful choice of colour, a touch of individuality and plenty of imagination it’s possible to create a unique floral style for a vintage wedding that’s full of personal touches.
