Vintage weddings are becoming increasingly popular for couples on a budget, but that doesn’t mean it’s becoming any less special. In fact, we’re falling more in love with this vintage wedding theme every single day. We just can’t help ourselves from swooning over the romantic nostalgia of it all, because what’s more romantic than a bit of vintage glam on your wedding day? We’re gonna go ahead and answer that question for you… Nothing! A vintage wedding theme is both regal and rustic, so you might be wondering how the heck you’re supposed to incorporate this wedding trend into your big day. Luckily we’ve done the hard work, so you don’t have to…
Incorporating tea sets into your budget vintage wedding in a must. In fact, we’re gonna make it a Wedding Budgeter law. These delicate teacups and teapots are the epitome of vintage and showcase an adorable, colourful and sophisticated side to your personality. However, these vintage teacups aren’t just for the people who really, really like tea (which is everyone, right?). These tea sets can be used throughout your wedding for various purposes. They can serve as the centrepieces with beautiful flowers potted into them. They can serve as your very own champagne teacup flutes, or you could attach little name tags to the handles as your own place cards. If you don’t want to be stuck with a load of teapots after your wedding, it’s best to hire them from companies such as Big Vintage Teapot. (Hint: They are super duper cool).
In our eyes, vintage is all about taking yourself back to nature and getting rid of all of the mod cons in your life. Or at least for one day. Because of this, more and more people are choosing to have their vintage weddings outside. They might get married under a beautiful floral archway, they may adorn their wedding hair with fresh flowers, and they might even rent out a teepee and get married with the great outdoors right outside of their door/tent flap. Yet, taking it back to nature isn’t all about being outside. This vintage feel can also make its way into your venue. You can decorate your tables with fresh flowers from your garden, you can make your own naked wedding cake, and you can even incorporate fresh produce into your wedding breakfast!
If you really want to get into the vintage mood for your budget wedding, it’s best to get your prop on. The aim of a vintage wedding is to take yourself and your guests back a few years, and incorporating decorations from this era is one of the best ways to transform your modern venue into a vintage one. For the outside, you can invest in some old-school games such as croquet and throw-the-bean-bag-at-the-cans (there must be a better name than that?), and for the inside, you can invest in a few typewriters, record players, birdcages, watering cans, pearls, lace and more. There’s no such thing as ‘too much’ when it comes to vintage.
Were gonna be totally honest here, were obsessed with bunting. This stuff can literally be used for any occasion but is even more special when you get to incorporate it into your big day. Of course, there are all kinds of bunting out there, so it’s up to you what kind of style you want to go for. You could go bright and colorful with checkers and spots. You could go au natural and buy hessian bunting, or you could even get your lace on and add a little sophistication to your vintage budget wedding. The choice is totally yours, but the choice to have bunting or not isn’t yours. It just has to be done.
The vintage wedding theme is one of our favourites, but we bet you didn’t know you could do it on a budget. It’s time to make do and mend, and get your vintage wedding on!

Well, hi there! Thanks for dropping by, earthlings. While I am a writer by trade I like to pride myself on my other quirks. I can rap all of the lyrics to Kanye West’s ‘Homecoming,’ I can eat a whole packet of Oreos in record time, and I can lick my elbow. Oh, I’m also a stickler for luuuuuurve…
