Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have all had a marvellous week and that you...
Choosing the theme for your wedding can influence all aspects of your big day, and reflect both you and your partner’s interests in a really personal way. Vintage themed weddings are beautiful and often share many elements of the Boho theme.
Creating a vintage wedding theme can be budget-friendly, and is a great sustainable way to reuse and upcycle existing items. It’s also a great way to to tick of your something old and something borrowed, in some cases!
Blending a boho theme with vintage elements can make a unique theme and allows freedom to mix something old with newer vintage inspired pieces. In this article, we will show how to create your dream vintage themed wedding, what to include and where to source original and inspired pieces.
Vintage can often be used to describe anything ‘old’. It is often used to describe anything from the past, things that are used, or ‘hand-me-downs. However, to be considered vintage, as opposed to retro or even antique, it has to do with time.
Vintage specifically relates to the decades between 1920 to 1970. Before this is antique, and more recently is retro. For weddings, taking inspiration from the roaring twenties or swinging sixties will mean you’re having a vintage themed wedding.
Boho weddings take inspiration from the free-spirited sixties and seventies, so it’s easy to see the overlap and similarities. A themed wedding can be subtle, with nods to the bygone era of your choice in your wedding dress, or fully embraced with venue, transport and everything in between.
When infusing vintage or vintage-inspired elements to your wedding, you can go as small or fully-fledged as you and your partner (and your budget) feel comfortable with. Whether you want a floaty seventies wedding dress, or to arrive in a vintage car straight out of a black and white movie, have fun researching and sourcing your vintage props and decor pieces.
Here at Boho Weddings we love all types of weddings from laid back affairs to the more formal celebration. If you are having a relaxed day you may decide to send your invitations via email, your own wedding website, or some simple Invitations. However if you have decided on a formal more traditional day there may be some things you need to be aware of before ordering your wedding stationery. What better way to welcome guests to your wedding than with an invitation that sets the tone for the entire event? Your wedding invitations should be more than just pretty words; they should also reflect the elegance and formality of your event. Here are 5 super cute ideas for formal wedding invitations.
Even though there is no correct way to write a wedding invitation, it’s still important to format your wedding invites correctly. When writing your formal invitation, follow these rules of etiquette.
The event (reception, ceremony, etc.) should be listed first on your invitation; all events are traditionally capitalized; there is one blank line between each piece of information on a single side of an invitation card; include only necessary details on the wedding invitations. Anything beyond names and locations is considered extraneous.
Also, if you have a full address printed on your envelope, you do not need to repeat it again in your invitation. Just add and reply card enclosed at the bottom of your envelopes if you wish for guests to respond with their RSVPs.
Finally, remember that postcards can also be used as wedding invitations. If you want something simple yet elegant for your big day, postcards might just be what you need! These cards are usually slightly smaller than normal cards and often come with perforated edges so they can easily be torn off and mailed back.
Be sure to include your name, return address, date of the event, time of reception or ceremony, location, and any other pertinent information on the front of your postcard. In addition to being super cute, they’re also cost-effective since they don’t require envelopes or postage.
Getting engaged is a pretty special, it’s the start of your life together as a couple and the promise of many life adventures to come. But before you get engaged you need to chose the right engagement ring. An engagement ring is a special piece of jewellery that symbolizes your commitment to your better half. It’s also a symbol of your love and dedication. Most people dream of the perfect engagement ring. The one that sparkles catches the light just right and is unique.
But with so many options, it can be hard to decide on the right ring. One way to make your ring stand out from the rest is to choose a unique gemstone.
Here are eight beautiful and unique gemstones you can use for your engagement ring.
While many beautiful gemstones could be used in an engagement ring, diamonds are still the most popular choice. Diamonds are incredibly durable, which means they can withstand everyday wear and tear. They’re also very sparkly, which helps to make a ring look more special. In addition, diamonds are associated with love and commitment, making them the perfect symbol for an engagement ring.
The sapphire is another excellent choice for an engagement ring. For starters, the stone is incredibly durable. In addition, sapphires are available in a wide range of colours, from classic blue to deep green. And because they’re less expensive than diamonds, sapphires offer great value for the price.
Most importantly, though, sapphires have a long history associated with love and commitment. In many cultures, the stone was believed to protect couples from infidelity and promote fidelity within marriage. For all of these reasons, the sapphire makes an ideal choice for an engagement ring.
