Vintage is the New Glam
Get ready to raid grandma’s closet! Everything old is new again! Vintage is the new glam for the 2014 bride. Modern brides are finding inspiration in the “flapper” style from the roaring twenties, (think Great Gatsby). Sexy is definitely “in” when it comes to hairstyles. Daring brides are bringing the “pin-up girl” (from back in the day) back to life. Something that never seems to get old is lace. Brides love lace! You will find it on everything from invitations to the bridal gown. Dramatic veils are back too, as well as cap sleeve gowns, fur wraps, and hair embellishments. Feathers are also being thrown back into the mix for 2014. Even grooms are joining the act, choosing colorful bowties instead of the traditional black neck tie.
There is just something romantic about incorporating something important from your past into your special day. Many brides are including family heirlooms in their reception décor, adding a personal touch to their big day. Something else that is very big is the use of retro movie marquees. Brides have brought them back as part of a vintage lighting theme for the reception.
