PLANNING any wedding can be a stressful time in any couple's life but when it comes to choosing the perfect theme you can't go wrong with an old classic.
A popular and romantic choice these days is the old-world vintage theme.
A classic vintage wedding automatically evokes a sense of romance from an era that has long passed.
Brides are dressed elegantly in lace, grooms are impeccably tailored and the venue is often magical to the eye of the beholder.
The vintage theme is all about creating a sense of comfort and intimacy that bride, groom and all guests will enjoy.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when creating your own special vintage wedding:
■ Make sure the dress fits properly; there's no point buying a 100-year-old dress if it doesn't make you look stunning.
■ A bouquet of vintage flowers is one of the best ways to tie the whole theme together and will provide the ceremony with colour and life.
■ Keep a look out for vintage accessories at your local charity shops, antique stores and second-hand websites.
You might find a bargain in the least expected places.
■ Choosing the right photographer is essential because you will be left with the photos and happy memories for a lifetime.
Remember when it comes to generating the perfect vintage wedding it's all about the romance, elegance and old-world items.
