IT'S A RETRO WEDDING!!!
For a complete vintage feeling talk to your photographer about the look you want for your pictures, consider renting a vintage photo booth for guests to take pictures to take home for a memento or place disposable cameras on your guests tables so they can leave you a fun surprise.
As a bride your overall look, from the dress to the hair and make up will really help contribute to the retro feeling of your wedding. By adding small details such as 1950's inspired gloves, pearls and a 50's style wedding dress your retro wedding will really come together and will not only put you in the right outfit for your big day but in the right attitude as well! As a bride not only your dress but your hair should reflect the 1950's era, you could take one of the famous hairstyles from the 50's and modernize it to your liking!
The food at your retro wedding can also help to set the scene. Candy and Soda shops were very popular in the 50's, set up stations for your guests such as a candy station or an ice cream station, you could even get a soda fountain. Sticking with the 50's theme consider american classics for the wedding meal. When deciding on the music for your big day consider a 50's style live band or research popular songs from the era for the DJ to play.
The table decor for your 50's vintage wedding can be made up of odds and ends found in antique stores or your families attics. It should be simple but elegant, without spending a fortune!
Of course all the ideas listed can be modernized and altered to your personal liking but I hope some of these ideas got your Retro 50's creative juices flowing!
