There is something about vintage style that people just love. The opulence and elegance of this time period draws people back over and over again. It is one of the most popular choices for wedding themes and, with the right vintage wedding flowers, the bridal party and the event will be absolutely impeccable.
The perfect flowers
When choosing vintage wedding flowers, you want to think of blooms that are rich in texture. In other words, you want blooms that have plenty of petals and ruffles. You want full-looking flowers and large ones at that. You will not need many of them, but they do need to make a statement. Roses, ranunculus, peonies, gerbera daisies and dahlias are all excellent examples of the ideal flowers for these types of bouquets and centrepieces.
The right foliage
Foliage is incredibly important when it comes to vintage wedding flowers. Back in those days, the foliage they used played just as important a role as the flowers. They add that natural green to the display as well as a hand-picked look. Eucalyptus is an excellent option because of the shade of green. It is almost a dusty green which works beautifully with the rest of the typical vintage colours.
As previously mentioned, the dusty green of the eucalyptus will provide the perfect backdrop and filler for the arrangement. As for floral colours, it’s good to opt for pastels and light warm colours. Some of the best choices include white, off-white, pale pink or peach and even some hints of lilac or blue. The colours should be very subtle for an authentic vintage theme.
Now that you know what types of vintage wedding flowers are most popular and the best colours to use, it’s time to start designing your dream bouquet! The style and size of the bride’s bouquet will depend on her dress. The larger and more elaborate the dress, the larger the bouquet should be. The opposite is also true. If she is wearing a slim-fitting dress, then a smaller bouquet is the better floral accessory.
