Record Your Wedding The Vinyl Way Monday, Jul 16 2012 

How classy would you look with a vinyl theme throughout your vintage swing wedding. Here are a couple necessities to pull off the job just right….

Wedding invitations!

Cake stands!

Add a little rhythm to your pallet.

Cupcakes or cakes are now the musical dessert for your vintage wedding.

Cuff Links

Earrings

Vinyl themed ties for the groomsmen…

And some vinyl wedding favors for all your guests.

This will definitely help you to cover the ‘something old’ category for your vintage swing wedding. If you have access to it, why not have a DJ play vinyls at your wedding for an authentic feel.

Vintage Wedding Clutch Friday, Jul 6 2012 

Add to your bridal beauty. Find a vintage clutch for your vintage swing theme wedding. Beaded clutches were all the rage in the day.

Vintage Parasol Friday, May 25 2012 

Why not have a vintage parasol at your wedding. Perfect way to keep cool and chic during a summer wedding outdoors. Now you can still get married at the beach, and not get sunburned!

A few finds for your wedding….

Turquoise vintage lace parasol

Pink lace vintage umbrella

Hand painted vintage umbrella

All of these were tracked down on an ebay auction.

Parasols could be used for any occasion. So purchasing one is an awesome idea, but if you only want one for that special day. I really like Bella Umbrella which rents out vintage and elegant umbrellas for your wedding date.

 

Happy Flapper Friday everyone!

 

1940’s Dress and Veil Friday, May 11 2012 

1940’s Wedding gown with an extra long train, found it’s matching head piece too….

The dress and veil look like they would be so light and airy. You wouldn’t have to worry about sweating the small stuff at the reception.

This pair was found on ebay.

Vintage Flower Brooch Wednesday, May 2 2012 

A diamond lasts forever… and ever… and ever. This vintage brooch has gorgeous detailing both with the indentations, shaping, and diamond placements. This would make a great dress accessory or the groom could wear this instead of a live flower on his suit jacket. Another way to keep those memories as lasting as the diamonds on this brooch.

Part of a collection found on David Webb’s Site. David has a great selection, and has been making jewelry since the 30’s.

Bow-ties or Neck-ties??? Tuesday, May 1 2012 

So many vintage looks include a dapper gentleman dressed to the nines. Both a bow-tie and a neck-tie will get the job done and have you appearing savvy, saucy, and many other adjectives that start with ‘s’.

Which one would you prefer? and possibly have you dressed to the…. tens!

Kind of like your grandma's quilt, but better.

Great bow-ties for a spring wedding!

Personally, I'm a sucker for paisley

These are so precious and delicate. They would go well with a vintage lace wedding gown.

Four options that would look great in any season

Darling dots for the groomsmen

Vintage ties may come in different shapes and sizes

The bow-ties below are part of a vintage collection from Beau Ties Ltd.

These would go great for any formal occasion

My personal favorite… Taken from The Pastry Studio.

Bow-tie required no longer excludes the cake

So my question for my blog readers would be:

Bow-tie or Neck-tie?

Pattern or solid color??

If you had to pick two ties from above, which two caught your fancy???

Cake icing ties are a valid choice… just saying.   🙂

That’s one smoking tie! Thursday, Apr 26 2012

Here’s a tie from the 40’s for the groom to wear. This has managed to escape PETA’s attention for years now. Give him a silk tie with a funny character for your wedding, it’s bound to be a riot.

Tie the knot Wednesday, Apr 25 2012 

The bride shouldn’t be the only one wearing vintage at the wedding. Find some vintage ties with elegant detailing to them for you or your soon to be man.

I particularly like the 1940’s and their style of clothing. Find out which decade suits you best so you can suit up.

Vintage Brooch Bouquets Wednesday, Apr 25 2012

I like this idea a lot because it’s a bouquet that will last forever. Get a bunch of vintage brooches, and make your own bouquet. It’s super easy. Although I would suggest finding something else to use for the bouquet toss unless your wedding has great insurance!
