Victorian Vintage Weddings
A Victorian vintage wedding held in Destin, Florida is the perfect way to celebrate your special day. It is a classic and timeless style of elegance combined with the old fashioned to give an aura of sheer romance about the whole day.
Start with the wedding dress before you go any further with your décor. A Victorian dress is a work of art, in cream, white or ivory and usually made in lace. Consider wearing your hair half up with a cathedral length veil and consider the possibility of flowers in your hair. Ask your Destin Wedding Planner about flower choices specific to this era. You should use flowers of light pastel colors, like lilacs, pale yellows, pinks and greens and don’t use bold colors. Use flowers such as peonies, roses and hydrangeas. One place to look for unique décor is to try flea markets and antique shops. The use of vintage style decorations from thrift stores or online sources can help to create just the look and mood of the perfect Victorian styled wedding. But make sure that everything works together or it may turn out tacky.
Crystal chandeliers are a great option for the Victorian wedding, with candelabras or crystal vases for the flowers. Lace is also a must! You can use lace linens, doilies or drape lace around the tables for an extra touch of the era. You may even consider having your photographer doing a themed Victorian wedding album documenting your day. Your Destin wedding planner can arrange this for you along with your transportation. If you are lucky you may be able to source a Victorian model car but why not consider the age-old form of transport, the horse and carriage for a total wow factor?
Did you know that the “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” is a tradition in weddings that began in the Victorian era along with several other customs that continue today in our modern times. To guarantee good fortune, “something old” must be gold, and “something blue” symbolizes the heavens and true love. Also from the Victorian era are several traditional customs which include throwing rice, ringing church bells, and even the custom of the bride wearing white.
