What to Look for in a Venue for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
When eyeing a venue for your dream Brooklyn wedding, pick one that’s easy to embellish and looks good with vintage details. Preferably, you could go for a garden setup where natural vines could serve as your main backdrop. It could be an indoor setting with a nice blend of bricks and wood pallets in the background to resound the vintage vibe you desire.
Your wedding venue must be ideal for the decorations and arrangements you have in mind. Whether you want to recreate the hippie vibes of the sixties or draw inspiration from the beauty of the Renaissance, there are plenty of ways to transform your Brooklyn wedding venue using intricate vintage elements.
Colour Palettes for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
The wedding colours for a vintage celebration may vary, depending on the era you want to mimic or the style you try to create. But there are specific colour combinations perfect for vintage-themed weddings and will express your personality.
The best colour palettes for a Brooklyn wedding with a vintage touch are brown, purple, white, and green. You could throw in a hint of maroon, cream, and brown for some variety, as these colours have vintage written all over them. Mix these colours into every aspect of your Brooklyn wedding, including the decor and wedding bouquets, and you’ll get the classic air you want.
Table Setting Style for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
Going minimalist is the way to the best table setting style for a Brooklyn wedding with vintage details. Your unfinished, rugged reception table could go without the fancy table cloth or elegant lace runners. Just put a bunch of colourful wedding flowers as your centrepiece, and you’re all set.
If you want a larger table, keep it minimalistic by putting a couple of lampstands with your flower arrangements or a set of tulip glasses for extra height. If you prefer having table linen, choose grey to keep the vintage look. For your utensils, stay low-key with white plates, teacups, and regular colourless wine glasses.
Wedding Dresses & Accessories for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
Vintage clothing refers to the old style of clothing, and for some, it may seem out of date. But wedding dresses should stay relevant and eye-catching, like the classic short bridal ball gown with long sleeves that will remain timeless and never go out of style. But if you want something light, try a flowy vintage silk chiffon dress with a plunging neckline.
To emphasise the vintage aura of your wedding look, wear a hairpin adorned with floral details and white pearls or an elegant fascinator. For brides who want a more colourful look for prenup and post-wedding photos, wearing a pink floral headpiece is a no-brainer.
Groom Style for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
Nothing beats the stylishness of a black suit for your groom’s style for a Brooklyn wedding. The notch and peak lapel types of suits will help the groom ooze out with elegance and confidence. Pair these suits with classic black wool pants, and your man instantly turns into the most dashing prince charming.
A bow tie is a perfect complement to the all-black suit. To complete the vintage black look, place a silky handkerchief in the suit pocket. Other options are grey suits if you want a different look for your photo shoots. Black shoes must be worn for your all-black suit, while brown leather shoes are the way to go for your all-grey attire.
Bouquets & Boutonnieres for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
Brooklyn is known for its vibrant culture and colourful personalities. These facts must resound in every detail of your Brooklyn wedding, including your wedding bouquet. Roses will never get old, so put a bunch of these delightful flowers in different colours. Go for the more feminine palettes like red, pink, cream, and pink. This time, you can get rid of the greenery and add them to other floral decors instead.
Boutonnieres must blend with the colours and design of your bouquet. A pairing of pink and purple roses will look charming on a grey suit. Your male guests may go for varying colours if you desire. A black suit, meanwhile, could live without the boutonnieres.
Wedding Invitations for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
There’s beauty in modesty, and the same applies to your wedding invitations for your dream Brooklyn wedding. Aim for a vintage design by going small with your invitation cards. A light pink or purple canvas is the ideal colour for your wedding cards. Mix cursive fonts with bold fonts to display your dynamic personality.
To emphasise the timelessness of your wedding invitations, wrap your cards with purple laces. Surround the cards with a mix of pink and purple edges. Heavy designing of the cards is discouraged, but you may add a few floral motifs of pink and purple if you like.
Reception Decor for a Brooklyn Wedding With Vintage Details
A Brooklyn wedding is your chance to unlock your flower goals when it comes to reception decor. You could save a significant portion of your wedding budget with this theme. As long as you find the lush venue full of greenery and plenty of natural light, you have the foundation for an unforgettable vintage Brooklyn wedding.
For your reception details, keep the vintage concept with wooden tables. You could put grey linens on the tables or none, but make sure you keep things uniform. Maintain the floral ambiance by placing colourful roses on every table. If you’re dishing out cupcakes or muffins, choose the colours that will complement your flowers.
