When it comes to adding vintage details to your wedding, a little detail can go a long way – especially with your flowers. Dig around in your attic or a local craft store bin for pieces of fabric that look and feel classic to you. (Stay on the lookout for brooches and old custom jewelry too.) Look for accent colors like gold, black, or white – they work well. Patterns like damask or stripes will look the part too. Slowly wrap the fabric around your bouquet using pearl pins to secure each layer, and for added detail. Once the fabric is in place complete the look with your favorite brooch. So easy, right? And you can use the same trick for your groom or groomsman’s boutonnières -- without the brooch of course.
