Real Wedding Inspiration: Vintage Accents


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.

I've never seen such great idea like these for a bouquet design. It just look so awesome and the color of the roses, red just look so stunning and lovely. Perfect!

Great Idea !! I completely agree with you. I think Flower is always good as well as romantic idea to express your love in the front of your beloved. We can use different color flower for different purpose like Red is symbol of love. White is symbol of peace , Yellow for friendship..
