    Are there any vintage, either old style or modern vintage, brides out there? I'm thinking along the lines of a Ruffled or a Style Me Pretty kind of style.

     

    I'm finding it hard to mix the destination wedding and vintage wedding concepts together. It seems like a lot of people want to do the whole "islandy" feel and that's not really the direction I want to go. I'd love to do an island vintage feel.

     

    I'd love to see any pictures you have or websites you've found on this look! Thanks in advance!

        Yes I love your idea for mason jars! But having a wedding in the Caribbean, I'm not sure how you'd transport them. But for a reception at home, I think that is such a fabulous idea. :)

          I am hauling my centerpieces down to Mexico...vases, starfishes, and candles.

          All of my items were ordered online. I noticed they came from Mexico, China or The Philippines. Everything was packaged so well and nothing broke when it arrived to me. So I'm going to stick the entire box into my luggage like this...

          I'm sure you could fit a case of mason jars in a luggage and still have room for more. Also, take advantage of your guests...they can help you haul some things down for you as well. The KEY is you just have to ask ;)

           

          I hope this helps...

            I am going for the whole vintage look at my at home reception with mason jars, burlap, mercury glass and corks.  But as for taking things down with me I am bringing burlap table runners to mexico with lace edges, all kinds of mercury glass votives that I DIYed and all of my flowers are blush and white and cream colored.

                I too am working on putting together a vintage glam beach wedding....

                 

                Somethings I'm doing...

                 

                My Bridesmaids will carry parasols instead of flowers.  they will have mango colored ones and I will have a fuschia one (for pics only).  Like this:

                paper-parasols.jpg

                 

                 

                I think my dress has a vintage feel (the same dress was actually featured in a style me pretty vintage glam styled shoot :))...I am going with a birdcage veil and a feather hairpiece.  this is my dress:

                2011-09-25_12.50.27.jpg

                 

                I am doing paper straws with flags to be used in the welcome drinks:  Like these but in my colors:

                 

                75716837454700155_WBLuoc1N_c.jpg

                 

                 

                Although I would love to have mason jars to serve drings from, it's just not feasible when having a reception in Punta Cana, DR.. But I'm going to try and bring a few to make centerpieces like these:

                40321359133686200_sluQv7Ta_c.jpg

                 

                I will have a puzzle piece guest book (like this one:)...I feel like it has a vintage vibe.

                puzzle guestbook.jpg

                 

                I am going to make a Flag banner for our sweet table like this one:

                600x397px-LL-7cf0ab89_DessertTable_bryjenbry.jpg

                 

                 

                I will do vintage framed table numbers....  The numbers will be made with swarovski crystals. - A combo of these:

                swarovski numbers.jpgtable numbers.jpg

                 

                 

                I am planning on doing Rock Candy escort cards:

                rock candy.jpg

                 

                I bought these vintage forks for when we cut the cake:

                iido_metoo forks.jpg

                 

                I am planning on designing our Menu's similar to these:

                menu.jpg

                 

                I'm working on a few more ideas...but this is a start.

                 

                I'd love to hear what ideas you or other have :)
