Show style, class and sophistication with a rustic, vintage French wedding theme.
We adore wedding themes and ideas that truly personalise your big day and make it individual to you. We love weddings that say something about you as a couple, this is what makes your special day so memorable.
At The Wedding Affair we love the idea of a Vintage French wedding theme. Whether you are planning to get married abroad or somewhere closer to home in England, its all about making new memories and reliving them in places that are special to you. This is why we have chosen this theme as this weeks Monday Mood board… happy planning!
Why not use some DIY and create some personalised wedding stationery that matches your theme? We love these handmade wedding invites made to look like passports from Etsy. They would be perfect for destination weddings or themed weddings!
Styling is the key to this theme. Whether it be fabulous floral styling by Les Fleurs Du Moulin through to vintage pieces of furniture.
You cant go wrong with blush shades and pastel colours! If you are wanting to create more of a DIY wedding, then why not experiment with painting up an old wooden ladder and using it as décor? Or experiment with restoring old furniture. This is the perfect way to create a personalised vintage feel to your wedding! Deer Pearl Flowers has some amazing inspiration on restoring old furniture.
Everyone knows France is well known for its finest food and patisserie. Why not create a menu or have a cake which represents the sophistication of French food, your guests will be wowed!
We have taken inspiration from our own suppliers at The Wedding Affair. Poppy Pickering, Choose Cake and Keiron George Cake Design all create stunning cakes which fit into this theme perfectly! Again we love the pastel colours and they just look so elegant. Why not create a macaroon cake as an alternative to a sweet buffet or wedding cake?
Anna Campbell creates hand made bridal wear and silken dresses. She takes inspiration from vintage romance. Using decadent embellishments, intricately beaded laces, soft pretty tulles and floating silk chiffons. At The Wedding Affair we love how these look timeless but not traditional, perfect for your vintage French Inspired wedding.
How cute is the flower girls dress? Raq Robes Collection on Etsy creates the loveliest boho and vintage inspired children’s dresses and outfits. These would be perfect for flower girls and Page boys at your wedding!
Finally onto the men…again from our own suppliers Whitfield & Ward and Affleck & Moffat we think that these suits match the vintage French theme perfectly! The grey and navy compliments the pastel tones, lavender buttonholes would also go fabulous with this theme.
