Your wedding day should be the most perfect, beautiful day of your life. From your gown to your décor, there are many details you should start nailing down as soon as possible if you want to avoid any unpleasant last-minute problems. If you’re in love with the timeless appeal of vintage wedding themes, you’re in luck. It isn’t too hard to find vintage candle holders and other classic items that are available for rent. From the big details to the final touches, here’s how to plan the perfect vintage wedding.
Find the Perfect Gown
It can take a lot of time to find the perfect wedding dress, especially if you’re buying online. For this reason, you should start shopping for your gown as soon as possible. Keep in mind that there are some risks involved with online wedding dress shopping. Since you can’t see the dress in person until you’ve already purchased it, you may be disappointed by the way it looks when you do receive it. If you end up sending the gown back, it could take precious time and might cause you a lot of stress. If possible, purchase the dress from a shop that is located close enough for you to try it on before purchasing.
Rent Tables and Chairs
Depending on where you plan to hold your wedding, you may be responsible for renting your own tables and chairs. It’s wise to do this several months in advance, especially if your wedding is located in spring or summer, which are very busy times for weddings. When you rent tables and chairs, you need to know approximately how many guests are coming so you can reserve the appropriate number of tables and chairs.
Plan the Decorative Details
The little decorative details can seal the charming vintage look you’re going for. From gorgeous, vintage candle holders to vintage glassware rentals, you have so many options that can help you get the look you envision. Since the vintage look is so popular right now, you shouldn’t have any problems finding plenty of decorative elements that match your theme—as long as you reserve them early.
Reserve a Venue
Venues tend to be reserved far in advance. So if you have your eye on the perfect location, check now to make sure it’s available when you need it. Look for a venue that complements the vintage theme and provides enough room for all your guests. You’ll also need to carefully consider your budget and make sure you have enough money to cover the venue. You’ll also need to find out if the venue will allow you to come in and decorate the space or if they provide decorating services as well. If you plan to have catering at your event, make sure the catering company will deliver to your venue.
The most important thing to do when planning a vintage wedding is to have fun! Once you’ve nailed down all the important details, give yourself permission to fully enjoy the event and don’t let yourself get overwhelmed by stress. Planning for your big day should be the most exciting process of your life.
