Is “Vintage” really out? According to Harmony Walton, Founder, BridalBar.com, contributor to The Huff Post Weddings, Posted: 11/15/11, :
“Sprawling fields of high grass, hillsides off in the distance, and … a gorgeous bride and groom perched on a vintage velvet burgundy chaise. Oh, the memories of the vintage wedding and its somewhat silly staged photographs. The not-so timeless vintage theme is one that often incorporates elements such as 50′s era luggage used as décor, mismatched chairs reminiscent of a casual backyard event, and floral vessels made from all types of throwback food canisters.”
Well, to me that is quite a bold statement. I have noticed that the last two years have been building and building towards “vintage” styled weddings. I do not personally see this trend going away for quite some time. I think that brides are really embracing their love of the past and the present, and for goodness sake, and recycling! I think this is much more than a “trend” and we will continue to see the theme for quite sometime. I personally think we should change the term “Vintage” to “Americana”.
