{Daily Wedding Bits} What is a Vintage Wedding? Vintage-inspired items from Local Louisville Vendors

In a lot of wedding blogs, I always see the phrase ‘VINTAGE WEDDING.’ If you have just started your research for a wedding theme, you should at least have an idea of what a vintage wedding is.

Vintage weddings are hugely popular and vintage inspired brides will create their wedding style and theme around a period in time – often the 1950s or a particular fashion style. A lot of brides nowadays are reinventing the vintage theme in so many beautiful ways, it’s an inspiring and incredibly exciting trend which is very well seen in the wedding magazines and blogs we know and love.

Vintage-inspired finds made by local Louisville vendors:
