Creating a Vintage Aesthetic at Your Southern Wedding Venue

To celebrate romance and a return to tradition, some modern couples choose to infuse a vintage flavor to their nuptials. If you’re exploring this avenue as well, below are a few ideas to get you off to a good start.

Setting

Nothing quite captures and recreates the aura of a bygone age like holding your wedding ceremony on a southern plantation. The Estate is an authentic antebellum mansion rebuilt brick by brick in its present location. Although outfitted with modern amenities, it retains its old-world charm and genuine southern appeal. It is a much sought-after wedding venue in Atlanta and the perfect setting for a vintage-inspired wedding.

Flowers

Use candles and crystal vases to add a romantic air to your tablescapes. Make sure your reception area is abloom with a profusion of flowers to invoke a time when love (and lovers) spoke the language of flowers to express thoughts and emotions too powerful for mere words to convey. Summer flowers (ranunculus, hydrangeas, petite tea roses, etc.) work very well in this kind of setting.

Accessories

Monogrammed napkins, a variety of silver laden with the patina of age, dainty plates and serving china – details such as these transport your guests to a different place and time. Make sure you have an underlying theme or unifying color palette to pull all the details together. Nothing shatters a trip back in time more quickly than a detail that is out of place.

Romantic weddings are on the rise, perhaps as a much-needed antidote to the relentless manic pace of modern existence.
