Every day we ensure our hair is looking as fabulous as ever and your wedding day is no exception! This is a great occasion to be extravagant and style your hair in the most beautiful way possible. There are some great hair pieces out there which can be used to create a beautiful wedding day style. I’m going to be taking a look at some lovely hair accessories which you can use to ensure you are looking absolutely gorgeous on your wedding day!
Up dos are perfect for adding accessories to. Flower accessories really compliment tousled curls pinned up and it creates a lovely romantic look! I love that some off the accessories pictured have pearls and sparkles in them as it gives them an extra unique touch. You could even match the colour of your accessories to your wedding day flowers and theme!
The netted/lace accessories pictured above have a classic vintage appeal and look extremely classy. These can be used instead of a veil for a sophisticated and stunning look on your big day! I love these as they have a real 1940’s feel to them, yet are very fashionable today too!
Entwining accessories in to hair can be beautiful and this could be used for you and the bridesmaids! It is a gorgeous idea and looks stunning. I think this look is nice for spring and summer weddings and is a lovely romantic look. You can entwine the flowers in to your whole hair or just add them to plaits. This really works well with tousled/curly hair styles.
I hope these ideas have inspired you! Your hair is one of the most important aspects on your wedding day. Make sure you practice different hairstyles out beforehand to see what suits your face shape and colouring best! And don’t be afraid of accessories!

A vintage wedding is the perfect way to celebrate your special day if you are a sentimentalist who values tradition. If you want to re-capture the beauty and elegance of an earlier age we have plenty of stunning ideas for you in this article.
The femininity of the vintage style is perfect for a special occasion such as a wedding. The bride will look beautiful in an exquisite one off wedding dress. The detailing on traditional dresses is exceptional and the craftsmanship that goes into each intricate beaded design or piece of lace is a masterpiece in itself. The simple yet elegant a-line dress is another vintage favourite, teamed with a vintage hat, head net or 1940’s inspired hair style you will feel a film star.
When it comes to styling your wedding so much is dependant on decorations, flowers, props and those little extras that make your wedding personal and unique. To create a vintage look you should use fine silver and bone china with hand painted feminine floral designs. The flowers should be natural, fresh and plucked from an English country garden; it is nice to pick flowers with subtle fragrances to perfume your venue.
Above are some beautiful ideas to make your wedding extra special. The picture on the left shows vintage wedding photos displayed amongst the flowers. You could use old photographs of your parents or grandparents’ weddings and tie them to your bouquet to create a sentimental keepsake of your day. The picture to the right shows a lovely home made confetti idea; using old music sheets, ribbon and lace you could make these little cones and fill them with dried roses or fresh rose petals to use as confetti.
Food and Drink
A high class tea party is a classic idea for a vintage spring/summer wedding. The use of pastel colours creates a elegant backdrop to your festivities. You could opt for an outdoor buffet consisting of salmon and cucumber sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and English jam, vintage sweets and cupcakes in lace skirts. For refreshments you could serve tea in vintage tea cups, fresh cucumber water, pink grapefruit juice in rustic jam jars. Another truly original idea is; home made lavender lemonade garnished with sprigs of fresh lavender. It tastes delicious and its subtle lilac hue will look pretty amongst the fresh flowers and pastel coloured china .
I hope these ideas have inspired you to create your own Vintage Wedding.
