Vintage Wedding Ideas Pt. 3 – Location, Location, Location

Welcome back to my vintage wedding ideas series and today I’m sharing part 3 Location, Location, Location.  Probably one of your first wedding selections and I think your most important.  You’re looking for the perfect place to say your vows, accommodate numerous friends and family, and the backdrop for your overall theme, in this case Vintage.  There are many locations that will give that vintage vibe, places you may not have even considered.
When you think “Vintage Wedding” one of the first locations that comes to mind is a rustic farm with a barn.

Love this location here where it looks like all the neighbors came together for a celebration and everyone brought chairs and dishes.  So simple, but enchanting.
A little too rustic for you or no barns nearby?  How about this location…

If you’re in the city, a historic brick building is a perfect location for a vintage wedding.  Here they did minimal amount of decor and let the texture and beauty of the space come through.

Beach weddings are very popular, but how do you do a vintage feel at the beach?

Set up sofas and chairs for that casual vintage feel.  You could even do mid century furniture if you wanted a 1950-60’s, “mad men” retro look.

Add vintage chandeliers to an old tree, a few vintage furniture pieces and instant alter.

You can still have a traditional church wedding.  Select an old chapel or church, one that has a historic meaning to you.  Perhaps the church where your parents were married.

How about in a backyard?  Bring in casual seating, tables with vintage tablecloths, and a vintage trailer for seating or a bar inside.  I love this look for a retro vintage wedding.

So, as you can see there are many options for a vintage wedding location.  Don’t limit yourself to what has been traditional or common.  Pick a location that reflects you as a couple, has a historical or personal significance to you and most of all, a location that you love.

    Fabulous locations. I recently attended a wedding in a barn just up the road from our home. It was wonderful! Outdoor weddings are definitely my fav. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
