Are you planning a vintage wedding? It’s one of my favorite themes: it is classic, elegant, and timeless. Plus, it is one wedding theme that will never go out of style. In my new book, The Inspired Wedding, the chapter entitled Romantically Vintage is overflowing with vintage wedding tips and suggestions for decor, attire, favors, and more. To give you a glimpse of this style, I’m sharing vintage wedding accessory ideas in this feature. It’s so easy to finish your bridal look with vintage touches: here are nine to get you started!

Vintage Wedding Accessory Ideas

1. Vintage Wedding Dress

This dress is one of my favorite true vintage finds to date. The open back, long sleeves, and lace detail is stunning.

2. Handkerchief

To use a hankie as an accessory, simply wrap it around the stems of your bouquet. Use a simple dress pin to keep it secure.

3. Bridal Capelet

Some brides like to cover their strapless dress for the ceremony; others just love the look of vintage detailing around the top. Here’s one stunning vintage detailed capelet as one example.

4. Burlap Bouquet with Vintage Lace

This bouquet will last forever! Plus, it’s gorgeous, especially with that layer of vintage lace underneath.

These heels are custom-made with a hint of lace for the vintage-loving bride. I want these just because.

7. Earrings

These earrings are circa 1950s and are a true vintage find! They’re simple enough to go with any gown you choose, but stunning enough to make a statement.

8. Hair Comb

This hair comb–and her hairstyle!–is a perfect example of skipping a veil, yet still incorporating your vintage theme.

Hi, loves! Have you popped in to Allisa Jacobs‘ shop lately? It’s making me very impatient for spring, especially because it’s only been winter “officially” for… what, two weeks? Yikes. Regardless, these pretty pops of color–like this yellow polka dot clutch in citron, to be exact–is a refreshing thing to see after waking to find lots of snow on the ground this morning.

Yellow Bridesmaid Clutch with Pretty Polka Dots

This yellow polka dot clutch is perfect for your spring wedding! Summer, too. Ah, summer… what is that like again? I’m starting to forget.

Oh, I tell you… those nutcrackers yesterday and the holiday commercials on TV and the occasional oops Christmas song that comes up on my playlist (you know, on accident) has really gotten me in the holiday spirit. It’s early… I know, I know. But if you’re planning a winter or Christmas wedding, you’re obviously getting things ready NOW. Right? So when I spotted these red plaid clutch purses by Juneberry Stitches with just the cutest little ruffle I couldn’t keep them to myself. Can you blame me?

Red Plaid Clutch Purses

Tartan plaid — you know, the red Christmas-y kind — is obviously the best kind of plaid. Just look how cute it is!

I love the plaid fabric handle, too. And this is a wristlet clutch purse design, which makes it easy to carry + grab on the go.

EB TIP: Give a set of these plaid clutch purses to your bridesmaids as their thank you gift and then fill it with extra surprise gifts. For instance, a pair of earrings, a necklace, or chic nail polishes. (I’m currently obsessed with this for my nails and this as an accent. See? Told you I was already holiday-ready.)

Go + Get ‘Em!

You’ll want to order soon because these babies are custom-made. Check out the details here. Meghan is a sweetheart to work with, so you’re in terrific hands. And we’re pretty obsessed with her work over here.
