Tea party themed weddings have it all: dainty china, beautiful bouquets, and a sense of playful elegance. If you choose to have a tea-party wedding, there are many directions that you can take it in. This theme works well in gardens, as well as intimate indoor settings. It can be rustic, or elegant. And of course, many tea party themed weddings include a strong hint of vintage flavor!
Here are some ideas to inspire the vintage touches that will turn a tea-party wedding into a celebration to remember.
1. A Bouquet Of Old-Time Favorites
Build your bouquet with traditional, classic flowers such as English garden roses, muscari and peonies in dusty, pastel colors. These flowers would look gorgeous carried by a bride in a simple, country-style wedding dress, or an elegant vintage inspired gown.
2. Vintage Tea-Cup Centerpieces
Create D.I.Y. china tea cup centerpieces with dainty vintage tea cups. You can find these at flea markets, estate sales, tag sales, or thrift shops. Fill the cups with wax and a wick, for an evening affair. Pot mini succulents for a southwestern look, or float a votive candle and flower buds in a tea-cup full of water.
3. Wear Vintage Accessories
Add a touch of vintage jewelry to your bridal outfit, even if your gown is contemporary. Gorgeous, colorful vintage earrings, an antique string of pearls, or a borrowed bracelet from another era will do the trick.
The tea party theme is a wonderful vehicle for many vintage touches. Though your wedding many be focused on the rustic or elegant look that you are creating, the vintage touches that you add here and there will give your theme depth. I hope that you found some inspiration in these ideas!
