2 Types of Vintage

It's your wedding and you love that vintage look where every item seems to have a story within it's weathered finish, but vintage can go two ways; refined and rustic. So on this beautiful Tuesday morning, we are going to explore "rustic vintage" and "refined vintage" both of which are beautiful and leave a lasting impression!

Rustic Vintage

Here at the Attic rustic vintage means wood rounds, burlap accents, beautiful lush flowers with natural hues, and maybe a few vintage suitcases in the corner holding the guest book. It gives the feeling of timeless romance while bringing in a touch of nature's beauty. There's depth in a rustic vintage styled wedding. The raw and yet lovely appeal of nature and all that it has to offer with it's contrast of rich as well as subtle tones, and vintage props which add time but also an air of romance. We love creating rustic vintage events! Take a look at the pictures below of our very own events we've styled with the help of Alisa Lewis Event & Design and use them as inspiration for your vintage styled wedding!

Bringing in natural tones, while adding bunting and hand written font gives the perfect touch of rustic vintage! 

We love the deep tones of cobalt blue with the vintage lanterns!

 Nothing says rustic, like our beautiful and handcrafted Farm Table Collection.

In this wedding we created the ethereal vintage vibe while adding natural tones and details! 

Rustic vintage can be elegant, too! By using our vintage iron arbor with the perfect amount of patina, paired with our lovely chandelier, your wedding will be the perfect balance of vintage, rustic, and romantic!

Rent our crates and wine barrel table, to highlight your food or dessert tables! The possibilities are endless with these adorable options!

Refined Vintage

If you like the vintage look, but also love the elegant look of glitter here and there, and a pop of gold or silver, then refined vintage might be a good choice for you! We have endless items to rent that can make a simple idea turn into a magical event! We love refined vintage because it can include so many lovely items, such as our large collection of beautiful mercury glass votives, or our vintage bottles, or our gold chargers. Regardless, our refined vintage items are sure to add elegance to your special day or event! Look below for more ideas from events we've created!

Mercury glass votives add a sense of romance while deep purples and lovely florals keep this vintage event refined and beautiful!

Once again, the collection of mercury glass, natural moss, vintage bottles, and delicate florals take beautiful to a new level. Create an unforgettable event with this combination!

If you dont care for our rustic lanterns, try white ones! These add charm while still remaining elegant!

Vintage colors, but refined florals and accents make this an unforgettable moment!

Gold is that color that instantly separates rustic vintage from refined vintage!

Thank you so much for taking a look! If you see anything you like or are interested in using the Attic for your rental needs, let us know! If you like what you see in the way of event and wedding designing, take a look at our sister company, Alisa Lewis Event & Design

Happy Tuesday!
