When I talk about my upcoming wedding (April 6th 2020) I always say the theme is 1940’s. It’s not fully 1940’s because they didn’t have a lot and some things they did have, I’m not a fan of. I suppose you could say my theme is vintage or rustic too. Anyway the things I think make it 1940’s are;
They are white with lace and a 1940’s style.
They are a telegram style which fits in with that time
We’re having little brown bags with sweets that were available in the 1940’s inside
The two adult bridesmaids, their dresses were purchased from Joanie Clothing which sells vintage style clothing.
We’re not having anything fancy, just a carvery followed by scones, jam and cream. And then a finger buffet in the evening.
Lots and lots of bunting, some paper chains and the tables will have cola bottles (in memory of my dad) with gypsophila in.
I’m getting so excited now! So you see, not 100% 1940’s but close to. Just under 11 weeks to go 😀
