It seems to us that the farmstyle vintage weddings that we have treasured and adored in the past few years are slowly starting to fade out of the limelight and are being replaced with a different sort of vintage. It's a vintage that's adopted many names - Gatsby, '20s, New Vintage. Whatever it's called, we love it and we can't wait to see this trend really take hold in South Africa this year.
We wrote about this new vintage trend some time ago with our Gatsby inspired post and our Roaring 20s inspiration board. Today we're teaming up with our friends at Hello Pretty to show you how to make this trend a reality for your very own wedding day. Hello Pretty is an online marketplace for independent South African creatives, and as we've said over and over again, our philosophy is to buy local first! So let's take a look at what beautifully curated items available at Hello Pretty link directly to the New Vintage trend that's emerging.
One - This vintage gold bracelet is the perfect accessory in any New Vintage themed wedding. Ladies, don't shy away from gold - it's the new silver! Bracelet by Civetta Spark for R699.
Two - This trend is non-existant without some sort of gorgeous and heavily embellished headpiece. We love this silver rhinestone flower headpiece. The dropped down chains complete this headpiece - making it the perfect bridal accessory. Headband by Jewels and Lace for R135.
Three - Don't forget to glam your groom with these perfect bowties. A striped blue and off-white one adds a little bit of fun into his outfit, while a textured grey will make any suit look dapper. Both bowties from Bow Peep for R300.
Four - Hang your wedding gown on this gold sequined hanger for an extra bit of sparkle. Remember, you can never have too much sparkle! Hanger from Lovilee for R165.
Five - We love this basket encased pearl ring. Wouldn't it make a lovely maid of honour gift? Ring for Muchi Galoosh Jewellery for R350.
Six - For added drama, this black and white vintage rose headpiece would be perfect for a Gatsby inspired bridal shower. Spoil your bride with this - we promise she'll love it! Headpiece from Black Cake on sale now for R244.
Seven - We love the romantic touch of this pearl vine haircomb - a welcome addition to any bridesmaid outfit. Haircomb from Jewels and Lace for R125.
Eight - Top your cake off the right way with this gold glitter ''I believe in us" cake topper. So darling! Topper from Match Set Love for R70.
