Vintage Wedding Decor Ideas – San Antonio Wedding Consultant

View More: San Antonio, the vintage look is still in when it comes to weddings. I don’t think it will ever go out of style for some couples. The most important part in having your vintage-inspired wedding look perfect is the location. Either having it in an old historic building with antiques, wood floors & intricate details or outside with beautiful surroundings of trees and flowers is essential for everything to tie together. Here are some ideas in San Antonio and the surrounding area for a great venue to accomplish the vintage look.

The next step is to purchase or rent vintage furniture and décor. I have had several brides go to thrift stores and antique stores and make some great finds! Antique vases, books, trinkets, jewelry, luggage, containers, etc. are perfect for adding to the charm and ambiance of the venue space. A past couple of mine got lots of old library books and tied them together with ribbon and had them on each table for part of the centerpiece. They added in old gloves, lace, tea pots and trinkets to really give the table a vintage feel.

Here is another example from a past couple of mine where she had shopped around for vintage vases and then added beautiful creams and shades of pink colored flowers. The bride actually made the exquisite birdcages hanging from the ceiling to incorporate a vintage yet glamorous look to them.

If you really want to have your guests feel they have gone back into time, it’s all about how you design your tables with the vintage items, the flowers you choose, the furniture style used and even the dress attire of the wedding party. All the small details will be noticed, I promise you, so have fun with it! Here are some furniture rental companies in the San Antonio area:

The Hottest 2014 Trends for Texas Brides

While we’re still in the middle of the 2013 wedding season, it’s also time to start looking ahead to the big trends for 2014 weddings. I was recently at the Austin Wedding Market Expo, where the fantastic Laura Cave from The Knot spoke about 2014 Wedding Trends.

Wedding trends come from a lot of places. These include celebrity weddings, fashion, technology, social media, and real life inspiration. For 2014, many of the trends include a more causal feel with an emphasis on fun.

Here are five of the big trends for 2014:

Deco Chic

From décor to attire, the glamour of the 1920s will continue to be big in 2014. Along with the Great Gatsby-inspired style, expect to see a lot more Art Deco influence.

Rustic will take an elegant turn in 2014. This popular theme includes soft, feminine touches to hairstyles, flowers, and décor.

Technology Showdown


Plugged-in weddings will be a big trend, with couples using hashtags and Instagram photobooths to get great photos from their guests.

Farm to Fork



The big trend for wedding menus in 2014 will be fresh, organic, and green. Food quality is hugely important, and couples are opting for farm fresh food for their big day.
