Harking back to the classic styles of previous decades is often the foundation of a truly original, elegant, and stylish wedding, but it can be difficult to get all of the vintage details right without a little bit of guidance. Style Me Vintage: Weddings looks at how to source and put together vintage bridal outfits and event styling. Packed with gorgeous ideas and practical advice—from finding a dress to putting together accessories, flowers, makeup, hair, and even extra details such as the venue, cake, stationery, photography, and entertainment as well as a VENDOR DIRECTORY (Hallelujah! Because we don’t all have the time or resources to troll thrift, consignment, and online stores all day erry day) —Style Me Vintage: Weddings makes sure all aspects of your perfect day are covered, with style!
