A Vintage Mardi Gras Wedding

When helping a bride to plan her wedding, one of my favorite parts of the process comes at the very beginning, when the possibilities seem endless and the options for theme and style have yet to be nailed down.

For many brides, however, this can also be the most stressful phase, because as we all know, infusing different ideas and interests into one cohesive vision can be tough. But with the right direction and inspiration, I know it’s also totally possible.

That’s why when one of my clients came to me a few weeks ago asking if I thought combining 1920s vintage style with a Mardi Gras atmosphere would be too disjointed, I told her absolutely not! Jumping into my blogger mode, I immediately started hunting for examples of the fabulous vintage New Orleans-style weddings I’ve seen.

Here’s just a sampling of what I found, including images and ideas she’s now using to give family and friends a peek inside her own developing vision.






What do you think of a vintage Mardi Gras wedding theme? What special touches would you throw into the mix?
