Vintage inspired weddings are becoming more and more popular with time, so much so that we dedicated thins page solely for vintage wedding cake inspiration and ideas. The concept of vintage weddings emerged a few years ago from what called antropolgie style wedding and now has established itself as a popular theme for many foreign weddings taking place in Malta. Vintage wedding themes generally have pastel green pink and blue as their main as the main colour. These colours will be predominant in clothing such as for the flower girl and bridesmaid, and for the wedding accessories. The range of wedding accessories in which these colours are included range from a simple hair band to the more predominate items such as the bridal bouquet and the wedding cake. When it comes to patterns, polka dots, checked and floral are the favourite. With some imagination these patterns can be incorporated in the overall wedding theme. Generally, we at Pearl weddings prefer to incorporate such patterns in the table clothes, plates and even specific food items especially sweets. Also it is a great idea to have the wedding band dressed up in 50’s. 60’s styled clothes with some cute polka dot dresses for the female band members and black trousers and shirt with thin pastel ties for the male band members.
Music for Vintage style weddings will preferably be 50’s and 60’s with bands in the flavour of The Beatles and Elvis. When it comes to sweet corner, not only the wedding cake but the whole sweet wedding table should follow the vintage wedding theme. Fill glass jars with colourful candies. Use colourful paper napkins. Use wicker trays to hold colourful jam tarts. Decorate the table with flowers in vintage soft drinks bottles (like that of Coka Cola).These are just few of the idea that you should consider.
The vintage wedding cake should be the focal point of the sweets section of your wedding. Finding the right baker is the key for the successful execution of your vintage inspired wedding in Malta. However keep in mind that vintage wedding cakes require a lot of detail work, which takes a lot of time and generally end up being a bit expensive. The wedding cake should be round in shape and carry as many tiers as needed for your number of guests. The flavour of the cake is entirely up to you however the most common flavours in the 50’s and 60;’s where almonds, chocolate and fruitcake. Therefore, if you wish to be completely faithful to your theme you should go for these flavours. In your wedding cake decoration, use pastel colours and incorporate flowers and bows.
