I was so inspired by the beautiful vintage wedding bouquet that starred in yesterday's 1920's style wedding, that I sought permission from Swedish Florist with a penchant for all things vintage, Madelin Downey, to feature some of her work on Love My Dress.
Aren't these vintage style florals just beautiful? And perfectly fit for any vintage style wedding! I absolutely adore the pomander below – it would look fabulous with a Candy Anthony 1950's style wedding dress and a set of pretty white dress gloves, don't you think?

Fabulous little vintage jars and tins add a wonderful touch of nostalgia to this table display. You could pretty up the table displays at your own vintage style wedding in the same way, sourcing old records, tins, jars and vases from second hand shops or antiques shops/markets…
A nostalgic combination of feathers, flowers and photo frames make a beautiful 1940's style display below…
Goooooooorgeous! I love everything about these fabulous florals – thank you Madelin Downey and Photographer Labelle Rockette
And whilst we're on the subject of vintage florals, have you checked out the utterly fabulous Miss Pickering yet, who I interviewed for the Love My Dress Wedding Blog back in May?
How beautiful is the display below? I just love that Miss Pickering can transform a recycled Bon Maman jar into something as delightful as this! Oh, and just a little off-topic, but you simply have to check out Miss Pickering's beautiful dog, affectionately known as 'the hound' – he even has his own blog!

Another option is to go for a vintage wedding bouquet that has been crafted out of vintage jewellery, buttons, crystals and other haberdashery. These creations make the most striking of hand-held bouquets that can be cherished forever and handed down as a family keepsake or heirloom. For the very best in this style of bouquet, check out:-
