Vintage styles are popular for several reasons: They are usually somewhat rare as most items from yesteryear have been worn out or discarded, they were usually made of a much better quality than the items being produced today, the classic fabrics are no longer used in mainstream fashion, vintage items usually boast fascinating details (such as unique buttons or gorgeous lace), they are usually cheaper to buy and they tell tales of a cultural or social heritage, which resonates within each piece.

For these and other reasons, modern brides are choosing a vintage theme to mark the celebration of their special day. This gives their wedding a nostalgic aura of classic elegance and beauty, coupled with a trendy sort of chic.
