Vintage Wedding Cakes – Vintage has the meaning of old, simple, plain, and related to the countryside, or in more simple words described; as rustic. But that does not necessarily mean vintage wedding cakes are out of trend. The vintage style shares quite a lot of similarities with the retro style. The difference is, that the retro style is more to the funky side and is more bold and edgy with neon colors and bling-bling accessories, it has a bit of hip hop and a lot of disco groove to it. It is safe to say that retro style is the upgraded modern version of vintage style.
Meanwhile, the vintage style is more soft and feminine. It has a classy feeling to it. More flowers, more flowy chiffon with laces, and ribbons with soft but still rich colors. If the retro style has bubbling soda, dancing in some clubs, or boot-cut jeans. And afro hair, the vintage style is all about wavy curled bangs afternoon tea with sweet and savory finger snacks while playing with a deck of cards, talking about husbands and whatnot. Can you grasp the idea?
