Not everybody wants to have a traditional wedding. In fact, they are becoming less and less commonplace as time goes on. People want to make their weddings all about them, more personalised and more fun. One really fun wedding theme, is the retro theme. Retro is coming back with a bang, but there are so many ways you can do it so that it’s personal to you. Here are some fun tips you can use to help you with your planning!

Choose Your Time Period
Retro can mean anything from the 20s to the 50s. You could do a mix and match of multiple eras, but you want to do it on purpose and not just because you didn’t do enough research. Read up and decide on your favourite eras. Choose carefully, as some will be harder to emulate than others.

How Retro Do You Go?
Just how retro do you want to go with your big day? A hint of retro, or all out retro? You don’t really want your wedding to turn into some kind of fancy dress party, but it’s up to you how far you take it with the day. You can make it as subtle or as obvious as you like.

Set The Theme
Set the theme for your big day by sending out retro invitations and RSVPs. Vintage wedding invitations will give your guests a cool little clue of what’s to come.

For those of us in most parts of Canada, we cannot wait for the Victoria Day long weekend. This long weekend is dear to our hearts because it unofficially signifies the beginning of summer, the beginning of cottage weekends and the beginning of warmer weather. For myself, I will be taking a road trip to Ottawa and Montreal for the long weekend. I am going to show you how to travel light and still feel like you have all your essential makeup and skincare needs on hand.
