Elegant Journey limousine services in the Bay area of California offer pristine early era limousines that can serve as the inspiration and centerpiece of a retro-themed wedding. Consider these ideas, and then choose a vintage limousine rental for wedding authenticity.
For an authentic, turn of the century look, the groom could dress in a tuxedo that includes pin-striped trousers, the hard removable shirt collar of the day, frock coat and top hat. Toward the end of the decade, women were fond of the narrow, slimming hobble skirts, paired with waist-cinching bustles. It's a wonderfully feminine look for a bride.
Zero in on a World's Fair theme with a few subtle touches. Serve ice cream cones, which were unwittingly "invented" during the 1904 exposition in St. Louis. Also popular with fairgoers were cut glass punch bowls, which can be used to serve punch or filled with water and floating candles for a centerpiece. Vintage ruby glassware or reproduction pieces could serve the same purpose.
Consider decorating in black-and-white in honor of the silent movie era. Follow the theme with black-and-white pictures next to your San Francisco Bay area limousine. (Elegant Journey's 1909 Rolls Royce is perfect for a silent movie look.)
For a fun and rustic reception, decorate tables at the reception hall with items representing the popular diversions of the day:
Guests are guaranteed to have a great time amusing themselves with the decor. For an added taste of nostalgia, hire a pianist to play jaunty ragtime music during the dinner hour, or just spin a CD of Irving Berlin hits.
Also known as the "Jazz Age," or the roaring twenties, we saw the emergence of the flapper. This "modern" young woman danced the Charleston, shimmy and Fox-trot. What a fantastic way to cut loose at a reception, especially for an older bride who doesn't necessarily want a traditional long dress.
Celebrate the dawn of aviation, and tip a hat to Charles Lindberg, by placing darling Spirit of St. Louis replica planes on guest tables. And Elegant Journey, the bay area limousine service of choice, has the perfect coach for the guests of honor: a 1927 Stutz limousine.
The post-World War II era witnessed the explosion of television in the American household. Celebrate this wholly American institution with a nod to the favorite programs of the day: "I Love Lucy," "The Honeymooners" and "The Ed Sullivan Show." Happily, for auto enthusiasts, the '50s also saw the birth of the muscle car and an era in which the automobile was center stage in people's everyday lives. The Rolls Royce company's Silver Cloud was making waves in the upscale communities for its style, quality and innovation.
Elegant Journey has never been just about selling people limousine rentals. It has always been about passion ... about passing along some of that passion to people who love sophistication, style and elegance as much as we do.
