Since our wedding in Mexico was very simple and based on the tropical zen-like atmosphere, my at home reception in a banquet hall involved much more detail to get the vintage theme I so badly desired. Budgets prevailed and the hall was already quite beautiful so small details such as the french inspired heavy linen paper I used for the table numbers, incredibly reasonably priced centerpieces made up of pearls, votive candles, hand pinned risers and gorgeous vendela roses and antique hydrangeas would have to suffice. Here are some of the details of my vintage but mostly ivory themed wedding. The cake was provided by the hall and was a simple marzipan 3 tiered square shape, and I chose two types of ribbon from a local fabric store, and requested they overlay the satin over the lace. I ordered our monogrammed cake topper, handmade wrist couture inspired purse, and gorgeous shoes online. I also stumbled upon an amazing design duo in Ireland who handmade my organza shrug. All the ladies received cream, ivory and white shades of pashminas in which I personalized with a little poem of thanks and a small pearl, wrapped it in raw raffia and placed in a wire bin.
