Boutique Hotel

Appearing for the first time in the 1980’s in New York, San Francisco and London, still not well known in some countries, this concept is now booming. This kind of hotel trade is made to stand out hotels chains and offer clients a personalized, luxurious service. A boutique hotel is a small Hotel de Charme, composed of less than 100 rooms, even only 10 sometimes, but each one is decorated in a specific way, whether it is very modern and design or vintage, every room has its own theme.

Time for dinner!

The wedding diner took place in the backyard, on a long table lightened by lanterns hung above the guests’ heads. The lovely vintage centrepieces were composed of pastel coloured flowers and candles everywhere. The decoration for a Vintage Wedding in Portugal is very simple, you just have to put pastel colours like we did with white tablecloth, pink placemats and flowered napkins. Nearby was a huge basin where were floating flowers, a romantic touch to intensify the vintage decoration.

Get a chic Vintage Venue – With 3 simple steps!

1. Feel close to Nature:

To make a good vintage decoration, nothing as good as nature. You can savour your delicious wedding diner on wood tables and chairs for example. Nature is wild so put as many flowers as you want because in a vintage decoration, this is never too much. It doesn’t matter if there are hundred different kinds of flowers on the same table, so you can pick up all the flowers or plants that you like to feel as good as you can be at your weeding venue.

2. Use Pastel Colours:

You can use magnificent flowers as table centrepieces, the only thing is that they have to be pastel. Pastel is the main characteristic of a retro decoration which is required in a vintage wedding. Mix up as many colours as you want, either pink, off-white or whatever, they just have to be in pastel tones. Of course, this advise is not only for flowers but also for every objet , fold of fabric or other item of your wedding decoration.

3. Organisation of a disorganised decoration:

A vintage style means a decoration without any rule. You can mix up various objects from different styles, they only have to seem coming from a decoration style of the past. Most of the time vintage decoration is busy.
