Colorado vintage wedding inspiration

By on November 8th, 2015

This past summer we had the pleasure of being included in a Colorado vintage wedding styled photo shoot. The photo shoot was organized by Ashley Kidder, of Urban Safari Photography, and with collaboration of some really awesome Denver vendors.

Ashley’s inspiration behind the shoot came from wanting to blend a bold color palette with a touch of vintage. Our contribution to the styled photo shoot was a custom shirt and heirloom cufflinks.

So, we worked to build a shirt that was both timeless and had enough depth to match the vintage theme. We settled on a white and blue tattersall with contrast paisley french cuffs. The shirt allowed the groom to stand alone without a jacket, yet not overpower his bride. And he got to wear a killer bright red bowtie.

While it depends on the theme of your wedding, we always recommend wearing a suit. Granted we are a little biased since we are a suiting company. However, if you’re going for the casual approach without a jacket, here are a few things to think about:

Keep it simple:

A timeless shirt will always stand up to the occasion. It’s all in the details. Some details are for you and your bride like embroidering both of your initials on your shirt or cuff, or having the date embroidered on the inside pocket of your suit jacket. While other details can be more colorful like contrast stitching and fabric inlays.

Plan ahead:

If you’re investing in a custom suit or tux for your wedding, think of how you can wear it in the future. Will this be your next date night jacket or fall blazer? As for this tattersall shirt, this is something you can wear again at the office or out on a date.

Subtle Matching:

I love being able to match my date with subtle highlights in stitching and fabric inlays. Everything about you for the day is considered, whether that is your highlight stitching or a simple collar inlay.
