There are lots of details that accompany a vintage-themed wedding. More couples are looking for unique wedding venues with an outdoor ceremony space and luscious full gardens in which to say their vows. Brides imagine walking down an aisle lined with lanterns or scattered with rose petals that lead them to their soulmate. They picture repurposed mantels and doors draped with seeded eucalyptus, garden roses and peonies for picture-perfect backdrops. A venue like Brantwyn Estate—located on the grounds of The DuPont Country Club—lends itself to the vintage vibe that many brides are choosing in 2018.

Historic venues are intimate and quaint, transporting couples and their guests back to a bygone era of romance and nostalgia. The Brantwyn Estate is a dignified brick Georgian Style venue with a spiral staircase, fireplaces and old-fashioned urns overflowing with flowers—exuding charm and refinement but in a relaxed atmosphere.

As friends and family members enter, they can sign a guest book and leave a special note written with a quill and ink. The table can be displayed with crystal candlesticks, flowers and ornately framed romantic quotes. 

The dinner hour will be filled with classic and timeless elegance: Tables are draped with luxurious linens and set with china and silver. The scents of roses and hydrangeas used in the centerpieces will deliver guests back to the turn of the century. 

Choosing a venue with over 40 years of experience will help you set the stage for your dream vintage wedding. Let Brantwyn Estate assist you in planning your happily-ever-after.
