Traditional costumes today can be very modern and stylish!
Traditional wedding ceremonies are currently experiencing a boom, more and more couples are choosing to have their wedding in traditional dress, but it is more than just wearing a Dirndl and Lederhose!

What is a traditional dress wedding?
Obviously, the classic leather pants and the traditional dirndl are an integral part of a traditional wedding and are here to stay. A complete wedding party all with the same dress code as it is traditionally known, makes a beautiful picture. But the couple also needs to keep in mind that not all guests would feel comfortable in a traditional costume or even have such clothes in their closet.

There are many possibilities to include the traditional style in the planning of the wedding. For example, when selecting the location. Since home and closeness to nature are very important in this genre, it is appropriate for example to hold the wedding ceremony in a chapel on the mountain, the subsequent celebration could take place outdoors. For cooler temperatures, however, the local inn or a rustic alpine hut can also be used. Also the music could be adapted to traditional wedding style, with a band that has, for example, wind instruments, guitar or maybe even the traditional accordion is certainly not a bad idea.

The decorations for a traditional wedding don’t have to be old fashioned. There are many ways to work with this motto in a modern way so that it still shows the traditional style. Combine simple flower arrangements with the traditional decor such as deer, Edelweiss or wooden elements and in no time you have achieved a perfect combination of your decoration in the alpine chic style.

Why should my wedding stationery match the wedding style?
If the wedding will be a traditional one, then one should not forget that the wedding cards should have a matching design. How about giving your guests a hint of the upcoming traditional celebration with traditional wedding invitations. This is also the perfect moment to inform the wedding guests of the dress code. Just add a comment to your traditional wedding invitation and the traditional celebration can get started!

In order to give the finishing touch to the table decorations, you can order menus, place cards or even laser cut wine labels or packages for guest gifts in the same design. Present a well-thought out, unified concept to your guests that perfectly complements the decorations and reflects the traditional, rustic style of your wedding.

And now it's time to enjoy some inspirations of wonderful traditional but yet modern weddings we photographed within the last years. Happy wedding planning to all brides-to-be out there!
