A Bingo-Themed Wedding: The Perfect Mix of Modern and Vintage

A Bingo-Themed Wedding: The Perfect Mix of Modern and Vintage

When people consider a vintage theme for their wedding, it’s mostly because they want to exude elegance and sophistication, without having to go over their budget on décor, or forcing their guests to invest in clothes that are too expensive just to fit in with the theme. In this sense, vintage weddings allow a great balance between elegance and functionality, and this makes them a great choice.

Still, some people can be uncomfortable with carrying a completely vintage theme. If you’re looking to add a touch of modern into your own wedding plans, you might want to consider a bingo-themed wedding.

Bingo is one of those games that have spanned generations, finding its roots in an Italian game from 1530. Over the years it has evolved into the game we all know and love, reached its heyday in the 1950s and slowly trickled down into a more retro pastime. However, in recent years, the game has made a comeback, with the BBC reporting that in the UK, the number of online bingo portals grew from 20 in 2004 to 350 in 2013. Free Bingo Hunter, a website specializing in cataloguing these online bingo portals, has found that each site has made the classic game of bingo into their own with various themes and attractive prizes.

Although not a lot of people still play the game at bingo halls, bingo has undoubtedly generated a following. By embracing modern technology, the industry has come back after its decline in the 60s, and this is something that you can take note of when you’re planning your vintage wedding as well.
