Retro and Vintage Weddings

New to the Board!

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to introduce myself since I am new to the board.  I am marrying my high school sweetheart (we have been dating for five years, started when I was a hs senior).  I am a HUGE history buff and majored in it in college, however, my FI not so much.  So this is my major road block.  I would love to do a completely vintage (1890-1910) era wedding but I cant go too overboard because I dont want it to be to costumey and not include my FI's likes.  

So what I have tried to do is create a theme centered around a vintage royal garden theme.  I am using lace, flowers, lanterns, several different shades of purple, Fleur-de-lis, and birdcages.  I am trying to do a combination of vintage and modern to keep us both happy.  Do you ladies have any advice so that I can maintain the vintagey feel without making my FI feel like he is part of a living musuem?
