Vintage in Your Wedding

Melissa, at Style Me Pretty recently blogged about “12 Ways to Incorporate Vintage Decor Into Your Wedding.” I love this article! This is what New England Vintage is all about. She says, “there is something so gosh darn charming + romantic about finding treasures from another time and place that make our hearts skip a beat.” I completely agree.

The article makes twelve fantastic suggestions, many that I use in New England Vintage styling!

Banners made from old handkerchiefs: (can’t say that these were made from old hankies, but I love the look)

The article also suggests vintage frames,  mini banners, and preserves wrapped in vintage fabric as favors.

I’ll add a few of my own, too! These some of my favorite ways to incorporate vintage items into a wedding:

Lighting:

Oil lamps, hurricane, lamps, and vintage candle sticks. An evening wedding needs table lighting, so why not make it special?

Lace:

Lace tablecloths were treasured items, stored away in a chest or hutch for decades. Now they are easy to find second-hand, and add lots of romance to your event.

And Glass Bottles:

Glass is always beautiful. It can be 100 years old but still catch the light in just the perfect way. Don’t be afraid of colors!
