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!
Vintage cake and dessert stands:
Authentic dairy crates:
Vintage suitcase for cards:
Vintage lounge seating:
Vintage flower vessels:
Mismatched table settings:
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:
Oil lamps, hurricane, lamps, and vintage candle sticks. An evening wedding needs table lighting, so why not make it special?
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!
Thank you to Melissa at Style Me Pretty for sharing my love of the old. Vintage decor adds a magical and timeless quality to weddings.
