6 MUST-Have Items for Your Vintage Inspired Wedding

As your wedding day approaches, you are reminded of the many hours spent as a little girl visiting with Grandma and discovering a treasure trove of the prettiest things you had ever seen. Vintage is about a bold mix of old and new, featuring vintage inspired colors, feminine fabrics and antique finishes that stand in striking contrast to the otherwise modern and minimal space. These 6 products have definitely proven to be some of our personal favorites and are exactly what  you need to bring this theme to life.

Vintage Wedding Theme

Gone to the birds

We don’t think there is anything more vintage than a beautiful antique birdcage. This is a stunning piece on its own, but with the addition of pearls or a tasteful floral arrangement, your birdcage can be transformed into something completely original.

Let them eat cake

Add some vintage flare to your cake (or dessert) display. This cake server set is just like the one your Grandmother used to have. From the intricate detail to the flawless silver finish, it is a detail that is sure to be admired by your wedding guests.

A place for place cards

A place card holder is such a small and practical item that it can often be overlooked as a potential decor piece. These little trinkets provide great opportunity to really show off your theme. This style is one of our favorites! Complete with an aged finish they are perfect for tying your place setting together.

Gifts for the Guys

The flask is a classic groomsmen gift that has proven to stand the test of time.  A unique style, theme appropriate design and delicious?  What more could you ask for out of a groomsmen gift? We know for a fact that these will be a hit – especially when you gift them pre-filled!

All boxed up

When searching for the perfect wedding décor piece, there are 2 things that should be top of mind. Beauty and versatility. These distressed vintage boxes can be used in a multitude of ways, not to mention the number of things you can fill them with to enhance their beauty. Pearls, flowers and lace are some of our favorite fillers!

Finishing touches

These place card holders were inspired by an eclectic mix of salt and pepper finds. With the addition of a few pretty flowers, these shakers create a stunning display of vintage perfection. Invite your guests to take one home as a novel favor they won’t soon forget!

Guiding your guests

We love these frames for 3 reasons:

1) They can be used as table numbers, picture frames, or  event signage.

2) They are a gorgeous addition to any table décor.

3) They can be used after the wedding!

Need we say more?

Props and decor items play such an important role in setting the tone and transforming a venue space in a way that will reflect your theme. Every detail no matter how large or small will work together to infuse your wedding with a personalized touch. Find more favorite vintage items here and customize your vintage style!
