Sometimes setting a vintage mood for your wedding reception can simply involve color and collection.Â Let me explain – as you can see in this beautiful outdoor setting, subtle, rich color and sumptuous fabrics draped freely over the table set the perfect tableaux for a burst of soft, heirloom flowers and large, ornate candelabra.Â Casual, yet inviting and glamorous.
Does someone in your family (or his) have a few of your great-grandmother’s pieces?Â A victorian table set with an antique vase from a family collection makes the perfect wedding book table. Â Slip the pens into a vintage creamer for that extra-special touch!
Your caterer or bakery can provide you with vintage-look cake stands.
Don’t match!Â Find different textures and color collections to add to your vintage feel, like this aged terra-cotta planter bursting, yet again, with heirloom blooms.Â Tier your delicious food by stacking up various levels of styrofoam tiers, then draping with more vintage-colored fabrics.
You know how people dress their outdoor trees in lights at Christmas?Â Use the same concept to hang chandeliers outside! (you know how I am about chandeliers)
And of course, scatter your venue with lovely vintage wedding favors for your guests, so the memories fondly linger on.
Vintage wishes for happy planning!
