When I got married, I was living in San Francisco and was lucky enough to have a gorgeous wedding, with the ceremony at the iconic City Hall and lunch with our loved ones at one of our favourite restaurants, followed by cocktails for all our friends at a jazz era bar. I wasn't the "traditional wedding" type and firmly believe that you should follow your heart and your own style when it comes to your own special day. Whisper it, this bride even wore black...
And if you're a lover of vintage like I am, then it's easy to add some flair to your decor for your own wedding or special celebration. But you don't want your wedding reception looking like a pastiche or worse, a museum, so find some subtle ways to nod to the vintage lover in you, with carefully selected pieces that reflect your style. The best thing about vintage is that you're also recycling, re-using and giving a long life to every item, no single use plastic here!
I love this wedding scene from Junebug Weddings - 70s inspired and full of rich, autumnal tones. Displaying the cake on a vintage wooden box is a fabulous idea, bringing earthiness to a fantastic creation! And the brass candlesticks are a chic alternative to cake topper candles.
You can shop a similar look here.
If you're looking for an eco-friendly and beautiful way to display flowers on your tables, then vintage jam jars and pickle jars are the way to go.
You can cluster them, use them for individual blooms, or go big with an old glass sweet jar, filled to the brim with a bouquet. The best thing is you can keep and re-use them, or gift them to guests.
