Things are clicking, you guys!
I mentioned previously how enamored I was with Relics Vintage Rentals and what an amazing resource they were for cool, vintage décor rentals. We made an appointment a few weeks ago, and have finally started making some decision on items and I couldn’t be happier seeing this coming together.
The first thing we knew we wanted was chalkboards. We chose two different chalkboards. One for our ceremony program and another for our menu. For our budget, this was an inexpensive way to have these things, and not print them. We chose two gold toned frames, and Relics is working on the writing for us.
Suitcases were another item that we knew we wanted immediately. We wanted a place to put flip-flops that people could change into if they’re dancing, and I thought we could use one for a place to put cards. The cards case we decided on isn’t shown here, but it’s a small, worn brown leather case.
Our venue has a lot of natural elements such as brick, skylights and timbers. We chose some birch votive holders to stay in line with those features. I am not intending to have the table decor much more than these holders and a table number. The tables are relatively small, and dinner is served family style, so we have that to contend with as well.
We’re pulling a vintage typewriter font through a lot of elements, and so it only makes sense to have a vintage typewriter. I thought it might be a great addition to the guestbook table.
A few items we didn’t get pictures of that we decided on afterward were some vintage books, amber glass bottles and a variety of vintage brass vessels we can use for flower arrangements. My absolute favorite addition is a burgundy vintage rug that we’re planning to use at the altar and at the sweetheart table post-ceremony. Unfortunately, we don’t have a photo of it yet, but I will post it if I’m able to get one soon!
