Vintage decor ideas for your wedding

With vintage being quite a popular decor style for many brides, we decided to ask Carla from Moi Decor what she recommends to produce that vintage look effortlessly.

"The key thing is to not worry if everything doesn’t match exactly. It doesn’t have to be perfect," says Carla. The charm with going vintage with a shabby chic or even a rustic twist is that it's laid back and you have carte blanche in terms of matching what you like. The trick is to not go too overboard or get it too cluttered.

Vintage books as props or centrepieces:
Books piled up and bound with string or twine is a lovely way to incorporate the vintage theme. You can take it a step further by also opening the books and have them function as a display for your table number and your menu.

Typewriters:
These add a touch of nostalgia and are a great prop to create a vintage display. If you can get an older typewriter to work, even better, as it can function as tool for your guestbook table where your guests can write a message.

Milk cans and crates: Tap into the barnyard country chic look with some of these items to add authenticity and focal points for your event.

Suitcases:
This is also an easy way to set the vintage tone and they make great props for photos. You can use suitcases for confetti, your guest cards, or to house your wedding favours.

Shutters:
This is a great way to display your table seating or your menu. You can even use it as a backdrop for photos.

Lemonade bottles and Glass Beverage dispensers:
This is a great touch for your beverage table and creates a wonderful focal point. Dress up your little bottles with some ribbon and use some cute straws to perfect the look.

Scales:
Old school scales are also a great way to add some vintage cuteness to either your buffet or candy table (use them as tart or cakes stands) or a guest table, with some pretty flowers placed on top.

Baby trophies and teacups:
These are so cute and can be peppered throughout the table settings, housing little roses or just left plain as is.

For some DIY tips, consider handmade bunting or pom poms (tutorial can be found here) and some country flowers such as lavender and babys breath.

  5. A shocking testimony of how i got back my husband. Getting him back after separation was a very difficult issue for me because he went to settle down with another lady, i already had two children for him already. I have tried to make contacts with him to come back home yet he refuse, each time i look at his kids i become more sad and i needed him at my side to raise the children together. I was so lucky i finally got the help i needed, i went on a search and i saw Priest Ajigars contact. People say he is a very powerful spell caster that he can put an end to relationship problem, fertility issues, causes that disturb destiny, he is also good in curing different diseases. He is such a special man gifted with powers and reliable spell caster that have a cure to most problems of life. My husband is back to me and we are living happily as it used to be, Priest Ajigar have done what i could never have done with my own powers, i'm also very happy that i will have a very lovely Christmas with my family here is USA. Here is his email in case you need help too (priestajigarspells@live.com)
