As a wedding vendor, we love getting to see the changing fashions and trends in the industry -- and we've definitely noticed vintage pieces appearing more and more! Bringing in a borrowed or vintage piece to your wedding or event decor is so easy. Thrift stores all over are full of vintage accessories that are ideal for filling your space with charm! It's also a great way to infuse some personality into your gathering by using that are meaningful to you or significant to the history of the event.
Vintage dishes can be easily used as centerpieces, like Bontanica Specialty Rentals did here:
You can also use vintage or borrowed fabric or linens for table runners or decor. For this, we love our natural lace runner, to bring a little rustic vibe into your tablescapes!
If you're planning a wedding, this is the perfect time to have your "something borrowed"! We love seeing everything from grandparents' china to furniture from parents or loved ones (mismatched chairs for the head table are lovely!) being used at a wedding.
A few other ideas to bring a vintage vibe to your gathering include:
Linens in an unexpected fabric: velvet brings back memories of the 60s while sequins invokes the 70s and 80s. Vintage doesn't just mean thrift store!
Antiqued containers: stock up on old iron vases or reclaimed wood boxes for unique centerpieces or surprising decor!
Greenery and faux plants: draping vines and scattered pots add an extra layer of detail to your decor. Fortunately for you brides, decorators, and designers on a budget, these are cheap to buy and so easy to set up. You don't even need to worry about watering them!
For any brides who have used this vintage trend in their own events, how did you capture that feeling in your decor? What pieces did you use?
