Looking for ways to enhance your vintage-style wedding? We have some easy tips to help you use your wedding favors to add some vintage flair to your reception.
There are countless ways to use your wedding favors to add some vintage flair to your reception, but we have some tips that are easy to implement no matter how subtle or dramatic you intend your vintage decor to be. Wedding favors are small details when compared to the grand scheme of things, but they have the power to alter the mood and feel of your wedding reception in a big way.
If you’re having a vintage-style wedding, make them work for you to enhance that vintage flair by using the following tips:
Set the scene—Before you begin adding vintage style to your wedding reception, start by considering the favors themselves and how you want to create a romantic, old-fashioned effect with them on the tables. Begin by setting the stage—in this case, your tables—before you even choose your favors. For example, choose table linens and floral arrangements that create a vintage feel, and then choose favors that will complement what you’ve created.
Something old and something new—Even if your favors for wedding don’t have a specific, vintage theme, you can still create one. Try placing your wedding favors in worn-out jewelry boxes or vintage jars. You can also fill small, Victorian-style vases with your favors or use hand-painted garden boxes.
Blend shabby with chic—Blending shabby style with chic style is a great approach for the modern bride who wants to use her wedding favors to enhance her vintage-style decor. Nothing looks more romantic and stylish than adding something worn and old-fashioned with fresh, contemporary accents. Try placing your modern wedding favors next to your tables and place Victorian birdcage accents around them, such as birdcage-style tea lights or ceramic potpourri holders.
To add vintage flair to your wedding by using a wedding favor, remember to blend old things with new and to choose your favors and reception table decor carefully by selecting items that have worn-out accents and designs that have a homemade look.
