Who wants to end up with 30 tea pots or 10 birdcages at the end of a wedding day? Hiring your larger wedding details could save you money and Bohemian Dreams have some of the best around! Here are seven fab finds that will add an on-trend vintage vibe to your reception…
Shabby chic suitcases
Yes, we’ve all got old suitcases lying around but they’re just not quite vintage enough, are they? Get the look bang on by hiring these shabby chic designs – use them to display old family pictures, to store your wedding cards and gifts or just use them alone as vintage decorations. Cute puppy not included by the way!
These distressed white birdcages would look perfect as part of a vintage country garden theme. Use them as table centres, with the table name tied to the top with a piece of ribbon as shown here. Fill them with hydrangea heads for a country look or drape over pearls and lace for a 20s-inspired look.
Ooh la la! Planning a pretty Parisian theme for your reception? Then you need these cute little bottles in your life! We think they’d look great decorating your cake or gift table. Mix them up between tea lights, pop in a few handpicked hydrangea heads and voila.
Pretty, pastel-coloured retro wooden ladders like this have multiple uses at a wedding reception. Use the different levels to display details, or perhaps even your table plan? This quirky arrangement with flowers, birds and bottles would work especially well for an outdoorsy celebration.
Travel maps may be inexpensive to pick up but they wouldn’t look as good as this! We love this vintage-style framed version – the perfect way to display your table plan at a travel-themed reception. Name your tables after places that mean something special to you, or perhaps places you’re hoping to visit on honeymoon, and include vintage luggage tags on your favours to complete the look.
Want to create a real focal point at your reception? Use these Greco-Roman columns to display family photos or floral arrangements at key points around your venue. Did you get married abroad? If you had a Grecian theme, these would make fab decorations for your party back home.
Ditch the traditional guest book and ask your friends and family to type their messages of luck and love on this retro typewriter. A real talking point for your party – how many people do you think will say ‘we used to have one of those’?
