When I think ‘Vintage’, I think ‘Timeless, Classic & Sentimental”.

Just the way the celebration of your love journey should be, on your wedding day and well into your blissful life together. Although it’s timeless, it doesn’t have to be costly. Here I have included some handy tips on how to master a DIY Vintage themed wedding of your dreams. Firstly, it’s all about the collecting – from all resources. Muster up a collection of pearls, diamonds, lace, teacups, plates & saucers etc. Search high and low through your grandmothers, mothers, aunties’ closets and any second-hand store you come across. Even some cheap stores offer some fabulous glassware and nick-nacks to use.

Forget the old fashioned guest book

Wooden framed guest board

An ideal guest board and memorial frame to keep after the wedding would be a cheap wooden frame sitting on an easel with the guests name on it. Either place names on smaller boards (as shown in picture) or hand-write the guests on a large piece of paper and  attach . Either way, very effective and attractive. To buy ready made, you can purchase pictured from The Wedding Tree Company.
