how to use vintage furniture & accessories for wedding decorations
Wedding with inspiration
Not sure how the wine is so popular, although the Huffington Post has publicly declared that the wine is out of date, it seems to have gained more steam and turned from the countryside to country fashion.
There are opportunities in every industry (i. e.
, This is the code for smart people and they know how to catch it when they see a good thing! )
Of course, the wedding industry is no exception.
Savvy business minded people soon began to get to know something about the retro craze and began offering brides vintage furniture for sale or rental that popped up on wedding sites all over the place.
However, using vintage furniture and accessories for your wedding is an art that doesn\'t look like your aunt Susie\'s garage sale!
What antiques do you want for your wedding?
Consider the cost before you take the rental route to get vintage pieces to create the look you want.
Unless your wedding budget continues until the back of the Moon, renting is probably not the most affordable option for you.
You really want to see the price.
Start collecting pictures of your inspiration, a place like Pinterest is a great start when you collect a bunch (
Pinterest is very addictive! )
Look at the recurring themes.
Is this a nice button sofa? Its crooked legs catch your eyes.
Is Queen Anne a beautiful secretary?
Think about it before you put your efforts in.
How will you use the bride dollars earned from these pieces.
If you just like what the antique sofa looks like in some style photos, the bride and groom sit together and look at each other, you may want to reconsider.
If the sofa is in the center of the reception area, it is completely different.
Look for parts with a specific purpose.
For example, can that old table be a sign for guests?
On the table by the window and the old door?
Can Queen Anne\'s secretary make a lovely presentation for the dessert buffet?
Don\'t be rushed to rent without considering how you will use them.
Retro Wedding in budget you can get the same look at a lower price without expensive vintage wedding rental company, but for couples who got engaged yesterday and wanted to get married in three months, this is not what!
This includes collecting over time, maybe a year or more, not to mention finding a place to store everything before the wedding.
However, if you collect antiques yourself, the meaning of each piece of clothing, especially if they are handed to heir, will make the wedding look more beautiful.
Not only do you have time, but you also have to consider how you will ship your gorgeous loot once all the collection is finished.
While it seems attractive to bump a friend in a truck to move things, is this really a bargain?
Depending on the distance you have to move the item, consider the cost of gasoline (
This is the only friendship! )
Travel back and forth many times. Ugh!
It would be great if you had a friend with truck and trailer!
If not, you might want to rent a car like U-Haul.
If you don\'t ship your antique furniture long distances, it won\'t be as expensive as you think.
In this way, everything can be moved at once and you can have these friends unload the truck instead of driving.
