Becky & Jimmy
We love how Becky and Jimmy decided to have a destination wedding in Tennessee all the way from Chicago! Their country chic theme included their wedding party wearing cowboy boots, a boat oar guest book, Jack Daniels lollipops, a DIY bar menu and take-out sliders at the end of the night. We can tell they wanted to treat their family and friends with real southern hospitality.
How to create a vintage wedding using fun products on Etsy.com (or your local flea market)?
1. Search ideas for Vintage Veils.
2. Find classic, antique, goblets for vases. If they are shallow, like in the board below, fill with water and place a single flower to float about 1/2 inch above the rim (white peonies are a great floral to use for this idea).
3. Discover the use of old vintage books for centerpieces and guestbook/entrance tables. If you’re going with a particular theme or you and your fiance have a favorite time period, find books written then.
4. Snag hollowed out frames and paint them white (if they aren’t already). To make them look weathered, here’s a how-to on weathering wood.
5. Get creative and unique with your table numbers. Have a calligraphy artist write out each number on a piece of dark, rustic colored paper.
5. Be inspired by those that have loved before you. For example, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Find your favorite quotes and surround your venue with them, either on towels, painted on wooden boards, or printed on the back or inside of your programs.
6. Invite your guests in a style that is similar to a love letter. Use Scripts whenever possible, like they did years ago when writing love letters with quill pens. An invitation of true classic, vintage, elegance, is typed in either an old sans serif font, or written in a flowing, timeless script.

Kandis + Cory
Knox City, Texas
Kandis and Cory were married in pure hometown style. Guests gathered at Kandis’ parents B&B, in Munday Texas. The ceremony and reception was held at a local rustic activity hall called, The Wooden Nickle. Kandis wore shoes made from recycled plastic, and put together a wishing tree where guests could hand “wishes” for the Bride and Groom. Centerpieces were gorgeous local flowers placed in aqua mason jars. You have to take time to look at every tiny detail of this wedding!
A very special thanks to Stephanie of Stephanie Hunter Photography for letting us share her beautiful work from this wedding!
