With wedding season in full swing so are all of the other pre-wedding events that lead up to the big day. A bridal shower is a wonderful tradition to honor the bride and it provides an opportunity for all of the women in the bride’s life to get together, share advice and celebrate. Today I wanted to spotlight some ideas that would work if you were hosting or planning a vintage style bridal shower. Here are a few products which I featured in my appearance on the Better CT show today.
Vintage Bridal Shower Ideas from Maggie Lord and Rustic Wedding Chic
Invitation – The invitation sets the tone for any event so there is no better way to invite guest to a vintage stye bridal shower then by using a vintage style handkerchief invitation. These handkerchief style invitation from Benign Objects are girly and sophisticated and fit the vintage theme perfectly. There is something so sweet about these hankie invitations and guest will be charmed for sure when they show up in the mail.
Vintage China – Nothing says vintage more than a table that is set with beautiful and delicate vintage china. Today there are rental companies that specialize in 100% vintage china and often times will help you put together the perfect vintage chic place settings. From soft pinks to floral patterns, mixing and matching is the name of the game when it comes to putting together a vintage style table setting. Check out some ideas over at the CT based company Something Borrowed Vintage.
Flower Arrangements – When putting together a wedding or bridal shower with a vintage theme I always suggest thinking outside of the box when it comes to floral arrangements. My favorite vintage theme floral design comes from blending beautiful together with unlikely vases. I suggest using tea cups or pitchers for a vintage look and you can go even one step further and get tea cups with the brides initials on them for fun decor twist.
Fun Favor – Favors are a great way to send guest home with a little treat and remembrance from the day. For a vintage themed bridal shower I would suggest some pretty little beauty products wrapped up in cute little boxes. These beauty products come from Farm Couture which offer high end skin care items all with a farm chic theme.
