A Vintage Wedding

It’s wedding season! If you or someone you know is in the midst of planning a wedding, you’ve surely spent countless hours searching websites, like Pinterest, gathering ideas to make it a perfect day. The tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” has been taken to a new level with the current trend of incorporating antiques, vintage goods, and architectural pieces into the wedding decor. This past weekend Southern Accents was honored to play a part in a local wedding by providing quite a few large antique architectural pieces that were used to transform a beautiful new venue into an extraordinary wedding scene.

Antique and vintage glass pieces in a combination of clear, white, and pink glass were used on every table to add a touch of elegance to the vintage themed wedding.

Local wedding planner Sharon Tucker, who is a collector of antiques and architectural pieces and a regular Southern Accents customer, knew exactly what she was looking for when she brought her bride to our showroom. Her vision for this particular wedding included the use of quite a few salvaged doors and large wrought iron pieces. While strolling through our warehouse and iron lot, the two were almost giddy with excitement as they poured through our collections and selected the perfect elements for this vintage spring wedding.

The bride and groom said their “I do’s” in front of two matching antique doors and antique wrought iron fence. The antique iron piece, which was hung on the brick wall, featured a heart design perfect for this special occasion. Two salvaged doors positioned at the entrance of the venue were used to display the beautifully created handmade wreaths. A mix of salvaged white doors were chosen and strategically placed along the walls to add an element of light to an otherwise dark room. Antique mirrors and vintage glassware were used throughout to add a touch of elegance.

While several antique wrought iron pieces were used throughout the venue, our favorite use was a piece of iron fencing placed at the guest registration table. Twine was strung on a beautiful piece of iron fencing and used to display childhood photos of the bride and groom.

By renting the pieces, it also became a very affordable way to add high impact.
