Vintage Wedding Props Your Friends Haven’t Thought of Yet

Read any wedding blog and you’ll notice that vintage wedding props such as suitcases, typewriters and birdcages seem to be taking over! The popularity of these repurposed treasures is no surprise— vintage wedding props are affordable, and they’re an easy way to bring charm and whimsy to your reception space. With yard sale season in full swing, now is a great time to start hunting for vintage wedding props.

Besides the popular vintage wedding props we mentioned above there are plenty of items that can be reinvented for your wedding day. For instance, you can use vintage bottles to create a custom shabby-chic chandelier; reuse an old scale as part of your dessert table display or craft a unique bunting out of hand-me-down handkerchiefs. In place of the ubiquitous birdcage, why not use a vintage picnic basket to collect greeting cards? Vintage typewriters look great in photos, but an old-fashioned cash register will provide the same effect, plus you can store candy in the drawer. If you’re not the type of person who enjoys searching high and low for treasures, find a company in your area that rents vintage wedding props. Need more inspiration for your big day?
