Baby’s Breath Birdcage Use this delicate, powdery ornament to grace gift or dessert tabletops, or even cake stands at your romantic wedding. For this vintage wedding idea, start with one or two metal bird cages as a base for your decoration. Fill the cages with sprigs of dried baby’s breath, allowing a few off shooting twigs to peek out from between the bars.

Vintage Vessels Incorporate a flourish of country charm into your vintage wedding decorations with antique milk jugs and schoolhouse chalkboards. Emulate this rustic vignette by placing a wood framed blackboard easel on your card or gift table. Use a white chalk marker to write your sweet love story timeline for guests to enjoy. Next, place a vintage milk jug next to the chalkboard, and fill it with preserved flowers, such as caspia. Finish off your country chic look by arranging a candle-filled Mason jar wrapped in twine in front of the board.

Perennial Pictures For heartfelt, memorable centerpieces at your vintage-inspired wedding, showcase black and white photos of you and your sweetie for your guests to enjoy. For this decoration, use a silver platter as the base for your centerpiece. Sprinkle a layer of white sparkle sand on your platter to add a glamorous, textured component to your display. Next, partially fill two hurricane glass shades with wine corks, and secure ivory pillar candles in the center of each vase. Select a small black and white photo to attach to the outside of each shade, and string a wire pearl garland around the vase and photo to keep them in place.
