A Handcrafted Wedding || Antique Details

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

I've always been the kind of person that preferred antique everything. So we decided to incorporate that as much as we could into our wedding. I had so much fun finding vintage treasures to use in our wedding!

Milk Glass || We did a milk glass theme throughout the entire wedding. I scoured estate sales and antique stores for months and bought as much milk glass as I could! We used the milk glass for centerpieces, the photo booth and anything else that needed a container. I even asked the cake baker to make the wedding cake look like hobnail milk glass! The best part is, now I have a rather extensive collection of milk glass that I can use around our new house! :)

On a side note, when I told my husband I wanted to use milk glass, he looked at me funny and said, "Wouldn't milk jugs look kinda dumb?" Apparently he had never heard of milk glass! lol

Initials || I found these letters at an antique store and knew they would look great at the wedding! They went really well with the embroidered initials I posted about here!

Handkerchiefs || As a wedding favor, I gave each of the women at the wedding a vintage handkerchief. These were so much fun to find! It took a while, but after scouring antique stores throughout East Tennessee, I was able to find about 50 of these beauties! :) I was pretty picky about the handkerchiefs I included. I only chose pieces that had embroidered flowers on them. They looked great and the women at the wedding really appreciated the gift!
