You’ve heard the rhyme “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”. Read on for five ways to add “something old” into the your wedding day.
We’ve come up with a few ideas to keep the tradition alive that will add sentimental value and still fit in with your style.
A few hanging windows, frames or doors can be used as a creative ceremony backdrop for an “inside” feel outdoors. If you’re ceremony is inside, consider taking advantage of decorating and highlighting large windows as an aisle focal point. Salvaged and antique windows are perfect for vintage weddings. Keep the glass inside the panes or use just the frames as decorations, seating charts, signs or photo props. You can find old windows at flea markets, yard sales, resale shops, or consider renting pieces from a vintage rental company.
Rent an old classic vehicle to use as your getaway car at the end of the night or as part of the decor.
Share a reading from a classic piece of literature at your ceremony. Think Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, and poets like William Blake or John Keats.
Wear a family heirloom. Whether it’s your grandma’s pearl necklace or your groom’s great aunt’s art deco bracelet, a piece of jewelry that happens to be a family heirloom is the ideal something old.
No matter your choice, make sure it’s something that holds sentimental value or that you absolutely love, love, love.
