Inspiration: A rainbow of vintage typewriters

A vintage typewriter can tie your vintage-style wedding together nicely. And what guest wouldn’t love to type a sweet note to the bride and groom on one of these beautiful typewriters.

Bonus: with a little searching, you can find a typewriter in nearly any color to match your wedding decor.

Simply inspiring

I love paper doilies. They make such a lovely little detail for a wedding (when used properly). I’m not talking about a doily under your slice of cake, I’m talking about using them as a repeating theme, tied together with some other lovely elements (in this example, tulle).

And, wow, does The Sweetest Occasion perfect the use of simple paper doilies in this amazing tablescape.


I’m in awe of how very lovely this look is! The colors, the soft details, the simple, yet impactful way that it all ties together.

Vintage Fab Headpiece

Feathers & Frills on Etsy has some fantastic bridal headpieces. I love this dramatic rhinestone headband. It’d look spectacular at a traditional ballroom wedding with a simple strapless gown or a slinky 40s-style dress.

Love. It.

The prices are pretty amazing (the style is comparable to what my local Priscilla of Boston carries) and these pieces make me want to get married all over again!

Details: The Centerpieces

The centerpieces were simple, exactly what I wanted. I purchased 60 old blue Ball quart jars on Craigslist. The day before the wedding, my sister and I purchased 12 bouquets of flowers from Trader Joe’s.

We paired them with tealights and a mixture of bamboo table runners and polka dotted runners. My awesome aunt Vivian sewed the runners and arranged the flowers.

The results: bright, cheery and perfectly matched for our casual spring wedding.
