It’s officially winter… well it has been for a while and we’re loving it. We have a whole collection of winter decor available for rent and one of my favourite things we have is vintage snowshoes. They’re so unique and rustic, but in a classy way. Here’s some of our favourite ways we’ve seen them used in weddings.
Left to Right / Top to Bottom:
ONE: This ceremony backdrop from Alberta is just beautiful! We love how it embraces everything wonderful about a vintage winter.
TWO: What a fun cupcake display! Yes, I’ll take two of those.
THREE: Hung on a rustic wall above the cake is the perfect way to display vintage snowshoes.
FOUR: Can we talk about how fun they are as a photo prop?
FIVE: This outdoor winter wedding display features just a few of our favourite things. Plus… I spy some cupcakes hiding on there!
SIX: This gown is stunning on it’s own, but we love how it looks photographed with these vintage snowshoes! I think you could put snowshoes next to anything and they’d belong.
I’m not going to beat around the bush. That ceremony backdrop has stolen my heart. A close second is those cupcakes. But it could be because I’m craving cupcakes. What’s your favourite? How do you feel about snowshoes as wedding decor?
Skeleton keys, especially the vintage ones, are so tiny adorable. I always wonder what they were created to open- they all look like they belong in an ancient castle. Just me? Either way, now that they’re not functional for the most part any more, we’re lucky enough to collect them for using as wedding decor. Here’s some of our favourite ways they get used to spruce up the big day.
Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
ONE: If you weren’t in love with these vintage keys before… are you now? Seeing them en masse is one of my favourites! They make such lovely takeaways for guests and double as seating cards.
TWO: Not one, not two, but three keys layered and tied around a simple mason jar floral arrangement, stacked on top of some aqua vintage books. Is there anything about that sentence you don’t like?
THREE: Vintage books tied with cloth ribbon get a special touch with vintage skeleton keys to finish them off. This makes such a simple yet unique table centre for a wedding or bridal shower.
FOUR: A well dressed groom! We love how simply this skeleton key brings style and personality to a basic buttoner.
FIVE: Reason number 1000 to love them… they make for amazing ring photos. I had a hard time choosing which key and ring photo to put here but this rustic background was too good to pass up.
SIX: I had to throw a second seating arrangement in here. Displayed on a standing vintage door, skeleton keys make a stunning display at an outdoor wedding!
SEVEN: The casual way these little gold keys hang off of this floral arrangement is pretty much perfection. Just when we thought we were over burlap… this.
Now, can you even pick a favourite? I did… and it’s number one. But it’s a tight race with number seven coming in next. Have you spotted these little gems used in other unique ways? We’d love to hear about it!
What type of motor lacking transport is so charming and chic that it can play centre stage at a wedding? Nope, not the roller blades or skateboard. We’re talking vintage bicycles. And is there any reason we shouldn’t be? They’re SO much fun and crazy adorable. Let’s look at some inspiration to get you dreaming of cycling away to your dream wedding.
Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
ONE: If you love florals and vintage and charm… check out this whole wedding, really. I wanted to save every photo from it to use in round ups for the future here on Bespoke because there are so many perfect ideas! This bike filled with florals made it’s way from ceremony to reception (talk about easy to move around!), making it twice as loved.
TWO: Vintage bikes as signage? You know it! We especially love these arrows, but that could be because they’re one of the most used pieces in our inventory 😉
THREE: Vintage bicycles make for amazing wedding photos. Period.
FOUR: Can I convince you to go check out this whole wedding? I know this little vignette looks simple- bike basket for cards, little takeaways for guests in the crate… but it’s one of the most charming weddings I’ve ever seen. Hands down.
FIVE: This bike is fitted with a bright vintage crate and bold florals to match. Really, could it get any more fun?
SIX: Are you dreaming of cycling away from your dream wedding yet? The tin cans and signs are so adorable on this couple’s… if you do, you should definitely steal this idea!
SEVEN: The balloon on this bike just makes it so cheeky! The classic basket full of florals and handmade pennant welcome sign is in classic country territory… until you add that peachy balloon and, well… we like it a lot.
Can you even pick a favourite? I would have to say that the entire wedding from number four gets my love and affection but if we’re just talking the images here? Numero Uno. How could I not with those blooms spilling all over the place! #dreamy
