Upgrade to a Bride's Maid!

Old and New

I really like mixing old and new, it usually gives everything a fresh, re-worked feel.  Fashion, especially, is where I put this into effect; Manolos don’t seem like such a drop in the purse if you pair them with a thrift store dress!  But we’re skipping fashion today {come back tomorrow for that! 😉 } and taking a look at two of my favorite ways to incorporate a throwback feel into your wedding with brand new items.

Doilies are not just for grandmas anymore! There have been tons of projects around the web this year that show you how to update the lacey mats. Often seen as dainty and matronly, they now offer both a vintage and modern feel when done correctly.

Groupings of antiqued mercury glass ~ such a lovely centerpiece idea, especially for the holidays!  These will fit in perfectly with any other vintage items or themes but still look effortlessly chic.

  1. I love the candle holders. That green doily dress…it’s certainly a fun idea. Maybe I’d like it better if it was bright pink, like her shoes.
