I had an amazing wedding …
in a 100 year old stone bed and breakfast …
cocktails in the old barn …
dinner in the greenhouse.
It was a truly fabulous day that I’ll never forget.
But if I had it to to over again …
I’d steal lots of ideas from Dana of Circa Dee.
This stunning bride created tons of amazing vintage wedding ideas you could use for any party.
The birch log cake takes center stage on an old wine barrel cake stand that she borrowed from a vineyard – on the condition that she promised to return it when she was done (don’t worry, she did)!
The theme was “On Our Way to Cape May” (Cape May is a beautiful beach town in NJ).
Any party is about the details and Dana took care of every last one.
She made this DIY trailhead sign from old fence pickets. Guests traveled from all over as you can see.
Hand made wedding invitations set the vintage vibe.
Even a place for everyone to mark their hometown.
A special table (and chairs!) for the couple of honor.
Simple centerpieces in antique blue mixing bowls, tarnished silver and mason jars (that the bride arranged a couple of days before the wedding)!
A vintage Hudson Bay blanket to keep the newlyweds warm.
Even their pup Wilson was all decked out in his seersucker bow tie and leash.
Now that the wedding planning is over, Dana can get back to selling her fabulous vintage finds …
and turning thrift shop finds into fabulous.
See what’s she’s got for sale – including a vintage library card catalog that I’m in love with!
I’ve got at least 10 years (hopefully longer!) until I can plan a wedding for one of my girls …
I’ll store these ideas away in the back of my mind for when that day arrives – thanks Dana!
Make sure you stop by and visit Dana at Circa Dee
