The Romantic Life....Cottage Style Weddings

The Romantic Life

Cottage Style Weddings

When I think of June, I can't help but reflect back when my husband and I got married several years ago. We chose our wedding colors in soft romantic peach and green, little did I know that was the year that those 2 colors were trending on every bride's list.

Needless to say, our families pitched in and created the most beautiful Cottage Style Wedding worthy of being published in the latest edition of every bridal magazine, including Victoria. Here's a few things that will turn your wedding from ordinary to extraordinary on your special day. You can find these and much more in my shop at I carry an exclusive line of vintage and antique wedding unique one of a kind treasures to fit any budget. Stayed tuned for next weeks blog where it will be about linens.

Tuck pretty flowers in a wonderful vintage vase for your wedding reception table. It's just the perfect height, and then it can be reused year after year. This vase is by American Bisque and still has timeless appeal and style.
Perfect size for those most welcome gift cards. Homer Laughlin vintage china inspired me to repurpose an unloved tray to a work of beauty. Painted in a soft white, it's perfect for tucking small soaps or candles for a romantic evening at home.
Don't forget your bridal attendants. A lovely set of  dreamy peach sherbet lavender sachets is the perfect gift to remind them how much they are appreciated. These are sold in a set of 3, so it's a perfect budget conscious gift. These can be made in more sets should you wish to order a few extras, and one for yourself of course!
Your lovely bridesmaid luncheon should be a reflection of your impeccable style. These gorgeous tea cups and saucers will leave a lasting impression and it really is all about the china!
Your wedding will not be complete without indulging in a gorgeous vintage silver plated cake plate stand. It is one of those "Must Haves" for your reception table, or for your bridal luncheon.

Years ago my mom and I visited England and instantly I fell in love with the culture, the landscape, the concept of finding those hidden treasures and recreating a new use for them.
