a zartiques wedding

Event staging is a HUGE job. The amount of time and planning that went in to this one was unbelievable - but the end result was so worth it. Our goal for styling this event was to create an entire experience, inspired by our love for vintage. We carefully picked EVERY individual piece used from our Zartiques collection - big and small. We hope these inspire you, to shop with us for your special day. Vintage pieces will add so much character and charm to your day!

cocktail hour was held outside the property's barn - so we dressed it up a little - but what a great background to work with right?

that beautiful old server housed the guest book (find it here) and that little vintage table runner really accented the colors in the florals

old bottles and books are our top two staging "go to" smalls - they look great on a side table and dress up little spaces you don't want to leave bare

sometimes less is more - very simple cocktail tables helped show off the beautiful setting behind them

you don't have to match! oil lamp bases, bottles, and crystal candlesticks grouped together made the perfect little cocktail table centerpieces (this is a great place to save $$ as these things all run a few dollars each, and we always have plenty!)

simple simple simple! pretty gift table with an antique framed picture of the couple, candlesticks, bottles, old mirrors to add some dimension, and a vintage chair to round it off! that galvanized vessel was in the shop for $8... so just think outside the box! you can have a beautiful setup on a budget - we promise!

antique advertising tin made the perfect card box - look for one that fits in with your colors, even an old wooden box would work! decorate around it with some of your florals and you'll be amazed at how pretty it turns out!

we fell in love with this old chair and desperately wanted to incorporate it somehow - turns out it made a great seating chart when paired with this stunning antique frame

brass! all the brass! we went super simple - eucalyptus and candlesticks looked great paired together and was an easy and inexpensive way to tie the reception tables together

yep, you're seeing it right. ALL mix matched vintage chairs - THAT was a big undertaking but the guests loved it! Made the reception tent so remarkably beautiful. You don't have to do your whole reception either - we love this idea just for the bridal party- or even just for the bride and groom "statement seating" for cute couple pictures. Oh and LOOK UP - see those pretty chandeliers? They looked even better that evening reflecting off all the string lights. None of those were more than $60 each and they made the biggest difference!

and finally the cake! The vintage cake topper had "1927" scribbled on the bottom - fun to imagine how many cakes it has graced since then! We've had several old ones in since then, and they've never been more than $12 - so check with us for little things that too! we think this one is pretty charming.

vintage car too?! this old bronco came to life again to cart the bride to the ceremony - and host bride and groom pics (rightfully so for the groom who's a mechanic)
