Other Than Table Numbers

WHAT TABLE ARE WE SITTING AT DEAR?  There are so many possibilities for labeling your reception tables, so why not let your imagination run away with you with some non-number table numbers?  Your guests will love your creativity when instead of numbers, it’s famous pairings, famous couples, your favorite vintage car, or photo of a loved one past.

We love the “Milk & Cookies” idea!  Extend this theme with Peanut Butter & Jelly, Macaroni & Cheese, or Spaghetti & Meatballs?  Perhaps the happy couple will honeymoon in France?  We adore the vintage signs of France’s wine regions.  The table centerpieces could be street signs of the couple’s favorite city!  Let what you love inspire your creativity.  Thank you to Pinterest for these fabulous and creative ideas!

Sorry:
- Please recheck your ID.

Of course, traditional table numbers can add up to be pretty fabulous.  However you chose to seat your guests, there are numerous creative ways to display seating arrangements.  For more inspiration, follow us at http://www.pinterest.com/millcrestvintag .

The bride was beautifully adorned in an authentic 1960’s vintage mermaid cut damask wedding gown and vintage-jeweled birdcage veil.  Her shoes, by Sam and Libby, complemented her Swarovski accessories and unbelievable crystal belt.  The groom wore a dapper pinstriped suit from Moore’s and a bit of Swarovski bling himself.  SWOON!

Eclectic Lakefront Vintage Wedding Inspiration Fabulous food served in an easy and elegant environment was the experience the couple wanted for their 98 guests. Guests we served an amazing three course meal inspired by local and organic Manitoban ingredients and were invited to enjoy a refill of their Sweet tea lemonade before hitting the dance floor to the bride and groom’s own personal play list.  Special touches that made this wedding really pop against the fresh, green backdrop of the lakefront venue included; hand selected vintage vases and milk glass, birds and birdcages, steel colored damask table runners against white linens, yellow daisies and white zinnias, and fresh lemons and lemonade. The best part – many of these lovely details were DIY!!  This bride knows style and we LOVE it!

Crystal bead and pink carnation flower garlands swayed from the tree under which the ceremony was held. Scattered potted petunias that Scott’s mom planted, along with paper lanterns and hanging strings of café lights completed the rustic, yet romantic theme.

While scouring wedding blogs for inspiration, Rachel fell in love with a vintage wedding dress from the collection at Mill Crest Vintage. She wasn’t local to the vintage boutique, so she took a leap of faith and ordered it online. With a few alterations and tweaks, including adding buttons up the back, Rachel had found the vintage wedding dress of her dreams.

Rustic wooden tables set with mismatched bottles, doilies as runners, real vintage glassware, and beautiful vintage silver perfectly set the tone for this rustic and romantic vintage theme. To add a personal touch to their special day, Rachel and Scott included a few DIY wedding details such as the dinner menus, which were cleverly written on reclaimed doors. The homemade grape jelly wedding favors were lovingly made by the bride’s parents, who live in rural Indiana. The place settings were accented with sprigs of rosemary from Scott’s parents’ backyard. Fragrant centerpieces of succulents complemented with sprigs of rosemary were scattered throughout the tables, along with vases filled with fresh flowers for a comfortable, yet elegant touch.

Rachel and Scott also shipped in some famous Tell City Pretzels from the bride’s hometown. Other intimate and personal touches also included vintage wedding photos of each of the couple’s family members in attendance and their 60 guests were invited to use the vintage typewriter to sign the guest list.
