Vintage Tableware for Your Wedding
If you are uninspired by modern mass-produced tableware you may wish to consider hiring vintage tableware for your wedding.
Every piece has its own individual history, which will bring a touch of romance and nostalgia to your wedding.
Back in the mid 20th century couples would traditionally receive a set of beautiful china crockery as an engagement or wedding present.
More often than not it would be kept for years in a display cabinet, only coming out occasionally for ‘special occasions’
No doubt this is the reason a lot of this tableware is still around today, and how lovely to give it a new lease of life !
Not only is vintage crockery functional, it can also double up as vintage wedding décor. The statement pieces such as teapots and three-tiered cake stands are just beautiful.
Often decorated with delicate floral designs , these unique vintage pieces bring colour and add height to your wedding tables. This helps to create interest and draw in the eye without the need for huge and often costly table centrepieces.
Your guests will be sitting at the dining tables for some time. So, why not give them something beautiful to look at that can also be a talking point.
