Organize your vintage wedding: good addresses

Vintage? Yes, I want it ! It's decided, the decor of your wedding will be retro! Patinated furniture, antique china tableware, decorative objects with the charms of the past ... that's what you like, and I can only approve! But beware, imagining a vintage-themed decor can take you forever ... especially if you have challenged yourself to survey garage sales every weekend looking for all the rare pearls on your list. To give you a little boost, I have therefore prepared a small inventory of all the good addresses to consult for an organization at the top! Deco, furniture or dishes for rent, DIY to make, inspiration boards, follow the guide!

Addresses for renting old dishes

Who says vintage wedding, necessarily says granny's dishes! Plates and dessert plates, water and wine glasses, silver cutlery, decanters, mismatch, and the result is superb. Simple as pie you say to me, only if one has a sufficient enough stock to set the table for nearly 200 people… Unless you are an inveterate bargain hunter, the task promises to be difficult. So it's time to head to vintage tableware rental services! - Vintage tableware : On the Marine and Jérémy website, two flea market enthusiasts, find everything you need for your table: from plates to fruit bowls, including teapots, decanters, pie servers… Count 4.80 € per person for a "guest kit".
