IMO this board is pretty but the only actual image from the 40s looks to be that b&w street photo. That’s a bit silly since there are TONS of 1940s photos out there for the picking!

What is the feeling you are hoping to evoke? Do you want a ready made board or photos to work with? There are a lot of resources out there for original images, one of them being the Library of Congress

I’m thinking along the same lines a MissBoPeep.  In the UK you can hire vintage cutlery and china (and cut glass). Very country english garden…

 

ETA: garlands of pretty posies and bunting would work well inside too.

Some random pix–and like PP said 1940s country china is not hard to find in antique shops. Also, you can usually come across the little hats, gloves, shawls, etc. there too if you want those sorts of dress accessories.

@MissBoPeep: Absolutely stunning!

@jessiesbabe: I imagined you wanting more inspiration of a LA style wedding as opposed to a vintage country wedding; because of your original post. I can find some more vintage country themed pics for ya if that’s what you’re after.

This is my favorite veil.  Sorry it’s so huge!
