My vases.  My grandmother and I are very close but she will not be able to be at our beach wedding as she is in a nursing home.  When I graduated college she gave me her collection of beautiful heirloom quality milk glass vases.  I am using them as my centerpieces.

Yes–for our favor display, we’re using cake plates and platters that my mom and I already own. I kind of collect decorative display pieces, so it’s cool that I finally get to use them!

Yep, we used cake plates for our cake table, vases I already owned to hold the bouquets, and some votive holders I already owned.

That venue is gorgeous!

I know for sure I plan on using my own cake stand that I already own (my sister is making my cake, so I can make sure it will fit, haha). Other than that I don’t think we have plans on using anything we already own. But that may change as we start doing more planning!

i will probably wear shoes that i already own and uses glassware and centerpieces from my company… I am toying around with the idea of using my mom’s cake topper as some sort of decor.

I LOVE your venue. I have a very similar wedding style. I also will be incorporating birdcages, candles and flowers, but also putting birds in the mix….so I LOOOVVVEE your style as well (hehe). I’ll be looking forward to seeing how you pull everything together.

As far as using things I already have, I will be using some brooches I already own for bouquet handles (charms) just to add a little sparkle and vintage feel.

yes, I’m using old Easter baskets for bathroom baskets and my MIL’s birdcage for our cards…I was going to reuse a pillow for the ring pillow but caved to peer pressure  😉

Also, I used some things from friends and only wore jewelry I already owned…
