I like the 2nd pic of the table numbers. I think they go better with the books. Cute centerpieces. Are you gonig to use all those glasses/vases on each table?? I would consider cutting it back a little….or were you just showing us the type of glasses?

LOVE this. How did you collect/where did you find the vintage books?  

 

We’re doing a vintage-theme too. I was thinking of doing something similar with mason jars and cigar boxes (there’s a liquor store near FILs’ that will give them away periodically).

I love your centerpieces/table numbers!  I think they look perfect, I would just use less bottles on the right side.  I think 3 on that side and 1 on the left side would be just enough!

I suggest changing the voties. That trim looks cheap-ish.

@milesbella: regarding book shipping: I too have a ton of vintage books to resell. Try shipping usps via “media mail” – this is a slowboat shipping method but is much more affordable.

I love vintage weddings and I love that you are using your dad’s books. As a matter of fact, I love everything about your wedding and can’t wait to see the results! 🙂 From my own reception experience I suggest that you try to get different “height” levels on all of the tables.

When my family was doing set up, some members kept doing the same equation and I tried to get different looks so that each setting wasn’t so “matchy matchy”. If you show them a picture, they will try to make each setting match – avoid this like the plague lol! 🙂

I tied them with burlap string and massed them in groups. Then I put two vertical thinner books leaning into the big mass. This allowed me to place a small jar of flowers on top and some votives down below. (if you want me to send you photos, send me a p.m).

Remember to not have all books face the same direction as people will be sitting on both sides of tables – everyone loved reading the spines of our collection and a few guests asked if they could have some of the vintage classics! 🙂

Jars/vases don’t need a ton of water, just enough at base to keep flower alive – that way if they tip over due to rawdy guests, you won’t have a mess on the table. I’d recommend florist to do some vases/jars with just foliage as a contrast to the wildflowers. We found guests wondering from table to table to look at the arrangements because all of them were different.

My only criticism on your display is the lace – i’d skip it altogether as it looks new.

CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOUR PHOTOS!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so excited for you and love your posts!!!
