- Wedding: October 2012
I’ve been a long-time reader of this board/website, but I just joined this morning, so this is my first post! I’m not sure if I’ve posted this on the correct board, but if there’s somewhere else it should go, please let me know 🙂
My fiance and I are getting married on October 12, 2012, and we’re having a vintage/shabby chic themed wedding…our colors are ivory, black, and shades of pink.
Anyway, I’ve come to this site for help in finding vintage/distressed lanterns to line the aisle of our ceremony space. So far, the only styles that I LOVE are from Pottery Barn…and unfortunately $49+ apiece for 8-10 lanterns is not really in my budget right now! I’m hoping maybe all of you might have some suggestions on where else I should look? I’ve looked everywhere I can think of: Michael’s, Kohl’s, Target, Ikea (too modern), and countless other places both online and in person. Any help/guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
I know that these styles are really pretty different from each other. But I love the filigree on the first one (we’re using anyique mirrored trays/plateau mirrors with filigree on them under the centerpieces at our reception); and I love the ivory color, simplicity, and distressing on the second one…
