Using objects found at flea markets and thrift stores in weddings is becoming more and more popular, and one thing you can almost always find – tarnished silver, gold or brass serving pieces – which would be perfect inspiration for a vintage silver wedding day. And when you mix these vintage pieces with glass vases, brass pieces and mercury glass, you have a wedding look that is vintage, romantic and lovely.
When you’re looking for silver, gold or brass pieces, the goal is to mix and match to create a cohesive but unique look. You can use vases, pitchers, creamers and sugars and trays mixed together to create centerpiece groupings. If you have a lot of inexpensive glass vases, use some of them to DIY mercury glass which mixes in well with the tarnished silver pieces.
Looking to include photos of loved ones at your wedding? Look for silver or metal picture frames to fill with photos, and display them on a tarnished silver tray surrounded by candles for a sweet and romantic display.
And incorporate the mixed metal look throughout the your wedding – bridesmaids in sparkling silver gowns, a gold or brass hairpiece, or something golden like this ‘Love’ bottle opener as a takeaway for your guests.
And once your wedding is over, you’ll have lovely pieces to you can use to decorate your home and remember your perfect silver and gold wedding day.
