Have you ever stumbled upon something so lovely AND functional that it becomes an a-ha moment? That’s pretty much what happened when I stumped upon this mirror table number idea, where photographer Mary Fields captured a most elegant photo shoot designed by I Heart Rehabs. Here at Emmaline Bride, we love handmade + re-purposed finds, so we couldn’t have been more excited to find a cool vintage find turned functional in this centerpiece idea. See? Table numbers don’t have to be boring.

Here, take a look:

Isn’t it lovely? It’s perfect for the vintage themed wedding! Look for vintage swing mirrors on Ebay (the word ‘ornate’ is a plus) or, for a lower price point, look for a shabby chic option like this. My word, that’s gorgeous. Then, use some liquid chalk right on the mirror to write the table number.

Also, double points because…

1. It won’t blow away.

Planning an outdoor wedding? A tabletop mirror will stay put. No worrying about it blowing away or keeping it in place.

2. It adds a thematic touch.

You can add any kind of mirror you choose to fit your theme: vintage, beachy-cottage, shabby chic, even modern! Here’s one I love (and it’s way smaller in person, even though this looks like a full-length mirror from the photo). And you know how much I love themes.

3. It’s reusable!

Give these away after the wedding because, really, who doesn’t love an old timey mirror? And who couldn’t use one for their vanity? (Raises hand.)

We received a new Ask Emmaline question and it’s a good one! This comes from Sydney, who asks,

“My fiancé and I are looking for easy wedding decor we can add to our reception. We love the idea of something custom, maybe tying in our favorite authors or books (we’re planning a book-inspired wedding). Any ideas?”

One of the easiest, most personal way to tie in quotes, favorite movies, or books–as you mentioned–is with a wedding poster. A wedding posteris an easy decorating piece is because it can sit on an easel at the entrance of your reception, or to add a pop of decor to an otherwise lonely looking cake table, guest book table, or favor table. Plus, it can be customized with your names, a line from your favorite song (like your first dance), wedding date, colors, etc.

Plus, you can’t argue with wedding decor that doubles in your home afterward, right?
