If you are planning a vintage wedding and want to add an authentic touch, just add vintage wedding silverware to the mix! Today we’re showing you three ways to add vintage flair with silverware from Wooden Hive.
1. Place Settings
Vintage wedding silverware added to your place settings will exude a more genuine vintage feel. Guests can take their place setting home as their wedding favor, or you can keep your favorites for use in your home (and donate the rest).
2. Table Numbers
Or, use these custom vintage spoons as table number markers. Just place one in a glass vase or jar at each table.
3. Cake Forks
Last but not least, don’t forget custom cake forks for the cutting of the cake. After the big day, you can reuse these forks again as a keepsake. Kerrie’s collection of handstamped vintage wedding silverware are unlike any we’ve seen.
Or ‘Eat Cake’ forks paired with a custom vintage server.
There are even handstamped Mr and Mrs coffee spoons, perfect for your coffee themed wedding (or just because).
If you’re planning a vintage themed wedding, you won’t want to miss out on this unique detail! Visit Wooden Hive to find out more and shop for your vintage wedding silverware.

I swear, some of the most memorable handmade finds are a result of popping in to my favorite Etsy shops and seeing what’s new. One of my recent fave finds was discovered when I popped in to Juneberry Stitches where I was met with the loveliest plaid doily clutch purse I had ever seen. Now to be fair it is probably the first plaid clutch purse with a doily that I have ever seen, but that’s what made it unique. And it was truly a sight for sore, tired, I-was-up-until-3am-and-again-at-7am kind of eyes. The kind that requires more than my usual over-consumption of coffee.
Finally, something different and gorgeous for fall weddings! And, might I add, the perfect bridesmaid gift idea. I mean, plaid and fall just go together, much like a plaid button down shirt that I stole from my husband just happens to go great with my favorite leggings and an extra tall cup of pumpkin spice coffee. You know, right now.
You know what’s funny? Pumpkins aren’t even spicy. But that’s another conversation for another time.
This red tartan plaid doily clutch purse is my FAVORITE. I love red tartan plaid, the ultimate late fall and all-winter pattern. I have a pair of these that I keep in my closet just for when that red tartan mood strikes, pretty much while shopping for Christmas gifts in early December.
The navy plaid, green plaid, and alternate red plaid doily clutch purse options are lovely, too. Which one suits you (or your bridesmaid’s) style best?
Isn’t this style so gorgeous? I really like the combination of plaid paired with tweed. These clutches are just one way doilies are totally working their way back into weddings, vintage or not. And I’m loving it.

Their Chicago wedding was this past August and it’s filled with amazing DIY details. The wedding’s personalized details included a chic wooden sign, romantic lighting, and handmade banner cake topper. Kristi looked stunning in her dress! Her gold colored jewelry and flower hairpiece are so alluring. Their wedding at the Chicago Urban Art Society was photographed by Bri, from Bri McDaniel Photography. See the lovely photos…
Chicago Urban Art Society Wedding
Bri tells us, “They set up a really fun photo booth with a neat back drop. It stands out to me because I am used to seeing photo booths with plain backdrops. I also loved the ceremony backdrop. It was shredded fabric, and very unique. They painted and sprayed coke and wine bottles for their table decor. They also had pictures of themselves strung up on a wall. It was so cute and really gave me insight into their cute love story.”

We spotted this heartfelt and awe-inspiring story and wanted to share it with you. Break out the tissues — this is one sad and heartwarming story that will remind you what’s truly important in life. Photos by Loft Three Photography.
Father Recreates Wedding Photos with Daughter to Say Goodbye
In Moving Without Mom, Ben Nunery and his daughter, Olivia, recreated wedding photos to say goodbye and honor late wife and mother, Ali. Ben and Ali got married in 2009 after recently closing on their house. Since they hadn’t moved in yet, they utilized the empty house as an opportunity to have their wedding photographs taken inside. Four and a half years later, Ali tragically passed away from cancer. When Ben and his daughter, Olivia, were preparing to move into a new house, they wanted to find a way to honor Ali and say goodbye to the memories the three shared together. So, Ben decided to recreate their wedding photos as father and daughter. These photos are so real. So raw. So emotional. Take a look at the beautiful memories they created thanks to Melanie Tracy Pace, Ali’s sister and talented photographer.
What a remarkably moving and inspiring story. We wish Ben and Olivia all the best and we are sorry to hear of Ali’s tragic passing. This is a beautiful way to remember and honor her life, and will be a lasting memory for Olivia as she grows up.
Each day is so precious.
