Steal This Look: Pearls as Chair Decor

Are you planning a vintage wedding, or better yet, hoping to cross vintage wedding chair decorations from your to-do list? Maybe that’s a bit specific, but when you find a look you would steal yourself you just can’t help but share it.

For instance, when I spotted these pearls, I knew it would make an elegant chair decoration for a vintage wedding. Now, I’m not crazy enough to suggest or even dream of these pearls as chair decorations for every single chair. That just sounds like a headache.

Instead, I think here less is definitely more! Use the pearls as chair decor solely for the bride and groom’s chairs, or even just for the bride. An elegant, satin-ribbon-ensconced chair sounds like the perfect bridal chair adornment. It would look lovely for the bridal shower, too. I just love this.
