8 Tips on blending classic pieces from different styles into your event
We love working with our couples to create something incredibly special by blending and mixing different pieces from our authentic portfolio.
Here we share our tips and ideas on how to combine pieces from different elements (specifically vintage and contemporary) across aspects of your wedding day.
- RECEPTION DINING
Be it a romantic, intimate elopement or a larger affair, by combining differing chair and table styles you create something unique and from our experience, also expand the options on how to style your overall tablescape.
A tablescape is like a blank canvas; one to which you can add as much or as little as you want to suit your style. It’s an opportunity to play with candles, fabrics, personalized keepsakes for your guests, florals. What we love most about tablescapes is that the options for décor are endless!
- BRIDAL HAIR
Add a vintage sparkle to tie in some old-world glamour to your day. Try to find an artisan local to you who lovingly creates small, delicate pieces of magic that you can incorporate.

- SIGNING TABLE
If you are going to be asked to sign any documentation at your ceremony which will be photographed extensively, why not look to include something quirky and unique by way of a signing table. Just imagine sitting at something as elegant as an antique writing desk; a piece that could also be utilized later for guest book signing. Ask your planner/vendors for pieces that are authentic and unique.
- BRIDAL PORTRAITS
There will be plenty of opportunities for family, friends and group photos, and a chance for couple portraits at other locations. A great idea is to also have a little set up tucked away at the venue where you can take the opportunity for a couple of bridal portraits. Alternatively, this could be utilized during bridal preparation with your bridal party. What a fun way to start the day!
- CAKE DISPLAY
The wedding cake deserves to have the spotlight for a while before being cut; after all it is a work of art and one that will be savored by everyone. A little corner devoted for this little star with a combination of pieces provides great photo opportunities.
- LOUNGE AREA
What better way than to let your guests take a load off/chill out/talk about the day than with a lounge area. These cozy corners are an ideal way to combine pieces from different eras to create something magical.
- CAKE CUTTING
Adding a backdrop and a beautiful piece of furniture for your official cake cutting is again an opportunity to mix contemporary lighting with classic, antique pieces for romantic glamour.
