We’ve had quite a lot of interest recently in vintage inspired wedding styling ideas and also personalised wedding gifts that are of special significance to the bride and groom.
Personalised Thank You gifts for the wedding party including mums and dads, bridesmaids and groomsmen are also popular and go down so well due to their unique quality and thoughtfulness, but where do you start looking for that special something? No problem, let us introduce you to Grace & Favour Home and their fun and funky selection of wedding styling and gift ideas.
Vintage Inspired Bunting
So many of you are dressing your own venues now and bunting is such a popular way to add interest to a plain wall, or festooned across a ceiling.
If you’re planning a vintage theme to your big day, then take a look at these four bunting styles from Grace & Favour Home – with sheet music, vintage stamps, maps and postcard themed bunting to choose from, we’re sure at least one will fit the bill. We also like the idea of combining two or more, say maps and postcards for a retro travel theme.
How fab is this collection of vintage postcard bunting? Featuring images on a plain cotton backing, this decorative vintage bunting features postcards that have an elegant timeless feel.
You can almost image someone from a bygone age sitting writing them, in a shady spot somewhere warm and sunny, perhaps on their Grand Tour of Mediterranean cities. Wow, we have such active imaginations here at Girl Gets Wed, but we love these and they would offset your travel theme perfectly.
Vintage Map Bunting
Staying with the travel theme, we’re fascinated by this vintage map bunting, a perfect accompaniment to the postcard bunting, it draws us in as there’s a feeling on wanting to take a closer look at what’s on each piece of bunting. It’s would add such a colourful and unique talking point to your big day.
Retro Stamp Bunting
Quirky postage stamp bunting, double sided fabric flags with pinked edges on a matching cream tape. This wonderfully unique vintage stamp bunting is handmade by us in our Devon studio using only the highest quality materials to create a fantastic product for your home. Shades of mustard, deep orange, red, purple and black are combined to create a fantastic talking point for any celebration,
Vintage Sheet Music Bunting
Lovely set of vintage music mini bunting created from vintage sheet music. Our vintage sheet music bunting is made up of double sided flags machine stitched together for strength and strung together on a length of twine. Each set is created from vintage sheet music and so music used will differ from that shown. There may well be notes and annotations on the music – we think this adds to it’s vintage charm! Great for parties, weddings and celebrations or leave up all year round! Lovely to hang above the piano!
Personalised Engraved Wooden Cutlery
If your big day has an outdoors or marquee element to the celebrations, then why not add the perfect finishing touch -bespoke personalised wooden cutlery engraved with your choice of text.
Great for rustic country weddings with a festival feel – each set of cutlery is compostable so good for the environment too. Using a gorgeous brush script font, your wording of choice can be laser engraved your wording choice onto each piece. We think this is such a fun idea.
Personalised Map Hearts & Houses
They can have messages engraved on the back, making them ideal as wedding and engagement gifts.
Any location can be included on these funky little gifts, so we’re thinking that they would make ideal wedding/ first home momentos.
Just specify your location of choice add a personal message to be engraved on the back when you order and let Grace & Favour Home craft something very lovely and totally bespoke.
Personalised Map Lampshade
Who doesn’t love the idea of combining a gift that’s both personal and practical, something that can be used every day, and also puts a smile on you face when you use it time after time.
These personalised lampshades tick all the above boxes. Again, they are totally personalised to a specific location, they have a totally on trend look and feel about them and they can be made to fit on a standard lamp base or as a hanging pendant shade.
Our chums over at Grace & Favour tell us that these are super popular as wedding gifts as they are so personal. All that we can add is that never has a map looked so funky.
We really hope that you’ve enjoyed looking through just a small selection of Grace & Favour Homewares and do keep an eye on the blog as we’ll be popping back to them in a couple of weeks when we’ll feature our favourite wedding gift list ideas from their full homeware range.
