DIY- Vintage Windowpane Seating Chart


A windowpane seating chart gives a unique twist to your average escort board at your wedding reception, and is quick and simple to make!

You will need: An old window pane found at a junk yard, or a new one found at Home Depot/Lowes (which you can then paint and sand to give it a roughed up, vintage look.) and a paint marker.

Write the table numbers followed by the guests to be seated at that table on each windowpane. To do this you can use your best handwriting, or print out what you want each window pane to say in the font you want and tape it to the back of the glass. You can then trace over the words with your paint marker. Thats it! You have your fabulous wedding reception seating chart.

Brides- you could use this windowpane idea for your signature drink sign also!

Vintage Courthouse Wedding

At long last, here is the lovely vintage courthouse wedding I’ve been promising, photography courtesy of the talented San Diego-based Aaron Willcox Photography. What I love so much about this wedding is the simplicity that doesn’t sacrifice style.  Her meticulously planned vintage gray suit, the delicate hat with netting and her stunning purple calla bouquet. The groom is quite dapper as well!

The other thing I love about this wedding is the intimate size and courthouse setting. A courthouse wedding is no less a wedding than a full-blown elaborate affair at a country club, and what shines through these photos the most is the couple’s raw emotions. Her anticipation while getting ready, his adoring gaze, and their sheer happiness in the courtroom.  I think every bride and groom should be lucky to feel the same on their wedding day.   So without further ado….

Vintage Bride Style

Crafting impeccable events is an art that takes more than just the planner, it takes a whole team. Precisely why I’m always on the lookout for amazing, talented vendors to put on my wish list of who I’d like to work with. After blog surfing for lovely wedding inspirations I happened to land on Stephanie Williams’ blog – and swooned. All of her work is stunning, but in particular I fell in love with a shoot  involving vintage bridal looks – 1940s makeup, fabulous fascinators and tea-length dresses included.

I know many brides are looking for beautiful vintage inspiration pictures these days, so I wanted to share a few from the shoot. I can’t get enough of the gorgeous photography or the vintage styles, and I hope you enjoy this just as much as I do. Head on over to Stephanie’s blog to see more from this lovely shoot, and seriously consider her for your wedding photographer if you are a Southern California bride.

P.S. The fascinators are by Batcakes Couture, and can be found on Etsy.
