Kent, UK - Vintage and upcycled wedding decoration creates a unique look for any wedding. Old salvaged doors, windows, vintage furniture or accessories will add instant character. Vintage pieces can create a natural relaxed feel, romance, glamour, intimacy or elegance depending on your style.

Reclaimed fireplace mantels and doors make attractive altars decorated with flowers or fairy lights. Secondhand vintage furniture can be painted to suit the wedding colour theme then used as a display table or bar. The Knot, a specialist wedding website recommends using vintage pieces outside to make an unexpected whimsical touch.

Vintage suitcases, photo or picture frames make great display boards for photos, seating plans or place names. Reuse jam jars or vintage tea cups for candles or flowers. Vintage linen table cloths can be cut up to make napkins. Old books or vintage jewellery can decorate the table.

For more ideas on how you can use upcycling to transform your wedding venue into a vintage fantasy see the links below. See more reclaimed and salvaged wedding ideas on Pinterest at salvowebpins.

Source vintage pieces at salvage and antique showrooms, fairs, markets, charity shops or online at SalvoWEB. Vintage, upcylced furniture and old salvaged doors will also be for sale at the architectural and antiques fair of the year, SALVO 2017.
