2. Seal The Deal With An Heirloom

From Stephanie Vegliante Photography: By incorporating vintage jewelry with rustic touches there is a mix of color, styles, and details for the classic bride looking for an edge.

Rings are all about expressing who you are these days. Why not show off your sparkling yet classic style with a long treasured family heirloom! No such hand-me-downs in your family? No problem, we recommend checking out antique and thrift shops. You'd be surprised what you might find just waiting for you. Speaking of which, this gorgeous ring from Inspiration Studio RI has us itching to check out our local pawn shops.

4. A pared Down Table Setting

This table setting is whimsical yet oddly unadorned. With a simple pear and place card on elegant glass plates and the scrunched table runner beneath mismatched candle sticks and white centerpiece; you can give your tables a calm yet wistful vibe!

5. Add An Antique or Two

Using what you have or at least borrowing from others always seems to give your wedding day a home spun and family heirloom chic vibe. We are in love with how antique dressers look as any kind of table or station at a wedding, and the thee old doors make a fantastic backdrop for your ceremony!

6. Rethink Your Entertainment

Having a live band at your wedding day can give you wedding reception a elevated and unique feel, but if that isn't in the budget then let your guests choose the tunes with a classic juke box!
