The use of vintage doors is one of our favourite wedding details. The older and more battered they are the better. They also add instant rustic or vintage charm to your wedding decor! Vintage doors are great for so many different uses too: backdrops, menu displays or even use them as actual doors! They are a huge economical decor idea and because of it’s size, a great prop to fill up an open space. It’s such a simple way to add charm and a perfect DIY project.
Below is a couple of ways to use vintage doors in your wedding decor.
There will be many photos taken of the altar on the day of your wedding so make it as pretty as you can. Get two or more old doors, place into position and then decorate with ribbon, flowers, fabric or even driftwood for a beach wedding.
This is where you can go as creative as you like. We love using lots of garlands of greenery to make a big impact. Add in vintage crates, ribbon, a few flowers and lots of candles and you’ll have a great looking backdrop for photos.
One of the first things your guests will see when they move from cocktail hour to the reception,
will be the seating chart. There is no reason why you can’t have a beautiful display for your seating plan.
So why not make a statement and welcome your guests with a rustic vintage door to show them where they will be seated.
Family photos are not only meaningful, they make for great wedding decor too. A display of photos on a vintage door is a great tribute to family members who are no longer there. Alternatively, a collage of the bride and groom in different stages of growing up is a great conversation starter. This can add to the memories you have of your big day.
A stand alone door perfectly placed with a floral arrangement makes a huge statement. You can also use garlands of greenery to add colour to a rustic door making a gorgeous eye catching display.
If you can find an old door, why not have your menu done on it. There are many ways in which to do this. Paint the door black and have your menu printed on white vinyl and attach to the door. Alternatively, you can write the menu in chalk on the door. You can also have the menu printed on fabric or paper and drape over the door.
