Unlock your imagination with a vintage key themed wedding! We all want to marry the one who holds the key to our heart, so go ahead, be a hopeless romantic, and include them into your wedding decor and theme!
They are such a classic and elegant, vintage element and are so easily incorporated into as an overall theme, or simply as an accent to your big day.
Search your local flea and antique markets and shops for real vintage keys. The real deal aren’t cheap (they run anywhere from $2-$20 a piece) and might best be used as decor items. You can easily find reasonably priced replicas on eBay and Etsy for a much cheaper price. If they aren’t the antique colour you were hoping for, buy some antique bronze, silver or gold spray paint and voila, real looking vintage skeleton keys that are budget friendly! This way you can tie them onto favours, place cards, escort cards and more, without it costing you a fortune to make the details count!
We love Bhldn’s vintage key wooden box… this could be used for your guests to place their cards in, as a box for your honeymoon fund, or even as a place for your loved ones to fill out a small note with a “key to a successful marriage”.
If you want to start off with the theme from the very beginning, use vintage keys in your invitation artwork, just like these. Some other sweet ideas are to tie a beautiful vintage key to your bouquet, attached to your escort card display, or incorporate vintage keys into your groom and groomsmen’s boutonnieres. You could even make edible fondant ones to put on top of your cupcakes!
