Vintage Wedding Reveal

One of the items included in Linda's swap was a old wedding photo.  This is one I had in my stash of old photos.  I love the proud smile of the groom and the neat wedding attire of the bride.  It makes me wonder what their families and traditions were like.

Something Old?  I picked a sweet cherry red straw bonnet for Ms. Kelly!  Maybe this was someone's hat they wore on their honeymoon.  I love Kelly's profile pic with her sassy vintage bonnet!

Tucked inside the hat is the key to each other's heart and a vintage hanky.

I love handmade things.  The hours of work reflected in the details.

I came across an old postcard I had to toss in.  Waiting patiently for such a special day to come.  I wonder if this lady ever said yes to this gentleman?

The Something New is a lucious, creamy bar of Tokyomilk soap, complete with sparkly packaging.  I thought a vintage hanky holder would be the perfect envelope for this treat.  Pinned to the top is a sweet brooch.

The Something Borrowed is my wedding birdie's nest.  What kind of nest did you say? . . . why a pair of vintage gloves wrapped in some lacy textiles, tied with a velvet ribbon and adorned with a sparkly bloom.

Wedding wishes from Ms. Birdie {she is coming for a visit too}

Complete with her own floral veil

Something Blue?  How about some dreamy blue crochet trim with sweet millinery?  Kelly, I see that you love to sew too . . . I thought this would be a sweet addition to your sewing stash!

Every wedding cake needs a little extra frosting so included a few extra goodies like buttons, seam binding, and millinery.

Here is the complete package.  Kelly, I hope you love it!  I had such fun putting something some vintage wedding magic.  HUGS  . . . Heidi

xo's Sugahs, Heidi
