How To: Create an Antique Door Wedding Seating Chart, Guest Tutorial by Nostalgia Resources

I’m excited to be sharing a new feature on the blog with you today! Veronica Torres-Miller of Nostalgia Resources will be guest posting each month with a new tutorial on how to incorporate vintage props and rentals into your wedding.

Nostalgia Resources has a huge variety of decor available for rental for your wedding, engagement shoot or bridal shower, including large items like furniture, trunks or antique windows and smaller items like birdcages, antique cameras, vases and dish ware. (Check out their entire inventory here!) The pieces are available to rent by the piece, so you can pick the perfect items individually to add character and style to your event.

Today’s tutorial is a great way to spice up an antique door and turn it into an escort card chart. This is a great project to for a local or destination wedding that needs a dash of vintage charm as the smaller parts can be assembled at home ahead of time and then just placed on the door when you arrive.
