Vintage key theme
I love old keys, like skeleton keys and stuff. I have a bunch of mini ones that I want to incorporate somehow. I am thinking of punching holes in either invites or place cards and tying a key to each one with ribbon in the wedding colors. Any other ideas?

Hmm..you could hang them from trees, if you put them on the invites it might not go throught the machine and be overweight limit and cost extra $$ to send them. WHat else can you do..hmm..Let me think and I'll get back to you! (PS I also have an onession with vintage/skeleton keys, But I never though of incorporateing them into the wedding)

I love that! So unique!! You could do it with your programs instead--- you usually need less programs because it's usually one per family. Or maybe you could somehow incorporate them into you table numbers.

I thought if hanging them from flowers...I dunno. I want them to be a big part of the theme.

For invitations, Id recommend getting faux keys or key print paper for scrapbooking.

You can have one in your bouquet for your something old. you can add them to the menu cards if you do one or two a table. those are two ideas I can think of. I seen cute key jewlery thats styled like the older keys. Key to my heart is the theme that runs through my mind when I saw this post.

CARA! You'll appreciate this then!

There’s an Italian tradition where lovers write their initials on locks, lock them to bridges or fences in their city, and toss the keys into the river. I'm from a longgggg line of Italians who obviously now live in the US where it isn't exactly customary to put locks on bridges or fences..... I plan to incorporate it somehow into my wedding though- one way or another. Perhaps heart-shaped locks, and we each wear the other's key around our necks? I have no idea, yet.

Just an idea!

Cute favor below! It would also be cool to do a Heart-Shaped cake with "Key to your HEART". :)
