Bride Blogger Danielle - Treasure Hunting, part 1

Bride Blogger Danielle - Treasure Hunting

One of my favorite childhood memories is “treasure hunting” with my parents. They loved going shopping for antiques, and we always seemed to have a specific mission each time we set out. I can remember skipping down dusty, trinket-filled antique store aisles attempting to help my mom find pink depression glass to ad to her collection.

This notion of treasure hunting or thrifting is something that I wanted to incorporate into my wedding-planning process; therefore, one wedding-day detail that I have been searching for is floral, gold-plated china. While renting your wedding decorations can save you a substantial amount of time and effort, I encourage you to do a little bit of treasure hunting to supplement your rentals and add a personalized touch to your wedding-day details. Not only will this exercise give you a sense of direction and purpose throughout your wedding-planning process, but it will also give you a rich sense of fulfillment once you finally track down that item. Trust me, nothing beats the thrill of a good find!

You’d also be surprised how easy it is to form an emotional attachment to the items you uncover. Not only do they look pretty, but they also hold a story. For me, I love the idea of having family dinners using the china I found for our wedding reception. There a very few materialistic items present in our daily loves that hold such intimate details about our past.
