What To Do With Your Wedding Decor After The Big Day


What will you do with your wedding decor when you're done with it?

Should you sell your items on Etsy?

Start a vintage rental business of your own?


These are the two most profitable answers to this question. Our upcoming courses will teach you how to start an Etsy shop and how to start a wedding rental business.

Our Etsy course will teach you how to open up a successful Etsy shop so you can sell your decorative items at competitive prices.

Our wedding rental business course will cover how to start renting your items to other brides, how much you can rent your wedding items for, and how to build your business. 

So do you want to sell it or rent it? We will soon have a course on each and you can grab the bundle.

Michigan Barn Wedding at MillCreek Barns

We are so excited to share beautiful photos of a wedding that we were a part of in June. This gorgeous wedding at MillCreek Barn in Watervliet, Michigan was overflowing with pretty details including our floral vintage china plates, glass goblets and antique flatware. Along with our vintage place settings, Fancy Fray provided some to-die-for vintage sofas for ceremony seating and vintage furniture for the dessert buffet. Check out these amazing photos from Jacy and Barry's big day:

Can we just take a minute to swoon over Jacy's gorgeous dress and these Space 46 tulle skirts?

A Blessed Year

Christmas time is among us and I as I look back at the year 2013 I feel blessed. This was a year of new beginnings. In February, Jacob and I welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world. In May, we bought our first home. In the fall, I worked to rename and brand my business with intentions of leaping forward with my passion.

A business that began as more of an experiment is catching the interest of more brides and leaving me to feel thankful with each new client and opportunity. While I have always had aspirations to become a business owner, I never expected that I could succeed combining that goal with my admiration of vintage things. And yet, here I am; starting to feel more confident that this venture can succeed. This “great idea” became more than that after marrying my best friend. I celebrated the most important day of my life. I celebrated a new beginning with a man who accepts me and loves me to no end. I celebrated with family and friends, vowing to love this man for my entire life. I celebrated and I realized that THIS day, my wedding day, was magical. Every bride deserves a magical celebration on the day that she walks down the aisle and vows to love another for the rest of her life. She deserves every detail to be stunning. And that's where I step in- to create gorgeous details.

Rusted Rose Vintage Rentals -this business I founded lights my heart on fire. I love bringing mismatched treasures together and creating cohesive tablescapes for a delectable wedding dinner to be enjoyed. The events of 2013 came to a close in early November and the 2014 weddings ahead already have me feeling anxious. I anticipate the new relationships and experiences that will form over the year ahead.
