Classic Finds: Perfect Timing

Sarah from Classic Bride is back with us every Friday to share a few of her favorite finds, inspiration and ideas for chic, classic weddings. Here’s this week’s find:

vintage alarm clocks

I develop crushes on different collections of vintage ephemera like a 12-year-old girl does with boy bands. And right now I am crushing hard on vintage clocks – specifically alarm or travel clocks … their retro curves and sensible designs are irresistible to me. I love grouping three of varying sizes together and placing them in unexpected spots – the guest bathroom, the kitchen, a random bookshelf, you get the idea …

And I think they would be a delicious accent for a wedding. While they certainly offer up a more-than-suitable flair for an Alice in Wonderland-inspired soiree, I think they’d make for a fantastic touch at a wedding with any theme {or no theme at all} … Time ties us all together and you could easily create a mini-theme by setting the clocks to a certain meaningful time – maybe the moment your groom proposed to you or the moment you first kissed … any time that holds a special meaning would be just perfect. I think the miniature clocks would look divine clustered together or scattered throughout floral centerpieces. And if you’re in love with that blue charmer, he can be all yours as he’s for sale in my shop – just click here for details.
