Planning a wedding? With the ever-increasing social media accounts and platforms dedicated to wedding inspiration, there has never been more ideas when planning your dream day. So much in fact, that it can easily get overwhelming.

We’re here to bring it all in one place so you can find the perfect inspiration for your big day. It’s our hope that you can bring some of these trends and ideas to your wedding to make it extra special, and especially you. We want your dream wedding to come to life!

At Old Time Pottery, we provide a one-stop shopping experience, at an absolutely unbeatable price. Here are some of our favorite 2019 wedding items and ideas that you need to know!


Turn your venue into your personalized wedding by adding canvases and signs that are special to you and your partner! Signs are a wonderful way to set the tone of your intimate wedding. From calligraphy “bride and groom” signs, beautiful wood pieces and chalkboards to welcome your guests, OTP has it.

I purchased all of my signs and the easels for under $80. I can wait to prop up the signs on the dessert table, head table and bar!

Use easels of varying height to show off your beautiful bridals and engagement photos! Another unique idea would be to grab a beautiful mirror piece and write menu items, seating charts and more! Old Time Pottery has plenty of mirror options, too.

Serving Dishes

Your table set up is the best place to get creative with your wedding theme and personal styles. Utilize chargers and different textures to create the exact look you are going for! This is where your guests will kick off the reception, so let’s impress them!

Utilize OTP’s many creative dishes for your guests when it comes to flatware in the buffet line, and cake presentation. Old Time Pottery sells plates, silverware, chargers and more in large quantities, giving your wedding a cohesive design.


OTP makes it easy to cut the expensive costs on real florals for your centerpieces. Using the premade circle arrangements are beautiful, affordable and look realistic.

Additionally, choosing one of the many clear vase options at Old Time Pottery let you get creative with what to put inside! Candles, wine corks, and florals are a great staple this year. I added a chalk table marker for my guests to easily find where they will be sitting.

Guestbook DIY

Get creative with your guestbook! The typical signed book often gets put away and opened on rare occasions.

With this unique wine bottle holder from Old Time Pottery, I labeled wine bottles as a great add-on to our guestbook. Couples who have been married for the indicated number of years write a bit of advice, words of wisdom, and well wishes on a piece of paper and slip it in the bottle.

On that anniversary for you and your partner, break it open and read the words from your loved ones. Some who may have passed on, making it just that much more meaningful. 

This is a great twist to the traditional guest book, that your friends and family will love and talk about for years to come!

Garland and Florals

Florals aren’t just for the bouquets! 2019 weddings are all about greenery all over the ceremony and reception, and we are loving it.

There is a growing trend that helps cut costs on your expensive florist tab. Incorporate artificial florals with your real flowers and greenery! Your guests won’t even notice the difference. This can be especially helpful with garland and centerpieces at the reception. 

Old Time Pottery has beautiful premade bouquet arrangements that are the perfect size for the bridal party. You can purchase a bouquet and lace and ribbon to personalize it for less than $10 each, and petals for the flower girl for $9! 

Pantone’s 2019 color of the year is spot on, coral is back! This trend will be a popular accent color with weddings this year!

Candles and Lights

Place. Candles. Everywhere! Nothing sets the warm, intimate tones of a wedding quite like tea lights and candle sticks. From small to large, I plan on lining candles down the aisle and on every table at the reception.

Lanterns are a great way to display small candles. These really rose in popularity last year, and they’ll be here for awhile!

Shower and Party Essentials  

For all the fun showers and bachelorette parties that come along with your wedding, OTP has those essentials, too. Shower the bride or groom in your life with love and celebrations!

In addition to all of these items, Old Time Pottery has even more to help you make your wedding vision come to life. From string lights, linens, archways to rugs and more, it’s truly a one-stop-shop experience.
