Vintage Ladders for Wedding Decor

I found my ladder secondhand on Facebook marketplace. You can usually find them on Etsy as well, but act fast if you find one you like, they go quick! I used my ladder to hold party favors with old drawers I had. I have also seen people use ladders to hold greenery or lights, or even use them to create shelving for the dessert buffet. Vintage doors are also a great wedding must have, and would look amazing in your intimate backyard setting. They make a great backdrop for your ceremony, an awesome Photo Booth, or even just a way to hold photos of you and your partner. You could even throw in some vintage farmhouse windows to take your decor to the next level!
