It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about collecting silver for our wedding! We’re pretty much done, thanks to some kind family members and friends who heard about my mission — whoo! — but are still searching for a few key pieces. I have more vegetable dishes and trays than I can shake a stick at, but would love one or two larger champagne buckets or trophy cups.
In the meantime, though, I thought I would share some of the images that are inspiring me on my silver pilgrimage!
I haven’t decided yet what the tarnish level of the pieces will be, but I’m thinking not see-your-reflection polished, and not dull as a doornail, either. Somewhere in between. I want the overall aesthetic to be clean, not vintage, so I think erring on the side of more polished is probably a smart decision. Time to break out the rags!
