I always love items that do two jobs! And when it comes to the expense of a wedding, having a dual purpose is even more of a wise decision. All of the items below are useful as wedding decor items, yet they also would totally find a place in the new home of the couple. Take a peek at what Minted has to offer!

Wedding Decor Items

For Your Display Table

If you’re looking for something eye-catching for your cards, these Keepsake Card Boxes are oh so appropriate! Guests can place their well wishes for the new couple into the box, yet it is so useful beyond the wedding day. Whether it takes up residence on your coffee table for keepsakes (think shells from your honeymoon or currency from other countries) or on a dresser for jewelry, it’s wonderful that it is see through.

These boxes are also reminiscent of yesteryear – I have a few of these in my house that were my grandmother’s. These can become heirlooms as well! Keepsake Card Boxes, Large $48, Small $24

Building off of the brass theme, photos are often on display at a wedding. Whether it is of the couple during their engagement or of lost loved ones, why not include keepsake frames for your home? These frames paired with the lovely boxes above would make a subtly beautiful statement on a wedding display table. So lovely! And, you will definitely want to display your wedding photos in your home, and these will definitely do the trick! Brass Picture Frames, $28 each

For Your Reception Tables

Decorating your reception tables is so fun! It takes a lot of planning, and it’s a great opportunity to add color, light, and flowers. These Glass Deco Bottles come in a plethora of colors (seriously, just look here) and can add just the right hue to your reception tables. Pop in some flowers, and use the bottles as vases – I can just see them lined up on a window sill catching the light! They can also be used for vinegar and oil at home. What a fun way to display just about any liquid! Glass Deco Bottles, $8 each

When it comes to light, votives are low, safe, and add such an ambiance. Use these Organic Glass Votive Holders, and you are adding style on top of it! Whether used singly or in a group, the light will flicker off of the surface and create a romantic glow. Just imagine a reception lit up with these beauties, or keep a few on your dining room table for a romantic dinner for two. Actually, after planning a wedding, you may want to put them in the bathroom and light them during an evening soak in the tub. You deserve it! Organic Glass Votive Holder, Large $38, Small $18
