One of my aims when I started blogging was to use LMW as a place to showcase really good british wedding suppliers (something I struggled to find when planning mine). The one off bridal boutiques, beautiful venues, photographers that know how to get THAT picture… the list goes on. I also want to feature people within the UK industry that are doing something cool, or stylish or a little bit unique. It is finding these suppliers and sharing them with you that makes me tick, and Vintage Twee is one of them!
* Pillow Talk Romantic Favour Boxes – £2.25 each
These special pillow-shaped favor boxes have been hand crafted using excerpts from a 1940s love letter from a young girl named Anna to her soldier sweetheart during World War Two. Each box has been wrapped in different parts of the writing and features a photo of the couple taken from the actual letter itself. The words across the boxes read: Cherish, Adore, Hope and Wish. They have been decorated with vintage lace and ivory pearls and finished with a sprinkle of gold glitter. They can also be customized with guest names on the top and make lovely gift boxes for jewellery as gifts to bridesmaids. Perfect for a 1940s themed wedding!
* Decorative Tea Favours – £2.00 each
Treat your guests to a cup of their favourite tea with these Alice in Wonderland themed favours, designed to hold individual tea bags. They are made using a selection of decorative card and embellished with ribbon, lace and other adornments for complete Wonderland appeal. Each favour displays a different entertaining tea quote from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
These favours are a lovely addition to an Alice in Wonderland or tea party themed wedding. They are also available with tea quotes from playwrights and other authors for a more general appeal to all tea lovers!

Break the ice between your guests with these lovely Conversation Starters! Each pack contains 8 mini envelopes and cards, containing a different topic to get people talking around the table. The envelopes are made from high quality, decorative card and embellished with ribbon and a small gemstone or pearl. These can be displayed at individual place settings to make lovely favours or presented on a decorative plate or a tiered cake stand as a table centrepiece. They can also be customized with questions and answers inside about the bride and groom!

These favours are made from beautiful decorative paper and adorned with embellishments such as ribbon, lace and pearls. Each cone is filled with faux roses of a complimentary colour and vintage shredded music sheets. They are presented individually wrapped in clear cellophane and hand tied with ribbon. They look lovely at individual place settings or in a shallow bowl as a centre table decoration. These cones can be custom made to your desired colour scheme.
* Eat Me Party Picks – £3.00 for pack of 8
These cute party picks would be the perfect addition to cupcakes or other small food items at a vintage or Alice in Wonderland/tea party themed wedding, or even just to let your guests know the food is there to be eaten!

Fantastic value, beautiful handmade goodies from a lady that is living her dream doing something that she loves. I wanted to find out a bit more about Vintage Twee…..
* Why did you set up Vintage Twee
Vintage Twee was created out of my passion for tea, classic romance &, of course, ambition. Officially I opened my doors for business in March 2010 but Vintage Twee was the lifelong dream of a little girl who favourite past times were her ‘making box’ and preparing her Auntie Edith’s tea trolley in Yorkshire with fresh sandwiches and cakes. My aim is to add a touch of English authenticity to your special day with my range of unique favors, table centrepieces and dining accessories.
* Why do you think brides would use Vintage Twee when looking for something a bit different or special for their wedding day?
Every item I make has been individually hand crafted to the highest standard and is not mass produced, therefore no two brides need have the same thing. As I am only a small company, I am able to offer a very personalized service and am keen to work together with a couple to ensure they get exactly what they want for their day. I am flexible, reliable and most importantly friendly so no request is too small! Whether you are having a vintage themed wedding or are just looking for something that little bit different, Vintage Twee can provide brides with something extra special with it’s authentically English appeal for an unforgettable and truly beautiful wedding.
You can buy these and many more from her Etsy shop or email joanne on email@example.com .. lets all support these new upcoming creators of beautiful things!
