How to personalise a family heirloom

Weddings are the perfect opportunity to reconnect with family, friends and loved ones. Antiques handed down through multiple generations are often selected to play a part in wedding celebrations as a beautiful way of honouring ancestors. Sometimes, it’s nice to add your own personal stamp on family heirlooms, however, so here are a few ideas to get you started:

Adjustments

Tweaking a handed-down wedding dress to suit your personality is the most natural ways of adapting a family heirloom for your big day. Add or remove sleeves, adjust the hemline or attach extra embellishments to match your style.

Repurposing

Incorporating a family heirloom into your wedding day in a different role from its original purpose is another great way of paying tribute to your family roots. Use the ruffles from an heirloom gown or jacket and transfer them onto your own gown or clutch bag, for example. You could consider using part of an heirloom dress to create your wedding garter – the possibilities are endless.

Repainting

You could personalise a set of family crockery for your wedding reception by repainting each piece in a style to suit your big day. Even a subtle change of colour can give antique china a new lease of life. It’s a tasteful way of tying the past to your new future.

At Delamere Manor, your family heirlooms will have pride of place on your big day. To secure your booking at one of the top wedding venues in Cheshire, give us a ring today.
