If you are having a vintage, country garden or tea party themed wedding, how about using old vintage suitcases as part of your wedding decoration? You can find old suitcases from charity shops, antique shops and even car boot sales. They make fabulous decorations simply stacked up and you could also use one for your table plan. With the case open and stood on end, fix strings across it so you can attach luggage tags or something similar displaying your table details. It’s also a lovely idea to use an open, decorated suitcase for your guests to leave your wedding cards in.

Here are some of our favourite ideas for using suitcases as wedding decorations.
