Something Old, Something Borrowed
If you’re a vintage-chic bride craving a reception adorned with birdcages, library card catalogs, and faded luggage, you’re not alone. “When I was planning my wedding, I was looking for lots of old things and realized that there was nowhere I could rent it,” says Amanda Ryan, owner of Lime Canary Vintage Rentals. “I needed to buy it all.” Unhappy with that option, Ryan started a business in 2011, and it has already moved from its first St. Paul location into a larger warehouse space in the same building. Ryan now spends most of her time in rural Minnesota hunting for goods to add to her collection of retro cake pedestals, Mason jars, vintage chairs, and elegant couches. Rent these affordable accents and your walk down the aisle will also be a trip down memory lane.
