I think these are two cute wedding alternatives. Take an old dresser and stage it for your seating arrangement cards or perhaps favors. You could paint it in your wedding theme colors and then have a super cool piece of furniture for your house later. I love the monogrammed letter above the dresser. The flowers give it a great pop of color.
This is neat alternative to using a pillow for a ring bearer. This bride used an antique little car. I think it is adorable and can serve as your gift for the ring bearer to keep as well.
