If Music Be The Food Of Love, Play On: A Classic Sheet Music Wedding

Shakespeare said, “If music be the food of love, play on.” Whether you are a classically inspired bride, a musician or want a touch of vintage charm to your wedding day - using sheet music as a theme is not only versatile but quite affordable - you can create a variety of items using these recycled papers.  If you’re not handy with a glue gun, sheet music wedding decor is readily available from a variety of shops online and on my favorite handmade shopping site Etsy.  Perfect for rustic, vintage, chic weddings - these evoke old time charm and modern touches.  If I was planning my own music inspired wedding, I’d definitely add some of these touches.  I especially love the treble clef necklaces; I may even buy it for myself even without a wedding planned!
