Known for her beloved fashion boutique Barefoot Contessa, Eva De Viveiros recently launched a new home and gift shop at Kingsway and Fraser. This beautifully curated boutique boasts an enchanting mix of both new and vintage treasures – achieving that perfect sense of on-trend nostalgia. Whitewashed antlers, battered vintage suitcases, pretty floral teacups and many more accent items would help set the stage for a dreamy rustic-chic farm wedding. Brides and grooms can also shop here for table numbers, place cards, serving tools, cake stands and all sorts of accessories to help put together a photo-ready tablescape.

The Party Bazaar

1296 Station St, Vancouver, BC V6A 2X3

Not just a go-to shop for your Halloween costume, The Party Bazaar is a full-on party supply store that can help take your wedding from basic to BEST DAY EVER. Pick up sparklers for those after-dark group shots, gold foil letter balloons to spell out special messages or initials, and even tiny puppy-sized tuxedos for your four-legged ring bearer. From “Just Married” car signage to photo booth props to flower petal confetti, this one-stop shop has it all – and at very reasonable prices. There’s even bride and groom themed toilet paper for couples with a sense of humour.

Antique Market

1324 Franklin St, Vancouver, BC V5L 1N9

Set aside an afternoon to visit this expansive antique market in East Van to source one-of-a-kind items. The sprawling 20,000-square-foot warehouse is a favourite spot among local interior designers, set decorators and restaurants thanks to its wide selection of antiques sourced from around the world. Decorative treasures, textiles, dishware and furnishings – you’ll find everything you could possibly need to pull off that romantic wedding look. Pick up wrought iron archways to help create the perfect floral backdrop, antique mirrors for a creative seating plan, and small-scale knickknacks like typewriters or record players to pull together the vintage theme.

Opus Framing & Art Supplies Ltd

1677 2nd Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6J 1H3

Local creative types applaud Opus for its high quality art supplies that appeal to professionals and amateurs alike. Many of the creative goods here – art boards, paint, origami paper – would be put to good use by artistically inclined brides and grooms looking to handcraft some wedding day masterpieces. Metallic glazes and sprays can turn basic Ikea lanterns into glittering centrepieces, while children’s easels could be used for chalkboard menu signs and seating plans. And if you’re planning on wowing your guests with beautiful invitation envelopes and place cards, you’d better pick up a calligraphy kit to help with your penmanship.

Meanwhile, the stationery section is stocked with party garlands, ornate cake toppers, table numbers, place cards, pastel confetti kits and classic milk glass cake plates. Better yet, sign up for the store’s wedding registry while you’re there and add some items to your wish list.
