Ask your guests to go back in time with this creative detail

The Bouqs 728x90


Have you been scanning wedding blogs for ideas for your own big day? You may have spotted a few real weddings that featured a vintage typewriter as the wedding guest book. Retro-inspired weddings have been including this ancient office apparatus–did you know the last typewriter was manufactured a few months ago?–as a way for guests to “write” well wishes to the happy couple. Finding the right typewriter is the hard part. Kasbah Mod rents a variety of (working) typewriters from 1908 to 1975 for events. Vintage styles were manufactured in a variety of colors so you may even be able to find a style to match your wedding’s color palette! I know, that may be too Martha Stewart, but it would look great in photos.

A three-day rental fee averages $135 plus shipping both ways. You can check out all the styles at Kasbah Moderne. For more information, call 347.457.6025, or e-mail
