We love the elegance and sophistication of porcelain, especially blue and white bone china; think of the famous ‘Willow pattern’ with the intricate designs. Using porcelain as the inspiration for wedding styling should of course incorporate the china itself; how about having each place setting laid with these plates and tea cups. There are many others details that you can use, such as porcelain themed bunting, mismatched tableware to add a little casual flair, blue and white vases, and even sweet treats with patterned designs.

Here are some of our favourite ideas for blue and white porcelain wedding styling.

If you are not a fan of gold then rose gold might just be the wedding colour you are looking for. Rose gold is sophisticated and contemporary, works well with other colours, and looks amazing on wedding cakes, clothing and centrepieces.

If you are looking for a little glam for your wedding, rose gold works really well in metallic shades as well as sequins and glitter. You could incorporate rose gold into your wedding table styling with a sparkly table cover or runner, painted vases and candlesticks. For bridal styling, rose gold jewellery is exquisite and complements any skin tone.

Here are some of our favourite ideas for rose gold wedding styling.

A hot new trend for 2015 wedding cakes is the chalkboard wedding cake. We are totally in love with them and they can be so unique and personal to you and your styling. Think how cool your wedding cake will look if you have your own personal details scribed onto it; this could be your names and your wedding date, a little love poem or simply what you love about each other. Depending on your wedding styling you may choose to have a tiered wedding cake all as a chalkboard, or a beautiful cake with one chalkboard tier; the choices are endless!

Here are some of our favourite ideas for chalkboard wedding cakes. Which is your favourite?

This week we have some fun ideas for using candy canes as part of your wedding decor. If you are having a Christmas wedding and want something fun, candy canes are just the ticket. With their bold red and white stripes they work perfectly with other Christmas colours such as green, gold and silver. Using candy canes as part of your wedding decor could be something as simple as a candy cane for your wedding guest table settings, or you could make a wreath from them.

It’s only ten days until the big day and we are feeling very festive here at The Wedding Community. We have another festive inspired wedding inspiration mood board for you today with some of our favourite ideas for mistletoe wedding decor.

If you are having a winter or Christmas wedding and are looking for some really festive decor, how about mistletoe? Mistletoe looks great used as small posies for buttonholes and place settings, and also as large arrays for bouquets and table displays. With its romantic connection ‘kissing under the mistletoe’, you could use it for decoration suspended around your venue for your guests to share a little Christmas kiss!

If you like this idea also take a look at these Holly and Ivy Wedding Ideas.
