Picture frames are the perfect wedding decor as they are so versatile. They can be used to display your table numbers, seating plan, or even as props to pose with, as well as making brilliant decorations hung from trees. We love the idea of having a pictures frame wall with a few ‘empty’ holes so that you and your guests can pop their heads through for the perfect picture.
Here are some fabulous ideas for using picture frames as your wedding decorations.
Whether you are having a vintage, country or garden wedding, using rustic wood props is a great way of styling your wedding. Old wooden crates full of flowers will look stunning as floral displays or table centrepieces, and if you source or hire old wooden crates you can also stack them as great decoration for your venue, or use them as your cake or dessert table to wow your guests.
Here are some great ideas for rustic wood wedding decor.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose is the best wedding of them all?
We love the idea of having mirrors as part of your wedding theme, and vintage mirrors add an extra elegance and charm. Mirrors are so versatile; not only will they look great as part of the decor for your wedding, but they are really useful as they can be written on to create menus and table numbers, and they also make great backdrops.
We just love the way you can decorate with pine cones, making them perfect for autumn and winter weddings. Not only do they look great, bringing the great outdoors indoors, they also add a beautiful rustic charm. If you love handmade items you could collect your own pine cones and get creative, and as pine cones are great decorative items, there are many places that you can source ready-made decorations.
These are some of our favourite ideas for pine cone wedding decorations.
As it’s Halloween on Wednesday, we thought we should create a little Halloween inspired wedding detail for you today. We have already shared this Halloween Wedding Theme mood board, so this year we thought we would find some fabulous ideas for using pumpkins at your wedding.
Today we are feeling all loved up, so today’s wedding inspiration mood board is ‘Love Birds’. We have mainly taken inspiration from products that are available to buy, however, if you are crafty we are sure you can recreate some of these ideas yourself.
Shropshire Petals has just launched a new range of chic vintage wheat sheaves, perfect for making beautiful wedding bouquets and table decorations.
Wheat fields all around the countryside are being cropped, processed and straw being baled. Shropshire Petals use wheat in a different way – to create beautiful wheat sheaves, perfect for your wedding.
Shropshire Petals grows and produces natural petal confetti and wheat sheaves on their Shropshire farm. They have just launched a new range of chic, English garden wheat sheaves, incorporating vintage roses, lavender and rose sprigs.
Add a touch of the country to your wedding:
Wheat sheaves make the perfect country style bouquet – a medium wheat sheaf is perfect. Adding subtle pink or cream roses to a wheat sheaf will add a beautiful vintage effect.
For brides wanting a delicate posy, a small wheat sheaf with touch of lavender or rose springs will create a beautiful bouquet.
Place a wheat sheaf in the centre of reception tables to create a natural, country feel to your wedding. Adding lavender to the wheat will create a delicate aroma for your guests – why not sprinkle some lavender grain or natural petal confetti on white table cloths to complement your centrepiece.
Tying wheat and lavender bundles to the end of pews or to the back of reception chairs will enhance the countryside theme, and can double up as favours for your guests.
Wheat sheaves are available with freeze dried roses in a range of natural colours, lavender, thistles, rose sprigs or completely plain. Available in four sizes, ‘Mini Me’, medium, large and a small wheat and lavender bundle; they are all perfectly tied with raffia to add to the natural feel.
You may have noticed the wheat in the Victory Bouquet given out to medal winners such as Jessica Ennis, Mo Farrah and Michael Phelps during the Olympics and Paralympics. Shropshire Petals supplied the wheat to Jane Packer, designer and creator of all 4800 bouquets. Add a part of British history to your home with Shropshire Petals Wheat Sheaves.
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do… What a cute idea to use bicycles as part of your wedding. We don’t mean any old mountain bike propped up against the wall… oh no! Using bikes; whether they are old fashioned bicycles with lovely big shopping baskets on the front that you can fill with beautiful flowers, or your much loved mountain bike that you can decorate with flowers and ribbons, they’ll make great photo props for your wedding pictures, and look great as part of your wedding decorations.
Here are some of our favourite ideas for using bicycles at your wedding.
Paper pom poms look fabulous as wedding decorations. Pom poms can be used as hanging decorations strung from ceilings and trees, hung on walls or material, as a backdrop for your wedding cake, dessert table or wedding pictures, tied to cutlery, and used as part of your place settings. The great thing about paper pom poms is you can have them as big or as small as you like, and in whatever colour you choose. We love the fun factor that paper pom poms create.
There are many companies that sell a wide variation of paper pom poms, or if you are crafty you could make your own. Here is a link to a YouTube video on how to make paper pom poms.
