Wedding Dates

Décor and Flowers

For your wedding do you like the idea of rustic or woodland? Vintage? Bohemian? French picnic? Country garden? Beach? Winter wonderland?

Options are simply endless. Consider some details and decorate accordingly:

• Theme or colour scheme
• Your budget (that nasty word!)
• Wedding location
• Time of year
• The number of guests you intend having
• How far are you going to take this? Really?

Simple things that don’t have to cost the earth can really add character and personality to your wedding –

Hay bales…. Yes, I said hay bales!
Chalkboards
Escort cards
Paper lanterns
Bunting
Signs (huge this year!)
Mason jars (with flowers, with candles, with shells & sand, you name it! Hang them from trees, place them on your tables during dinner, and use them at your drinks reception)
Mix up the shapes of the tables, mix round with square

Etsy is a favourite website of mine for all sorts of cool wedding décor ideas, and they make it look so easy!

If vintage is what you want you have to look at Pearl and Godiva. They have an exquisite collection of stylish vintage and antique china dating from the 1890s to the 1960′s and have created beautiful & stylish weddings.

Flowers have to be part of your wedding décor – no wedding is complete without beautiful blooms.
More and more brides want a more natural and rustic look for their flowers; arrangements with a “just-picked” and looser casual look

Check with your florist as to what is seasonal and accessible at the time of your wedding. Create some boards on Pinterest of flowers, bouquets and arrangements that catch your eye (and décor) and give these to your florist so they completely get you!

Bear in mind that you don’t have to have it all at your wedding; sometimes less is more and going overboard on the décor can just ruin the whole look and feel! Don’t feel pressurized into going over budget to have lots of “extras”. Stop, stand back from it and ask yourself how you would like your wedding to look, what is you budget and what do you really want. Forget about keeping up with those Jones’!

With a little bit of creativity and a dash of DIY you could have sensational wedding décor!
