If you’re reading this you’d really like your wedding decor to ROCK. So I’ve put together a few images from some of our favourite sites to show how you can do just that and without using lots of cash from the wedding kitty. From making a statement entrance that will get your guests talking to making sure your food platform packs a punch we think these 5 top tips will really make an impact on your decor.
1. MAKE A STATEMENT ENTRANCE.
A big statement welcome will set your day off with a bang. Right from the first moment guests arrive capture their imagination. A chalkboard with hand written message and crates of flowers looks amazing on this stairwell. Scatter through some tea lights in jars, vintage cameras or old typewriters for a little more interest. Or go big and bold with a bike, I adored this look this summer using large props to lead the way.
2. A WARM WELCOME.
Pouring delicious drinks from dispensers into Jam jars or little bottles will really make that first congratulatory drink a great one. Think about added interest with hand painted signage and a kooky base to serve the drinks from, an old dresser or stacked hay bales and boxes. Use old tin baths or troughs and barrows to keep the beers for the boys cool. Trust me they’ll be going back for another.
3. HAVE SOME FUN.
Have a little fun with your decor ideas. Some of my favourite pins are those with sweet messages or personal quotes from books or films. Dabble in a DIY day and create something truly unique from found items. Dreamcatchers have my heart at the moment but macrame back drops and featuring feathers make for a cool, chilled out look too.
4. GIVE YOUR FOOD A PLATFORM.
Give a little thought to your food service. Wether it’s a buffet or bbq think about how it’s served up. Add some height with up turned apple crates and mix up the serving platters, plates and boards. Wood and slate keep things relaxed and adding some white china and glass keep the styling laid back. Little open cabinets make it an exciting little trip to fill your plate.
5. LIGHT UP THE NIGHT.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, lighting is everything at your venue. It totally sets the mood and feel for the day and long into the night. My obsession with festoon lighting continues – As a ceremony backdrop, strung outside to light pathways or to add some sparkle over the dance floor they’re not going anywhere and will remain a firm favourite with us. Candle light is timeless, think about new ways of working candle light in your space.
Are you ready to make your decor rock? Have you got a big statement idea tucked up your sleeve.
