One 0f the most difficult aspects of wedding planning is organising the overall look and feel for the reception. This means decorations, and selecting the theme you’d like to have for your wedding. If you are a bride who is currently planning a summer wedding, you may often find yourself having a difficult time in terms of navigating your way through appropriate, unique and beautiful wedding decorations. Of course, every bride’s taste, style and sense of expression is different, but here are some ideas you can play around with when the time comes to decide upon what decorations your guests will find themselves amongst in.
Many often write off the use of candles at weddings as cliched or overdone, but candles are a timeless decoration that will never go out of style. Any venue will always find itself looking more romantic once candles come into play. When it comes to candles, the quantity is entirely up to you, however, bear in mind that you can have too many candles. It’s also important to be careful of where you place the candles, as you don’t want to set fire to the curtains accidentally. Candles will always be a classic way to set the mood and your wedding is no exception.
This little beauties will pretty much go with anything. They can dressed up or down, depending on what you want them to look like at your wedding. You can fill them flowers, use them as place card holders, or leave them completely empty. Using mason jars as a decorative pieces adds a more rustic and vintage feel to any event, so if that’s the wedding vibe you want, these jars are the best way to go! Not to mention, they make great cocktail glasses if you need. If you’re stumped on where exactly to find the best mason jars on the market, papier d’amour may be your new best friend.
If you’re a bride looking for something a little more on the unique side, you may be interested to know that small bird cages are a fantastically unusual decoration for any summer wedding. They’ll allow your wedding to take on a more nature-inspired vibe while also bringing on a more rustic, antique feel to your wedding.
Even the least creative person can never go wrong with flowers. One of the best aspects about using flowers as a wedding decoration is that they can be placed into or pinned onto almost anything! You’ll most likely choose a flower according to the colours used in your bridal party and overall wedding, so half the job is technically already done!
Using small photo frames make the perfect addition to any summer wedding, as they can be customised for any theme. Placing photos around an area never fails to give off a more homely vibe, and they provide your personal touch to the table as you get to decide what exactly to put in them. You options can include the table number, your favourite couple photo of you and your groom, both of your names in gorgeous calligraphy or you can even choose to keep them empty!
This one may come as a given, but place cards have the potential to become a tiny, yet incredible decoration when it comes to a summer wedding. Your wedding place cards can be anything but ordinary; how you choose to display your guests’ names is up to you and your own sense of style. We also love these place cards from papier d’amour as they are simple, yet elegant, to remind your guests that today is all about love.
Our final favourite are classic, clear fish bowls. Who knew they could be used for more than just keeping fish? The best thing about these decorations is how versatile they are – they’re limitless in their applications. Depending on the theme for your wedding, you can choose to fill your fish bowls with anything you like, such as roses, pebbles, sand, floating lilies or even candles. This choice is one of the most refreshing and unique approaches when designing your perfect summer wedding.
