Retro Ribbon

Ribbon is a super easy and effective way to jazz up your getaway car, and there are a number of possibilities when it comes to decorating with ribbon. Simple white ribbon will look wonderfully elegant if you’ve got a classic black car. An array of different coloured ribbon will look beautiful if you want something a little more fun. You can tie ribbon to the car bumper, but if you really wanted to go all out you could tie it to the door handles and the side-mirrors.

Fabulous Balloons

We love the idea of using large balloons that fit in with your colour scheme. You can tie them onto the car book or to an open roof. Heart-shaped balloons are super cute and they are especially perfect if you’re tying the knot on Valentine’s Day. They also make for picture-perfect photographs and are very gentle on the purse strings, which is great if you’re planning a wedding on a budget.

‘Just Married’ Signs

A ‘just married’ sign or number plate is obviously a must-have when it comes to your wedding car. Our white wedding number plate can be stuck over your existing number plate, and will let everyone know that you are newlyweds! Consider adding tin-cans or ribbon for extra impact.

Floral Garlands

Floral garlands are a beautiful way to decorate your getaway car, especially if the blooms match your wedding bouquet. You could decorate your ‘just married’ sign with a U-shaped garland for a pretty, feminine look.

Colourful Pom-Poms

Pom-poms are relatively new in the world of weddings but newlyweds are absolutely loving them! They’re perfect for a splash of colour and will look wonderful tied to the bumper. There are tons of easy DIY pom-pom tutorials out there which is helpful if you’re trying to save money.

Vintage Tin-cans

If you wanted to go for the classic getaway car look, tin-cans are a must-have! You could write your own messages on each tin can for a romantic, personal touch? Mix old with new by adding ribbons or pom-poms amongst your tin cans. This is the ultimate wedding send off!

Beautiful Bunting

If you’ve decorated your wedding venue with bunting, why not extend this to your wedding getaway car? Drape hessian ‘just married’ bunting across the back of the car bumper and you’re ready to drive off into the sunset!

Lovely Ideas For Your Wedding Gift Table

The majority of couples opt for a wedding gift table or somewhere to collect their wedding cards. It’s become an essential part of the wedding décor too, with brides and grooms getting super creative! It’s important to create a clear, designated area for your wedding guests to leave their gifts and guards, as they’ll want to put them down as soon as they arrive at the reception.

If you want to really make your wedding gift table part of the reception, we’ve put together a few fab ideas to get you feeling inspired…

Vintage Birdcage

This is seriously pretty way of creating an area for your wedding cards and gifts, particularly if you’re planning a vintage themed wedding. Adorn with delicate flowers and subtle bird motifs to complete the look. For a completely coordinated look, opt for the same blooms as you’ll have in your wedding bouquet.

American Mailbox

We adore the idea of collecting your wedding cards and letters in our American mailbox. Vintage mailboxes surrounded by jars of flowers or worn-out books look wonderful displayed on a gift table. Why not ask your guests to write their best wedding advice on postcards and leave them in the post box – this would be a lovely idea to read back after your wedding day.

Colourful Mailbox

If you love the thought of a mailbox but want it to fit in with your theme, you could always paint it to suit your colour scheme. A fun flag garland with ‘cards’ written on it is a fab addition. This look will definitely make a statement at your wedding reception.

Card Bunting

Whatever you choose to collect your wedding cards in, ‘cards’ bunting is a must-have! Drape across a suitcase or wooden crate to add a feminine touch. It’ll also be super clear for your guests to see where the card collection area is. If you’ve got another designated area for gifts, search around to see if you can find matching ‘gift’ bunting too!

Antique Suitcase

If you want something a little different for your wedding décor, consider a suitcase! This alternative option is perfect for a vintage wedding and there are tons of different ways to style it. A pretty floral suitcase will look fab if you’re planning a country garden wedding theme. On the other hand, if you’ve decided on a glamorous 50s theme, distressed leather suitcases are a great addition. Display on a table decorated with vintage photograms and cute props.

Props for your wedding gift table

Do you really want to create an impact with your wedding gift table? Decorate your table with large letters such as ‘Mr and Mrs’ or your initials for a personal touch. Using your favourite photographs of you as a couple is also a lovely idea, and will be a talking point for your wedding guests. Table runners will add a pop of colour to your wedding table and they come in a variety of styles.

Adding the seating arrangements to the plants is a pretty way to direct your guests to their seats. Your florist should be able to help you out with regards to choosing your flowers.
