An Olive Green and Grey Wedding Colour Scheme

Today is all about an olive green and chic grey wedding colour scheme. This heavenly duo is perfect for that in-between season time, when it’s no longer Winter but not yet Spring. Teamed with lots of country-style wooden details this is the perfect ‘botanical meets rustic’ wedding theme. olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas

An Olive Green and Grey Wedding Colour Scheme

Kick-start your wedding planning off by deciding on your wedding stationery designs. We suggest keeping the same (or a similar) design throughout your day – from the save the dates to the table plan! This almost creates a ‘brand’ for your wedding day, and it’ll reflect your wedding style as a couple. White and grey stationery with olive green envelopes will start your wedding off wonderfully. I am a huge fan of watercolour grey wedding gowns and they’re perfect for a modern, fashion-forward bride. They’re delicate and beautiful, yet despite the colour they’re still incredibly bridal. Team with silver wedding accessories and jewellery for a truly striking look. A slate grey suit is an obvious option for this modern colour scheme, but navy shouldn’t be overlooked. Both grey and navy look handsome paired with olive green, so the choice is completely down to the groom’s individual style. Grey bridesmaid dresses are always going to look elegant on your ladies. Olive green gowns will look gorgeous on the right girl, but they may not suit everyone in your group! It’s best to try both colours on but make sure your bridesmaids feel 100% comfortable – if they don’t feel confident, it will show in the wedding photographs. I think this theme is particularly perfect for an outdoor wedding venue, and it’s best to incorporate a lot of nature elements into your decorations and the smaller details. Add sprigs of olive leaves to your place settings or even tie them around dark grey napkins. Wooden chairs and tables will add to the rustic feel of your big day, and they will add an Italian touch to your venue. Enhance this by using wooden tree slices as part of your table centrepieces and fill wooden crates with your favourite flowers. Wooden frames hanging from trees outside will create a fun space for photograph opportunities – you could use some DIY skills and create homemade photo props too. This could be a fun job for you and your bridesmaids to do! Style your reception tables with grey linen table runners and cloths. Use lots of grey linen ribbon throughout the little details too: tie around your wedding chairs or even your wedding bouquet. Olive scented candles will give your reception a lovely fragrance and how about olive scented soap for your wedding favours. Why not have an olive-flavoured wedding cake too? This unusual flavour is actually delicious, and you can guarantee your guests won’t have had it before… An olive green and grey wedding colour palette is understated, chic and modern – with a few rustic details thrown in! pin these images on pinterest olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas   olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas olive green and grey wedding decorations and ideas Photography Credits Image 1: SourcePhotographer / Image 2: Source Photographer / Image 3: SourcePhotographer / Image 4: Source Photographer / Image 5: SourcePhotographer / Image 6: SourcePhotographer / Image 7: SourcePhotographer / Image 8: SourcePhotographer / Image 9: SourcePhotographer / Image 10: SourcePhotographer / Image 11: SourcePhotographer / Image 12: Source - Photographer

Five Fab Ideas – Cute Confetti Bags 

I love throwing confetti at weddings and I think it’s one of the most exciting parts of the day. I also adore the ‘confetti shot’ and how it beautifully reflects the happiness of the newlyweds and guests. There are tons of fabulous ways of presenting your wedding confetti, so let’s take a look at some cute ideas for confetti bags! cute ideas for wedding confetti bags Image 1 - Source, Image 2 - Source

Throw Me Confetti Bags

Our ‘Throw Me’ cotton confetti bags (pictured above) are a popular choice for brides and grooms, and they look particularly fab displayed in a basket. Keep at the front of the church or ceremony room so that your guests can each pick up a bag on their way out. You can order the bags empty, or already filled with colourful confetti – or lavender grain!

Rustic Hessian Bags

Planning a country wedding? Or maybe you’re having a rustic affair? If so, hessian bags will fit in with your theme perfectly. Display in a wooden crate by your wedding venue entrance for an organic feel. Hessian confetti bags are best suited to natural confetti, such as lavender or dried rose petals. Why not add a little wooden sign with ‘throw some love’ written in calligraphy – this way your guests know exactly where to find it! hessian wedding confetti bags Image Source - Photographer

Something Different

Looking for something completely original? Confetti bags don’t have to be small, you could simply have 4 or 5 large hessian bags or brown paper bags brimming with confetti, dried leaves or sprigs of lavender. I love the thought of filling bags with olive tree leaves – perfect for an Italian, Summer soiree. brown paper bags filled with olive leaves wedding confetti idea Italy Image Source - Photographer

Get Personal

Personalised confetti bags are always a wonderful option. Having your names, wedding date and a lovely message written on each bag makes for an extra special celebration. Take a look at these fun, personalised confetti bags made up of organza material. paper confetti bright colours Image Source - Photographer

Double Up

I’ve sometimes found at weddings that it’s not clear where the confetti is and you end up missing the part where you throw it! Avoid this issue by attaching your confetti bags to the order of service, or your wedding programs. Your guests will love this idea and it’s something they probably won’t have seen before! individual confetti envelopes with order of the day Image Source - Photographer It’s easy to match your choice of confetti to your wedding theme too. For instance, if you’ve got a particular colour scheme why not match your choice of confetti colour to it? If you’ve opted for a floral wedding theme, then pretty dried petals are a must-have! Planning a wedding on a budget? Why not use cut shapes out of coloured paper or old newspapers? It may be time-consuming but it is the perfect option for a DIY savvy bride and groom. brown paper bags for confetti Image Source - Photographer Whether you’ve gone for organza or hessian, real petals or artificial petals, confetti is a beautiful part of any wedding day. The confetti shot is always natural, and you’re guaranteed to be beaming… shop-now Shop now! Biodegreadable petal confetti + confetti bags

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. tassel garlands for wedding getaway cards Image Source

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. balloons for wedding getaways Image Source - Photographer

‘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. just married signs wedding getaway cars     Image Source - Photographer

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. flower garlands and hoops wedding getaway cars Image Source - Photographer

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… Ideas-for-your-wedding-gift-table Image Source - Photographer

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. post box birdcage wedding cards Image Source

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. wedding mail box cards and gifts table Image Source - Photographer

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. wedding cards table mail box Image Source - Photographer

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! picnic hamper wedding cards table Image Source

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.

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. vintage style wedding cards and gifts table Image Source - Photographer It’s the little details that help your wedding reception reflect you as a couple.

6 Places Tea Lights Can Be Used At Your Wedding

Tea lights have always been a popular choice for weddings. They add a subtle glow that is not only romantic, it offers a welcoming warmth to your guests. They’re a simple way to decorate your wedding venue and are also incredibly purse-friendly! Today we’ve put together a few ideas for places you can use tea lights at your wedding. From city chic candle holders to country garden centrepieces, we’ve got it covered… 6 Places tea light holders can be used at your wedding sq Image Source - Photographer

Heart Candle Holders

We love the idea of using candle holders with a cute heart cut out – this is particularly apt if you’re tying the knot on Valentine’s Day! Planning a country wedding? Our wooden-inspired tea light holders are perfect for a rustic edge. Colourful candle holders will also look beautiful at a Spring or Summer wedding. The cut out gives a subtle glow from the warmth of the tea light. Why not mix and match your candle holders by filling two with tea lights and the other with some pretty blooms? Cluster a small group together and you’ve got yourself a beautiful wedding table centrepiece! rustic tea light holders for weddings Image Source

Copper and Geometrics

Metallic accents are becoming increasingly popular at weddings and we can definitely see why. Copper and rose gold are must-have metals for any wedding, and give off an industrial warehouse vibe. Tea lights in copper geometric holders are an ultra stylish addition to any wedding reception. Use a single geometric holder as a table centrepiece for a minimalistic look, or line along the ceremony aisle to add the ‘wow’ factor. Alternatively, group together on your wedding gift table around the edges of the table. Not only will they look chic, they’ll create a warm atmosphere. brass tea light holders and lanterns Image Source

Tea Lights as Wedding Favours

Wedding favours are usually the finishing touch of any wedding day and you want to give your guests something they’ll really appreciate. Why not offer tea lights in pretty lace or hessian candle holders? It means your guests can actually use them, and when they do they’ll remember your wedding day. jam jar tea light holders covered in lace Image Source - Photographer

Hanging Lanterns

Light up the outside of your wedding venue by hanging tea lights in glass lanterns in trees. This will create a wonderful glowing atmosphere when your guests step outside. They will also look incredible in your wedding photographs. Hang the vases or lanterns from different heights to create maximum impact. hanging tea light holders Image Source

Mason Jars

Mason jars and jam jars will never go out of fashion in the wedding world and we absolutely love them. They’re incredibly versatile and the possibilities are endless when it comes to wedding décor. Add a single tea light to each jar and decorate with something that ties in with your wedding theme. Hessian, lace or colourful ribbon will work perfectly. You could even decorate with a sprig of lavender for a pretty, floral style. They’ll look gorgeous placed on a wooden tree slice along with some jars of flowers as your table centrepieces. One mason jar will be enough if you’ve opted for a round table, but if you’ve got a trestle table line a number of jars along the table. You could even add a little glow to your wedding bar by dotting jars of candles along the front – just be careful they don’t get knocked over! glass tea light holders with herbs attached with twine Image Source - Photographer

Antique Birdcages

Looking for a vintage table centrepiece with a difference? We love the thought of placing a couple of tea lights in an antique birdcage. This look can be kept simple, or dressed up with a sparkly table runner or some pretty floral decorations. birdcage tea light holders Image Source - Photographer There are tons of different ways to include tea lights at your wedding and it’s no wonder they’re as popular as ever!
