Real Wedding – Mercury Silver Glass Decorations & Details

Justine and Andy had an elegant wedding to tie in with their elegant venue, Walton Hall. They loved mercury silver glass so our mercury silver glass decorations were just perfect. They used our sister company Passion for Flowers for their florals. Justine’s bouquet was a beautiful mix of nude coloured Quicksand roses, cream ranunculus and astrantia.

Mercury Silver Glass Votives & Vases Along The Fireplaces

The fireplaces at Walton Hall were decorated with a mix of mercury silver items, from votives, to candle sticks to larger bottles (hired from Passion for Flowers).

 Mercury Silver Vases For Centrepieces

Justine and Andy chose two different styles of centrepieces for their wedding tables, both using mercury silver hurricane vases. We think our ribbed mercury silver tea light holders look fab dotted around the table, and the table numbers were held up by our mercury silver card holders.

Glass Jam Jars with Lids For Wedding Favours or Tea Lights

This week our wedding decorations of the week are our plain glass jam jars with lids. The jam jars can be used for all sorts of things on your wedding day. Perhaps you are making your own chutney or jam and gifting it as a wedding favour, our cute ‘spread the love’ favour stickers would look fab stuck onto the jam jars if you are. We also love the idea of planting a tiny plant or succulent in the jam jar as a wedding favour.

Alternatively use the jam jars without lids as a cost effective, simple glass tea light holder. You can decorate the glass yourself by adding hessian or lace as a finishing touch.

Beach Wedding Ideas & Inspiration

I have just come back from a thoroughly relaxing week in Cape Cod, the white sandy beaches and quaint towns make it a popular choice for weddings. As are many beaches around the world. We know a number of our customers are having beach weddings, if you’re one of them then our latest pinterest board is for you.

We have been pinning our favourite beach wedding ideas which will hopefully give you some inspiration. We love the idea of using some of your finds from the beaches in your decor, whether they’re shells, driftwood, starfish or pebbles there are lots of ways to include them at your wedding.

For beach weddings we love soft blues and grey tones mixed with sandy and ivory tones. Grasses, succuents and airplants work well mixed in with soft blue / green florals.

 Outdoor Wedding Ideas

DON’T FORGET THE OUTDOORS.

We all know you can’t predict the English summer weather but we are seeing more and more couples in the UK holding their weddings outdoors. And why not, there are some wonderful venues set in the English countryside with beautiful grounds.

Outdoor ceremonies and decorating the grounds

If you are dreaming of an outdoor ceremony find a venue with and outdoor location, once you’ve found the perfect venue there are some super pretty ways you can style your outdoor ceremony. I love the idea of entering the ceremony through wooden doors, these remain shut until the bride and her father enter through them. To creat the aisle, hang jam jars filled with pretty blooms from shepherds crooks, or if the ground is not suitable for shepherds crooks tie apothecary bottles to the chairs and add a flower. Guests will love all these pretty details.

If you are not opting for an outdoor ceremony but are lucky enough to have some sunshine on your wedding day you will no doubt be wanting to make the most of it. There are lots of lovely ideas for decorating outdoor spaces, hang pom poms and bunting around the grounds. Chose a feature tree to hang apothecary bottles each filled with a flower from the branches or even hang long strands of ribbon in your wedding colours.

Outdoor entertainment and lighting

Take the entertainment outdoors, a string quartet set up outside for an outdoor ceremony is always a lovely touch. Set up games outdoors, these will be enjoyed by children and adults! We have seen wedding guests enjoying sack races, giant jenga, croquet and children love pinatas.

Guests will enjoy spending time outdoors right through to the evening so don’t forget to enhance the gardens with lighting. Whether you choose tea lights in jam jars or larger lanterns, or opt for strings of light bulbs from trees this will light up the grounds beautifully. Paper lanterns work perfectly for weddings and are easy on the budget, just add a long lasting tea light and they will glow for hours. The The Wedding of my Dreams we sell a collection of paper lanterns and especially love out JUST MARRIED lanterns which are fab for photos.
