Real Wedding – Wedding Cake Toppers, Cake Flags & Bunting

Cam and Sarah were married at Ettington Park, we just love their mint green and peach colour scheme. After the ceremony they had an afternoon tea party, the tables were piled high with home baked cookies and sweet treats which looked so delicious and we were thrilled to see a few of our wedding cake toppers. They had chosen our sister company, Passion for Flowers for their florals and the reception tables had an eclectic mix of glass bottles in the centre with an abundance of peach and cream blooms.

Wedding Cake Toppers - Cupcake flags from washi tape

Cam and Sarah made their own little flags for the sweet treats on their dessert table. These flags are made from our decorative washi tape and canape flags, find out how to make the cupcake flags here. Dotted in and around the home made paper flags were a few of our rustic flags tied with twine. We love the selection of sweet treats on offer.

They hung hessian just married bunting from the front of the dessert table for an extra touch.

Wedding Cake Toppers - Mini Bunting

Their wedding cake was a stack of miniature cakes, the top tier had a slightly larger cake for cutting. We think the the mr and mrs cake topper bunting looks fab with peach roses. mr and mrs bunting wedding cake topper mr and mrs cake topper bunting peach mint green wedding cake

Wedding Table Decorations

The room was filled with white paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, what an impact as guests enter the room! Then table decorations were quite simple with an eclectic mix of glass bottles, vases and jars. They used a few of our larger sweetie jars as vases which work really well for this look. Scattered around the venue on bookshelves and window sills were more floral decorations, flowers in jam jars wrapped in hessian and little succulents in jam jars. Extra little touches included our let the love grow stickers.

Mercury Silver Vases & Tea Light Holders – Styled Wedding Shoot

Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we love seeing how our couples use our wedding decorations at their weddings, but today we want to show you how florists use our decorations. The lovely Claire from Lily & May used a selection of our mercury silver votives, tea light holders and dainty mercury silver vases in a recent styled shoot at Fennes. We just love the gold sequins mixed with mercury silver, candle light and an abundance of roses in pretty pastel tones.

Real Wedding – Lavender Place Settings, Hessian Details & Cake Bunting

Claire and Ben were married at Cripps Barn, a lovely rustic barn venue in the Cotswolds. They wanted to create a rustic look at their wedding as this suited the style of venue they had chosen. They used a number of our rustic wedding decorations for their wedding, including lavender place settings, hessian details and mini cake bunting.

Lavender Place Settings

On each ladies place setting was a flat folded napkin, with an individual menu and a couple of stems of dried lavender tied with twine. Guests’ names had been stamped on to luggage tags to show them where to sit. lavender place settings with dried lavender on menu

Luggage Tags for Buttonholes with Names Stamped On

The buttonholes were all labeled up so guests knew who they belonged to, alphabet stamps were used to stamp the names onto luggage tags. We love this idea.

Just Married Hessian Bunting Along The Top Table

We love how our just married hessian bunting has been draped in front of the top table, it works perfectly with the hessian runners in this beautiful barn setting, just married hessian bunting along top table


Mini Bunting Wedding Cake Topper

Our mini bunting that spells out Mr & Mrs was used as the cake topper, we love how the cake’s been finished off with stems of lavender, hydrangea and hessian ribbon.

Pastel Wedding Ideas & Inspiration

Looking for pastel wedding ideas?

We love the pastel shades of blue, pink, mint green and lemon for a summer wedding. Our inspiration board shows some of our favourite pastel wedding ideas. How about asking all your bridesmaids to wear the same dress but in a different colour, this looks lovely for a relaxed summer wedding. Add pastel colours to your table decor with your choice of flowers, there are some really pretty pastel toned blooms, we love pale blue hydrangeas, peach roses and blush pink ranunculus. For the place settings a sprig of lavender on the guests napkins would add a touch of lilac. Scroll down for more inspiration.
