If you adore the thought of using greenery as part of your table backdrop, but want something a little more romantic, consider creating a cute heart-shaped garland instead. This will look super sweet behind your cake or dessert table, particularly if you’re planning a Valentine’s Day wedding. You could also create mini versions for your chair covers or favours.

The outside of your wedding venue can often look a little bare in Winter, especially once all of the trees have lost their leaves. But don’t fret, it’s easy to make the outside of your venue look as good as the inside. Simply tie glass vases full of Winter blooms to the tree branches using a roll of twine ribbon.

Hanging vases and candle holders will look incredible tied along the beams, dangling over the reception tables.

Ideas For Hanging Vases

Hanging vases full of floral delights bring in a lot of colour and personality to your wedding venue. If your wedding is based outdoors, there are tons of different ways you can incorporate this idea into your décor.

Even if your ceremony and reception is based indoors, it’s likely that guests will wander out into the sunshine in the evening. Dress up the outside by hanging a handful of vases from the branches of trees. It’s important to make sure the outside of your venue looks beautiful, even if the majority is based inside.

If you’re lucky enough to be having your wedding breakfast outside, use hanging vases as an elevated table centrepiece. Base your tables under trees if possible and attach the vases full of flowers to the trees. This is such a unique, unusual idea that your guests won’t have seen before and it’s a great way to get everyone talking. Plus, if the tables are under the trees your guests will be able to stay cool in the shade during the scorching heat of the day.

Another way of using hanging vases at your Summer wedding day is by using them as a backdrop. They’re an incredible backdrop for your wedding photographs. Why not hang them behind your wedding cake or dessert table? Match the colours of your chosen flowers to your wedding cake and tasty treats for a look that is completely coordinated.

Mix and match with hanging vases containing tea lights too. The variety of flowers and candles will look beautiful and glowing in the evening. If you wanted a style that looks natural and a little mismatched, shake things up by using a mixture of jam jars, mason jars and vases. You can turn jam jars, bottles and vases into hanging vases yourself by tying twine or wire around the lip at the top of the jam jar and creating a loop to hang from – see our blog post .

You can get really creative when it comes to dressing your vases. Lace ribbon looks beautiful wrapped around a vase and is perfect if you want an elegant wedding style. Hessian ribbon or natural twine is a great choice if you’re having a rustic or woodland wedding, and will fit in beautifully with your surroundings. Inject a splash of colour by using colourful ribbon to hang the vases from the trees with. It’s so easy to blend the vases into your colour scheme with the colour of the ribbon.

Hanging vases look fab if they’re hung from a variety of different heights, and it makes the décor look absolutely effortless. If you’ve not got many trees surrounding your wedding venue, fear not! Source as many shepherd hooks as you need, and plant them into the ground instead. Alternatively, add a few nails to a plank of wood that can be hung up somewhere – that would look gorgeous behind your dessert table.

The flowers you choose for the vases are incredibly important. Natural, wild flowers are perfect if you’ve opted for a country or English garden theme. However, roses or peonies are beautiful for an elegant affair. Be sure that they tie in with the rest of your wedding flowers, even if you are doing this bit yourself, as you don’t want them to be too contrasting.

Lanterns at weddings are a beautiful way to decorate any wedding venue. They’re an extremely versatile piece of décor and suit all wedding styles.

You can line them along your ceremony aisle full of pretty flowers, or hang from the trees for ambience – there are oodles of options. Not only do they dress up a blank space, they double up as atmospheric lighting. What’s not to love about lanterns? Read on to see how you can use lanterns at your special day…

Aisle Style

One of the most beautiful ways to use lanterns at weddings is by using them to decorate the ceremony aisle. This is such a simple, yet effective way to add something special to your ceremony room. You can add as many or as little as you want – it’s completely down to your wedding style, and you’ll be able to judge how many your venue needs. I love the idea of placing a lantern on either side of the aisle, at every line of seating. Fill with pillar candles or small tea lights for a warming glow as you say your vows.

Table Centrepieces

You’re completely spoilt for choice when it comes to using lanterns as table centerpieces, the possibilities really are endless! If you’re going down the route of a sparkly or metallic wedding theme, why not use a simple gold or silver lantern with a large candle. Metallic shades are seriously hot for 2016, and they’ll look so chic on your reception tables. For extra impact, surround the lantern with mercury silver or copper candle holders. Add a white few simple flowers for a touch of elegance.

If you’re planning a gorgeous Summer soiree, consider filling lanterns with beautiful blooms. Match your chosen flowers to your wedding bouquet for a table centerpiece that fits in with your wedding theme. Pink pillow-soft peonies look fab in gold lantern holders. Want something with a rustic feel? Wooden lanterns will look just as good. Geometric style lanterns are extremely popular at the moment, and are fab for an urban wedding.

For a finishing look, decorate with a table runner that matches your colour scheme. This will really complete your reception tables and complements the look of the lanterns.

Evening Ambience

You could just use lanterns in the evening too – who doesn’t love the glimmering glow of a lantern in the evening? They’ll create a lovely warm atmosphere as your guests dance their way into the night. All you need are a few bridesmaids on-hand to help out with lighting the lanterns and dotting them around your wedding venue.

Hanging Lanterns at Weddings

One of my favourite ways of using lanterns at weddings is by hanging them from the trees outside your wedding venue – this is particularly perfect if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Adorn the lanterns with beautiful flowers for a gorgeous, natural style.

If the majority of your wedding is based inside, you could hang paper lanterns from the ceiling of your wedding venue. Colourful, rainbow-inspired paper lanterns look truly fab and add a pop of colour to even the most modest of venues. Alternatively, keep it classic with simple white lanterns.

As you can see, there are so many ways to use lanterns at weddings. They’re a wonderful addition to any wedding and can really help your wedding décor come together. Depending on how you dress your lanterns, they may be the only wedding décor you need for your big day…
