You Will Need:

Cream Wooden Trug
Summer Mix Wedding Confetti
Brown Luggage Tags
Rustic Brown Alphabet Stickers

We suggest having a designated table for your confetti bar. Fill a wooden trug with some colourful confetti. We’ve opted for a gorgeous summer mix, consisting of various pink, purple and ivory petals. Our Sprinkle Me and Throw Me cotton bags are a lovely addition for your confetti bar, and you can offer them to guests if they’d rather take a bag of confetti.

Using the luggage tags and alphabet stickers, spell out ‘CONFETTI BAR’ and attach each luggage tag to a piece of twine ribbon. You’ll need to measure the length of the wooden trug, so that you can tie the twine ribbon to each end. This will let your guests know to help themselves!

Working together as the perfect ingredients for a show-stopping wedding theme, it’s effortlessly easy to recreate.

You’ll need a glittering copper, gold or bronze table cloth to use as the base for your rustic glamour wedding table. This will immediately sprinkle your special day with handfuls of sparkle and it’ll twinkle beautifully in the company of candles and as the evening draws in. Line the length of your wedding tables with our dried carpet moss – this makes a unique table runner that will help to give your tables a rustic feel. For an extra floral touch, work in a few of your favourite flowers along the moss runner.

How To Style A Bonfire Night Wedding

A Bonfire Night Wedding is a wonderful way to celebrate your special day with your guests. Whether you love the Autumnal time of year or bonfire night traditions, keep reading to find out how you can style a bonfire night wedding.

Toffee Apple Wedding Favours

One of the most prevalent traditions on bonfire night is of course, delicious toffee apples! You can easily incorporate these tasty delights into your bonfire night wedding. You could create a DIY Toffee Apple Bar and set up a table with bowls of toffee sauce, apples and some lollipop sticks. Alternatively, why not offer ready-made toffee apples as wedding favours? Put in each place setting with a name tag around the packaging or a cute ribbon.

Roasting Marshmallows

Marshmallows are a must-have at any bonfire night wedding. Offer as wedding favours to your guests so they can roast them later on in the evening at your very own wedding fire pit. You could also create a tempting Smores station next to the fire pit as an alternative to a dessert table. Delicious!

Build A Bonfire

If you want to go bigger than a fire pit, have you ever considered having a bonfire? In keeping with the Guy Fawkes tradition, build a bonfire ready to be set alight as the wedding parties on into the night. When it comes to fire-related activities, it’s always best to double-check whether your venue can accommodate it.
