Elegant Wedding Drinks Stations with Gold Candelabra

We spotted our drinks dispensers used on an elegant drinks station set up recently and think they look fab teamed with gold candelabra. Our drinks dispensers were used as part of a shoot at Hambledon House, see the full shoot over on German blog Hochzeitswahn.

Drinks tables are often styled in a quirky, bright or rustic setting, we love the elegant feel to this set up. The drinks dispensers are positioned at different heights on the table to add interest and gold vases and gold candelabra are used to create an elegant setting. Pretty votives and flowers complete the look. Photography by Marie Marry Me.


Pressed Glass Hanging Vase For Weddings

This week our wedding decoration of the week is our pressed glass hanging vase. Perfect for hanging both indoor and outdoors at your wedding. The pressed glass vases can be filled with flowers or if you would prefer to use them as lanterns add a tea light. Hang from trees outside at your venue, using long ribbons in trees or alternatively hang indoors from wooden beams. We think these look best when hung at different heights. Alternatively hang the vases from shepherds crooks and used to line the aisle or just to pretty up your outdoor areas.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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. whimsicalwonderlandweddings

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…

Reasons You Need A Roll Of Twine For Your Rustic Wedding

Here at The Wedding Of My Dreams we are certainly partial to a rustic wedding. There is something seriously special about a natural, homespun celebration. And we believe that no rustic wedding is complete without lots of twine details. A roll of twine is the perfect way to add a rustic touch to your wedding décor.

You can use twine from everything to your stationery to your centrepieces! It’s time to get creative and find out how you can use a roll of twine on your wedding day…

Wedding Bouquet And Buttonholes

Using a roll of twine in your wedding bouquet will really make your flowers stand out and it will be a unique alternative. Wrap the twine around the stems of your bouquet – you could even add a few other touches, such as a locket or a mini photo frame. Make sure your groom doesn’t miss out on all the fun! Twine can be used for buttonholes too – simply wrap a small strand of twine around the stem of his buttonhole for a fab finishing touch to his outfit.

Hanging Decorations

A roll of twine is strong enough to hold vases and bottles brimming with bright, beautiful blooms. If you’re having your wedding outside hang vases from the trees or by your venue entrance. You could even hang the twine along your ceremony aisle – it’ll look stunning!

Wedding Favours

Are you stuck for ideas when it comes to your wedding favours? There are plenty of ways to make your favours look fabulous. Wrap a roll of twine around homemade jars of jam or chutney for a wonderful countryside style. I love the thought of wrapping seed packets in brown rustic paper and tying with a twine bow. It’ll fit in with a rustic wedding flawlessly, and your guests will take away favours they’ll actually appreciate!

Table Centrepieces

Jars and vases full of pretty floral arrangements make wonderful table centrepieces. You can up-cycle a plain glass jar by wrapping twine and lace ribbon around the brim. It’ll add something extra and will match the rest of your wedding décor perfectly.

Wedding Stationery

Why not kick-start your rustic wedding theme with your stationery? A roll of twine will go beautifully with any style or design – whether it’s simple and white, or colourful and floral.

Roll Of Twine Bunting

You can make your own bunting using a roll of twine. Personalise your wedding day by hanging polaroid photographs with wooden pegs on twine, and drape around your wedding venue. Consider including photographs of your guests – they’ll find it great fun spotting themselves on your memory wall. If you’re lucky enough to have a polaroid photo-booth, create a new string of twine for your guests to stick their photographs on during the big day. You’ll have your very own wedding bunting and it’ll be great entertainment.

Place Settings

Jazz up your place settings by wrapping twine around your napkins and cutlery. Add a sprig of lavender or greenery for an organic feel. This is such a budget-friendly idea that will make your place settings look beautiful.

Rustic Table Plan

A roll of twine can easily be used to create your wedding table plan. Drape twine from a wooden crate or even a ladder, and add your seating plan cards using wooden pegs. Dot a few vases of blooms on the ladder and voila! You’ve got yourself a gorgeous rustic table plan.

Keep Warm At English Summer Weddings

Summer weddings are the most popular time of year to tie the knot. But it doesn’t mean that you are guaranteed glorious sunshine. English weather is always unpredictable so it’s important you prepare! Take a look at our top ways to keep warm at English Summer weddings so you and your guests can relax and enjoy your special day.

Open Fire Pit

Everybody loves a good bonfire, so what better way to keep your guests warm than a romantic open fireplace. You may be really lucky if your wedding venue already has one, so be sure to ask if you can use it during the evening celebrations. If your wedding venue doesn’t (which will most likely be the case), ask if you could bring your own fire pit to make the cooler evenings more bearable.

You could hire some sofas or armchairs and create a cosy lounge area – which is especially perfect for the elder members of the family to relax away from the party. If you’re planning a country barn wedding, hay bays are the perfect choice for your chill-out area.

Toasting Marshmallows

If you do choose to have an open fire pit during your evening reception, marshmallows are a must-have! Treat your guests to marshmallows as wedding favours – it’ll give them a subtle clue about the evening reception. Alternatively, you could have a marshmallow bar area, where guests can create their own marshmallow masterpiece! Buy an assortment of different marshmallow colours and shapes for a fun touch.

I also love the idea of warming hot chocolates and mini marshmallows in the evening. Keep it modern by serving in copper or silver mugs. Add a few flavoured syrups to the table and you’ve got your very own mini hot chocolate bar! A piping hot drink in the chilly evenings is always appreciated, and your guests will love the idea of it.

Cosy Blankets

Provide your guests with some cosy shawls and blankets. Dot around your wedding venue in baskets with some cute signage to match, so your guests know they can help themselves. Your guests will really appreciate the gesture, especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding reception. If your budget allows it, they could double up as luxury wedding favours.

Warming Food

Hiring a food van that serves delicious warm food! A wood-fired pizza van or rustic burger van is a great way of keeping your guests both warm and fed late in the evening.

Rainy Summer Weddings

Even if you’re having a wedding in the middle of Summer, there is always a slight chance of rain! Wedding wellies and umbrellas are becoming increasingly popular at festival-inspired, country and outdoor wedding celebrations. Not only do they keep you dry, they create some wonderful wedding photograph opportunities. Choose wellies that match your colour scheme for the bridal party and avoid a wedding washout.

Prepare Your Guests

The weather at Summer weddings can be unpredictable, so keep an eye on the forecast in the lead up to your big day. If it’s going to be chilly or raining prepare your guests in advance and suggest that they bring coats, jackets or umbrellas. If you’ve got a wedding website, be sure to update it with the weather forecast.

Aisle Style

Accessories your bridal outfit so you stay warm as the evening draws in. A fab sequin jacket will look super glam while keeping you cosy, meaning you can dance the night away without worrying about being cold.

A tweed suit will keep your groom looking stylish and feeling warm. Keep cool during the day with a crisp shirt and then add layers such as a waistcoat and jacket for the evening.
