Winter Wreath

Winter wreaths are traditionally used during the festive season, so why not include them at your Winter wedding? A festive wreath will look enchanting hung on the door of your venue entrance. Alternatively you could hang it at the front of your ceremony room. It would be a romantic backdrop while you’re saying your vows.

Winter Wedding Ceremony Chairs

Tie a white lace ribbon around the back of each of your ceremony chairs for a snowflake effect. If you want a rustic feel, wrap a few branches of fir with twine around the top of the chairs. Both styles are simple yet look incredibly effective.

Festive Bells

Some venues don’t allow confetti, so we’ve got a different idea that is perfect for a Winter wedding ceremony. Use bells as an alternative – simply tie a few bells together with some pretty ribbon and a ‘Merry Christmas’ tag. You could put them in wicker baskets at the end of the ceremony room. Your guests can ring the bells rather than throwing confetti – you’ll still have the same smiling reaction and it’ll help to get everyone in the festive mood.

Snowflake Confetti

If you want something a little different to traditional petal confetti, you’ll love our white flakes! Sprinkle down the aisle for a Winter wonderland effect or ask your guests to throw during the confetti moment.

Wedding Venue Entrance Decor

Use lanterns and candles at your wedding venue entrance to welcome your guests to your Winter wedding ceremony. Your venue will look especially beautiful when it gets dark.

Light Up Your Aisle

If you like the idea of using lanterns at your wedding venue entrance, why not use them as part of your aisle decor? Place a lantern along the end of each pew and nestle in some festive foliage.

Accessorise Your Order Of Service

Wrap your order of service with twine ribbon and attach a sprig of fir to it. Other Winter elements, such as berries or pine cones will look delightful too. They can make even the simplest of stationery designs look incredible.

Fir And Glitter Backdrop

Floral garland backdrops were a huge hit for Spring and Summer weddings and this trend works for Winter weddings too! Rather than using Summer blooms, tie pinecones and small fir twigs to string. Feathers dipped in gold glitter are a fab addition and they will add to the festive atmosphere.

Winter Archway

Wooden ceremony archways are always beautiful, particular in the Winter. They also make for some romantic photograph opportunities.

Christmas Stars

Our wooden Christmas decorations are perfect for a Winter wedding ceremony. Consider having a mini Christmas tree at the front of your ceremony room, and a hang a few of the wooden stars on the branches. On the other hand, you could place them on entrance tables, along the aisle pews or dangling from your ceremony chairs.

Cute Signs For Flower Girls And Page Boys

Flower girls and page boys are often one of the sweetest parts of a wedding ceremony – but we’ve got an idea to make their role even cuter! Ask your flower girls and page boys to hold personalised signs as they make their way down the aisle. Not only will your little helpers love holding the signs, your guests will certainly smile at the idea. From rustic hessian banners to pretty chalkboard signs, there are so many lovely designs out there. Take a look at a few of our favourite signs for flower girls and page boys…

Cute Signs Flower Girls and Page Boys

These two signs are a wonderful combination of humour and romance. Your guests will chuckle as they see the ‘I Am Only Here For The Cake’ sign, but you can guarantee to see smiles when the ‘Here Comes Your Bride’ sign quickly follows behind.

Planning a Valentine’s day wedding? Then a heart-shaped sign is the perfect match for your ceremony! Your flower girl will simply adore carrying a pretty pink or lilac heart sign with a personalised message on it.

If you still want your flower girl to throw rose petals down the aisle, why not write ‘Here Comes The Bride’ on a metal bucket? Alternatively, you could hang a DIY sign onto a wicker basket. A basket brimming with confetti and petals will only add to the sweetness of having a flower girl.

Our chalkboard signs are incredibly popular. Ask one of your flower girls or page boys to carry the ‘Here Comes The Bride’ sign for the procession, and turn the sign over so it shows ‘Just Married’ as you make your way out of the ceremony. The twine ribbon means they’re easy to carry, and can be hung up at your reception after the ceremony.

It’s super easy to personalise the signs too! If one of your children is carrying the sign you could write ‘Daddy, Here Comes Your Bride’. The personal touch will be beautiful and it’ll make for some beautiful wedding photographs.

Looking for something a little different to the traditional sign? Why not ask your flower girls or page boys to carry a miniature flag instead? This can be a simple DIY job and you can write anything you want on it!

Planning a country barn wedding theme? I love the thought of pulling your flower girls and page boys along in a small trailer and tying a sign on the back. You could make it a like a mini version of a wedding getaway car by adding streamers and balloons to the back of the trailer.

If you’re dreaming of a rustic celebration, consider using hessian or burlap as your sign material. A banner held by two wooden poles will look fab carried by flower girls or page boys. Use hessian elements throughout the rest of your wedding day so that everything looks beautifully coordinated.

I love throwing confetti at weddings and I think it’s one of the most exciting parts of the day.

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…

Wonderful Ideas For Personalising Wedding Bouquets

Wedding bouquets are not only a statement accessory for brides, they’re a long-standing tradition. You want your blooms to fit in with your wedding style, dress and most importantly: your personality. Brides can often find it difficult to find a bouquet design that reflects their individual style. Personalising wedding bouquets is a simple way of making your flowers unique. We’ve put together a few ideas to help inspire you…

Antique Brooches

Personalising wedding bouquets is as simple as adding an antique brooch. If you have a favourite brooch that means a lot to you or a family member, why not add it into your bouquet? You could attach it to a pretty piece of fabric wrapped around the stems. A lot of brides who aren’t keen on floral bouquets opt for a brooch bouquet – perfect for a vintage wedding theme!

Something Borrowed

Have you been given a beautiful piece of jewellery that’s gone down through the generations? If you’ve got an inherited string of pearls that doesn’t quite go with your dress, why not add it to your bouquet? Tie around the stems of your bouquet for a meaningful addition that’ll look incredibly elegant.

A Love Note

I love the idea of hiding a little love note from the groom into your bouquet. Something simple yet romantic – you can walk down the aisle towards your new hubby-to-be knowing you’ve got a special secret note in your bouquet. This is such a perfect way of personalising wedding bouquets, and even better as it reflects you as a couple.

Mini Photo Frames

Tiny photo frames are a beautiful way of personalising wedding bouquets. They are particularly special if you’ve lost a loved one and you’ll feel like they are with you every step of the way. Mini photo frames are an incredibly touching gesture and they’ll look beautiful in your bouquet.

Ribbon and Twine

Another way of personalising wedding bouquets is by wrapping some pretty ribbon or rustic twine around the stems. Have you got a piece of material from something that means a lot to you? Your mum’s wedding dress is a fab choice! Make it into a ribbon for a personal touch. Adding twine will make your bouquet completely unique and is perfect for a country wedding.

Personalising Wedding Bouquets

Have you considered including flowers from your own garden in your bouquet? If a close family member enjoys gardening you could ask them to put together something a little extra for your bouquet. They’ll love being asked and will feel so pleased to see you walking down the aisle with a few of their flowers. Plus, you’ll feel so content knowing that you have something special in your wedding bouquet.

Simple And Effective Ways To Use Lanterns At Weddings

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…
