We’re sharing some inspiration for pretty pew ends today, using a dreamy combination of linen runners, flowers and lanterns. If this sounds like heaven to you, we suggest you keep reading…
Pretty Pew Ends Using Linen Runners, Flowers & Lanterns
Decorating the ends of your pews helps to add colour, interest and personality to your ceremony space. Featured on Style Me Pretty, we just adored how this couple opted to decorate their pew ends. If you want something a little different to a traditional bunch of posies tied to the end, we think you’ll fall in love with this gorgeous combination of rustic elegance…
Opt for linen runners in shades that fit in with your chosen wedding theme or colour scheme. If you’re planning a delightful pastel colour combination, you could use varying hues of blush pink, baby blue and pale mint. Planning a minimalist wedding? Then grey linen runners will look so chic. Simply place a handful of pretty blooms against the pew end and secure with a linen runner. There are a number of different ways you can tie the linen runners to the pew ends, and you can have some fun finding your favourite style. To add a fabulous finishing touch, just add one or two glowing lanterns along the aisle for a dash of romance.
We recommend using blooms that take inspiration from your wedding bouquet. It will help to tie your wedding theme together and will make sure it looks coordinated.
The confetti moment is one of my favourite parts of a wedding day and it makes for a truly beautiful photograph. But are you looking for something completely unique? Then keep reading and discover our five favourite Winter wedding confetti ideas that are perfect for this season.
When I think of Winter I immediately think of snowflakes, so they’re a fab choice for your Winter wedding confetti. Our white flakes will look stunning in your wedding photographs, and they create the illusion of snowflakes or snow being thrown over you. They’ll look particularly striking if you’ve created a Winter wonderland wedding theme using white, grey and icy blue as your colour scheme.
If you’re looking for a seriously unique confetti idea that your guests won’t have seen before, consider using leaves. Autumn and Winter are all about golden leaves and they look incredible being thrown after the ceremony. Creating leaf confetti can be an easy DIY job for you and your partner. Simply source leaves and use a heart shaped hole punch to cut out shapes in the leaves. Put in cute confetti holders to hand out to your guests after the ceremony. Alternatively, consider using whole leaves to throw. This will look the most effective in your photographs.
Why not use handfuls of pretty metallic glitter? This is the perfect choice if you’re planning an ultra glam Winter celebration with lots of metallic details. Gold or silver glitter confetti will twinkle in your wedding photographs. Star shapes will make your confetti shot look magical!
Planning a Christmas wedding theme? Then tinsel is a wedding confetti must-have! Strands of sparkly tinsel will be a fab alternative to traditional wedding confetti, and it’ll look beautiful in your wedding photographs. Opt for tinsel garlands to decorate your wedding venue and wedding chairs, so that your theme ties in together completely.
You don’t just have to use confetti at your Winter wedding. If you’re having your ceremony in the late afternoon or evening, why not use sparklers instead? Offer each guest a sparkler and light them as you leave your ceremony. Your guests can create an archway and wave the sparklers over you as you walk through it. Sparklers work beautifully as wedding confetti if your ceremony takes place when it’s dark.
This week our wedding decoration of the week is our Here Comes The Bride Wooden Sign. This sign is a lovely gift for your ring bearer or flower girl, ask them to carry it down the aisle as they walk down in front of you. They’ll feel really important having a job to do and the photos will look so cute.
Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we just love a “here comes the bride sign”. Ask your ring bearer or flower girl to carry this sign as they walk down the aisle in front of the bride. Your guests and groom will love it, and the photos will be adorable.
You could always keep this a secret from the groom, and wait to see the look on his face as he sees it for the first time.
The sign is made from MDF with a rustic wood look.
The sign reads Here Comes with Bride in white calligraphy. For extra decoration the sign has small pearl effect beads and linen flowers.
Winter is a beautiful time of year to tie the knot and it’s easy to create a magical wedding day. Take a look at our Winter wedding ceremony ideas to find out how you can pull off an unforgettable wedding with the wow factor.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are so many adorable signs for flower girls and page boys, and it’ll be a lovely surprise for your wedding guests.
