Real Wedding – Wedding Cake Toppers, Cake Flags & Bunting

Cam and Sarah were married at Ettington Park, we just love their mint green and peach colour scheme. After the ceremony they had an afternoon tea party, the tables were piled high with home baked cookies and sweet treats which looked so delicious and we were thrilled to see a few of our wedding cake toppers. They had chosen our sister company, Passion for Flowers for their florals and the reception tables had an eclectic mix of glass bottles in the centre with an abundance of peach and cream blooms.

Wedding Cake Toppers – Cupcake flags from washi tape

Cam and Sarah made their own little flags for the sweet treats on their dessert table. These flags are made from our decorative washi tape and canape flags, find out how to make the cupcake flags here. Dotted in and around the home made paper flags were a few of our rustic flags tied with twine. We love the selection of sweet treats on offer.

They hung hessian just married bunting from the front of the dessert table for an extra touch.

Wedding Cake Toppers – Mini Bunting

Their wedding cake was a stack of miniature cakes, the top tier had a slightly larger cake for cutting. We think the the mr and mrs cake topper bunting looks fab with peach roses. mr and mrs bunting wedding cake topper mr and mrs cake topper bunting peach mint green wedding cake

Wedding Table Decorations

The room was filled with white paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, what an impact as guests enter the room! Then table decorations were quite simple with an eclectic mix of glass bottles, vases and jars. They used a few of our larger sweetie jars as vases which work really well for this look. Scattered around the venue on bookshelves and window sills were more floral decorations, flowers in jam jars wrapped in hessian and little succulents in jam jars. Extra little touches included our let the love grow stickers.

Ideas For Using Wedding Bunting

Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we love it when bunting is used at weddings. Bunting instantly adds that Spring / Summer feel to any wedding and depending on which style of bunting you choose can add a summer fete, vintage or rustic feel to the day. Bunting is one of our more popular sellers so we have used this post as an inspiration page showing ways it could be used at your wedding.

Hang wedding bunting from the ceiling to create instant impact

One of the easiest ways of creating impact when you enter a venue is by stringing bunting from the ceiling. Hanging wedding bunting from marquees and rustic barns works particularly well as they often have poles or beams to hang from.

Hang wedding bunting outside from trees

As guests drive up to the entrance of your reception venue imagine them driving past bunting swaying in the wind, hanging from the trees. Bunting hanging in any outdoor space always looks beautiful at wedding receptions.

Use Bunting To Make Signs

Get crafty and make your own bunting, cut out pieces of fabric. You choose the colour and style, it could be floral or for a more rustic look perhaps hessian. In large alphabet stamps, marker pen or spray paint write letters on each bunting flag to create your sign. This could be the date of your wedding – a photo of you holding this would make a cute Save The Date card. Hang JUST MARRIED bunting from the back of your car, create a sign for your candy buffet or even a THANK YOU sign.
