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.

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…
