Keys {Wedding Decoration Inspiration #ww}

Have you thought of using keys are part of your wedding decorations? Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we think they look beautiful. Use antique keys, or keys which have a special meaning to you, maybe they open a door to a special place or open an old family jewellery box.

If you are going to use keys as part of your wedding decoration they could be incorporated into your grooms button holes. If you have a special key use this for your groom, and other antique looking keys for the rest of your male bridal party.

Hang keys from branches planted in a pot or bucket and make your own wedding table decorations, they would make lovely wedding centrepeices, alternatively use these mini trees as wish trees.

Keys also add unique touches to escort cards, if you’ve not come across escort cards before they are similar to table plans. Each guest has an individual escort card with their table number on the back, often guests can choose where they sit on that table. Make your escort cards by tying keys with ribbon to your luggage tags.

What do you think of this idea? Would you use keys in your wedding decorations? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Wooden Bark Centrepieces {Wedding Decoration Inspiration #ww}

It’s wooden bark wedding decoration inspiration on the blog today. The wooden bark table decorations, lanterns and tea light holders are very popular at The Wedding of my Dreams…. But how do you style them at your wedding? We have put together some inspiration on how to style these rustic bark decorations at your wedding reception.  Images have been sourced from Green Wedding Shoes, photography by Paco & Betty

Be creative! This couple have given thought to all those little details, if you’re putting a rustic/wooden slant on your wedding decor then why not follow it through to your menus too. Love this wedding menu on a wooden chopping board. DIY wedding table plan wooden chopping board

For the wedding table decorations… Use our larger bark lanterns as vases they have a glass container inside to hold water and look great filled with rustic flowers. Position wooden bark tea light holders around the table for a warm glow and you could even cut some small wooden logs to hold the table numbers.

The wooden bark decorations can be carried through to your candy buffet or dessert table. Continue the rustic style by adding a sheet of hessian over the table linen then scatter wooden bark lanterns and decorations, jam jars tied with twine around a delicious selection of cakes and sweets and let your guests enjoy.

Wooden Crates, Vintage Bottles and Jugs Galore ~ Wedding Shoot with Bijoux Bride

Earlier this year we were contacted by Louise from Bijoux Bride to help style a shoot she was working on. The theme of her shoot was a Secret Garden, so our country garden wedding decorations and rustic wedding decorations were ideal for this. We both went down to The Medicine Garden, Cobham on a lovely summers afternoon to meet Louise and help her set up for the wedding shoot. Read Bijoux Bride blog part one and part two to see the whole shoot. wedding table decorations jugs bottles for shoot

Getting our wedding decorations ready for the shoot. We took along a range of wedding decorations including silver jugs, silver buckets, cream jugs, vintage bottles, candy jars, tea light holders, LOVE blocks and a table plan.

Photographer Liesl Cheney captured the whole day wonderfully. ivory cotton bunting vintage glass bottles wedding decorations wooden crates wedding decorations

Our rustic wooden crates were used as a shelving backdrop, ivory bunting was draped from the old brick walls, country style loose flowers were displayed in our buckets, jugs and bottles. cream jug wedding centrepiece

Wooden crates have so many uses, they make great shelving, here they have been used as tables for jugs to sit on, you could add some pretty cream fabric or lace to the crates too. These cream jugs would make lovely table decorations for a country style wedding with some tea light holders to finish off the country garden wedding look.  wooden crates stacked up wedding decorations vintage glass bottles wedding decorations

I love the way the wooden crates can just be stacked up in a random pile to make shelves and surfaces at different heights. Use this at your outdoor rustic wedding to display extra floral displays, set up for a sweetie buffet, or as an area for guests to sign your guest book.

Vintage glass bottles look great with simple single stem flowers, here they have blue and white statice for a country look but you could also use rose heads. rustic DIY wedding table plan

If you have chosen a country or rustic theme for your wedding decor then you should decide on a table plan which incorporates this theme. We love this table plan with flower pots, fill each bucket with a cluster of flowers then add a luggage tag to each flower pot with your guests names on, one luggage tag per table.

Thanks so much to Bijoux Bride and Liesl Cheney for involving us in this wedding shoot. We loved the results so much we have used one of the images on our front cover of our new brochure. If you would like one of our brochures please get in touch. the wedding of my dreams mail order brochure

Vintage Wooden Crates Apple Boxes {Wedding Decorations We LOVE}

Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we love everything vintage and rustic, since the first time we saw old fruit crates being used in wedding styling we fell in love with them. These vintage wooden crates, bushel crates as they are officially called were originally used for collecting apples and pears. The Wedding of my Dreams have a limited collection of these rustic wooden fruit crates available to buy online sourced from farms around the country.

We love how many ways there are to use vintage wooden crates when styling your wedding.

Use rustic wooden crates filled with colourful fruit, lemons are perfect if you are adding a hint of yellow to your wedding, yellow is looking to be right on trend this year. Or use the crates on their side to act as shelving.

Why not fill the wooden crates with moss and use as a display for for your escort cards.

My all time favourite is using wooden crates for your dessert tables, whether they can be incorporated in to your wedding cake display, or wedding sweetie buffets.
