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.

If you have a number of flower girls and page boys, why not make a series of signs? This is a really fun idea that will get your guests chuckling.
