Your “happily ever after” starts with your wedding day. This is why you have to use all your strength, time, energy and money to make this beginning a memorable one and worthy of your big enthusiasm. There are many things one can do for her own wedding. Brides are usually the ones who like to get involved in the process of decorating their wedding site.
The internet is full of inedited ideas for both ceremony and reception decoration. And this is why you need more time to search and find the best theme, the best colors, the best music, the best lighting and the best decoration. It’s never easy to make all these choices, and to make them wisely! And this is because of the tones of ideas and styles proposed by our wedding designers! It’s obvious that you must narrow your options somehow. You can simplify things by taking into consideration your wedding locale and season.
Start with deciding on a theme based on the tonality of the season and specific of the venue. For instance, if you’re having a wedding in the country, opt for the rustic, western or eco-friendly style. If you’re outdoors, on an open field, you can follow the bohemian or the green style. The contrary, if you’re in an extravagant restaurant, you can go glam and glitzy-like! Look for versatility in everything you do. It’s more affordable for instance to pick a certain type of table decoration that can be used both as a wedding furniture and as guest favors.
If you place mini flower pots or other motifs on the tables, you can use them as part of the décor and then offer them as wedding souvenirs at the end of the party. You can do the same thing with desserts. Use mini cakes, cupcakes or other cookies and treats in different colors to beautify the tables and then allow your guests to take them home when the reception is over. This is a great way to mix both the functional and the decorative style. The results are always great and ideal for both economical and wealthy couples who want something more original and chic for their wedding.
Easy wedding reception decorations consist in seasonal flowers and plants, thrift store furniture and vases, vintage finds and homemade sweet treats. You can create a more inviting ambiance at your wedding by adding fabric curtains, hanging decorative items, festive garlands, balloons and other unique and expressive stuff. Focus on a bold and beautiful color-scheme and don’t forget to add a shape to your reception. Arrange the tables in a way so that your guests can see each other and communicate easily. Use patterned cloths and covers for the tables and chairs
Those who are feeling a little more modern and want a unique wedding can use the theme we’re proposing you today: the green theme. This style is for those who love the beauty of the nature and wish to insert it in their wedding. There is nothing more appropriate for the contemporary couple than the organic style. You don’t have to be a big fan of the ecology to like the unique decorations and ideas promoted by designers for green themed weddings.
If you can’t imagine how a wedding like this would look like, follow these ideas. Among our favorite decorative elements that fit a green wedding are succulents. These phenomenal plants are just too amazing to be overlooked. They are simply irresistible, especially when inserted in bridal bouquets, wedding cakes, boutonnieres and reception tables. Instead of using traditional flowers for your décor, you can focus on succulents.
We love all the floral designs based on these plants promoted today by our wedding stylists. These arrangements are incredibly versatile and refreshing for a classic wedding. Why go standard and predictable when you have so many other options to consider? Succulents are great for organic wedding celebrations in general. They have a whimsical appeal that can stir the interest of even the most bored or uninspired bride! We like their versatile appearance and they way they can stand alone in a wedding arrangement.
If at the beginning they were used only as plant accents to bigger flower bouquets, nowadays they are used alone in chic and trendy bridal arrangements. You can find succulents in amazing shades of green and purple. These plants are not the most appropriate selections for a wedding, one could say. Come to think about it, no one really thinks of a wedding in this manner. But now that the nature-inspired style is so popular, these plants seem to fit wonderfully! When you look at succulent wedding decorations you find these plants divine and extremely adequate for a green wedding!
These are water retaining plants that look more spectacular then anyone can imagine. Check out these pictures and browse for inspiration. These natural beauties can be incorporated in a myriad of ways in a wedding. The most traditional way is through wedding bouquets and boutonnieres. You can also include them in your table centerpieces, invitations, cake and personal attire. You can place succulents in small pots and utilize them as seating cards and then as wedding guest favors.
We like the way succulents look like when used in bridal shoes and hair. The greatest thing about these plants is that you can plant them after the wedding in your garden and keep them as unique and memorable souvenirs of your special day!
One of the biggest wedding trends our couples can consider or get inspired from for their D-day is the rustic style. This amazing approach on the traditional wedding is fresher and contemporary. It is a real pleasure to plan and experience a rustic wedding in the countryside. This theme is versatile and very easy to incorporate or adapt to fit a modern wedding. We are huge fans of this style and we are constantly impressed by the new wedding projects released by our designers on this subject.
The rural side is one of the most popular and sought-after locations for getting married among our newlyweds. They like the idea of going simple, cheerful and fun. These types of affairs are more relaxed and enjoyable than traditional formal weddings in the city. You can now escape all the irrelevant things that conservative couples are called to consider when planning a conventional wedding. If your family doesn’t have any tradition or special custom they want you to follow, you can just go away and plan a unique personalized wedding.
Even if you are called to honor a wedding family tradition you can say “no” and do it your way. This day is founded on your big “I do”, don’t forget that! This means that this is your day and you are the only one who can decide what type of wedding you should plan and what style to approach. Countryside weddings are growing in popularity because they are so cozy and diverting! You can find many ways to entertain your guests and keep them occupied with interesting things to watch and do. It’s not obligatory for your country nuptial to be simple and small.
You can do it in an intimate and romantic way, but you can always go for the big style. No one stops you from planning an extravagant wedding in a barn or at a farmhouse. There are many other locations and big spaces that can allow you to go for an ample and more extravagant reception. If you like the idea of being romantic on your special day, choose a vineyard. Or, if you prefer something more natural and carefree, choose an open meadow or field.
Mountain top weddings are very trendy and they can suit perfectly well the rustic style and the adventurous couples. So, it’s not mandatory either to go in the countryside to adopt the rustic style. You can go western, bohemian or modern. There are no restrictions at this point. You can always choose a more diversified theme by combining different styles, like the rustic, the boho-chic, the glamorous and the organic. Focus on the specific of your wedding venue and get inspired from the vibrancy of the season.
We don’t know about you, but we love modern weddings because they are simple, chic and dainty. There is nothing irrelevant here to accuse. The contrary, everything looks unified and well-integrated within this superb theme. Modern means geometry and we are excited to see a unique wedding project based on this concept. It may seem easy to plan a modern wedding because these arrangements look simple. In fact, it’s just as difficult to find the right simple details for a simple wedding as it is for a sophisticated event.
The truth is that modern weddings based on simple and chic accents require even more thought and precaution. You can’t afford to fail, especially when you’re playing with such bold yet minimal decorations. This amazing wedding is signed by Lindye Galloway Events and it is highly inspiring, especially the table centerpieces. This wedding focuses on color and shapes and it is one of the most impressive we’ve seen lately in our wedding planner’s portfolios.
The tablescape and the décor are filled with bright hues and unique forms. This project can stir the imagination of those who are more on the funky side and captivate the attention of those who want to go for an “outside the box wedding”. This couple wanted to go purely modern, without any trace of old or classic style. They picked wooden tables and benches for the reception. The runner features a very eye-catchy pattern in yellow and orange. These two colors are bright, juicy and ideal for a cheerful party. The white rectangles on the tables are actually flower vases! Can you believe this trend?
These are amazing accents to a fresh contemporary wedding reception. The rectangle bases lining the center attract the eyes and add more shape and whimsicality to the overall décor. These vases are so great because they have holes everywhere. So this designer thought that it would be more clever and ingenious to put the flowers in the rectangle holes and not in the vases’ mouths.
This is by far our favorite detail of the entire wedding. The tables feature different fresh treats based on lemon, seared sea scallops, lemongrass wasabi, pineapples, tropical mango soup, honey drizzle and mint and other different light and juicy food for a summer wedding. The cake looks spectacular as it features a single white clean tier, a bunch of wildflowers on top and a hexagonal orange accent.
This wedding designer managed to create a strikingly beautiful and original event by using her own imagination and sense of creativity alone. The idea of playing with shapes and vivid hues is brilliant. The unique forms used here add more visual interest, more structure and dimension to the wedding. So, are you ready to go modern?
Inspiration is the key to planning a unique wedding nowadays. And on our website you guys can find lots of special themes and styles to approach or consider for your wedding. The subject we’re proposing you today can also be of a great interest for those who are thinking of taking the seasonal casual path. Planning a beautiful wedding outside the doors is a very flattering experience for the modern couple. There is nothing more recreating than enjoying a cozy wedding day in the middle of the nature.
There are so many things to pull inspiration from when you’re outdoors! The Mother Nature is the first and only source of inspiration for outdoors weddings. Your can o organic or eco-friendly, handmade, rustic, crafty, seasonal, bohemian-inspired, vintage, exotic, western, botanical, etc. There are many themes to approach when planning an alfresco event. These ideas can help you get creative and plan an unforgettable wedding for you and your guests. Putting together the perfect setting for your wedding is surely an exciting experience, especially for those who are planning on using their own hands!
All you need is a wide imagination and the sky as the limit to your vision! You don’t need to hire a professional wedding planner and spend half of your money on something you can do yourself! But if you are not skilled at all and completely out of inspiration, don’t get involved in a DIY project you won’t be able to complete. Ask someone who is handier with these sorts of things to do it for you. There are also many brides and grooms who have the ideas but don’t have the skills to implement the theme they want.
It’s great to dream up a unique wedding and hand the project to someone who can make your dream a beautiful reality. It’s always difficult though to focus on a single theme. The palette of wedding styles is so wide and generous that you don’t even know what to consider and what to eliminate. Think of your favorite things and try to focus on the formality, venue, season and amplitude of your wedding when making the final selection. There are many fun and versatile ideas you can give in, but not all match your style and budget.
We like the simple decorations based on cheap crafty supplies incorporated cleverly into the setting. A little bit of ingenuity and nonchalance won’t hurt at all! You can add more uniqueness to your wedding day by choosing a special venue, like a vineyard, mountain cliff, exotic coast or wild forest. Choose a unique setting for the reception, like a tent. Play with seasonal flowers, fruits, plants and vegetables and use them as centerpieces, favors and menu ideas.
If you’re on a budget and you’re seeking for beautiful inspiration for a unique wedding, let us tell that you’ve come to the right place! We have just the thing for you: a shabby elegant romantic wedding project based on a lot of pretty DIY details. We are among the biggest fans of the DIY wedding themes mixed with nature-inspired items. The fusion between glamorous, organic and crafty is sensational! And this shoot proves it.
Check out these pictures and look for cues and clues for your own wedding. It won’t be that hard to find unique tips that you can apply for your own big day. This shoot is from Three Apples Events and it is one of the most inspiring projects for an outdoors wedding. Those of you who are flattered by the idea of spending the wedding day outside the doors will surely find this concept lovely and easy to achieve. You can do this in so many ways! All you need is a little bit of extra time, energy and imagination.
Use your creativity to design your own wedding setting according to your own vision. Think of the things that you’ve always wanted in your wedding. Don’t worry if they come from different fields or categories. Nowadays you can find clever ways to glue together two or even three different styles, like in this case. We can find here elements of glamour and glitz, elements of nature and elements of artificial decoration. The DIY couple usually feels highly challenged by a proposal like this.
The tablescape decorations created for this setting are amazing and very charming. The couple wanted something romantic, dainty and stylish with a whimsical feel. They thought of creating a tea party brunch based on all things elegant and romantic. The dreamy air, the sweet sense of love and the vintage finds incorporated here create a unique inviting atmosphere for the newlyweds and their guests. This party seems to be a very welcoming one especially for close friends and family members.
You can adopt this style for a simple, intimate or private wedding in your own home or backyard! You can pick any type of location for your party. With these special ingredients you can transform any plain ordinary space into a magical field! The pink tablecloth looks more appealing due to the pretty colored ribbons the bride placed in a cross design.
The tea service set is vintage and it is from Antiquaria. It fits perfectly well the forest-like setting. The idea of hanging tea cups from trees and create small chandeliers of flowers is brilliant and adds an air of sophistication to the dinner tables. The spray garden roses are combined with poppy pods, moss and eucalyptus seeds.
Love is always in trend, so you should not hesitate to go romantic on your wedding day. After all, this is what weddings are all about, don’t you think? The wedding trends and tendencies are constantly changing, that’s true. But some things always stay the same, like love & romance. These two qualities are the fundamental aspects of a wedding and marriage. The romantic factor is therefore vital in a wedding day, so try to stay close to this style when planning your wedding.
Brides and grooms of today are not less in love than other couples from the past as many of might think. Although modern times seem colder, our newlyweds are just focused more on the things they want. It’s not inappropriate to go for a wedding style that reflects your personality as a couple or as individuals.
The idea of planning your own wedding is also pretty awesome. And we think that this freedom of choice is a great step forward for the fashion world. Our designers are interested in motivating conventional brides and grooms to let go of their old preconceptions and embrace a new style.
The romantic style promoted today is not the same with the one that was popular a few years ago. But it surely reflects some of the tendencies that were in vogue a few centuries ago. The world of fashion is changing but in most cases it hits the great styles promoted in the old eras. We wanted to say that the type of romanticism proposed today in weddings is not always juicy and sumptuous. In some cases it is whimsical and dark, while in other cases it is rather sensual and bold.
We are also excited about the artistic, rustic and natural type of romance featured in modern wedding projects. The beautiful shoot we’re sharing today is based on two fabulous romantic colors: red and pink. We don’t know how many of you have ever thought of these tones in this mix, but we personally are very impressed by the effects. We know that these hues seem inopportune at a first sight, but when we look close we see that they have the power to update the traditional romantic style and make it feel more modern and fresh.
With these two tones in your wedding you can be sure that love with always be in the air. This romantic inspirational shoot is from Alea Lovely. The beautiful flower design is provided by Amy Cason Victorian Gardens and the pretty short flower dress worn by this bride is from the Ivy and Aster. We love the pops of red and the pretty pastel pinks. The red and pink wedding ideas featured here are simply delicious!
The beautiful red themed wedding we’re sharing today is not a usual one. The contrary, this project is very quirky. It is based on the woodland beauty and this is where all the whimsy elements of décor. The venue is fabulous and this also added to the beauty and originality of this reception. This couple chose to get married in The Bungalow and create an unforgettable outdoors party for their families and friends.
The idea of mixing the rustic, the whimsy, the natural and the vintage styles for the same recipe is brilliant. We don’t know about you, but we are very impressed by the results. Take these pictures and extract inspiration for you’re a similar wedding. You can adopt the woodsy style for your own party, especially if you picked an outdoors venue. It doesn’t matter whether you’re going in the woods or in your own backyard! The location is essential when it comes to these types of events, but less important when it comes to applying a theme like this one.
The fusion between red and the woodland style is fascinating! We can’t get over this wedding because it is charming and mysteriously romantic. The bride here is very pretty and elegant, but in a bohemian way. We enjoy very much the flower wreath that she wears on her head and the whimsical brown floral sash she wears around her waist. Her lace gown is signed by Gateway Bridal and the floral design for her hair and decor is from Branches Event Floral.
This terrific wedding project was thought and implemented by Branches Event Floral & Polka Dots & Daisies for a very unique and creative couple. If you want an original wedding yourself, don’t settle for less. Go for a similar unique theme that can help you create a memorable day for you and your friends. We love the magnificent cake created by Cake-A-Licious exclusively for this wedding reception. The other desserts in this party were designed by the same brand. The idea of using mushrooms as motifs for the entire setting is awesome! The cake itself is a big mushroom that fits perfectly well into a woodland themed wedding.
The combination between the eco-friendly style and the whimsical natural elements of décor is killingly beautiful. We enjoy very much the fresh greenery and ferns and the contrast they make on the pieces of wood and trees incorporated in the décor. The red luscious apples make this setting look like a scene from the Snow White story. The bride herself looks like a fairytale-bride! We can also observe many vintage finds in this shoot. Apple cider in old bottles, antique kettles and old-fashion closets look spectacular outdoors. The mushroom-chairs are very creative!
Summer months are here and we are so exited about the new coming brides! We are enthusiastic about their own enthusiasm, seeing all the gorgeous ideas and modern trends available for different types of weddings. Those who are already married and are nowadays participating at a wedding are also very thrilled about the current trends and they wish they could do their wedding again to use all the beautiful things promoted today. But the wedding day is just one, for those who are lucky. This is why you have to make everything in your power to be the perfect day of your life.
The choices are numberless, as we said, and this is why we suggest you make your wedding decisions with more precaution. Everything must match everything and for that you have to select the most adequate colors, flowers and accessories for the décor. Flowers are still an essential part of a wedding ceremony and reception. You can go for a contemporary non-floral wedding, but it’s always cleverer to use your favorite blooms and then arrange and decorate them the way you like! No one said that you can’t use both natural blooms & crafty or sparkling accessories!
The theme we’re proposing you today is based on yellow flowers. Yellow is the color of vividness, cheerfulness and energy and it is ideal for a summer time wedding. Now, it depends on the exact type of yellow you’re planning on using. This color is versatile and the soft buttery shades can fit a spring affair, while the richer golden hues can make a great selection for a fall wedding. You can combine yellow with green and create an aestival mix. Green and yellow form a highly complementary pair that can suit different types of outdoors celebrations. But if you’re planning a rather whimsical wedding, combine yellow with violet or plum.
On the other hand, if you’re having a rainbow or exotic wedding décor, you can focus on yellow, orange, red and pink. These are the brightest colors ever that can fit a truly sophisticated informal wedding. Yellow is the color of the sun and this is why its vibe is so enchanting and adequate for a wedding. Nothing can fit better the dynamism and joy of a wedding than the yellow theme. We personally like the way yellow looks alone in a wedding décor. Of course, you can mix it with white, ivory, cream, beige, nude or ecru to create a more elegant and classy effect that can suit an antique wedding. Yellow also looks charming when combined with brown or gray. Billy Balls (craspedia), garden roses, ranunculuses, sunflowers, zinnias, poppies, narcissuses, gladiolas, tulips, gerbera and freesias are just a few examples of fresh yellow blooms.
Are you feeling lucky enough to find a unique color for your beach wedding? You should do that because you’ve come to the right place. We have a wonderful proposal for you today, and that is the coral theme. This nuance is absolutely irresistible and we can hardly take our eyes of these amazing decorations and items. Check out these inspirational boards and see what you can steal or create for your own wedding based on this theme. Coral is the warmest sister of the classic pink and the most delicious.
There is something so sweet and fluffy about coral that makes us think only of table desserts and cakes! We have to admit that the most beautiful, savory and appealing cakes and wedding sweets we’ve seen so far are those based on a coral shade. As you guys can see, the color plays an essential role in a wedding, especially when the wedding takes place outdoors. The season, the venue and the specific of the region are great sources of inspiration for those who are having a beach or island wedding reception.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate a seaside wedding than through a coral theme. You can use it alone or add another hue for a more unique contrast. Coral looks fabulous next to other pastel shades, like mint, violet, teal, turquoise, buttery yellow, blush, peach or powder blue. These are the cutest combinations that you can think of for a warm, cozy and romantic wedding at the beach. But if you prefer something more dramatic and exotic, combine coral with hues like tangerine, navy blue, plum, chocolate brown or bronze. Coral and gold form a sensual mix for a luxurious wedding.
Glamorous brides will surely love this color combo. We also recommend you to focus on a sand and coral color combination if you want to enhance and emphasize the beauty and uniqueness of the coral shade. The beige, the ivory, the cream, the nude and the other neutral hues will make the coral nuance pop even more beautifully! If you can’t trust our suggestions, take a look at these amazing photos!
You will see just how refined and fun these mixes are after all! We recommend the coral theme for both outdoors and indoors weddings. Besides this, you can incorporate it even in a fall season wedding. From spring to autumn, this theme is perfectly recommendable. Besides the fact that coral is so sweet, fresh and juicy, we can see that it is also very chic and dainty. Brides would look fabulous in a white dress accented with a coral motif or sash. Or, you can just pick this color for your flower bouquet.
