Wedding Inspiration; Decor

Wednesday, 27 May 2015


Our wedding is fast approaching and my mind is turning to decor. Since we are having an autumn wedding, I am drawing heavily on natural aspects and warm, rich colours. I really like the idea of decorative pumpkins in an array of colours and sizes to keep things interesting and different. There is an old fireplace in our venue and I was really inspired by this pumpkin 'fire' that I found on pinterest. I think something like this would look amazing!
I really enjoy the idea of low lighting, its very romantic and atmospheric and I have already begun buying electric tealights - as our venue does not permit naked flames indoors. I would love to create something like this decorative 'apple bobbing' station - but it will have to stay outside so that I can use floating candles in it.
As another natutal aspect, I love the idea of these pinecone garlands. I dont want to give away too much info, but the bridesmaids' bouquets include pinecones, so think this would be a nice touch!

As a fun touch, I think this natural wood over-sized photo frame would be brilliant! It will keep guests entertained, can be placed in or outdoors (depending on the weather) and the photos will make wondeful keeepsakes.
These lanterns are a beautiful way to direct guests to the reception venue. I think they would look perfect along the pavement and up to the door of the venue - especially as night falls and the candles illuminate the beautiful oranges of the pumpkins!
I think these acorn candle displays are so cute. They would look wonderful dotted around the place and keep in with the rustic, natural theme!
I think the idea of remembering loved ones who are no longer with us is beautiful. They may not be present at the wedding in body, but they will be there in spirit and in our hearts,  I will certainly be having a memorial candle somewhere at both the ceremony and the reception.
This milk churn decorated with seasonal flowers and plants is gorgeous. It is something a little different than floral centrepieces like we see at every other wedding.
Keeping things natural is important at our wedding, and this bark and candle display is something i can't do without. I think it will be so pretty on tables at the reception.

I am really enjoying wedding planning so far and cant wait to see our plans take shape!
