Marriage is the moment of a very eagerly awaited by the bride and groom, not only to prepare the material and spirit, preparing a more trivial things and the detail is an activity that can be fun, but can also become a very real headache. Here are some simple ideas to complement your wedding decor.
Food as Wedding Favors. Ripe fruits symbolize abundance and fertility – and make delicious favors. Tomatoes look beautiful and enticing in this rustic Italian display.
Birds and Blossoms Wedding Centerpiece. Nature provides such wonderful motifs for weddings. A fern frond can be a lovely symbol for an invitation, the shades of a favorite bloom can inform the color palette, and almost any natural detail – berries, flowers, even the swirling pattern of wood grain – can decorate a cake. There are always fresh flowers at weddings, of course, but blossoms are surprising (and timeless) when they’re made of paper or fabric. And they are perfectly paired with little birds, longstanding symbols of love.
Wedding Topiary Banner. A personalized banner creates a stately ceremony or reception decoration when it’s hung from greenery set on a mantel or tall table.
Wedding Guest Note Tree. Let guests’ well-wishes take flight on paper doves. These birds are traditional symbols of love, happiness, and harmony. Anchor bare branches (these are manzanita) in a large, sturdy vessel filled with stones or gravel. Use wire to secure nests, available from craft stores, to branches. Set dove cards — available precut — in a dish. Place pencils alongside your tree with a sign asking guests to inscribe a card and to place it in a nest.
