When it comes to styling your all important 'I Do' we've put together a few ideas to consider and a few of our favourite styled ceremony setups to kick start your planning and inspiration...
Arbors – With a range of arbors these days – your wedding style and venue will determine whether you choose a rustic drift wood arbour, a more traditional classic hardwood arbor or even a sophisticated lattice screen arbor. Floral options for your dress arbor can range from full cascading blooms which creates a stunning vision to a more understated colourful statement on one corner.
Seating – Select from a range of seating styles such as matching chairs to more informal garden wedding style seating. Consider how many older guests you have coming and the length of your ceremony - will they need chair backs for comfort. It’s also possible to mix and match chairs and benches for a more informal look.
Decoration – seating decoration can vary from a floral bouquet at the end of each row (or every second row of chairs). For a more rustic, country charm style consider tying floral bouquets to the end chairs with raw jute twine or shepherd's hooks. For a more classic look, floral garlands along the ground the length of the chair rows creates a stunning natural ‘aisle’ for the bride to walk down.
Rugs & Aisle Runners – another option to create an aisle are carpet runners. The cow hide is a perfect statement runner which will add a touch of glamour to your overall look. If you’re after a more relaxed vibe, a Moroccan runner give the perfect shabby chic feel to any wedding. If you are wanting to create a warm comforting space look at layering afghan rugs bringing home away from home to your ceremony.
Signing Chairs – signing your wedding certificate deserves to be done in style. For a sophisticated statement style consider chairs the White Peacock Signing chairs or for a more relaxed boho look the Natural Peacock chairs are a great choice. For the classic look, the White Colonial high back chairs are a great choice. Your signing chairs can then be reused at your reception feast. Add some individual Mr & Mrs signs for some more detail.
Signing Table – a range of signing tables is available whether you are after the more classic garden style or chic look. Consider the size of the signing table, do you want any additional floral decoration on it such or will you simply display your bridal bouquet on the table. As with the signing chairs, the signing table can be reused as the cake table later. See below for some options.
