Having sorted out most of the major decisions in relation to my wedding next year, including the venue, caterers, photographer and cake, I’m now starting to think of ideas of how to prettify the venue to make it look as beautiful as possible. Having already chosen pink bridesmaid dresses, I thought it would be a good idea to extend the colour scheme to include other pastel shades such as baby blue and lilac, and I managed to find lots of lovely goodies that will fit in perfectly.
I managed to pick up three woven baskets in my chosen hues, and will probably use these during the ceremony and reception to hold homemade confetti, maybe cards from our guests and perhaps extra goodies for our guests. I’m in the process of making my own confetti using flowers that are just about to wilt; you dry them out as quickly as possible and they keep their vibrant colour beautifully.
As well as creating some of my own DIY projects, I have also bought a few extra ready-made details to hang. I plan on painting various sized mason jars using chalk paint, to fill with flowers and use as centrepieces on the round tables. In the run up to the big day, I will be posting how-to guides for anything I make so keep checking back.
