Summer Wedding Pew Ends

When it comes to wedding planning, often the seemingly smallest details end up making the biggest impact in terms of décor.

Pew ends are a case in point. In the grand scheme of things, they aren’t the biggest item to consider or indeed would not be high on your agenda of priorities, however, it’s amazing how these little additions can completely transform the look of your church or ceremony venue.

And don’t be put off by the word pew. If you’re not getting married in a church or even indoors, that doesn’t mean you can’t have pew ends. Think of mason jars or pompoms hanging from chairs. Or why not go for petals, lanterns or other touches on the ground next to the chairs closest to the aisle?

There is no limit to how creative you can get with your pew ends, so don’t be afraid to have a little fun with them. And while traditional flowers can be a little pricey, some of these more modern alternatives are very budget friendly.

Here’s some fresh suggestions for some summer style pew ends that would look great for an indoor or outdoor ‘I do’ and if you’d like help planning that ‘I do’ or want to chat about your wedding décor then please get in touch with me today.

 

Fans/Pompoms

These are a very popular trend and are a nice departure from the more traditional route of florals and can be ideal if you’re watching your budget. Think about mixing pastels with bursts of vivid colour for a really show stopping look. Have several mini fans or pompoms hanging together or go for one giant one on each aisle either.

 

Quotes or Photos

Photos are a nice twist on the traditional pew end and can be great way to pay tribute to your families, especially if there are those who are no longer with you. Quotes are a super idea too and again both of these ideas are budget friendly.

Mason Jars

Ah the mason jar, where would we be without you? These are the absolute jack of all trades when it comes to wedding décor. You can use them practically anywhere, but they do work so well for pew ends. Fill them of course with florals, but you can also fill them with tea lights, marbles, sand, shells, petals, the list is endless.

 

On the Ground

Who says your pew ends have to be hanging off the pews? Why not try having some décor on the ground by each pew or row of seats? Lanterns are always a good one, but what about birdcages, garlands, petals and rustic style wooden flower boxes?

 

Something a Little Different

Pew ends are a great opportunity to have a little fun with your décor, so don’t be afraid to think outside the norm. Things like wellies filled with flowers, milk churns, sticks with hearts or pompoms on the top can all look super. If your venue allows it, then how about cones of confetti at the end of each pew?

 

Unusual Wedding Flowers

Flowers are an integral part of any wedding day. They can bring the whole day to life injecting colour and tone in an instant. But while flowers and weddings go hand in hand, that doesn’t mean you have to stick to the script. If you want to get away from the more traditional and embrace unusual wedding flowers ,then now is the perfect time to do it as there is an entire industry of floral creativity waiting to be discovered.

Have fun with flowers and don’t be afraid to make a statement. Think floral walls, hanging florals, floral instillations, floral chandeliers, and much more. Of course fresh flowers are always going to be a pricey investment for your big day, but thankfully there are a whole host of false blooms out there that look so convincing it would be almost impossible to tell the difference.

If you’d like to chat about this or any other aspect of your wedding day décor, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

 

Hanging florals

Make a statement with stunning hanging florals. Think of floral installations suspending from the ceiling over your tables. Upturned parasols filled with flowers can look like something off a movie set. For atmosphere why not have handing tea lights interspersed with flowers or have lanterns strung from the ceiling filled with blooms. And for the DIY lover, then using hula hoops covered with flowers or floral wreaths can work really well too.

 

 

Floral Chandeliers

Who said chandeliers have to be crystal? Add a host of beautiful flowers to chandeliers in your wedding venue and turn something beautiful into something extraordinary.

 

 

Floral Walls

Channel the loved celebrity style trend with an impressive floral wall. You could use these during your ceremony, or at the reception where it can become a real focal point and even an impromptu DIY photobooth for your guests. Don’t be afraid to experiment with a burst of colour, but of course the classic colours of crisp white and lush greens will work with any theme.

 

Staircases, Fireplaces & Garlands

If you’ve got staircases and fireplaces in your venue, then make sure to make the most of them and accent them with some flowers. Whether it be decadent, show stopping garlands or simple wildflowers, it really does have a massive visual impact.

 

Trees

Bring a real senses of the outdoors in with some perfectly placed trees in your venue or ceremony. Think about using them as pew ends, or dotted around the venue to really add some stunning scenery to your day.

Go Vertical With Your Wedding Decor

When most couples consider the decor for their wedding receptions, they rarely look upwards and think about ways to use the vertical space above, as well as just what they can see in their immediate periphery. Maximising vertical space is not only a hot wedding trend at the moment, but it is a really practical way to make the most of your venue and has a stunning visual impact.

Whether your budget is big or small you can still find plenty of ways to make use of the vertical space. For example budget friendly items such as paper lanterns, ribbons, streamers or tea lights can all be used to great effect over tables, dancefloors or as a focal point or backdrop in the room.

If you’d like to chat about this or any other aspect of your wedding day décor, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

Hanging florals
Hanging florals come in all shapes and sizes and can really give your venue the wow factor. But even if you can’t afford to go all out with an impressive or large hanging fresh floral style installation over your tables, you can still channel the trend by adding greenery to chandeliers, or making DIY hula hoop chandeliers for example. Another quirky take on this trend is to use hanging pots filled with your favourite plants and blooms.

 

Lighting
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your wedding decor and can help set the mood like nothing else. So when it comes to the vertical space, lighting can be used to great effect to create a really romantic, inviting atmosphere. Think hanging tea lights, Edison bulbs, Chinese lanterns, storm lanterns, and so on. Suspend them over your tables, over the dancefloor or dotted around areas of your venue.

Parasols and Ribbons
If you want to get a bit creative with your hanging décor, then why not try using parasols suspended from the ceiling? Turn them upside down and even fill with florals or lights. Ribbons and streamers are another fantastically creative and very cost effective way to get using the vertical space in your venue and is a great way to add some colour too.

 

Backdrops
One of the simplest ways to make use of the vertical space in your wedding venue is with a backdrop. Fairylight backdrops can be super impressive and set such an inviting tone. Other backdrops can be ideal for both making an impact but also for photos. Think floral walls, vintage style doors, palettes, draping and more. The only limit here is your imagination and of course the height of the room!
