Whimsy is literally defined as playful or fanciful and is the perfect match for wedding décor. It’s a day that is meant to be full of fancy and fun so why not bring that out in your wedding day theme? Think pom poms, ice cream dream pastel palettes, lots of soft blooms, draping, fairylights, candyfloss and lanterns.
Not only dreamy on the eye, but often most of these whimsical décor touches are relatively inexpensive meaning they won’t blow the budget, plus if you’re a dab hand at crafting then many items such as pom poms and streamers can be put together at home yourself before the big day.

Pom Poms and Ribbons
Pom Poms and ribbons are not only the perfect items to create a whimsical wedding feel, they are also very budget friendly and if you’re a bit of a crafter or DIY’er then they are right up your street too! Think beyond just the obvious uses such as placing pom poms on tables and instead consider suspending them from the ceilings over your tables. Why not have oversized pom poms on the backs of chairs or string some ribbons here instead? Think about getting creative with some pom pom walls and backdrops which will be ideal for photos.
Think ice cream dream pinks, lavenders, mint greens, baby blue and cornflower yellows. You don’t have to go with the obvious in terms of décor either. Yes pom, poms, bunting and streamers look super in theses colours, but why not have oversized pastel balloons, bridesmaid’s dresses, chair covers and sashes, cakepop or candyfloss favours, flamingos or unicorns in pastel shades instead?
Nothing says whimsy like romantic fairylight walls. Think of cascading fairylights over balconies or walls, curtain style lights, as well as interspersing them with soft draping. And don’t forget using uplighters with coloured filters to project a really whimsical atmosphere in the wedding venue too.
Soft blooms in pastel colours are perfect for creating a touch of whimsy, but don’t forget to have a little fun and think of using said blooms in an unusual way. Think of hanging florals suspended above tables, blooms sitting in lightbulbs and lanterns, flower walls, floral chandeliers, flower arches and oversized blossom trees as pew ends too!
