Add Atmosphere to Your Wedding Day

Most couples want to add a sense of romance and atmosphere to their wedding day décor, no matter what sort of theme they are going for. Whether you want to have an alternative glamping style wedding, a small and hip city centre vibe or you’re after a traditional elegant ballroom affair, there are a few key pieces that will work with any wedding theme to give it instant atmosphere.

Fairy lights, draping, candles and uplighters are the simple, yet super effective essentials you need to give your wedding day that truly romantic mood and thoroughly atmospheric feeling.

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.

 

Fairy Lights

Few things add instant romance to your wedding than the addition of fairy lights. The traditional fairylight backdrop still packs a real punch and looks truly stunning. But if you want to take a new twist on the old classic, then consider string lights or bistro lights and look to hang them in unusual places, rather than just a straight backdrop. Consider pillar lights, curtain lights and try to mix them with draping and coloured uplighters as described below.

 

Draping

Fairylights and draping are a match made in wedding heaven and work together like a charm. Using both of these at the same time will instantly transform the look and feel of your wedding venue. When it comes to draping think about using it on the ceiling draping for real depth and a sense of drama. But also think about having it on entrances, on staircases and even on the backs of chairs instead of the traditional covers.

 

Candles

My philosophy is that you can never have enough candles. Easy to source and budget friendly, this is one element you can really go to town on and the payoff is fantastic. Think about simple touches like a load of small tea lights lining a hall, use candles in lanterns of differing sizes dotted around your venue. Try using a mix of tall pillar candles and smaller tea lights. If you’re going for long style tables, then use a barrage of candles as your running centrepieces. Think about having hanging tea lights over tables, try candles in mason jars and don’t forget floating candles too.

 

Uplighters

Uplighters are a fantastic addition to your wedding day décor and can really set the mood to a tee. Think about using a mix of filters and colours, such as pinks, purples, golds and blues to achieve that truly dreamy look. Mix them with pin lighting to highlight certain aspects of the venue and why not add some gobo lighting with your initials or wedding date?

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?
