Over the past decade or two the shepherd hook has drifted to the back of the wedding closet, but they`re back and more popular than ever before. This practical little element has always been used to line the church aisle – whether indoors or out – with a flower sphere bobbing from its hook.
However with the shepherd hook making a brand new comeback also comes a whole cluster of new ideas and uses – here`s a little hanging inspiration to line your very own walkway:
- Mini chandeliers
- Wrought iron lanterns
- Mini Chinese lanterns
- Glass bottles sporting freshly picked valley flowers
- Metal or wooden pails filled with flowers
- Perspex letters, monograms and shapes
- Wire hearts
- Giant dried starfish, ideal for a beach themed wedding
- Strings of beads or crystals
Then again, shepherd hooks don`t only have to line the aisle…
- Position them next to the exit with the confetti baskets hooked to the ends.
- Arrange the hooks in and around the venue and hook small buckets of candy, macaroons and cookies to them.
- Place a hook next to each guest table and suspend the ice bucket from its tip.
- Alternatively place the hook alongside each table and hang the table number on the end.
- Suspend your table plan from one or more shepherd hooks in the foyer of the venue.
