Fit as a Fiddle { Design Inspiration }


The smooth curly curve of a fiddlehead certainly pulls at the heartstrings of any arts, culture and music lover. Whether made out of wire or carved out of wood, this stunning design element is oh-so whimsical in nature and can be used to add a little charm to just about any aspect of the wedding day – here’s what we mean:

  • Make your own fiddleheads by shaping a thick piece of wire into a coil, which can then be added as a little extra in your bridal bouquet and other floral arrangements.
  • Incorporate the swirly design into your stationery and paper elements.
  • Decorate the wedding cake with swirls and top it with marzipan or wire fiddleheads.
  • Keep an eye out for interesting fiddlehead inspired jewellery and accessories.
  • Adorn the tables with fiddlehead inspired chandeliers and also include other wrought iron elements in the wedding décor.
  • Extend the theme into the menu by serving snails and having the chefs decorate the plates with swirls of sauce.
  • Hire a string quartet to set the mood either at the reception, cocktail party or ceremony.
  • If one or both of you are skilled at playing the fiddle, work a little romantic serenade into the programme.
  • Instead of a guest book, have your guests write and carve their messages onto an old fiddle (that no longer plays).
  • Add a touch of whimsy to the wedding venue décor by hanging intricate paper coils from the ceiling and chandeliers.
