We had so much fun and creative fulfilment working with this couple on styling their wedding! Each aspect was true to Nico and Liza’s quirky personalities. They provided a lot of input on what they expected and the end result was amazing. Not only did this wedding have a playful look and feel about it, but it also contained elements of eco-friendly décor running through the theme.
Colourful bunting and red apples were hung from the trees with Hessian rope to introduce the theme to the drinks area. Guests clearly enjoyed the apples as a quick snack and quenched their thirst sipping Rooibos ice tea through fun striped straws from recycled bottles.
We loved the concept of tying the names of guests and their table numbers onto a wooden ladder. Hessian overlays on the tables gave the wedding a relaxed and rustic feel, and then, just to introduce a splash of vibrant colour, we placed blue and red doilies under the glass under plates. Continuing with the theme, each table was marked with a number on recycled glass bottles, filled with water for the guest to drink as they were seated. Talk about multi-purposing!
The flowers were casual and cool; little posies, arranged in recycled jars and bottles, as well as in small antique vases and votives – a delightfully creative way to save money on your wedding flowers!
Not sure what to do with napkin detail? Why not print your menu on a napkin? Guests can then take their napkins home as tangible mementos to remember your day by. The bride and groom also wanted to do something different with their cutlery. We simply bunched it up and tied it with Hessian rope. The guests loved the little recycled glass jam pots filled with crème caramels – the groom’s favourites. Each guest’s name was tied to a jam pot with a little thank you note at the back.
If colourful and rustic frivolity is your vibe, you will be sure to have lots of fun when planning your wedding.
