We love spring weddings here at Wedding Ideas! You’ll want to make the most of the season’s light, pastel colours and sprinkle these throughout your day. Here Pretty Wedding Things reveal seven of their best budget-friendly finishing touches for this time of year…
Vintage floral poppers
Party Poppers are fast becoming an alternative to confetti at informal weddings – just imagine the photographs! These cheap, cheerful and very effective decorations are styled to fit in with vintage, country weddings. The neutral colours allow them to work with a variety of colour schemes and once popped, the streamers will add a splash of colour to your tables. Just £3.49 for a pack of 20.
Colourful paper flags make an eye-catching accessory for any table. These could be used on cupcakes favours or on sandwiches at an Afternoon Tea-themed reception. They are also fab finishing touches for your sweet table. Mix them with apothecary glass jars filled with tasty treats and striped paper bags for a vintage feel. They’re £3.99 per pack of 24.
Lattice votive holders
As an alternative to a standard tea light holders, these pastel-coloured votive holders stand 13cm tall and make a colourful addition to a table centre. Ideal in a country barn, these votives hold a tea light and would look striking against neutral flowers or on an outdoor table during sunset. They’re £4.95 each and come in four different colours.
Striped paper straws
These paper straws make an eye-catching addition to any table. You could build them into a fairground theme with candy floss and popcorn, a retro American theme with ice cream sundaes or a vintage theme with old-school mini milk bottles. Just £2.49 per pack of 25.
Heart place cards
These romantic heart place cards provide a quick and easy way of setting your tables. Names can be handwritten on each card and then slotted onto the side of a glass or over a ribbon tied around a cotton napkin. They are laser-cut, giving an intricate floral design that would work well with a spring, country garden theme. Just £2.99 per pack of 10.
Staying with hearts, these cute little wooden designs come in a variety of shades. They can be used as part of a table plan or as name badges or as place cards for guests. Names could be handwritten with a silver or white pen to add a handcrafted touch to your day. A great basic DIY option if you haven’t got much time.
