Photo Display Using personal pictures as wedding decorations is an easy way to make your affair feel more intimate. The DIY options are endless– paint an old window, rustic door, or shutters. Mount the images with mod podge or secure them with clothes pins.
Treat Buffet Everyone loves some wedding day goodies! Make your display table more exciting by using drawers as containers for your treats or forget the table all together and opt for a dresser instead! Make a special arrangement for plates, bags, or more treats within some of the drawers and use glass containers of different heights for an elegant look. Taking advantage of the drawers along with the different sizes of jars will give your display a visually pleasing play on heights!
Floral Arrangements There is nothing more gorgeous than a simple table covered with fresh flowers. Fill the drawers of an antique table with overflowing flowers or use old desk drawers to house flowers for orignal centerpieces.
Refreshments What could be better than a bar? Only a stunning one, of course! Romantic desks, dressers, and vanities make for the perfect drink stand. Take advantage of the drawers to display more glasses or fill them with flowers for a decorative touch.
DIY option for an outdoor wedding- Find a breathtaking old door. Drill a hook in each corner. Hang the door from a tree and use it as a floating table for your cocktail glasses. Decorate the sides with bunting or lace for a finishing touch.
Programs Whether you use only drawers for your programs or an entire dresser, your ceremony will feel much warmer by including rustic pieces. You can also paint window panes with chalkboard paint to leave your guests a message or write directly on the glass for a playful feel.
Seating Cards Whether your seating cards are strung from rustic doors, hanging from painted shutters, written in different panels, or set in miniature desk drawers, taking advantage of the furniture trend is an adorable option for table assignments.
Alter Couples are making their ceremony sights more intimate by arranging alters reminiscent of their living rooms or by using antiques as props to display floral arrangements. Just an arch of rustic doors creates a breathtaking space to say “I do!”
Backdrop Bringing furniture outdoors is a lovely backdrop idea for your wedding portrait. An elegant chaise in the woods or a DIY photo booth with an old frame and romantic chairs are both original ways to make your photos even more special.
