The marriage season is coming! And if you’re like me last year, you have the outline (the place, the DJ, the caterer …), but many details are still outstanding! The devil is in the details; I decided to help you a little by offering a selection of the best original decorative ideas (that I could mostly find on Etsy) for a shabby chic marriage. All are not necessarily in the Shabby Chic style, but I hope it will inspire you.
1- marriage Photo Booth + Props
Including a photo booth at your marriage reception is a fantastic way to add an element of fun to your marriage day and capture your guests in a gorgeous backdrop. Whilst the old-school style of booth has always been popular (the box style photo booth you squeeze into and retro film strips come out), I’m also a big fan of the newer creative versions of photo booths and marriage backdrops. As shown in the picture below, you can find on Etsy plenty of marriage photo booth props.
2- Hearts, hearts, hearts, but not the cheesiest way!
A heart shape may be the most obvious marriage motif, but it can also easily be the cheesiest. However, when used sparingly, hearts can be fresh, stylish, and totally sweet. Here are some of our favorite ways to feature hearts in your marriage décor.
1- Moss Hearts
2- Wooden Hearts
3- Lemonade yellow spring summer marriage hearts
4- NAVY BLUE Straws with Gold Glitter Heart
3- Chalkboard marriage
So what are your thoughts about the chalkboard marriage trend? To be honest, I didn’t even realize this was officially a trend until last year when attended a country marriage in a large barn and outdoor pavilion. The bride used flowers, candles, and dried vines intertwined with hundreds of lights to add romance to the rustic appeal, but she also chose to weave a chalkboard theme throughout, from the invitation to the program to the food labels and even to the favors.
So if you’re thinking of using this trend in your marriage, here are a few unique and creative ways to include chalkboards around every corner:
Chalkboard Save-the-Dates and Invitations
Chalkboard Table Numbers (can be a not bad DIY project!)
Chalkboard marriage Program Banner
Chalkboard Photo Backdrops (as shown in the 1st picture of this post)
Chalkboard Seating Chart
4- Hay Bales for a Barn marriage Style
Hay bales have been a trend in rustic weddings from the very beginning, most likely because they are widely available at most rustic venues! I love these miniature hay bales that can be used as table decor. Source of the hay bales images.
