3. Faux flowers

Make them in your theme colours and top them off with some colourful ribbon. This will look perfect at a chic, modern, and minimalist wedding.
For vintage or traditional weddings, tap into nature and create strategic signage. Write on wide leaves for direction and drop cute quotes on boards. You can also announce who is getting married by leaving your initials and wedding date on sprayed or gold dust boards.
5. Unique place settings
Cut colourful card stocks into beautiful shapes for place settings. You can have them laser cut round the edges with words written in glitters. Give them an intricate and polished look with fashionable ribbons for casual weddings
6. Custom centrepieces
If you’re going for a coastal or garden-inspired ambience, create centrepieces with succulents. They’re a breath of fresh air and are the perfect height. Put the succulents in woven baskets or transparent bowls to give a more relaxed look.
7. Alternative tables’ style
Is a farm wedding your dream style? Ditch the proper tables and opt for barrels or liquor crates. For chairs, you can replace them with bales of hay. It will be a fun and laid-back atmosphere.
8. Paper or solar-powered lanterns
If you want to create a soothing and romantic ambience, try out the simple paper or solar-powered lanterns. They’re easy to create and budget-friendly if you’d rather buy. Put them at the tables, on posts, and in the lounge.
9. Creative guest book
Instead of a traditional guestbook, make it more fun by having guests sign off on a loved-up portrait. You can also have them sign off on mini wine bottles which will serve as wedding favours to them. This will keep the guests invested while having thorough fun.
10. Family style ambience
If the wedding is casual, set it in family style with Mylar, banners, and string lights. This is especially great for outdoor and backyard weddings. Write beautiful information on colourful banners and let the string lights shine around them. Excitement will be the order of the day.
11. Photo wall
Give your guest one more thing to smile about by including them in your wedding. Create a photo wall of your pictures with as many guests as you can. Pictures from way back will stir up pleasant memories and nostalgia. Let the guests take pictures with the wall as a backdrop. For more fun
