Are you planning a country chic wedding but struggling for inspirational ideas? Shropshire Petals is on hand to share some inspirational ideas of how to use natural petal confetti and wheat to add a real touch of the country to your special day.
Traditional Confetti Shot
Celebrate the first moments of being a newly married couple by having your guests shower you with delicate petals, giving you a wow factor confetti photo. Not only will you love it, your church or venue will too as there is no clearing up as petals are just like blossom falling from a tree.
Depending on the type of venue you choose, you will want to decorate to suit your wedding theme. Add some delicate lighting to windowsills and side tables by placing a candle in a glass vase or fish bowl, and surround with petals in your chosen colour scheme.
Wedding Table Decorations
Consider what you are having for your main table decorations. From big floral displays and candles to lights in a vase, or even some simple handpicked flowers in a rustic jug, add some colour and texture to your tables by scattering some rose petals on crisp, white tablecloths for a romantic addition to your décor.
If you are having a rustic country wedding, glam up your chairs by tying a bunch of wheat or lavender to the back with some raffia. Alternate the direction of the bunches so each chair looks different. You could make pretty name tags and attach to each bunch as a unique place setting; your guests can also keep these as favours.
Get crafty and make your own place settings using simple pieces of wheat and lavender. Take a sprig or two, wrap the ends together with some florist tape, place on top of a rolled napkin and secure by tying some string or raffia around them.
Be unique and use a wheat sheaf as your bouquet. Place dried or fresh flowers into your bouquet to add your own personality and style. Be creative; keep the stems free or wrap them in some ribbon or fabric to match or contrast your wedding dress. Keep a reminder of your special day by using the wheat sheaf as a decoration in your home after the big day.
Make your own buttonholes to match your reception décor. Take a few flower heads and some wheat or lavender and wrap the ends in some ribbon to match your colour scheme. You can make each buttonhole different, adding a personal touch for your bridal party.
