Less is sometimes more when it comes to styling your wedding; the simplest of details can make a big statement. Wooden crates are the perfect accessory for styling your wedding as they are chic, shabby and very versatile. Here are five ways in which you can use wooden creates to style your wedding day.

The Bar

If you are holding your wedding in a room or venue without a bar, making or hiring one will mean you can style your bar to match your wedding.

You could stack wooden crates together to make a bar area, using several crates to display the drinks on offer. Or, if you are providing a speciality drink, place some crates filled with bottles or glasses of your choice around your reception.

DIY Photo Booth

Who doesn’t love a photo booth at a wedding? Fix wooden crates together to create your own DIY photo booth and place props and dressing up items in each crate for guests to choose from. Team this with a quirky chalkboard sign to complete the look.

There will be areas at your venue where you will want to add some styling, either to fill a space or show off your venue’s features. Whatever your chosen wedding style, you can use wooden crates to make a grand feature to display some treasured photographs of you and your family, or combine them with an old cart for your cake table.

Wooden crates make great drinks tables. Stack one or two or place them side-by-side in your chill out area for guests to rest their drinks on.

Aisle Décor

Use wooden crates to decorate your ceremony aisle. Arrange crates of different sizes vertically, horizontally and stacked on top of each other, then add candles, lanterns and flowers on and in the crates. Place these either side of your aisle entrance with a pretty floral arch to walk underneath for a romantic touch to your ceremony.
