Wedding Decorations: Small Details That Will Make a Difference


Imagining your wedding decor is like starting to draw on a blank canvas : it’s a bit hard, at first, to know where to start.

From the obvious silverware, furniture and floral centrepieces, to the colour palette that ties it all together perfectly with your wedding theme… There are so many elements to think about. It’s easy to forget about the little details that will make your day extra special, both for you and your guests.

Scroll down for a couple of decoration ideas to include to take your wedding celebration to the next level.

Little details to enhance your wedding ceremony

Make a difference from the start by handing out a fan wedding program. It’s the perfect way to set the tone of your wedding ceremony and to keep your guests informed about the day’s happenings.

For the church or city hall’s exit, you can also leave some paper cones for your guests. Filled with rice, confetti, flower petals or even dried lavender, they will end the first part of your big day in a lovely way.

Wedding signs to decorate your venue

Before your guests arrive at your venue, at the cocktail bar, next to the dessert table or to your wedding urn: the wedding sign finds its place almost everywhere during your big day. Pick two, three, or even more that match perfectly with your wedding stationery, to add a little something special to your wedding decor!

Customise it with the words of your choice to welcome your guests, share what your wedding urn’s purpose is or more: the sky’s the limit!

Complete it with an authentic oak wood frame to turn this traditional sign into a work of art, a memory of the best day of your life to keep and hang in your home afterwards.

Wedding favours to show your guests gratitude

 They’re here to celebrate your love story: there is no better way to thank your guests for being here than with a present. To add to that “wow” factor to your wedding favours, think about matching them to your wedding theme and stationery.

Looking for some great ideas? Add a personalised favour box next to each of your guests’ plates at the table and fill it with some of your favourite treats: sweets, macarons, marshmallows, meringues…

For a delicious and personalised gift, you can also design your own biscuit box with both of your names and the date of your wedding. Inside, let your guests discover lovely custom-made biscuits! On them, write the date to remember or a unique, fun, endearing message : “made with love”, “eat me”… let your inspiration guide you!

If you prefer to go down the traditional road with sugar almonds, add a little something extra by picking them the same colours as your wedding decor. Put them in a little box and add a gift tag, personalised with your names and the date of your wedding.

For a more unique surprise, why not offer some dried flowers in an adorable vial or seeds that every guest will be able to grow into their gardens?

Stationery essentials to style your wedding table

On your table, it’s the details that will add a little je ne sais quoi that your guests (and you!) will love and remember.

Your wedding menus, table numbers and place cards are obviously staple to your table. Set the tone of your wedding tale here by picking a stationery that fits perfectly the rest of your decor: the theme you’ve picked and the invitations you’ve sent!

For your first dance, your first kiss as newlyweds, or the arrival of the cake: let your guests add a bit of magic with sparklers. Deposited next to each plate on the table, enhanced by a lovely personalised tag with instructions on when to light them, these little accessories will add beautiful, real-life sparkles to your wedding day.  As for the lovely finishing touch, label your wine and champagne bottles with personalised tags.
