Ribbons and Bows Wedding Theme
Here are a few simple Aspirational Bride ideas to get you started…
1. Use small bows and/or ribbon to decorate wedding favours to compliment your colour theme. Alternatively, use them to decorate gifts for members of the wedding party, traditionally handed out during the grooms speech.
2. Use a medium or large bow as chair décor. You can combine it with fresh or artificial flowers, ribbon or even raffia to make something unique and eye-catching which perfectly compliments your colour theme.
3. Whether it’s a top table, cake table or bar area, ribbons and bows can effectively add the finishing touch to garlands and wreaths. Liaise with your florist and show them the colour and texture you want them to incorporate into your design as they will have some super ideas too!
4. Add a little glamour to your bridal car, if you’re decorating everything else then why not carry the theme through to your chosen mode of transport!
5. Finally, think about the detail… whether it’s doors, seating plans or card boxes, bows and ribbons can add the finishing touch!
