Dream Ideas ~ Hanging decor

by

I am totally in love with hanging decor and think it just looks soooo effective at a wedding, especially if you are on a budget and can’t stretch to elaborate flower displays.

You really need to get your crafting geek-on to produce some of these lovelies, but isn’t that half the fun of wedding planning anyway?

And inspiration truly is everywhere, you don’t have to just stick with traditional wedding decor, take a look around you and see what’s going on in fashion, interiors, even art to help you decorate your space. This can be inside or outside, I am a big fan of taking the indoors outside and having quirky decor in unexpected places, like old vintage gilt frames and chandeliers hanging from trees.

Here’s my pick of the best hanging decor I have seen in wedding-land…..

? This one has to be my all time favourite by the wonderful Penny Cullen of Tigerlily Weddings. She is a superb planner based in London and came up with this fab idea for a wedding she was planning with a lovebirds theme.

Penny was inspired to create this decor effect after seeing hanging birdcages like these in a shop window.

? More hanging birdcage decor – this time a little more rustic.

? Hanging one or two flowerheads in glass jars, old medicing bottles or even tin cans, tied with string, looks super cute and rustic and can be done on a budget by collecting up lots of mismatched glass jars or tins- (every household must throw away tons of these every year) – and using seasonal flowers to keep the costs down.

? Or you can go for hanging candles for that sparkly twinkly effect.

? How about these white swan inspired hanging tutus? Look fab and super-chic no?

? This idea has decadence and beauty written all over it. Totally extravagant but I am totally in LOVE.

? Tissue pom poms always look cute, love how these have been joined together in a line.

? Genius idea at this old circus themed wedding – vintage umbrellas creating a canopy over the dancefloor.

So what do you think, does hanging decor get your heart racing as fast as mine, will you be having anything like this at your own wedding?

It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
