Tell me about your decor!

I know that so many of you ladies and gents are so creative and I’m so jealous - I wish I had that artistic side to me. I wanted to talk decor!


Due to my lack of creativity, I hired my florist to do my decor items. It was important to me that I had something sort of in my colour scheme. But really, I gave my florist the reigns to tell me what looks good!
How did you come up with your decor items? How far in advance did you start to work on them? What was/is your favourite decor piece? I’d love to see pictures!!
If you hired a decorator like me, how did you find them? Did you know exactly what you wanted or did they help you find your vision? Give them a shout out if you want!
Here’s a few pictures of some items I’m going to have at my wedding!

    I think its newish. so yeah before all the guests arrive my FH and i are going to have the venue for ourselves so we can take some intimate photos just the two of us (with our photographer) with no one else in the room and just have some alone time cuz once the reception starts and we do entrances and stuff we dont get to see the room all done up, candles lit etc. you dont really get a chance to take it all in once everyone is around

    I've never heard of that before.

    Is that when your photographer will take pictures of you when you first see the room? Sorry if I'm way off and sound ridiculous haha.

    Oh thats amazing!! i love the vendors that really go all out to show you. we didnt really know what decor we wanted but then she started putting table clothes and centerpieces and then mixed and matched everything too so we found exactly what we wanted!

    Phenomenal! We get a design trial where she'll bring our florals and decor to our venue one evening and set it up for us and we can tweak where necessary which I love.


    Seeing it on a screen pales in comparison to seeing it in our venue with the appropriate lighting and everything. SO EXCITING!

    Exactly. like its hard to imagine it all in my head so the pictures of all the decor really helped. she also made a fake guest table at her location so we could really see it. they went above and beyond and im so happy i booked with them!

    Yes we used SNS decor. they really sat down with us and showed us pictures and all the decor items they have and put together a rough picture of what the back drop and tables will look like. it was a long meeting but they really captured everything!

    We're having the ceremony in the in-law's back yard, which was just recently landscaped so I really feel like I don't even have to lift a finger with that part lol just rent the chairs and chair decor which will be wrapped with tulle and tied with a bow and a sprig of lavender in each bow. The aisle will end at the pergola that's covered with this gorgeous climbing vine. Then there will be a simple iced tea/water table set up since we're having a mid-summer wedding. For the reception it'll be modern rustic, metallic accents mixed with different woods, and mostly greenery for centrepieces

    We DIYed a lot our decor. The curtains for our ceremony were from IKEA, the flower garlands were from Michael's, my mom made the aisle bows and we bought the aisle carpet. For our head table, we got the arch from another bride on kijiji, and my mom dyed the flowers and added the curtains from Fabricland.


    We're actually wanting to sell everything; so if anyone is interested, let me know! Tell me about your decor! 4Tell me about your decor! 5Tell me about your decor! 6Tell me about your decor! 7

    I'm with you on the rustic look - it's not for me personally but a rustic wedding definitely looks cool!


    Minimalist I feel like is really in right now!! I love how light and fresh the decor looks!

    I had a list of items I knew I didn't want (like Mason jars, wood cuts, or anything "rustic") because they aren't our style.


    Then I was able to use better key words on Pinterest like "modern centerpieces" or "minimalist wedding decor" and I felt like that helped. Throwing colors into searches helps a lot too!
    I want lots of greenery with white flowers and a load of candles. My fiance seems to like what I've picked so far.

    I am also very jealous of everyones creativity lol.

    My venue supplied a lot of the decor, so I just had to put it together.

    We did gold geometric lanterns on wood slabs, with greenery and votives surrounding it. Nice and simple and litte.

    We were going for a rustic chic vibe, so we had wood accents throughout (Our guest book was a 4 foot piece of wood, wine barrels, wooden ladder with wine bottles for seating chart etc)

    I didn't want to go too over the top!
