If you’re tying the knot this spring season and can’t decide on a theme, then why not consider having a beautiful theme incorporating birds and butterflies? Pretty, bright and perfect for this time of year, the possibilities are endless when it comes to how you add touches of these spring creatures into your day.
From accents in the church or ceremony venue, to the wedding room itself, to the tables, the cake and photo props you can have such fun bringing this one to life. Plus it’s a theme that lends itself to any colour too, from pretty pastels to pops of bold colour and it’s also a DIY’ers dream with lots of fun ways you can make and do some fab décor at home.
If you’d like to get in touch with me to discuss this theme, or any aspect of your wedding planning or décor, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
In the Church/Ceremony Venue
We often see rose petals sprinkled along the aisle and church pews, but why not consider small paper birds and butterflies instead? You could also put some cut outs on sticks and arrange them inside the flowers or pew ends. Also if your church or venue allows confetti then look for butterfly and bird shapes. Or if you really want to make a statement what about releasing some birds or butterflies at the end of the ceremony?
You can have lots of fun with your table décor with this theme and the possibilities are endless. Think about having bird or butterfly place cards that sit on the wine glasses. Why not have mini birds’ nests with edible eggs inside as favours? Have retro style cloche jars with nests or mini butterfly trees inside? Small birdcages make for ideal centrepieces and why not put some clip on butterflies on the seat sashes too?
Instead of a traditional guest book, why not have some love bird or butterfly shaped cards for use in birdcages or wishing tree? Ask your guest to leave little message on the notes and you’ll have such fun looking back on them after the wedding. Also if you’re a DIY lover then think about making some backdrops adorned with paper shapes, hanging paper streamers and garlands made of origami or what about gobo lights projecting butterflies and birds around the room?
Finally, don’t forget your cake! A swish of colourful birds or butterflies can really make your cake look incredible and work really well on mini cakes or cupcakes too. Also think about having mini love birds as cake toppers.
