We love vintage campers at weddings!

This post was just so much fun to put together. If you’ve been following Bespoke Decor for a while, you might remember our super fun Kids at Weddings shoot from a couple years back! One of the most special bits from this shoot (although there were a lot!) was a vintage camper for the kiddos to duck into for some quiet time. Since then… we’re hooked. We couldn’t help but rounding up some of the best ideas on how to use vintage campers at your wedding- just in time for summer.

LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM

ONE: This wedding is so bohemian it’s amazing. They used an airstream right front and centre as a backdrop to their vows.

TWO: A vintage camper indoors? Why not? This event makes it look like the best idea.

THREE: What an incredible location- am I right?! This wedding uses an airstream for a travelling bar… perfect!

FOUR: If you’re headed on a roadtrip for your honeymoon… why not make your vintage camper your getaway vehicle?

FIVE: So we’ve covered a mobile bar… but what about a mobile prep kitchen? It’s perfectly functional while making a fun backdrop.

SIX: How fun is this… a photo booth!? I love it!

SEVEN: Last but definitely not least… one of our fave shoots of all time. A children’s retreat.

What’s your favourite? Obviously we’re partial to our own… but also I’d love to see a bride and groom drive off with a vintage camper!

DIY Crates full of flowers

The one tip you need to know to fill a crate with flowers

So you want to fill a crate with flowers- and you don’t want to pay someone to do it for you. You want it to look heaping and full of flowers- and you don’t want it to cost a fortune. How hard can it be? Not that hard with our one tip that will help the crate look fuller with less blooms. Can you guess what it is?

Yep- mason jars. Or if it’s a taller crate, vases. Here’s why. If you just filled the crate with flowers that would be A LOT of flowers to fill the thing. But when you add mason jars, not only is it easier to water your pretty blooms, but it gives them something to lean against that is smaller than the edges of the crate. Take a vase with a wide opening. It takes a lot of flowers to fill that sucker. But if that vase has a flare at the top (meaning the top is just as big, but there’s a smaller neck), less flowers are necessary to make the bouquet look just as full. Does this make sense? Think of the mason gars as the ‘smaller neck’.

So to fill a crate this size, by using mason jars, you only need to use about half of the blooms as you would without. And that’s a promise. 😉 And you can even space the mason jars out a bit so you use less… it won’t even look like there’s less flowers. So snip some blooms from your garden or order from your florist and get arranging! Use longer stems at the ends to help them spill over and cut them shorter in the middle. Fluff as necessary and always use greens (leave some leaves on the stems) to help fill it out.
