We Love Holiday Wreaths at Weddings

Every year we do this, Halloween passes and the holidays flood all of our inspiration feeds and we just. can’t. get. enough. Anyone with us? We’re loving it! One of the things we’ve spied and are loving the most? Holiday wreaths at weddings. Simple greenery, simple shape, big statement. If you’re headed towards a winter wedding, would you consider adding wreaths to your decor? Here’s a few ways you could consider (we think might sway you to a ‘yes!’).

I LOVE holiday wreaths at weddings! They're so classic and the perfect way to bring a holiday vibe without red

ONE: How cute is this pooch! We’ve been spying wreaths on pets in weddings for a while, but are loving the wintery take on the trend.

TWO: This one might be one of my favourite uses (which is why it’s in here twice!), wreaths on the back of the bride and groom’s chair. We especially love the lettered signs topping these ones off!

THREE: We had to include this one because of that sweet banner! You could have anything lettered on that baby and it would look incredible. Merry Christmas? Thank you? Just Married? Forever begins here? Whatever you choose, it’s a win guaranteed.

FOUR: As promised, wreaths on chairs 2.0. But really, isn’t this the perfect use for them?!

FIVE: Did we mention that they make a gorgeous photo prop? Hold one of these babies and you’ve completed your holiday card photo!

SIX: This wedding is stunning top to bottom. We love that they decorated the heritage church with classic holiday wreaths– so simple but striking between those gorgeous windows!

SEVEN: We know you’ve loved floral crowns, but how about a pine crown? Embrace the season! This one is a DIY and it’s SO lovely.

EIGHT: This whole wedding (actually the same as numero 2) just oozes cozy winter goodness. We love that she opted for a fur shrug and sleeves- way to embrace the season!

NINE: Okay, okay. So this shot is actually from a spring wedding… but it was drop dead gorgeous so we couldn’t omit it. Is this wild wreath collection above the settee stunning!? I want one in my home now. It’s all kinds of wonderful.

 

Tell us, what’s your fave? I’m still drooling over number nine. It is happening around here, I swear.

Inspiration for an Autumn Neutrals Wedding

When you think of autumn weddings, do you think of bold orange and red hues? I do too, but lately I’ve been spying a new trend- autumn neutrals. And can I just tell you that I’m loving it!? It’s sophisticated, a bit boho, and crazy elegant. Ready to see what I’m talking about?

LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:

ONE: Just looking at this photo makes me want to be there. Isn’t it stunning? Fall weddings and moody weather go hand in hand and they make for dynamite photo opps.
TWO: This bouquet started my mission and sucked me into Pinterest. I can’t get enough of the foraged fall fillers in this bouquet and how wild it looks!
THREE: This is perhaps my favourite of them all… but I might be slightly biased. These mini pies were the perfect dessert for our fall fete last year.
FOUR: We’re on board the naked cake train and this one oozes fall glam. If you love boho nordic style, you should really check out that whole shoot, it’s stunning.
FIVE: These place cards aren’t from a fall wedding, but they look like they should be! Gilded florals and pinecones paired with calligraphy? Heck yes.
SIX: This table couldn’t be more perfectly elegant. We are in love with the florals they’ve paired and you should probably click over just to check out the gorgeous setting. Anyone have a manor house like this we can use for a wedding? Please?
SEVEN: One of the things we spotted over and over again in our searches around this theme is floral crowns full of deeper hued greenery and wild blooms. Isn’t this stunning?

I really can’t get enough of this palette. It’s like a cozy blanket but ridiculously beautiful. Which inspiration image is your favourite? I’m just so taken with that last image, the wind in her hair and that floral crown. I’d love to hear yours!

Trend Alert: Family Style Receptions

This is another trend that we’re completely smitten with. Family style reception dinners! We’re so over walking accross the dance floor to get a second helping, and we know that plated service can be costly PLUS, there’s something about breaking bread and sharing plates that makes for the best dinner conversation.

We LOVE family style reception dinners! No more buffets for me please!

LEFT TO RIGHT / TOP TO BOTTOM:

ONE: This is one of our favourite shoots we’ve been a part of. The rich colours, casual elegance, and charm just made it the full package. We love using vintage silver for serving share plates.

TWO: Sharing food makes for such wonderful memories. Plus, it cuts down on food waste compared to other styles of service. If you don’t like potatoes, you just wont take them! And if someone beside you does, they aren’t staring at your plate wishing it wasn’t weird to ask to eat yours. And it’s not awkward to take an extra helping.

THREE: Long tables lend so well to family style service. Just pass the dishes down the line! Where tables this long my have been a challenge with guests getting up and down to head to the buffet, family service allows for a more intimate set up like this.

FOUR: Meals or share plates– it’s up to you! We love the idea of having appetizers on wood slabs to keep guests filled up as they visit the night away.

FIVE: Food can be beautiful too! Family service challenges us to be selective about what we have on the table. This can cut decor costs without cutting the style.

 

What do you think of this trend? I don’t just love it as a wedding professional, but a wedding goer- it’s one of my favourite ways to feast!
