Are you looking for some wedding venue inspiration? Then we have just the thing! Decorating your wedding venue can often sound daunting and expensive, but that doesn’t have to be the case.

Take a look.
Vintage wedding bunting
If you’re going for a vintage-feel for your big day, then a wedding bunting is essential! All you need is some fabric (this can be old table cloths or a printed design of your choice), scissors, a triangle card template, cotton tape and a sewing kit. Simply place the triangle card template on your piece of fabric and cut out two triangle shapes, then sew together and repeat this until you have created enough triangles to fill your desired bunting size. To pin the flags to the cotton tape, simply lay the tape out and place the triangles against it with the same amount of space left in between, then sew on to the tape from both sides. There you have it – the perfect wedding bunting, at a fraction of the price!
Floating flower centre piece
A centre piece is a great finishing touch to a wedding table, but there is no need to spend a fortune on them when you can create your own. Simply grab some glass vases, rose petals (or flowers of your choice) and tealight candles, and on the morning of the wedding, fill up the vase a third full with water and scatter a handful of roses over it - then pop a tealight on top so it floats amongst the rose petals. When the candle is burning, it will create a stunning light across the water and petals, giving that wow-factor at the evening party.
Chalkboards are a really good way to add a personalised touch to your big day and they work perfectly in a shabby chic wedding! You can simply purchase a framed blackboard from a local charity shop or home goods store, and paint the frame to the colour of your choice. Using chalkboard pens, you can then create calligraphy signs writing welcome notes, directions and menus – a simple yet effective touch!
