Use your imagination when it comes to welcoming your guests...
You want to make a big first impression on your special day, so why not consider going above and beyond with a gorgeous welcome sign, complete with flowers? The first piece of décor that your guests will see, your welcome sign should offer a taste of what your guests can expect from your big-day.
Whether you add a selection of fresh blooms on top of a rustic-inspired wooden sign (perfect for couples who love a bit of DIY), adorn a bicycle’s basket with pretty flowers or you press petals into a frame, you can set the tone of the day in style.
We particularly love the hoop adorned with foliage and fresh florals for a modern and pretty warm welcome to your wedding.
Top tip: if you have a hashtag you’d like your loved ones to use throughout the day, this is also a prime spot to share it!
How’s this for an original idea? Press and dry petals that will complement your scheme, display them in a frame and use your best handwriting to compose a cheery little message. Image: The Chalk Spot.
