When deciding on decorations for your wedding reception, punches of color in unexpected places can really tie your color palette together. For instance, around your cake table, draped in front of your head table, or displayed behind your card table are three places where couples frequently forget to decorate. One of the easiest ways to add a punch of color or personalization is with garland; and if you want to really make it pop, use colorful tassel garland in your wedding colors! We love using tassel garland for weddings, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties. Tassel garland is an easy way to decorate a small space with big impact. I also love to use tassel garland as a chair decoration for the bride at her bridal shower. You can find delightfully designed tassel garland for weddings at Ellenor Shop and we’re sharing our faves with you today! Loralie, designer and owner, is giving away a free tassel garland (or fringe garland — winner’s choice!) in any color combination! Read on to find out more…

Oh, how I adore barn wedding receptions! Emma here and barn weddings are, in my opinion, the perfect pairing of a rustic outdoor wedding with a little extra comfort for guests. It also offers less stress for the bride, since weather for an outdoor wedding can be unpredictable. Although tents provide some reassurance, a barn is a pretty safe bet; inside a barn reception, guests can stay warm and enjoy strolling appetizers, seated dinner, a full-scale bar, and a solid dance floor. Just a few steps outside, though, they can enjoy a stroll along wildflower fields underneath an illuminated starry night sky. Ah, isn’t it romantic? Barn weddings have been trending for quite awhile now and we don’t see this craze going away anytime soon! Today we’re showing you twenty-one barn reception ideas for weddings to get your creativity flowing. Which number is your favorite? I’m obsessed with #21. I guess you could say I saved the best for last. Just wait until you see it! Enjoy!

Wedding signs are one of the coolest (and easiest) ways to personalize your ceremony and reception spaces. Most of the time, signs are the easiest thing to add because a sign can stand up on its own or be placed on a simple easel, like this, right at your ceremony or reception entrance. Guests always seem to take notice of signs and couples love them too! We’ve seen couples go crazy over wedding welcome signs, directional signs, signage at the bar (like a signature cocktail sign), chair signs, ceremony aisle signs, and even this fun printable bathroom sign. And while you could place signage throughout your entire wedding space, we recommend just a few. As with most things, just a few will do so you aren’t overwhelming your space.

Every once in awhile, we stumble upon an aisle decoration that we absolutely adore… and this is one of them! The lovely Country Bliss Designs makes these “Love is Patient” signs based on the popular verse from 1 Corinthians 13, a favorite among couples as a ceremony reading. As you walk down the aisle, you’ll see the verse written out on large, easy-to-read signage with pretty calligraphy. Take a look! It’s today’s #HANDMADEADAY pick!

Here Comes the Bride Sign — Handmade-a-Day

I love a classic chalkboard sign, especially when it features lovely hand-drawn lettering from Lily and Val. That’s why when I saw this Here Comes the Bride sign, I couldn’t resist sharing it immediately as our Handmade-a-Day pick. As a bonus, this sign is double-sided and features the words Just Married on the opposite side. Your flower girl can carry this sign down the aisle in lieu of tossing petals before your grand entrance. After the ceremony, she can flip it over and lead the way for the newlyweds through the procession. The Just Married sign can also be used as reception decor or even on your getaway car en route to your honeymoon. Take a look!
