A wedding in white and blue
A wedding is the best of both worlds. Two people aiming for eternity, yet very much here and now. In these pictures, you’ll find timeless ideals united with up-to-date colours and materials.
Use fabrics for your arbour
The wedding arbour is the backdrop for lifelong memories. Here it’s made from soft, blue and white fabrics. Once the ceremony is over, why not use it as a photo booth for your guests? The eucalyptus twigs (in the rattan basket) don’t just add a beautiful bluish green – the leaves are a welcome substitute for rice to shower the bride and groom with.
Turn fabrics into ribbons
Tear up fabric into ribbons and use them for decoration. A simple idea you can use to get lots of beautiful effects.
Setting the table to set the mood
The blues and whites are echoed in the dinnerware, adding to the Mediterranean feel. The rest of the setting, with flowing textiles and generous floral arrangements, highlights the organic and sustainable elements of the theme.
Decorate the big things
Using a lot of fabric can make a big impression. So why not drape foldable chairs with fabric – naturally with a romantic pattern – to match the colour theme? Once the dinner is over, it can all be cleared away in a flash to make room for everyone’s signature dance moves.
Decorate the small things
Tying little bunches of wild flowers around your glasses adds a lovely touch of nature.
A feast for your eyes (and sweet tooth)
The day may draw to a close, but there’s still time to make an impression. Often an original idea carries further than buying new. See what you can do with the things you have. Like turning a chest into a different kind of dessert table, and presenting sweets from a combination of glasses and plates (use adhesive to build high).
Presenting sweets with style
You can serve sweets from glass jars for a classic look that’s budget-friendly, too.
A unique serving bowl
If you stick an EGENDOM bowl made of enamelled steel onto a glass with an adhesive, you can create a memorable way to present sweets.
