{Trend Alert} Hanging decor

Talk about making a statement from floor to ceiling… While a ceiling may not be the first thing in your wedding décor list, it presents a unique blank canvas for you to transform. Like the rest of your venue it can be customized to suit your wedding. Hanging decorations can add light or simply be that perfect addition to create the ambiance you are hoping for.

This idea applies flawlessly to outdoor weddings, when it comes to decorating the gazebo, tent, or even just overhanging branches.
On the other hand, some indoor venues allow you to hang up decorations without requiring even the slightest change, and some may require an extra touch of creativity.
What you can do with a ceiling greatly depends on where your wedding is being held. Get some inspiration from the following gallery.

Mason Jars: A “must have” for a rustic-chic wedding. We have seen them around use for centerpieces and favors, but without a doubt, hanging them is the prettiest way to incorporate them into your special day. You can fill them with flowers during the day and with candles at night…

Fab fridays: Lavender classy

Lavender is the ancient herb of love and devotion. These lavender flowers are timeless, classy and romantic. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised to find these pretty bouquets and unique lavender favors at your wedding. The lovely scent that fills the air on your special day will have your guests remembering your wedding day fondly for many years to come. Here is some inspiration for a lavender wedding decor.

Purple and power have always been linked. In ancient Rome, purple dyes made from mollusks were so rare only the very rich could afford them. Today, the lovely hue bedecks bouquets, dresses, decorations, and desserts, but it still maintains an aura of elegance and richness. For a classic look, pair a deep purple with blues and browns; for a modern edge, accent lavender with bright green or yellow. Either way, purple is sure to ignite the passion in you.
