Lately I’ve been seeing a growing trend with Irish weddings where a lot of extra details and effort has gone into the decorating of their venue. It had me wondering how I might decorate the interior of my Castle Wedding.
The weddings that stand out to me are the ones where the bride and groom have injected a little bit of their personality into their day. At the moment I’m loving unique ways of displaying table flowers as well as sweet and simple table decorations. I’ve been inspired by a lot of diy projects that are available out there and recently have been checking out second hand goods at car-boot sales for all those quirky vases and picture frames.
How pretty are these little glitter placenames?! and an illustrated menu is right up my street, don’t be surprised if that pops up somewhere on my tables.. The whole table just looks so decadent and Parisian french, I wouldn’t want my guests to touch anything!!
I love these Fruit and veg crates on a table, who would have thought! but the textural combination of rough wooden boxes with soft peaches and petals adds real character to your standard table setting.
I’m not sure what to do yet but I think I’m going to steer clear of using your standard black on white table numbers. Of course with my love of paper and art I’m biased but I think the floral art nouveau style table numbers below are gorgeous, such a lovely touch if kept with muted colours or to tie in with a theme. The botanical illustration table number is a similar idea too, really liking the vintage appearance they have.
I’m not sure where I would find those old tins that hold the flowers but I was drawn to them because of the turquoises and golds, if anyone has ideas let me know! I think they would brighten up tables and mantlepieces.

Below is a table used to display a wedding cake or cupcakes, I might find an old table like this second hand online or at a car boot sale. My Fiance can be in charge of painting it…
That little sign coming out of the trumpet is so cute! although not much point if the head table is facing a wall, which I think mine is…BUT I might invent another use for it!

Below are a collection of images I thought were really inspiring, a couple of which would be easy to do myself. I think that cut out place name holder could be applied to anything, even a flower. Check out how to make these yourself via the link below. The same goes for the other images too like the music sheet, that could be more related to my wedding theme but it’s more the idea of adding a splash of colour to under plain white plates. I think we can agree that all girls like candles at their wedding to add a bit of atmosphere, so here is someone who went all out!
