Wight wedding themes

Birds of a feather...

Easter is fast becoming a hot favourite for wedding days, when you think about the longer days and reduced venue rates you can understand why. But, planning a wedding at this time of year is also beneficial because of the enormous opportunity for elegant wedding themes. Brighter colours start to make their way into retail arenas after the dark winter and people are raring to get the summer started. New life is a go-go around Easter too, so there is plenty to inspire and be joyful about.

One of the most popular wedding themes of recent time has been ‘birds’. What better time to champion this theme than March or April, when there is no shortage of eggs and chicks?

We’ve taken a look at how people are incorporating our feathered friends into their weddings in ways that are chic (k) and unqiue. Many of these ideas could be DIT projects, but if you fancy a bit of help we know a few professionals who would be perfect:

Cake are a really sweet and simple way of making a statement on your wedding day.
For help with IOW wedding cakes we know a number of exceedingly good bakers. 
Finishing Touches may also help you source a couple of tweety toppers like these.

If you've ever fancied yourself a talented basket weaver, making your own centrepieces could be a perfect outlet for such creativity. If not, but you'd be keen to have something similar to this bird's nest display for your Isle of Wight Wedding day, Nic might be the perfect person to talk to when it comes to flowers.

'Please be seeded' but only if you can trust that your guests won't think they are a tasty treat to enjoy before dinner! If bird feeder favours like the one above are your thing, make use of your hen party guests and get your girlfriends involved in making a batch yourself. 

Whilst your mates are at it, why not have a go at creating some birdy garlands like these? If you lot are too busy with the prosecco, you could always outsource to the stags. Isle of Wight event decoration business Inspired Island Events may also have a few time saving ideas.

Wedding stationery is the perfect means of setting out your wedding theme and setting the tone of your big bird themed day. Our Island wedding stationery specialist, Wight Creations could help you ensure the pigeon carrier has something serioulsy beautiful to deliver.

I Heart Buttons would be able to help you out if you're having trouble finding the perfect bird themed button hole.
Feather's are a great way of subtly reinforcing the theme and are cheaper than fresh flowers.

Personalise would be a perfect choice when it comes to professional, unique place names and table settings, but if you fancy having a go yourself, try something simple like the birdy above.

With all themes, remember that less is usually more!

If you've had a go at creating your own bird themed decor we'd love to hear all about it.
