Decor That Goes from the Wedding Sanctuary to Your Personal Sanctuary

Many people dream of a spring wedding, and it’s the most common time of year that couples choose to get married for plenty of good reasons, the biggest of which is that the weather is always great, allowing for outdoor ceremonies and receptions that wouldn’t have been comfortable for guests even a month before.

Using decor at your reception that you can later use in your home is a great and functional way to go about choosing your decor. It’ll save you money in the long run as well! Paul Michael Company did just that recently at a wedding very close to us –  Paul’s youngest daughter just got married! So of course, we incorporated lots of goodies from PMC that will fit in fantastically inside the newlyweds’ home now that the ceremony is over.

  • Memories in a Bottle – Do you have a memory of a special get-a-way that the two of you took, such as a tropical vacation? Try creating center pieces out of vintage wine or liquor bottles. Inside fill them half way with sand and sea shells or coral, then gently fill with water and place short stemmed flower arrangements with draping delicate fern fronds inside.
  • Fish Bowls – For something a little on the whimsical, side try small fish bowls with a pair of gold fish in each one. Decorate the bowls with colored glass marbles, colored sand or river rock. Make each one different to draw people from table to table.
  • Unusual Finds- Look for a variety of items that tell a part of your story as a couple.  Use these to decorate each table a little differently in a way that is still personal to you.
