With your wedding plans underway it’s time you take a step back and consider how you will transform your venue into your dream wedding. As with any theme you need to get the foundation just right, this means picking the right accessories, décor and fabric. When it comes to recreating your favourite city the secret is to create texture by incorporating the use of different industrial materials. Today, we show you our favourite go-to items to bring your chic city wedding theme to life.
We can’t get enough of our Bistro Bliss personalised canvas. With its fantastic modern appeal, from the soft yet robust texture and the industrial font used to personalise it, it is the perfect backdrop for your ceremony, top table or photo booth. We love adding a few extra touches to give the canvas more depth and complete the look; and we can’t stop bragging about our new string of light blubs. These extraordinary battery powered lights are the must have city chic accessory. Just drape across the backdrop, your top table or even place them in a large glass vase for the ultimate picture of city chic.
Add some height with our tin and blackboard boxes. With combination of metal and stone is the perfect combination for this theme. We just love using the boxes in different sizes and placing them on top of each other to create height we need, and because they’re boxes with lids you can fill the gaps with large flowers. But what makes these boxes extra special? You can use the chalk board on the side to leave your guests a little message.
We’re passionate about finding new and unique ways to thank your friends and family who’ve helped make your day possible. Take our vintage inspired glass flasks. Their distinct style makes them the perfect gift for your theme, don’t forgot to add a perosnalised message. We know for a fact they will be a hit especially when you add their favourite tipple.
Another trick to adding the perfect finishing touches to your city themed wedding, is taking the traditional and giving it a modern twist, and that’s exactly what we did with our onyx black cake serving set. The sleek and minimalist design in black resembles the texture of slate and is so elegant you’ll want to use it time and time again.
The tiniest details make a world of difference, which is why we urge you to add our oval tin tags to your table decor. Whether you use them as place cards or tags for your wedding favours, their unique metallic style is everything you will need to give your city theme that added oomph and will show your guests the extra mile you have gone to make your theme as authentic.
The beauty of a city themed wedding is you can keep it simple and yet achieve the style you want. This is why we love our mini tin favour boxes.
