We love this idea and again it’s so easy but do check with your church and your wedding venue first, especially Castle wedding venues and Stately Home wedding venues!

All you need is to create your own heart stencil, then scatter flour onto the stencil on any kind of surface to make the floors LOVELY.

Lavender ConfettiLavender Confetti

This one takes some pre-thought and again a creative will, but it makes that beautiful confetti moment all the more special. Dry reams of lavender then crumble the buds to create your own confetti. If you have the time and patience, small, personalised pouches can be made for guests to pick up and keep. Alternately, you could heap the lavender into one large basket for guests to simple dig into and throw.

If you are up for a particular challenge, or have an exceptionally creative friend, this one can really demonstrate your care and gratitude to your guests. Hearts can be made from salt-dough or clay and individually hand-stamped with your guest’s names. The best bit is that they can take them away afterwards.

SignageSignage
A wonderful way of acknowledging the lengths your guests have gone to, to be there for you is hand making a sign post. This one pictured was made from remnants of wood at a farm and hand painted by the bride and her godmother. It lists the various places people had travelled from. Stand your signpost at the entry of your reception for guests to see.

Again you could source individual postcards yourself from your favourite places, siting your favourite art, things or people. Just make sure you indicate where guests leave them once filled out!
