a flitter flutter of butterfly wedding style
Yesterday I came across a gorgeous wedding blog post on Rock My Wedding where the bride had a beautiful butterfly hair accessory made by her talented sister. I love anything nature-inspired, as I’m sure you’re all beginning to realise, so this just made my wedding mind spiral in excitement. Rather than a colour scheme or venue location holding the whole day together, why not opt for a beautiful and dainty insect like the butterfly?
There’s a handful of wedding stationers out there who incorporate the winged creature into their graphic design. One of my favourites is the Butterflies Wedding Stationery Range by Honeymilk Stationery featuring an antique illustration of two butterflies. Other possible options include the monochrome Flutterby Wedding Invites and Place Cards by Chandler Invitations that come with a pretty metal stencil butterfly, the romantic Butterfly Wedding Invitation by Cavania, the Butterfly Letterpress Wedding Invitation by Letterpress Design and the patterned Save The Date Butterfly Cards by Little Cherub Design that will truly announce your wedding in style.
Follow in the footsteps of the lovely bride from Rock My Wedding by completing your wedding hairstyle with a Bridal Butterfly Comb by sophiei. Made from individually-wired small and large feather butterflies, it adjusts to fit. There’s also a multi-colour option for those who prefer a bit of colour or are looking for the perfect bright accessories for their bridesmaids. Complete your wedding day look with a Butterfly Necklace by Harriet Bedford or the Butterfly Necklace – Silver by Nina Osborne. Both are beautifully handmade in a silver, feminine design making them a timeless piece of jewellery you can wear time and time again.
Give your bridesmaids a butterfly motif accessory that they can always remember your special day by. The Butterfly Bangle by Silver Kitsune makes a lovely personalised gift with a whole array of charms to pick from. And where would your girlfriends be without purses to keep all of their makeup essentials for touch-ups throughout the day? The Butterfly Metal Clasp Purse by Bleuet Textiles would be ideal as it’s printed on silk for a totally glam finish. Or the Metallic Butterfly Embroidered Clutch Bag by Little Birdie would make just as big an impact.
wedding decorations and finishing touches
Sprinkle butterflies all over your venue for an ultimate butterfly ball your guests will love to attend. Gigi & flo have a lovely collection of framed butterflies in a variety of species that would make a great alternative to the norm table numbers and names. Pick a different type for each table for a really pretty display. Or there’s the Framed Vintage Butterfly Print by Velvet Ribbon that’s just as stylish.
Use the Butterfly White Wedding Table Accessories by Beautiful Day for name cards and place on the rim of wine glasses for an elegant finish. Another option is the Set Of Three Graphic Gift Tags by McDonough & Davies, one including a lovely printed butterfly, that can be tied around glasses or cutlery.
Decorate the tables with Butterfly Confetti, Ceramic Votives filled with tea lights and sweet treats in Butterfly Cupcake Wrappers. For favours, the Wedding Favour Wildflower Seeds Pack Of Five by cherrygorgeous are a great eco-friendly option or if you have more of a sweet tooth, then the Biscuit Butterfly Shortbread by Shortbread Gift Company would be perfect.
