1. Is your wedding and reception being held indoors, outdoors or a bit of both? (In other words, is your ceremony being held outside and the reception inside, or vice versa?)

2. Do you want to have a “peasant”-style wedding theme, where you, your wedding party and guests dress simply, or are you envisioning a grander style, more in keeping with “royalty”?

Deciding on what your sub-theme should be will help you focus on the type of decorations you will need. For a royalty-type wedding, your decorations would obviously be more elaborate and “rich” looking, with deep rich color tones.

For a peasant-style wedding, you should keep things simplistic and rustic. For example, use wildflowers, earthen type pottery, and rustic type lanterns.

Depending on the location and style that you decide upon, you will need to look at different decorating options. That’s not to say you can’t mix and match. By all means, if you find an idea that really appeals to you, use it no matter what the location. Be sure to jot down any ideas that come to you for future reference.
Ideas come and go so fast, you’ll want to record them as soon as possible. Wedding favors and decorations are only limited by your imagination, so mix and match, and have fun creating your own unique ideas.

      Metal lanterns with tea lights inside. Some greenery and flowers around it maybe. Or plastic gems scattered here and there if you are going for nobility.

    Hi Mandy have you tried contacting guinevere’s dreams? Gail runs a small company specialising in medieval gowns and events organising. I’m sure she could give you some ideas and she’s not too expensive
