3 STEPS TO STYLING YOUR WEDDING WITH PROPS
Now all of our small item inventory is on our website, it's easier than ever to hire props to help style your wedding!
Our team of stylists can help bring your vision to life. They can select pieces for you, make styling suggestions and set it all up on the day. However, if you opt just to hire and collect a selection of our props yourself, here are three simple steps to get the most out of your props:
Step 1: Where is it going?
If you're styling your ceremony, it doesn't mean props have to stay at the exact location. Think about where your guests will be later on. You can use lanterns to accent hallways and entrances or reuse your signing table and chairs for your wedding breakfast.
(Top Tip: why not repurpose your florals too? Aisle growing arrangements can be placed in front of your top table, and any ceremony arches or backdrops can be used behind your top table or even as a photo booth decoration)
Step 2: What is it doing?
You might think this is an obvious one. A rug is just a rug, right? But it can do much more than bringing a seating area together. You can use them to add drama to your aisle or to frame you and your partner stand to say 'I Do'. And think practicality. Do you need additional side tables for your cocktail lounge? Or an additional table to display your cake on perhaps.
Step 3: Who is it for?
If your wedding reception is in a large venue, you may have several lounge areas to accommodate children, and elderly guests or as a quiet retreat. Why not reinvent a space for different people throughout the day? A kid's corner won't be needed late at night so clear off the coffee table from crayons and reuse it as a rest spot for your dancing feet. We also recommend thinking about your outdoor space. A fire pit area with an abundance of throws and furs (and maybe smores!) is a great way to end an evening!

By considering the use of furniture throughout the day and the flow of your reception, you can map where your styling will be seen most. It might sound simple, but our three steps will help you make the most of your prop hire and continue a theme throughout your wedding.
