At Tumbleweed Events we believe an Arch is a staple piece, which dates back well into the history of weddings. An Arch is such a vercitle peice which can be used in different ways at both a ceremony and reception, creating a simple backdrop with great impact. The Arch represents the coming together of 2 posts as one as newlyweds. The style, finish and colour of an Arch has the ability to create many different affects in a space. By adding flowers and drapes an Arch becomes an extremly sophisticated wedding decoration.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. This is a very personal question one which ties into your personality. Some couples prefer to decorate their venue with a large variety of decor whilst other couples prefer the more simplistic look. Our recommendation at Romy’s Rustics is the option that represents you as a couple. In terms of the must haves centrepieces, Mr & Mrs sign and a Wishing Well is a great start.


Good luck for your big day

What great suggestions you've been getting, I think too as long as your guest have fun and have the memories to look back on so good photos are important.

 Why not light up your reception with a brightly lit LOVE sign, looks stunning in front of your wedding table and is an awsome back drop for your first dance with your LOVE as husband and wife. Light up an outdoor garden for photos under the moonlight with LOVE glisting in the back ground.

  Good luck and have fun planning

The most common decorations you would have a centerpiece for guest tables and bridal

table. Depending on your budget you can add nice cake table that will stand out, sitting chart, welcome sign, wishing well decorations. You can definitely go from very simple and elegant to the WOW factor, like long guest tables with Tiffany chairs, dance floor with decal etc. The other factor is depending on the venue and how much or how little decorations they already have. 

It all depends on your budget and what you like for your special day. Hope this helps!

You can have as little or as much as you like! The basics include table decorations for the guest and bridal table, a welcome sign, seating chart and a gift area/table. Your decoration requirements will depend on your venue, what they supply and if some decorations are included in their wedding packages. 

For example, one of our venues is a Golf Club and they include our ceiling draping, chair covers and sashes, skirting for the bridal, cake and gift table and a basic seating chart.

The most common decorations that clients book on top of this is their guest table centrepieces, bridal table decorations, a wishing well and candles for the gift table and a backdrop for behind the bridal table. 

I think the best thing for you to do, is if you have already booked your venue, have a chat with the coordinator and see what decorations are commonly used at that venue. In saying that, don't be afraid to be a little different! There are so many ways you can personallise your wedding whether it be by having a donut wall instead of dessert, or a polaroid guestbook. 

If you are on a budget, why not incorporate your bridesmaid's bouquets in the decorations on the bridal table?

It is completely dependant on your style and theme - you may be more minimilistic and go for simple flowers in mason jars, or you may want elaborate flower arches and and large illuminated signs.  Either way - you just want to make sure that you and your partner love the decorations - don't worry about everyone else.  

There are a few things that will make the day a little easier - signs for where the ceremony / reception will take place, a sign or blackboard with the day and evenings events, vases or jars for flowers, some photo frames to have a few cute pictures of the couple, extra table decorations for other areas (such as the cake table. bar and signing table), and some blankets if your guests are going to be outdoors for any length of time.

The list is endless - just go for things that you both love :)

This is a very good question.  This all depends on the 'style' you are going for.  Ofcourse, everything needs to photograph well and if it creates a feeling of bliss, then you know your on the right track.  Decorations may include, Standing features, such as flower walls and standing blooms.  Other decor may include center table decor, decor for signage boards and photo booth.  It's all about creating the right feel for your special day.
