Wedding décor ideas to wow your guests

Whether you're planning a rustic, festival, or fairy-tale wedding, SoGlosWeddings finds delightful décor inspiration for styling your venue.

From floral bunting and twinkling fairy lights to impressive ice sculptures and décor so good you could eat it, SoGlosWeddings looks at inspiring ways to transform any wedding venue.

Spanning elaborate arrangements, simple but eye-catching touches, and everything in-between, there are endless possibilities to inspire creative couples.


Blow-up characters, archways, confetti-filled and personalised printed balloons all add the wow factor to weddings without breaking the bank. Whether it’s inflatable letters, sophisticated silver arrangements or silly shapes, there are endless options for every couple, with The Giant Balloon Company perfect for inspiration.


Spell out names, words and special sentiments in giant letters, with choices spanning lights, balloons, rustic wooden displays and much more. Promising a great backdrop for photos, letter décor provides the perfect way to personalise a wedding venue, with Aisle Hire It's products an inspiring starting point for garnering ideas.


Perfect for adding the final touch to a marquee or enhancing that rustic vibe, wedding bunting can offer personalised messages or simply provide additional décor, with House of Bunting bursting with handmade and quality products. Whether couples are partial to floral designs, springtime colours or a quintessentially British design, there are plenty of ideas – and for that festival feel, larger flags are an eye-catching option.


Light up the venue – literally – with some dazzling lighting decorations, with Bisley Marquees able to provide an impressive selection of indoor and outdoor items. Whether it’s ornate chandeliers, twinkling fairy lights, hanging lanterns, or romantic candlelight, it’s the perfect way to keep the venue sparkling into the evening.


A classic way to decorate a wedding venue which can be adapted for each couple, floral arrangements can be either traditional or original. From fabulous floral centrepieces and simple vase arrangements to elaborate archways, flowers provide delightful décor whatever the season. And for blooming inspiration, see SoGlosWeddings' Gloucestershire suppliers.


What better way to add a personal touch than with a special sign, whether it shows a meaningful message, details of the newlyweds, or simply directs guests to the ceremony and subsequent celebrations. Cotswold Vintage Party Hire is perfect for inspiring ideas, and with wooden hangings, signposts, menus, and seating plans, the signage can be as useful or frivolous as couples wish.


Chocolate fountains, decadent sweet tables and show-stopping cakes can provide deliciously good décor which, along with looking great, is sure to delight guests. Whether perfectly piped cupcakes, macaron mountains, chocolate portraits or sculptures from Food is Art to tickle your taste buds, edible decorations are literally so good you could eat them.

For creating picture perfect wedding breakfast tables, centrepieces are key, and the possibilities endless when creating eye-catching arrangements to complement a couple’s big day, with Hanamai Dream perfect for inspiration. From floating candles, ornate vases and floral arrangements, to candelabras and small sculptures, couples can opt for sweet and simple or extravagant decorations.

Vintage china

Make a wedding breakfast more memorable with fine china crockery and decorative pieces, offering an opulent way to dress the dining area. And while tableware allows a fine dining experience, vases, sculptures and high tea sets are ideal for creating a splendid sight, with providing an extensive range of products.

Chair covers

Bright bows, lovely lace from Wedding Creations, Mr and Mrs signs, and elaborate dressings all add that special touch to an otherwise ordinary chair. Whether it’s marking the newlyweds’ seats at the head table, or decorating chairs for the wedding party, pretty covers offer an easy way to add colour and personality to a venue.


For capturing guests’ attention, a show-stopping piece is the answer. Impressive ice sculptures, wishing wells, or fountains, are just some of the options for creating a spectacular effect and transforming a wedding venue from ordinary to extraordinary.
