Blue & Red Wedding

Read all about Catriona’s & Roberts Blue & Red wedding day.

Catriona & Robert wanted to add a fun to their wedding day and chose to have a superhero themed wedding.

From the grooms bow tie to the brides garter every little detail had a nod to a superhero.

Whether they were from Marvel or DC legends, they were included.

Room Décor

After the church service in Streatley, the wedding reception was held at The co op club in Luton.

With the help from Catriona’s sister they made their own table centrepieces. Each one featured a different colour that went along with that superhero.

Everything else was then kept to blue & red which matched the guest’s invitations.

 I alternated the blue & red chair bows, which I set up the previous day with help from Vikki from your wedding friend.

It is sometimes so much easier and less stressful if you can get into your venue the day before. It is always worth asking.

Their exploding first dance balloon contained a mixture of blue & red balloons with red confetti and the top table balloon display was also a mixture of both colours.

I set up a table with a wishing well, wishing tree and personalised balloon blocks, again these contained a mixture of blue and red balloons with blue details added to the wishing well.

Catriona & Robert also booked my sweet cart, this also had blue details added to it. They decided on family favourite sweets and also gave me a list of sweets they didn’t like, so I wouldn’t include them.

Weddings with Creative Decorations

Balloon Decor

Giant wedding balloons

Make your big day extra special. with Wedding balloon decor – arches, balloon centerpieces and unique floating creations from Creative Decorations Balloons can transform any venue into one of beauty. Mix helium, foil, latex and double-bubble balloons. Leave them loose for the dancefloor, create a balloon path or balloon bouquets. Mr and Mrs balloons have proven to be extremely popular and create beautiful wedding images. The possibilities are endless!

Here’s a list of the all the types of wedding balloon decor I can provide:

Table Decoration
Candle centre pieces and flowers are lovely, but they can ruin the conversation on a table if the people across from each other can’t see who they are talking too. Instead, go for a helium filled bubble balloon to make an impact. You can easily tie them into your theme by having them filled with confetti in your colours or have them printed with the wedding date and couple’s names. By having them on a long piece of ribbon, it opens up the table for the guests to talk!

Dance Floor Back Drops
Helium filled letters are a cost-effective way to decorate your dance floor. Whether you want to spell “Mr & Mrs”, “LOVE” or maybe the date of the wedding They are a Creative way to personalise your venue. You could even have a balloon drop where a sea of balloons float over you and your new husband/wife during your first dance as Mr and Mrs!

Wedding balloon decor

Bouquets 
Step away from the normal flower and hoop bouquets and opt for something different to accompany you and your bridesmaids down the aisle.

For the Evening
Sparkler tunnels have become a very popular for wedding evenings and yes, they look great on Instagram, but be unique and break away from this trend and go for a dramatic balloon arch! They look wonderful.

We can also offer you a Sweetie Cart for your evening reception. This is always a huge hit for children and adults!

8 Reason To Visit Wedding Fairs

Wedding fairs range from the large national events attended by thousands, to small and intimate afternoons at local venues. Whether they are big or small, they are all worth a visit. As the bride, you can expect to be treated like a celeb from the moment you get there, and everyone will want to talk to YOU! It’s also a fab day out with your friends and family.

Here are 8 reasons to attend wedding fairs;

Amazing Suppliers!

Wedding fairs are full of suppliers with everything you need plus more for your big day!
It’s also a great way of seeing products and meeting people in real life, so you know exactly what you are getting. There is simply no other place to meet so many suppliers face-to-face, and many brides will book a supplier not just because their work looks amazing, but because they make a really good impression

Catwalk

Most wedding fairs have an amazing catwalk showcasing all the best dresses and designs for brides, grooms, bridesmaids and even mothers of the bride!

Bubbles!

A huge added bonus! There is usually a bar providing yummy prosecco or champagne for you to have a glass or three while you take a well-deserved rest from all that wedding browsing!

Tasty Cake

There will be lots of wedding cake suppliers at each wedding fair offering samples of their finest cake! Chocolate, strawberry and champagne are just some of the flavours you would expect to sample! There will be a few unique ones in there too if you fancy something a little more unusual. You will fall in love with flavours you didn’t even know existed and your cake will be unforgettable.

SALE!

Lots of wedding fairs will offer you a discounted rate for anything bought or booked on the day. You could save hundreds on your dress if you are feeling brave enough to buy one on the day. For a supplier, attending a wedding fair has to be worthwhile so many will prepare a special offer for the show too!

Inspiration

This is a great advantage of major fairs – there are so many suppliers, you’re bound to see a huge selection of all kinds of things, from stationery to honeymoons to hen do packages. You’ll see things you never even thought of before! Make sure you take lots of pictures of everything you like so you can look back at them when you get home.

Check Out Trends

Suppliers usually bring a selection of items to please everyone – both the traditional brides and the trendy ones. With so many displays in one place, it’ll be easy to see what’s hot and interesting right now and for next year. A great idea is to chat with the suppliers about what other brides are asking for – you’ll get tons of great suggestions you may not have thought about yourself.

Wedding fair Sweet Cart Ask!

Whether you attend a big or a small event, it’s a good idea to talk to as many suppliers as you can. If you see something you like, go for it – ASK!      Ask about them, ask about their experience, their best-selling products or services, suggestions, anything at all.

 

Creative Decorations will be attending the following wedding fairs this year.

Pop by and say hello for all of your Wedding Day Balloon and Sweetie Cart needs!
