When planning a wedding or party it is often the tiny details that end up being the most remembered part of the day. In this last post about our boho inspired wedding, we are going to share what we consider the most memorable details from our inspirational styled shoot.

1. Make them smile.

This stunning stand alone 8'x8' handmade paper flower backdrop created by Confetti and Bows just makes you want to smile. 

A single chair, a hand lettered sign and a few photo props set off to one side of the floral backdrop invite guests to hang out and snap a few photos. The hand lettering on the mirror and the sweet Posecards were by Love Lettering. A couple of flasks and mini paper flowers make fun photo props as well.

2. Best favours ever.

If you have the time, what could be more personal than creating or wrapping your wedding favours yourself? 

You can find the DIY tutorial for these mini mason jar favours in this post

Simple (and inexpensive) white gift boxes look amazing when you place real, silk or paper flowers on top. Keep the flowers in place using satin ribbon. Alicia's Infinity designed the custom sticker to match her wedding stationery.

3. Family matters.

We added personal touches to the gift table by displaying "something old (photo of the groom's grandparents), something new (acrylic wishing well), something borrowed (vintage cake topper from bride's grandparents) and something blue (ribbon tied around the photo)". The acrylic wishing well was personalized by Doris from Love Lettering with a hand lettered message and floral design.

4. Add a little gold. 

The white hobnail vases were given a modern boho "dipped in gold" effect by masking off the bottom of each vase with torn edge painters tape before spraying on the gold metallic paint. Periwinkle Flowers was inspired by the watercolour flowers, succulents and foliage in the wedding invitations. 

Gold was added to the "best day ever" cake topper on the wedding cake. You can find the DIY tutorial for how to add the gold in this post.

We placed gold and white paper lanterns, watermelon round paper lanterns, balloons, and tissue & mylar tassels around the venue to highlight the different stations at the reception.

Add a few special details to your sweetheart table by adding hand lettered details to glass domed containers and beverage containers. White hobnail vases are given a golden touch with spray paint that is applied to look like they were dipped in gold paint.
