Funny enough I’ve only ever used bunting at a wedding once. It was my very first wedding I styled after my own. Bride Claudia had a very small budget for her intimate Yacht Club wedding, so I used what I had in stock to dress up the very simple room. Tassels of red and white checked fabric saved the day. With the help of my styling side kick Rupa, we made over 60 meters of tassel bunting in only 4 days. It was quite an achievement and bit of an eye opener to just how time consuming this process was.
While I was researching trends and decor ideas for my own wedding, bunting was hot on the wish list. It seemed to be one of the most popular ideas among the wedding blogs and Pinterest back in 2012. Roll on 3 years and it can still be seen at many UK weddings. It’s a budget friendly favourite and depending on the venue, it’s almost guaranteed to look nice and brighten up a simple space.
So because I can I did a little research and pulled together some pretty images from Pinterest. My absolute favourite is the image of the square bunting created with a variety of different printed fabrics. I’m also a fan of bird prints, which is why I was sold on this particular image. Just saying 🙂
