5 Festive Ways to Use Bunting in Your Wedding

Looking for a way to create a festive atmosphere full of fun? Perhaps you're in the midst of planning your wedding or maybe you're the maid of honor and you're looking for a way to liven up a shower you're planning for the bride-to-be? Whatever the case may be, I happen to think that bunting is a really fun way to achieve a festive feeling when it comes to dressing up a space. And who would have imagined that there were so many ways to use bunting? Whether you overlap your bunting or drape it from the ceiling, one thing is for sure... It's a simple way to add a touch of fun!

I don't know about you, but I love the looks of this space and I can imagine that this blue decor would look absolutely beautiful for a shower!

Planning a simple outdoor affair? Unimpressed by the lack of ambiance? Why not drape bunting from a tented ceiling? It's an easy and inexpensive way to add a little color!

I love the example above because it shows you how you can use bunting in an elegant setting. Often times I think people reserve this type of decor for more of a casual setting. But it's not necessary if you ask me! As you can see, these little pops of color really add to the reception.

Looking for another way that you can use bunting in your wedding? Why not have your baker incorporate it into your wedding cake design?

It's little details like these that will truly add a touch of fun and whimsy to your wedding or event. So what do you think about this type of decor? Are you seeing how bunting can instantly transform a wedding reception or party? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
