Bunting Ideas For A Country Wedding

When you’re planning your big day, the wedding decorations that you choose really make all the difference. Bunting is the perfect option. We adore seeing our barns decorated with gorgeous lengths of wedding bunting but that’s not all it’s perfect for. You can use bunting in a myriad of ways and there are more style options that you might think. Here are some of our favourite wedding ideas that are ideal for your barn wedding at Upwaltham Barns in the heart of the Sussex countryside.

Wedding Bunting Ideas

Bunting is so popular at Upwaltham Barns and with good reason. The country, rustic, vintage feel of bunting works so well in this natural setting and we love seeing our barns dressed to perfection.

Whether you make or hire your wedding decorations, when it comes to bunting, you can use any colour or pattern that you like to create the atmosphere that you want. Pastel coloured or patterned vintage fabric gives a gloriously country vibe while neutral coloured bunting can be super elegant. Bright colours also look amazing and of course, the joy of bunting is that you can choose any combination you like!

We are incredibly happy to have a selection of talented and creative wedding décor companies on our recommended supplier list who can help make your wedding ideas come to life. These lovely people have so many ideas, props and details for you so please ask us for their details if you’d like their advice or assistance.

Alternative ideas for wedding bunting

Of course, you can do much more with bunting and using more details throughout your day gives a wonderful country look. These are some of the wedding ideas that we love:

Create a table plan with a bunting motif on your plan and other wedding day stationery.

Personalised lengths of bunting that spell out your new married names make brilliant chair back decorations for your wedding breakfast. Use mini bunting as a cake topper or to create your table names and numbers – attach the bunting to lengths of dowelling or even striped paper straws and insert them in your cake or tablecentres for DIY wedding decorations.

Add bunting to your wedding props to make them even prettier. It’s easy to attach bunting to cake tables, vintage bikes and much more.

Hang family photos of prints of you both from string or ribbon to create photo bunting. This is a fabulously alternative way to display your favourite pics at your ceremony.

Lengths of ribbon in various sizes and colours make a really vibrant form of bunting.

Tissue paper tassel garlands are another style of bunting that we love to see. You can make these yourself in any combination of colours.

Remember that you can make bunting from ANYTHING – how about pegging bags of sweets or crisps to some twine for deliciously edible bunting that turns your favours into fantastic decorations! This works particularly well in The Stable Bar.
