In a world of social media, fresh ideas matter, and Lauren Gregory from Lullaby Weddings believes it’s the finer details which guests remember most at weddings. Here she tells us why and gives us some ideas for creating those little “wow” moments…
Today’s brides tend to have Pinterest accounts and access to so many images online that it’s often part of our job to whittle down the possibilities and start work on the ones we think will create impact and become most personal to the client.
“At Lullaby Inc, we don’t believe in “themes” as such, but always start with one “item”, be it a certain flower, a bird, a motto, a letter, and work outwards from there – it becomes the seed from which the tree grows.”
Here are some ideas of finishing touches guaranteed to make your wedding day extra special.

Less is often more, but classic creams and ivory can be given instant wow factor when you splash in some specific bold colour pops with decor, dress, food or drinks. Don’t be afraid to use colourful accesories across the board, just be minful of colour combos and splash the colour sparingly – too much and you will end up with a carnival look. A few coordinated yet subtle touches are usually enough to make the statment.
Streamers, paper bags, canap cartons, confetti – paper can offer the most attractive and cost-effective solution to your big day, so never underestimate its potential. It’s also easy to customise and even DIY ahead of the big day.
The modern day wedding guest tends to know their cocktails, but will never have tasted one bespoke to you. You can opt for Lullaby Inc crew to create personalised cocktails for welcome drinks, speeches, or for the wedding bar. Not only they will add that personal and unique touch to your day, but they can a brilliant ice-breaker too!
Imagine all the fun coctail tasting ahead of the day as well – win win in our books!
Particularly at sit down wedding breakfasts, it’s good to keep your guests busy so the conversation flows. It could be an activity, a message book, a DJ request card. It’s a great way to involve your guests in a way that allows them to play their part in your big day.
These are such easy and inexpensive ways of making a statment at your wedding day; why not cahnnel your inner creative and give it a try?
