Wedding inspiration from the shop

Wedding inspiration from the shop

June 4, 2014 0 By Nordic House

When we first opened Nordic House, we had no idea that our products would be so popular with people organising their weddings. But it’s been a real delight to see the orders flooding in for those looking to create the perfect Scandi look for their big day, and we’ve been equally well received by the very many lovely wedding magazines and bloggers too! I have to say that I LOVE a good wedding – nothing makes me happier than seeing two people starting their new lives together, and so it’s been a real delight and joy to be able to add sourcing wedding accessories to my buying trips! As always, I discover so many wonderful things and it’s a tricky process narrowing down my choices so that they reflect the very best of Scandi décor, and appeal to as many of you as possible.

On the shop, we’ve grouped our wedding items by colour scheme/theme: white; glass; metal; mercury silver (a personal fave!); and wood and stone, to help all you brides (and grooms!) to source the perfect finishing touches quickly and easily. I thought today it would be nice to share with you some of my favourite pieces from each theme, to give you a real flavour of our stunning products…

White Theme

Pierced Heart Tealight Holders

What could be better at the wedding breakfast than having these beauties flickering away on the table? With a smooth chalky white finish, these tealight holders come in two sizes and the hearts light up when lit.

Glass Theme

Rilled Glass Vase

One of my favourite looks for dining tables is wild flowers arranged in vases – it’s just perfect for creating an English country garden look at a wedding. This vase is made from strikingly thick rilled glass and looks stunning when brimming over with even the simplest of blooms.

Glass Bell Jar

Make wedding favours, candles or even floral arrangements look prized and special by placing them inside one of these blissfully simple mini glass domes.

Vintage Glass Candle Holder

If you’re after a slightly more ‘grand’ feel to your big day, then our timeless vintage-style candle holder is a real must-have. Create sophisticated displays by grouping several together, and combine them with other items such as our mercury-silvered range for authentic heirloom chic.

Metal Theme

Three-arm Candlelabra

Sleek and stylish, this silver metal three-arm candelabra makes the perfect table centerpiece for weddings, adding an elegant touch to your table setting. You can create a different look depending on the colour dinner candles you choose.

Huge Five-tier Cake Stand

The jewel in our wedding accessories crown! This enormous cake stand comprises five tiers, gradually diminishing in size towards the top. Each tier is made of solid glass with a silver metal rim and central stem. It’s ideal for creating a stunning centrepiece, whether that’s with cakes, flowers, candles or even creating a wishing tree!

bonbonnier_nordic_house

Stylish Bonbonnier 

Use this pretty silver tiered stand to display any treat you can imagine, from petit-fours and sweeties to tealights and flowers. A graceful addition to each guest table, this bonbonnier will create an elegant focal point at wedding parties!

Mercury Silver Theme

antique_tealights_nordic_house

Antique White Tealights

True showstoppers! The interior of these gorgeous tealights is rilled to reflect and intensify the glow of the flame inside, and the white outside is warm and inviting lit or unlit. Choose from two sizes, and combine them together as you like – the effect will be magical. Perfect for winter weddings too!

bark_candles_nordic_house

Nordic Bark Candles

These rustic, atmospheric candles with a wonderfully thick textured woody bark layer, are one of our best sellers and would look really fabulous at an outdoors wedding! Stunning on a candle tray in groups of mixed sizes. Scatter some pinecones around to complete the look…

birdcage_nordic_house

Handmade Wooden Bird Cage

Our beautiful Scandi bird cage is another of our popular wedding products. Each one is handmade and purely decorative, ready to be filled with plants, moss or found treasures.

Fill it with fairy lights for a magical centrepiece… or alternatively, use as a place for guests to leave their cards!

As always, these are just a few of my favourite pieces from each theme… to see our entire wedding collection, take a look at the shop. I’m just back from my latest buying trip, so there will be lots of exciting new things in our next collection that I’ll be able to share with you soon too!

If you’re in the middle of planning your wedding at the moment, you’ll find plenty of inspiration on décor and themes on the Nordic House Pinterest page… Have you used any Nordic House products on your big day? If so, do share them with me on our Facebook page – I’d so love to see them!
