Three Creative Wedding Decor Ideas

Three Creative Wedding Decor Ideas

This post is sponsored by Archive Rentals. All opinions are my own.

It's so secret that I love weddings. There was a time, not long ago at all, when wedding planning and event management was a big part of my job as a restaurant manager. Even though I've left that job to write full-time, I am still surrounded by wedding planning! With my friends all in their late-twenties and early-thirties, it seems like it is perpetually wedding season in our lives.

My experience in the industry, and love of weddings in general, has gotten me into the thick of wedding planning with my engaged friends. Whether I'm shopping at Kleinfeld's or Googling wedding rentals, I love being a part of the process. 

Nowadays, modern millennial brides are looking for ways to incorporate their creativity and personal style into their wedding day. Here at the blog, I'm all about finding ways to include creativity in every aspect of life, and that includes weddings. That's why I've teamed up with Archive Rentals, a Los Angeles wedding rentals company, to bring you three creative wedding decor ideas.

A Camper Bar

A major wedding trend right now is casual weddings with a backyard camping vibe. Light up a bonfire, hang some fairy lights from the trees, and serve your cocktails in style with a unique Camper Bar. This rental is perfect for an outdoorsy Los Angeles wedding reception and will set the tone for that trendy rustic theme. This is one speciality feature that your guests are sure to remember for years!

A Unique Lighting Feature

Everyone expects to see floral decor at a wedding but don't underestimate the power of a budget-friendly and creative lighting feature. A lighting feature is a unique way of creating a focal point in your reception room and tying your wedding decor together with both atmosphere and style. Whether you're looking for a glamorous chandelier for a ball-room reception or a rustic lighting feature for a vintage-style party, this wedding rental can help express your personal style.

A Special Wall

One of the most important wedding rentals to consider is the backdrop for your ceremony. To express your unique creativity while saying your vows, opt for a special wall feature. The crate wall pictured above is great addition to that rustic Los Angeles wedding style and offers endless opportunities for customization. For brides looking for a barn wedding in an urban setting, consider renting a classic wood-panelled barn wall. Another great benefit of including a special wall in your ceremony is that it can later provide a unique backdrop for photographs during the reception. 

With so many gorgeous and creative wedding rentals available, it's easier than ever to incorporate your personality and style into your special day. If you're in Los Angeles, make sure you check out Archive Rentals; their site is full of beautiful and creative elements that would be stunning at any wedding.
