Best Double-Duty Wedding Decorations
From the engagement shower to the after-party, these fun decor items can be on rotation throughout all of your wedding planning.
Giant balloons are all the rage, and we love the versatility that comes with them. They’re a festive addition to engagement photos and lend whimsical romance to a plain ceremony background. Buying them in bulk means you can play around with monograms or different words for each party.
Want to dress up a bare wall but don’t have the time (or budget!) for a big installation? A cluster of paper rosettes is the perfect solution. Hang them in a pattern or disperse them like polka dots. If you have trouble sticking them to rough surfaces like a brick wall, suspend them from the ceiling with transparent fishing line instead.
Giant Balloons with Tassels
Nothing says “best day ever” quite like huge balloons with playful fringe. Coordinate the tassels with your wedding colors so the balloons can double as sweetheart table decor after the post-ceremony photos.
Nostalgic Gumball Machine
Looking for that perfect finishing touch to your candy bar, dessert table or cake display? A nostalgic gumball machine adds just the right amount of charm. It can even be reused for parties to come! We love the miniature Knot Shop versions, perfectly portioned for take-home favors and, later, kitchen counter top decor.
A seamless way to incorporate your wedding colors into the cocktail bar? Simply add straws—so low-maintenance and fun. Use a few different colors to make it easier for guests to keep track of their drinks. Aardvark straws have the added bonus of bending like plastic straws and they’re 100 percent compostable.
Whether you’re saying “yes” to the dress or making a grand exit, there are so many wedding milestones that merit confetti. These plastic poppers can be reused, so you can re-stuff them from the engagement to the after-party.
Tissue Paper Tassels
A garland of tassels is an inexpensive and totally customizable way to string up some extra decor—whether it be between trees, suspended behind a cake display or used as a photo booth backdrop. Opting for a garland kit gives you the freedom of doing it yourself without the added pressure of making it from scratch.
Calligraphed Cake Toppers
Calligraphy-style cake toppers have been popping up with so many fun phrases, from “The Best Is Yet to Come” to “Happily Ever After”. Now, with Moon and Luna’s brand-new line of wedding and party decor, the calligraphy on your cake topper can also coordinate with signage for table numbers, a guest book station, a cocktail bar or a gift table.
