7. Umbrellas
Now, why didn't anyone think of this sooner? These supersized cocktail paper umbrellas (or at least, we like to think of them that way) look like an absolute dream mounted on a ceremonial arch.

8. Books and Paper
Tell your personal love story by layering handwritten love letters, paper receipts or by stacking your favourite books on top of one another for a backdrop that spells fairytale romance. We also love wallpaper backrops and ones crafted from colourful streamers or wax paper.08 01

9. Lace and Crochet
Lace and crochet never fail to add a touch of understated elegance to any wedding. Bring them to the 21st century by wrapping them around layered frames and tree branches.

10. Feathers
We are absolutely loving gold-dipped ANYTHING here at TWS, and feathers are no exception. Create a feathered mural on the wall or drape them on branches for a bohemian effect.

11. Woven Rope
Woven or knotted rope curtains look right at home at rustic bohemian or beach weddings. And you don't even have to be an expert knot tier to pull this look off!

12. Nature
Nothing compares to saying your vows amidst nature's best. The grandeur of the forest will have you rushing to go au naturale.
