Are you and your partner total audiophiles? Well, why not incorporate your love of music into your wedding day? Yes, making a killer playlist is an essential part of that, but you can also use your obsession to inspire your decor. From decking out your ceremony pieces with some swoon-worthy verses to topping your cake with your favourite lyrics, there are plenty of ways to use songs to your advantage.
Here are a few ways to use lyrics in your wedding decor.
Forget about plain ‘ol carpet, walk across your favourite song as you head to the altar. You can have a calligrapher (or talented friend) hand paint the lyrics onto canvas, or, if you’re willing to pony up the extra cash, get the words printed right onto a stretch of linen. Feel free to go with something a little lengthier - you’ve got plenty of space on an aisle runner.
Follow this couple’s lead and create signs in place of traditional floral aisle markers. You probably want to find something uber romantic for this one, your guests will totally be snapping pictures.
Your backdrop will be the focal point of your altar, so, naturally, you want it to look amazing. While you could follow Kimye’s lead and bolster yours with tons of blooms, this is a great opportunity to share the words to “your song” with your guests. Not only does a handwritten backdrop look stunning (see evidence above), but it’ll also infuse your altar with more meaning.
Gone are the days when you were expected to top you wedding cake with pint-sized versions of you and your fiancé(e). Into trying something a bit more modern? Lyrics are an awesome way to spruce up the smallest tier of your cake. Find a line that you love, a killer font and your confection will look totally Instagram-worthy.
Sweetheart Chair Signs
Want to give your sweetheart table that extra oomph? Skip going for the classic “bride” and “groom” signs and use some of your favourite lyrics, instead. You’ll want to keep things short and sweet here, like this couple who used a line from The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey”.
