Do-It-Yourself Wedding Decorations

It’s that special time of year again: Wedding Season! You probably have several to attend, and maybe even a few to help plan. There is no need to hire a decorator when you are already on the case! If you are looking for some cute and easy ways to decorate and accessorize the wedding, then it is time to talk ribbon.

The Bride

The undisputed most important part of the wedding is the bride. For her hair, opt for a ribbon headband. With so many color options, you can match the headband perfectly to the dress- even if she is wearing yellow ivory. To give it a little more sparkle, you can add some crystals or pearls. For the bouquet, create a beautiful bow of the wedding colors. You can even tie in some of the remaining ribbon from the headband to add more decorative accents for the bride.

Tables and Chairs

Another great way to decorate and also coordinate the wedding colors into the room is with the seating and tables. There are many different sizes of ribbons to choose from, but I would recommend buying the larger widths for the chairs and table decorations. Assuming you have two colors, overlay them and wrap around each chair. Finish it off with a bow, or even just a loose knot. This looks very elegant over white chair covers, but it also dresses up the seating if you don’t have chair covers. For the tables just make a few bows out of the ribbon and lay them on the table, or wrap them around the centerpieces.

The Cake

One of the most elegant ways to dress up a wedding cake is with ribbon. Again, the freedom that ribbon gives you in terms of colors and patterns definitely plays to your advantage here. Using the same coordinating wedding color ribbon- or one the bride would prefer- line the base of each layer of cake with the ribbon, and top with a bow. You also might try incorporating the same types of flower from the bouquet as a cake topper.


From the sounds of it, you will be needing a lot of ribbon! I would recommend buying in bulk at a local store or online so you can save some money. The Ribbon Retreat has a huge selection, and they can ship just about anywhere. Happy decorating!
