  • Your bridesmaids’ companion

    Time to give an extra care for your bridesmaids who’ve been there with you since the beginning. Think about it again, what’s a better gift than something they can reuse in the future but also match to your wedding theme?

  • For the little ones

    Just like how you’d want to pamper your best friends, you might as well want to give the same love for the flower girl or ring bearer. For these little ones, you can find this bird nest-like ring box or floral head crown online.

  • Warmest welcome

    A stunning welcome sign like no other? Find your own kind of warmest welcome for your guest. Just take a hint from this tropical-inspired wedding above, where they displayed a bountiful flowers and palm leaves on a rattan-accented tricycle. If you’re hosting a wedding in a farm, why not bringing the donkeys and altogether make a cute entrance with them?

  • At the altar

    For a matching ceremonial setup, you can also decorate your wedding altar with some rattan elements. Once again, you can make a good use of palm leaves and vibrant blooms. Furthermore, some pink flamingos are inseparable from tropical theme, so just display all those elements together for the perfect ambience.

  • Seating chart

    You can go all out on your escort card display or just imply a hint of it. Which one of these ideas is more suitable to your liking?

  • Exciting impression

    Yet again, you can impress your guests with more rattan elements and create your own wedding aesthetic with it. Look at this rattan bakers rack and how they use it as a storage of romantic stuff, such as candles and vases of flowers? Take your cue from the woven basket too, which usually be used for collecting dried white rice.

  • Cocktail bar area

    A collection of rattan furniture at your drinking station may emphasize your wedding theme. Furthermore, its appearance offers a laid-back atmosphere that will surely encourage your guest to mingle.

  • Sweetheart chairs

    Again, there are so many options when it comes to rattan furniture. One of them is the rattan peacock chair that can be utilized effortlessly, with or without additional decor.

  • Overhead decoration

    Moving on to the reception area, you can emphasize your wedding theme with some overhead decoration made of rattan. Don’t forget to hang some garlands for a beautiful result.

  • Let there be light

    If you’re celebrating the reception under the roof, make sure you’re providing a nice lighting for this once-in-a-lifetime festivity. Be creative with the way you handcraft the ball lampshade!

  • Lounge area

    Here’s an idea of a lounge area for the guest from all ages. Throw some rattan pieces at the kids’ playground and around the patio where the adults hang out during the cocktail hour.

  • Table arrangement

    Don’t go overboard with the overhead decoration when you can rent rattan chairs entirely for the guest. But if you can’t, simply adorn the light bulb with some rattan lampshade.

  • Place cards

    As an alternative to woven place card holders, imbuing weaving-like pattern in brown color on the place card is great enough to show your love for this wooden material.

  • Dining table setting

    In addition, you can have this round rattan placemat for a more unique tablescape.

  • Wedding cake display

    This floral wreath doesn’t only look pretty as a backdrop, but also easy to make. Get your hula hoop at home and start wrapping it with thick jute twine for a rattan look-alike hoop.

  • Wedding cake display

    Another way to showcase your wedding cake in style is to put it on a rattan cake stand or you might as well ask your event rental if they offer any rattan furniture that can serve as a cake table.

  • Other functional elements

    Rattan pieces are indeed versatile, they can be styled as your wedding décor and even functional for keeping your wedding favors in place.

  • Favors and gifts

    Finally, what could be a better keepsake that will forever remind the guests of your wedding day? For a long-lasting remembrance, find the one that represents you and your fiancé’s personalities.
