If you’re planning a rustic wedding, check out this wedding we decorated.
We recently had the privilege of providing props for a tipi rustic wedding – a first for us… I can happily confirm that tipis are defo a great option for weddings! We worked with the lovely bride, Rebecca, to create a few bespoke pieces especially for her (and the hubby of course)
As you entered the tipi we created a personalised seating plan named ‘Where in the world are you sitting’. All tables were named cities that the bride and groom had been to. Great for a couple who have experienced the travel bug! We loved doing this and will be making this as a special bundle for more brides.
Inside the tipi we hung our fairy lit hessian heart behind the top table, making it obvious where the focus was in the room. Rebecca’s family had crocheted Mr and Mrs bunting which we tied across the front of it.
The bride and groom had a table especially for photos of their parents’ and grandparents’ wedding pictures, we used our scroll frames and jars to decorate here.
Our drinks dispensers and crates came out to play with our personalised drinks labels.
At the end of the evening they had fireworks and sparklers so they purchased our sparkler bundle adding a personalised touch to another table with the chalkboard we designed for them.
When we were there we spotted a few cute looking props the bride and groom organised themselves, my favourite was the old school milk bottles used as centre pieces.
This rustic wedding was beautiful and we wish Rebecca and Phil all the best as the new Mr & Mrs 🙂
Who are we?
I’m Becky, a 30 something mama of two, from West London and I run this creative little business together with my mum Wendy.
When covid landed on our doorstep in 2020, one thing we did to help encourage sales of our craft kits, was create the Shop Small Christmas Gift Catalogue. We posted it out to thousands of homes, advertising gift ideas, all sold from small businesses, including my own, encouraging people to shop small at Christmas.
I loved helping other companies, I wondered about converting our catalogue into an in-person event.
So in summer 2022, we hosted out first ever pop-up market in Westfield shopping centre, encouraging the nation to shop from small businesses. I absolutely loved meeting so many inspiring business owners and helping them increase exposure and sales, it’s made me want to organise more events. It’s naturally turned into a business itself, hosting in person shopping events, helping diversify the high street with products from small businesses.
As a product selling business owner myself selling a range of craft kits, I know full well how hard it can be to generate a regular income and to keep the business going especially with big brands dominating the high street
From my own experience I’ve found if you have a good product, selling in person can be such a beneficial way to get your stock off the shelves and into the hands of your ideal customer. I’m passionate about helping small businesses thrive and the I Do Handmade Pop-Ups will hopefully do exactly that.
