Prop stars‘to make a statement and fll that extra space, use a specialist props frm to hire quirky large-scale decor details. Whether you fancy creating a relaxing lounge complete with boudoir-style furniture (try grangerhertzog.com), or incorporating giant lightbulb initials (check out vowedandamazed.co.uk), it’s a cost-efective way to upgrade your reception.

Brides brings you the latest looks we love… metallic manis anyone?‘Some of the most stylish weddings making their way on to my desk are now using dove grey as their base colour.
Brides are choosing soft grey linens to dress tables and picking glam chiffons for bridesmaids. Adding silver and white touches is also an instant hit. Two of our most popular recent covers have been on grey backgrounds.
‘Molten manis will be the hot look this year. Metallic accents were all over the 2014 catwalks at Prada, Chanel and Christian Dior, and nails are an easy way to dip your toe (or fngers) into the trend. Nails Inc’s new Foil Efect polishes come in pale gold, silver and metallic pink (pictured, £12, nailsinc.com), and are made with a new formulation so that they dry like smooth transfers for a luxe look.’
Astrid Joss, fashion and beauty editorCakes in bloom‘Cakes aren’t just for eating this year – they are decor in their own right. Opulence is the name of the game, so forget sugar ﬂowers – it’s all about bountiful, garden-fresh blooms and foliage in abundant layers.’
‘It’s not just about getting a classic close-up couple shot anymore, but about making photos look like they’re a work of art. Photographers are capturing the bride and groom in lush landscapes – these are the images you’ll want to have blown up and framed.’
‘Pink’s not just for ﬂowers! For 2019, go a shade braver on your big day and opt for a rosy-coloured wedding dress like Jessica Biel, Reese Witherspoon and Anne Hathaway did with their pretty pink gowns.’
