DIY: Chic decor style for exclusive destination weddings

Every bride wants their wedding to be exclusive, that’s why we’re here to help you achieve this with the very best hints, tips and ideas. If you’re a lover of all things DIY and a rustic style, how about decorating your wedding venue by reusing old objects?

You too can create some beautiful details to include in your wedding with just a few things that are lurking in your cupboards and in your loft. DIY has become an incredibly popular trend in decor styling at weddings and we absolutely love it!

Wooden boxes, glass jars, tins, wine corks, light bulbs and even scraps of fabric… many objects that you thought would be useless can be reused to create a very special style. You’ll soon be able to decorate your big day just as you’ve always dreamed!

This is why we think you should choose a special venue for a unique destination wedding, such as the Parador de Vic – Sau or the Parador de Guadalupe, two very special venues in Spain that will charm you and your guests, not just because of their spectacular location and incredible views but for the countless options that these venues offer for you to personalise your day just the way you want. Their outdoor spaces are always a fantastic way to style a DIY wedding with beautiful tables in a magnificent outdoor setting. Using wild flowers for a rustic outdoor reception will make your wedding a true work of art.

Your wedding decor speaks volumes about you as a couple and your style, but it’s the venue you choose that really makes the difference. When choosing a Parador, your guests will remember your wedding as a magical event in a very special place with a decor style that everyone dreams about for such an important day.

Old wine corks, wooden boxes and glass jars can all be used as wonderful focal points for your wedding reception. Hard to believe but true! Spectacular works of art can be achieved by reusing a few old objects and placing them in a fairytale venue such as the Parador de Arcos de la Frontera, that offers you the possibility of celebrating the rustic wedding of your dreams with details that will convert a standard wedding into something unique and very special in the simplest of ways.
