1. Poles and chandeliers


Choose items such as poles and chandeliers and add charms and ribbons, tailoring them to your wedding theme. Wrap coloured ribbon around a table-top maypole and attach charms, beads and candles to suit your style. Choosing colours to contrast with the wedding theme is a great way of jazzing up your reception decorations. These can be hung to create a sense of height or displayed as table centrepieces.

2. Fairy lights


Adding fair lights to branches or choosing props such as light-up trees are great for creating delicate lighting to your reception or ceremony venue. Place these around the room or down an aisle adding some candles and other subtle lighting for a romantic setting.

3. Candlesticks


Candlesticks can add glamorous definition and drama to your wedding. Choose different sizes and heights of candlesticks to place around your venue in clusters to create different areas of light and ambience.

4. Jars and foliage


Table decorations can be more than just flowers. Add fruits, berries and wild foliage to apothecary jars and flowers in different-sized vases for a clean and contemporary look. Choose flowers and fruits to complement your wedding theme and add small tealights to your tables to create a glamorous glow.

5. Rustic arches


Add a touch of glamour before guests even enter your venue with a rustic arch. Decorate these with bright flowers for a chic yet glamorous entrance. Use the arch somewhere else in your venue later in the day to maximise décor.

Using props and lighting to add glamour will really make your wedding a talking point among your guests. Get Knotted has launched maypole charmed chandeliers and offers a range of props to add glamour to a wedding. For more information and inspiration visit
