How to personalise your wedding venue without breaking the bank

The wedding season is upon us and you may be busy planning decorations, whilst trying to keep the costs down. One way to do this is by making your own decorations and here we have a few ideas using Craftfoam, which you could easily create at home – whatever your taste.

Use Craftfoam letters to personalise your venue

Craftfoam letters such as ‘Mr & Mrs’ can be cut to the size you require, to either personalise the top table or to be present outside the venue itself – they create an impressive impact! These letters can be painted to complement your wedding colours, or left in their natural grey or white.

Other couples choose Craftfoam letters to create a Welcome sign outside or within the venue, creating a welcoming atmosphere as soon as the guests arrive at the venue.

Many couples have also created an impressive centrepiece using Craftfoam, with a large heart shaped out of Craftfoam, creating an attractive and very visual representation of the love that the couple have for each other. These can be created by using a cardboard template placed above a sheet of craftfoam, which can easily be cut to shape using a Stanley knife.

Cake or fake?

Wedding cakes can be a big Wedding Day expense – with the average cake costing around £300! To many couples this is just a step too far – so some couples have found creative ways to use Craftfoam to create an artificial wedding cake – which looks authentic, but without the added costs! Craftfoam is available in thicknesses up to 165mm, so you could create as many tiers on the cake as you wish. The artificial cake can be painted to suit your colours, as well as decorated with ribbons, icing, emblems or even a bride and groom figure – use your imagination!

There is no limit to what you can create with Craftfoam – all you need is to get creative. With its excellent moisture resistance, extreme strength and lightweight properties, your Craftfoam wedding decorations are sure to last, far beyond your wedding, serving as a great memento of your special day.

Craftfoam is available in handy sheet sizes, a range of thicknesses and in a variety of coloured material, making it the perfect solution to your projects.

Craftfoam is available for delivery anywhere in the UK, or can be collected from our Sheffield warehouse.
