Welcome the wedding season in style

A wedding is the best of both worlds. Two people aiming for eternity, yet very much here and now. In our take, we connect timeless ideals with the colours and materials that tickle our fancy in spring of 2019.

One of a kind for two of a kind

The wedding arbour is the backdrop for lifelong memories. Here we’ve made it from blue and white, soft textiles. Once the ceremony is over, why not use it as a photo booth for your guests? The eucalyptus twigs (in the rattan basket) don’t just add a beautiful bluish green – the leaves are a welcome substitute for rice to shower the bride and groom with.

IKEA interior designer Elin Stierna talks about wedding decorations made with reused and natural materials.

“A wedding is as special as it gets. It doesn’t mean everything has to be all-new. Reused and natural materials can instead help make the occasion even more unique and memorable.”

Setting the table to set the mood

The blues and whites are echoed in the tableware, adding to the Mediterranean feel. The rest of the setting, with flowing textiles and generous floral arrangements, highlight the organic and sustainable elements of the theme.

Festive, foldable, functional

A big expression is even better when it’s practical. Drape foldaway chairs with meter fabric – naturally with a romantic pattern – to match the colour theme. Once the dinner is through, the setting and seating can be cleared in a flash to make room for everyone’s signature dance moves.

A feast for your eyes (and sweet tooth)

The day may draw to a close, but there’s still time to make an impression. Often an original idea carries further than buying new. See what you can do with the things you have. Like turning a dresser into a different kind of dessert table, and presenting candy from a combination of glasses and plates (use adhesive to build high).

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
