Your Ceremony Decorations
Start with a lace runner for you to walk down and your aisle pews draped with lace and faux pearls with a bit of baby’s breath at each pew for a really soft vintage look. For your flower arrangements have the florist add pearl bouquet picks to them and perhaps a large lace bow.

Here’s a stunning centerpiece idea for your lace and pearl wedding
Your centerpieces might take on a variety of looks such as, cut pieces of pretty lace of your choice into squares or rectangles and arrange in a crinkled manner in the center of the table. Set a votive in a clear holder on top and arrange a string of faux pearls in an attractive manner around it. Or on your lace runner place a reflective mirror and then buy inexpensive champagne glasses. Put a tall pillar candle on the mirror and surround the candle or set a champagne glass on each side with pearls and lace ribbon spilling out of them for a romantic look. If flowers are your choice stick pearl picks in the arrangements and add pretty lace bows.
Lace and pearls are popular for outdoor weddings especially when you combine them with collectable or even reclaimed furniture such as a table or buffet piece to display your wedding favors before giving them out. The lace and pearls look fantastic wrapped around a jar or vase or an edible item you choose to say thank you to your guests. Another great idea is to honor your family with photos of them from their weddings or the like and display them on one of your pieces of furniture you are using covered with a lace runner or doily. Your wedding cake is a beautiful way to carry out the lace and pearls theme. Have your baker use the edible pearls available as part of the decoration and he can recreate the look of lace with the icing. If you choose cupcakes there are really pretty paper cupcake holders in lace or filigree designs. Be sure to see pictures of the baker’s work before you ask him to do your cake Also, have him give you a taste of what he will be doing for you to make sure it is what you want served at your wedding.
