I am so excited to show you this film clip! I think styling using lampshades is going to be a hugely popular for weddings in 2017. This is actually not a new thing and are ideal for weddings; particularly wedding breakfasts/drinks receptions. But I had to announce that we have just had a mega influx and now have A LOT available for hire now in Essex and Suffolk! (when I say a lot, I mean close to 200 in all shapes, styles and sizes). When clustered and hung correctly together creates an inspiring effect.
I have absolutely fallen in love with these lampshades! Forgo the traditional and use these beauties! They can be used either indoors or outside and with Spring nearly upon us; imagine being out in the fresh open space or an airy marquee with these hanging overhead. The refreshing, quirky styling will complete the bohemian and inspirational feel you are after.
With various choices available like hanging from festoon belts or individually from wire, build the design layout that you imagine.

DIY Lampshade Décor
Like this styling, but prefer the DIY approach? Trawling the internet (ebay/gumtree/pre-loved), boot sales and charity for vintage lampshades it certainly an option. But nowadays it can prove quite time consuming to find decent, good quality lampshades at a bargain. If your prepared to put in the hours and have the patience, you will eventually find a few at a good price.
Check out Pinterest. It is a great place to look for unique and do-able DIY lampshade arrangements for your wedding and help get those creative juices flowing!
Before proceeding down the DIY route, it is definitely worth balancing the cost of your time, labour, stress and actual purchase against the peace of mind of hiring the service from the professionals and not having to worry about installation, removal and dealing with glitches pre, post and during wedding. I’m pretty certain you will have enough on your plate prior to your day!
Lampshades not your thing? Further Inspiration:
If Lampshades don’t appeal to your wedding vision and you want your day to be even more edgy and individual? Why not try hanging umbrellas upside down instead!
