We're going green: "Natural Wedding" as a motto

The "Natural Wedding" motto will be just right for couples who like things rustic, country-style and natural. And because plants and elements of nature are first choices, the motto could also be "Wood meets Green". CEWE, Europe's leading photo service, has some suggestions for putting this motto into practice, from invitations to decorations and photo documentations of the Big Day.

Invitation cards and decorations in a natural look
Barn, country estate, beach, woodlands or mountain pastures – the "Natural Wedding" motto is ideal for a number of different locations. Celebrating in a natural country-style surrounding is always down-to-earth and relaxed, with a touch of elegance as well. Nature is the source of inspiration. The motto should already appear on the save-the-date card and the invitation. A photo of the bridal couple standing in a meadow or on a beach, delicate flower elements and warm colours will all highlight the theme and give guests an idea of the location. The diverse range of CEWE CARDS includes invitations and matching table place cards and menus and can be ordered at Ideas for the stationery and decorations can be collected on long strolls. Branches, wooden discs and wild flowers, casually bound and arranged, are ideal as accessories. Wooden boxes and materials such as canvas, jute and kraft paper are a must since they add the naturalness the location needs. "Naked cakes" are the absolute trend. They are not coated in fondant icing and they blend perfectly into the natural setting of the wedding when decorated with a few real flowers.


Champagne reception and give-aways for guests with a touch of DIY
The atmosphere is often more relaxed and jolly at natural-style weddings. Seasonal cuisine or a delicious barbecue is on the menu. Homemade lemonade or a delicious country-style punch with fresh fruit is ideal as a special drink. Served in rustic bottles or jars, decorated with a colourful straw or flag in kraft paper, they are not only drinking vessels, they are also eye-catchers and creative decorations. And to make things really personal: Go to to design individual photo stickers and create personal labels. They are ideal as pictures of the bridal couples, as natural motifs or for showing a photo of the ingredients in a drink. Little gift bags made of kraft paper creatively decorated with a green twig and a white clothes peg guarantee a country look. Photo stickers are an eye-catcher here too, and will also ensure that guests have fond memories after the wedding.

Impressive photo garland
Nothing is better than a beautiful wedding motto to suit the bridal couple. But what really makes a wedding personal are the rituals, items and photos showing the couple or joining them together. Tip for decorations from CEWE: Design your favourite motifs as retro prints, put them on a long ribbon and hang them up in the room as an alternative to the popular strings of buntings. This gives wedding decorations a personal touch. Styles leaning on vintage and retro harmonise perfectly with the "natural wedding" trend. The retro prints are available from CEWE in sets of 16, 24 or 32 prints. Creative frames, templates and filters give the photos just the right look. They get their final touch with individual photo captions in different fonts.

CEWE PHOTOBOOK as an invaluable memory to treasure
After the wedding celebration, with many impressions and fresh memories in mind, the task on hand is to present the best motifs taken by photographers and guests. What could be better than a personal photo book of your wedding, created according to your own ideas, to hold in your hand. CEWE PHOTOBOOKS offer numerous creative design options. Hard cover embellishments in gold, silver or effect finishing give the memory to treasure a distinct appearance. Four types of binding and many paper qualities are available for creating your PHOTOBOOK. Tip for the design from CEWE: The wedding motto, the colours of the photos and the design elements chosen, such as fonts, shapes and cliparts, should all be coordinated to ensure that the individual elements create an effective overall look.

Personal decorative highlight in a natural look
Anyone who wants to best highlight wonderful wedding moments and remember them forever in the comfort of their own four walls will have a wide range of options with CEWE WALL ART. In line with their motto, newly married nature lovers can design the motif of their choice on a photo canvas made of natural materials such as high-quality linen fabric or rustic wood.
