Love Birds Theme for Weddings

Ideas and Inspirations | Photos and Galleries
Motif: Love Birds
Main Colors: Pale Blue and Bright Orange

Birds have a longstanding tradition as a symbol of love - here are some ideas for a love birds theme wedding. The perfect start to your bird theme would be this Love Birds Wedding Invitation Set from fubabee's esty shop This invitation has two quiet love birds hanging out in the breeze, enjoying each other's company. The set includes an invitation and a response card. Lisa, the fubabee's shop artist, also has Love Birds Folded Note Cards available which are perfect for your wedding thank your cards. Lisa is happy to customize colors to meet your needs as well.

The above pictured favor does double-duty as a place card holder - the Birds Nest Place Card Holders - are made of twig and can be filled with egg-shaped chocolates, jordan almonds, etc. They are available in 2 sizes and the place card banner can easily be made by cutting 3/4 inch wide strips of paper that are long enough to reach across the nest. Then write in your guest names on each strip and finish the ends by cutting out an inverted "V". Another idea for favors are Love Nest Soaps which are straw nests filled with four pale mini blue egg soaps in a pleasing floral scent and wrapped in cello bags.

The Tiny Lovebirds Round Sticker from Invitation Box (item # SCB-SM-46493) would be perfect for either sealing your wedding thank you's or used as a label for the top of favor boxes filled with pale blue jordan almonds. The favor label could read "from the lovebirds" as the text is completely customizable at Invitation Box.

This has to be the cutest ring bearer pillow I've ever come across - the Moss Bird Nest Cushion is from EasterYu's esty shop and would also be ideal for a nature-inspired wedding.

For dessert you might like to serve a wedding cake like this Yellow Birds 4 tier cake from Kate Sullivan of Lovin Sullivan Cakes.

Or if you want to serve each guest their own cupcake, these Orange Carrot Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting topped with a candied orange peel nest couldn't be cuter.

An idea for your table centerpieces might be little craft birds perched on tree branches in vases.
