Handmade Wedding Bunting

Is there anything more celebratory than bunting? {Some call them banners.} We especially love the triangle, fabric wedding bunting. From burlap material to cotton cuties in mix and match patterns, simple bunting can sweeten and brighten up just about any space at all. Whether they’re strung from the ceiling, between cupcakes, or along walls and tables … hooray for bunting!

Visiting Etsy for inspiration, I found some handmade bunting beauties from a few creative designers.

For your sweet treats

You can buy sticks at any craft store {I got mine at Walmart} to use for attaching miniature bunting. Bringing color and charm to any sweet table or sugary delight, mini wedding banners will always be a big hit!

An Engagement-session Prop

Not just adorable, wedding bunting in an engagement session can be a great prop for nervous couples as it gives them something to do with their hands.


For Vintage or Rustic Appeal

Bunting feels right at home in a vintage or rustic setting. Use them around your ceremony seats or near the guest book for additional appeal.
