It goes without saying, get creative and give your guest a sneak peek of your theme by using flamingo illustrations on your invitations. Alternatively, you could give them a subtle clue by opting for a design with lots of splashes of hot pink and palm tree details.

We suggest using the same style of stationery throughout your wedding day, for instance use the same flamingo illustrations for your table numbers, seating plan and place names.

Flamingo-shaped balloons can be used in lots of lovely ways throughout your big day. They can be used along the aisle, dotted in the corners of your venue or they can be fun props for your wedding photographs. The choice is yours, but they’re a fab addition to your celebration.

Are you having a Summer cocktail station for your special day? If so, we love the idea of accessorising your drink station with bright pink flamingo straws. They’re guaranteed to add a special touch to your cocktail bar and your guests will feel like they’ve been transported to a tropical paradise.

Bright neon signs or flamingo-inspired backdrops are a gorgeous way of decorating your wedding venue, and they make an incredible DIY photo-booth for you and your guests to enjoy.

Fun flamingo statues are a wonderful choice if you’re graced with lots of outdoor space at your wedding venue.

If you’re having a chill-out lounge area at your wedding, mini neon flamingo signs would look ultra-stylish on coffee tables or next to your seating.
