Future bride Josefina contacted us from Chile about an order of papel picado to complete her fairytale wedding on June 29th, 2019. We were very excited to help her bring this idea into a reality and immediately started to brainstorm with her. We suggested she add a personalised flag with her nickname, Jose, and her fiance’s name, Pito, to give a more intimate effect at her function.
To help properly guide Josefina in her personalised wedding bunting purchase, we requested some images of her venue and advised her on ways she could hang her personalised wedding decor to get the best effect.
We often say that papel picado looks absolutely at its best when hung in abundance, and as luck would have it, Josefina was on the same page as us, when decorating her approximately 1,000 metres squared venue.
We have a few decorating styles we recommend for weddings, including arching down in the middle, arching down on both sides, and straight across. Josefina chose the second option. It’s important to remember, when you’re looking for that gorgeous drooping effect with ARTMEXICO personalised wedding bunting, you need to calculate 10% more on your length to account for the arch. This brings the height of your wedding venue down and creates a serene and intimate effect.
In the end, Josefina ended up needing 510 meters of personalised wedding bunting to fill her space, and boy, did it ever transform this venue! The venue was just set aglow with romantic and soft papel picado garlands detailed with doves, hearts, flowers, and the names of the newlyweds. If you want this effect, we recommend hanging your personalised wedding bunting 1 metre apart across the entirety of your venue.
We were also very pleased to offer Josefina some wedding favors to match her personalised wedding decor. In fact, for all wedding orders, you will receive the same number of matching mini papel picado flags as the total quantity of metres of personalised wedding bunting that you order.
Usually, we recommend ordering 3 weeks in advance for our personalised wedding bunting, but if you need them last minute, we can work something out around your schedule, too! Just get in touch and ask our team.
