Once you've found the right venue and sent out your invitations you can start thinking about your silver wedding anniversary decorations. Some venues already offer ready-made decorations, which you can then add your own personal touches to. However, if you are celebrating at home or in a restaurant and would like to decorate yourself you can think about a decoration concept in advance and then buy or create the decorations yourself. These tips can help you plan and design some stylish 25th wedding anniversary decorations:
Decide in advance what style you like. Should it be a more natural, playful decoration or do you want it to look a bit more glamorous for your special day?
Choose harmonious colours. If silver is to be the main colour for the occasion, muted colours are recommended. Alternatively, you can combine silver with red and bring two colours together that represent your love.
Choosing the right tableware. The tableware should match the occasion and the rest of the decorative elements. If you are celebrating at home, you can borrow tableware for your party.
If you want to get creative and make your own 25th wedding anniversary decorations, you should plan and buy the materials in good time. This will save you stress and you can enjoy getting creative.
Remember in addition to the table with the guests, bar tables, gift tables and buffet tables, which may also need to be decorated.
Some decorative elements (such as chair covers, candlesticks, or lighting) and furniture (such as chairs, a bar, or tables) can be hired for the party. This is more sustainable and it saves you from buying extra things.
Below you will find our silver wedding decoration ideas, which you can either copy or adapt to your party. For our 25th wedding anniversary decorations, we worked with muted, natural colours that let the silver shine as the main colour. The decorations are deliberately minimalist and therefore look modern and festive at the same time. We will now show you the details and the craft ideas we used.
The table setting is usually the centre of your celebration. It's not only where people eat, but also where they talk and laugh together. Silver plates would make great decorations and are well suited for the occasion. Simple white dinner plates placed on top and silver cutlery rounds off the place setting. For the napkins, you can either use white paper napkins or as a sustainable and festive alternative cloth napkins. Attach a eucalyptus branch and a silver ribbon to the napkins, which gives the table decoration a natural look.
Add a touch of vintage style to your silver wedding decorations with small flower arrangements in different vases scattered around the table. We chose white roses with baby's breath to match the decoration. Flowers that stand for love, loyalty, and affection also work well, for example ranunculi, tulips, violets, peonies, succulents or sunflowers. Many of these flowers may grow in your back garden.
A lovely detail is to scatter decoration on the table. You can use either silver and white hearts or silver confetti. If you have a paper punch, cut out the decoration from silver and white paper and make them yourself.
Did you know that...
You can easily add some charm to your silver wedding table decorations by making your own silver vases. Simply paint or spray old vases or beautifully decorated bottles in silver and make something new out of something old.
Homemade name cards look great and help your guests to find their seats. These make it easier to organise the seating arrangements and to add additional information such as table numbers or the menu card.
Variety of corks
You can make our DIY name cards for your silver wedding table decoration in no time at all. All you have to do is collect or buy some corks. To create a strong base, cut the bottom of the cork straight across. Then slightly cut the top with a sharp knife so that you can clamp the name card between them. That’s it! It’s ready to use.
Tip: If you make two or three cork holders, you can use them to place larger signs such as a copy of the menu, signs for the gift table or small signposts.
The right lighting can create an unforgettable atmosphere. Small lights on the tables are great for a romantic atmosphere. With our DIY idea you can make perfect tea light holders for your silver wedding celebration.

This playful, beautiful silver wedding wreath is a pretty decoration for your venue or even a front door. It is a modern interpretation of the traditional silver wedding wreath made out of pine branches. This is supposed to symbolise the couple's eternal fidelity and keep evil spirits away. You can stick to the traditional fir branches or try our more modern version.

Think about how you want your silver wedding wreath to look beforehand and experiment with arranging the leaves and flowers until you like it. When you are happy, attach each branch to the ring by wrapping them with the floral wire. You can also tie the twigs between the leaves so that the plants fit snugly around your ring. Tie a ribbon at the top to hang up your door wreath. A small cut-out pendant with a 25 symbolises your milestone. When you are done, your silver wedding wreath is ready to decorate your front door.
