Birdcage-Inspired Wedding Ideas

Today’s Inspired Creations Contest concept comes to us from the team of Morgan Gallo Events, Jade McCully Photography (you may remember Jade from these past weddings on the blog), and Emma J Designs, who created a wedding concept incorporating birds and birdcages that is so whimsical and fun!

Spring Bird Theme Wedding Invitations

The look is sophisticated yet relaxed and handmade and the palette of pink, peach, purple and gold is perfect for a springtime wedding.  A bird logo, as shown on the invitations by Emma J Designs above, made its appearance in all of the details.

A birdbath at the entrance held programs and birdseed in customized stamped muslin bags.  Birdseed wreaths decorated the entrance to The Davenport House

To create your own birdseed wreath, simply cover a styrofoam wreath in glue and roll in birdseed!

Escort cards were hung with clothespins from a large antique frame backed by chicken wire, and birdcages and ribbon were the theme of the day!

Ribbon wands are perfect in lieu of sparklers or as flower girl wands.  To create them, spray paint wooden dowels white.  Attach paper birds to ribbon and tie ribbon around the end of the dowel.

Paper flower garlands and birdcages were hung from the trees.  To create the birdcages, use an embroidery hoop as your base and top.  Wrap chicken wire around and wire to the hoops.  Wire wooden dowels into the display (high enough not to be burned by a candle, if you choose to have one in your birdcage), and add birds with wire or hot glue.
