Reception Ideas: Lovebird Motifs Update

Looking for a lovebird motif that's more modern than lovey-dovey? We've come across lots of real weddings with unique bird decor.

Catherine and Ben's escort cards were a mix of retro and modern. The old-school silhouette of a lovebird perched on cherry blossoms is updated by the card’s modern tiffany blue and brown colors. See more from Catherine and Ben's wedding.

Laura and Matt’s escort cards had an elegant update on the love bird theme. The cards’ cutout birds feature delicate calligraphy and match the wedding’s pink, champagne and ivory details. Get more ideas from Laura and Matt’s wedding.

Andrea and Rich's escort cards used a bird motif and doubled as extra favors! Guests’ names were attached to the miniature bird's nests and blue Jordan almonds filled the nests to mimic bird eggs and serve as an added treat. See more from Andrea and Rich's wedding.

The two blue blown-glass birds that Sam and Sue used at their wedding make a great less-traditional cake topper and add another unique touch to the funky polka-dot design of the cake. See more from Sam and Sue’s wedding.

Are you using a bird motif on any of your wedding day details? Share your ideas!
