Lord of the Rings & Your Wedding Decor
Updated: May 12, 2019
Why We Started Making Them
We made our first Lord of the Rings themed wedding for an absolutely magical couple in Hawaii. They asked us to make something that would be rustic and themed, but nothing too kitsch or naff. We like to keep things simple, and let the wood speak for itself. So we knocked some signposts together and got some log slices out of the store. We used our popular Tolkien style font, and bingo bango... ready to go!
When we first started these, we were doing everything by hand...all the pyrography (wood burning). We were making so many of these that my ordinary everyday handwriting would sometimes slip into this font! Then last year, we got our laser, and it meant we could make everything better; make them more quickly, more detailed, deeper, cheaper for the customer, and with more personalising!
What We Offer Now
Now that we have our laser, we make a whole range of wedding decor that can be personalised easily and looks impressive yet subtle and rustic!
We still have our bestselling table signs but we do so much more. And it blows my mind the amount of folk our there who feature Tolkien's world in their special day. The Lord of the Rings has something to say to everyone; but the enduring motif I think that lingers is friendship and togetherness. Cheesy it may be, but so be it. So I think that's why a lot of people like it as a wedding theme. Or maybe people just like to feel like they're in The Shire for one day; dancing around the party tree in their bare feet...eating, drinking and being merry.
I WOULD RATHER SPEND ONE LIFETIME WITH YOU, THAN FACE ALL THE AGES OF THIS WORLD ALONE
Lord of the Rings
Some people just get a Sweetheart Table Sign...others go for hundreds of Lorien Leaf Place Settings and Room Decor for 300 guests. Whatever size of wedding we get, we can do it. We work with people from their invitation stage, to the panic of that 'last-minute-guest' who your Uncle's cousin's dog just had to invite!
IF MORE OF US VALUED FOOD & CHEER & SONG ABOVE HOARDED GOLD, IT WOULD BE A MERRIER WORLD.
Weddings can be so stressful, and just down right expensive, so we like that our place settings can double up as favours; they take away the pressure of having to think of 2 things for the table...and people love their name burned onto wood, believe me! We've had a good few folk now buy the Lorien Leaf Place Settings for their wedding, which didn't have a Tolkien theme at all, they just liked the leafy look!
We work with our couples to make sure that everything that can be done as early as possible is done. But we know that people pull out last minute, people get added in, and quite often you don't have a finished guestlist until quite late. And we help! We normally have a quick email with our couples to find out when their wedding is, how many guests, and what they're looking for. Everything that can be made months before is made. But when it comes to the place settings, we wait until the couple are ready. And that can be quite close to the big day.
So How Do I Get Some?
For all orders, you can buy directly on our website or Etsy, and include all your personalising easily. Or some folk like to chat to us before they make a wedding order, and that's lovely too! If you'd like to talk to us, you can get us through the website here, or through Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/thedribblyyak or our email firstname.lastname@example.org
We have our full range of decor on our website www.thedribblyyak.com/wedding and Etsy www.etsy.com/uk/shop/thedribblyyak, so have a look, see if we have what you're looking for. If we don't, give us a shout and see if we can make it for you!
Anniversary Presents Sorted Too
Because I've been making these Lord of the Rings wedding packages for around 3 years now, I've started to see people coming back for anniversary presents too, which is awesome! There have been couples buying the Middle Earth Map Coffee Table, or friends and family clubbing together for a Doors of Durin Trunk.
Our tables will always be hand burned, and always include free personalising too!
