Repurposing Wooden Shutters as Wedding Decor

Repurposing Wooden Shutters as Wedding Decor

We can all admit to either thinking back on our wedding day or dreaming about it. Walking down the aisle and celebrating the day with family and friends. The most magical day of your life, guests come from near and far just to witness your declaration of love. What could be better than that? How about a massive celebration filled with classy decor, mouth-watering food and refreshing beverages? It sounds like a fantastic time to splurge a little, why wouldn't you? It's an important moment for you and your significant other. If you can splurge, then go ahead, but with the latest wedding themes of vintage and repurposing being the order of the day, we have some exciting ways to repurpose your old wooden shutters .

Old unused shutters are a beautiful, rustic, cost-effective way to decorate your wedding and here's how.

Wooden Shutter Ornaments

Memories are forever and a beautiful thing, so why not display them in the most elegant way possible. Use your old, worn out vintage wooden shutters as a large photo frame to show off photos of you and your loved one. Your guest will be sure to appreciate the walk down your memory lane up to the big day.

Table Displays

As the saying goes, less is more. This is 100 percent true. Keep it simple yet classy on your special day, by using rustic wooden shutters as a table runner. To spice it up, add a touch of your style, for example, plants or photos to add more substance and give it more body.

Seating Arrangements

Weddings can be a stressful thing. It’s one thing arranging your dress, organising the caterer and florist but trying to figure out where to place everyone is an entirely different ball game. Make things efficient and smooth for you and your guests, by utilising wooden shutters as a way to display your seating arrangements. It's not only pretty to look at, but it’s also organised.


Who said your wedding day has to be tiring and stressful? Have some fun and be silly by using wooden shutters as a backdrop for photos. Be even more creative and have little props at bay, for example, moustaches and funny texts, so you and your guests can make even more special memories together.

If this doesn't appeal to you, use the wooden shutters as a backdrop for the cake display. Add some decoration to it and watch your reception transform into something out of a magazine. You can be as creative as your mind allows you to be.


Don't follow the crowd, stand out from it. Skip the mediocre altar and wow your guests, with your wooden shutter ‘altar-native’. Have someone add some light, plain drapes to it and have fun with it on your big day.
