The clocks go forward this weekend here in the UK, which marks the official start of British Summer Time – hurrah, bring on the sunshine!

 

This led me to thinking that if you’re getting married on a day when the clocks change, or maybe New Year’s Eve, or possibly you just love vintage clocks, then a subtle time theme or a display of charming clock faces could make a creative and decorative wedding feature.

 

So this week’s Friday Five features five ways to incorporate clocks into your big day. From ceremony backdrops to wedding table centrepieces, show your guests that it is wedding o’clock with these cute clock themed wedding ideas!
