Wedding Planning Tips
When planning your wedding, the easiest way to decide on a theme is to think of your own personality as a couple and as individuals and use that to influence your style. Individuals often have traits and styles that are characteristically and uniquely their own and a wedding should be able to reflect the union of two personalities.
Since everyone has their own interests, unique wedding ideas should be easy to find based on those interests. Getting to know the bride and groom is the key to crafting a unique wedding.
For starters, it is important to know if the engaged couples share the same tastes. Are they both contemporary or are they country? If they have distinctive tastes, finding a way to merge their styles into a theme that encompasses these differences is essential to the success of a wedding.
Most couples go for weddings with themes nowadays. Whatever the theme, whether it's beach, country, modern, or wine, a theme is the easiest way to plan a wedding because it allows every other element to take that theme into account. Additionally, themes give room for unique wedding ideas to flourish and create a deeper impression than weddings without them.
Once a theme is chosen, finding the perfect wedding supplies is a breeze. Personalize your table runners and aisle runners with a monogram that can serve as a signature stamp for the rest of your decorations and even wedding favors. If you would like to do something a little different from a monogram, consider using a favorite quote or even a song lyric as the element that ties in your supplies including your personalized napkins instead of a monogram.
For a twist on the traditional guest book, use a personalized signature frame with a photo of the bride and groom within a photo mat. Guests can leave messages with a marker on the photo mat. For contemporary weddings, opt for a frame with a metal mat and have guests leave messages through an engraving pen for a sophisticated finish. A personalized signature platter is a fresh take on this wedding tradition and can be saved for years to come.
Rose petals are a great way to shower the bride and groom as they make their exit from the ceremony, so be sure to hand out metallic paper cones filled with rose petals before the ceremony. This is one of many details that will make your guests feel welcome and allow the day to flow smoothly.
Add color to traditional table decoration with silk flower petals, customized with the newlyweds' names and wedding date. Scatter them on the tables and finish off the look with a pretty centerpiece. Personalized leaves instead of silk petals will be an excellent fit for fall weddings, and sand and seashells would make a great beach theme.
If you're having a destination wedding, luggage tags can make great place card holders and wedding favors. You can also combine your favors with the décor using personalized square coasters or picture frames.
You can add a contemporary spin on Asian-themed weddings with frosted Chinese takeout boxes as candle holders and you can then use lucky bamboo plants as accent pieces and custom fortune cookies for favors.
For a romantic and elegant theme, delight guests by slipping wine cork candles on the mouths of wine bottles and handing mini champagne bottles filled with bubbles as wedding favors. For garden-themed weddings, a miniature favor pail filled with treats should do the trick.
There are unlimited items for every theme imaginable. Just remember to get clear on what you want and you're bound to create an unforgettable event for yourself and your guests.
