:::Original Wedding Ideas:::

Your friends have: Identical bouquets for their bridesmaids to carry.


We prefer: An array of alternating monobotanic blooms in the same colour family.


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-1


Your friends have: Framed family photos “artfully” scattered throughout their reception space.


We prefer: This ingenius portrait of a bride holding a picture of herself as a little girl (a picture of her mother or grandmother on their respective wedding days would work equally well).


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-2


Your friends have: Decided to cut back on costs (or ecological impact) of their wedding by using silk flowers instead of real ones.


We prefer: These insanely stylish alternatives carved from balsa wood (also called sola or tapioca wood). You can buy them in bulk at Save-on-Crafts.com.


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-3


Your friends have: Passed out paper cones filled with rose petals for the post-ceremony jubilation.


We prefer: A confetti bar where guests can mix their own glittery concoctions to toss at you.


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-4


Your friends have: Ditched the banquet hall for a barn in the country.


We prefer: Taking the country setting one step further with haystack ceremony seating (draped with white linens for a more refined look).


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-5


Your friends have: A straight and narrow aisle to walk down.


We prefer: A whimsical winding “road” that will make even skeptics believe in fairytales.


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-6


Your friends have: A rose petal path or monogrammed aisle runner.


We prefer: A bold, modern graphic design, like these ombre arrows “directing” the bride down the aisle.


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-7


Your friends have: A candy buffet.


We prefer: Strolling waiters with old-timey candy trays (talk about a knockout presentation!)


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-8


Your friends have: Distinguished their groom and groomsmen with boutonnieres.


We prefer: A “boutonniere bar” inviting every male guest to look dapper for your big day. Tip: to ensure the male members of you bridal party still stand out, consider using different materials for the boutonniere bar. Flowers made of paper, fabric or wood are equally festive options, as are bright, colourful buttons.


Your friends have Identical photo 3413544-9


Your friends have: Have sent you home with a monogrammed sugar cookie which you’ve already demolished in a fit of drunken munchies.


We prefer: Sending guests home with “hangover kits”. Not sure what to include? Try Tylenol, Pepto-Bismol, saltine crackers, sleeping masks and water bottles.

Love this Lorna!!! Especially the strolling waiters! Ahh that is so cute! I wish I had that at my wedding. (If I had it would have been really weird though. I would need to have had a completely different theme for it to work hahaha)
