Planning Wedding Ideas

  • Whether you adore your pets or have a special place in your heart for a specific type of animal, it can be super-cute to incorporate this into your wedding décor. Here are a few ideas we’ve seen in real weddings.

    Centerpieces

    Animal topiaries are projected to be one of the hot décor items for 2015, and it’s a cute and subtle way to express your love for animals, whether you focus on a specific species or mix it up.

    Escort Cards

    From figurines to paper cut outs, your escort cards can provide a fun nod to your animal of choice. Aside from the pig and bird options shown here, we’ve also seen escort cards dedicated to cats, elephants, horses, and more!

    Invitations

    We love how this invitation style doesn’t go too over-the-top with the animal motif – it’s still totally appropriate and sweet.

    Guest Book

    What a fun idea for a guest sign-in board! Each guest signs a silhouette of a different sea creature – perfect for a wedding at an aquarium or near the water.

    Cake Toppers

    We’ve seen a lot of animal cake toppers lately, but these are two of our favorites – a nod to the couple’s pet pooches and fun deer-themed style.

  • It’s a classic image – a lovely little flower girl tossing petals down the aisle. However, some venues do not allow the tossing of petals (it can be a bit of a clean-up disaster, after all!), so what’s a flower girl to do? Fortunately, there are several alternatives items that are not only easy to create, but also fun for the little ones to carry during their big moment in the spotlight!

    Pomanders

    These balls of flowers (carnations are popular) feature a ribbon handle for easy carrying. Little ones may also love that they resemble a purse!


    Photo by Cavin Elizabeth Photography

    Wands

    Your little princesses will adore carrying ribbon wands down the aisle – they’re both fun for waving throughout the wedding, and also a nice keepsake to take home!


    Photo by April B Photography

    Bouquets

    Little girls who want to feel like grown-ups will love carrying their own miniature versions of the bridesmaids’ bouquet.


    Photo by Jack Looney Photography

    Garlands

    A garland of greenery is a unique alternative to a floral arrangement, and has a very Old World, vintage-inspired feel.


    Photo by Rebecca Yale Portraits

    Signage

    Your guests will get a kick out of these fun, and often DIY, signs, as your littlest attendants carry them down the aisle.

  • Your wedding doesn’t have to end with the last dance at the reception. Many couples are hosting after-parties to keep the celebration going until the wee hours. Here are a few ideas for after-party celebrations. 

    Relaxed Lounge

    Set up an outdoor or indoor lounge so your guests can relax and unwind after the wedding. Make sure the bar is still stocked and offer passed late-night snacks, like sliders and fries, for everyone to enjoy.


    Photo by Arnau Dubois Photography

    Lively Karaoke

    Late-night karaoke is a fun way to entertain your guests. Of course, the newlyweds get first dibs on picking a tune to sing, but then let all of your guests take a turn at the mic. As the night goes on (and the alcohol flows), expect the songs to get sillier and rowdier!


    Photo by Whitmeyer Photography

    Hit the Bars

    Move the party to a favorite local bar or hangout, or, for your guests’ convenience, it may be more appealing to host a post-party function in the bar of the hotel where everyone is staying. If you’re expecting a large group, see if you can book a private space or table in advance.


    Photo by June Lion

    Food Truck Fiesta

    After a long night of partying, your guests will likely be famished. What could be a better surprise than a food truck (or two) to feed your hungry revelers? Whether the trucks offer sweet or savory fare, your guests will certainly be appreciative.


    Photo by Joshua McDonald Photography

    Fun Bonfire

    Gather your guests ‘round a bonfire for a celebratory late-night event. From singing favorite songs to roasting marshmallows, it’s a fitting close to a joyful wedding day.

  • Whether your ceremony is long or short, you want your guests to be comfortable during the proceedings. Gift your nearest and dearest with useful items pre-ceremony to make sure this important event is even more memorable and enjoyable.

    Ceremony Programs
    Your guests will have a lot of questions during the ceremony. Who’s in the bridal party? What types of rituals should I expect? What’s that song? Answer your guests’ questions by providing them with programs – or post a sign that includes all of the pertinent information.


    Photo by IQphoto Studio

    Something to Drink

    In warmer weather, provide your guests with a refreshment either before the ceremony, or if drinks are allowed in your venue, during the event. Bottled water is a good bet, since it’s in a sealable container that’s less likely to spill – and a custom label adds a cute, personal touch.


    Photos by (from left): PW Photography, Jason Burns Photography

    Fans

    Fans can be a nice giveaway for indoor or outdoor ceremony in warmer climates. And by printing your ceremony programs on a fan, it will do double duty.


    Photo by Aaron Watson Photography

    Parasols

    If your outdoor ceremony is under a blazing sun, your guests will appreciate having the extra shade.


    Photo by Whittaker Portraits

    Sunglasses

    It’s a good idea to check out your ceremony location at the exact time when you’re planning on getting married. If you’re concerned your guests will be squinting in the sun, sunglasses are a good favor idea.


    Photo by Hearts and Horseshoes Photography

    Shawls or Blankets

    Depending where you’re getting married, there may be a risk of a slight chill in the air during the spring and fall seasons. That doesn’t mean you should avoid an outdoor ceremony entirely, but consider your guests’ comfort by providing them with shawls or blankets to cuddle up with.


    Photo by Nelly - Photographer

    Tissues

    Place boxes of tissues at the end of every row in case your guests shed some (happy!) tears.


    Photo by Hearts and Horseshoes Photography

    Something Fun for the Recessional

    Whether it’s confetti, ribbon wands, streamers, flower petals, or something completely different, asking your guests to wave or toss something during the recessional can add a fun celebratory element and make for a great photo op!

  • Turns out your smallest guests may be the most difficult to please. If you are hosting little ones at your wedding, check out these ideas for keeping them entertained and happy.

    Offer Appropriate Food

    Sure, some kids love fancy foie gras and filet mignon – but for more little ones, chicken fingers and mac and cheese will do just fine! Make sure you provide some kid-friendly options for cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert (though we think most sweets will be perfectly acceptable for kids’ palates!).

    Photo by Freshly Bold Photography

    Give Them Jobs

    Whether they’re the flower girl or ring bearer or handing out programs, kids feel important when they have a job to do. Even if it’s something as small as holding your bouquet during the first dance, little ones will feel so special and be more likely to behave themselves if focused on the task at hand.

    Photos by (from left): jHenderson Studios, Acqua Photo

    Provide Hula Hoops

    If your venue has a large outdoor space and you’re hosting a fairly casual affair, offer activities for your youngest guests. When providing games like hula hoops or bubbles, just make sure there are enough for all the kids so no one feels left out!

    Photo by Cramer Photo

    Play Corn Hole

    Corn hole is another fun games that guests young and old will enjoy. We also love that you can decorate the corn hole board in your own wedding colors and style!

    Photo by Joshua McDonald Photography

    Have a Piñata

    Who doesn’t love a piñata? Of course, the kids will flip, but adults will also love the touch of nostalgia.

    Photo by Nelly - Photographer

    Create a Cute Kids Table

    Kids may have difficulty sitting at their table for long stretches but if you provide them with activities like coloring books or small games, they’ll at least be occupied.

    Photo by Maiko Media

    Try “I Spy”

    Another activity for kids’ place settings – an “I Spy”-style game that encourages little ones (or those of any age) to look for various items around the wedding – from the mother-of-the-bride crying to a sparkly diamond. The one who finds all of the items first can win a prize – nothing like a little friendly competition!

    Photos (from left) by Julius Photography, Rachel Robertson Photography

    Have a Photo Booth

    Kids will not only love posing for silly portraits, but trying on different props and costumes is an activity in itself.

    Photo by Pasha Belman

    Think About Your Music Selection

    No, we’re not suggesting that you play “Old MacDonald” or “The Wheels on the Bus,” but lively Top 40 music appeals to younger people, who are often the biggest hits on the dance floor!

    Photo by Ian Grant Photography  

    One Word = Candy

    While their parents might not be a fan of the resulting sugar high, one thing is clear – kids love candy. As much as a wedding is already a pretty magical event, offering up candy will make it even more amazing for children!

  • One of the best parts of any wedding reception is the moment when all of your guests hit the dance floor. Add a little personality to your dance floor with one of these tried-and-true tips.

    Monogram It

    Adding your monogram to your dance floor in the color of your choice makes it uniquely personal – and definitely has a wow factor!

    Add Lighting Above…

    From lanterns to string lights, chandeliers, and more, there are lots of different ways to provide a romantic glow to your dance floor.

    …and Below

    Gobos are screens that are placed over lights to project a pattern onto a surface (like a dance floor). This can allow for your creativity to run wild – you can project your names, monogram, or a pretty motif onto the floor.

    Try a Pattern

    We love this couple’s floral patterned dance floor – it’s not only unique, but it really ties their reception décor together.

    Go for the Checkered Look

    Instead of the standard wooden dance floor, a black-and-white checkered surface will give your reception a classic, Old Hollywood feel.

  • Using fruit in your wedding décor can be a unique (and tasty!) idea. However, it’s important to make sure you’re using the right produce. It’s important to pick the hardiest types of fruit to ensure that there won’t be any rotting or unfortunate odors during the wedding. Here are five of our favorite fruits to use in wedding décor.

    Apples

    Apples are strong and firm fruit, meaning they can be used throughout your wedding décor, from centerpieces to escort cards and more. And because they are available in many colors, they can work with a variety of palettes.


    Photo by Richard Bell Photography

     

    Citrus

    Lemons, limes and orange are also quite versatile. Fill a clear centerpiece vase with whole fruit, or line a vase with slices. 


    Photos by (from left): Brandy and Beau, KLK Photography

     

    Pineapple

    What could be more ideal for a tropical wedding? Pineapples are certainly unique and modern, and can also be a little offbeat and edgy. We love seeing them used whole in centerpieces.


    Photos by (from left) Ali Harper, Rachel Robertson Photography

     

    Peaches

    This sweet fruit can add a lot of Southern charm to a wedding reception. Place a single peach on each place setting or a whole bunch in wooden boxes for a rustic (and budget-friendly!) centerpiece. 


    Photos by (from left) onelove photography, Daniel Kim Photography

     

    Plums

    We love the deep purple hue of a plum! Scatter them on the escort card table, or place a single fruit on each place setting for a detail that’s both lovely and totally edible.

  • Not only are postcards budget-friendly, but they can provide a shout-out to your hometown, the city where you’re marrying, or even places you’ve traveled and loved. Vintage postcards (available at flea markets or on eBay) provide a nostalgic touch, but really any type of postcard will do! Check out these five ways to incorporate postcards into your wedding.

    Table Names

    Instead of numbering your reception tables, name them after places you’ve traveled or landmarks in your home city or state. Use postcards as signs to mark each table.

    Photo by Fresh in Love Photography

     

    Save-the-Dates and/or Reply Cards

    You’ll save money on stamps by using postcards instead of card-and-envelope sets. You can even personalize the postcards by creating ones with your engagement photo as the main image.

    Photo by Lovely and Light

     

    Guest Books

    In lieu of a traditional guest book, ask your guests to write their well-wishes on postcards. You can then store the completed postcards in a fun vessel in your home.

    Photos (left to right) by Jodi Miller Photography and Dan and Melissa Photography

     

    Escort Cards

    Love this idea! Write your guests’ names in the “address” section of a postcard, their table number where the stamp would go, and a sweet thank-you message in the body of the card. Then string the postcards up on clotheslines and get ready to wow your guests!

    Photo by Stephen Ludwig Photography

     

    Easy Décor

    Postcards can help create a unique tablescape for your reception. Whether you put one at each place setting, or scatter them on the tables for a vintage-inspired touch, they are a fun addition to a travel-themed celebration.

  • Not only are postcards budget-friendly, but they can provide a shout-out to your hometown, the city where you’re marrying, or even places you’ve traveled and loved. Vintage postcards (available at flea markets or on eBay) provide a nostalgic touch, but really any type of postcard will do! Check out these five ways to incorporate postcards into your wedding.

    Table Names

    Instead of numbering your reception tables, name them after places you’ve traveled or landmarks in your home city or state. Use postcards as signs to mark each table.

    Save-the-Dates and/or Reply Cards

    You’ll save money on stamps by using postcards instead of card-and-envelope sets. You can even personalize the postcards by creating ones with your engagement photo as the main image.

    Guest Books

    In lieu of a traditional guest book, ask your guests to write their well-wishes on postcards. You can then store the completed postcards in a fun vessel in your home.

    Escort Cards

    Love this idea! Write your guests’ names in the “address” section of a postcard, their table number where the stamp would go, and a sweet thank-you message in the body of the card. Then string the postcards up on clotheslines and get ready to wow your guests!

    Easy Décor

    Postcards can help create a unique tablescape for your reception. Whether you put one at each place setting, or scatter them on the tables for a vintage-inspired touch, they are a fun addition to a travel-themed celebration.
