5 Great Wedding Ideas

Bells ringing, confetti raining down, raucous laughter; another wedding is here and there’s nothing but gaiety filling the air. Weddings present you with so much to do, don’t they? Yeah, but that only applies to weddings that are well-planned and carefully thought-out. The great ideas listed below should add a touch of ‘unique flair’ to your wedding.

  • A Bouquet is So Much More

As lovely as your bouquet is, why not turn into a vessel which conveys a message to your friends, loved ones, and anyone in attendance? Pin a photograph pf someone dear to you on the bouquet, or tie an item that holds sentimental value for you or both you and your spouse-to-be. Be uninhibited; do whatever feels right for you. After all, it’s your wedding.

  • Drink Coasters Stave Off the Thirst

Coasters could be a creative way to make sure drinks are left where they are on the table. Your guests can go enjoy themselves without the worry of their drinks being cleared or nicked, so to speak.

  • Seats Bring Us Together

Believe it or not, even altering the seating arrangement can add some excitement to your wedding. Instead of straight, formal rows, set the chairs in more of a circular or oval pattern around you. This way, you literally become the center of attention (pun intended), and it makes your guests feel more included in the wondrous event.

  • Never Forget Your Ribbons

If you’re not too keen on ‘making it rain’ with confetti, why not go for something a little less messy and more vibrant? Ribbons wands are the perfect solution. They can be made in colors to shame a rainbow, and they can pretty much go with any theme you can think of. And you can display them as a feature too, so when it comes to versatility, you can’t beat good, colorful ribbons.

  • One-of-a-kind RSVP Cards

Go beyond hat’s expected of you and design RSVP cards that speak of you and your partner. Write words on the cards that are clear reflections of your personalities. There’s really no need to be formal here or fancy here. Your honest words from the heart should do just fine.

So, there you have it. 5 great ways to make your wedding stand out from the rest. Try some or all of them and make the celebration one to remember. And hire Amanda-Lina’s to make sure your beautiful bride is cloaked by the finest wedding dress we’ve yet made.
