Exceptional Wedding Ideas

1097350_wedding_ringsEvery bride and wedding planner in town wants to have a unique wedding celebration. The bride and the groom would want their wedding to have something unique for their guests to experience during the celebration. In addition to a unique wedding theme there are also many ways of celebrating the wedding that will make it truly special and one of a kind.

Having a photo booth on your wedding reception wherein guests can have their photos taken and printed immediately is a different way of giving them a remembrance on this special day. This photo booth should have a backdrop that should have the couples names printed on it repeatedly or can include a set-up of the wedding theme. The photos can be printed in duplicate one is for giving out as a wedding souvenir and the other one can be compiled in a scrapbook and guests can leave their messages to serve as a guestbook as well. Your guests will surely love this as they have dressed for the occasion and they will definitely want to have something to remember on what they looked like on your special day.

Table centerpieces is another way of customizing your wedding and making it unique. Flowers and candles are no longer the only option to use as a centerpiece on reception tables. If you wanted a plant to serve as your centerpiece, a succulent cactus is a great plant to use because it requires less maintenance and is available on different interesting shapes. Put the cactus in an elegant glass vase and wrap it with a ribbon in the color of the wedding motif.

The wedding venue is another way of making the wedding different from all the other weddings you knew. A lot of people have used a garden venue and beach venue so why not think of another venue to celebrate your wedding. Very few people have been married on a yacht, a cave, and a cinema theater so this can be an idea to have your celebration be held.

Having a unique wedding invitation is really a must on your quest to have an exceptional celebration. The invitation itself can say a lot on what your guests can anticipate on that day. Some ideas could be a magnet wedding invitation wherein your wedding invitation is printed on a magnetized material. Another idea would be to have it printed on poster size paper with artworks on it so your guests can have an option to have it hanged on their walls. The poster invitation can be encased on a paper tube. Some companies can print on any material so choose any object that will represent the couple and have the invitation wording printed on the object.

Many women would want to know the design ideas that will complement a beach wedding theme. Things that women should keep in mind is that the gown, table decorations, invitation, keepsake, shoes, entourage, program, menu should all complement each other in order to complete the perfect beach wedding theme.

The Dress
The good thing about a beach set up is you don’t have to wear anything fancy. Choose fabric that is light weight such as satins, silks and chiffons in colors like white, off-white, light green or blue, white, lime, and yellow.

Most of beach dresses have length that is just above the knee, this is advisable if you have long legs. For shorter legs choose a full size straight dress that will emphasize your torso.

Venue Decorations
For your venue decorations you could add a canopy made of rattan or bamboo poles with white gauze drapery. For your table setting you could use a galvanized vase or thick bamboo with sunflowers, plumerias, saltwater taffy or orchids, brown rice stalks and long slender leaves. At the bottom of the galvanized vase you could adorn it with sand and seashells. Use thin bamboo as stand for your place cards and insert a pen into a bamboo for your guestbook.

Music and Ambiance
Play reggae music and use live instruments like bongo and bamboo flute. If it is getting dark the venue should be lighted with bamboo torch that are evenly spread out across the venue for optimal lighting.

Invitations and Keepsake
For your wedding invitation idea you could use a weathered paper and scroll it. A bamboo stick or abaca rope can keep the paper from opening then insert a stem of orchid plant or glue a seashell unto it. Another great idea is to have your photos taken on a beach with words “I hope you could be here with us” and have it printed by a magnet wedding invitation company. For your wedding keepsake you could use a small glass bottle filled with beach sand and colorful beads, hung a string of abaca rope with a small seashell and a printed paper of the details of your event.
