All you need are a few exciting details that will not compromise the integrity of the original design. All eyes will be on you, and everyone will be amazed at the additional touches that define your style.
Our favourite ways include adding a cape or bolero to your dress. You can also add a pop of colour to a white or ivory gown with a belt or sash. Or, if you are the adventurous type, add an unexpected twist to your wedding outfit with a coloured crinoline that peeks out at the hemline.
Unexpected Bouquet Elements
Make your bridal bouquet stand out by adding unexpected elements that enhance its beauty.
Feathers, grass, and fruits will add a Boho vibe. Meanwhile, jewelry and faux flowers can make it look regal. You can also make your bouquet stand out by its mere proportions. Consider using large flowers and cuttings of grass in a loose arrangement for a stunning statement bouquet.
Welcome baskets are the perfect gift to make your guests feel appreciated and loved. This single gesture suggests how much you appreciate their presence and their willingness to go the extra mile to be a part of your special day. It is ideal for out-of-town guests who fly in to attend your wedding.
You can buy gift sets at stores. However, it is equally easy to create a customized collection of things in an attractive package. For example, you can include snacks, toiletries, and essentials to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Don’t forget to add a welcome note, a wedding itinerary, and a medical emergency kit to the collection. Then, pack all the items into a quaint gift basket, tote, or bag that they can take away with them after the event.
Photographs are the best reminders of your fondest life memories. So add a photo wall to your wedding décor to honour your past, and walk your guests down memory lane.
There are many benefits to adding this custom touch to your wedding day. Firstly, it is affordable. Additionally, it will be a conversation starter and an excellent décor prop.
Add a photo wall to a cozy corner of your wedding venue where it is bound to get noticed. You can use images from when you first met to your engagement and further beyond to communicate the story of your relationship. Or you can use photographs with family and friends to highlight your close associations and best life experiences.
Customized Wedding Monogram
Create a custom monogram that combines your initials with artistic flair. It will be a perfect detail to represent your wedding.
Not only do such monograms add elegance and sophistication to the event, but they also give you something to brand your wedding elements. You can use a free monogram maker to design one yourself or entrust the task to the pros.
Celebrate your newfound status as soon-to-be newly-weds by using your monogram liberally throughout the wedding. No matter what the wedding detail is, you can almost always work your wedding monogram into it.
Use the design to accent wedding centrepieces, invitations, décor accessories, place cards, and even napkin holders. You can also include it on coasters, mugs, glassware, gift bags, and thank you cards.
Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses
Bridesmaids are a big part of the wedding scene and what they wear makes an impact on your wedding photographs.
The bridesmaid’s dress selection is often a daunting task as brides must find dresses that match their wedding theme while satisfying the tastes of their bridesmaids. Fortunately, the mismatched bridesmaid trend will allow your bridesmaids to celebrate their individuality while making their looks matter.
Worried whether the bridal party will end up looking too disjointed? Well, you can decide how mismatched your bridal party will be by setting down the selection criteria. Then, let the girls pick dresses that flatter them while adhering to your selection criteria. There are two benefits to taking this route. First, your bridal party will feel comfortable and confident. Additionally, it will also inject personality and excitement into the wedding celebrations and photographs.
Unconventional Wedding Dress
Not a big fan of the traditional white wedding dress? Well, it is the biggest day of your life, and you should love what you wear on this special occasion.
Forego convention and amaze your guests with an unexpected choice as your wedding dress, why it doesn’t even have to be a dress! You have plenty of options ranging from colourful gowns to printed wedding dresses and even smart separates to choose from. Embellishments like sparkles, flowers, feathers, and fringes are fashion-forward choices for bold brides.
Shop outside the traditional wedding dress aisle. Instead, ask your wedding dress consultant for non-traditional wedding outfits to discover a world of options that will set you apart from the crowd.
An Exciting Getaway
The wedding exit is a celebratory culmination of the festivities on your wedding day. So skip the traditional route and opt for something unique to make your send-off memorable.
Make sure to discuss it thoroughly with your event planner to pull it off in style. If you are on a budget, opt for glow sticks, bubbles, or balloon releases as your props of choice. Artificial snow is another photogenic prop.
You can also consider walking away to the musical ringing of tiny bells by your wedding guests. And while planning a unique getaway, don’t forget the vehicle for your flashy exit. How about a retro motorcycle, golf cart, or even motorboat if it is a waterside venue? Or spare no expense and go off in a horse carriage, or dare we say a hot air balloon!
