Wedding Ideas and a Little Inspiration

Wedding Ideas

When it comes to creating a unique wedding that is absolutely unforgettable, a little imagination is required. This list of creative wedding ideas should help you plan elements into your magical day that represent the uniqueness of your relationship. Your wedding day is about celebrating your union, and should be all about that union. As you enjoy this list of wedding ideas, think of how you met, places you traveled along the way, important relationship milestones and common interests that you share. Put on your imagination hat and let’s get creative.

Wedding Ideas to Represent How You Met

Wedding ideas that represent how you met can be incorporated into your wedding or reception in subtle or significant ways. If you and your significant other bumped into each other at an airport while standing in line for a ticket, you might consider invitations that resemble an airline ticket. If it was a cup of coffee that brought you together, consider a coffee bar at your reception. Wedding ideas that represent how you met can be as simple as a table tent that is decorated like a menu from the restaurant where you had your first date or as complex as decorating the entire room to recreate the atmosphere. Think about how you met and get creative with these wedding ideas.

Your Wedding Invitations

If environment is something important to you and your partner, forgo the traditional paper wedding invitations and expensive postage with these invitation wedding ideas. Email wedding invitations are becoming a popular way to save the trees, money and stamps. Creating a wedding website with an online invitation and RSVP form is another trend among invitation wedding ideas. Electronic wedding invitations can be animated with the personal touch of a video created about you and your partner.

The in-house designers and planners can help you dream up wedding ideas that represent your relationship, and incorporate significant elements into your wedding and reception.

The Wedding Exit

These wedding ideas will make your wedding exit absolutely unique. If fireworks are significant to you and your partner, consider a sparkler exit to add something festive to your grand wedding exit. Family and friends form rows on each side to create an aisle for the newlyweds to make their grand exit. With all sparklers lit, the bride and groom walk beneath sparklers raised in the form of an honorary saber arch. A sparkler exit is among few wedding ideas that truly capture the festive magic of the moment.

Candy Bar Wedding Ideas

There are not many wedding ideas that taste as sweet as a candy bar. If you and your partner are candy lovers, adding a candy bar to your reception is a sure way to sweeten up the affair with something personal. Every candy bar should be strategically decorated with individually wrapped candies in colored foil to match your chosen theme and décor at your wedding venue. Get creative and mix and match the type and shape of candy from a variety of chocolate truffles, caramel balls, M&M’s, peanut butter cups, chocolate gems, twisted lollipops, swirly lollipops, rock candy sticks, pillow mints, jewels, and more. Get creative with these sweet wedding ideas, and make sure to choose the candy that means something special to you and your partner.

Photography Wedding Ideas

If you and your partner are passionate about photography, get creative with photography wedding ideas and consider a photo booth or an interactive photo mirror experience. The guests will enjoy the night taking photos with props and have an interactive experience with the selfie mirror. Wedding ideas that capture memorable photographs are always a beautiful way to create memories of your special day that fill your scrapbook. Some wedding photographers offer these creative photography wedding ideas. Check with your wedding venue to see if they have relationships with photographers that can create this magic.

Wedding Ideas

Dramatic Centerpieces

Candelabras are one of the best centerpiece wedding ideas. Candelabra wedding centerpieces make a dramatic effect, and can be decorated to incorporate your unique theme. If Paris is significant to your relationship, black candelabras with pink flowers will match a Paris theme perfectly. If a Gatsby theme with a jazz era statement is significant to your relationship, consider topping them with feathers and stringed pearls. Use your theme as a guide and get creative with the endless possibilities of candelabra wedding ideas.
