Wedding Wednesday!

11 Apr

One thing I have seen a lot of emphasis on in wedding magazines, blogs, and on Pinterest recently is not just the actual ceremony itself, but more specifically the aisle the bride and her wedding party will walk down.  The walk down the aisle is one of the main focal points of the ceremony besides the actual vows of course, and so the theme of this weeks Wedding Wednesday is all about ways to make your aisle creative and something your guests will remember!

1. Personalized Aisle Runner

I LOVE this idea!!  It so personalized and creative and I love how guests will be able to follow your story as they walk down the aisle to find there seats!

With the recent passing of my friend Matt who lost his year-long battle with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, it really opened my eyes to how short life can be and how much many of us take life for granted.  I stumbled upon the Wish Upon A Wedding organization last spring when I was looking for jobs post-graduation and was amazed to read about such a great organization. 

Wish Upon A Wedding is the first non-profit organization that provides weddings to couples facing life-altering circumstances or terminal illnesses.  The organization takes care of all the details that go into a wedding that these couples often don’t have the time, energy, or money to do so on their own.  Wish Upon A Wedding makes it so couples can relax and enjoy their special day, by asking for donations from wedding professionals.  If you are in the wedding or event industry and want to apply to be a “wish granter” so you can provide your goods and services to amazing couples on their special day, please check out the Wish Upon A Wedding website to get involved

Not in the wedding or event industry but still want to do something? You can incorporate Wish Upon A Wedding into your wedding with their complimentary “In Lieu Of Gifts” or $1 “Favor” cards.  You can also volunteer with a local chapter (Boston was started last summer!) or host your own fundraising event!

One thing that can make or break your wedding memories are the pictures you have to look back on.  Photography is one aspect of your wedding that you shouldn’t try to be frugal about, because having a poor or inexperienced photographer will reflect on the pictures you receive.  You don’t want to be disappointed in the pictures taken on your big day, so be sure to interview possible photographers and really let them know what you’re looking for out of your pictures.  Today’s Wedding Wednesday will feature some of my favorite wedding photography ideas!

1. Panoramic Photos

Panoramic Wedding Photos look to be a growing trend in photography for 2012.  I think these shots are so unique and really capture all your family and friends who came out and supported you on your special day! If you didn’t want it so posed I think a great panoramic photo moment would be at the reception while everyone is dancing!

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe…” 

 How will you incorporate something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue into your wedding to ensure good luck in your future?  Like most brides, thinking about the something blue can be stressful for you if blue isn’t in your color scheme.  Here are my favorite ways to add a subtle hint of  ‘something blue’ on your big day:

Take it from Kate Middleton, the simplest way to add “something blue” is incorporating it into your wedding dress.  Whether you sew your wedding date into the fabric of your dress, or just a blue ribbon like the Duchess of Cambridge did this is a great way to add a subtle hint of blue.

Button Table Numbers!

17 Jan

I recently got to design a table and booth for the company I work for at the Springfield Bridal Expo, which is held every year at the Big E!  I really wanted to keep this table simple yet elegant, and went with a color theme of khaki, dusty rose, pink, and pastel pink. For the centerpieces I used mason jars filled with small bouquets of baby’s breath and made the table number out of buttons!  (First seen over at The Knot!)The button table number was so easy to make and cost efficient, since the only thing I had to purchase was a frame and a sheet of scrapbook paper!

This weeks Wedding Wednesday theme is all about reception ideas to keep your guests entertained! Enjoy!

This would be great for any wedding with outdoor space.  If creating the silhouettes is too time consuming, why not just paint the boards your wedding colors and coordinate them with the bean bags!
