How you and your significant other travel can can a lot about you personalities. It’s important to make sure that the mode of transportation you arrive and leave in matches the rest of the wedding, however. For instance, it might not send a consistent message if your wedding is following a vintage theme and then you pull up in hot pink Hummer limos.

I love this photo so much because it shows how easy it is to have some fun with your vehicle and show your personalities.

This is perfect for a beach wedding and a great way for the couple to truly be alone together during their first moments as husband and wife.

A carriage is always a possibility; mostly because they are so adaptable. You can find them in all sorts of styles to pick one that fits you the best.

An old vintage car is usually a great vehicle because it will win over the guys (car credibility) and the girls (it will look awesome).

 

 

 


There are many details of your wedding but there is one that has a sole purpose of perfecting pictures, raising you’re level of happiness even higher, and letting everyone at your wedding express their support and excitement. There are a number of items you can request your guests shower you and your significant other with as you leave the ceremony space and head to the reception area.

Rice is the traditional option. It is a classic decision made for the bride looking to keep some traditions alive in her wedding.

Confetti is great because you can choose not only the colors of the confetti but also the shape of the individual pieces which can really make your wedding pop.

Bubbles are another great option because they reflect all kinds of colors and demonstrate the bliss and whimsical mood of the couple and their loved ones.

Flowers

Flower petals are great for an outdoor setting because they are biodegradable so you don’t worry about missing pieces when you cleaned up. They also will add a great sent to your departure which will leave the guests feeling even better.


How many times have you been to a wedding and a screaming baby ruined the mood and distracted everyone when they should be focused on the couple and their love. If you want to invite younger guests to your wedding to include them or be more accommodating to the parents keep them entertained and quiet with these little details.

A coloring book can easily keep younger children satisfied during the ceremony or even give them something to do during the actual reception. It is also an opportunity to provide personalized keepsakes to remember the day.

The kids would love a personalized scavenger hunt. This one shows a scavenger hunt for outdoors but you could easily alter the tasks to fit an indoor reception.

The food and drink options for kids are bound to be different but try making them pop with these details. A mason jar sippy cup, crazy straws, mini burgers, and cookies with milk can leave a lasting impression on your youngest guests. 


Every body gets them an skims though when they get bored during the ceremony but couldn’t your program be so much more than that? If you give some attention to this detail of your ceremony it can change the whole attitude the guests have about sitting through your wedding no matter how long the ceremony is.

If your wedding is going to be outdoors, it isn’t a bad idea to make your program into some kind of a fan. It will then serve a functional use as well as an informative one.

I love love love this program. It has a bright pop of color but the design of the program and the print used is so elegant and pretty. It really is the best of both worlds.

If you have a classy and chic taste in programs, one similar to this would be perfect. The peacock feather gives the program enough embellishment to not come across as boring but it is still clean and simple.

If your looking to save a little money or trying to stay green a chalkboard program is the option I suggest. One large chalkboard at the entrance to the space lets everyone get the information you want them to have and at the same time cutting down on something most guests would just throw away the next day.

Giving each guest their own personal handkerchief is such a cute way to let them know how much it means that they share this special day with you. I would only suggest this for close, intimate weddings as it could drive costs up quickly.

If the bride and groom were high school sweethearts or they want to incorporate their childhood memories into their ceremony, these programs will be perfect.


The ring bearer is usually one of the cutest aspects of the ceremony. Guests usually crane their necks to get a peek of the ring bearer as he presents something to the new couple that they will wear everyday for the rest of their lives, something that will forever signify their love, commitment, and dedication to each other. Don’t overlook this detail.

For a beach wedding, why not present the rings in a more organic manner? Placing them in a shell symbolized the natural love present between the couple. Make sure you have a reliable ring bearer if the rings are just sitting on top of the sand like in this picture, you don’t want the rings to be dropped on the beach!

If the bride and groom have a favorite furry friend they would like to incorporate in the wedding, a ring bearer position can be the perfect fit. Dogs usually work better than other pets just because they tend to come when you call them. You want a reliable and well-trained pet that will stick to the plan.

 Help your ring bearer understand he is an important part of the wedding ceremony. He will hold an extremely important part of the wedding so make him feel as special as he is.

If the wedding is outdoors or if the couple loves spending time in nature a moss bed is perfect for holding the rings.The addition of a splash of color can highlight the silver rings as essential symbols of the couple’s love.

A fun craft the couple can do together before the wedding is to make their own ring bearer box. They can personalize not only the exterior of the box but maybe they can each choose different fabrics to cushion the rings.

A book can also be used to hold the couple’s rings. For couples who are spiritual or religious a bible can be the perfect thing to demonstrate the holy unity of the newlyweds. A novel or some type of literature that the couple really shares a love for can also be the ideal way to present the rings.

Some future brides will have to face a difficult decision: Should you buy your dress off the rack, or should you have it custom made?

There are advantages and disadvantages to both options:

Off-the-rack:

Positives:

  • You can try on various styles before making a final decision.
  • Prices available for any range.
  • Many designers to choose from.
  • Same day decision can be made.

Negatives:

  • If you value uniqueness, there’s bound to be someone out there with the exact same gown you’re wearing.
  • Sizing may be difficult for some customers.
  • Designs available may not match expectations.

Custom/Couture

Positives:

  • Your design can be completely original.
  • Exact fit is guaranteed.
  • Fabric and color are your choices.
  • Style options are unlimited.

Negatives:

  • Prices will be higher.
  • The wait for the completed gown will be longer.
  • Various styles cannot be tried on.

Whatever decision you make, thoroughly consider both options!


An outdoor wedding is becoming more and more popular and now that its getting warmer, I’m sure you are seeing inspiration all around you. Whether your destination is an old barn, the beach, a colorful garden, or a serene mountain setting decorating your space and making it your own can seem harder than you originally thought. 

Lighting to Set the Mood

Utilize the natural props offered in your ceremony space. This couple chose to hang lanterns from a large tree. As you can see don’t stress about making the lanterns uniform, it just adds to the uniqueness of the design.

If the destination has smaller trees surrounding the space you can adorn them with lights as well. This technique can even be used to direct the guests to the ceremony space if they are walking to the ceremony space from the parking lot.

Show Them The Way

Show the guests to their seats by using natural flower petals. You avoid worrying about scraps being left behind after the ceremony because it won’t harm the environment. This can also be used to highlight the aisle the bride will make her way down.

This rustic sign post can direct your guests with ease and you can easily come up with creative ways to point out destinations such as, “I do!” for the ceremony space.

Don’t forget to consider the weather on your wedding day and to properly prepare your guests to sit through the heat of spring and summer.

Give the guests a chance to take a peek at where you came from by using surrounding trees to display your favorite childhood photos or even recent photos of the couple.

Displaying a Touch of Nature

If you don’t have many structures to highlight the space, because maybe the focus of the setting is geared towards an amazing view, you can easily make your own. It’s important to still make the structure look like it belongs outdoors though which is done here with the flower accents.

Using hollowed out log or branch as a vase to showcase the natural beauty of the ceremony space, which is probably why you chose this destination to get married in the first place.
