Idea of the Day: Be Unique

Creating your own vibe for a wedding can be difficult at times, but all you need is a spark of inspiration to help you craft an idea into your own. Here are fun and unique ideas to ensure your wedding is unforgettable!

Have mirrored tops for your wedding? In lieu of place cards write your guests names directly onto the table!

Love monograms and want your groom to match you? Add a pop of color to is monogrammed cummerbund.

Use fun knobs to hold your escort cards 

Do you love champagne and he loves bourbon...don't select just one signature drink, have two!

Love a color? Be bold with it.

Want to have mail when you get back from your honeymoon? Have your guests write postcards for you at the reception and have your wedding planner mail them while you are away!

The best advice we can give, is to just be yourself. Let your personality shine through in the details and your guests will notice.
