Dramatic Decor

Torn between a few decor ideas? Narrow them down to three themes and do it up! With weddings, you generally have three spaces to decorate: the ceremony location, the cocktail hour space, and the reception room. Think of each as a blank canvas and let the creative juices flow.

Wedding Wonderland

We believe your wedding should be a reflection of who you are as a couple. If you are a fun-loving couple, we love the idea of putting a twist on the traditional wedding and giving it an unexpected, yet classy theme. Since so much detail goes into a wedding, there are many places to add elements of your theme to make it a different and fun experience, yet maintain the reverence of the big day.

 

We love the Alice in Wonderland Theme because it is magical and classic. Here are some ideas:

1. Awesome Invites

2. Magical Venue

We love this venue in Charleston, South Carolina! Look at the gardens! Who says you have to leave the country for a destination wedding? 

3. Crazy Wedding Cake

4. Great Sign-age

Put the "eat me" sticks in cupcakes or appetizers. You could customize various signs throughout your venue-

Drive Me: Sign on the road of your venue.

Read Me: On your programs.

Write Me: Sign next to your guest book.

Drink Me: Attached to the welcome drink at cocktail hour.

Use Me: Sign on the soap in the washrooms. 

 

5. Top Hats

Gather a bunch of funky top hats, and rent a polaroid camera. Have guests take pictures and insert them into your guest book (see previous post for a great retailer).

What do you think? Will you have a themed wedding?

Play With Your Food

When it comes time to pick decor for your aisle, the options can be overwhelming. Do you want the traditional fabric runner? Hurricanes and candles? Flower petals? Pomanders? Or...Why not try something a little different? Check out the food based aisle decor that caught our eyes.

This is stunning. Clean lines, the most perfect shade of green. We love how the stacked limes create an element of depth down the aisle. And, they  could be used during the reception in the drinks! How resourceful!

Getting married in fall? Pumpkins are easy to come by, inexpensive, and so festive. We love the look.

 

Which food will YOU choose?

Choosing a Color Palate

(Source)

How in the world do you choose your wedding colors? Here are some helpful hints:

-Keep your location in mind. Choose colors that will compliment your surroundings. Getting married by the water? Choose colors that will will go with that vibrant ocean blue.

-What season will you be getting married? Darker colors like burgandy, chocolate brown and deep purple are generally for colder weather, while teals and pastels are great for summer and spring.

-What kind of mood are you going for? A whimsical and romantic feel will be evoked with pastels and soft shades of pinks. A dramatic effect can be felt with bright pops of color.

P.S. Don't forget the Sensational Centerpieces!

Think it may be hot out there for your outdoor ceremony? Keep guests hydrated by placing a basket of bottled water (featuring your monogram, of course!) next to the programs. Guests can grab a program and a bottle of water to keep themselves cool during your exchange of the vows.

Program Talk

(Source)

 

We at Jetting To The Wedding really like the idea of using the program as a platform to tell your story. You can make a little booklet that gives all the necessary information of the ceremony that's about to take place, and you can follow it up with additional pages that guests can read before the ceremony starts. You might include information about each person in the wedding party- how you met, your best memory with them, etc. You might include an engagement photo of you and your spouse to be and write a special note of thanks to your guests for joining you. You may want to include pictures of loved ones who cannot be there with you to celebrate, but whom you'd like to honor on your big day. The possibilities are endless and it would really give the program personal touch.

Decor with Flameless Candles

 

(Source)

Yep, you read that right- flameless candles! What a miracle for savvy brides everywhere! They are battery operated, so fire hazard they are not. You could put them in holders and hand them from the ceiling for soft, romantic light. You sould use them as centerpieces, in the bathrooms, at the ceremony site... the possibilities are endless. To top it off, they are made of wax and some even come scented, so they look and smell like your regular candle! Seriously, a miracle!
