Reinventing popular wedding themes can help set your nuptials apart from the rest. Do you love lace but want to steer clear of its customary 'wedding-y' application? Why not take it out of the dress and introduce it, instead, into the decor? Try transforming your something blue into something everyone can appreciate during the reception. Or get creative and pay some attention to a dinner detail that may otherwise be overlooked (like the cutlery!)... And finally, flowers- flowers are the staple of a wedding, right? No matter what time of year, style, or theme, most weddings will feature florals. You may think their popularity would stifle any chance of making your wedding flowers unique, but it may be easier than you think! Try focusing your floral vision and budget on interesting installations: flowers strewn across a long table (in lieu of a fabric table runner), displayed with drama down a staircase, or flowing from the ceiling... Here are some sweet examples of how to make your special day truly special.
Wrapping a tree in lace is a beautiful way to marry nature and design...
'Something blue' can be found in a blue velvet table runner, bringing with it a sense of richness and luxury.
Choosing a unique set of cutlery is another way to add intrigue and interest to the overall appeal of your reception. Brass, gold, and rose gold are lovely choices... these black matte utensils are also a cool option!
Bring on the flowers: organize them in unexpected places or play with scale and arrangement. If you'll be making your grand reveal down a staircase before hitting the aisle, why not wrap the spindles with cascading mounds of flowers... Have fun and get creative!
