The Little Things

Fun touches that will make your big day one of a kind.

Fairest Chair

Your places of honor should be distinguishable from the seats of your guests. Decorating the bride and groom chairs is the perfect way to express your big day status. Hang fun wooden signs from the back of the chairs that identify each of you with phrases like “Bride & Groom”, “Mr. Right & Mrs. Always Right” or even “Avere & Tenere” (Italian for “To have and to hold”). Another unique option is hanging picture frames with your silhouettes behind you. For something simpler, a ribbon carrying an ampersand (&) can string the two chairs together, representing the bond the newlyweds share.

Ice Cream Bar

Provide something cool and sweet for your guests to enjoy at your warm and inviting reception. Ice cream bars make it easy to offer something different and customizable for every guest to enjoy. There’s such a vast amount of flavors and toppers to choose from that everyone will be able to find something, regardless of dislikes or allergies. This kind of station will also encourage them to socialize with one another as they make their way to the bar for seconds or thirds.

Light It Up

Your table centerpieces are your reception flair, and some couples have chosen to go beyond the vases of flowers and bring a touch of technology to their tables by adding lights. Lighting inside centerpieces can be achieved easily depending on the size of the centerpiece and the degree of light wanted. Try battery-powered string lights—you can coil them around the stems of the flora or hang them from the limbs of a manzanita branch. Another option for adding a little sparkle to your centerpieces is adding LED lighting to the bottom of the vase of your choice. Don’t forget to dim the lights for important dances so your glowing centerpieces can set a great mood.
