1. Blooming into 2015
Most of you are planning for your 2015 weddings now. One of the wedding trends for 2015 is hanging blooms. There are so many different ways to execute this look. You can hang floral in jars to align your aisle or hang flowers at different heights above the altar. If you are getting married outdoors, you could consider embellishing the trees with hanging floral throughout the property.
When choosing your gown and accessories, put your own special twist on it. What better day then your wedding day to represent yourself and your unique style. The same goes for your groom, if he has a loud, playful personality, let him show that side by wearing some fun colorful socks or an interesting boutonniere.
3. Toast your bride
So many times the groom or the newlyweds will give a speech but all too often the groom will forget to toast his lovely bride. It’s a sweet touch for the groom to recognize his new wife and say something nice. And don’t forget to thank your guests!
4. My kind of party
The rehearsal dinner is a great moment to spend time with your wedding party and family before the big day. It’s the pre-party before the big day, so kick back and have a relaxing get-together and cherish this time spent with one another. Even better yet, try to have it two nights before the wedding, in case some people have a little too much fun and they need one day to recover.
5. Nothing but the hits
Most brides have a “must play” music list for their wedding months prior to the wedding. Burn CDs of your wedding music and give them as favors to your guests. It’s fun because your guests will play the CD and the memories will replay the night of your wedding.
6. Repurpose this and that
One of the biggest trends that isn’t showing any signs of going away is repurposing frames, windows, and doors to use as wedding signage. You can get really creative by using an old frame as a chalkboard, or put new glass in windowpanes and use dry erase markers for your wedding messages! They can be used as menus, programs, and/or directions.
7. Set the mood
Lighting is so important at any event to set the mood. There are many ways to make a big impact with lighting. A great way to create a stunning feel is by using curtains of Christmas lights for a dramatic look. It will really brighten up and fill your space as well as creating beautiful ambiance.
