Take Your Wedding from Ordinary to Extraordinary

 

10 Ways to Take Your Wedding from Ordinary to Extraordinary

 

1. Choose barware that fits your theme: Serving mojitos in Mason jars at a beach themed wedding adds charm to the cocktail hour.

2. Frame pictures of family and friends and place them around their table assignment. Everyone enjoys a little walk down memory lane!

3. Have an artist make a custom logo for your wedding and print it on invitations, place cards, napkins etc. Find an image that’s meaningful to you and your man like a hobby or place.

4. Surprise guests with a handwritten note in each place card (“Michelle, thanks for flying in from Australia!”). People never forget this kind-of attention to detail.

5. Tie the napkins with something that fits in with the theme of the wedding. Use metallic cording, braided leather laces, or even pieces of twine… get creative!

6. Instead of a traditional guestbook, find a large glass vase and have guests sign stones and place them in the vase. Then you can take the vase home and use it as a beautiful décor piece!

7. Another guest-book idea: Leave a glass bowl with cards and pens beside it, with a note asking guests to contribute a favorite memory of you or your husband.

8. Ask your musically gifted friends to bring along their instruments to the reception and take the stage at some point during the night.

9. And if there’s a talented singer in your crowd, ask him or her to perform a song at the reception.

10. Attach a ribbon embellished with your birthstone to your bouquet to make it more meaningful.
