Do you want to do a little something different for your wedding reception? Have a look at these unique wedding decorations and ideas that add personality and style to your marriage event.
An interesting decoration for an outdoor reception would be to place a couple of birdbaths near the tent opening. Fill with water and float flowers such as lilies along with floating candles.
For a garden wedding theme, purchase straw hats and turn them upside down. Line the hats with thick plastic and place a florist's foam block in the bottom. Wet down the foam and create an arrangement of wildflowers for table centerpieces.
Set up a bubble machine near the entrance to the reception hall for a festive flair as everyone enter.
For a Christmas wedding, make or buy gingerbread houses to use as table centerpieces.
Use tulle or netting and hang it above the dance floor. Fill with multi-colored balloons. Release the balloons during a special point in the reception.
If this is a second marriage for one or both of you, and if you have children from the previous marriage, a beautiful way to honor your blended family is to set up a photo tree at each guest table as your centerpiece. Feature photos of the children, yourselves and some special times you've all had together.
When you send out your wedding invitations, request the invited guests to send a favorite recipe along with their RSVP response. Create a special recipe book from all the recipes you receive. Then photocopy all the pages and bind them in between decorative stock paper or small binder. Hand these out as favors to your guests when they arrive. What a pleasant surprise it will be to see the recipes that they contributed inside.
Not everyone has a traditional wedding cake. In France, a croque-en-bouche is used instead which is basically a tall pyramid of caramel-coated cream puffs.
Instead of using cake toppers, couples in Bermuda top their cakes with a tiny sapling tree. After the wedding, the couple will plant the tree in their yard where they can watch it grow over the years.
