I'm like any other bride. I want our wedding to be different. I don't want to do everything like everyone else. There are minor touches along the way that I hope you'll notice this. :)
For now, I've been saving ideas on Pinterest that I may or may not end up doing. Can't ruin surprises!
The only children at our wedding weekend will be in the wedding party/our nieces and nephews (only a few). It was important to me to have our wedding baby/children free for many reasons but here are some - 1. Our reception will end late at night - they should be in bed. 2. Our reception venue is not a place for children. 3. I want my friends to have fun just like we all did 3, 4, or 5 years ago at their wedding when children weren't in the picture. 4. I'm not interested in crying babies at our ceremony. 5. At the end of the day, it just isn't a place for children. (Sorry if these are blunt, I'm just being honest! Did you all feel the same way for your wedding?)
But I do want to have our family children there for as much of it as they are up for. That's important to me. So, I want to have something fun for them to do.....and my secrets stop there. Because some of their Mama's read this blog. ;)
The sunglasses below are too cute. I think I may have to get some el cheapo ones for my ladies to wear for a picture. I also dream of having them wear their cowboy boots for another picture. How fun would that be?! Elegance and country all at the same time!
Also in the top right picture (below) you'll see there are little tags on the dresses. How many weddings have you been in where you don't know which bridesmaid dress is yours because they're all hanging in the same closet? My friend Christina introduced me to this concept! Genius.
The Mrs. hanger in the middle below. I know this isn't a new concept but I just think it's super fun. I've already had one made from Etsy. I keep telling Kevin's Mom that it is hers! It just doesn't seem real that the name will also be mine on that day!
And I just think this idea is super cute and easy to do. I may have to do this for Christmas 2013! Slice an extra invitation and put it all into a clear ornament.
Tell me any unique ideas that you did at your wedding or for your bridesmaids!
