In Remembrance of Loved Ones

As hard as it is to lose a loved one, we still found a way to make sure that they're there in attendance on that special day. We thought these were such meaningful ways to signify those that are still, and always in our hearts!

For this first one, you just need a few small picture frames to do the trick!

This way, everyone really is there to walk you down the aisle!

And for the next one we found, all you need is one of dad's old shirts and someone who knows how to sew.

We thought that these were just too precious, and so thoughtful. What do you think?

Using Succulents in Bouquets

Have you ever thought about using succulents as your bouquet? Check out this complete succulent bouquet we found!

Gorgeous, right?! We love how modern they look. And the best part is, you could bring it home and plant it after the wedding! It's a great, fun way to make your bouquet last forever.

If you don't like the look of a total succulent bouquet, try just incorporating a few plants in with your bright flowers. They hold up amazing in the heat and give it such a unique and lush look!

Technology and Weddings

Since most of us are glued to our cell phones and flock to any new technology out there, we decided to talk about some of the most unique and fun ways we found to incorporate technology into your wedding. Not only can they add to your guests' overall experience, but they can give you and your hubby incredible memories of this special day.

Wedit sends the wedding couple 5 HD cameras in the mail 3 days before the wedding weekend. The couple passes them out to wedding guests to record all the fun festivities, and the couple returns the cameras to Wedit to edit. Wedit then edits the footage into a video! What a fun way for guests to share their unique memories and perspectives of your wedding!

Wedding Snap is another cool way to capture all your guests different experiences. It's a great way for couples to get a scrapbook of memories and engage guests in a fun activity. All your guests have to do is download this app, and you'll automatically get all the photos they take at your wedding collected in an online album from the app! Guests can even upload any digital images they took with their cameras after the event.

Would you be interested in using these fun ideas at your wedding? What are some other apps or ways you've seen technology incorporated into a wedding reception?

Unique Table Names

Everyone's seen normal table numbers used at wedding after wedding, right? How about this idea instead?!

Table Signs via The Bridal Closet and Bridezilla
We came across this on Solutions Bridal's Blog - The Bridal Closet and couldn't resist talking about it!

The "We go together like" sign gets put on the head table and then each pairing become the different names for your guest tables. We LOVE this! We would like to add "Peanut Butter and Jelly" and "Milk and Cookies" to the list too! Or "Coffee and Donuts," or "Syrup and Pancakes".... we could keep going! (I may be a little hungry as I'm writing this...)

Make the signs completly personalized to fun things that you both like as a couple. You could even explain the pairing with a cute note on the back for how it applies to your love story.

What would you name your tables? Comment and share with us!

Bridal Shoe Note

We saw this and couldn't help sighing at the complete romance!

My heart would melt if my groom did this for me - whose wouldn't?! Wouldn't it be sweet to do it for each other? It's so much more unique than a traditional card. You could even display the pair in your house somewhere with other special keepsakes from your day.

To Trash or Not to Trash?

Brides are becoming more and more creative and their wedding photos are reflecting it! Something becoming increasingly popular is the "Trash Your Dress" pictures!

This is perfect for brides that don't have a sentimental attachment to their dress or want to keep it boxed in the back of their closet for years.

Usually, brides want to take pictures like this... 
 But occasionally there are some that are more adventurous!

Water-skiing Trash the Dress 

And even some downright scary! Gives a whole new meaning to "taking the leap," huh?

Layered Signature Drinks

I know that we're into August now and the 4th of July's well past, but I came across these drinks and thought that they were the neatest idea!

Layered Drink via Creative Juice

These ones are themed for the 4th of July, but by just using different colored drinks, you could easily customize the look to any wedding color scheme. Ombre' would be a cinch to create! Plus how much fun would it be for you and your fiance to experiment with the tastiest combinations?!

All you need are full glasses of ice and three separate drinks with varying sugar contents. Start pouring the drink with the highest amount of sugar first.

For the full DIY instructions - click here

I can wait to head to the grocery store and try this one out for myself!

What do you all think - what drink flavors would you use?

Wedding Coffee

My love of Starbucks is not a secret to anyone - which is why when I saw this picture I had to talk about it here!!!


Is this not the best idea?! :) When else do you get to have your Starbucks cup say something as cool as that? It's romance in a cup!

They sell the double-insulated cups now too that you can write your usual order on to make them permanent - how awesome would it be to do this as a wedding keepsake for the coffee-loving couple?!

What do you think - wedding day coffee run, anyone?
