Planning a wedding can be a daunting task. From selecting invitations, finding a florist and choosing the perfect venue to picking out all the wedding supplies that will make the special day one your guests will remember. Careful planning and allowing for plenty of time to make your selections will ensure you have the wedding of your dreams.
When you start planning your wedding, one of the first things you need to do is choose your wedding colors. These colors will be carried through to your decorations, flowers, ribbons, right down to the icing on the cake. A good place to start gaining some color inspiration is by looking at what’s hot in fashion and wedding magazines.
Once your colors are chosen, it’s time to start picking out your wedding accessories. Aside from the wedding dress, these items serve as focal points and provide the overall look and personality to your wedding.
While the ceremony itself hasn’t changed much over the years, the wedding accessories have. As each year passes, we see new trends in the world of wedding stuff. Here are a few that have risen in popularity this past year:
More and more brides are making their wedding unique by using items such as a personalized aisle runner. Personalized aisle runners are available in a variety of colors and designs and add a truly one-of-a-kind look to the ceremony — what a stunning and elegant way to make a grand entrance! Personalizing the wedding with wedding supplies like this creates a lasting impression with guests while adding real flair to the occasion.
Gone are the traditional guest books, taking their place are signature plates and platters, signature frames and vases. Many brides are opting for these guest book alternatives due to their uniqueness and longevity after the ceremony. Unlike the guest book, these wedding accessories don’t get put into storage. They are designed to be displayed as pieces of artwork and serve as a constant reminder of the happiness and joy shared with friends and family. Plus, their timeless look and neutral colors makes them perfect for any room in the house.
One of the hottest trends to hit the wedding scene in quite some time has been the use of colorful and elegant peacock feathers to brighten up traditionally drab wedding accessories. A perfect example is the Peacock Wedding Set, which includes a silk guest book and matching silk pen, a silk flower girl basket and silk ring bearer pillow. The stunning colors contained in the feathers and sheer beauty of these items have quickly made them a must-have with countless numbers of brides.
Weddings are all about celebrating the love a couple has for one another and sharing that celebration with family and friends. As time goes on, that love is celebrated once again on milestone dates such as the 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries. It’s traditional to give a couple silver or silver-themed items for a their 25th anniversary and golden items for their 50th. And to make gift-giving easier (and more elegant) there’s a large range of new 25th wedding anniversary gifts and 50th wedding anniversary gifts available that already feature these colors or highlight the anniversary year. Many of these gifts can also be personalized and kept as commemorative keepsakes.
And if you’re planning your wedding celebration but want to get creative, look for family and friends on your guest list that may be celebrating an anniversary around your wedding date. Send along a small wedding anniversary gift with their invitation; they’ll be happy you remembered. The love you share now can one day come back on an anniversary of your own!
