Wedding Wednesday: Think Outside the Box

I plan and coordinate about 8 - 10 weddings a month so unfortunately they all run together after awhile.  That's why I absolutely LOVE seeing new ideas and brides stepping outside of tradition and making their wedding and event to remember.  There's nothing wrong with tradition, and I know I've mentioned this before, but your wedding is the perfect time to showcase you and your fiance's personality!  Don't be afraid to be silly or quirky or just different than every other wedding you've already seen...who says Weddings have to be stuffy and conservative??  Here are a few cute/funny/different ideas I've pinned on Pinterest to share with my upcoming brides:


Hilarious 'Day After' Photos of Bride, Bride's Mother and Bridal Party:

And how many blank RSVP cards have you seen and have absolutely no idea what to write?  I love this option:

Or this one:

Why not skip the traditional Engagement Photo on the Gift/Guest Book Table and get something like this?

These could also serve as Save the Dates (made smaller obviously) or a great gift to give a couple after their big day!


And we all know hiring a photographer is a must - but why not capture your guests personalities with a super fun Photo-Booth!  These pics are so much better than cheesy group shots at the dinner table...

Don't forget to add a bag of props and signage to really encourage extra fun!

Photobooth pics can also be used as a part of your guest book instead of everyone just scribbling their name in a book....are you really going to read a list of signed names for years to come?  I highly doubt it - so why not have the photobooth print out the pics immediately and have your guests write their well wishes next to their funny pics!



And who said anything about your table numbers being numbers?  Why not black and white pics of past Hollywood Actors to give your wedding a very Hollywood/Glam Vibe?

The above pic actually came from one of the weddings at my place of work:-)


And I'm sorry, but the same tired black suits for the guys are so over-rated...why not try a khaki or gray suit?

And last but not least, give your guests favors they will actually USE:

The orange 'koozies' above read: To have and to hold and to keep your drink cold'...how funny and true at the same time:-)

What other different Wedding Ideas have you seen?

I've literally had no time to do anything. We still don't have colors. lol. anyway, so glad I found your blog. definitely following. If you get a sec I'd love to hear what you think of my fashion blog. It's all about the adventures of a southern girl turned LA local. xo
