10 Something Old Ideas for your Wedding

Photo via Pinterest

Something old is symbolic continuity of the bride's family. It is meant to represent the bride's past as she embarks on her new future. The item can come from the parents or grandparents from either the bride or the groom's side. Other family members and friends might have an something old item for the bride as well. If the old item is also borrowed for the occasion, it can serve a dual purpose as her something old and borrowed.

Here's a different idea for escort cards - using drinks as escort cards or drinking glasses to display them. These escort drinks would be so much fun.

Long Tables at Wedding Receptions

Long tables at wedding receptions are making a comeback at weddings and is a trend I'm starting to love. Long tables are great and they provide a dramatic effect yet give you the clean and elegant look your after. You can still decorate it with colorful elements  including centerpieces, individual place settings and soft lighting. Long tables give you the option of decorating the table differently from round tables because you can have more than one centerpiece. You can have centerpieces adorn the table in various types, sizes and height.

Decorating your Wedding Aisle

Add some personality to your ceremony and give the wedding aisle a unique look. Most brides don't think of wedding aisle decorations until relatively late in the planning period, but doesn't mean they should be forgotten. Decorative aisle elements add an ethereal quality to a traditional wedding or a vibrant punch of color to a festive celebration. As you walk down the aisle, see your family, friends, and guests smiling back at you flanked by wreaths, flowers or glowing candles. Make your wedding walk much more memorable with well-thought wedding aisle decorations.

It will definitely have your guests talking about the cake long after your wedding. The wedding cake can be associated with a theme, food, or the couple's personality.

Designer Wedding Dresses under $600

WTOO Wedding Dress "Poppy" - $596.00

Choosing the wedding dress is a huge part of the wedding planning process! After all, every bride wants to look amazing in the dress of their dreams, but not everyone wants to spend an outrageous amount. In 2012, the average cost of the wedding dress is between $900 and $1280. But as I was looking around for a wedding dress, I found out that there are many ways to create and find the gown of your dreams. I have found some beautiful options that are big on style and yet are all under $600. (Yes, less than the average cost of a wedding dress!)

Bridal Jackets, Wraps, Capes and Shrugs

I love bridal shrugs. Jacket, bolero, shrug, wrap - all are gorgeous accent pieces that serves so many purposes. For brides getting married in the fall or winter, a soft (faux) fur jacket can keep you warm all day. In summer, a delicate beaded shrug can cover bare arms during the church ceremony. Anytime of the year, a sparkling bolero can add that personal flair to any wedding dress.

Colored Wedding Dresses

Today, we are in the era of colored wedding dresses. Different shades of white are still the most popular bridal choice, but now some brides are bold and opt for some color in their wedding dress. Just keep in mind a wedding dress should fit the body style, build, skin tone while matching any color themes for the wedding itself, but most importantly, a wedding dress should match the personality of the bride too.
