John Wooden said: “little things make big things happen,” and what’s bigger than a wedding in anyone’s life. Between venue visits, dress fittings, cake tastings and all the joys of wedding planning, the little details often get overlooked. So today, we sum up some of the most eye-catching and distinguishing little details that your guests will surely admire and remember.
Directional or Information Signs
First impressions often make for lasting impressions, and some creative signs can help you make a statement at the first chance. Signs with directions towards the ceremony or reception sites, where to sit or when to do something (dinner or reception schedule, etc.) help immensely and make sure your guests don’t get lost along the way.
Another tip to impress your guests? Escort cards! They are practical, pretty and one of the most creative details for the day. Simple or sophisticated, display them in a creative, personalized way to make your guests feel more welcome.
The more you involve your guests in wedding proceedings, the more they’ll enjoy your wedding. Advice cards are a charming, fun activity for your guests and another great wedding detail.
Creative Guest Favors
We know that wedding planning is laborious work but spending some time and creativity in favor of your guests goes a long way. Consider out-of-the-box or especially considerate gift ideas for your guests. Bonus points for a creative, fun way to display them.
Stylized Cake Table
If your cake demands a separate, special spot, add a few supplemental items to reduce its loneliness. Mr. & Mrs. signage, candles, and small flower arrangements work great here.
Ceremony arch and reception spaces tend to steal the focus from subtle décor areas like aisles, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. Add greenery, lanterns or even potted plants along your aisles and see the refreshing difference they can make.
With guest books the possibilities are endless. Think on your personality as a couple and explore the countless options to document your guest's presence on the big day. You might even end up with great décor details too!
Honor your departed loved ones in a sentimental way with an in-memoriam display. It’s a nice way to include everyone you love as you as you start this new phase of your life.
Stylish menu cards look great tucked into place settings and photograph beautifully on reception tables.
Make everyone ‘woooo’ as you ride off with your husband in a vintage car or sports car, horse-drawn chariot or a quirky set of wheels. Definitely, a fun moment to capture for photographs!
Kids are great when they are having fun. So if they are in attendance, arrange some engaging and fun activities for them. We love the idea of a coloring station for them!
No sweetheart table is complete without a little extra love. Signage hung over the backs of chairs, paired with ribbons, greenery or flowers, is a great option.
Lights, camera, action!
Whether with house light, candles or string lights, you should brighten your venue space up, whatever the time of the festivities. Plan accordingly and research available accommodations. Lighting is an important detail for any event!
