Ideas We Love
Floral wedding dresses, illustrated invitations, and more.
Going in circles Arrange for your chairs to be put in circles for your ceremony instead of regular rows, if your venue allows. This way, everyone will get a clear view of what's going on, and no one's going to feel left out.

Floral-patterned dresses that lend romance and are spot on for garden or outdoor celebrations. Gown: Romona Keveza Spring 2016 You're on candid canvas Have an artist paint or sketch your ceremony as it's going on. The takeaway: a beautiful souvenir that immortalises the most important moment of yours and your husband's lives.

At the end of the reception, have a quiz, and see who knows you best by the end of the afternoon or evening, and award the individual or table with a small prize.

Unlike the dessert table, where a variety of sweets are laid out for guests to take, this one simply features just one (usually your favourite) item. For instance, opt for an oreo bar with milk shots, or a smores bar for guests to take either after the ceremony, or before the reception.

After the wedding, put it all together to see what each one has to say to you and yours.

It's utterly charming, and fits with almost any theme - from vintage weddings to sophisticated celebrations. Photo: @100_layercake
