Social media, bridal magazines, television shows and Pinterest boards are full of wedding ideas, and there are so many different styles and trends that can make wedding days even more special. If you are looking to add some whimsical touches to your wedding, I suggest the following unique ideas…
How to Add Whimsical Touches to Your Wedding
The Wedding Dress
The dress is one of the biggest components of a wedding. It is one of the first decisions that is made, and it can help set the tone of the day. Go for something that’s a little out there and a little funky – like this striped Hayley Paige gown.
The Bridal Shoot
After the dress is chosen, you can show it off through a playful bridal shoot! Let your personality shine by using props such as books or Wonderland-inspired flowers, and original locations, like your childhood home.
When the big day finally arrives, welcome people to your locale with an interesting entryway. Cute chaise lounges, antique bikes, giant chalkboards and handmade signs are just a few ways to let people know they’ve arrived.
Once guests have entered the venue, you may want them to sign a guest book, and – once again – your quirkiness can shine here. This specific guest book is made up of lots of little books, like a miniature library, and it is from Etsy!
During the ceremony all eyes will be on you, so make sure you are standing under or in front of something interesting, such as this “bookdrop”, which was crafted out of recycled books and which continues this literary and Alice in Wonderland-esque theme.
The reception is sort of the best part of a wedding, since everyone can truly celebrate your love with you. If a five-course meal is not your thing or if you want to offer an activity besides dancing, we suggest games. From cards and dominoes on the tables to horseshoes and corn hole outside, this will give everyone, young and old, something to enjoy during your picture-perfect wedding! <3
