Recently, as I was perusing the internet for wedding ideas I came across this gem of an idea. It is on the weddingchannel.com’s website. Instead of a traditional cake stand the bride decided to take on a little DIY and add a little something extra. Click on the link below to see the great pics. She took a (wide and short) round vase and filled it with hydrangeas and then placed a square piece of (flat) glass on the top. As a finishing touch she put a few more hydrangeas on the upside of the flat piece of glass. Voila! Most of her supplies came from Home Depot and/or Lowe’s. If you’re interested, check out the original posting for full step-by-step details on how to do this. www.mydiyweddingday.com/2009/10/howto-diy-cakestand.html
Recently I saw this video on youtube. It is wonderful, it is by far the most creative, engaging and fun wedding processional I have ever seen. While watching it I laughed until I cried.

Take 5 minutes and watch this wedding entrance clip, it will leave a smile on your face. Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMIcCY1mB3E
These submerged Calla lillies are ideal centerpieces. The tall, long flowers provide height for the centerpieces, which is needed for large round tables. Having high centerpieces draws the eyes up, and creates depth for the simple design. In addition to their beauty using a single flower (or three in this case) per table allows you to really trim down your costs. Floral centerpieces can get pretty pricey, so this is a nice alternative for brides that want a floral feel without a hefty pricetag. The floating candles at the top are also a nice touch. The candle light will both provide a contrast to the water and give your reception space a beautiful romantic glow (not to mention they are low cost, too!).
After viewing thousands of wedding invitations, designs and monograms it is always refreshing in to see something customized and different. Recently in a wedding magazine I read there was a blurb on Ambigrams, these Angels & Demons-esque designs are really engaging and unique.
An ambigram combines word-art and optical illusions ~ a word is drawn so that it will appear the exact same when flipped up-side down. This creates a beautifully symmetrical piece of artwork is sure to catch your guests’ eye and serve as a great conversation piece.
With a two word ambigram, the first word rotates to create the second word. These are a wonderful way to pair the names of a couple, a first and last name, a name with an adjective, or any two words. You can display one word at a time, or, when the words are placed together, the whole image appears the same when rotate. There are several websites that offer this service, just Google: Ambigram and wedding I you will find plenty of options.

At one of my recent wedding the florist dyed the orchids a deep indigo color. It gave the flowers a really exotic look, they almost appeared to glow. The dying technique used was to put the dye into water and allow the stems to drink up the color. The effect caused was a very natural look of color variation, the center of the flower was a light blue and then gradually increased to a deep purple at the edges of the petals. The picture attached doesn’t really do it justice. For any bride looking for a unique and eye catching effect this is a great idea to consider.
