Your wedding is a special day, a day you want to remember fondly for years to come. Part of making your wedding day special is adding touches that make it a unique celebration. Consider these tips for making your wedding day a fun and memorable experience.
Ditch the Traditional Cake Topper
While the traditional bride and groom cake topper is great for some couples, other couples find it does not fit their style. For example, if you are a couple combining families, you might want to consider a cake topper that includes the whole family including the children. You could even get one that includes your family dog. These cake toppers show wedding guests that you realize your wedding represents more than just a union between you and your future spouse.
If you want to demonstrate that your wedding is really a dream-come-true, you may want to consider a fairy tale wedding cake topper. You can also create your cake topper based upon the wedding theme. For example, if you are having a beach wedding, put clean seashells on top of the cake.
Of course, you can have a bride and groom cake topper and still have something unique that represents you as a couple. Is the bride pregnant? Get a pregnant bride cake topper. If you are a sports fan, you can find a variety of cake toppers to represent your love of sports, including some for basketball, baseball, football, or soccer fans. Of course, there are many other options for cute and unique cake toppers may represent you as a couple.
One great thing about having a cake topper that represents you as a couple is that it is something you will likely treasure for years to come. After the wedding, instead of being hidden away in a drawer, thrown away, or passed along to someone else, the topper will be something you will likely want to display in your home.
Use Fake Flowers
Some people choose to use fake flowers in their bouquet and other floral arrangements because someone in the bridal party suffers from allergies. Other people prefer the cost of not having to buy their flowers from a florist, or they simply want to create their own bouquet. If you want artificial flowers that look like real flowers, you can buy them in a variety of retail or craft stores.
Another option some people like is to create origami wedding flowers. Th
is can be time-consuming, especially if you are making them for multiple bouquets and as decorations. If you get a few friends together to make them, the process can go a lot faster. Plus, well-created origami wedding flowers can be beautiful and look real. You are not limited to a specific flower when creating origami flowers for your wedding. A few popular options are lilies, roses, daisies, and tulips. Many other origami flowers can also be created. You can make an assortment of different flowers or stick to one type. You can also create leaves or origami flower stems. Your origami flowers can even be placed in vases and used as a centerpiece.
One great advantage of not using real flowers is that your flowers can continue to look wonderful, even several months or years after the wedding. While you can dry out real flowers to preserve them, they will never look as nice as they looked when they were fresh. Like your unique cake topper, you can display your flowers around your home after the wedding.
