A Blast of Fun and Fancy Decorations for a Unique Dream Wedding


It is rare to see fun wedding decorations. There seems to be an unspoken rule about staying monotonous and safe when it comes to decorating a wedding ceremony. While there are certain rules in churches that should be respected, the reception doesn’t have to be all white and flowery. If you want something new and fun for your reception, here are some suggestions that may spark your creativity.

  • Play with colors – Stay away from the usual white motifs. White is technically not even a color to begin with so why bother using it? You can use all colors in the spectrum. There are so many colorful flowers and cloths available online and they don’t really have to be very expensive. The good news about this is that if you are free to use any color you will have more options. You can coordinate with your wedding planner regarding this. They are trained to know which colors match with one another and which ones should not be placed on the same room. If you do not have a wedding coordinator, there are always sites online that will teach you how to mix and match colors. If in doubt, just Google it and you will be fine.
  • Think of a theme – It would be fun if you could ask your guests to dress up like fairies while you and your partner will be the prince and princess in a fairytale. If you are not this crazy or your guests don’t feel like wearing wings or carrying wands, then you can come up with something more possible. Dressing up as Princess Leia and Han Solo during your reception could be fun while your guests dress up as aliens from different planets. The point of this suggestion is that you can play with a theme that would match you and your partner’s personalities.
  • Wedding decorations on catalogues can be helpful too – There are suggestions on catalogues that could appeal to you. Remember to put your own flare to it. Own your wedding by putting something on the mix that would symbolize or represent you and your partner. What you see on catalogues or on online wedding magazines should serve only as suggestions.

If you are not very creative or you doubt your taste, you can always ask professionals or friends who have better taste than you. Understand that there is a reason why wedding decorations belong to a different department as birthday or Halloween decorations. As long as you put this in mind, you will be fine.

Wedding Planning Guide 101


Congratulations! You are engaged to be married. After the excitement and the high of being engaged, you are now in front of your computer wondering what to do next. This wedding planning guide will give you the basics but as for the rest, you will have to leave it to common sense.

  • Where to begin – This step, you are doing now. Searching for a wedding planning guide online will help you know where to start. You should also know that there are many tools online such as wedding budget calculators and wedding journals that can help you along the way.
  • Budget – You will need to talk to your partner about this. By knowing your budget, you can narrow down the type of wedding you will have, how many people to invite, and how much to spend on foods, clothes, and decorations.
  • Take out your pen and paper and start listing – Begin by having separate lists of things you need to buy, people to inform or invite, things needed for the ceremony, things needed for the entourage, things needed for the reception, etc. The grander the wedding, the more people you will need to help you out. A wedding planner may come in handy if your budget can manage one. If not, then you will have to rely on articles such as this one for advice.
  • Gradually inform the people you will be inviting – This is the tricky part. Most couples may forget people and it may result to feelings being hurt or grudges. The best way to avoid this is to sit down and check your family tree then your facebook profile for your list of friends. Be warned though, there should be at least two of your friends who do not use social networking sites.
  • Assign a trusted friend or family member to work on some of the things you need – You can ask your sister, for instance, to check on the wedding dresses. You can ask your brother to drive you from one place to another. If you’re an only child, then your friends will definitely come in handy. You can ask them to pick up the flowers or the dresses.
  • Wedding Vows, among other things – This refers to the things that will be needed during the ceremony. This includes the bouquet, the ring, and most importantly, your wedding vow. While it won’t be so difficult to make something up during the ceremony, it will still help if you at least have an outline of the things you have to say.
  • Check on another wedding planning guide online in case something is left out here.
