Product Spotlight: Tailored Table Numbers

There are wedding ‘nice to haves’ and then there are wedding ‘must haves’. And it’s the couples that pay close attention to ensure every single ‘must have’ is personalized to their specific wedding day design that create weddings that wow. Take something as simple as table numbers for example. Every single wedding needs them and while most venues provide a standard in-house set, a swap for a custom option results in a finishing touch that will not go unnoticed. To get your upgrading underway, we’re sharing a few creative ways to mark your tables, with options that span the entire budget spectrum.

Wedding Planning Tips: Pop Up Photo Booth How-To

photo booth how to

There’s one thing that you definitely don’t want to forget to do on your wedding day, and that’s to have fun! And let’s face it, with the stress of all the planning and the intensity of the emotion that goes into the big day, it’s easy to forget that a wedding day is first and foremost a major celebration. So we thought we’d remind you of all the fun there is to be had by breaking down the how-to of one of our favorite wedding pastimes, the pop up photo booth. And with just three easy steps to get the look, stress won’t be a factor. Time for a good giggle!

Step 1: The Backdrop

The fundamental basis behind any pop up booth is obviously the background setting. Set the stage right by considering both a personalized backdrop option as well as the overall surrounding area. Having both fit to theme will help set the mood for your guests and guarantees the best final images.

Step 2: Provide Props

Encourage the good times with plenty of props for your guests to play around with. Get creative with what you incorporate and make your props fit to theme. Remember to include things for both male and female guests, young and old alike.

Step 3: Capture the Moments

No pros required! A pop up photo booth is not for your photographer to man. His or her time is better spent capturing other parts of your day. Besides, you’re guaranteed to get more candid footage if you allow your guests to capture the moments themselves. Just set up a bunch of disposable cameras and let the clicking begin!

Product Showcase: A Twist on a Wedding Classic

guest book alternatives - pair canister

If you’re like me then hearing that a new design twist has been applied to a wedding staple is always reason to perk up and pay attention. Tradition is a lovely thing but the last thing anyone wants, especially for their wedding, is a repeat of what someone else had. As far as I’m concerned, there’s room for personality and customization in every detail of a couple’s wedding day. It’s pretty much a given that your decor, florals, stationery and even your favors will be tailored to your personal taste and style. But why stop there?! I say take your event to the next level and personalize every accessory making an appearance at your wedding.

To get your creative juices flowing, in today’s product showcase I’m saying farewell to the traditional concept of a guest book and saying hello to the ultra personalized alternative, the Wedding Wishing Well. Keeping with the same meaningful keepsake concept that a traditional book gives you, with a Wishing Well you not only get a unique design but it also comes with the added bonus of playing double duty as a great decorative piece for your home after your big day. It’s a win win situation really! For some visual reference (and eye candy), here are my top Wishing Well picks, all Weddingstar exclusives.

For the Love of Travel – The Mini Suitcase

Ideal for the Wanderlust obsessed, or for the vintage lover, the appeal of this guest book alternative  is all in its authentic and pretty details. Faux leather bound edges, a vintage liner and a luggage tag that can be personalized with your initials, come together as the perfect defining accents for this piece. The coordinating novel paper airplane stationery offers up a sweet finishing touch. And even if you favor a traditional guest book concept, the suitcase can be used a pretty little decorative accent for any travel inspired wedding theme.

A Touch of Country – The Country Charm Wooden Wish Box

Let’s call this one rustic country gone modern! Country in its concept and modern in its design, this charming box comes complete with unique features including a white wash finish, metal mesh interior, a sweet little love note and a glass front that can be personalized. Whether used with the coordinating miniature scroll stationery or your own personal custom cards, this option is certain to find a permanent spot in your home after your wedding day. Keep complete with the wishes and display as a decorative accent, or repurpose for something new, like a kitchen accent that holds recipes.

For the Modern Bride – Cubist Laser Cut Wooden Box

If you consider yourself to be a modern bride, an eco-chic bride, or simply one that’s looking to incorporate unique intricate details into her wedding accessories, this one’s for you. With its key feature a sliding front panel in a distinct laser cut design, there’s no getting more detailed than this! Once closed the discrete look lends itself perfectly to act as home decor. To personalize the piece add your initials and a meaningful message, and complete the ‘day of’ look with the coordinating laser embossed stationery.
