Creative Wedding Décor Ideas

The Food Pyramid:

Buy some fruits and vegetables that reflect your chosen color scheme and fill them in cylindrical glass vases. The use of lemons, oranges and lime has become mundane, so try a more unique and contemporary look with coconuts and mangoes, or match it with the season with textured and earthy vegetables such as acorn squash, husked corn or artichokes.

Lighten Up:

To add elegance and lighting to your tabletops, float some candles in shallow bowls or arrange the candles on a mosaic of tiles or mirrors and surround them with flower petals or seashells. Additionally, you may place red hot candies or coffee beans at the bottom of a bowl or vase to hold the candles steadily and bring out an aromatic effect.

Wedding Ceremony Ideas

Wedding Ceremony Location:

Ceremony Music (Walking down the aisle)

If “Here Comes the Bride” does not work for you, then do not be afraid to choose a song that suits your personality or style. A rendition of a song from your favorite band may be just what you are looking for.

Non-traditional Instruments

For those who prefer live music over deejays, then it would be best if you tie your music selection to the location or theme of your event. For example, an event at the beachside would naturally go hand in hand with the sound of steel drums or traditional dancers.

Finally, you may also consider having both a band and a deejay so that all genres of music are represented during the event and all guests can listen to something they enjoy. Also, hire a professional photographer to follow you throughout the whole day and capture all the candid moments that you would want to remember for the rest of your life.
