1. Give Yourself Plenty Time

Give yourself plenty of time to get it right. You don’t want to rush and make your invitations – it will show in the end product. And the more that you experiment with different layouts, text and colors the more ideas you will get which will only improve the look of the finished invitation.

2. Use Good Quality Printer Supplies

For the best results when using your printer use quality inks or toner for your invitations and set the printer to the highest print quality before printing, you will use a little more ink/toner but the results will be worth it.

3. Experiment with Different Paper Types

Purchase a small quantity of different paper types and experiment by printing out sample invitations to see which papers gives the best results. Once you are happy with a particular paper type then purchase enough to complete your wedding invitations.

4. Select a Template Style That Matches Your Wedding Theme

To give your guests a glimpse of your wedding style, select an invitation that matches your wedding theme. For example a black and white invitation with a simple clean uncluttered look would be ideal for a formal wedding style.

5. Proof Read Invitation Wording

You must proof read your invitations several times and to be doubly sure have someone else proof read too, then make the necessary corrections before printing. What I would suggest is that you not print out your invitations for a few days after proof reading. When you are ready to print proof read again, you may be surprised at what you have missed the first time around.

Well after all the time and effort that you have put into creating your invitations you don’t want to have to throw away a hundred invitations (it will only cost you money) because of an error that you missed.

Create a Unique Wedding Bouquet

Tags

Bridal bouquets from the florist are often too expensive. Sometimes the florist makes an error in the type of flower, or the blooms have not yet opened or are not fresh. Thus, it is often best to create your own bridal bouquet. The amount of designs and flowers to be used is limitless.

Unique Wedding Bouquet
1
Decide upon the design and color scheme for the bouquet. Then find a garden store, grocery store or florist that sells fresh cut flowers at reasonable prices. Or browse your backyard garden to find flowers to cut to use in a bouquet. Choose flowers that are fresh, fully open and are known to hold their freshness for at least 24 hours.
2

Gather together all needed tools such as gardening gloves, gardening clipper tool, floral wire, ribbon, and fresh flowers. Keep the cut flowers in water until you put them in the bouquet.

3

Decide how to combine flowers to made a lovely bouquet. For example, for a wedding with a purple theme you could use cut lilacs in the bouquet alone or combined with white or pink tulips. For a wedding with a white theme you could create a bouquet of white roses or white daisies. A wedding with a pink theme could use a bouquet with peonies, roses, tulips, pink daisies, lilies or a combination of different pink flowers.
4

Sketch a drawing of the shape of the bouquet you will create once you have picked the flowers. A classic bouquet is round, other designs have elements that dangle from the main bouquet and some designs consist of one single dramatic flower stem. Then gather the flowers and cut the stems to the desired length. Most bouquets have a stem length of at least 6 inches to allow you to grasp the bouquet firmly.
5

Wire bunches of flowers together with the floral wire. Ensure that all stems are attached firmly with the wire. Add more stems gradually to achieve the desired design of the wedding bouquet. When all flowers are wired together check the stem of the bouquet to ensure that no ragged stems or sharp wires are protruding. Then wrap the stem tightly with decorative ribbon in the color of your choice. Popular colors for ribbon include white, ivory, pink, gold, silver or colors to match the theme of the wedding. Some prefer to use green ribbon to replicate the color of the flower stems. Secure the ribbon with a hat pin through the ribbon and the stems of the flowers.

Planning a Unique Wedding

The best wedding planning advice I ever received was, “Your wedding doesn’t have to be what the American culture tells you it should be. You don’t have to have the same number of bridesmaids and grooms men and your dessert doesn’t have to be cake if you don’t like cake.”  So simple.  So true.  Yet, it was exactly what I needed to hear.

A mountain of stress collapsed within me.  I realized my fiancé and I’s wedding day had become more about meeting expectations of magazine and movies rather than celebrating new life together.  I’m convinced I’m not the only victim.

Here are some tips and inspiration for how to take your own unique spin on traditionally repeated wedding details:

Wedding Bands:  Wedding bands are a matchless and intimate symbol of your commitment to one another.  So, when you see your same engagement ring or wedding band on the hand of your best friend’s cousin…your heart drops a little bit.  When looking for your rings, find a small business jeweler specializing in designer engagement rings.  There you will find unique pieces that will set you apart.  Also, consider making your ring carry even more value by placing an heirloom stone into a new setting that you love.  Grandma’s diamond will become your own in a designer setting like Tacori or Verragio.

Bridal Party: Who says things have to be even?  If you have seven close girlfriends you want as your bridesmaids and he only has four guys picked for his groomsmen, you’re not breaking any laws.  In fact, if your future husband wants his sisters to stand on his side of the altar and you want your brother to stand on your side, go for it.  It would probably mean a lot to your siblings to be able to stand next to you on one of the biggest days of your life.
