Calligraphy may be used for table numbers, cards or signage. It is elegant and adds style. Take a class or buy a book on calligraphy.
Themes are an unusual way to brighten things up. You may choose a movie or book as inspiration. For example, bride and groom as Han Solo and Princess Leia from Star Wars or Walt Disney inspired Prince Charming and Cinderella.
Romance and Lighting
There are many different types of low cost candles that can be bought at the craft store. Candles may be decorated or scented and set on tables. Low lighting can make any reception romantic or mysterious.
If your wedding is outdoors white fabric may be hung on trees. Indoors they may be hung from the ceiling or wrapped around poles. Fabric may even be wrapped around or hung on chairs. This makes for a light and airy or indulgent atmosphere.
Folding pretty paper origami could make a wedding masterpiece. You can fold origami balls and hang them on strings from the ceiling.
Also, assemble small origami packages with treats or gifts inside as a delightful surprise for guests. Cranes are a common but still well-liked idea. Place cranes on tables or hang them. There is plenty that can be done with origami. You can place the finished pieces on top of your beautiful wedding tablecloths.
Stand Out Cocktails
Set cocktails colored or any shape of glassware you like on a unique tray on top of an eye-popping block table. You can arrange multi-colored drinks on a tray of one color. Maybe jazz it up by serving guests a light drink they’ve never tasted before.
Order personalized items or add the bride and groom’s names to just about any favor or treat. Paint names artistically on handmade cards or etch them in icing on small cakes to serve to guests. Everyone can look back and remember your union better every time they take out the special gift that was given to them with names on them.
For the Artist
