Fun Finds: Sentimental Wedding Ideas

As if the wedding day isn’t emotional enough, Huffington Post recently published an article featuring “additional sentimental ideas to include on your wedding.”  See my favorite ideas listed below!

 Mother’s Wedding Dress:

Resurrect your mother’s wedding dress! Feature fabric from her wedding dress around the bouquet of your flowers. Other ideas include customizing a necklace, garter, or stitching a piece of her wedding dress inside yours!

Photo Opportunities:

Generally, couples will make a list of photos they would like taken on the day of their wedding.  Here are a few you should add to the professional photographer’s list.

Parents of the Bride & Parents of the Groom:

Print pictures of both sets of parents on their wedding day! Frame the photo and have your wedding photographer take a picture of the  couple holding the photos!  The framed photographs of your parents wedding day can later be used for reception decor on the gift table, escort table, or cake table! Later, the professional photograph can be used as  a gift on your parent’s wedding anniversary!

After you get engaged, write your fiancé a letter expressing your excitement and anticipation to be married then put it in a bottle. On your wedding day have the letter delivered to your fiancé before the ceremony!

I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH! State all the things you love about one another! Have a graphic designer type & frame. The frames can be propped on easels for additional reception décor. Later use the frames as a décor piece in your home!
