Today invitations have gone beyond the basic card. Sending out extravagant invitations is a great way to give your guests a preview of what kind of event you are throwing. Also, taking the time to make unique invitations makes your guests feel special right from the start.
I’ve seen beautiful origami shaped invitations, musical invitations and pop-up cards that are fun and interactive. Some other unique invitation ideas that I love are ticket stubs for “save the date” invitations, plane tickets for destination weddings, foam flip flops for pool parties, giant quarters for charity events, and personal cupcakes for birthday parties. You can even get creative and design your own candy wrapper with the party information. How sweet!
Wine glasses aren’t just for sipping your favorite wine. The new trend is using wine glasses for decoration in your home and for events. Whether you need extra decorations for the holidays or a unique centerpiece, wine glasses are an easy and affordable option. I love this idea, because unless you are throwing a party, wine glasses just take up cabinet space.There are several different ways you can use and reuse wine glasses to brighten up any area for any occasion. For instance, place white tea lights inside wine glasses that are different shapes, or add colored tea lights to complement your color scheme. Another option is to flip the glasses upside down and place flowers or glass beads inside, and a candle on top of the base. You even can create a unique candy table by filling wine glasses, cups, and bowls with your favorite candies. Wine glasses signify elegance, so why not decorate with them?

What is the difference between a place card and an escort card? Well, the place card is set at the table where the guest has been assigned to sit. The escort card has a little bit of a different job. Escort cards let the guest know which table to sit at. You may be asking yourself, “Why are they important?” Well…escort cards help guests avoid confusion about where they’re sitting. Escort cards also inform guests whom they will sit with. Many times tables are assigned a number and that will be on each guest’s escort card as well. Often times something other then a table number is used such as a name or idea that corresponds to the actual theme of the wedding. For example, if the theme of the wedding is “7 Wonders of the World,” each table name could be one of the “7 Wonders.” Or maybe it’s a wedding that is inspired by the beach; each table could have a name of a special beach the couple has visited together. Escort cards are something that you can have fun with and can be a great touch to your wedding. Are you still questioning the importance of escort cards?
Here are some top reasons to use escort cards:
1. Caterers normally like to know the breakdown of food at each table if you gave the guest a meal preference in the RSVP.
2. If you pair people with common interest at the same table it will keep the awkward conversations about weather to a minimum.
3. Guests will feel more at ease and it will make them more comfortable knowing they do not have to worry about where they will sit.
4. All your guests will love the escort card and often take it home as a memento of your wedding.
5. It is also a wonderful way to blend the two families together.
Photos are the best way to keep a memory alive. Photo booths have been becoming the latest and greatest trends that we keep seeing.
