a wedding is a time to remember family past and present... storytelling wedding photography
Are you meeting your laugh quota???
Children are said to laugh an average of 300 times a day compared to an adult laughing only 15-20 times. Laughing is good for you, so I've added a joke to get you started...

I don't know about you but I love anything with a creative flare and a wedding is the perfect excuse for anyone to let their creative side flourish - whether it's in the form of quirky decor, incomparable keepsakes for the guests, or of course (if you are the guest) a unique gift for the happy couple. This week I have searched high and low to bring you a selection of wedding (or party) related ideas that I love.
If you have read any of my previous posts, you will know I am a big lover of vintage, so of course, the ideas I love all have vintage style themes. Regarding table decor, I love seeing quite random, creative items. Here are some that made my final cut -
Tea cups - Where could you possibly go wrong?! You can fill them with just about anything you like - candles, flowers, sweets or of course, actual tea. I love how versatile they are and how such a small feature can add such a stylish edge.
Luggage labels aka place cards (dur). Team them up with sparkles, buttons and feathers and you've got yourselves a fabulous way of letting each guest know where they're sitting/ a unique keepsake for everyone involved! Bonus.
Round balloons - This idea I have personally tried and tested at my 18th birthday party and can assure you they look amazing - if I do say so myself! One on each table is enough to complete that contemporary cool look.
Personalised champagne glasses for the reception - every guest has obviously always dreamed of having their name on a glass! An added bonus is they can be as cheap and cheerful to make as you wish but add a personal touch to the celebrations.
I could go on forever but the last idea I absolutely love and have to share with you is the 'guestbook bottle'. You need: a glass bottle, a cork, paper, ribbon and friends. They need: something nice to say about you. Simple! You now have messages in a bottle! - you could have one huge bottle or one for each table depending on what you'd prefer!
I would love to hear about some of your quirky ideas if you want to comment on the Facebook or Twitter! Happy Friday!
