Our Wedding Picks of the Day

I’m always on the hunt for new ways to add a special touch to the special day. Some of my wedding picks turn into major trends down the road (for example mason jars, although adorable, have been used a little too much in the last couple years in my opinion). Other great ideas never quite catch on, even if they are stylish and unique.

Wedding Picks of the DayHere are a few special touches that pleasantly surprised me today…

Cotton Bouquet

This bouquet looks lighter than air. We’ve seen a lot of unique bouquet ideas this season (paper flowers, brooches, etc). The cotton is my favorite version by far. It would look like the bride is carrying a cloud!

Typewriter guest book

Not only would this antique typewriter be a lovely decoration for a vintage-chic wedding, but think how special it would be for your guests to type out their well-wishes on its keys. The finished pages could be bound to make a great keepsake.

Lavender toss

Instead of confetti or rice, consider giving your guests lavender to toss at the newlyweds as they exit the ceremony. It’s better for the environment and the birds, and it will leave the air with a wonderful scent.

Couple stamp

This might be my favorite idea of the day. A personalized stamp of the couple’s faces is just too sweet for words. It would be such a cute little additional on invitations or thank-you cards.

Flower bar

This bride created a special flower bar for her bridesmaids to choose from. They were able to create their own bouquets, arrangements, and headpieces. I’m a big fan of the bride giving her bridesmaids a big of freedom and creative control over their overall looks. That’s why I think this idea would be not only a lot of fun, but also a great way for the bridesmaids to show their individuality.
