Sasee Brides 2016

I Do—want a fun wedding!

Sasee found some unique and clever ideas to make your wedding stand out from the rest!

The Dress
A hot new trend is to dip-dye the bottom of your dress to match your wedding colors. Not only does this solve the problem of how dirty that dress may get brushing the floor or ground for hours, it sets you apart from the rest! There are plenty of DIY tutorials online or you can order one done for you!

The Invitation
Make sure the dance floor is packed by asking invitees to jot down three favorite songs on the RSVP card; give your DJ the playlist.

The Welcome
Your guests will never forget your wedding with one-of-a-kind welcome boxes. Much more fun than a bag, they are easier to fill, arrange and deliver. Fill them with flowers, wine, snacks, a personal note and wedding information – or get creative and make it your own!

The Ceremony
Who says flower girls have to be children? Ask your grandmothers to stand in – it’s great way to make them a special part of your day.

The Reception
Place a blank card and pen at each place setting, and ask guests to write a favorite memory of you and/or the groom. Later, bind the notes into a scrapbook.

Serve your food family style! This great way to serve is coming back because it encourages conversation plus comes with a budget-friendly price tag.

The Seating
Try using King’s Tables rather than traditional rounds. And, to decorate, forget using just one centerpiece. Multiple floral designs per table are on trend – especially given the increased popularity of the extra-long King’s tables. The trend away from round tables means re-configuring not only the shape of the centerpieces, but also the spacing and quantity on the long tables.

The Bouquet Toss
If there are only a few single women at your wedding, try this new tradition. Early in the evening, give your flowers to the couple married the longest, and ask them to share a few words of wisdom with the crowd.

The Exit
For a unique way to end your wedding and keep the grounds clean, have guests ring a table of vintage bells you’ve set up. Or, offer guests a color flag to wave. Or, for an evening wedding, use sparklers!

Floral Inspiration

Sasee Brides, here is a unique take on wedding florals – no florals at all! Instead, use simple arrangements of leaves, branches or palms – lots of greenery with minimalist vibes. For a more dramatic effect, consider incorporating a canopy of greenery that hangs high above guests’ heads.
