Ceremony Tip

If you are having an outdoor ceremony, check for possible air traffic. Helicopters and low flying planes can be a drag during your vows.

It has lots of our latest and greatest weddings (well, they are ALL great!) Please take a minute and watch!

Rock Candy Topiaries
  • by Melissa Brannon

We created these incredible rock candy topiaries for a very fun girl named Joely. They were a great centerpiece addition to her Dylan’s Candy Bar Themed Bat Mitzvah. Still one of my favorite parties!

Ceremony tip

Be sure to speak loud and clear at your ceremony. Your guests have traveled for that special moment and not being able to hear anything makes them feel uninvolved.

I love the bright colors and patterns used for this Mexican inspired wedding. It was refreshing to see the use of bold patterns & colors. Also the cookies used for the favors were an incredible, artistic touch that was outside of the box!

Vintage Book Arch
  • by Melissa Brannon

I think this is a great arch to create & use for a couple of bookworms! You could use your favorite titles and it makes for a great photo at your ceremony.

Ceremony Participants

If you have readers for your service, share their readings with them early, bring print out copies in a large font to your rehearsal.

This Sunday Crossword Puzzle is a great addition to your post nuptial brunch. Set at each place setting it gives your guests something fun & interesting to do while they enjoy a relaxing Sunday afternoon!


Tea Towel Invites
  • by Melissa Brannon

These tea towel invites are a really cool & unique alternative for Save the Date & Wedding Invitations. They offer pre-made designs you can choose from or bespoke design service. They are just as affordable as paper and they can be kept and used forever making them not only an unusual outside of the box invite but a great green option!!

Supplies for “The Day”

Put together an “emergency kit” for the day: breath freshener, white chalk for spills on your dress, small sewing kit, safety pins, pain reliever, tampons.
