Happy New Year! So, he popped the question on New Year's Eve and you are beginning the daunting task of finding all the right components of a 2008 wedding- with your own personal flair! Here are a few ideas for some unique and interesting pieces of a big puzzle! First, with the new "green" wedding, use things natural for your escort card table- this one is using grass to hold the cards, but you can also check out Pottery Barn for chalkboard pots to use for placecards or table numbers- incorporate your favors filling them with herbs or little flowers. Another big question that brides often ask about is what to do about the guestbook. This is a great idea- a beautiful charger with glass pebbles and notecards for your guests to write words of inspiration . Other ideas are polaroids of the guests in a book with a note from each. A coffee table book from your reception venue, such as the book of art from Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, with your guests wishes for you in the pages. There are so many wonderful things to make your wedding unique and fun and I love finding them for you! Stay tuned for more ideas in the coming weeks- or write me for specific ideas or help with your big day! And remember- the best investment for your wedding is a planner to take the pressure off of you and your mom!!! Believe it! Congratulations to all of the new 2008 brides and good luck with your planning!!
