Show me Your Back Side

Long gone are the days where your chairs for the reception or ceremony are just meant to blend in. Since personalization is the key to any unique wedding, check out a few ways you can personalize the back of your chairs. It can be from just the Bride & Groom chairs, only the last row of chairs for the ceremony, for your head table or every single chair!
This simple laurel from Style Me Pretty is elegant and not trendy. Just a classic way to show where the bride and groom are sitting.

For the two love birds!

Tying these ribbons on the chairs is sure to be a tedious job, but it would look fantastic for an outdoor reception. 

These signs have the classic Mr. and Mrs. with the initial of the couples last name but its the florals that gives these chairs the wow factor!

Have the mantra of go big or go home? Then these rosette chair covers would be perfect for your head table.

We love this one! The mason jar of flowers slung to the side along with the couples names written on chalk is adorable. Just tell the groom not to sit all the way back or he'll end up with his name on his tux!

These four Bride & Groom or Mr. & Mrs.  signs say all they need to say and can be made or purchased easily. It is also an easy way to incorporate your wedding colors into the chairs.

Flowers on the back of every chair can be expensive, but these single gerber daisies add so much color to this lake side wedding.

This is a great idea for just the last row of your ceremony chairs. They will be in all of your pictures and can be re-used for the head table chairs.
This side tie with a posy of flowers is perfect to line the aisle. Want to save on cost? Only add them to every third chair!

These pink lucite chivairi chairs strung with orchids is fabulous!

& it says it all!

These are so gorgeous and feminine!

Garter Girls

The tradition of the garter dates back to the 14th century, where people thought having a piece of the Bride's clothing was good luck. The guests would pull and tear at her dress, ripping off pieces of fabric, which did not sit well with the Bride...can you imagine!? For the sake of the dress, the  tradition of the Bride having the groom remove the garter from her leg was started. We've come a long way from the 14th century, but Groomsmen still want to catch the garter.Today garters have become part of the outfit for your Wedding Day. Check out a some fantastic garters that you may not want to give away!

Let them Eat Cake!

We have a bit of sweet tooth today and so we thought we would feature some really fun cakes. The problem is, when cakes look this good it is hard to watch them be cut into hundreds of pieces!

These ombre cakes are so beautiful! It could be done in any color for your wedding.
We love the layers of ruffles at the bottom of the cake.
The lace detail on this cake is feminine & subtle.
This is a modern cake but it still feels whimsical!

A classic monogramed cake with real flowers. Perfect for any wedding, anytime of year.

We would guess this cake would come close to $12 a slice and would be too small for a wedding but,  this rose cake would be perfect for a bridal shower. And, it was just too pretty not to show!

This square cake with fondant rose details is classic but with a quirky twist.
