At first, you may think about what the heck to write. Don’t worry if you haven’t won any literary awards before, because the couple would still appreciate this, especially if the story is about their love life and who can write it better than you, a person who has seen them through the ups and downs.

Engagement Party Decoration Ideas

Fairy Lights

Image source: pinterest.com

Dreamy and romantic without the unnecessary frills, you may find this decoration idea unique and easy especially if you want to hold the party outdoors. This is a simple yet elegant idea that can stand alone even without the help of additional fluffy decorations.

Sweets Table

Image source: tlydesign.com

We want to please our guests to the fullest. This is also a tactical way to distract those sweet-toothed ants from raging over your sweet love bubble in the occasion. Shoo them away from feasting on the sweetness that the two of you are displaying by providing a sweets table.

Garlands

engagement-party-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: etsy.com

Just like fairy lights decoration, this can also stand alone for itself and define the occasion – a mood setter that is elegant yet simple. Also, we need not say more with the notion that this makes things a lot romantic.

Engagement Party Game Ideas

This is basically a contest to make the best diamond engagement ring using a block of ice. Give your guests their blocks of ice and allow them to create a sculpture of the best diamond engagement ring that they can make. The judge will be the hot-seated couple.

This is a simple yet mind-boggling game. You each tell a story about yourselves and then each will also guess whether the story is true or false. The person with the most correct guesses wins.

Engagement Party Theme Ideas

Wine Tasting Engagement Party

Image source: youqueen.com

If you want an exquisite (and a little expensive) type of engagement party, then have this for a try. Your guests can freely choose their wine flavour choice and of course the fun and excitement will also be assured.

Cooking Class

engagement-party-theme-ideas-1

Image source: huffingtonpost.com

Why hire a catering to do the food for you when you can have your guests cook their own food? Of course, it would still be a must that you prepare a snacks or sweet corner for your guests, but having this theme will also give them a more interactive environment. How to do this? You can hire a chef have a cooking lesson (or basically anyone who knows a good meal) and allow your guests to make their own food.

Retro Couple

engagement-party-theme-ideas-2

Image source: bridalguide.com

This may also be termed as “movie-inspired.” Whether you want to Photoshop the couple’s face on the Hollywood Titanic poster or Romeo and Juliet cameo, it’s your choice. The idea here is to make the event look as if their love story is the one that’s now showing.

Engagement Party Ideas on a Budget

Outdoor Engagement Party

Sometimes the best thing to cut a little spending is to draw the occasion closer to nature – literally. Literally. This is the natural way to save yourself from the trouble of decorating and allow nature to do this for you – in the most natural way.

After-Dinner Party

engagement-party-ideas-on-a-budget-1

Image source: designsponge.com

It’s your choice if you want to put the description in the invitation letter advising your guests to take their dinner before heading over to the occasion, but if you want to put it in a more dignified manner, then instruct your guests that this will be an after-dinner party, and that you will be serving snacks and sweets for that matter.

Buy-Your-Own Alcohol

If you will be finding it hard to do away with the alcohol in the occasion (especially if the bachelorette or stag party suddenly follows), then instruct your guests that you will be sponsoring only one bottle of beer for them – if they want extra, then they have to buy from the snack corner. They’ll understand.

Outdoor Engagement Party Ideas

Vintage-Inspired

outdoor-engagement-party-ideas

Image source: pinterest.com

Always, vintage-inspired themes never fade away from the scene when we want something romantic and sweet but without the unnecessary frills. This is a recommend if you want something romantic and sweet – and outdoors.

“Ventura Country”

outdoor-engagement-party-ideas-1

Image source: kbayerphoto.com

Just picture this: a couple of lined-up tables surrounded by fruit trees that infuse the air with citrus-smelling effects that enter your nostrils, making you feel comfortable with a nirvana-effect. This is the idea for an outdoor engagement party. After all, the point is to make your guests feel comfortable.

Beach Engagement Party

This is probably one of the most common if you want an engagement party that’s outdoors. You can do tons of stuff on the beach, not to mention that you can also spend the time watching the sunset for additional romantic effects.

Engagement Party Cake Ideas

L-O-V-E 4-Layer Cake

engagement-party-cake-ideas

Image source: etsy.com

You wouldn’t want something “too much” for your cake. The design for this sweet goody is simple and imposing – obviously, when the guests see the four letters: L-O-V-E, it will be obvious that this is a cake for love.

Love Birds

engagement-party-cake-ideas-1

Image source: flickr.com

A love birds cake for a love birds. The design on this cake is cute and romantic but without the unnecessary details – just an animated frosting that draws two love birds kissing each other’s beaks (although we know that love birds don’t really kiss).

Fairy-Tale Inspired

Not to worry. This will not make your cake look like Sleeping Beauty’s crown. This cake only holds an elegant white touch with a few decorations at the topmost layer that says ‘soon to be married.’

Engagement Party Invitation Ideas

Vintage Chalkboard Heart Theme

engagement-party-invitation-ideas

Image source: favorsandflowers.com

This invitation idea loosens the formality of the event and allows your guests to expect something more casual and engaging. The design involves having a heart-shaped imitation of a blackboard with chalkboard writings of the invitation.

Romantic Lips and Mustache

engagement-party-invitation-ideas

Image source: etsy.com

Easily understandable: your guests won’t find it hard to guess the nature of the event because the minimalist graphic art can speak for itself. Obviously, somebody’s got engaged.

Quirky and Fun: “Eat, Drink and Be Married”

engagement-party-invitation-ideas-1

Image source: etsy.com

A simple inscription that will fill the front of the invitation before they flip on to the next page that gives the details of the occasion – and for that, we only have one word to say: “’Tis.”

26 Stunning Wedding Decoration Ideas For Your Big Day!

After the stag party and the bachelorette party, there is one important preparation to think about: wedding decoration ideas. In order to make the moment perfect, it is impeccable to have the decorations set the mood on the day that will tie the knot between two people. Wedding celebrations are the best excuses to wear our hair down and become as grandeur as we can. After all, the world has seen enough wars and battles. It’s time to celebrate love, and weddings are the best venue for this.

Some of the best wedding decoration ideas, surprisingly, can be as cheap but unique. It is not necessary for a wedding to be expensive. The secret lies in creativity. Most people experience wedding jitters, especially in decorating the event. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Have fun. It’s a wedding, not a pressure cooker.

Wedding Table Decoration Ideas

Crystal Wedding Bubbles (Pink/Blue/Diamond)

wedding-table-decoration-ideas

Image source: cherlaan.com

We love anything the glitters. They add a little specialty and royalty for the event, but they don’t have to be pure diamonds (unless you want to give the royalty of England a run for their money). They can simply be crystal bubbles in any colour depending on the theme of the wedding.

White Scatter Table Pearls

Same point as the idea on crystal wedding bubbles. If you want something that can make the table look like royalty, you can also have something glittery or shiny to scatter on the table such as pearls. Aside from pearls, pink or blue diamond (can be Swarovski or not), depending on the theme. It’s a better decoration idea than scattering glitters on the table. It just isn’t right.

Diamond Napkin Rings

wedding-table-decoration-ideas-3

Image source: weddingdirect.co.nz

This is a creative idea for table decoration. You can mimic the napkin ring according to your engagement ring. Everyone can then have a piece of it.

Linked Hearts Place Card Holder

You can place the names of the guests here, according to their seats at the reception table. The design perfectly fits the event. Aside from this, this card holder will not over-shadow the design on the table especially if you want to put a centrepiece.

Wedding Reception Decoration Ideas

Apothecary Jars

wedding-reception-decoration-ideas

Image source: miteecrafts.com

Who says apothecary jars are only for pickles in the kitchen? They can also be a decorative idea for a wedding. Yes, they can be. If you don’t want the traditional flower centrepiece, then you should try this idea. Fill the jars with bright color combinations of flowers (depending on your theme) and have them as a background display on the food table. It’s a little appetizing to see them behind the food.

Chair Sashes

wedding-reception-decoration-ideas-1

Image source: weddingthingz.com

No, this will not make your wedding look gay (unless it’s a gay wedding). There are ways to design the sash in order to make it look elegant. Having designs on chairs will also lessen the boring look, because chairs are usually given less decorations in receptions.

Crystal Garlands and Curtains

wedding-reception-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: shopwildthings.com

If you’re tired of the usual floral centrepieces and flowers everywhere, then you can have crystal garlands to decorate the reception with. Garlands never fail to make an event look elegant. But be careful not to put too much detail when you use this because this decoration can stand by itself.

Cheap Wedding Decoration Ideas

Fresh Wedding Flower Centrepiece

In this aspect, choose a flower that may define the theme, so as not to make it look boring because fresh flowers are the most common centrepieces. Add a few more touches like seashells alongside the centrepiece and some scattered petals.

Handmade Paper Flowers

Origami: Is it a crane? No. Is it a butterfly? No. Is it a ribbon? No. Ever tried making flowers for the event by paper folding? If you want something cheap yet creative, then you can also use paper flowers. Being that they are handmade, you can personalize and design it according to your taste.

Floating Candles in Brass Bowl with Flower Petals

cheap-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: church4wedding.com

This is a classic wedding decoration idea. And a plus, it is easy to make. It also saves time in doing. Candles plus flower petals floating on water equals romance. This will never be a major fail.

Outdoor Wedding Decoration Ideas

Wedding Marquee Decoration

outdoor-wedding-decoration-ideas

Image source: pinterest.com

Because the theme is “outdoor,” of course you wouldn’t want your guests to suffer too much heat or to get wet in case it rains. Put an all-purpose marquee that will make the event, not only memorable, but well-equipped in any weather. But of course, dress the marquee creatively.

Flower Vessels

outdoor-wedding-decoration-ideas-1

Image source: etsy.com

This decoration idea can make the event look nature-friendly. What’s a better way to spend outdoors than with a bit of nature touch?

Fairy Lights

outdoor-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: modernwedding.com.au

This will especially look good during the evening. Bits and pieces of lights hanging above the celebration makes the event look grand and alive. Instead of putting spot lights for the evening, try bits and pieces of lights that can make the celebration look like a rip-off from the Lord of the Rings.

Indian Wedding Decoration Ideas

Colorful Canopy

Indian weddings are specially adorned with bright colourful shades or purple and fuchsia, making the celebration seem festive and never boring. In contrary to the western pure-white theme, Indian weddings are bound to be colourful. It’s specially a good idea to revamp the colors on the canopy that will enshroud the guests.

Flower Garlands

Again, garlands are a good idea for an Indian wedding. First, garlands can stand alone to decorate the whole event; and second, it’s alright to create flower combos as decorations. Because it is an Indian wedding, there is no such thing as “over-decoration.”

Moonbeam Purple Custom Aisle

indian-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: etsy.com

A unique aspect about Indian weddings is that you get to customize the aisle that the bride will cross. Phases of the moon is a phenomena special to Indians; thus, it can make the celebration more culturally in-tact. Purple, on the other hand, is the colour of royalty. No doubt, this idea can make the wedding memorable.

Vintage Wedding Decoration Ideas

Romantic Wooden Sign Just Married

vintage-wedding-decoration-ideas

Image source: dotcomgiftshop.com

When we say vintage, we mean it. Anything old becomes the trend. This design is simple to do. The older the wooden sign may be, then the better. After all, what’s vintage without a bit of moss and mildew. Wait, forget the mildew.

Three Tier Regency Cake Stand

vintage-wedding-decoration-ideas-1

Image source: emzo.co.uk

If you’ve seen Hollywood films that have settings in the Victorian era, then this is idea is something like that. A vintage theme never fails without the help of ‘the’ cake stand that can make the celebration look like your grandmother’s wedding.

Wedding This Way Hanging Metal Sign

vintage-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: pinterest.com

This is another vintage idea that will definitely be noticeable. The guests will surely look at this sign and of course, it may help in setting the theme.

DIY Wedding Decoration Ideas

Painted Vases

diy-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: stylemepretty.com

It’s best to have this decoration idea in variety of colours, because having them in a monotonous tone will make the design a little boring. This will look especially good on the tables especially if you want to use painted vases with flowers as a centrepiece instead of the traditional crystal clear vase.

Floral Centrepieces (Water with Food Colouring Inside Vases)

diy-wedding-decoration-ideas

Image source: bloompia.com

If you haven’t heard of this decor trick before, then here’s an idiot’s guide for you. If you’re probably wondering on how to make those flowers with colored tips, then this is the simple trick. Simply, put food coloring (of your preference) in the vase filled with water where the flowers will rest. Observe the results after an hour or two.

Origami Wedding Decorations

Now, it’s the time to let out those paper folding ideas. You may also want to buy a special origami paper for this. Your guests will have fun looking at the designs that you’ve made specially for their entertainment.

Beach Wedding Decoration Ideas

Stunning Blue Seashell Bouquet

beach-wedding-decoration-ideas

Image source: pinterest.com

You’re probably wondering – why blue? It’s the colour of the ocean. Besides, blue has a calming effect. Why seashell bouquet? It’s a beach wedding of course. The best way to wear the beach is to decorate using seashells. The guests won’t have to point out the obvious.

Coral Beach Wedding Cake

beach-wedding-decoration-ideas-1

Image source: cakecentral.com

Because we can’t get enough of seashells and corals in a beach wedding, let’s do more of the obvious. The last stop: the wedding cake. But don’t underestimate this obvious cake decoration for a beach wedding. You can find great images of this on a local store and on the internet.

Hand Wired Seashells, Pearl, Starfish with Swarovski Crystals (Hair Decoration)

beach-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: etsy.com

Still not enough seashells – we want to see more and this time, on the heads of the bride’s maids. If this decoration idea is done with the proper arrangement, colour combinations and design variation (seashells, pearl, starfish, crystals), it will come out beautiful. It’s also a good idea to make your bride’s maids look like a part of the decorations. And please, do not use a live starfish for this idea.

Rustic Wedding Decoration Ideas

Pretty Pomes

How do you define pretty pomes? First, if the design is made in perfect pomes; and second, if the pomes is in the right shade. If you have a classic black-and-white theme, then have the pomes in the same colour. If the theme is rustic, then have them in warm colours. Pomes, just like garlands, can also stand alone. So if you don’t have any more idea on how to decorate your rustic wedding theme, pomes is the answer.

Hanging Pinwheels

rustic-wedding-decoration-ideas-1

Image source: thehappyhousie.com

Who would’ve thought that you can use what have learned in your elementary art class to make rustic decorations? Pinwheels are easy to make. Moreover, they can look very decorative for a rustic themed wedding. Especially if the wedding is outdoors, just imagine how pretty this will look when a breeze approaches.

Wheat Centrepiece

rustic-wedding-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: ruby-weddings.co.uk

For a rustic wedding theme, flowers are overrated. Instead of having a flower centrepiece, you can surprise your guests by having a wheat centrepiece. This can especially look good because the colour palettes of wheat are not too over-powering. Imagine a wheat centrepiece on a brightly painted vase: perfect.

25 Brilliant Bridal Shower Ideas That She’ll Definitely Love!

bridal-shower-ideas

image source :http://www.mazelmoments.com/blog/

Bridal shower ideas are all about love and bidding farewell to a person’s single life (awww) before she strides to the red carpet of match-making heaven (again, awww). A few days from now, she’ll be officially hitched. But before those final walks to single-dom, you’ll need to whip something to celebrate the last days of her single status. As her future hubby goes gaga over his own stag party, why not entertain her in her own bachelorette party, which doesn’t always come with a huge cake with a Magic Mike stripper inside. On the other hand, this can come after the bridal shower. Let’s take things in a light and soft manner first before heading on to the wild side of things. Here are a couple of bridal shower ideas to choose from. Magic Mike can wait.

Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

Luggage & Honeymoon Guidebooks

A new married couple may be a little awkward to talk about when and where to spend the honeymoon (including the things you can do to set the honeymoon mood). Of course, they can sort this out on their own. But every rookie needs an idiot’s guide, so here’s one for them.

Breakfast in Bed Tray and Pajamas

bridal-shower-gift-ideas-1

Image source (Pajamas): cpsc.gov (Bed Tray): amazon.com

After their marriage ceremony, expect long hours of frolicking in bed. Surely, they would want to spend a lot of time lounging around and watching television (the bills can come later) together. Something that they can make their lounging about will be most appreciated.

Champagne Glasses

bridal-shower-gift-ideas-2

Image source: amazon.com

This is a traditional romantic gift idea for a newly-wed. It’s inevitable that they might find this useful especially during the honeymoon dinner date.

Bridal Shower Decoration Ideas

Lingerie Bachelorette Party

If you want to adapt something funny and sexy without the frills for her bridal shower (to hell with magic-mike-later scheme), then this is a recommend. All of you girls can wear your favourite lingerie for the party. And yes, you may change before and after the party.

Oversized Long Stem Flower

bridal-shower-decoration-ideas-1

Image source: etsy.com

A flower fit for a queen. Because this is her bridal shower, give her something that will catch the eye – a big red flower with a long stem. This is her symbol of specialty for the party. Add her to the decors.

BRIDE-TO-BE Sash

bridal-shower-decoration-ideas-2

Image source: amazon.com

Still not seeing the future bride? Well, here’s a sash to introduce her. This can go well with the oversized long stem flower.

Bridal Shower Favor Ideas

Personalized Condoms

bridal-shower-favor-ideas

Image source: pixelonomics.com

Don’t panic. After all, it’s a bridal shower. We all want ways to contribute to a pro-choice pregnancy. If it ain’t your time to procreate, use a contraceptive if you can’t control the raging endorphins. So we guess the chocolates have to go then.

Lip Balm

bridal-shower-favor-ideas-1

Image source: musingsofamuse.com

Beauty goodies are the most common favour to be given in bridal showers. If you don’t want something that’s too explicit like personalized condoms, here’s a cute and sweet little lip balm for the girls.

Glass Love Coasters

bridal-shower-favor-ideas-2

Image source: amazon.com

We want anything that can spread the love and that applies even on the food table. This is something that your guests can use even at home and not just for display purposes.

Bridal Shower Game Ideas

Two Truths and a Lie

bridal-shower-games-ideas

Image source: listsbuzz.com

This game is simple: gather the girls and each have to think about two truths and a lie about them. On each turn, everyone has to take the centre seat and allow everyone to guess which of your statements about yourself are lies and true. It’s a race-to-guess game so the first person to speak her guess gets the point. The girl with the most points wins.

Toilet Paper Wedding Dress

Divide the group into pairs. Each pair will pick a “bride” and a designer. In 20 minutes, the designer has to make a stylish wedding dress using the toilet paper. The celebrant of course has to be the judge on the winner.

How Old Was She?

bridal-shower-games-ideas-2

Image source: pinterest.com

Simply, collect the past photos of the celebrant and post them on the wall. Give each guest a piece of paper and allow them to write down their guesses on the celebrant’s age per picture. They can do this while munching on a meal. The winner can be announced at the end of the shower.

Bridal Shower Food Ideas

Egg Salad Crostini

bridal-shower-food-ideas

Image source: leafandgrain.com

The best thing about this food is that it’s not too heavy on the tummy, but just the right punch. It’s not too strong on the flavour either so your guests won’t notice if they’ve already munched on the lot on the table.

Frosted Sandwiches

bridal-shower-food-ideas-1

Image source: myrecipes.com

Again, this food idea is as merciful on the tummy just as the egg salad crostini is. It only has a stronger flavour because it is a sandwich. But if your guests would want some punching flavours that can fuel their energy for the whole bridal shower, then here’s a sandwich for them – and it’s frosted.

Chalk-board Style Glasses

bridal-shower-food-ideas-2

Image source: southernliving.com

No, the flavour is not chalk-board style. It only describes the design for the glass containers. The flavours can vary according to your likes. The idea of chalk-board style glasses is to literally label each drink according to their flavour so that your guests could get interested.

Bridal Shower Theme Ideas

The Yoga Shower

We all want to get her all ready for “the-moves” for the move. It’s time to relax her and stretch her stubborn ligaments and make sure that her stamina lasts for the honeymoon. If she’s also having wedding jitters, then here’s a dose of yoga-shower for her.

The Shower Shower

bridal-shower-themes-1

Image source: karaspartyideas.com

A shower for a shower: ‘tis. Have a beach or pool bridal shower before she hits the wedding carpet. It’s perfect idea if you plan on having the bachelorette party after. After all, what’s a shower without a little water? Girls always have fun when on a swim.

Movie Starlet

bridal-shower-themes-2

Image source: bridalguide.com

This is the perfect excuse to become the goofiest and most stylish Hollywood or local actresses that you’ve dreamed of. The bride-to-be will surely have fun with this as well as the guests. This is the proper time when mimicking Jennifer Aniston’s hairstyle will not make you look like a fanatic.

Bridal Shower Cake Ideas

Wedding Dress Cake

Image source: flickr.com

At least it’s obvious that the occasion is a bridal shower, even the cake is dressed for the event. This cake style is easy to make (if you plan on having it homemade), delicious to look at and decorative for the shower.

Bridal Cake With Rose Petal Frosting

Image source: whippedbakeshop.com

This design is luscious, almost sinful, to look at. At first, you just want to head to the cake and lick the petals away, but you can’t. This is gorgeous to look at and everyone can also have their pictures taken with this artwork before the licking demoralizes the designer.

Bridezilla Mini-Cake and Cupcakes

bridal-shower-cake-ideas-1

Image source: honeyandsoy.com

If you don’t fancy on a traditional cake for a cake’s sake, then why not use cupcakes that can vary in designs and flavours? If you also have a three tier cake stand, then having these cupcakes arranged there will also make them look like cupcake heaven.

Bridal Shower Invitation Ideas

Here Comes The Bride

bridal-shower-invitation-ideas

Image source: minkcards.com

And so, she is… but not after we do the lingerie bridal shower and make a Magic Mike star dance for us. This invitation can feature her cropped face picture on a cartoon drawing that’s holding a bouquet and wearing a gown. Truly, here’s comes the bride… but again, not after we give a shower.

Mimosas Script Bridal Shower Invitation

Looking for vintage or classic? Here’s a bridal shower invitation for you. If you’re familiar with the 80’s carnival ticket lay-outs, then the design of this invitation is also something like that. Carnival!
