Wedding Ideas You Haven't Already Seen on Pinterest ...


Maybe I’m the only person who does this, but do you ever look around at a wedding you’re at and think “they stole this straight from Pinterest, and this straight from Pinterest, and this straight from Pinterest” and on and on?

Don’t get me wrong, Pinterest weddings are just about as awesome as it gets, but at a certain point, don’t we all want to see a little bit of originality?

As wedding season begins, whether you’re planning your own wedding or someone else’s, try to keep these ideas in mind!

1. Place Cards with Flowers

Place Cards with Flowers

If you’re looking for something that isn’t too traditional to help seat your guests, try this instead.

Simply buy small vases in bulk by either stocking up on coupons to Hobby Lobby and Michael’s or scouring the Internet for good wholesale deals.

Then, purchase bunches of cut flowers from your local florist (you could even get these from your grocery store!) and place a single flower in each vase.

Then, tie a piece of string to a place card.

Your guests not only have a place card, but a unique party favor.

2. Settle down in a Love Seat

Settle down in a Love Seat

Couples everywhere forgo the traditional head table for a smaller, sweetheart table.

Take that idea one step further by including a loveseat.

Whether you put it at a head table or a sweetheart table, adding a comfortable spot for you to sit after a long day is not only essential, but also really cute.

Your wedding will be one of the busiest days in your life.

By the end of the day, the reception, you’ll want to be comfortable.

Do that by incorporating a loveseat into your reception.

3. Try a Flash Mob

Try a Flash Mob

Flash mobs are much more synonymous with a wedding proposal rather than a wedding reception.

Whether you’re planning your own wedding or a friend’s wedding, come up with a routine that’s easy enough for the entire group to get involved.2

Then, at a random point during dinner, preferably towards the end, have someone start the flash mob, and try to get everyone involved.

You’ll get everyone excited to start dancing as the night transitions from dinner to dancing.
