We love to plan weddings that show off the personality of the bride and groom. We found the following unique place setting ideas that have inspired us. These place settings give guests a feel for the type of wedding they are attending. We hope you find one that you like and may possibly use at your own wedding.
You’re engaged! Congratulations! Most of you will begin compiling the guest list and think about whether or not you should send out wedding save the dates. Save the dates are highly recommended if you are planning a destination wedding or getting married during peak travel times. Sending out save the dates will give your guests time to make travel arrangements. We recommend sending out save the dates at least 6 months prior to your wedding day.
So now that you have decided that you need to send out save the dates, we have prepared some different ways of making this announcement to your friends and family. Enjoy!

Planning a formal affair – send your guests some confetti to show them what’s to come.

Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit organization granting wedding and vow renewals for couples facing serious illness or a life-altering circumstance. We are strong supporters of what the organization is trying to accomplish. We attended the Blissful Wishes Ball that took place at the Intercontinental Hotel Century City. The ballroom was decorated with a modern love theme.
The highlight of the evening was when some of the wish recipients took the stage and and shared their experiences with Wish Upon a Wedding and their journey. We hope to continue to support Wish Upon a Wedding in any way that we can by either volunteering or donating part of our proceeds to help out those in need.
With Christmas just around the corner, we want to share some Holiday wedding inspirations with brides who love Christmas just as much as we do.
