Two elements set the tone for a wedding and reception. Brides capitalize on this when planning their unique weddings.

Wedding Stationery

Wedding stationery like save-the-dates and/or invitations are the first glimpse into your wedding style for your guests. The design, colors and style of these items set a tone in the guest’s mind for what is to come with the actual event.

It’s not a good idea to choose wedding stationery with a theme and then not follow through on the actual event. Your guests will be disappointed. Give them a taste, a glimpse a vibe of what’s to come and whet their appetite. The anticipation will keep them motivated to make sure they RSVP and show up!

Reception Decor

The second, very important element is the decor. Your decor sets the vibe for your wedding and reception. Pay attention to your choices. Make sure they actually add to the feeling or vibe you want to create. A unique bride never chooses a piece of decor because it’s easy, convenient or what the florist or planner tries to talk you into to make the job easier on her/him.

Remember, a theme is intended to transport your guests to another place, time, era or show your love for a hobby, vocation or item. Your centerpieces, vignettes, special table decor and even your buffet can add to the total picture or theme you are creating.

So, no matter what theme or scheme you choose, start your guests with an idea of what to expect with your save-the-dates and/or invitations. Continue the same idea through your decor choices — transport your guests to your theme through decor.

Funny thing:  I know a lot of people that attended a wedding they were not planning to attend simply because of the subtle promise of something different and unique made through the invitation.

Will you make that same promise to your guests and be a unique bride?
