Ceremony & Reception Details
Once you have decided on a theme select your wedding attire, flowers and centerpieces to suit it.
• Wedding Attire

It is all about laces, chiffons, light silks, satins, pearls and crystals & and breezy silhouettes. To make it a unique wedding idea and a cost-effective one you can have your bridesmaids wear cocktail dresses instead of floor length gowns, or you can just give them swatches of your color motif and have them buy their own dresses, it’s stress free and again cost-effective, and a unique wedding idea.
• Flowers and Bouquets
Add a little twist! Another unique wedding idea is by adding beads, crystals, pearls, or any non-floral ornaments into your bouquets. To trim down on your expenses, use flowers that are near the wedding site or use flowers that are in season like dahlias, chrysanthemums, and chrysanthemums.
Flowers always make a great centerpiece, but spice it up with non-floral embellishments like accessories that your guests may enjoy to take home after the wedding. Another unique wedding idea is adding non-floral embellishments, like for a fall wedding add berries, pine cones, feathers, twigs, fruits and also vegetables.
