Homemade Wedding Favors
Creating your own favors may seem prohibitively time-consuming but can offer a personal touch that attendees really appreciate . Try making bars of soap with a signature fragrance and hand-lettered labels . For those who knit or crochet , making a collection of coasters could delight guests while helping you de-stress . Personalized cookies with initials , names or a wedding date can be made well in advance and kept in the freezer .
Day-After Waffles & Mimosas
Bring your loved ones together one last time with a post-nuptial brunch . Cap off your celebration with a light buffet instead of a plated meal to avoid overindulgence and accommodate sleepyheads .
Statement Table Décor
Go big with memorable decorative elements like crystal chandeliers , citrus trees or glowing lanterns . Create a fairytale tablescape with tall cherry blossom branches strung with white lights for an enchanting , elegant design . Make a bold statement with rustic , textured centerpieces that bring outdoor beauty into your venue .




Book a Stylist
Consider adding a stylist to your wedding dream team . From advice on wardrobe selections to day-of portrait services , a stylist can ensure a wedding couple and their attendants are chic , comfortable and confident . A stylist ’ s advice on the fabric , cut and design of some of the most expensive clothing you may ever purchase could prove very valuable .
Reception Remix
Couples are personalizing their postceremony celebrations with a mix of live entertainment . Karaoke has gotten popular as a way to not only entertain the group , but also act as an icebreaker so families and friends can really get to know each other . Lawn games like bocce and cornhole contribute to the festive atmosphere .
Canned Cocktails
Pop the top on a single-serve drink and skip the line at the bar . Margaritas , mai tais or mimosas : premixed beverages are often made with real fruit juices , no added sugar and highquality liquors . Plus , cans are a good choice for beach weddings that don ’ t allow glass .
