Pinterest Wedding Do-Over Part 2

I was inspired by a series Rachel at Holy Craft did earlier this year in which she planned a Pinterest Wedding Do-Over – she detailed all the things she would include in her wedding if she was to do it over again.

Today is our 13th anniversary! I am wrapping up Wedding Week here on my blog and once again, here are some pinterest inspired things that I might have used at my wedding, had I known about them 13 years ago!

Table Numbers..

Make the table numbers pretty, or make them meaningful. Use numbers that have meaning as table numbers, not just numbers in order. Or, at each table, include pictures of the bride and groom at the age of the number for that table. My favorite – name the tables after places. Wouldn’t it be fun to tell your friends you are sitting at Morocco?

Guest Books…

Make some sort of art out of your guests’ signatures. I love the idea of having guests fill out info about themselves and their relationship with the bride and groom – I would bind them into a book!

Wedding Knits…

I wasn’t a knitter 13 years ago, but if I had been, I would have had to knit a shawl or maybe my veil! How cool would that have been?

What do you think of these ideas? Did you use pinterest to help plan your wedding?

Happy Anniversary to you!! I got married just barely pre-Pinterest, I think. I really like the guest lips idea, that's fun and leaves you with good info about the guests besides just their names!

I love LOVE naming tables after various places! A college friend did this with places that she and her husband have traveled too. Then, the favors at that table related to that specific place. Such a great idea! A was adamant that we not having a seating chart so we didn't do that. But, if we had, we would've named them the word for love in different languages.

Dara said...

that is interesting that you didn't have a seating plan!

Holly Higgins said...

Long story short, there wasn't enough room at the main family table for everyone that wanted to be there to be included so we decided not to have a seating chart. That, along with not having a DJ and using our iPod are the two things I would redo!
