Last week’s Just Be You Inspiration Board worked so great (Rock n Roll Bride featured it, hello!), I thought I’d slap another one together for some wedding inspiration and to keep y’all inspired to just be YOU.
This week’s board is filled with ideas that you may have originally scoffed at when first presented with. Truth be told: I scoffed at A LOT of ideas my Specialover presented to me in the beginning of our wed-planning journey. I’d say to him: “What?! Not give everyone an actual seat during the ceremony, are you crazy?!” …And then, after much thought, I realized that a ceremony where some of the guests sat on blankets would be really freakin rad. Just take a look at the wedding in the bottom right corner of this board.
Cool, right? Just head to a fabric store, purchase some burlap for $1.25/yd and cut it up into picnic blanket-sized sheets. Slap the burlap blankets alongside the aisle and in the front row, and instruct the younger folk to cop-a-squat. And hey, you could even sweeten the deal for those on the ground by serving a little sangria or lemonade.
Crazy idea numero dos that’s actually cool: Doughnut tower cake. You could make that shiz the morning of, dudes. NO JOKE. Hit up The Krisp, pick out 100 doughnuts in assorted flavors and coordinating colors, bring ’em back to your desert table and stack ’em until they look pretty. Dessert: DONE. (And damn delicious).
Next up: Dance floor alternative. Let’s face it, some people just don’t dance. Lawn games are an awesome way to get your guests to have fun and interact. My favorite is Bocce Ball. It’s cheap, super-easy to learn and requires no set-up.
Attire this week is all about honoring your heritage. I asked Mike if he were Scottish would he wear a kilt at our wedding, and he came back with an enthusiastic YES. So if you’re considering incorporating your heritage in your attire, I say go for it! Even if that means wearing a skirt, gentlemen 😉
And lastly, there needs to be more pizza served at weddings. PERIOD. End of story. Just look at that pizza porn up there. I’d serve that at my wedding in a hot minute — and it would be cheap.
What “crazy ideas” are you reconsidering now?
