I love when they have pictures of the couple’s parents’ weddings on the gift table.  I love seeing all the wedding photos of different generations of the families.

I really enjoyed making individual menus. They allowed me to carry the theme over in the colors and the fonts in a really easy way :).

@MrsTVLover:  +1 I am doing this with both our parents and all the grandparents photos.  I sure hope people notice and appreciate it as much as I do.

@Mrs_Sailor:  I agree with @jo.lee: that paper in all forms can be the best way to carry your theme all over the wedding. From programs, to place cards – to menus to any signs, etc.

I also think any types of garlands you can think of. We are doing bunting – but there are the flower garlands, pom pom garlands, etc etc etc – plus you can use them at one space them take them to the reception area and rehang them there – plus it shouldn’t take up much space 🙂

@Mrs_Sailor:  I think lighting has a big impact, especially strings of globe lights or Christmas lights, or soft candlelight. And then after lighting, definitely anything personal, like the others mentioned of photos.

I agree, a simple string of lights is really striking.  And yes, paper lanterns.  I know they’re cliche, but I still love them!  They fold very small too for transporting.

I love that vase look you posted!

I look at the cake topper and centrepieces the most when I go to a wedding.

When we renew our vows, we will have our initials and a number five in between them on top of our cake.

This is going to sound so silly, but we had our venue put the cloth napkins (red, to fit our colors) in the wine glasses instead of folded on the table. Seemingly small and unimportant detail, but it made a huge difference in the first impression of our reception venue!
