I’m a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding this weekend and I’m trying to come up with some nice things/ ideas to decorate their honeymoon suite the night of their wedding. Because I’m flying from across the country I don’t want to pack it with me, so I need to be able to pick stuff up at the store. So far I’m thinking that I’ll get the little led flameless candles to put in colored votives (do not want to start a fire!!), maybe fake silk rose petals,and a small basket of some of their favorite snacks. Anything else anyone can think of/ done before that friends have appreciated? Has anyone had someone dislike the suite decoration?

Do your friends like wine or champagne? Or what about chocolates? Love the idea of the flameless candles, and the rose petals are a classic. 🙂

All of those things sound wonderful. It’s so nice that you’re doing this!

P.S. The only suite decoration I’ve ever heard as going badly was actually from a WB user. The couple’s friends “decorated” their suite with all kinds of inappropriate stuff. So just make sure to keep it in line with your friend’s taste and I’m sure they’ll love it! So nice of you, too, by the way.

@Gemstone:Champagne is a great idea to add! When I google searched ideas, I saw a couple of posts that were against this type of thing. A guy ranted that it’s no-one’s business to decorate a room, so I got a little bit nervous about what would be good and if anyone had any horror stories.
She and my bridesmaids got my husband and me some “dirty dice” and sex related things, I thought it was funny, but I think I want to go with a more romantic approach. She loves reeces penut butter cups so I’m def going to include some of those, and maybe look into getting some nice chocolates.
I’d still like to hear anything even more unique, special, or know of anything to stay completely away from!
Thank you bees!!

Here’s what I would do: Go buy a nice picnic basket (really old school) and a pretty tablecloth, some pretty toasting glasses, and champagne or wine. Pack that in the basket along with some empty tupperware or something of that nature (don’t forget silverware!). Take it to the reception venue and ask the catering staff to please put aside food for the B and G in the tupperware. IF they can actually do it right away that would be perfect b/c you could put it in the hotel room. If not, then check in on it when B and G won’t notice during the reception. At some point, slip it in the getaway car near their stuff so they will see it. And there you have it: a romantic picnic with food they love and probalby didn’t get much of! Don’t forget to include some cake! You could also include some breakfast foods so they won’t have to leave the room in the morning for hotel breakfast.

Just an over-due update! We ended up going with champagne, cheese and crackers, different types of specialty chocolates (individually wrapped so they wouldn’t melt!), reeces pb cups, a cute bottle stopper for the champagne so if they opened and didn’t finish right away they’d be okay. We decorated the room with a dozen led candles, put in red and gold votive holders (we scattered them all over so it looked really romantic when all the lights were out) and we scattered fake rose petals from the door to the bed where on the bed where the basket of goodies was! I actually still need to ask her how they liked it! It was fun to do regardless 🙂
