I love weddings that are personal. I remember the first time I went o a wedding with cupcakes, before they were trendy. It was soemthing I had never seen and I thought it was really cute. What are some unique things you have seen at weddings?

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
Gonna hafta pat myself on the back here.
I decided (and this was pre-Weddingbee for me, which means I must actually be somewhat good at crafts on my own!) to make my sister’s cardbox. In line with her fall theme, I created a 3D paper-maiche autumn tree — and guests would drop the cards in a hole in the trunk.
I really should see if I could get a copy of picture featuring Lu (yes, since he took a month to create, the tree/cardbox took on a name and identity).

I didn’t see it myself, but a friend went to a wedding where the programs contained a short bio for EACH GUEST in attendance at the wedding. It was a thoughtful way to show how that person connected to the bride and groom and so people got to know each other at the wedding!

At the last wedding I went to the bride’s sister made her gown… it didn’t look like a handmade gown either- it was compareable to a Melissa Sweet. It was gorgeous. I’m learning to sew so I can do this for my sister.

Jules, I love that idea! It sounds like a theatre program, where they list bios for the whole cast and crew. What a great way to make your guests feel welcome and incorporated!

Wow! Jules, do you happen to know how many guests were at that wedding with the bios in the program? That is such a sweet and thoughtful idea!
The most unique thing I’ve seen at a wedding was at an American/Iranian wedding. The ceremony was a unique blend of both customs and was really special and interesting. The program contained descriptions and explanations of each tradition in the ceremony so that both the Iranian and American guests could follow along and understand the significance of the other culture’s rituals.

I don’t know if it was incredibly unique, but my sister had a very handmade feel, and just knowing that she did so much of it herself really added to it. She made her own dress (and it looked amazingly vintage) and did her own cake. My parents and aunt made all of the food.
