You know, I’m starting to realize that even when you think you have a completely original idea that no one has EVER done at their wedding before…..you’re probably wrong. It’s probably been done.
So I can honestly say, I thought of this idea completely on my own, until I googled it and realized that someone else had already thought of it. But, it’s an awesome idea nonetheless and I’m so excited about it!
I ordered a bunch of decorative vintage looking keys for my vintage glam wedding. They just arrived today! I am going to tie little tags to them with ribbons that show the guests names and their table number. Then hang them on something cool (I’m thinking gold tree branches) with a sign over top that says “Find the key to your heart (or at least your seat!) Cheesy? Maybe. But then again no one ever said that my fiance and myself are not cheesy.
What do you think? Good idea? Lame?
How about you? Ever think of a decor or other idea that you thought was SO original only to find out it’s been done a hundred times already?

@ChelseaBells: Cute idea, but I would hang them on something so that you can arrange them alphabetical.
Otherwise it will be a major bottleneck of people searching for their randomly placed key with their name on it.

@ChelseaBells: It’s okay that it’s been done before. None of your particular guests will probably have seen it. I think it’s very cute!

I think it’s adorable! And while I have seen ideas like this online, I have never been to a wedding that actually used keys, so I still think it’s fairly original.

I agree with the PP’s that I wouldn’t worry about it not being ‘original’. I think that most people will have not been to a wedding where they had them. Also, I agree that maybe finding a way to organize how you’re hanging them, so you don’t have ‘traffic’ around that area.

I love it! I have seen it before but only because I’ve been crazy on Pinterest and wedding blogs since I got engaged.
I wouldn’t say I’ve had one specific idea that I discovered wasn’t original, but I have seen wedding recaps on Style Me Pretty and other wedding blogs that almost have every single element of what I am planning. Seriously there was a wedding recap I saw where literally everything was the same as our plan except for the bridesmaid dresses, my wedding dress and the centerpieces. The wedding colors, table settings, favors, cake flavors and even the couple’s honeymoon destination was the same as ours!! Talk about creepy. When I read where they were honeymooning I almost fell out of my chair.
It is a little disappointing to think you planned something so original and so great only to find its been done already. But I can say with certainty that hardly any of my guests will have seen our ideas yet so at least it’ll be new to them! I’m sure your key project will be completely original to your guests.

@ThreeMeers: Hmmm, good idea. I never thought of that. I was thinking merely from an esthetic point of view, and not so much logistical.
