As a leading UK event videographer, Bloomsbury Films have picked up some key style tips that can transform an average wedding into a truly inspired and magically memorable occasion.
They share their Top Tips for Creative Wedding Style with expectant couples who are looking for the Wow Factor:
Wedding Cake Alternatives
Bloomsbury suggests that there are a range of fabulously impressive alternatives to the traditional wedding cake. Ideas include a glorious croquembouche (pastry and other types of confectionery arranged in a large cone that is held together by a caramel sauce), designer cupcakes or even an artfully sculpted cheese tower.
Take the typical sweets and desserts to a whole new level by personalising these nibbles with edible paper that has a design which reflects the wedding theme or the sentiments of the couple.
Rather than the traditional table centrepiece with flowers and foliage, Bloomsbury has seen couples impress guests with their creative streak for table settings. Ideas include colourful buttons or rose petals strewn about the table for finesse, stylish vintage maps instead of place mats and pretty bowls filled with fun bits and bobs. Another idea is to substitute floral centrepieces with towering arrangements of deliciously vibrant fruits – the citrus variety in particular will also fill the room with a lovely fresh scent.
Bathrooms at wedding events are often overlooked when it comes to décor, however bear in mind that guests, especially the ladies, spend a fair amount of time there. Create a luxurious atmosphere with bowls of opulent hand-made soap, plenty of fresh flowers and candles if it’s an evening event.
Bear in mind that many churches no longer allow the traditional rice or confetti to be thrown as a new couple exit the church, because it causes too much of a clean-up problem advises Bloomsbury Films. Rather than do away with this special part of the nuptials, rose petals can be given to guests in pretty coloured paper cones to shower the happy newly-weds.
Get Guests Mingling
Most receptions can be a tribal, sedentary affair, with people sitting around in tightly knit groups. A good way to lift the mood and get guests mingling when the weather is nice is to set up fun garden games that don’t require much effort and can even be done with a drink in hand. Ideas include croquet, bocce ball, and quoits.
Another idea to keep guests entertained and to encourage mingling at tables is to place trivia or conversation starter cards at each table that match the chosen wedding theme.
Novel Idea for an All Night Party
Rounding up their Top Tips for Creative Wedding Style, Bloomsbury Films advise a lovely idea for those who intend to celebrate their wedding by dancing the night away is to arrange a mini breakfast hamper favour for each guest – simply buy inexpensive small baskets and fill then with muffins, fruit and mini versions of jams. An extra addition which will be very welcome on warm summer evenings is to supply pretty paper fans for the ladies.
