WAYS TO INCLUDE YOUR KIDS IN YOUR WEDDING

1 April 2016

Blended families or couples who already have children together are somewhat the ‘norm’ these days rather than the exception, so it’s a no-brainer that you want to include the kids in the wedding. It is important to find a special way to incorporate them involve them wedding so they feel like they are an actual part of the marriage. Of course it is lovely to have the as part of the wedding party, but it isn’t your only option - here are some of our favourite ways to include your children into the wedding…

Have them as part of the bridal party

If you’re having a traditional wedding then there is no reason to find an alternative way to include your kids – the kid friendly role of flower girl and/or ring bearer is simple, fun and always a crowd-pleaser. If that’s not your style, why not have them open the ceremony by walking down the aisle holding a sign, banner or whatever you want to include.

Include them in the ceremony

Why not include your children in the ceremony itself. If you’re having a sand ceremony, why not extend it to include some sand for your kids and let them pour some into a bigger jar – it will look perfect on your mantel place in your house. If your kids are old enough, let them have a say in the ceremony with a super adorable “we do” vow moment – what a super cute way to seal the deal.

Family dance

Halfway through your first dance, why not have the kids cut in and join?! Not only does this include them in the reception, but it is such a special moment and makes for the perfect photo opportunity. Add a few of their favourite jams to the DJ’s playlist and watch them boogie with excitement.

Family cake topper

A quirky and super adorable way to include the kids is to have a family cake topper rather than a bride and groom. If it’s a larger family, why not work with your cake supplier to create a wedding cake that involves everyone and shows off the family.

Wedding décor

its time to get crafty! This is the perfect fun way that kids can contribute to the wedding – DIY craft projects. Have them help you create wedding favours, place cards, kids activities or even centrepieces – it doesn’t matter if its not perfect, it makes them feel like they were part of creating the big day. If DIY projects aren’t on your wedding to-do list, than have kids take part in the decision-making process, why not have them choose the cake flavour or even take part in the design process.

BOA STYLE - MIRRORED SIGNS

7 March 2016

Add some instant glamour to your wedding with the use of mirror signs – a simple and striking addition to your nuptials. They look gorgeous and are reusable – simply use chalk markers to write with [nail polish will easily remove it after] and then wipe them clean once done and hang them around your new home together or reuse them for the reception. You can write everything from directions, to menus, bar lists or even seating plans!

Instead of using chalk markers, why not work with your stationery designer and print out seating chart cards to stick onto the mirror for a cleaner look. Monogramming your initials on a mirror makes for a gorgeous statement piece hanging on a flower wall placed either behind the bridal table or even hanging over the bar or dessert buffet.

Why not incorporate mirrors in an unconventional way and use mirror-based trays in different sizes and shapes attached to a backboard? This makes for a unique point of difference and can be tailored to your desire. Finish of the look with some gorgeous florals and you’re set to WOW your guests as they enter.

WEDDING STYLE - LET'S GO FOR A PICNIC

17 December 2015

A picnic wedding is laid back, unique + so much fun when it comes to the simplicity of a summer wedding – especially when an outdoor ceremony turns to a night of fun under the stars. Picnic rugs with matching baskets to lawn games + a whole lot of cheese + wine makes for the ultimate outdoor summer soiree. Its time to get creative ladies; DIY sandwich bars, barrels of beer, festoon lighting + you could even get your handy hubby-to-be to construct a much needed lemonade stand.

WEDDING STYLE - COURTYARD

3 November 2015

A gorgeous balmy night spent under the stars singing, dancing + celebrating - it’s time to draw inspiration from traditional European courtyard ceremony and receptions – and ladies this is a trend we just LOVE! The beauty of a courtyard wedding is that you have the ability to go as formal or informal as you like – a three-course dinner or canapés + share plates – the choice is all yours. A courtyard is a blank canvas so this is your perfect excuse to play with theming + lighting; the possibilities are endless from glamorous chandeliers to festoon lights. Don’t forget to let your guests know they will be dining al fresco, we all know that ‘sinking feeling’ when we wear stilettos on soft + uneven surfaces.
