The stars even dress chairs in designer styles!
Chairs are wedding decorations, too. A simple way to dress up a bride and groom’s chair or a special guest’s seat is to use flowers and vines to create the person’s first initial and hang it from the back of the chair using a simple ribbon. To add a personal touch, you can even use ribbon with a personalized message like ‘On this day I marry my best friend’ or simply ‘Thank you’. Use a combination of garland ivy with your favourite wedding flowers …and voila… a beautiful way to dress up and set apart the most important people you’d like to recognize on your wedding day.
Canadian singer Avril Lavigne…
and Sum 41 lead singer Deryck Whibley had an exquisite outdoor ceremony that lacked no attention to detail. Covered in white rose petals, the white aisle runner that Avril had walked down with her father in arm, beautifully contrasted the manicured green surroundings. If you’re having outdoor wedding, aisle runners are an inexpensive way to dress up your ceremony and offer a beautiful visual backdrop for wedding photos. Add rose petals to your aisle runner and at the altar for an added touch of elegance.
Marcia Ross from the hit series Desperate Housewives…
…and husband Tom Mahoney literally put the ‘sweet’ at their sweet table. The sweet table was filled with tall jars of taffy, jellybeans, hard candies and chocolates. A sure party pleaser and a unique way to top off the evening! It can also be an easy and inexpensive way to treat your wedding guests after a night of dinner and dance. Vases are quite affordable and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Find your favourite vases and fill them with candies that you can purchase in bulk. Before the reception ends, have your caterer set up a sweet station with your candy filled vases for guests to devour. Oh, and don’t forget the all important candy scoop, they even come heart shaped!
American Idol contestant Katherine McPhee…
…recently married Nick Cokas and indulged their wedding guests with a spectacular chocolate fountain. Who doesn’t like chocolate?

Filled with chocolate and surrounded with colourful fruits – it’s a great conversation piece and it’s certain to hit the spot for those grumbling tummies waiting for their entrée.

Ideas are free, making them your wedding day unique is fun, and sharing it with family and friends is priceless!
