Amazing Place Cards Idea

Here is a very good idea, asking your guests to literally take their seats! The place cards are designed to look like chairs, so it can stand on its own. I'm not sure if I can use this, because I'm having a reception by the pool where it might be windy. But it's an amazing inspiration!

Message on A Stone

It's another brilliant alternative to the traditional wedding guestbooks. I am seriously considering this idea: ask my guests to write their messages / wishes on a pebble or white rock and drop them in a jar. I just need to look for stones, and excellent marker and a pretty jar! Will definitely suggest this to my fiance and see what he thinks.

Reaching for A Kiss

This is a good idea for a couple photo, but the Nike sneakers, short dress and flats are too casual for my wedding. Perhaps its a good concept for our engagement shoot, especially because my fiance is a lot taller than I am. Suits us!

Luminaries by the Aisle

If I would be having a beach wedding, I would have luminaries on the aisle where I would walk down. I am having a wedding by the pool instead, so luminaries would be placed by the pool to give it a brighter glow. I'm so excited!

Folding Chair and Mason Jar

This photo completely shows the elegance and minimalistic flair that I want for my wedding ceremony. I put sunflowers in the jar, though and the chair would be painted white. It goes without saying that nothing could go wrong with a pretty mason jar! Some may think that this is too plain though. What do you think?

Paris Wedding

It's another dreamy wedding in Paris, but this time, the photo was taken right at the moment to show a purple sky and the golden tower. Hope I could go to Paris, maybe for the honeymoon? Gotta work extra hard for it though!

Beach Wedding Dress

Here is to vent out my frustration to have a beach wedding. It would be lovely to take photograph of my dress this way, instead of the traditional dress in mannequin. Maybe I could pull off something like this for my wedding, I just have to squeeze all my hidden creative juices...

Romantic Mason Jars

I've been seeing a lot of mason jars on photos as part of decors of wedding receptions and ceremonies. I'd love to have some of those on my wedding day! They're elegant but simple. My idea is to fill one fourth of the jar with white sand and place a candle on top of the sand. Easy? We'll see!

Disneyland Bride

We all dreamt to be a Disney princess when we were little girls. I, for one, was in love with an imaginary Aladdin. To have a wedding in Disneyland would've been the most magical thing ever. Twenty-plus years later, I would be happy to have a wedding by the beach.

Sparks are Flying

I would love to have sparklers on my wedding instead of flower petals! But our ceremony will happen before the sun sets, so I don't think it will work. Maybe on our reception? Just don't know which part. This photo is simply amazing.

Toast to the Couple

Brides who are into the tiniest details like me would appreciate this. It would be cute to use these during the couple's toast! This is not for my minimalist wedding, but I like the idea. What do you think?

Surreal Ceremony

Its a neat and attractive setup for the wedding ceremony. Had a meeting with my caterer this weekend, and they are charging quite a lot for the ceremony setup and decor. The practical bride in me is trying to figure how I can DIY something a magical as this!

She's Always Right

I am sure that grooms already know this even before they proposed to their ladies! If so, well that makes him Mr. Right. This is a cute wedding idea, and although I'm not going to do this for my wedding, it made me smile today!

Symbols of Love

Lovely way to photograph the engagement ring and wedding band of the bride. I wonder where I can find a plate like this? On another note, I have yet to find a supplier for our wedding bands for our upcoming wedding.

Wedding in Paris

Didn't we all dream to marry in the romantic city of Paris as a child? This photo is romantic in its own way, with the couple holding hands, wearing fedoras. Dreamy and lovely!

That Perfect Moment

Poolside, boardwalk, and fireworks. Just the perfect moment for a newlywed's kiss! This is lovely shot taken by the photographer. I'm not really a fan of fireworks, especially for my own wedding because of venue restrictions, but this photo seemed to have pulled it off. Love it!

Guitar Guestbook

I want my wedding to be personal, just like the couple who used a guitar in place of the traditional wedding guestbook. The couple were music lovers and both played the guitar, making a very appropriate choice. Cute, isn't it?

Barefoot on the Boardwalk

Yup, I'm a sucker for casual weddings where people can look elegant yet laid back, like this lovely couple. Boardwalk, candles, bare feet all make up for a nice, warm and cozy summer themed wedding. 

Hanging Candlelights Over Dinner

It's such a lovely ambiance to have in a wedding as you celebrate with family and friends--hanging candle lights. Although I'm not quite sure how they made it (must have required professional help) so DIY brides like me may find it difficult to recreate. Still, nothing should stop a creative bride from having a lovely reception venue!

Beach Wedding Cake

Having a beach or summer themed wedding? This cake is so pretty with the simple minimalist look, keeping the colors to white, light blue and hints of yellow. I also love the unpredictable irregular layers.

Vintage Car Photo

An excellently sweet concept to take the picture of the newlyweds! Hope I could also find a bridal car that is as vintage and still shiny as this one for my wedding. I'm not so sure if I could find a venue as grassy though!
