Will You Have Butterflies On The Big Day?
Then here are some sizzling wedding reception decoration ideas to ensure your wedding is the ultimate in up-to-the-minute style and fashion.
Fashion? Many brides don't see their wedding as a "fashion statement" but when it comes to wedding reception decorations, there is an art to dressing tables successfully.
The hottest looks for Spring 2006 are Butterfly wedding favours and wedding cake jewelry! Butterflies are a symbol of beauty, purity and freedom.
Every bride wants to look beautiful and feel pure on her wedding day and it is also a time that a woman says goodbye to her past as she embarks on her exciting new future. There are so many different ways to get the butterfly theme running through your big day, although the best way is to start with some wedding reception decoration ideas.
Firstly, table linen must be pure white. The name of the game is simple and elegant. Team napkins with bridesmaids, perhaps a soft pink. Femininity is a big thing for 2006, so exploit it whilst you can.
Your groom should be quite accommodating if you assure him he only needs to wear pink in one area - his cravat/tie.
Introduce the idea of butterflies to your guests by incorporating them in hair decorations and floral bouquets for your entourage. Try to stick to one or two colours if you can, otherwise it could look tacky rather than sensational.
Ensure that when you choose the butterflies for hair, bouquets and favours, you also buy enough to act as wedding cake jewelry.
When it comes to the bride, she needs to look understated yet the star of the show. Therefore, include some suggestion of butterfly somewhere on the outfit. This may be a small silver bracelet with a butterfly on it, a butterfly pendant necklace or adorn a small butterfly hair jewel.
When it comes to the reception, the butterfly wedding favour boxes will steal the show! Keeping to the soft pink theme, go for pink fiore boxes with white iridescent butterflies or soft white boxes with pink butterflies. Lay them as a place setting for each of your guests and scatter the tables with iridescent confetti.
Floral centrepieces should be sweet smelling and soft coloured - why not go for sweet peas or pink and white roses? Ask your florist to put some of your butterflies on sticks and insert them into the centrepieces. You could also jazz up the napkin rings with butterflies! The possibilities are endless.
Don't forget the wedding cake jewelry as this will be the centrepiece for the whole event. Inspire guests with white or pale pink icing on your cake and finished with iridescent butterflies scattered all over it.
Remember, too many heavily coloured butterflies could look tacky and overpowering. Stick to simple, soft colours on your butterfly wedding favours, wedding cake jewellery, in your bouquets and in hair accessories. Stick to these wedding reception decoration ideas and your 2006 wedding will be talked about until 3006!
