...I mean the love-shaped cushion, hung at the flower arch, feeling your hand in mine, hearing the applause and laughter, drenched in rose petals, I am totally smitten by the moment.

Found in The Wedding Thoughts.


 
 

To add on to ilane's cute cute picture of aisle decoration, try umbrellas! Yeah, I am crazy over umbrellas now. The color combination of pink and orange looks good too.

 
 

Instead of the usual floral decorations along the aisle, try colourful lanterns instead These are easy to create and adds an eye-catching pop of colour.

Or were theatres your favourite paktor spot? Why not consider a movie-themed wedding then?

Throw a Popcorn + Martini party for all your girlfriends at The Screening Room. Book their private theatre, indulge in Sex and The City, chick flicks or slasher flicks and scream the house down.

After that, adjourn to the Rooftop bar with gorgeous views of the city and thrash the bride! Same for the bachelor. Though the choice of drinks and movies might be different. Or not. ;)

 While we are on Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, why not host a couple shower? Since the Jie Meis and Siong Dis typically don't run in the same circles, it would be a great chance for your bridesmaids to get to know your groomsmen.  And who knows, the Jie Meis can take the opportunity to suss the guys out and modify their door games accordingly! Just a thought.

For invitations, look for inspiration in the old school movie ticket or favourite movie poster. Bride on a budget? Ask around for a Poly graphic design student to customise an invitation for you.

And lastly, isn't a popcorn table number just a fabulous idea? Something to fill up the guests too as they wait for dinner to start. Can even personalise with your wedding photo shoots on the other side.

You want to tell your guests when they arrive, Welcome to Our Wedding. All the more you want to make sure they feel assured that it is the right place, especially when it's a "hot" day and there's more than 1 bridal couple sharing the same hotel, same floor, ballrooms next to each other etc.

Short of pulling out a A4 size paper with names scribbled on it, take advantage of signages as decorations or even complementing your wedding theme.

Get a carplate made, involve it in your photoshoot, put it up as a signage for the dinner and after the event, put it up on the wall in your new love nest. Multi-Purpose!


My artistic sister drew a couple caricature for us for use on our Solemnization Day. She requested two pictures of us, used watercolors to give some texture feel, cut out pictures of roses and precious moments to give more layering effects. Our florist then put up the picture on the wall, with two richly coloured rose petals taped next to it. It drew marvels from our guests that day.


Wedding movie posters have been a rather popular sights in recent times. I guess the saying is that life is like a movie. And after all, weddings can be pretty egoistic. I spotted this arty poster that looks like some award-winning movie from Picturehouse in printpalette.


 
 

Literally. Imagine as part of the wedding reception, you have a table arrangement made of dipped fruits, marshmellows etc. Very eye pleasing, very memorable and definitely more practical than flowers! Edible Arrangements, aptly named.

Berry Chocolate Bouquet filled "with fresh strawberries, chocolate covered strawberries, pineapple daisies, cantaloupe and grapes."


"A beautiful array of chocolate dipped apples topped with a special cinnamon blend, pineapple daisies, strawberries, honeydew, cantaloupe, grapes and fresh orange slices presented in a keepsake metal centerpiece container."


 
 

No, not the gunpowder kind but the harmless and sweet rose petal cannons. In our own attempt to cut cost, we were exploring DIY methods and chanced upon Simply Rose Petals. Something like party poppers, just imagine the sprays of rose petals with the glorious festive sound of pop pop pop!
One thing about the rose petals is that they won't stain and perfectly eco-friendly, being 100% biodegradable.

FAQ I got from the site
How many Rose Petal Cannons do I need?
For a good photographic effect we recommend 3 to 6 cannons. Most couples like to treat the bridal party or close family members to a cannon.
Do the Rose Petal Cannons make a loud noise?
The cannons make a bit of a bang when they are released but it is not loud enough to scare anyone.
Can you release the Rose Petal Cannons more than once?
No. The Rose Petal Cannons are single release only.
When should we release the Rose Petal Cannons?
Typically you release the cannons when you exit the ceremony or during the photo shoot. However, many couples have released them when they're kissing at the alter, cutting the cake, announcing their arrival, during the bridal waltz or for the proposal.
TIP: make sure you let your photographer know that you're using the cannons so he/she can capture their release on film.
