11 ALTERNATIVES TO FLOWER GIRL BASKETS

Flower girls have a special place in every wedding as they pave the way for the bride! Traditionally, the flower girls toss flowers from their baskets as they walk down the aisle. Recently, we've seen different trends and alternatives for flowers and props. Here are our favorites.

Single Stems:

Instead of carrying a basket, have your flower girls carry a single stem of a similar flower to your bridal bouquet. For example Alliums, Peony and Dahlia are popular choices.

SPEECHBOOTH, A WEDDING VIDEO BOOTH!

Speeches have always been a major part of weddings. Whether it's a prepared speech for the audience or simple congratulations, everyone wants to leave their heartfelt messages for the newlyweds. However, due to time constraint, usually 1 to 2 people are given the opportunity to give a speech. Then, the bride and groom spend a while going to every table to say their thanks as their guests give them their blessings and pass on special wishes. Unfortunately, not all of them are captured nor remembered! We recently came across SpeechBooth, which is a great way to save these speeches and allow everyone at the wedding to pass on their special, fun, and even silly messages.

GUESTERLY: A WEDDING YEARBOOK

One of the best parts of weddings is being gathered in a room full of people you know, don't know, haven't seen for a long time, or just met and dancing, drinking, eating and celebrating together all night! Weddings sometime become reunions for family, friends, and even a place where new friendships and relationships are made. Ultimately, they are a place where people connect! Imagine being familiarized with all the guests before you actually attended a wedding. You would feel more connected, comfortable and enjoy the wedding collectively. You would skip the lengthy introductions and in a way feel like old friends with everyone there. We recently came across Guesterly that does just that. Guesterly is basically a yearbook for your wedding! It is a wedding guide to who's who. As a guest, you’ll know how the other guests know the couple, learn about them, and even identify some of your long lost relatives! Guesterly focuses on the guests, making sure they love and enjoy the wedding as well.
