7 Unique Wedding Ideas

As the 2011 wedding season is in full swing, I have had the opportunity to decorate many weddings and special events. During the planning process, many of my clients have asked, "can you give me some unique ideas for my reception?" Many people want to plan an event that stands out from the other events that their guests have attended. The fact is that unique ideas will keep guests talking about the event from months to come.  Here are seven unique ideas that you can implement in your wedding or next special event.

1. Signature Cocktails
At any wedding, the food and alcohol are always key features. Surprise your guests by serving a swanky signature cocktail. A signature drink can be a favorite beverage of the of the couple, a drink that holds sentimental value, or one that happens to match the color scheme of the event.  This small detail makes a wonderful addition to any event.

2. Photo Backdrops
Allow your guests to be stars at your wedding! A photo backdrop is a fun addition to your wedding photography. Purchase a backdrop in your monogram and watch your guests take pics on the red carpet. It also makes everyone feel apart of the big day!

3. Alternating Colors
Have fun with your decor by alternating between colors. Instead of the conventional means of using the same color for each item, shock your guests by alternating the colors. This can be done with table linens, lighting or favors. This eye catching detail will keep your guests talking.

4. Professional Belly Dancers.
Keep your guests entertained by hiring a professional belly dancer. A belly dancer can be a compliment to your Arabian nights themed wedding or can add an exotic twist to your reception entertainment.
5. Decorate with Draping and Fabrics
Draping and fabrics are a very elegant and transformational approach to decor. Coming in a variety of textures and an array of colors, fabrics can be used to make your event as glamorous as you want or to implement your theme. Draping can also be used to hide certain features in a room or to enhance a specific area.

6. Crystals
They used to say diamonds are a girls best friend but now its crystals. Crystals are now a huge hit at weddings. They can add elegance and sophistication to event decor. From hanging crystal chandeliers from the ceilings to using crystal trees as centerpieces, crystals can be seen at the most upscale events. If implemented properly, crystals have the ability to take the event to another dimension in elegance.  Add lighting to add even more drama to the already elite crystal details.

7. Designer Table Linens:
Nothing has the impact on event decor the way specialty table linens does. Gone are the days of using basic standard table linens. Offered in a variety of textures and an array of colors, linens are the key features of any event decor. Specialty linens such as pinched wheel taffeta, pintuck and satin are in huge demand.
