BRIDES: 15 Unique Wedding Reception Ideas That Don't Involve Dancing

Thank you to Stephanie Cain for including me in this article on BRIDES about unique wedding reception ideas! I love using a live artist like Katherine Gressel, who painted this gorgeous piece of art for Somia and Jared’s Rainbow Room wedding.

Ring Bearer Book

One of our Brides did not want a traditional ring pillow, so she found a beautiful alternative.  A book with a hollow heart indentation to place the rings.  For the book cover, she used "Elements of Style", a classic grammar and writing book.  A book that both the Bride and Groom have sitting on their shelves at work.  It came with a magnetic closure to make sure the rings made it safely down the aisle with the little ring bearer.Harvard Club Wedding - Ang Weddings and Events - Moss & Isaac-1

Papercut Chuppah

This "papercut" style chuppah by Kuvin Oren which allows light to stream through is just stunning.  It is hand cut fabric using a sheer fabric backing.  The words in the center of the design read "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine."  A very special piece of art to say your vows under.Kuvin Oren Huppah paper cut

Custom Prints

Poppies and Posies have teamed up with designer Stephanie Singer-Eventov to create a line of custom prints, which are available at The Trove.  I adore a graphic print.  I have them all over my apartment.  You can see how a table runner like this really enhances the overall design.  Well done ladies!poppies and posies 2
