A Pillow For Your Thoughts
You really have so many options when it comes to showcasing your bling up the aisle. This is yet another way where you can display your event’s personality and your exquisite taste. Remember, there are several things that you can just "cheap it" with (buy the Wal-Mart or Michael’s version or even DIY it), this being included. The key, however, is to make it serve a dual functional purpose.
It doesn’t have to be white:
You can incorporate your color inexpensively like this beautiful tiffany blue pillow. It’s bright, it’s colorful, and fun! You can also use a colored bow inexpensively for an alternate effect.
It doesn’t have to be a pillow:
This beauty coming from Etsy is a popular among our brides– the moss ring pillow. There are several variations like this au natural moss basket built in a nest which is perfect to accompany some of the bird and branch themes that have been peaking through this season. Or even these beautiful pillows made of green mums (Huckleberry Karen).
Now, if you want to get all matchy— you could shoot for the coordinating guest book, pen, pillow and flower girl basket. Or you could throw caution and the Invitations by Dawn catalog out the window and tie your concept together in a more round about way. For example– got a beach theme? Have your little guy carry a conch shell down the aisle with fauxbulous rings attached (tie them to a weight, and slip it inside the shell). You can even try for a large starfish as well.
Go for Baroque:
Another non-traditional option would be to think way out of the box; well perhaps in the box….the jewelry box. Options like this gorgeous silver etrog baroque box (left) or the luxe glass boxes from Marietas Glass. Just make sure your carrier is responsible and able to carry it.
No matter what you choose, make sure it reflects you and what you want your guests to feel about your event.
