12 Fun Ideas to Borrow from Real Weddings

Planning & Advice

Real weddings are one of the best places to go for inspiration! It can give you a feel for a wedding venue, some dress or suit ideas and of course tons of other fun touches you can steal for your own Big Day. Today we’ve rounded up some seriously fun ideas we’ve come across over the past few months – some of them will go down a treat with guests  (the wedding speech sweepstake cards are genius!) while others will just add some pizzazz and personality to the occasion (we love the giant bride balloons below and adore the idea of involving your precious pet). Check out some more fun ideas to borrow from real weddings below…
