UNIQUE Ideas: Wedding Signs

Wedding signs can serve two purposes. They can help guide your guests and they can be a decorative addition.

If your wedding layout is confusing, signs will help guide your guests. To know if your wedding layout can be confusing, is to walk it as a guest. Are there twists and turns that may entice your guests?

When it comes to the decorative aspect, putting some signs around your wedding with fun sayings and cute details will add an extra special touch.

Are these pointing you in the right direction?

Ombre is all the rage! Utilizing multiple shades of the same color, from light to dark, creates dimension and interest and adds a modern touch to your wedding.

UNIQUE Ideas: Subtle Statement

Happy Tuesday UNIQUE fans!

As you must know, we are BIG fans of color, but you don't always need a color blast to make a statement. Sometimes an ivory wedding is just the thing to capture the elegant, timeless statement that you are seeking. To add some variety, bring in some different shades of ivory, white, and champagne. Candlelight is the perfect compliment to this color scheme. When is comes to lighting, amber (the color of candlelight) will always complement it.

Sometimes the most subtle look can create the most breathtaking statement!
