These days, it seems like most couples meet on dating apps. If you and your sweety met on Bumble, and you want to have a brilliantly subtle little nod to your meet-cute origin story at your wedding, here’s the perfect idea: HONEY wedding favors.
Offbeat Brides are always looking for ways to involve their wedding guests in the ceremony — well, OTHER than getting out their cell phones. If you’re looking for guest participation ideas, we love this cute inspo from Christopher & Kevin’s Batman vs. Mr. Freeze heroes and villains wedding: they passed out comic book inspired signs that said things like BOOM! POW! ZAMMM! that guests held up during the ceremony.
We decided to have a very intimate wedding with under 15 guests. We came across endless inspiration for unity ceremonies, but none of them were quite right for us…. until we found the idea of a rose ceremony.
Our ceremony was non-religious (we wrote our own vows), and performed by a dear friend who got ordained via the internet. The ceremony kicked off with our officiant reading the intro lyrics to Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy”…
Brittany and Matthew’s wedding at The Engine Room in Georgia had some seriously rad elements including an electric car for the ring bearer, a 3D-printed rose gold wedding band, geometric and metallic decor elements mixed with chiffon in an industrial space, and a homemade photo booth. But their glowing science experiment unity ceremony stole the show for us. So much of it was DIYed because the pair is super crafty. So it made total sense to craft up a unity ceremony, too.
If you’re a Potterphile, you know that chocolate bars have their own powers of soothing you after a dementor attack. So at a wedding with Harry Potter details (where a dementor could prey, naturally!), why not offer up some DIY Harry Potter wedding favors that will do the job nicely. Plus, it only takes some inexpensive chocolate bars, some printer paper, and a printable chocolate bar wrapper.
