Naturally Elegant – Amazing Rustic Chic Weddings

horses

 

Rustic chic has become a popular choice for wedding themes. The back to nature, understated simplicity is perfect for those loving couples whose idea of bliss is sipping from mason jars in their cowboy boots. The theme also fits the elegant minimalist couple who believe that the focus of a wedding should be on their family, friends, and everlasting love instead of opulent and often unnecessary expenses.

It’s as easy as Mom’s home baked pie to create a rustic feel that is chic while still charming! The Flutter FETTI Team has some exciting ideas for making your rustic chic wedding a dream.

When you are going for a rustic chic wedding theme, flowers are an important aspect to consider. Your flowers should be whimsical and natural, perhaps wildflowers, baby’s breath, or clusters of daisies. The bouquets can be tied with garden twine or jute rope and the table arrangements can be vintage mason jars, either clear or tinted, in a variety of colors to suit your them.

 

 

Confetti

Celebrations that shower the bride and groom as they exit the church or ceremony location are the perfect place to set the tone for the rest of the wedding celebration. Instead of handing your guests little bottles of bubbles or packets of petals or rice, why not consider using one of our various sized confetti launchers to celebrate the newly wedded couple!  One option is to give every guest a 6″ hand held confetti launcher filled with white, biodegradable tissue confetti to send into the air as the happy couple passes by them.

 

 

Attire

Shorter tea length dresses that show off western boots provide just the right amount of sass for the bridal party. Perhaps even include cowboy hats, either the entire wedding party could wear them or just the groomsmen. Another option is casual sundresses with simple sandals (or no shoes at all)!

You want the décor to look perfect on your big day. A fantastic and inexpensive choice is getting bales of hay for your location and using them as extra seating. Hay bales can also be put to use as a place to hold flowers, chalkboard seating charts, gifts and cards or your guest book.

For an evening wedding outdoors, hang mason jars filled with votives (either real or the LED variety) on low hanging tree branches. This look creates a magical atmosphere that’s also incredible in photos! Get creative and use barrels, wood pallets, galvanized accents, and re-purposed farm implements as unique touches to your reception location.

Ceremony Ideas

Decorate your ceremony with fabrics like burlap, linen, calico, and lace. Birch wrapped accents and wooden aisle signs add a finishing touch. One cute ceremony idea is using a ring pillow that is made out of burlap or even a small bird’s nest to hold the ring! You could also have the flower girl wearing a crown of flowers or ivy while walking down the aisle for a lovely rustic touch.

A limo seems out of place at a rustic wedding. Try some other options such as a hayride, a vintage pickup truck, or even a horse drawn wagon. Don’t forget to add a special send off when the bride and groom are leaving the reception! Our 18″ airless launchers half filled with custom colored metallic streamers are a gorgeous effect for outdoor use. These streamers are very easy to clean up, and in fact, they’re so pretty that guests may pick save them as a wedding souvenir! Our airless confetti launchers provide an exciting send off to bring the wedding to a close.

Guests can have fun with their food at a “Ready to Pop” themed popcorn station!  Kick traditional popcorn up a notch by offering guests a variety of tasty flavors in everything from sweet cinnamon & sugar, peanut butter, and s’mores to savory browned butter rosemary and chili lime.

Babies certainly go through a lot of diapers! Diaper Raffle cards are a creatively cheeky way to help the parents to be in the diaper department.  Insert the raffle card along with your shower invitation.  Have guests turn in their completed raffle tickets along with their diaper pack. Before the shower ends, mix up the cards and pull the winning guest name. The prize can be anything from a lovely scented candle, assorted chocolates, or a gift card to your local coffee shop.

 

Advice for the Parents to Be and Wishes for Baby

Achieving the perfect swaddle. Bath time basics. Diaper do’s and don’ts. Everyone will have sage advice to share with the new mommy or daddy. Another heartwarming shower highlight is “Wishes for Baby”.  Both of these notecards will be cherished keepsakes. Hand out the cards along with pens/pencils as guests arrive or have the cards at each place setting. Set up a basket to collect the cards as guests leave.

Fizzy Favors

Favors are oh so fun!  They’re a great way to end the party with a pop. Set up a favor station with champagne (pink for baby girl!) and sparkling cider along with a decorative paper straw.  A neat tie in to the bit of bubby is to cover a full sized champagne bottle with cardstock (scrapbook paper from your local craft store works well) and have guests sign the bottle with a permanent marker. When baby arrives, the parents to be can toast their little one and keep the signed bottle as a special memento.

Five Alternatives to a Wedding Guestbook That Will WOW Your Guests!

Wedding Guest Book Alternatives

You know, here at Flutter FETTI, we’re always looking for new ways to help you make sure your event is unforgettable.  Spectacular in every way. It’s in our DNA!  No, really, it is. Our company continues the legendary spirit and unmatchable enthusiasm of our founder, the world’s first ever confettiologist, Jim Watkins.

Recently, we have seen some brilliantly original alternatives to the traditional wedding guestbook that we wanted to share with you.  Of course, you wouldn’t want to abandon the guestbook. Not only does it provide you with rich memories of the happy day in years to come, it also honors your guests by providing them with a chance to participate in a lasting memento of the occasion.  So, it’s a must-have for your wedding – but you want some inspiration to make sure your “guestbook” is a showstopper?

We’ve got you covered. Check out these great alternatives we found:

Message in a Bottle

Pass-a-Grill Beach wedding by cptphotography.com
Could anything be more romantic, or evocative, than a message in a bottle? You’ll need a good-sized, (preferably hand-blown) glass bottle, and a wooden or metal stand that holds it in a horizontal position. It’s also good to illuminate it – consider a desk lamp that can be adjusted to provide light from a low angle, to bring out the beauty of the glass. Provide guests with some old-fashioned writing paper and a fountain pen to write their names on. They can then carefully tear the “message” out and pop it in the bottle – very theatrical, and a beautiful memento for years to come!

 


Painted Plate

Personalized-Plate
This is a great option if you’ve decided to have an intimate, inner-circle-only wedding. With fewer guests, filling a whole guestbook is not an option. Choose a commemorative plate – if you have time, you can get it specially painted with your names and even your portraits – then equip guests with a sharp-tipped permanent marker to sign their names around the rim or across the center. Voila – you have an instant classic – something you can hang on a wall, display in a cabinet, place on a mantelpiece over the fireplace, or anywhere that takes your fancy!

 


Personalized & Signed Frame

Frame
What could be a better memento of your special day than a framed picture, signed by everyone that was there to share the experience with you? You’ll need a broad, flat frame, and a sharp-tipped permanent marker. You may want to include an engagement picture within the frame so that guests more quickly understand the concept.

 


 

Large “Alphabet” Style Letter

Alphabet Letter

A great choice if you have lots of guests. You can choose the first letter of your last name or another letter (or even a number) that has significance for you and your partner. Again, you’ll need a permanent marker. Test first on a small inconspicuous area to ensure that the surface is easy to write on and will not smudge, tear, or blot. The finished article can be hung on a wall, stood on a shelf or lit up with a strategically-placed spotlight – the choice is yours!

 


Wishing Stones

Wishing Stone
For this, a trip to a local stream will be needed. Choose enough smooth stones to allow for all of your guests, plus a few more just in case! Don’t have a stream nearby? Stop by your local craft supply store for vase filler stones. Depending on your preference, you may wish to choose all dark colored stones, all pale ones, or a mixture of both. Next, you will need a strong container to hold them all. You may choose a fruit basket, a serving tray, or an old-fashioned metal filing drawer as shown in this example. Guests will need a white “paint” type marker pen, (yes, they are available!) to write their name if you’re using dark colored stones, or a normal permanent marker if you are using light colored ones. The beauty of this option is the rich number of ways you will be able to use and display the memento of your wedding in the future. Paperweights, windowsill decorations – whether together or spread apart, you will have a priceless reminder of all the happy memories for years to come.

We hope you enjoyed this article, and that it has sparked some more ideas for you. What other creative alternatives to wedding guestbooks have you experienced? Why not share with us in the comments below?

Confetti is Still Perfect for Cruise Ship Events

Cruise Ship ConfettiIf you ever watched classic television show The Love Boat, then you probably recall seeing a ‘confetti send-off’ every time the cruise ship left port. While the days of fluttering farewells are over, confetti still has its place on cruises and cruisers love the color and fun it adds to everyday events.

As a cruise ship event director, entertaining guests is a daily task and confetti brings a level of excitement and allure that’s hard to find elsewhere. Here are some inspiring ideas that will help you incorporate confetti into cruise ship events:

Nightly Shows

Today’s cruise ship shows are as modern and professional as Broadway productions – so much so that many of them are Broadway productions! Comedy shows, top musical acts, and artistic circus-style performances are also common in the top cruise ship lineups.

Well if the goal is to give cruisers a taste of real theater, then the showmanship must continue from beginning to end. And the best way to end a nightly show is with an explosion of confetti and streamers. As a performance comes to a climax or a close, shoot off multi-colored tissue confetti from a Continuous Flow ‘Baby’ Gerb Launcher or sleeves of Metallic Streamers from Mega Blaster Launchers. These smaller confetti machines and confetti cannons give you the WOW factor you’re looking for, without taking up too much room on the ship.

Special Events

Announcing a bingo winner? Inaugurating a new ship? Celebrating New Years Eve? Confetti is a brilliant way to dazzle and delight attendees at any special event. It’s less expensive and dangerous than fireworks or sparklers, easy to clean up, and Flutter FETTI’s tissue confetti is biodegradable too. Not to mention, the options for using confetti and streamers are practically endless.

For a big celebration outside the ship (e.g. inaugurating new ship or port), large confetti cannons like 9 Barrel “POD” Remote Control Confetti Launcher can be pre-programmed to shoot a sequence of confetti and streamers that light up the sky and the faces of onlookers. Our products fly up to 85’ high into the air using the 9 Barrel POD!

For a small celebration inside the ship, like the announcement of a bingo or casino winner, shoot die-cut star confetti using our Surprise Box. From the moment you open it, the winner is overcome with a wave of emotion while all the other guests are mesmerized by the onslaught of color. It’s in that moment that everyone feels like a winner!

Farewell Party

Of course, all cruise ship events must come to an end and every cruiser has to say goodbye to his or her new friends, whether other guests or on-board staff. The Farewell Party is also the perfect time to embrace a round of confetti and remind everyone how wonderful the journey has been. It’s especially important after the final speech or thank you is made.

Get as many cruisers involved in the event by handing out 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks. Just remember to inform participants on how and when to use the sticks prior to the big toss so everyone can experience the magic together. Then countdown from 3… 2… 1… and say farewell in the most epic way possible!
