Want to wow your guests while creating a beautiful wedding keepsake?  Hire a live wedding painter!

There are groups of artists who will actually come and paint your wedding ceremony or reception while it is going on.  At the end of the event you will have a fabulous new and unique piece of art.  Some artists will even do smaller quick paintings of just the first dance, or the flower girl or the brides bouquet.

This would be a stellar and much talked about addition to any wedding or event.

Have you ever attended a wedding ceremony or reception where there was a painter?

Guests could receive a vintage postcard save the date followed by invitations created to look like passports. Vintage postcards could also be signed and bound to create a guest book. Maps could be repurposed throughout the event including being made into garland,  cufflinks, flowers for bouquets, fun pinwheels for centerpieces, cupcake toppers and to wrap frames that could hold table numbers. A vintage suitcase would be the perfect way to present the seating chart.

The South is known for its delicious honey like Tupelo and Orange Blossom to name a few.  Here are a few sweet ideas for a honeybee inspired wedding.

How perfect are these invitations?  And we love the bee brooch on this bouquet!

We would fill these honeycomb ceramic vases with bright yellow flowers and use them as centerpieces.  You could serve cakes made in honeycomb molds as well! The yellow and black dresses from Eshakti would be great  for bridesmaids.

These little gold bee studs are so adorable and could be worn by both the bride and her bridesmaids.  We would wear them long after the wedding too!

This bee cutout place card is so creative in the way it is displayed perched on a wine glass. And of course you would have to have honey for favors!
