Every bride wants her wedding to be extra special and memorable. You are undoubtedly feeling the same way if you are in the process of planning your big day. If that is the case and you haven’t come up with that something special that will make your day stand out, then consider these fun and unexpected add-ons.
If you love wildlife and your pets, then you are going to adore these ideas for welcoming animals at your wedding. While some places allow you to lease exotic species for the day, it will be much easier to work these common wedding guests into your big day.
RSVP cards have got to be one of the biggest frustrations of wedding planning. You can make all of the arrangements, but if you don’t have a good headcount, you won’t have any idea how much of everything you will need. The number of tables, chairs, plates, cups, and favors, for instance, needed can be impacted. And, of course, there is the concern about catering and cake ordering.
The debate about whether or not kids should be invited to your wedding is an ongoing and often fierce one. It doesn’t really matter though. All that does matter is that you do what you want with your day. If you want the kids to attend, then invite them. You can ensure that they have a great time, too, with a few easy “quiet fun” ideas.

Wedding planning is often something that women look forward to immensely. That is, until they realize that there are more ideas that just those in their own heads. Having to include the thoughts of her mother, soon-to-be mother-in-law and future husband can make the planning more of a challenge that she would have expected.

If you have found that wedding planning is not all that you imagined it to be, then consider how celebrating small achievements can make the process much more enjoyable.
If you are getting married, or just dreaming about it, you have likely looked at the many rings available to brides-to-be. There are certainly many gorgeous examples on the market today, but if you are seriously shopping, you may want to consider some of these jewelry trends as you choose your own.
