Peonies are a popular filller flower in mixed bouquets or alone. Peonies are a symbol of luxury and indulgence. They range in color from pure white through baby pinks and palest peaches to clear deep pink and darkest rich maroon. Peonies can also be found in yellow, but these are incredibly rare.
Peonies are considered a luscious symbol of romance and are thought to be a good omen for happy, prosperous unions. They are available May-July.

I love this idea of a graffiti wall (or canvas). What an awesome piece of art to display in your home. Just make sure your venue will let you use spray paint!
Crystal etching is something new that I'm seeing start to pop up everywhere. Purchase a crystal etching pen and have guests pen their well wishes onto a crystal bowl or vase that you can reuse forever.
I love this idea of having your guests sign the pieces to a Jenga game. Not only will you enjoy playing the game with your hubby and friends, you'll be able to see all of these great messages everytime you play.

It may seem like a small detail to some, but a wedding without wedding cake would be noticed by all. History tells us that the idea of wedding cake comes from the Roman Empire, when the groom would break bread over the bride’s head to bring good fortune.
There are so many traditions, superstitions and symbolism attached to wedding cakes over the centuries and they have brought us to where we are today. Some cultures said the cake would bring luck, prosperity or even fertility. In some eras, depending on who cut it and who served it, it was said to show the groom’s dominance over the bride. We’ve all seen the modern-day wedding cake where the bride and groom feed each other one bite of cake and then kiss. I think we also all dread any cake in face antics.
Having been to hundreds of weddings over the years, we have seen some beautiful wedding cakes. Some with such painstaking detail, you almost didn’t want to see it eaten. We’ve also seen some of the most unique cake toppers you can imagine.
