Our Favourite Pinterest Ideas for your Wedding

We hope you were able to catch us this morning on CTV Ottawa Morning Live's WeddingWeek"! We had so much fun sharing the best ideas we've seen on Pinterest. We know that just about every bride has a Pinterest account nowadays and at LEAST one inspiration board full of wedding ideas. But all those images can be overwhelming to say the least. So we scoured Pinterest for you and here are the best ideas we found...


Grandmas as Flower Girls: Enough Said!

We think this idea is just too adorable for words. Give your grandmas a more active role in the ceremony by letting them act as young as they feel and be your flower girls for the big day! The look of joy on these two grandmas' faces says it all!


Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses

Not only is this idea great for accommodating your bridesmaids' different body types but it is a great way for each of them to show a little bit of their personality in their role as loyal maid without disturbing the vision of your wedding. It can be up to you how different or similar the different dresses are - maybe a long dress for the Maid of Honour  or a funky sparkly number for your Junior Bridesmaid. The options are endless and letting your maids choose a dress that is uniquely them will make them feel fabulous as they stand by your side as you say your vows on your wedding day.

Library Inspired Seating Cards

There are so many fun and unique ways to display your seating cards so guests can find their tables but we thought this one was super fun! Remember the days of the Dewey decimal system, when you had to search for your library books by opening wooden drawers and sorting through weathered index cards? Why not bring that nostalgia back to your wedding day? We love this super cute set-up for your guests' seating cards - alphabetized and organized!








Polaroid Memories

Another great twist on seating cards! Your guests have to find their seating card but must replace it with a Polaroid photo of themselves. Not only is it fun for your guests but you will be left with a bunch of great photos and memories of all your beloved wedding guests! Great for a wedding scrapbook or guest book!

Hashtag your Wedding!

Social media is a huge part of our lives so why not incorporate it into your wedding? Post signs throughout your venue with your wedding hashtag - like #thejoneswedding or #amy&mike2013 - so that you can see what people are talking about! Any photo that gets posted on Instagram or tweet that goes up on Twitter gets seen by the wedding party!

A Birthday Guest Book

Like anything that comes from Martha Stewart, we think this is a fantastic idea. Instead of a traditional guest book, have a calendar where your guests can find their birthdays and sign their name. Not only will you have a guest book that you will look at for the next year, you've collected all your guests' birthdays so you can celebrate with them and keep the information for years to come!

Keep the Kids Busy at Dinner

Are you worried about how to keep the kids entertained at your reception? Worry no more. Give each kid a package of drawing supplies and a blank card and ask them to create a special card for the bride and groom. This way, the kids are happy drawing and the bride and groom get an adorable message straight from the hearts of their youngest guests.

Honour your Relationship Milestones

Pinned from
Looking for a creative way to number your reception tables? Use a milestone or interesting fact about your relationship for each one. Some examples? Table 7: The numbers of years we dated before getting engaged. Table 3: We had our first kiss on our third date. Table 14: We were born 14 months apart. Table 27: The number of bridesmaids dresses the bride wore before getting married herself! It's a great way for your guests to learn fun facts about you as a couple.

What to do with your Wedding Cards

Trying to figure out what to do with all the cards you for on your wedding day? Here's a simple solution, no matter what your arts and crafts skills are! Punch holes in the cards and bind them together using metal hoops or string. You'll end up with an album of cards that won't be misplaced and that you can flip through whenever you want.
