Grandfather's Pocket Watch

Wedding Ring Pillow Alternatives

With wedding themes going rustic romantic, beach breezy and a little country chic, you don’t have to be traditional and use a ring pillow. Think outside the box when it comes to putting the personal touches on your big day. Check out our list below on wedding ring pillow alternatives and complete your unity with a special ring presentation.

Wedding Ring Box

Little wooden boxes make adorable alternatives to traditional wedding ring pillows. Etch them with cute sayings like “With This Ring I Thee Wed” or “We Do”. Have your initials or wedding date printed as a keepsake for your big day.

Something Borrowed

One of the sweetest things you can use to hand over the wedding rings is a little something sentimental and borrowed. Rings can be specially transported down the aisle in something meaningful like your grandfather or father’s pocket watch, a small jewelry box that belonged to a favorite aunt or your grandmother, tied to a vintage cowbell or saucer that you have always admired in a loved one’s house.

Book of Love

Choose a book, and place the rings in a cut out heart in the middle. From the bible to a book you both love as a couple, or something that is a symbol of your love this idea makes for a nice photographic moment.

Something from the Sea

If your wedding is beach or nautical themed tie the rings to a seashell with a ribbon for a gorgeous alternative to a wedding ring pillow.

The Sweet Little Pocket and Sign

Sometimes your ring bearer might be too little to entrust with your precious rings, instead give your little guy a cute entrance with a sign that says something like “Here Comes Your Girl”, and tuck the rings safely in the Best Man’s pocket.

Fall Wedding Color Schemes

Best Fall Wedding Color Schemes

A fall wedding calls for an appropriate color scheme; especially if you want your wedding to look fab instead of drab! Many fall wedding colors can look dirty or depressing if not used properly, and choosing the best one can be difficult for some couples. When deciding on a color scheme couples need to look at when during the fall season their wedding will take place.

Towards the beginning of the fall season the best wedding color schemes include shades of red ranging from as bright as an apple to as dark as burgundy. Other acceptable color schemes for a fall wedding include a combination of green and cream white or marigold and pumpkin orange.

Any respectable fall wedding color scheme includes apple red because it has always been a symbol of the season. It can be used as the most prominent color in a wedding scheme or used simply to serve as an accent color. Any fall color scheme that includes red often includes various shades, which give a wedding a more textured look.

Green and marigold are often used in fall wedding color schemes because they are bright, warm colors that convey the mood of the season. While this is true, it is also true that marigold and green are colors that aren’t overwhelming to look at in large quantities. This is the simplest and most classic color scheme for a fall wedding.

When planning a wedding for the middle of the fall season the best color scheme is a combination of browns and metallic shades. Red can also be used for mid fall weddings because it pairs well with wisteria and sage green. Peach and burgundy are also popular colors for a fall wedding. One of the reasons why these are the preferred colors is that flowers in these colors can easily be acquired. These color schemes give any wedding a touch of class and a traditional feel.

Orange can be used as a base color for a fall wedding scheme when the event is being held at this time period between the beginning of the fall season and the end of it. For a softer feel, many couples choose peach and a color such as cream or sage green for their decorating scheme. Dusty red and pink colors can also be added in.

Combining gold, bronze and copper can also help create the ideal fall color scheme for any wedding. Any one of these colors also works well as an accent color. For couples on a budget that don’t want to have their wedding look like it was designed on a budget, metallic colors are an excellent choice for décor.

A wedding being held towards the end of the fall season calls for darker colors such as chocolate brown. Using cream and mocha colors in addition to chocolate brown is often the best choice in color schemes. Neutral colors and shades can enhance a late fall wedding. When combined with gold, neutral colors can help create an appropriate fall color scheme that will leave wedding guests dazzled by the sophisticated feel they experience throughout the day.
