The prime wedding conference in America has just been held and the crew from The Knot shared 17 “steal-worthy” ideas they think are worth stealing for your wedding.

So I’ve stolen some of their best ideas for this post, but make sure you check out their full list at theknot.com! Amd if you like this list, here’s one from a wedding summit six months ago.

You can print just about anything on napkins, including your menu! Add your monogram or logo, and think of a way to creatively display them. 

All of the style!

This is why you want to hire a stylist. You should chat to Amey at Pack a Perfect Party.

Share the signature cocktail recipe (also, have a signature cocktail!)

What better way to let guests know what’s in your signature cocktail than printing it out?

Hiring entertainment groups

When it was time for the 22-piece orchestra to take a break, a Boys II Men-inspired dance group jumped up on stage and surprised everyone with an amazing act. Adding an extra act ensures the party never loses its momentum.

Have a station set up for the kids to play and eat cookies like these from Elenis. Or, order thank-you cookies to send with guests on their way out the door. A super cute way to thank guests is to write your thank-you notes on edible cookies like these from Elenis.

Create food bars from YOUR favourite food

Wow wedding bags

Welcome bags aren’t a new idea, but personalizing them with your wedding colors and creating separate bags for men and women is.
