Wedding Wednesday: A Love Grows in Brooklyn...

A wedding full of character for the alternative bride.

When planning a wedding, one of the best details to include is elements about the couple that make your wedding unique and different from other weddings, as they make you a unique bride and groom apart from others. Whether it is the story of how you meet, where you both went to college, your favorite foods, or where you live now, including aspects of your relationship can make for an intimate reception that has all guests feeling the love.

Brooklyn brides know how to take industrial spaces or simple parks and turn them into extraordinary events. Living in a historic area full of culture and creativity, they find their individuality in the details and can portray them wonderfully in their wedding décor and wedding invitations. Here is a wedding inspiration board for a couple that starts their story of love in Brooklyn, NY.

Pick a venue that is representative of your relationship. Whether it was your favorite music hall, favorite park, or favorite restaurant, guests will love getting a feel for what you two enjoy as a couple. Adding creative details to your wedding make the event truly special. Customizing wedding accents like venue lighting, table settings, and floral arrangements give an intimate feel to your event, especially in large spaces. Brooklyn Wedding at the Wythe Hotel

Unique cake toppers can also add design appeal to simpler cakes, which is great for brides on a budget. Pick up some of your favorite pastries and desserts from local Brooklyn bakeries and display them on a dessert table for guests to enjoy. Add small toppers to make the table tie in with the wedding theme. Burlap Banner Cake Topper from AnnKayDesign
