Show us how you are breaking wedding rules #breakingbridal
Invitations and stationery don't have to follow classic caligraphy rules. Instead, opt for a fun motif or a personalized flow chart documenting the story of how you met.
Instead of a traditional format, why not have guests sit in the round?
Use whatever you like to create a focal area for the ceremony, whether its a stunning view, chandeliers hanging from tree branches, or a shabby-chic mantelpiece decorated with flowers and candles.
The chairs do not have to match! If you feel at home in a rustic, outdoor living room setting, opt for mismatched furniture and rugs instead.
Unconventional Place Cards
In lieu of name cards, why not try a fun and inventive seating chart?
Shed your preconceived notions about DIY. It does not have to mean gold spray paint or endless evenings at home making paper streamers. Find an easy and chic DIY as pictured, using chalk chargers to create personalized place settings.

Unconventional Color Schemes
Just because it's a wedding doesn't mean it has to have a pastel color scheme. Take inspiration from your venue and your favorite color combinations to create your ideal environment.
Who says you even need seats? Blankets or plush floor pillows make great seating for a relaxed picnic wedding, particularly if you have a great view, or a lot of children in attendance.
Cake doesn't have to be a part of the picture. Why not try individual servings of milk and cookies? Or even create an elaborate cheese board like this if you don't have a sweet tooth?
Unconventional Guest Book
Whether you want to spring for an elaborate photobooth or have guests leave well wishes on vintage typewriter stationery, there are a million ways to encourage guests to help you to record the big day.
