Impress your guests with these extravagant (and easy!) wedding upgrades...
Your big day is just that—big. Wanting it to live up to that moniker can be tricky, but with a few easy and small touches, your wedding day can go from beautiful to extravagant, without going over budget. From specialty cocktails and sparkling wine favors to beautiful centerpieces and luxury gifts, these six ideas will give your special weekend that something extra.
Serve a Signature Rehearsal Dinner Cocktail
[post_ads]There’s no hard and fast rule that says signature cocktails are only for the wedding day. Your celebration is a whole weekend long, after all. Save the his-and-hers brews for the big night, but include one magical concoction at the rehearsal dinner. Add a little glimmer to the night with the Starry Night cocktail: two parts chilled Rosa Regale and one part Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka. Trust us—your guests will be double fisting.
Add Slippers to that Bridesmaid Gift
You’ve already bought the cute floral robe, but go the extra mile to make your bridesmaids comfortable while they’re getting ready with a cozy pair of spa slippers. Not only will they keep your ‘maids feeling luxurious the morning of, but these slippers can also be worn during your group pedicures, and post-wedding celebration too! Their feet will need a rest after all that dancing, after all.
Go Big, Like, Magnum Big
Here’s a low-cost way to make a big impression on your guests. You’ll never feel more luxe than popping a magnum-sized bottle of sparkling rose at your wedding. This big-sized bottle won’t just make for an extravagant pour—serve Rosa Regale instead of traditional champagne for toasts!—but a bigger bottle also goes a longer way into the night. We think that’s a two-for-one: High style impact, extra cost savings. Can’t beat it!
Add an Amazing Backdrop
Skip the photo booth and opt for a stunner of a backdrop that your guests will love to feature in the back of their selfies and Snaps. Flower walls—be them fully covered or hanging blooms—are the perfect way to add elegance to your wedding day. If you can, have your florist make it portable, so it can serve as the backdrop to your ceremony, and a photo-stop during the reception. Opt for lower-priced blooms in all white (guests will never know!) for an affordable option.
Give Mini Bottles for Favors
Stumped on what to send your guests home with? How about something they can use to continue the party at home! Set a table with plastic glasses filled with ice, then pop mini bottles of sparkling Rosa Regale, and a cute paper straw, in each cup. Guests can grab these miniature “ice buckets” as they leave and choose to drink it on their way out, or save it for home. Either way, it’s chilled and ready to go.
Add Some Sparkle If your venue allows it, a wash of lit candles can go a long way in taking your wedding over the top. From adding sparkle to your centerpieces to filling blank spaces, candles in beautiful mercury glass, crystal holders, or floating in water will add the perfect soft glow to your day. Think staggering heights and even hanging pieces for a real wow-factor.
