Wedding Cake Alternatives
Wedding Cakes are becoming less and less common. It’s 2019 and we are all about change! Macarons, cake pops, doughnuts, waffles, cookies and pies are in the running for some of the most delicious wedding desserts. Even the display of the sweet treats are becoming a large part of decor.
Photo Booths pictures are a special keepsake. If you are looking for more of an organic touch, see if your Photo Booth company offers a naturalistic background. There are SO many options organic, floral, balloons, greenery, fairy lights, pallet board, etc.

3. Boho-Chic Themed
Decor: Earthy and inspired by nature. Natural elements of the breathtaking outdoors, floral garlands, dream catchers, feathers, cactus, rustic wood, and wild flowers are a must. Glass bottles, boho rugs, and fairy lights are all great ways to decorate a Bohemian Wedding. You can’t go wrong with using natural materials, as well as vintage furniture which pulls the look together.
Hairstyle: Brides can opt for an updo or downdo… as long as there are waves or braids. Trendy headpieces such as, metallic flowers, gold draping crystals, natural greenery, and lace scream Boho. Get a hair trial with the St. Louis Experts at Belleza Hair and Makeup Salon.

5. Videography & Drone Shots
Not capturing the moment through videography is the biggest single regret couples have post-wedding. There’s nothing like reliving your special day; seeing your Dad walk you down the aisle and hand you off, your Grandpa moon-walk on the dance floor, and watching the celebration unfold, family and friends gathered together to celebrate you — a timeless memory only a gifted videographer can capture. Your night goes so fast. Moments are missed. With video, they aren’t.
For those at a venue with a picturesque view, don’t forget a drone shot. This is the latest and greatest way to capture another perspective of your once-in-a-lifetime day.

6. Neon Lighting
