I saw this photo the other day and I literally had an “Aha” moment (if such things can be attributed to things like to wedding photographs) of “WHY have we not been doing this!” This was the photo (from Green Wedding shoes)
I think I was kicking myself because for years we have been decorating ceremony spaces with Aisle Markers, which never show up in photos really and are often so ‘meh’ in execution when all this time we had been overlooking a great opportunity for a bit of excitement in the back! It was another reminder (here is where the Aha moment comes in) that no matter how innovative or open we think we are, we must be diligent at not just doing things because we have “always done them that way”. So, basically, seeing rear row ceremony decor threw me into an existential life crisis. Go figure.
Anyway, it also solves the dilemma of no one wanting to sit in the back… because people always want to sit in the fancy, decorated seats. So, here is to getting a bit Kim Kardashian with our ceremony decor and celebrating our rears!!
Here are some other ideas for celebrating being in the back! I love this garland. It shows how effective rear row decor can be in a photo! (via Bridal Guide)
Loved these paper garlands! So very sweet. Via I Love SW
Talk about having fun in the cheap seats!!! And they mirrored their canopy decor. Love this. Via Ruffled.
So, hopefully, this will get you thinking about the oft-neglected last row. Just because they arrived a little late, doesn’t mean their chairs can’t be fancy
And, just because it’s Friday and it’s actually hilarious (and I don’t find these things that hilarious) here is Randi Fanoli and the editorial team at TheKnot doing the Harlem Shake. It’s really a TGIF
