Freeze dry the bouquet! Love love love this idea for my wedding. Even if I don't freeze dry the actual bouquet.I love the shadow box and I plan on having a few charms hanging around it so I can put those in the shadow box instead!
Having empty chairs across from the bride and groom is a Scandinavian tradition. Guests are invited to come and chat with the bride and groom. This way the newlyweds can actually sit and enjoy the meal, and the guests can say hello.
