College-Themed Weddings

When selecting a wedding theme there are many different options for brides to choose from, but what if you want to incorporate college pride into your special day? With the help of Pinterest, we are going to share some of our favorite ways to accomplish that!

Showing school spirit on your wedding day can be as simple as having your school’s logo or mascot  on some delicious treats! We love this cute, yet simple idea to add some college spirit to your big day.

Another great way to show your university pride is including small details, such as this customizable cake topper!

If you are a sports fan we have just the ticket for you, literally! This bride and groom replicated their invitation to look like an admission ticket to the game, what a clever idea!

For brides who may want a more understated way of representing their alma maters, using their school colors as the color scheme is a great solution. This wedding  matched their school colors with  flowers and in table decor for an elegant and tasteful look.

Wedding planning is all about the details and personal touches so by incorporating your school spirit you give your guests a better opportunity to get to know you even better!

Unique Lighting Ideas for Weddings

When it comes to planning a wedding, there are so many options for the bride and groom to choose from. One area of planning that has been trending with new unique ideas is that of event lighting design. Whether you’re planning an outdoor affair or a wedding inside, we at the Mackey House want to share with you some of their favorites:

If you’re getting married outside and there are trees surrounding you, create a romantic atmosphere by wrapping strands of clear lights around the trunks of the tree towards the top. This is sure to look great in pictures and help capture the magical moment on your big day.

Wicker is also trending this wedding season and in this example, the strands of lights are wrapped around and through the wicker ball, and then are hung above the reception area from the trees. We just love how this creates such a romantic setting.

We also love a good chandelier as much as the next person!  Whether you incorporate them in your backdrop during the ceremony or use them for the reception, this is a great way to bring indoor elements outside! Chandeliers create a classy and romantic vibe that guests are sure to love.

For the brides who want to have an edgy design for their wedding, industrial lighting may be just the thing for you. This picture illustrates how the industrial lights hanging from the ceiling surrounded by brick create a modern atmosphere.

Whether you want an outdoor wedding or something inside, lighting design can really create the atmosphere you want on your special day. With so many different options available we hope the ones we have shared with you have inspired you while planning!
