Silhouette Themed Wedding

So, believe it or not, Etsy, Pinterest and BHLDN did not exist when I got married. I know, its hard to think of a world without these luxuries. However, I’ve always thought the idea of a silhouette themed wedding would be really special, and with the advent of all these cool wedding resources …. I’ve come up with some ideas for this theme from pre-wedding ideas to post wedding thank you notes.

Pre-Wedding Ideas:

Printable Engagement Party Invite / Proposal Silhouette - Blue text

Engagement Party Invite with Proposal Silhouette. What a fun way to kick off the whole theme – and no one needs to know its the theme yet. You can surprise them along the way.

Now if only the bride and groom     silhouettes were dancing and drinking!

This is a cute “Save the Date” especially if the couple have been together for a long time!

Bridal Shower Game

You can even incorporate the wedding theme into a Bridal/Couple Shower Game!

Wedding Invitations: We love the idea of a traditional one with just the bride’s silhouette on the invitation and her parents inviting the guests to the wedding. However, there are many silhouette wedding invite ideas with the couple on them that are creative and fun!

Silhouettes are so neat, in my opinion. I'm picturing one of each of you, facing each other, maybe as a motif carried throughout your decor: from the return address on the invites to your website to the programs, maybe on the menus or something too. Very shabby chic/vintage feeling. Silhouette Wedding Chivari Chair Decor Silhouette Chair Signs

Decorate chairbacks at your wedding with silhouette chair signs!  The signs can be re-used after the wedding as home decor.   Photo by Olivia Smartt, signs by Crafted By Kerstin.

Download these awesome signs to help guests navigate your venue

We like the silhouette signs to help navigate guests to the wedding or can be used at the wedding itself. Think bride and groom seating signs, bathroom door signs – you could even do a silhouette of a cake for the dessert area and one of a book for the guest book table.The ones above are available on Martha Stewart – click on the picture to be taken to her site.

There are so many creative ways to add some silhouette fun to the wedding menus including using stamps of serving ware or of food!

like the clean layout here - what if instead of flatware up top, we had a black silhouette of a bernese mtn/large dog leaning over bowl - too much/crazy dog lady? menu "cocotte en papier" à l'effigie des mariés (silhouettes)
