Today I Love Silhouettes (In Action)

1 April 2009

Even better than incorporating silhouettes into your paper suite {in my opinion} is incorporating them into your wedding day. Here are some of my favorite ways to do so.

Instead of a photo booth, hire a silhouette artist for cocktail hour entertainment.

Bonus? The completed works of art make fabulous reception decor strung on a line…

or hanging in a doorway.

Silhouettes look great in fresh, bright colors…

{escort cards and favor boxes}

{out-of-town guest bags and matchbooks for sparkler exit}

… as in the above wedding from Martha.

You could use them on your bar menu, like Mrs. Cupcake, to give some variety to your paper suite:

Silhouettes can accompany coffee and tea at the end of the night.

They can be classic and elegant, as in these table numbers…

… or rustic and casual, as in this homemade gift wrap and these ceremony programs.

A collection of family silhouettes can adorn an entryway table, a guestbook signing station, a gift drop-off area…

{via Country Living}

… or a cake table.

They can be a simple accent on a menu.

Or they can completely define your celebration, as in Karrie and Brian’s fabulous wedding.

Silhouettes were used in their save the dates and invitations,

their escort cards,

their programs,

and even their cookies!

Whew! If you can believe it, I’ve got even more silhouette inspiration for you tomorrow…
