Wave these wedding yay flags in a madcap fashion to drum up ALL the excitement
We’ve long been fans of waving around wedding celebration flags and mini wedding yay flags at ceremonies. You can DIY them, buy them in bulk, get them customized to your favorite colors and sayings, and wave them to the sky. Bust out your “hell yeahs,” “the cake is a lie,” or the catchphrase of your choice and get to celebrating! Here are our favorite ways to wave wildly (with loads you can buy for your own wedding)…
Add a sweet note to your ceremony ribbon wands
If you’ll be rocking the ribbon wands at your ceremony (tutorial here!), you may want to see what Sarah and Austin did with theirs. They slipped on some simple little notes in their Star Trek meets Star Wars theme! Here’s what they said..
Ann & Eric’s Detroit lovefest with old timey revelry
These two love them some old timey fun and brought it ALL to their wedding in the bride’s hometown of Detroit. She also totally schooled her Chicago pals in all things awesome in Detroit: the Henry Ford museum complex, awesome food (including Coney dogs!), and goodie bags filled with local snacks and beers. Get on your penny-farthing and come take a peek!
Betsy & Tiffany’s queer Southern glitter circus wedding
Red and blue and DIY all over — these two ladies know how to throw a stylish and entertaining wedding! They included all of their talented community — performers and bakers alike — and their tribute to what their specific type of marriage means to them is tear-inducing and spot-on. And you MUST see one of the bride’s mom’s awesome, newly acquired aerialist skills! She’s one bad-ass mother.
Megan & Joe’s relaxed daytime wedding with a hug line
This wedding is all about learning experiences: you don’t need fancy “yay” flags when simple ones bring as much fun, dads are sometimes more mushy-gushy than they let on (see the flashing baby photos for proof!), and sometimes a daytime wedding with fabulous food (drooool potatoes) is totally the way to go. Plus: learn what the hell a “hug line” is and how you can get one, too!
Katherine & James’ barefoot eco-friendly forest wedding
This week we’re letting our hair down and getting back to nature in the wild, wild outdoors! Today we’ve got a barefoot couple in the forests of Piccadilly with rainbows, a teepee, and one very fun Kombi. They managed to make it all happen while compromising with a religious family, coaxing a van into carrying a clown car-load, and dealing with a very naughty bird at the ceremony.
