10 Ring Pillow Alternatives

Happy greetings to all Lots of Love Readers! When you plan weddings, you are always inclined to go with traditional designs and details because they have worked pretty much for everyone. However, if you want your wedding to be something that people will remember for a very long time, you can fill with elements that will separate it from the rest. For instance, the ring pillow. Also known as the wedding ring cushion. It is traditionally a small pillow that is used to carry the rings during Western weddings. You can add a personal touch by letting your ringbearer carry the rings on something out of the ordinary. 

Here are 10 ring pillow alternatives worth considering.

Boxed up. Something you can use even after the wedding. 
So you won't miss it, you can label which one is for the Mr. and the Mrs.

Especially delivered by your favorite bear. 

Something classy and unexpected. The rings hidden on a cane. 

Keeping it safe inside a safe guarded by your most trusted ring bearer.

Showcased in a vintage jewelry box.

Give new life to an old book by transforming it into a ring holder. 
 Something that will go perfectly well on a beach wedding: Rings placed on a shell. 

Something creative, a lotus origami with the rings in the middle. 

Simply colorful. Pin the rings on a flower of your wedding's motif.

Engraved heart bearing the rings.

Lots of Love,

Wedding Details: Ring Bearers

Happy Greeting to all our Lots of Love Readers!

When planning a wedding, getting your family and friends involved in the ceremony or the reception gives it a personal touch. You can always find something for everyone to do on your wedding day. Your besties can of course serve as your bridesmaids and maid of honor. The little girls as flower girls. And those cute nephews, godsons or even your kids can play the important role of ring bearer at your wedding. But what exactly do ring bearers do? As the name suggests, these cute little guys are tasked to carry a pillow that holds the rings of the bride and the groom. Ring bearers are usually boys from age 4 to 8. Although there is no hard and fast rule about it, getting someone who can walk down the aisle without much fuss would really be very much welcomed. 

Here are some ways you can spruce up your little helper's participation at your wedding:

Pay homage to Scottish tradition by getting him to wear a kilt.

Be one of the boys. Get him to wear a cool pair of shades.

Something comfy - suspenders, shorts and loafers.

Let him be your personal superhero for the day

A fairy tale wedding filled with your well-loved characters.

Arrive in style. Your ring bearer will definitely enjoy driving to the altar on his personal ride.

Wheeled in. Let him ride on a wagon to the alter during the ceremony.

Instead of marching before the flower girls, getting them to walk the aisle together would be more fun.

Carry a sign. Ain't this the cutest?

Alternately, you can get him to bring a big balloon announcing the bride's entrance.

Add a quirky touch to his attire with the help of an awesome cartoon character boutonniere.

And don't forget to pack some art stuff  for him to show your appreciate for his help at the wedding.

You can also get him to do other chores like distribute lollipops to welcome guests at the reception.

Brotherly duties. You can get an older sibling to accompany your little bearer as he walks down the aisle.

 Looking dapper in a hat.

Lots of Love,

Hello Kitty Wedding Ideas

Charming greetings to all our Lots of Love Readers!

Sometimes, when you are planning a special celebration like a wedding, you seek inspiration in things that have made a mark in your life. For some, it can be a movie or a trinket from your past. For others, it can be a memorabilia or a favorite childhood character like Hello Kitty. 

This adorable kitty has won the hearts of many. Hello Kitty is a fictional character produced by Sanrio,  Japan in 1975 and was brought to the United States a year after. Little girls love Hello Kitty and collect Hello Kitty merchandise from dolls, to stationery, mugs and all other stuff. Because of its fan base, the company created theme parks in Japan dedicated to everything Hello Kitty.

Last year there has been a controversy involving Hello Kitty saying that Hello Kitty is a lady and not a cat. It  caused great shock and horror to many netizens. But eventually, it panned out after some explanation made by its creators. Despite that, Hello Kitty lovers still remained loyal to the character that they have come to love through the years. 

Here are some Hello Kitty stuff that were featured in several Hello Kitty themed weddings:

As a tribute to your favorite fictional character, you can have a Hello Kitty bridal shower filled with everything cute and pink. 
 Adorable Hello Kitty floral bouquet

Adorn the bridal car with Hello Kitty dolls.

A cute surprise that can be revealed at the wedding reception - Hello Kitty wedding garter.
You can even have Hello Kitty mascots to escort the newlyweds to the wedding reception
Fun-filled wedding reception backdrop
Create a corner that showcase some pictures of the couple.

Decorate tables with loose petals arranged in Hello Kitty's signature pink bow. 

For the rehearsal dinner, you can decorate the tables with everything Hello Kitty, from place mats, place cards and napkins. 

The wedding will not be complete without a Hello Kitty themed cake. 
Instead of the usual multi-layer cake, you can decorate it with sugar cookies which you can share with everyone at the wedding reception. 

Serve pink cocktail drinks in mason jars decorated with Hello Kitty pink bows. 

Thank you gift for your bridesmaid and maid of honor - Hello Kitty earrings.

For the mother and mother-in-law, a special gift like a Hello Kitty tea set.
