The Latest in Spring Weddings for Trendy Millennials

Tis the season - that's right, wedding season! Spring calls for warm weather, the first weddings of the season, and new & exciting trends to play with when planning your wedding. We're talking off-the-shoulder dresses, copper tones, and succulents. From color styles and food walls, to different social media features - we've got you covered! 

Be bold.

Spring is all about leaving the darks and muted neutrals behind, and bringing out the vibrant colors. Adding some liveliness to your wedding theme by adding a bright fucshia or a vivid green to the mix.

Geometrics are in.

Sleek. Modern. Geometric. Do any of these words describe your personality? Kick that fairytale wedding aside and step up your modern flavor by adding some geometric designs throughout your wedding. Everything from cakes and flowers, to menus and wall decorations - the possibilities are endless.

Punny Wedding Favors

A wedding is a day for celebration & laughter, and the best way to say goodbye to your guests is to send them off laughing with a clever party favor. Because lets be honest, they’ll be cradling their head in the morning, cursing the open bar anyways - so why not do them a favor.

Social Media Coordinator (that's right!)

It’s a shame when someone has to miss out on your wedding. And who has time to constantly be posting photos on Instagram? A Social Media Coordinator posts real-time photos & makes sure that your loved ones don’t miss out on your big day! Genius, right?

Donut Station

Believe it or not, donut walls are the hottest wedding trend right now. Because 1. Who doesn’t love donuts, and 2. Skip the fancy, expensive catering!

Snapchat Geofilters

Take your wedding to the next level with your own personalized Snapchat geofilter. Think about it: most guests will be snapping away anyways, so why not let them play with a filter designed by the bride & groom themselves?

Whisky Bar

Calling all grooms (and brides, too)! Add a little rustic flavor to your wedding with a classic whiskey bar. Just make sure to have a traditional bar as well for the non-whiskey drinkers.

Thank goodness for @wildturkey 🥃 Happy Friday, loves! 😘 #womenandwhiskies

9 Ways To Use Your My Cinema Lightbox At Your Wedding

9 Ways To Use Your My Cinema Lightbox At Your Wedding

Ahhhh weddings! A time for confetti, cake and, of course, true love. 

Once you've said YES to the man you're going to marry, the fun has only just begun, because girl, now you've got a wedding to plan! This is your big day and so you're going to want to pull out all the stops to make it one to remember. You need to pick a perfect venue, a menu that will make everyone happy, and you can't forget the dress that makes you feel like a million dollars. You want it all to be beautiful, magical and romantic and--you want it to be unique! (You can't have it falling short to your sister-in-laws nuptials from the year before.) 

Here are 9 fun ways to use your My Cinema Lightbox on or leading up to your big day that will surprise and delight all your guests! 

In Your Invitations

Customize your invitations by inserting a photo of your own, and use your My Cinema Lightbox to create this memorable imagery. We suggest posing your lightbox with a few key items, or a fitting backdrop of your choice and trying messages like YOU'RE INVITED or BE THERE OR BE SQUARE. 

At Your Bridal Shower

This event is all about the ladies and that usually means the prettiest details are not to be missed. So as you're serving up glasses of pink champagne with frozen raspberries and chocolate covered strawberries on a stick to guests with perfectly gift-wrapped bags of tissue paper and lingerie, put up your My Cinema Lightbox with a cute message like HAPPY GIRLS ARE THE PRETTIEST or BRIDE TO BE.

At The Ceremony

There are going to be oodles of photos of you two and your wedding party up at the alter, gazing lovingly into each other's eyes, reciting your vows. Why not position your My Cinema Lightbox in view just in front, behind or to the side with something to mark the moment like: AUGUST 9, 2016 or TILL DEATH DO US PART.

During Your Photo Session

Photographer's love these things because they easily add a little flair to their already spectacular pictures, and you get to personalize it any way you like to add some personality or romance or even humour to your shots. Try something like JUST MARRIED or MR & MRS. Toronto Photographer Roberto Lissia captured this perfect shot using "YOU & ME FOREVER".

At The Reception Entrance

We recommend getting the XL Cinema Lightbox for this one, and as your guests walk toward the reception hall, catch their eye and make them feel welcome with a message like:  or TIME TO GET THE PARTY STARTED.

At The Head Table

Much like the alter, this is going to be a hot spot for photos and having a favorite quote or customizable caption of some kind on the whole scene might be kind of unique. You could try YOU & ME, FOREVER PLEASE or ALL BECAUSE TWO PEOPLE FELL IN LOVE. 

At The Cake Table

The Mini Cinema Lightbox may be all you need here, but bring a little attention to the cake table with a cute message like IS IT TIME TO CUT THE CAKE YET? or I LOVE YOU LIKE A FAT KID LOVES CAKE.

In The Restroom

Okay wait--hear us out. You know how at some weddings people have started leaving little amenities baskets in the restrooms with extra bobby pins, stain remover, hairspray, breath freshener, etc. What if you added a little message in there too to up your restroom game like HELP YOURSELF or A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED?

At The Bar

Not that most people need help finding this corner of the room, but still, a bar is a bar is a bar... until you add some unique touches! And this is a great place to add humour with messages like IT'S GIN O'CLOCK or SHAKEN NOT STIRRED. 

Now that you've got some ideas, back to planning for you! You still need to decide on your guest favours and pick the flowers. Get to it!
