Under the Sea

The Idea: For a recent beach-theme seaside wedding, Greenwich-based event planner Jody Brefere decided to think outside the box for one couple's escort cards. Real seashells were glue-gunned together to securely hold the cards, and then set inside a box filled with sand. "When it comes to place cards, I always try to be creative," says Jody. "You can look to the theme or season of your wedding for inspiration."

Why We Love It: New England has so many seasonal themes—incorporating even the tiniest details can really add richness to your wedding and make a big splash.
