That's right, the theme of a wedding can be taken to new settings and locations. We suggest art galleries, botanical gardens, raw warehouses, museums or the not-so-new barn atmosphere. Having your event at a unique venue contributes to the mood, the celebration, your overall purpose for gathering. Here we go with that white, faux fir complimenting white leather furniture and fur ottomans, large unique lanterns, street lamps and custom benches with pillows. Dividing areas can include one with a fire pit, another with playing music while making other guest interaction hot spots will create memories to last a lifetime. #weddingswithattitude #thawyourbuns weddings

Customized Chair & Bouquet Wraps
With just a piece of wire and a few basic tools, create your own simple wire jewelry in no time at all. It easier than you think! In just five minutes, you can create chair markers, chic spiral bracelets and bouquet wraps. Make your own 5-minute wire bracelet. Materials:
* 16-gauge wire or thicker (your choice of metal)
* Steel block or other very hard surface
* Needle-nose pliers
* Wire cutters
Step 1: Cut a 12" piece of wire. Grab one end of the wire with your needle-nose pliers, begin curling it around in a spiral.
Step 2: Once the spiral is as big as you'd like it to be, use your pliers to bend an angle into the wire so you can begin to shape the bracelet part.
Step 3: Place your wire onto your block and hammer it flat. This creates a textured, finished look.
Step 4: Wrap the wire around your wrist for sizing. Cut off excess, then use your pliers to form a loop/hook on the end. Make sure not to close it all the way because hooking it into the spiral is how you'll fasten the bracelet onto your wrist
Step 5: Gently shape the bangle, wrap or bracelet into a circle or oval. If you happen to have bracelet bending pliers, those are great to use for this step.
