Can I just say that I am surprised by Etsy just about every single day? They are just growing by leaps and bounds. More and more celebrities are not just shopping but selling on Etsy.

Today, I saw that Eddie Ross is now an Etsian. I just love this guy. You may have seen him on Martha or on Top Design. I love his decorating style and all of his ideas. If you don’t know of him yet, do yourself a favor and check his blog full of daily tips. He also has a cute housewares shop on Etsy. Every piece is under $100.

If you have always been the life of the party, and the last one to leave at the end of the night, saying goodbye to your guests at the end of your own wedding might prove to be quite difficult. To aid you in that departure, why not turn your wedding around and follow your reception with your ceremony?

Turning the tables on what is seen as the traditional schedule for a wedding, and reversing the order of your reception and ceremony means that the party can last as long as your bachelor days do.

To make this unique scheduling format work for you, invite your guests to a wedding-styled party, where you, your future husband and all of your attendants greet them at the door in typical receiving line splendor.

Following this meet and greet you can sit down with your guests for a relaxing “last meal” followed by the standard toasts and well-wishes.

When the dancing portion of your wedding gets underway, you can join in on all of the fun, and enjoy the party that is being held in your honor. As the evening or afternoon soiree begins to wind down, instruct your DJ or Master of Ceremonies to play one last song, where you and your groom can share one “last dance” before becoming husband and wife.

As the music winds down, the anticipation winds up, and the future bride and future groom lead their guests to their ceremony location where by the powers invested they become at last, husband and wife, ready to make their grand exit upon completion of the ceremony, straight to their honeymoon destination.

While this unorthodox approach might be too much for some to handle, its advantages include taking the worry and stress of the day away, by having some fun first before the serious part gets underway and also allows guests to focus in on the ceremony at hand and not at the party afterwards.

Once married, life has a tendency to settle into a mundane routine, why not shake things up a bit while you have the chance and turn your wedding upside down for a topsy turvy good time.
