Brides look forward to their last night out as a single lady before their big day. That’s why the maid of honor and bridesmaids do the honor of hosting. Not only should they decide on a date that is not the night before the wedding, (unless they want to remake the Hangover), but also pick a theme that suits the bride’s style. A typical bash drags the bride from bar to bar and makes her blush at the sight of any man. However, there are endless ways to celebrate, reminisce and of course, laugh. Start planning with some of these low-key ideas if you need help!

Even though having a flower girl or ring bearer is optional, including one of your favorite little ones is always a nice way to make them feel a part of your special day. Traditionally, their main job was to make it down the aisle, scatter floral petals or carry the rings on a pillow, but nowadays, brides are thinking beyond the petals and the pillows and letting them make their own grand entrance. Depending on your theme, here are seven alternative items your flower girl or ring bearer could carry (or walk) down the aisle with:
1. Bird’s Nest
Perfect for any garden wedding, have you flower girl carry the rings in an artificial bird’s nest.

Remember, not only do you want your color scheme to set the vibe for your wedding but also complement the venue. Here are our favorite color scheme combinations to inspire you:
