One of the busiest but endearing and special moments is the wedding. You have to go and run from one place to another just to get whatever is needed for the event. Everything your wallet from cash to credit cards wouldn’t stop coming out. Although there are people, not to mention the person you are going to marry with, are there to support and help you to make sure the wedding is going to be successful. If there is one thing that would really make you feel busy is the decorations. There are just so many things to use and decorate starting at the ceremony and the reception. One of them, which is also the most common and traditional decorations, are bells and doves. So, stay with me and let’s talk about these two particular decorations.

Regardless of the wedding theme, bells are important decorations. A pair of doves is another thing to see on a wedding. Let’s first discuss doves before bells.
Live Dove Birds

It is part of the wedding tradition for a bride and a groom to release a pair of dove during their reception. These doves have to be one male and one female. They symbolize purity for their unfading white color and love for being comfortable together. The release, which is a ceremonial part, represents happiness and having each other for a lifetime.
There are also dove models that can be used as decorations for weddings. It would be weird to have real ones hanging from one post to another. Your wedding is not a bird show anyway. What this means is that doves can be in figurines and paper which are much easier to display anywhere. This kind of decoration is a do-it-yourself material. You can be creative by making your own doves that may be hanged in the ceiling, post on the wall, place on the tables, or even top on the wedding cake. They can be in glitters, paints or even the use of recycled materials.

You can put some glitters, color paint or anything that produces eye-catching bells. They can be embedded on the invitations as well. In some wedding shops, there are little cute bells that you can buy and display from walls to ceilings, posts to tables, anywhere. Here are more ideal wedding bells that you can consider having.
