Things You'll Need

Create a "Heaven on Earth" Atmosphere
Create "Heaven on Earth" invitations with an angel theme. Check the Internet and local stores for angelic cardstock to create your invitations. Look for beige or white invitations with embossed lettering and trimmed in silver and gold with touches of heavenly swirls, feathers and delicate designs.
Pick a garden setting or create a garden-like setting to mimic the feel of the Garden of Eden. Decorate the venue for the rececption with images of angels and touches of clouds and feathers. Pick from a palette of light blues, white, silver and gold to create your color scheme. Add soft lights or candles to enhance the mood.
Set up a "Place in the Clouds" spot where you and your guests can take pictures at the reception. You can have halos dangling above with twinkling lights and white balloons. Cover the ground with soft white cotton or polyester batting, a material used in quilting.
Research other angel themed weddings. Flip through magazines and ask for the opinion of family, friends and wedding planners. The Internet also has an abundance of pictures and "Heaven on Earth" themes for weddings
Create a "Heaven on Earth" Bridal Party
Choose bridesmaid dresses that match your color palette and the feel of the event. Loose flowing dresses in light blue, lavendar or soft yellow will add to the "Heaven on Earth" theme.
Pick a dress for "flower angels" in place of flower girls. Add small wings and golden laurel headdresses to the costume for flower girls. Decorate their flower baskets with feathers and lace and have them throw feathers and flowers at the wedding.
Choose a wedding gown that flows. Dress up your veil and hair with little white rosebuds and feathers to enhance your theme of`"Heaven on Earth".
Ask your florist to design bouquets that include baby's breath and delicate flowers for your angelic theme. Incorporate satin, lace and gauze to accent flower bouquets.
