Himalayan pink salt is a white crystalline substance that, to me, looks like a crystal. But, there are a lot of minerals in it as well, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, and even trace elements. You can use it as an impromptu wedding theme, or a casual garden wedding.
For example, in many Asian countries, the wedding colors are blue and pink. That means you might want to incorporate some blue crystal Himalayan pink salt into your garden wedding, with a place card with the bride and groom's names on it to remind the guests. They'll have a beautiful occasion to remember, and the crystals will be hardy enough to stand up to nature's storms.
If you choose to incorporate a Himalayan salt garden into your wedding theme, don't forget to make sure you have lots of food. Because the crystals won't get too hot, the cakes shouldn't be baking in the sun either.
The crystals also offer natural minerals, like calcium, which can help the wedding reception centerpieces last longer. That's not just important for making them look good, it also means the crystal salts won't start to disintegrate when exposed to the weather. In fact, if they're left in a warm area for a while, they could melt.
If you want to use a salt fountain at your wedding, that's a good idea as well. It'll take care of most of the water needs. And, you can put your picture on the tank. If you're using a container with a basin at the bottom, you'll be able to refill the basin easily.
If you're just going to use the water as a way to draw water from the garden and make your wedding water into the wedding setting, you may not need to use a fountain. You may find that you can easily clean out the tank yourself.
That's a huge advantage. This is very easy to do in a dishwasher, or even at a lower level with a simple piece of plastic. It can really save time for the parents of the guests and for you.
If you're going for a romantic wedding theme, and using the snow in the garden is out of the question, you can also use a salt slide at the bottom of the table. It'll work just as well, with crystal Himalayan salt placed inside the slide for decoration. Just be sure the slide isn't too deep, so your guests aren't covered in salt.
If you're using an outdoor tent, you can actually use the tent and use it as a slide. Again, there aren't any special precautions to take.
At the end of the day, you'll have a salt rock for seating, as well as a table that's shaped like a mountain. The top of the mountain will hold the place cards. All the wedding photos will go on the table top.
For a water-based marriage theme, I'd suggest you mix the salt into table salt and sprinkle it over the table top. It really does work well, as long as you buy table salt with a baking soda coating.
A self-made salt and vinegar wedding cake, or even an organic version using organic buttercream will work just as well. Remember, the bride and groom will probably want to eat the cake, so you want to be sure you have it moist. It won't be that good, but it will taste good.
