Inspired & Simple Wedding Favor Ideas

So you’ve found your perfect dress,  booked all the vendors and the bridal party has everything they need to look great by your side. But what about the guest favors? If your wedding day is creeping up and you still have no idea how to thank your guests here are some simple favor ideas we thought you might like!

The key is to pick something that wont just collect dust. Choose something that can be reusable or practical, but is still memorable. Still lost? Start thinking about how many people are on your guest list and what they might enjoy or appreciate. Trust us…they do not need nor want a 2″x2″ mini picture frame!

Edibles are always a good choice but think outside of the box…of traditional sweet treats that is!  Why not local jars of honey accompanied by a sampling of your favorite tea or fresh roasted coffee beans for guests? They will think of you every time they pour a cup!

For the eco-friendly bride, small succulent plants potted in recycled tins or jars with your guests seating assignments creatively displayed can double as favors and place cards!

For the crafty DIY bride who is inclined to do it herself we found these sweet little “seed bombs.”

For easy directions and ingredients, visit  offbeatbride.com/2012/07/diy-seed-bomb-favors. Or if you don’t have as much time as you thought, Etsy.com can provide them for you (the seed bombs above are from www.etsy.com/au/listing/123723835/elegant-plantable-paper-seed-bomb).

Be creative and always remember that whichever favor you choose, its a gesture of thanks and a memento of your beautiful day!

A Beautiful Burlap Wedding

 Lace, satin, chiffon, and…burlap?  You heard right, burlap may not be a traditional fabric seen in a wedding but burlap details are on trend.  The neutral color works with any color theme, and it creates a DIY feel perfect for a rustic wedding.  Anywhere you would put ribbon or another fabric is a great place to incorporate burlap.  Have fun with it!

I Want Candy!

Did you know that June is “National Candy Month”? What better way to celebrate than having a candy themed wedding!? Here we have plenty of ideas that will help you create a candy-wonderland for your guests.

There is always the beloved candy bar where you can fill a table with sweet treats for guests to take home.  This candy bar was at a party by ABE featuring the party girl’s favorite candies!

LOVE this beautiful lollipop accented bouquet for the bride.

Set off the party right by greeting your guests with these lemon drop placement cards.

Have sweets ready to snack and sip on as soon as people sit down.

This candyland theme wedding by Martha Stewert Weddings is elegant and a perfect way to take on the theme without having a candy overload.

Have guests spin their own cotton candy. Delicious and fun!

No wedding would be complete without a cake, continue the theme with a candy decorated confection.

Finally, say your goodbyes in the sweetest way: with some yummy personalized treats.

Dreaming of a White Wedding

Yesterday we avoided the roaring blizzard by drifting off to a beautiful vision of a beach front wedding. Now that snow has landed and we’re all safely snuggled by the fire let’s embrace the beautiful white wonderland and talk about the weddings that welcome the snowflakes and winter setting.

 

Snowy, winter weddings are great for incorporating natural elements because there are so many ways to include decor from good ol’ mother nature.  Evergreen branches, rustic wood touches, and adorable pine cone bouquets create an enchanting atmosphere for guests while they sip hot cocoa and inhale the warming scents of winter.

These weddings are great for winter sport lovers or for those who simply appreciate the cozy feelings winter can bring. They can be created with elegance and sophistication or tailored to be quirky and fun. The decision is up to you!
