Wedding Christmas Ornaments Adorning your next Christmas Tree!
Wedding Christmas OrnamentsA wedding is an event to commemorate; in photos, in memories, and now in wedding Christmas ornaments. Christmas trees have a habit of commemorating all of life’s most important moments - There are ornaments you made out of macaroni when you were in kindergarten, ornaments given as gifts, ornaments recognizing births and graduations. Shouldn’t your marriage win a spot on the tree as well? Wedding Christmas ornaments are as customizable as your wedding day, as so they should be just as elegant and simple. Wedding Christmas ornaments are the most special when they are customized with your names and the date of your wedding, not just a generic bride and groom with loops on their heads. Think about glass wedding Christmas ornaments - or ones with pictures of you and your new spouse on your wedding day (or your honeymoon! Believe me, the bikini won’t look THAT out of place amidst your other decorations). Wedding Christmas ornaments are a great way to find a spot on the tree for your wedding day, no matter when you walked down the aisle – this makes wedding Christmas ornaments great gifts for the couple whose registry just won’t cut it. Also, think about adding wedding Christmas ornaments as favors for your guests. You aren’t the only ones who will appreciate a commemoration of your special day!
Get Inspired by Winter Wedding Favors
Winter Wedding FavorsWinter and Holiday weddings open up all kinds of opportunities for unique and inspired wedding favors. Winter wedding favors are always guaranteed to be whipped out in the homes of your guests around the winter season and the holidays, consistently reminding them of your special day. Winter Wedding Favors take all shapes and sizes, though food-related items are always a guaranteed hit. The difference between edible wedding favors during the rest of the year versus winter? Winter wedding favors provide a perfect opportunity for that warm and/or savory comforting treat. When the temperature drops, you better believe guests will appreciate a hot coco set or ginger bread men cookie cutters. Package up holiday cookies, fudge, or any other holiday treat that means something to you and your family. Guests will also appreciate the delicate touch of another winter staple: the snowflake. Snowflakes make excellent accents to all winter wedding favors; print them on boxes, top them on bottle openers, and think about providing a station for kids to cut out their own paper snowflakes – just make sure they’re properly supervised! Winter wedding favors are perfect for your winter wedding – bundle up!
Wedding Place Card Holders Set the Scene
Wedding Place Card HoldersWedding place card holders are probably the first things that your guests will see as they enter your ceremony space. Yes, they’ll notice the feel of the room, the centerpieces and the cake (if it’s set out) too, but the first small detail that they will see will be your wedding place card holders.
It’s no secret that the small touches are what makes a wedding. Every hall can be filled with roses and washed with pink tinted light, but your small touches are what sets your wedding apart from someone else’s. Things like wedding place card holders show your guests the time and energy you put in to your wedding day, and they will reciprocate that energy and passion.
Wedding place card holders don’t have to be fancy - on the contrary. Simple touches are often the most significant to an impressionable guest. Try to fit the wedding place card holders to the theme and feel of your wedding; paper bird silhouettes for a garden affair, tiny bells for a church wedding, or small renderings of famous works of art for a gallery cocktail hour. This detail is often the most overlooked, but can be a precious keepsake for your guest. If you’re hiring a calligrapher for your pace cards (or having friends and family help with the printing and design), keep in mind where the wedding place card holders will grip the cards. It might be confusing for a guest if their name is cut off by a wayward but well-meaning rosette.
Elegant Candle Wedding Favors
Candle Wedding FavorsSelecting appropriate wedding favors can be a difficult, especially if you’re trying to select something both elegant and useful. If you want something that will slip seamlessly into your guests’ decor and is both beautiful and memorable, look no further than candle wedding favors. Color scheme and theme are no longer obstacles when you opt for candle wedding favors, because their elegant simplicity matches all surroundings.
Guests won’t forget their candle wedding favors on their way out for the night! And it isn’t a problem if a group finds themselves with several candle wedding favors. Unlike other gifts (“What do we do with four knitted toaster coazies?!”), candle wedding favors aren’t a burden in abundance (and they won’t put a strain on your wallet, either). Add a personal touch by thinking outside of the molded tea light - try candle wedding favors in lanterns, with flowers, and even shaped into unexpected objects (think apples, seashells).
Candle wedding favors also include fun holders for candles your guests already have at home (though it’s always a good idea to include a candle with your gift so everyone knows what it’s for). The addition of candle wedding favors to their mantle will have them thinking of you for years to come.
They'll remember your practical wedding favors
practical wedding favorsWhen was the last time you went to a wedding and left your favor at the reception because it was so forgettable? Do you still use any of the favors you’ve ever received at a wedding? Can you even recall what they were?
Favors are a chance for you to thank your guests for their attendance, and they’re also a way to make sure your guests won’t forget how much fun they had at your wedding. With fun and practical wedding favors, they’ll think about you every time they go to crack a bottle of wine or slice up a homemade pizza. Here are some fun suggestions for practical wedding favors, depending on your personal style:
If you’re having a destination wedding, there is no greater set of practical wedding favors than luggage tags. These practical wedding favors are small enough to bring home, will be used for years to come, and fit perfectly into your getaway. Guests can use the tags on the way home to make sure everything comes back with them!
If you’re a foodie, food-themed practical wedding favors are for you. Everyone loves food (and wine!) and your favors can accompany your guests at meal time long after your wedding is over. Foodie practical wedding favors come in the shapes of adorable salt and pepper shakers, tea infusers, honey pots, pizza cutters, olive trays, and anything else you can think of that’s small, portable, and incredibly useful. You can even include something edible for your guests (No one ever complains about chocolate, especially if you’re on a budget) as your practical wedding favors.
No matter what your hobbies or interests as a couple are, there are practical wedding favors out there to reflect them. Into books? Share elegant bookmarks with your guests on their way out the door. Can’t stop showing off your diamond? Provide your guests with something equally impressive as you send them off with giant engagement ring key chains or napkin rings. From cookie cutters to whisks to photo coasters, there are practical wedding favors for your guests no matter what your personal taste.
Give your guests the gift of wine wedding favors
wine wedding favorsWedding favors are a nice gesture for any couple looking to thank their guests for attending. Favors don’t have to be flashy or expensive, but a touch of practicality is always appreciated. Wine wedding favors have the appeal of a practical gift with the elegance of a formal one. Wine wedding favors range from charms to stoppers to corkscrews to decorations, and all are appropriate for any wedding - from the beach to the ballroom.
Wine charms are particularly cute wine wedding favors, and could even be used throughout the evening to differentiate between guests’ glasses - just be sure to leave a little note at each place setting, reminding them to take their wine wedding favors home!
Bottle openers and corkscrews are also popular wine wedding favors. Though their functions will probably not be needed during dinner, these wine wedding favors will be a beautiful and useful addition to your guests’ homes. If you’re strapped for cash, but you’re still set on wine wedding favors at your event, consider allotting one for every social unit instead of every guest. Also, it’s very unlikely that the children attending with their families will have much use for wine wedding favors!
Wedding Hand Fans
Help Your Guests Beat the Heat with Wedding Hand FansFall may be upon us, but hot days are still surprising brides all over the country. Don’t be caught unprepared! Wedding hand fans make a great favor for your guests, and they’ll definitely appreciate it if your ceremony is outdoors. Wedding hand fans are easy to slip into your décor, and make lovely additions to your guests’ seats or place settings. Wedding hand fans come in a variety of colors and won’t look out of place no matter what your color scheme or theme. Wedding hand fans are dainty and discreet – even if you didn’t plan on using them before your big day, they can be great to have on hand just in case. The same goes for wedding umbrellas! Outdoor weddings are rising in popularity, but often a bride will forget about the aisles of sweaty guests that will be watching her nuptials. She may be so swept up in the moment that she won’t need wedding hand fans, but her guests certainly will! Make them as comfortable as possible with wedding hand fans and they won’t think twice about the blazing sun – all eyes will be on you.
Wedding Favor Cameras
Fun Uses for Wedding Favor Cameras
Fun ways to encourage guests to use wedding favor cameras:
- Provide scavenger hunt cards that challenge guests to capture a variety of moments at your wedding, such as the bouquet in midair, groups of people laughing, the groom kissing his new wife, and children dancing with the bride. Wedding favor cameras are portable and fun, and they’re durable enough that it isn’t the end of the world if they’re dropped on the dance floor.
- Hand out wedding favor cameras to the children at your wedding. You’ll be able to see your wedding from their perspective (expect several shots of the cupcake table), and wedding favor cameras are a great distraction for young ones who aren’t quite old enough the hit the dance floor.
- Use wedding favor cameras as either a supplement or replacement for your guestbook. Guests can take photos and sign the camera (or printed pictures) with their well wishes for you and your new spouse. It might be more advisable to use wedding favor cameras as just a supplement to the guestbook - it’s hard (and unrealistic) to flip through boxes of cameras to find the cute message from your great aunt six months from now.
No matter how you use them, wedding favor cameras are a great addition to any wedding day, and will provide you and your new spouse with albums full of candid memories.
Wedding favor cameras can be a great way for guests to catch candid moments of you and your beloved on your wedding day. If you provide enough of them (one for every two or three guests or one per table), wedding favor cameras can catch moments that your photographer missed - including multiple perspectives of key events such as the cake cutting and first dance.
Next in line are Bling Hummingbirds. Taking flight with a novel line of Garden Friends, they come in all new styles and colors! With them you may plant an awe-inspiring garden of Flowers in a wide range of styles on your top tier, along with crystal leaves and deft curly stems. Why not hover these wedding decorations over a nice bouquet of Flowers or simply perch them on top of your Monograms or Hearts? Another interesting option would be to crystallize the delicate wings for an added sparkle.
