1. Original wedding favors. Last year at the super amazing awesome North Star Art Bazaar, I spotted these spray painted wishbones and fell in love with their story. How romantic would it be to leave a wedding with your own bag of wishes? At $12 a bag, this favor is not cheap. I suggest buying the wishbones in bulk, spraypainting them, and stamping your own bags as a fun DIY project with your bridesmaids.
2. More creative wedding favors. This little goldfish - captured in a bar of glycerine soap - offers another unique wedding favor. At $2 a bag, it's inexpensive and clever. Add a little hand printed label with the name of the bride and groom and you have a fantabulous give-away. Right?
3. Handmade place cards. Aren't these adorable place cards from Paper Satchel?
Wait, there is more. See how they are displayed below?Imagine your guests finding their names on this typewriter and flipping over their custom card to find their table number.
4. Colorful themes pins. Instead of corsages for the mothers of the bride and groom, how about identifying your VIP's with these colorful sea horse pins from My Santo?
Or blue whales? At $25 they cost the same as a corsage, but last forever.
Wedding season is upon us and I have my eyes out for creative ideas. Have you seen anything worthy of reporting?
