On the big day, the bride and her attendants get ready together either at someone’s house, a church, or a hotel room. Getting ready with so many people can be hectic and with the bridesmaids having identical dresses, it’s easy to get them confused. Etsy.com store “Blissfully Wired” makes wooden hangers with customized wire into any words, names, or phrases. This makes for a cute gift as well as making it easy for everyone in the bridal party to tell which dress is whose. Another thing I love about these hangers is that they construct the date out of wire and put it on top of the hanger so you can remember that special day. Each hanger is made free hand and you can choose the wire and wood color to add something extra to an ordinary hanger.
A great way to remind guests about how much fun they had at your wedding is a great wedding favor. It’s a perfect way for them to take home a little piece of your big day! From DIY to online and store buys, there are so many great, unique options for wedding favors.
When choosing that special gift for all your guests, keep in mind: where you will store them, if they are perishable, the weather of your reception, the decor of your reception, and most importantly, what you want the meaning behind your favor to be.
Is it a symbol of your love? Is it your family’s secret recipe? Or is it something practical that they can use/wear at the reception? Look at these photos below for inspiration to help you find the perfect wedding favor!
