Practical or Edible

When brainstorming for guest favour ideas either go in one of these two directions; practical or edible. You don’t want to give your guests something that they will never use or probably throw outa few weeks after the festivities.

Giving them something edible is perfect because they eat it and then its gone! No need to think about where they will put it, cause there is only one place to put it, and that is in their mouths!

I was at a friend’s wedding this past weekend and their favours were cookie mixes in mason jars! They added some nice fabric and ribbon that went with the colour scheme of the wedding. They were executed so well and looked so nice all lined up on the table at the entrance of the reception hall. This favour is both practical and edible, as well as delicious! Practical, because you can always use a mason jar for something! You can store baking ingredients in there or re-gift it and put your own cookie mix in. Edible because, well, they are cookies! I love to bake so this was right up my alley and they turned out great!

 

Fancy Fingers

So I was painting my nails the other day and when I went to work, I realized that my nail colour was the exact same as one our bridesmaids colours. It is  super in right now and the colour of the season, Coral. I used Revlon’s nail enamel called “Perfectly Pink” and it looks just like David’s Bridal’s Coral Reef.

I think that it is a great idea for the Bride to paint her nails the same colour as her Bridesmaids dresses. This wouldn’t work for every wedding, it would depend on the style of the day. If it is a more formal wedding, the Bride might want to go with a classic french manicure. But for a fanciful themed wedding, this would definitly work!

I will keep my eye out for other colour matches! Keep posted :)
