Dress Up your Favors...

Hello Brides out there that are always looking for the odd but beautiful thing, I think I may have found something to add to your wonderful ideas of uniqueness at your wedding. What could it be you ask? Well it is a nifty little shop on etsy called Paperlemons and I had to tell you all about it. Her name is Luisa and she makes the cutest , most unique tags I have seen yet. They are striking little odd looking beautiful things that I would use to bring beauty and brightness to any room , decor or party and of course more importantly, wedding table.

These are a wonderful way to dress up favors which as we may know are really another excuse to have pretty little things at a table among other things. Let's face it, they are not just a way to say thank you to your guests but rather they somehow tie the entire decor in the room together. So needless to say, most often I have seen people pick out favors that are a good idea but sadly seem to be doomed to have such mandane presentation, which frankly I think is might as well just skip the whole favor thing, because again let's face it, you can't really say thank you to 150 of your guests, some of who travelled miles to be with you on your special day with candy or a scented while it is a nice idea, it is really for us, for the beauty, for the fun, for the excuse to add something other to our decor and celebration, as well as share some quirk about ourselves with our guests, so why not own it and then do it in style, with intention and boldness? This would definitely be one way to achieve that, so check out more of her items at and see what other fun things you might find. My guess is you can have whatever you want if you let her know. I would keep her in mind for things like unique invitations as well or maybe place cards and such cute stationery needs, I know I will :).

Bold, Colorful Wreaths

I am a big fan of brides who march to the beat of their own drum. One of the funnest things that a bride has to do is pick out some interesting kind of head wear, but lately if you look around most of it looks pretty similar and, honestly, pretty uneventful. So if you are looking for a fun and unique way to spruce up your look on that day, I think wreaths would be a great departure from the usual. Now I am not talking about the kind of wreaths that look like they are trying to disappear, I am talking bold, unique, beautiful and fully there-so no one will miss them or you. I found these in a fun shop on etsy. There is pretty much something for everyone, whether you are looking for something subtle or bold you will find some very fun and unique options. I am of course a big fan of the bold and beautiful, so that is what you will see below :) These are also perfect if you are looking for a way to be environmentally friendly since a lot of them are made with recycled items. Take a look at Whichgoose on etsy at to see the countless options available to you. Enjoy!!!

Cool Lighting Decor !!!

So I found these on etsy and thought they were awesome because they pull triple maybe quadruple duty...firstly as lighting, secondly as ambience, and thirdly as personalized decor that can be used for many other occasions. If you are a bride that is looking for interesting ways to light up your celebration with character, but don't want the usual harsh LED lighting or to pay for a lighting technician who will probably do something that has already been seen a bajillion times, this is definitely a great solution to consider. Take a look at and see what else she has on there and share your thoughts.
