Wedding Wednesday

 I think it is really important to have personal touches on your wedding day. Things that really make the day yours. There are SO many ways to do this, but these are a couple of my favorites.

A thank you note to all of your guests. Such a sweet, heartfelt leave behind.

You know your friends are going to have aching feet and goosebumps at an outdoor September wedding, so why not make them more comfortable!?

Choose a bridesmaid dress that the girls ACTUALLY love.

Have fun! Make cocktail hour something a little different
Add a monogram to anything and everything!
What are your favorite wedding details that you've seen?

  3. That's so very true! I let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses. Same color, different styles. And I also provided flip flops for each and every guest. It was a huge hit!

  4. I couldn't agree more! My girls were in Anthro dresses and they loved them (plus they were less than $130 and some girls got them on sale for 50% off!)

    I'm doing a "Wedding Week" series on my blog right now where I am recapping the details of our wedding ceremony and reception if you want to take a peek :)

  8. Great ideas!
    Our wedding is outdoors so we're handing out handmade woven fans for everyone. We're also making super cute welcome bags filled with goodies from Baltimore (groom's fam is from there) and Puerto Rico (I'm from there). That way everyone can get a taste of both our backgrounds :)

  10. We went to a wedding where they had tons of games like this during the cocktail hour.. of course you need the right setting (there's was at a barn) but it was such a relaxing and fun way to spend cocktail hour. Also love the shawls and flip flops. I think we will be doing something similar for our guests.

  16. Yeah, the bridesmaids dresses are crazy good. Every bride thinks the dresses she chooses can be worn again, but the bridesmaid is always like, yeah right in her head. But these, these I'd wear for sure.

  18. Great ideas! For my wedding last year, we took old family wedding photos, labeled them and displayed them in the reception foyer so that guests could take a look on the way in. It was also a nice way to honor those we love that are no longer with us.

  19. I will be stealing ALL of your monogrammed cookies :) Love all of these - such gorgeous and fun ideas!

  20. So cute! I added scented sparkles to my wedding invites, sparkly gems to my bouquet and to the flowers on the centerpieces. It's all about the personal touches!

  21. I think my favorite was a chocolate bar at the end...they had these *towers* of the most beautiful gourmet chocolates and little boxes for you to fill, beautiful and *super* fun for the chocolate loving guest (ahem, ME)!

  24. I love that thank you note -- so sweet! I went to a wedding this summer that had croquet, ladder ball and horseshoes during the cocktail hour. Everyone actually thought that was one of the most fun parts!
