Using Wedding Favors as Table Seating Assignments

One of my fave wedding favors I create for special events is personalized ornaments.  I love to see the different and creative ways couples use them for their special day.

Wedding Favors as Table Seating Assignments

One of my recent clients got married this summer in a rustic, barn setting.  She had contacted me in the spring about taking one of my barn designs and making into an ornament.  I was intrigued since I knew this was a summer wedding.  I made the ornaments for her and sent them off, always wishing I could see how they are used.

Wedding Favors as Table Seating Assignments

I’m always so happy to hear from the couples after the weddings when they share pictures!  Nicki and Peter had used the barn ornaments, hanging on a door, as table seating assignments.  Isn’t that cool?

Wedding Favors as Table Seating Assignments

The table number is on the flip side of the name tag.  So you can take care of the wedding favors and table seating in one item and it makes a cool display as well.

That’s what I love about the ornaments, is they can be used as a display piece, not just as an ornament.

Gorgeous Colors for Fall Weddings from Rose Red Bridal Designs

Fall is such a beautiful season for weddings–the golden colors of the leaves, the darkening days that make sparkle start to really shine through, and the cozy fireside and rustic venues that are pitch perfect for autumn receptions. I created my fall line with all of these in mind, especially the fall colors of champagne, gold, copper and a crisper frosted white and silver. Here are a few bridal looks that work wonderfully for those of you still pulling that autumn wedding together or who are getting inspired for a big fall bash in 2015.

Why (and How) to Choose Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

We all know the line that goes along with bridesmaid dresses:  “AND you can wear it again!!”  But the real nitty-gritty truth of the matter is: you will be hard-pressed to find a group of women who all love the same dress and look great in it.  Let’s face it ladies, we all have different bodies that come along with their own set of strengths and weaknesses.  We should dress them accordingly.

I like to think that bridesmaid style is a reflection of you, the bride.  If your petite college roommate is drowning in a satin gown and your busty bestie is overflowing out of the strapless top, it may be time to try some different options.

The newer trend of mismatched dresses for bridesmaids is great for so many reasons.  When all your best girls are fit and flattered in their dresses, it allows all the focus to be on you and your man on your wedding day.

It also allows your friends to choose their own budget.  Typical bridesmaid dresses are exorbitantly expensive, and usually poorly made with cheap fabrics.  These days there are so many avenues for finding amazing fashion at affordable prices.  From flash sale websites to online consignment shops, and even shopping on Instagram, your options are limitless.

Here I have put together an entire bridal party look, all dresses are (well) under $100:

Handmade Bridal Lace Clutches for the Wedding Day and Beyond

ANGEE W. Reverie Lace Clutch in Gray and Ivory for the wedding, honeymoon and beyond

Bridal and bridesmaids lace clutches make great travel clutch bags for the passport, boarding passes, and travel necessities

Have you ever met the black hole inside your handbag? It usually shows itself when you need to find something quickly, something like your passport and boarding pass in front of a tired and grumpy immigration officer…  Not exactly how you’d want to start your honeymoon travels indeed!

Fret not Dear Brides, your wedding clutch bag could be your solution to ban that black hole away forever!  Small in size and elegantly constructed on a snappy metal kiss lock frame, a bridal or bridesmaid’s clutch bag can be a great travel companion keeping all these travel knick knacks and important documents in check.

Whether it’s to hold your passport and boarding pass or your lip gloss and aspirins, you know that you won’t have to fumble into your tightly packed-to-the-brim large travel handbag when you need to flash out your documents at the airport immigration or at the hotel check-in.

So, make sure to include one into your wedding trousseau!
