It’s time for another Ask Emmaline wedding advice question! Bride-to-be Karen wants to buy caramel apple favors for her wedding but she’s not sure where to go. She writes,
“I’m planning a late fall wedding and we’re deciding on wedding favors. We want to give caramel apples as favors to guests. I originally wanted to make them ourselves, but I’m not sure how difficult it will be and I am not sure where to buy them. Do you have any ideas on where to get apples in bulk or where to buy caramel apple favors for weddings? Thanks!”

Spotted: a fun and totally easy bridal shower game called Steal the Ring! How it works is pretty self-explanatory, so guests will definitely love to play. On a table, place a bowl full of rings (something like this, or these) for guests to take. Include a sign that reads, “Take a ring – do not say ‘wedding’ or ‘bride’. Steal rings from those that do!” You can mix up this game to include the bride’s name, the wedding date, the groom’s name, or something similar. It’s a lot of fun! The guest with the most rings at the end of the shower gets a prize. It’s funny how often you realize you’re about to say the bride’s name, or groom’s name, or the word wedding while at the shower. It’s actually a tough game to play!

We recently spotted the most beautiful copper mug favors at this Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park wedding and were eager to replicate it ourselves. Copper mugs make excellent wedding favors for guests. And while a copper mug looks cool, that’s not the only reason why people love to drink out of them.
As a matter of fact, the mug is named after the drink commonly served in them: The Moscow Mule. It is made of ginger beer, lime, and vodka (get a recipe here). I haven’t tried one myself (yet!), but apparently a Moscow Mule is served in a copper mug because the cold metal enhances its taste. The cold copper also increases the amount of the bubbles in the carbonated ginger beer, so you get more fizziness in a copper mug than in a regular glass or plastic container. So, now that you know why people are crazy for these copper mugs, it’s time to talk about how to make your own copper mug favors for guests to take home. Find out more below on how to make these copper mugs more affordable, see a cute mini version, and get a FREE printable sign to use at your wedding! Enjoy!
Hey, loves! Have you seen the thumbprint guest book poster at Flutterbye Prints yet? This poster is a true modern work of art! Instead of a classic guest book, which is flipped through and signed in true book form, this guest book alternative is placed on an easel for guests to sign, then framed and displayed as artwork in your home. The process is so easy and the print is made from your ACTUAL thumbprints. How cool! It is today’s handmade-a-day pick. Take a look…
This shoe valet is sure to keep guests happy at your wedding! For outdoor weddings or beach weddings, when the ground is grassy, muddy, or sandy, you can offer a shoe valet for guests. This is a place to store shoes while they’re dancing the night away. It’s easy to make your own shoe valet by re-purposing an old shelf or vintage dresser, like this inspiring piece:
Spotted: This groom wrote a surprise note on his bride’s cowboy boots and we think it’s a steal-worthy idea. He penned, “I can’t wait for these boots to carry you down the aisle” / “I love you Lynnie and I can’t wait to marry you!” Awwwww. What a sweet surprise (and fantastic photo-op).
