Hi, loves! I love when I find cute wedding, bachelorette party, or bridal shower favors that guests will enjoy, especially when it can be used again and again! Since you’re allocating money for favors, you might as well find something awesome that guests can actually use, right? That’s what I think, too! So, naturally, when I spotted these wine charms over at Kara’s Vineyard Wedding, I couldn’t wait to share them with you. They make incredible bachelorette party favors (or bridal shower favors) and, as Kara points out in her shop, they can be used as place cards, too! They’re especially perfect for a wine themed bachelorette party, don’t you think? Take a closer look…

We love hearing from our brides… and their moms, too! When Susan wrote to us about her daughter’s bridal shower, we swooped right in with inspiration. She’s planning a kitchen themed bridal shower, but was having trouble finding the perfect invites with a more modern feel. To help, we found kitchen bridal shower invitations with matching recipe cards for guests to fill out and bring to the party. Once we found those, it was easy to piece together some additional ideas. Check out the invitations by Lucy Loves Paper and see what else we found including a state cutting board, apron, personalized rolling pin (ahh, I want one of these), a recipe box, cookbook, and favors. Which of these finds do you love best? Besides those invites, I’m crazy over that apron… it’s darling!
Hi, lovelies! If a traditional bridal shower isn’t your thing, consider a couples shower instead! A couples shower is where men and women are invited together to party and celebrate the happy couple. Today we’re sharing one of our favorite ideas: a beer tasting couples shower. This is a great way to toast the happy couple, mingle, and get acquainted with some fun new craft brews. This is a great shower idea, but works extremely well, too, for a joint bachelor and bachelorette party. Or, it makes a great reason to throw a party for a groomsmen / bridesmaid get together so everyone can get acquainted before the wedding. If there will be non-drinkers, we encourage you to include root beers in the mix — there are a surprisingly large number of different root beers to sample. Just check your local grocery store! Okay, on to the inspiration!
