Hi, loves! Happy Monday! We’re kicking off this beautiful first week of fall in the sweetest fashion: with a wedding giveaway! But first… are you looking for a wedding favor your guests will actually love? Make it easy on yourself and go with candy: a) it’s edible, b) it’s affordable, and c) it’s candy, which everyone loves! Win, win. Win. When you add personalized candy wrappers to the mix, your favors will tie in beautifully with your themed wedding. To inspire you (and help you keep a little change in your pocket), we’ve teamed up with Sweet Paper Shop to give away personalized candy wrappers for wedding favors. These candy wrappers will cover a standard Hershey’s 1.55oz milk chocolate bar. You get to pick your favorite pattern and your candy wrappers will be personalized just for you. The hardest part of making your favors will be deciding which pattern to pick and trying not to sneak a few chocolate bars before the big day… Believe me, Andrew & I gave Hershey’s candy bar favors at our wedding and, let’s just say we ordered a little extra, you know, for taste-testing purposes. (Someone’s gotta make sure they taste good… am I right?) Enjoy!
When people ask us about the best engagement gift ideas, I can’t help but mention wedding prints as one of them. Customization is at the heart of a wedding — particularly handmade weddings — and personalized wedding art prints makes perfect sense. Artwork is a functional gift, which can be framed and displayed in the home of the newlyweds for years to come. A personalized wedding print can also be used as a makeshift guest book, onto which guests sign around the edges at the reception. (A guest book on the wall? You’ll definitely look at it more than a closed book on your shelf!) Today we are introducing eight of our favorite new wedding prints by theme by the talented Michael Dexter Design. But we want to know: which one is perfect for your big day?
Did you know the elephant is a symbol of strength, power, patience, and luck? That’s why it is such a powerful pendant to wear, particularly when it looks as lovely as this one. This lucky elephant gold necklace from The Dedication Company is just one of the items we’re crushing on in Rebecca’s shop, which features personalized jewelry you and your wedding party will love to wear. Take a look at my personal favorite — the elephant gold necklace with personalized charm — and then see the other cool finds we nabbed from her shop. We also heard there’s a 15% off coupon you can use on anything your little heart desires…

Belt buckle bottle opener. Try saying that five times fast! One of the best things that happens when handmade artisans share their talents with the world is you get custom, personalized gifts that keep on giving. That’s what happened when Metalogical designer and owner, Chris, received this glowing feedback from a newlywed couple: “In the rush of wedding-mess, I never got back to you, but I wanted to let you know that the buckles were a huge hit—the guys loved them, and spent the entire week showing them off. I’m not sure that we’ve gone out with the crew even once since then when someone wasn’t wearing them—thank you again for your beautiful work!” How’s that for a glowing recommendation! This unique belt buckle bottle opener features your groom (or groomsman’s) initials personalized right on the front. The buckle can be attached to one of his in-house belts (or your own) so you’ll always have an opener at the ready. This makes an exceptional gift for the groom, groomsmen, and best man, and you can be sure it is a gift they’ll ACTUALLY USE. Read on to find out how you can win one as Giveaway #14 in this month’s AWESOME giveaway series!
