Champagne toasts, cake, seeing your uncle bust out some ridiculous moves to James Brown on the dance floor, pledging your love to your soulmate… seriously, what’s not to love about weddings?
One of the very best parts about weddings (besides the whole “getting married to the love of your life” part) is putting your stamp on it. These days, more and more couples are getting creative with everything from signature cocktails to favors to unconventional catering options in order to make their day more special, memorable, and unique to who they are as a couple. The options these days are limitless—which can get overwhelming (and expensive) really fast. So, we put together a few quick ideas for small touches that make a big difference, without putting a horse-drawn, carriage-shaped hole in your budget.
Custom wine and champagne labels
What’s more fun than popping open a bottle of brut? Popping open one that has your name on it (and maybe even your face!), of course. Creating custom wine labels for the bar at your reception is one of those small details that makes such a big difference—and they can even double as table numbers for your reception. (Note: this is also perfect for getting the bachelorette party started, or even for popping the question to your own bridesmaids.)
One of the best parts about modern-day wedding trends? Favors that guests actually love taking home. Goodbye, monogrammed trinkets… hello, cake in a jar. The beauty of these DIY favors is that, once you assemble the ingredients and package them, all you need to tie everything together is a pretty label. Whether it’s his and hers snack bags or jars of homemade jam, personalized wedding favor labels can elevate these gifts from cute favors to sweet, cherished keepsakes. And a custom commemorative sticker from the day is always a fun parting gift to send guests home with.
Wedding party gifts
Thoughtful, personal gifts are a great way to honor your wedding party… especially after they’ve been there for you through the ups and downs of putting a wedding together. If your maid of honor helped you seal and stamp every last one of your invitations, or let you cry on her shoulder after you agonized over the seating chart, thank her with a personalized self-care kit of bath salts, wine, and a candle with her name on it. And we really love the idea of sending groomsmen and bridesmaids home with their own personalized bottle of spirits (with your name or theirs), maybe even complete with a personalized flask—let’s just say they’ll be toasting to you for long after you make your getaway.
The little things
It really is the tiniest detail that often makes the biggest differences. And having you and your partner’s name, or a sweet sentiment on mini boxes of tissues, tubes of bubbles for your getaway, or wooden hangers for you and your wedding party’s duds makes an already special day that much more special for you and your guests.
So, we can’t guarantee Aunt Gladys won’t go off-topic in her toast, but we can at least help you realize your vision with wedding favor labels on the finishing touches. And we don’t have a minimum order requirement, either, so you won’t be saddled with 500 extra “Chris and Courtney 4Ever” stickers you can’t use. (Unless you want those, of course.)
