Wedding Shower Favor: The Way To Say Thanks To Your Friends And Relatives

Wedding showers favors are some of the time-honored tradition that you should never forget. No, a simple thank you will not do in this case. Remember that people who will attend your wedding shower will need something to help them remember the event and the best way to help them remember your wedding shower party is to give them wedding shower favors. Fortunately, you do not have to buy expensive wedding shower favors for your friends and family members. There a lot of inexpensive wedding shower favor ideas that can make your wedding shower unforgettable.

Choosing the Right Wedding Shower Favor
It important to plan out your wedding favors early on to avoid the rush. If your wedding has a theme, your wedding shower favors should follow that theme. Remember that your wedding shower is a prelude to your wedding celebration so you need to make sure that you do not veer off course from your theme. For instance, if you are planning to walk down the aisle in a medieval setting, you should choose wedding favors that are related to your medieval theme.

The colors of your wedding shower favors should also match the colors that you will use during your wedding. Don't worry, there are so many specialty stores both online and offline that offer thematic wedding favors so you will not have any problems finding the things that you need. Besides, if you run-out of ideas, you can always call some of your friends and ask them for help. Your friends will be delighted to help in this area.

Once you have made up your mind about the kind of wedding shower favors that you will give to your guest, you may now set your budget. Why should you set your budget only after choosing the kind of wedding shower favors that you will give to your friends and family members? Although it is alright for you to set your budget before you even start thinking of what wedding favors to give to your guests, it is still a good idea for you to choose your wedding shower favors first before you set a cap on your budget.

Remember that the people whom you will give the wedding shower favors are very important to you so you need to be sure that you are giving them the best. Just make sure that you do not get carried away when it comes to choosing wedding favors. It's not a good idea to spend a fortune on these things.

Considering A Creative Wedding Photo Idea

You are not a boring person. You love unique and creative ideas. In every aspect of your life you try to be creative, innovative, and simply unique. And now you are getting married. Whether you are marrying the man or woman of your dreams, you know that he or she is in love with you because you are unique and creative.

So why should your wedding be bland and traditional? Why should your wedding photos look like everyone else's wedding photos? Instead, come up with a creative wedding photo idea to wow your guests and your wedding party. A unique wedding photo idea is something that you will remember for the rest of your life and cherish as you look at the pictures for years to come.

Just How Creative Can I Be?
You may be wondering just how creative your wedding photo idea can be. After all, this is a wedding. Weddings are traditional by nature, and people expect to see certain things at a wedding. More likely than not, your parents and your future in laws will want some pictures of your wedding that are traditional. Even if you have a creative wedding photo idea or two, make sure that you still keep some traditional ideas.
For example, it would probably behoove you to still have a few pictures taken with the bride and groom and their respective families, grandparents, bridesmaids, and groomsmen. You will also want the traditional pictures of the wedding ceremony. Aside from that, however, you can begin to think of a creative wedding photo idea or two.

Backdrops as a Creative Prop
If you are having a themed wedding, think of a unique backdrop to use. Most photographers have easy access to backdrops and can bring one or two to the wedding location for photographs. If you are having a cowboy themed wedding, a creative wedding photo idea is to have a saloon backdrop brought in for your photos.

You could still take the traditional photos, but instead of having the wedding location for the background, you could have the saloon. If you are having a period wedding, you could have a castle backdrop for a medieval wedding or another time appropriate backdrop. Even if you are not having a theme wedding you can still have a creative wedding photo idea with a backdrop. You could instantly create the illusion of being on the beach with a beach backdrop or walking through the snow with a snowy backdrop.
There are many different creative wedding photo ideas out there. It is up to you and your spouse to determine which one you want to chose to make your wedding as unique as possible!

Visit A Bridal Salon For Stress Free Wedding Planning

Bridal salons provide more than gorgeous wedding dresses and bridesmaid gowns. Many bridal salons also have consultants that can help you plan your wedding from choosing invitations, the reception menu, flowers and photographers to deciding what kind of cake should be served.

It may surprise you to learn that working with a bridal salon can save you money. Most bridal salons have established relationships with a range of service providers and fees.

The average wedding, not including the rings or honeymoon, costs a bit over $25,000. The experienced consultants at a bridal salon can help you get your money's worth.

Wedding Attire

Of course the wedding consultant will help find the perfect wedding gown within your budget. Don't be embarrassed to be specific as to how much you want to spend. A range within a thousand dollars gives the most flexibility, say from $2,000 to $3,000 or $4,500 to $5,500.

In addition to providing guidance and input about the bridal gown, bridal salon consultants can also help you choose the bridesmaids dresses. It's not necessary to order them at the same time as the wedding gown, but selecting them gives each attendant time to get fitted. Arrange for the groom and groomsmen's tuxedos or other formal wear and you've completed the attire for the wedding party.

Don't forget accessories such as undergarments, shoes, purses, and hair ornaments. Seeing the entire wedding dress ensemble means you know exactly what you'll be wearing. It also means you'll save time because you won't have to do extra shopping.


You may decide that you'll choose the location of your wedding ceremony and reception yourself. But bridal salon consultants can provide a wealth of information and inspiration for unique wedding locations. Most will know which venues will fit the type of wedding and reception you have planned.

They will also know which allow offsite caterers and which have a policy that only in-house prepared food to be served. Bridal salon consultants can also give you a good idea of what kind of deposit is expected. And perhaps, most importantly she'll know which venues take pride in putting together the wedding of a bride's dream, and which have a one-size-fits-all, wedding assembly line mentality.


The reception is one of the major expenses of a wedding. It's confusing to have to choose between a sit down full service meal, a buffet or perhaps just appetizers. It may surprise you to learn that a buffet may cost as much as a served meal because guests have a tendency to self-serve themselves much more than they will eat.

Talk to your bridal salon consultant and see what she or he has to say about menu planning. For example, you might be convinced that a three course meal: salad, entrée, and dessert is your only option because it's the only one the caterer brings up.

But an experienced bridal salon consultant knows that dessert isn't really necessary because you'll be serving your guests wedding cake. So why not substitute appetizers for the dessert or a pricier entrée? She also knows that having a waiter pass the appetizers on a tray ends up costing less money than self-serve.

Many bridal salon consultants can also help out when it comes to determining how much alcohol to buy for the wedding. Many brides and grooms make the mistake of underestimating how much their guests may want. Weddings are parties, and even people who don't normally imbibe will drink at a wedding. She'll also know that unopened bottles should be returned for credit, that house branded liquors are the better option than premium, or recommend that only wine, champagne and beer be served.


Flowers are an integral part of any wedding. Talk to your bridal salon consultant and see if she can recommend a bridal bouquet that best complements your dress and wedding theme. She or he has a good ballpark knowledge of what different types of flowers cost, as well as their season and availability. Your bridal salon consultant may even be able to suggest a reputable vendor.

Unload the Stress

Working with a bridal salon consultant can make the entire wedding planning process feel a lot more manageable. The experts at bridal salons are accustomed to dealing with brides who may feel a little frazzled or out of their depth.

They’ll take the time to understand your ideal vision, help you stay within your budget, and offer creative input and ideas that you may have never even considered. Take advantage of their years of experience and wealth of knowledge. Visiting a bridal salon ensures that you’ll get the dream dress you’ve always wanted, but it’s also a great way to tackle the million other details associated with wedding planning.

Are Wedding Cupcake Trees Really Less Expensive Than Traditional Wedding Cakes?

Many couples today are opting for wedding cupcake trees in place of traditional wedding cakes in order to save time and money and add a little convenience to the cake serving portion of the reception. Since Wedding cupcakes don't have to be sliced up since each cupcake is an individual serving in itself. And since each is a miniature wedding cake on its own, guests can choose to take them home as favors and eat them later.

There is such wide array of tiered designs, tree stands and decorations that wedding cupcake trees can be as extravagant or as simple as you would design a traditional wedding cake. Also, each cupcake can be decorated to look like a miniature wedding cake on its own.

So are wedding cupcake trees really cheaper than traditional wedding cakes? Not always. They can actually cost about the same or even more than a traditional wedding cake because they may end up being more work, especially if you want the same decorations on each cupcake as you would a wedding cake.

The cupcakes may cost less to begin with, even as little as a buck or two each if you do them yourself. But since each cupcake would be considered a serving, it could still cost you up to $3.25 or more each. And obviously you don't want the same type of cupcakes you'd have at a birthday party.

So now each cupcake is the work of a larger cake, but on a smaller scale, individually and multiple times, instead of decorating one large cake or a few cake tiers once. And then if you want additional things like fancy cupcake liners or special fondant icing, it adds more cost to the whole project.

Setting up a Wedding Cupcake Tree - Convenience or Costly?

Once the cupcakes are delivered, esigner charges for setting up wedding cakes, it may cost you just a little more to set up a lot of cupcakes. There could be a little more involved to neatly arranging a lot of little cakes onto a stand than arranging a few tiers of larger cakes.

If you are going to get charged a set-up fee, though, you can always ask your bridesmaids or family members to help arrange the cupcakes before the reception instead and save a little money there.

Selecting Your Champagne Flutes

It's upon you. It seems like only yesterday he proposed. The clock is ticking and you still don't know what to give your guest. Getting married can be the best thing that happens to a woman. She has dreamt about it from the moment she could spell wedding dress. But the planning is exhaustive and demanding. Fretting over details can take away from that special moment. One of those major details is a Thank You gift to your friends, family, and guest. Should you get personalized shot glasses? Maybe not, your mother-in-law to be would probably frown on it. What about champagne flutes? That doesn't sound like a bad idea. There are so many companies that offer a wide offer a wide range of personalized options to choose from. This is just the thing any bride needs to commemorate that special day. Your guest will have a little piece of the magic you experienced the day you wed.

These flutes have a bit of history to them that you will find interesting to say the least. Here are some facts.

Champagne glassware in French is called Flute a Champagne. It's a stem ware that is tall and narrow with a bowl at the top. These bowls were designed to retain the carbonation that is a distinct feature of champagne. This allows for the carbonation to scatter more rapidly. Some people wonder why these glasses have stems. Stems are featured on glassware to assist in maintaining the temperature of the liquid. So it is intended for you to hold the glass by the stem and not the bowl. Ever wonder about those little bubbles that rise to the top of the stemware? That's what you would call nucleation. They help form the bubbles you see. If there is too much nucleation this will in turn cause the champagne to get flat quicker, kind of like soda. The smoother the glass the less nucleation and the more bubbles you will taste in the champagne.

There isn't a more refined and classy gift you can give to your wedding guest and friends that personalized champagne flute.

Wedding Dress History

In reality, inside the grand scheme of things, the tradition isn't even all that old. The white wedding dress of these days is deep-seated tradition, and for quite a few is worn to signify virtue as well as uphold tradition. Millions -- the truth is billions -- of women all over the globe begin thinking about the best white wedding party gown prior to they have even found the ideal partner.

Britain is a place that's rife with traditions and legends, so it really is little wonder that the tradition in the white wedding party dress was started by the English Monarchy. It was the wedding party of Queen Victoria that spawned the interest and popularity of white wedding party dresses as we know them these days.

Queen Victoria married Albert of Saxe in 1840, and wore what would then have been considered a flamboyant white gown. Needless to say, this did not start the tradition immediately; even so, several females saw this as a statement of class and fashion, and copied the Queen by also having married in white.

The white wedding party dress in those days had nothing to accomplish with being virtuous -- it was all about wealth. Receiving married in a white, extravagant gown was a sign that you just could afford to buy a dress which you would never be able to wear again simply because of its type and colour (whites were not simple to clean in those days as they are today!).

Certainly, females still continued to be married in various colours and styles of dress -- it absolutely was only the vain plus the wealthy that insisted on white to follow in the footsteps on the wealthy Monarch. Nonetheless, during Edwardian times, the white wedding party dress once much more soared to new heights of popularity, as Coco Chanel unveiled its new knee-length white wedding dress, complete with extravagant train.

Even so, with the depression that followed Planet War I plus the approach of World War II, numerous girls continued to make do with whatever kind of dress they could afford, and this went on for decades. Some women would marry in a short white informal wedding dress, which could then be dyed and used as an everyday dress. Again, it absolutely was only the fabulously wealthy that could really afford to splurge on an elaborate gown.

Nevertheless, from the 1950s onwards, as the planet watched Hollywood stars, royalty and members of high society get wed in stunning white gowns, the tradition of white became signed and sealed.

Luckily, legend and folklore has given way to individuality in recent years, and brides now take pleasure in receiving married inside the colour of their alternative. Both celebrities and everyday girls have injected their wedding party dresses with their own sense of fashion and personality, and we have seen ladies marrying in colours ranging from delicate ivory to deepest red and even black.

Royalty and high society still tend to favour the tradition of marrying in white. Even so, since simply wearing a white wedding party gown can no longer mark their stature due for the availability in the white wedding party dress, they now do this by infusing the dress using the most costly silks, pearls and material feasible, producing it worth a king's ransom by the time it can be finished.

Luckily, we don't all have to pay a fortune to look stunning for our wedding day, and there is now so much alternative in colour, type, material and design that we can get married looking just the way we want -- and without having to sell all of our worldly possessions to complete so!

The Internet is a excellent source for wedding party dresses. You can take pleasure in excellent value for your money and unrivalled choice, enabling you to achieve just the look and theme which you want for your special day. Whether you want a full-on white gown with all the trimmings, a easy and elegant ivory dress, an informal yet classy wedding party dress or something totally unique in the rich, vibrant colour, the Internet will offer you with access to the ideal alternative.

Introducing one of our hottest lines ~ Unity Sand Ceremony Supplies

The Unity Sand Ceremony is a novel alternative for the popular "unity candle ceremony" incorporated into many of today's weddings. The essence is to symbolize the union of "two into one". This sand version is not only beautiful and interesting but also more appropriate for an outdoor setting. With the addition of fresh flowers, these distinctive vases will make an intriguing addition to a home's decor.
  1. The Groom will commence by pouring a portion of the black sand into the central glass vase.
  2. The Bride will follow by pouring a portion of the white sand also into the central vase creating a layered effect.
  3. To complete the ceremony, the Groom and Bride simultaneously pour the balance of their sand into the central container.
  4. Following the wedding, the two outside vases can be used to display fresh flowers while the central vase will remain a cherished keepsake of your wedding day.
THE FAMILY SAND CEREMONY: A popular option to Invite your children to take part in the ceremony. Allow each child to choose a color of sand and pour it from a miniature nesting vase after step 2 from above.

The Perfect Tea Party

Tea Parties are fun to plan.  A hall that can seat your desired number of guests is required to be secured months ahead of time.  Best places to book are through your local historical society.  Try to find a museum, bed and breakfast or old Victorian home to set your scene.  Insurances and deposits are required.  If arranging through a historical location sometimes a donation toward the society is all you need to "rent" the space.  Be sure to investigate the type of exhibit on display during the time frame of your event so that you can incorporate it into your tea.  The establishment may also offer a tour as part of your event.  See if your location will provide helpers dressed in Victorian attire or secure costumes for your servers for more authenticity. 

An invitation sets the tone of your event.  Invitations cut out as a tea cups or Victorian floral designs are available from most invitation suppliers.  Be sure to include how you want your guests to dress on the invitation, as well as any associated costs and if guests are welcome.  Be sure to limit your guest list to your space size.  Popular ladies' teas request that you come appropriately attired in a dress and hat.  You may also request that your attendees wear white gloves.  Flowers make any ensemble more festive whether it is floral print clothes or an added flower pin to your lapel or handbag.  Tea as a unique Bridal Shower idea, Mother/daughter teas and children's teddy bear teas are also very trendy themes. 
In preparing your space for the event, eight top tables make for an intimate setting.  White or pastel color linen table cloths, chair covers, a floral centerpiece (such as flower arrangement made in a tea pot) and the perfect place setting is key.  A small cake or luncheon plate, a spoon, folded linen napkin, party favor and of course a china tea cup and saucer needs to be at each seat.  Tea accompaniments including cream,  lemon wedges and tiny sugar cubes with tongs should be available at each table along with a tray of cookies or an assorted finger sandwich platter.  There are many recipes available in books and online for the perfect tea party finger sandwiches.  Popular varieties include cucumber sandwiches, specialty jellies and jams on bread and sandwich salads such as egg and ham salad.  Your sweets platter can also include scones and mini pastries.  If the table is too wide, be sure to place two sets of everything so that reaching over the table does not become a messy issue for your guests.
When your guests arrive, they should be greeted with an atmosphere fragrant with flowers and the smell of delicious treats.  A costumed greeter should direct the guests to a table where they sign an elegant guest book, pick up their placecard and direct them to their assigned table.  Victorian era music or music from a live piano player should be softly heard the background.  Social interaction is the purpose of this event.  Encourage your guests to mingle and show off their fancy attire.
Guests may feel uncomfortable with the traditions of taking tea so making them feel welcome and educating them about a tea is paramount.  During the event a brief lecture prepared by the host or a person skilled in the art of serving tea should be made.  In addition to being an ice breaker, it should explain basic dos and don'ts of a proper tea.  As we are a nation not accustomed to teas, a simple explanation would be welcome to your guests.  Tea history, differentiation of a high tea and regular tea and tips such as where you place your napkin when you leave your seat may be interesting to your guests as well as appreciated advice. 
A gloved server needs to come around table to table to pour the tea.  As there are so many tea flavors available, the host needs to decide ahead of time what type(s) to serve.  Hot water may be poured and the guest select their own flavor from tea bag selections provided or the tea may already have been brewed and ready to pour.  A refilled tea pot gets placed back on the table for guests to serve their own should they desire seconds.  Apple juice can be substituted for children or guests who may not want tea.  Following the proper protocol reviewed and taking dainty bites is important during the tea.
Be sure each guest leaves with a party favor which was part of the original place setting when the guest arrived.  Elegant suggestions include a small floral nosegay, bookmark commemorating the event, a custom made pin, boxed pen or a simple box filled with a trinket, mints, chocolates or candies wrapped in floral print paper and tied with a bow.  Teas depending on your purpose and provided entertainment are usually a short event lasting from one to two hours.
Places where promotional products branded with the host's logo would work best include:  on the invitations, envelope embellishments such as wax seals, custom imprinted tea bags and sugars, cloth or paper napkins, imprinted favor and decorating ribbons, teddy bears, hand sanitizer, floral picks, and of course the favors listed above all which can all be found at

Trendy New Unity Set for Your Wedding Ceremony
by: sandscripts
The wedding concept of "Two becoming one" is now visually represented at marriages as a work of art by the use of clear glass vases and color sand. This new trend is great for marriage participants looking for an alternative to the unity candle set. Instead of uniting two smaller separate flames into one large candle, this trendy option unites color sand from each marriage participant's smaller vase into one beautiful sand art sculpture. The wonderful attribute regarding this method is that all family members can participate in the creation of the large sand masterpiece. The large center collection vase can be simple or ornate, monogrammed or blank. The smaller vases are filled for each family member who is participating in this simple beautiful memory creating ceremony. This hot new trend is a fabulous way to incorporate children into the wedding ceremony of their parents. Sand is available in many colors so participants can create a colorful display which represents the blending and unification of the two families. Couples can use this personalize this concept as they would like to create their own unique token of their special event. Another suggestion is that the smaller vases can also hold stems of flowers that when added together to the center vase during the ceremony become a gorgeous colorful bouquet. The use of sand however creates an everlasting keepsake of that magical day. Unity Sand Ceremony Sets also make an excellent Engagement or Shower gift.

Memorable Wedding Favors by Paul Darch

There are many ways to welcome your guests and show your appreciate their attendance. If the whole wedding party stays in one place, prepare a small treat and leave it at the front desk, so that people receive the gifts when they check in. If people are in various places before your reception, have the caterer place the wedding favor on the place settings. Your wedding day favors should be as elegant and unique as you are.

They can range from elegant bridal accessories, personalized engraved gifts, distinctive apparel and extraordinary favors, to make every detail of your wedding day unique and memorable. The average wedding lasts about four hours which doesn't leave couples much time to spend with their guests, many of whom may have flown in from across the country to help celebrate the big bash. So, choosing the essential wedding favors and wedding party gifts should be fun to create a lasting memory forever.

Two to four months before your special day, you should choose your gifts for the Maid of Honor, Best Man and other Attendants. The bride is responsible for gifts for her bridesmaids, which need not be expensive but should serve as a token for friendship, and as a remembrance of the wedding. A picture frame engraved with the date of the wedding, with a photo of the wedding party to follow or small pieces of jewelry are very nice gifts. Personalized gifts are always the best and traditional always works to provide the most unique and elegant wedding party ideas ever.

Also the groom should not forget the groomsmen. He also, of course, pays for his gifts to his groomsmen which might be something traditional such as a money clip, tie tack or cigar cutter. As with the bride's gifts to her bridesmaids, the most important thing is not the item itself, but the fact that it will remind the groom's friends of the happy day.

Surely you don't want a "cookie-cutter" wedding reception that could be anyone's. You want your guests to know that you thought about the details and chose elements that are special to you and your groom. You can personalize just about every aspect of your wedding day and your reception is no exception, so choose wedding favors that are unique, elegant and memorable and most of all, special to you. Have gifts engraved with your personal touch. You are only limited by your imagination.

You've planned for months, the people closest to you and your new husband are all in one place, and you've chosen a great meal to enjoy with great entertainment to follow. Your only job at your wedding reception is to smile, relax and have fun. Enjoy the party and we hope that you are the icing on the cake!

Enjoy the planning process and remember the famous quote from Walt Disney, the man who knows how to bring fantasies to life, "If you can dream it, you can do it".

Essential Wedding Favors is a company founded by Paul Darch and Tracey Spencer in 2006. Wanting to provide a bride and groom a source to find as much information about planning their wedding, inspired them to create a website dedicated to just that.

Create A Wedding Website Easily And Quickly
by IPRWire Staff Writer -
     Would you like to create a wedding website that will amaze and please your family and friends? At one time, this was a fairly complicated endeavor for most couples. In addition to having to know the coding language, they also had to know about graphic design and how to upload and maintain the files and pages, as well as handle a host of other issues. For many couples this was simply too much work and it took too much time. Of course, if they had the money they could hire someone to create a wedding website for them, but that often cost too much for the average working couple and did not address the issue of who would maintain the site once it was up and running. It is no wonder that so few couples were able to take advantage of this great idea. But that has all changed now. With advances in technology and with online companies who specialize in these types of projects, just about anyone can afford a fantastic site to showcase their happy event. One reason the prices have come down so much is that couples can now do much of the fine-tuning work themselves. Generally, a service will allow the couple to pick out the templates that they want to use, which saves the couple from having to hire a designer. These services also provide intuitive tools to easily customize the templates to fit their individual taste and personality. The couples get end results that are both professional and uniquely theirs…in minutes! In addition to the main pages, many of these service companies will also have templates that cover the vast majority of special needs for couples planning to marry. These might include such things as guest books, invitations, map pages containing directions to locations, gift registry pages, and even photo galleries for still photos and multimedia files. Because the majority of the hard work has already been done, the couple simply uploads what they want to share with others and can modify the pages as they see fit. It has become a very easy and simple process. In fact, it has never been easier to create a wedding website as it is today.

The Perfect Wedding Favor
by steve1

The perfect wedding favor captures that special moment. You want it to make people remember that day every time they look at it. There are three great ways to so. One is to to make that favor unique. It should stand out in peoples' mind and bring them back to that special day. The favor should trigger a rememberance every time it is looked at. The second way is to personalize the favor with the wedding date an names of the bride and groom. The third way, and what I feel is the most important way, is to make the favor useable(something that will not get thrown away.)

The favor that gets used(over time) will make people remember that wedding day and will be used as a keep sake. This is much better than the average favor that you see getting left on the table or thrown away.

The personalizing will also trigger peoples minds to remember the date and the names. This is important because after time, the memory of that day starts to fade and with the names and the date on the wedding favor, it's a great trigger to make people remember the wedding day.

By making the favor unique, it automatically stands out. It's different from others so it will be remembered longer. It will stand apart from the "normal" or "average" favor. This way, when looked at, it will spark rememberance of that specail day.

Remember to have fun and enjoy that special day!
