When wedding planning, adding those little details after confirming the big stuff can be lots of things - time consuming, stressful, expensive... need I go on?
Here's a list of seven items to get your started in planning for these easy and inexpensive wedding awesomes :)
1. Hotel Guest Bag Tags
Most hotels will offer the option for you to leave guest welcome bags at the front desk that they will pass out as people check in. I know that as a guest, I just love this. Seeing what the bride and groom came up with to out in the bags is fun, and at time can be very helpful! You'll get what I mean once you skim over this short list of items to possibly include in a guest's hotel welcome bag:
*Bottled Water *Candy Bar *Mini Toothpaste *Mini Mouthwash
*Crackers (Cheese Nips) *Rice Crispy Treat *Custom Crossword Puzzle
*Facial Tissues *Floss *Directions To Wedding Festivities
*Local Brochure or Map (fun things to do in the area) *White Cake Pop
2. Wedding Party Itinerary
Are you nervous about keeping your wedding party caged and in a certain area? This can be highly desirable when it comes time to take pictures at a certain time, or right before the ceremony starts. Groomsmen especially tend to wander to parts unknown.
We handed out this half-page wedding party itinerary during the rehearsal dinner the night before and our besties seemed to be super thankful. Think about it, I know I like to know what's going on and when, so its safe to assume your wedding party will too.
3. Social Media #Hashtag Sign
As you've probably noticed, couples hashtags are all the rage. Similar to when the media creates a conjoined name for celebrity couples - aka "brangelina" or "Bennifer".
Wedding hashtags allow your guests to post pics that you can later navigate to all in the same place. I also sell these custom wedding signs in my online etsy shop.
4. Table Numbers
My mom is the goddess of crafts, thus it was easy for her to come up with and create these beautiful pink and silver table numbers. She found the square mirrors and mini acrylic easels at Hobby Lobby. She's a Stampin' Up! Senior Demonstrator so the rest of the products are from the SU! catalogue.
- Glitter Cardstock
- Light Pink Cardstock
- Pink Ribbon
- Small Square Mirrors
- Mini Acrylic Easels
5. Seating Chart
Again, born from my craft goddess mother, this DIY wedding banner was made with cardstock, ribbon, and double stick tape.
6. Thank You Table Cards
Many Couples are beginning to create thank you notes for their guests to come across at some point during the wedding. We added some color to our place settings with these pink thank you notes centered on every napkin.
7. Directional Signage
More and more couples are opting out of the traditional wedding guest "book" and choosing some unique platform instead. We chose a wooden tray that guests could sign with permanent marker and that we later covered with a piece of glass.
The point is, having a sign as simple as "Please sign our guestbook" lets people know that whatever the signable item is, is in fact your guestbook, and also encourages them to sign.
This funny restroom way finding sign is available for purchase online in my etsy shop.
