Build a Stellar Wedding Welcome Bag

by

Putting together a stellar Wedding Welcome bag can be trickier than it seems.  Between finding the right tote and trying to select the goodies, it can cause unexpected stress in wedding planning.   Trying to do it yourself and pull it all off on your own is even more stressful.  Luckily, a few custom labels can take the hassle and guess work out of coordinating the items in your bag.

A basic box is a great start and holds a ton of items.  Kraft and black paper make for a simple color scheme that is easy to coordinate.  These water bottle labels are waterproof and self adhesive, so they couldn’t be easier to use!   Small plastic bags are cheap and perfect for treats, plus they are easy to find at your local craft store.  Add scrapbooking paper and a favor label, like this one, and your guests will have a handsome snack.  Every good welcome basket has mints and booze, so don’t forget the mini wine labels and candy kiss labels.  With coordinating labels, the effort is minimal and the impact is massive!  Don’t forget the favor label on the top of the box to tie it all together!

Here, custom labels are the hero again, pulling all the items together for a coordinated container.  Use this label, typically used on a wine bottle, with a length of black and white ribbon on the front to create a dynamic looking gable box.  Dress up a basic water bottle with these custom labels.  Mini liquor bottles and soda mixer get a makeover with custom liquor and favor labels.  Tried and true spice labels designate hand wipes as “fresh and clean” and snacks as “favorites” to add a dose of personality.   Literally tied together with black and white yarn this attractive welcome bag is a cinch to create.  As for convenience, you can order your labels, gable boxes and treat bags all in one place…wedding bag: complete!

Lastly, is this stunning and modern wedding welcome tote.  Perfect for a swanky affair, this colorful label will let your guests know they are in for a great event.  Here, this wine label works overtime as both a bottle label and is used again as a door hanger.  To create a hanger like this for your bag, simply add a wine label to a length of sturdy card stock.  Next, use a 2.25″ round hole punch (like this one) at the top and you’re done!  We also switched up the use of this mini wine label to go on a cute square hang tag.  Snacks and the ever-important Tide pen are given descriptive spice labels.  Finally, the quintessential wedding welcome water bottle is beautified with these custom labels.

Encourage your guests to have a great time by including a mini hangover kit as well.  You know, hangovers last a lifetime, but memories last forever!  We made a fun kit here by including a little something for hydration, a little something for the head and a little hair of the dog.

 

Now that you’ve gathered your items and decided what you want to go into your bag, you’ve got to decide how to get it in the hands of your guests.  In the past, it was common to have the bags waiting for your guests at check-in.  Another alternative is to assemble your items, display them in a pretty way, and let your guests pick and choose what they’d like.  What may be work for you can turn into fun for your guests!

Gathered wedding welcome bag items

Wedding welcome bags are a quintessential way for you and your new Mr. or Mrs. to really show your personalities.  Don’t be afraid to be fun, playful or a bit tongue-in-cheek.  After all, this is just the start of your amazing festivities… ENJOY IT!!!

by

It’s here!  The holiday you’ve been waiting for: National Donut Day!  These round sweeties aren’t limited to breakfast anymore, in fact they’re the star of the show! So we’re celebrating our love of donuts with our favorite ways to package them for your guests.  The key to a beautifully packaged sweet is making sure your eyes are as happy as your taste buds.  That means simple wrapping, a ribbon and a custom label will be all you need to get the job done!

First up, we have this adorable DIY donut box.  Made from a fairly simple template like the one found here.  This box takes a bit of time,  but makes up for it with impact.  Add a custom label, like this one, and you have a perfectly precious party favor!

In this next favor, we used a similar donut label, but drastically simplified the packaging.  A basic glassine pastry bag isn’t only easy on your DIY skills, it’s also easy on the wallet.  At about $2 for 25 bags (find them here for  your next event) the price is hard to beat!

If you want to make it even easier, you can purchase these party sacks here in the same purchase as your favor labels.  Add a little shredded filler, bakers twine and this hang tag (more colors available in store) for your label and a few donuts on top and you’re good to go!

In this set-up we swapped the circle label and bag for a milk jar wrapped in a water bottle label (which fits perfectly!) and simple straw flag.  This is my kind of grab-and-go snack!  Find these water labels here to complete your next sweets festivity.  Don’t forget the paper straws!Milk and Donut Favor

If you don’t want your beautiful sweets hiding in a bag or box, this is a great option: a cellophane bag with a ribbon and pretty label.

Lastly, you happen to run out of donuts all together, this unique favor will send your guests away ready to sprinkle their next sweet endeavor with fun.

Customize Your Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

by

elegant themed rehearsal dinner ideaAh, rehearsal dinners for weddings. A rite of passage, right? Whoever says rehearsal dinners need to be the same-old same-old have it all wrong. Brides get special showers, guys get bachelorette parties, sure – but the rehearsal dinner can be a time for the bride and groom to come together before their wedding and celebrate who they are as a couple. A few simple touches can really make your event pop – both that day and in memory. Let’s take a look at some great ideas.

Pick a Rehearsal Dinner Theme

creative rehearsal dinner themeYou don’t need to go crazy here – just pick a theme that will help tie your event together and make it a bit more personalized. Some folks love everything farm and tractor related – go ahead and honor it (even a few farm related photos in some frames will do the trick). For the couple who loves little more than putting around on the local greens, incorporate their love of golf into the night. For the couple who spends most of their their time at the theater, plan a night with a dramatic touch.

Pick a Rehearsal Dinner Menu

rehearsal dinner menu idea
When it comes to serving large groups of people fast, think speed and quantity over quality! Make as much food as possible ahead of time, don’t be afraid of the grill or even placing a tall order with the local pizza shop. Instead of offering table service, offer different food stations that will make it easy for your guests to get the food they want without the hassle (for everyone).

Make it Personal

Find some creative ways to really personalize the decorations for this big day. It is, after all, the last day the bride and groom will spend before joining rings (and lives). Custom chocolates will be loved (and remembered) by everyone at the party – custom water bottle labels are always a fun conversation starter!

Gift Idea for Rehearsal Dinners

Rehearsal Dinners are typically a time when brides and grooms thank their bridesmaids and groomsmen with custom gifts that show how much they appreciate all of the help they received in tying the wedding together. Personalized wine bottle labels can take an ordinary bottle of wine and make it shine! Regardless of your price range, you can make custom mini bottles or larger bottles easily so they sparkle.
