More Winter Wedding Inspiration

I couldn’t resist searching for some more Christmas/winter wonderland inspiration!

There are so many magical ways to create a winter wonderland wedding and an opportunity for something a little more unique to every wedding day favours. There is also the benefit of being able to pick up some bargains in the Christmas sales for your wedding, such as fairy lights, everything sparkly, decorations etc.

Confetti have some beautiful Christmas wedding favours and decorations and they are currently offering free delivery until 22nd December.

These baubles from Celebrations Plus would make a wonderful favour/thank you gift for children!

Unique DIY Favours

Whilst out Christmas shopping I found these lovely little boxes on the craft market – they each contained a penny, a marble, a heart, an eraser, thread, and an elastic band. They also had a little poem in:

Penny- to make sure you're never broke
Marbles - to replace the ones you may loose
Safety pin - to help remind you to be safe
Eraser - to make all those little mistakes disappear
Elastic - to help you stretch beyond your current limits
Thread - to remind you that friendship ties our hearts together
Heart – because you’re always loved

I bought a couple as stocking fillers but thought they would also make lovely wedding favours – obviously you could put in anything you like but a very cheap but personal and unique wedding favour! They came in a little brown box with an embellishment on top so they would be very easy to make yourself. The little brown boxes can be purchased for around 25p and embellishments don’t cost the earth either – usually around £1 for a pack of multiple embellishments.

Here’s some ideas for the boxes – just add embellishments/ribbon to match your colour scheme

DIY Wedding Tags

These can be used for so many things…favours, tags on flower-filled jars, name tags on glasses etc and there are many ways to create your own! You can customize the shape, size, font colour to suit your style.

You can download some free tag templates of all different shapes and sizes from scapbooking mad…print these onto cardstock or patterned paper to create your tags.

Invest in a tag punch –create the text on a word document, punch the tags around the text onto cardstock/patterned paper – voila your own printed tags! There are a million things that you could do with tag punches. Use an ink stamp or create photo tags to add to favours or even create individual photograph tags to hang on wine glasses for place names.

Add embellishments, ribbon and anything that matches your colour scheme/theme!!
