Extra Pizazz toYour Wedding Day

Brides will always find themselves swamped with details and details and more details.  Sometimes those personal touches for your guests become overlooked. I see PLENTY of weddings and it is those little touches I just love!  In the midst of peak season I have hand picked a few of my favorite ideas for your guests to enjoy.


Paper straws in your main wedding color is always a hit, and they are the most simple thing.
Find them here. Pictures via.


Paper bags can be bought at your local grocery store at $1.50 for about 200 bags.
The favor bags above were a DIY project I did. We did around 180 bags. Hole punched, strung ribbon through and stamped each bag by hand = 4 hours of man time with 5 bridesmaids. Plus, pretty packaging makes the guest feel even sweeter!

Craft seating cards. this display was done by Bouquets of Austin for a recent wedding here at Vintage Villas (sorry for my fuzzy iPhone picture).  This was done by taking the glass out of a picture frame, pouring sand with in the frame, and placing each hand stamped seating card in the sand with succulents surrounding. Easy DIY if I say so myself!


Custom cake toppers are all the rage right now. etsy.com is a good resource for these cuties.
