Wedding Favor Ideas





You are planning a wedding and one of the tasks at hand is deciding if you want to invest in giving your guests wedding favors.  A wedding favor is a nice keepsake from the day or it can be edible as the possibilities are endless. It is nice if it’s something that your guests can actually use instead of a trinket that they leave behind or throw in the trash when they get home. You want to look for favors that are unique enough to be remembered, but to overall blend in with your tables.

Sometimes you get great wedding favors, sometimes you get a favor that perfectly matches the new couple but it’s not something you will ever use and it ends up in the bottom of the junk drawer.  The purpose of wedding favors іѕ tο thank уουr guests fοr coming tο уουr wedding. So why not try to make them memorable?

Wedding favors are a great way to make your guests feel welcome and appreciated. However, it's easy for this to get costly when you have a high guest count at your wedding. However, wedding favors don't necessarily have to break your bank. Here are a few ideas for fun and inexpensive wedding favors.

Some items you could consider that usually range in the $1 to $2 range are: silk fan with personalized label, Lemonade Mix,  Personalized Bottle Opener, Personalized Koozie, Personalized Water Bottles,  Personalized Sun Screen, seed packets, candles, soaps, sleep masks, custom M&M’s, book marks, coasters, shot glasses, mini champagne or wine bottles.

You can never go wrong with a dessert, either. A wedding-decorated cookie or brownie is always a sweet (literally), way to thank your guests, This tasty, yet inexpensive gift is one of the best tricks in the book. Including a card or note as well is a great way to personalize the gesture, and make sure that your guests feel appreciated! 

Decorated fortune cookies are unexpected but can be dipped in chocolate to match your color scheme. They are also unbelievably cute and can really give your guests a sense of your creative side. You can also have a customized message made for each of the fortunes. It is something little your guest can enjoy when they get home after celebrating the night away with you or the next day with their coffee.

I hope these unique wedding favors give you some inspiration while planning your dream day!

6 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Flowers

Weddings are incredibly complex to plan and it can take several months from start to finish. This is because there are hundreds
of small intricacies and details that can completely change the mood of your wedding, and it’s understandable that you want
everything to be perfect.


So in this article, we’re going to talk about just one very specific element; flowers. 


Make sure you have a budget


Flowers are expensive, especially if you’re buying a large number of them for a wedding. Always set a budget and stick to it!


Speak to your wedding planner


Your wedding planner will likely have experience with wedding flowers so make sure you communicate your ideas with them as early as possible.


Hire a reputable florist


Your wedding planner may have connections with florists that specialize in weddings.


Follow a theme


Never stray too far from a designated theme to help make your wedding decor consistent. Otherwise, you could risk creating a gaudy and strange
wedding theme.


Look for inspiration


Sites like Pinterest and wedding magazines are great places to look for inspiration. Gather all of the images that inspire you and share them with
your wedding planner or florist.


Choose flowers based on the season


If you want some instant inspiration then try and think of flowers that sit the season that your wedding will take place in.

Eastern Market Shed 3 ~ Chelsea + Stefano 5/24/19

Chelsea and Stefano were referred to us by another YTB couple that hosted their wedding at Eastern Market also. They were concerned with the logistics of the day and having everything set-up the way they envisioned before guest arrival.





The Ladies got ready in a suite at The Greektown Casino Hotel. 



The First Look at Detroit Public Library.




We love that the couple included their dog!






Beautiful ceremony music by Nuclassica and they also put on an amazing upbeat show during cocktail hour with two pop violinists.


All smiles as Chelsea and her Dad make their way down the aisle.


This moment got the best of Stefano as he saw his bride-to-be coming towards him. Very sweet!


The backdrop was stunning and created by The Rustic Root ladies. 


You're The Bride had lots to do for set-up and worked with the catering team from Two Unique and Event Theory Rentals to make sure every detail was in place. We had candlelabras, votives, table numbers, placecards, charger plates, signs, favors, linens, chairs and more.





The cutest succulents served as favors and placecards.




The cake was made by the bride's Aunt and was transported from Canada!
We were very happy to see that it made it across the border without any delays.


The day was awesome and we were so happy to be part of your memories. Thank you for choosing us to coordinate your dream day!
