Fab fridays: Creative & Edible favors

Hi fabulous fridays are back! For today's article inspirations: we thought we'd like to share with you on creative bits & edible favors for your wedding prep! enjoy!

Credits to junebugweddings

Anyone who knows us, knows that we have the loooove for food. A lot. A whole lot. That's why  we get so excited for ideas on edible wedding favors that go beyond traditional chocolates. Here are some of my thoughts on how to go fantastically foodie for your wedding favors. Yum!

  •  Go local. If you have a lot of guests coming from out of town, or if you are particularly enamored with the area where your wedding is taking place, incorporating local produce or food specialties can be a super fun way to get your guests excited about your city. Working with local resources can also be a fabulous way to help "go green" with your wedding planning. In Seattle I might give out my favorite locally roasted coffee inside tins decorated with custom labels, pretty little espresso cups filled with chocolate covered espresso beans, or coffee flavored desserts like these homemade coffee truffles and rich espresso fudge brownies from Martha Stewart. I might also go for delicate bags of locally grown cherries or bottles of wine produced in Eastern Washington.

  • Share your favorite things. Do you love, love, love malted milk balls, but your fiance prefers red licorice? Fill two little truffle boxes with a bit of each, tie them together with ribbon and add a tag with a description of why they're your favorites. If you love sweet and he loves salty, have a snack buffet filled with candy, chocolates, pretzels, popcorn, etc. for people to scoop into little bags on their way out the door. If your family has a secret recipe that you have grown up loving, even if it's unusual, give out little portions and explain where it comes from and why it's so special. I've seen one bride give mini jars of her mom's famous strawberry jam, and another give out jars of pickled veggies that she and her fiance made together.

  • Give them food to go. Every time I've received a party or wedding favor that is meant to be eaten later that night, or the next morning for breakfast, it has always seemed so thoughtful and I've always been grateful to have it. Give your guests a little bag filled with delicious granola, scones or pastries from your favorite bakery along with some fancy tea for a breakfast favor. If you think your wedding is going to go well into the wee hours, prepare a midnight snack favor- try a little box with Krispy Kreme (or other local) donuts or your favorite late night snack food to revive their energy after hours on the dance floor.

Thursday Heelsday - Pick the right wedding shoes

Our closets are filled with footwear of all kinds, from sexy stilettos and cute ballet flats to cosy winter boots and comfortable old running shoes.
We never seem to find it very hard to find a gorgeous new pair of shoes… until it comes to looking for shoes for our wedding day. Then it gets a little more difficult!

These shoes not only have to fit and make our feet look gorgeous, but they have to go with the dress, be comfortable enough to wear all day and be in theme with the wedding location and season. Nowadays most brides are also looking for shoes they can wear again. So how to choose? Here are a few of the hottest trends around.

Platform heels

Super high heels made wearable with the addition of a platform at the front of the shoe are bound to be a hit with petite brides wanting to stand tall on their big day. Very fashionable at the moment, these shoes are not for the faint hearted or for anyone who is not used to wearing high heels. Even if you are a stiletto veteran, these may take some practice! They look fantastic with shorter cocktail dresses as legs look like they go on for miles, and with very long dresses to give the illusion of extra height. They are not the most comfortable of shoes to dance in however, and are not practical for outdoor venues where they will likely sink into the soft ground.

Cute flats

The priority for many of today’s’ brides is to have as much fun as possible on their wedding day, and this means being comfortable. You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort however as there are plenty of beautiful flats out there nowadays. From simple ballet pumps to embellished sandals, there is plenty to choose from whether you want them as your main wedding shoes or as a spare pair for when your feet get tired from wearing heels! Flats are also great for beach weddings and garden parties, as you are unlikely to trip in them.

Embellishment

From simple flower clips to extravagant ribbons and bow, from soft fabric twists to glittering brooches, feathers and Swarovski crystal designs embellishments are big news in the world of wedding shoes. The growing popularity of shorter wedding dress styles means that shoes are grabbing centre stage and becoming more extravagant.

Colour

It’s your wedding,  so you should wear head to toe white, right? Not necessarily! Just as dresses in colours other than white are gaining a foothold (from pastel hues to red and even black), so are shoes in various shades. You can go for a subtle pastel tone, a bright fruity colours or sexy metallics – whatever colour you fancy, there  will be the perfect shoe for you. The great thing is, if you are going for a traditional white dress any colour will go, and will add an offbeat, modern edge to your wedding outfit.
 


The basic rule for wedding shoes is… there are no rules!
You can wear whatever shoes you want.

We do have a few tips on choosing your trend wisely however.

  • **Remember to try the shoes on with your dress. They might look perfect in the shop, but then be the wrong style or colour when you actually get them home.
  • ***Also remember to wear them around the house before your wedding day to soften the material and prevent blisters.
  •  New shoes can also be very slippery on the bottom, so try sanding the soles with rough sandpaper or scoring them with a pair of scissors to reduce the risk of taking a tumble.
  • Most of all, get a pair of shoes you love and that you can walk in, and you are bound to look and feel great even after being on your feet all day at your wedding. Not only that, but you will have a great pair of shoes to wear again and again!

Creatives Tuesdays - DIY Cupcake Liners garland

When we stumble cross this cute idea, it immediately reminded me of the doily garland (yet to be featured) that we made for our wedding. What a great way to add some color and texture to a party or shower and use some of those leftover cupcake liners. Every time I buy decorative liners, I am inevitably left with a small stack in my cabinet that never get used. Not anymore.
Here is a lovely tutorial that walks you through making the purely cupcake liner garland without flattening them. The one below incorporates fabric, tulle, and ribbon along with the cupcake liners – giving it a bit more texture. For this garland you will most likely require more wrappers (or fabric) to prevent the garland from hanging like this.

IB#72: Classic victorian

Hi loves! There's something about this palette that keep us coming back at em'... its the sexiness... maybe.. its the romantic feeling... maybe.. perhaps.. its the classic aura surrounding the whole theme..
For today we still keen on exploring these sunset palette.. and more gentle colors are being put in this theme.
If you have the hots for old classic victorian weddings; we simply recomend this wonderful theme!
Definitely keeps you swayed at all times...

Mood: Swayed, romance, victorian, gentle, sweet sunset, classic aura, sexiness
Season: Autumn, summer, spring
Colors: Apricot, atomic tangerine, tangetine, dark salmon, peach, peach-orange, peach yellow, sunset, pink orange,

Fab fridays: The invitation Etiquette

1. When to Send Wedding Invitations

Get organized about a month before your desired send-out date. This should be six to eight weeks before the wedding, allowing your guests adequate time to respond and ensuring that you will get a reliable head count a week or two before the event. The address on a wedding invitation should be handwritten; printed labels are not appropriate (though calligraphy done by computer directly on the envelope is gaining popularity and acceptability).

2. Do I Need a Calligrapher?

Depending on your handwriting and the level of formality of your wedding, you may want to have your envelopes inscribed by a professional calligrapher. (To find one in your area, ask your stationer or wedding planner for recommendations.) You'll have to get your envelopes to the calligrapher at least two to three weeks before you need them; some calligraphers require even more time. Also provide her with a neatly printed guest list, complete with full addresses and social and professional titles (Mr. or Doctor, for example). Compiling the list, as well as making phone calls to parents or friends to acquire or confirm addresses and spellings, can take some time, so don't wait until the last minute to get started.
Alternatively to save cost; you can print the guest lists names on easy-place stickers using Caligraphy font or scout for someone who has a fabulous handwritting!

3. The Rules for Address Etiquette

Though etiquette for addressing and assembling invitations has relaxed, there are still some requirements, which we've outlined on the following slides (we've also included a few modern interpretations for more casual weddings). "The little things do matter," says Dorothea Johnson, an etiquette expert  "When a couple uses the appropriate honorific and writes out an address in the correct way, it shows they've put thought into it." And when your guests receive your invitation, expertly assembled and addressed, there will be no doubt that you have done just that.

4. Names and Titles

Your guests' names should be written in full on outer envelopes -- no nicknames or initials. Use the appropriate social titles as well, such as addressing married couples as "Mr. and Mrs." If a man's name has a suffix, write "Mr. Joseph Morales, Jr.," or "Mr. Joseph Morales IV"; "Junior" can be spelled out on a more formal invitation. However, it is the different case based on our society culture: big titles such as Datuk, Datin, Tan Sri, Toh Puan, Datuk Sri, Tun etc. Be sure to always include "Yang Berbahagia" or "Y. Bhg" for short.

5. Addresses

Spell out all words in an address on your envelopes. Rather than "St.," "P.O. Box," and "Apt.," use "Street," "Post Office Box," and "Apartment." It is ok to put "Jln" cos we all know it stands for 'Jalan' but put in full for "Bt, Bkt, Blk" which is more appropriate: "Batu, Bukit, Block" This  also applies to city and state names as well; instead of abbreviations, "Jhr bhru, Klntn, Slgor "write full name Johor Bahru, Kelantan, Selangor

6. Return Addresses

Write out all words here, too. The preferred place for printing the return address is on the envelope's back flap. Traditional etiquette called for blind embossing, or colorless raised lettering, for wedding invitations; the idea behind this was that guests would get their first glimpse of the fancy engraving on the invitation itself.
Moreover there are some invites which includes "reply cards" which is much convenient as guests can Rsvp by ticking (yes/no) and mail it back to the sender. These reply cards are complete with return address & some senders also includes stamps too!

7. Address Variations for Married Couples

Informal
To some couples, omitting wives' first names feels too old-fashioned; including the first names of both husband and wife after their titles is appropriate. The house number, even though it is less than 20, can be written as a numeral for a less-formal feeling. And in keeping with a more personal style, the couple are addressed by their first names on the inner envelope. (Eg: Mr & Mrs Anthony Lim)
Different Last Names
When a husband and wife have different last names, the wife's name is traditionally written first. Connecting the couple's names by the word "and" implies marriage. For an unmarried couple that lives together, names should be written on separate lines without the word "and." On the inner envelope, both are addressed by their titles and respective last names.(Eg: Mr Anthony Lim & Ms Grace Loh)

8. Address Variations for Families

With Children, Formal
This outer envelope is identical to that of a couple without children -- its writing, which is for the purposes of the post office, should be as simple and clear as possible. On the inner envelope, the name and title of each invited guest in the household is written out. A boy under the age of 13 is "Master," not "Mr." Girls and young women under age 18 are called "Miss." (eg Miss Lynette Lim)
With Children, Informal
Parents' first names are both used on this less traditional version of the outer envelope ("Post Office Box" is abbreviated as well). For the inner one, the parents' and children's first names are written without titles. Since they are young siblings, the word "and" (which implies marriage when used with adults' names) linking the children's names is acceptable.

9. Address Style for Single Guests

For a single woman, either "Ms." or "Miss" is appropriate; many people find the former preferable. The guest's name is the only one that appears on the outer envelope. On the inner envelope, however, write the guest's name followed by "and Guest." If you know whom he or she will be bringing, it's more personal to include that person's name, on a separate line. 

10. Outer and Inner Envelopes

Sending out an invitation in two envelopes ensures that each guest will receive a pristine envelope, even if the outer one has been torn or soiled in the mail. Still, the two are not necessary; you may omit the inner envelope if you wish. The outer envelope includes all of the information the postal service needs for delivery. The inner envelope should have the names of the invited guests in the household (including children, whose names do not appear on the outer envelope).

11. Assembling the Invitation

All enclosures should be printed in the same method and on coordinating papers; here's the order in which they should be stacked to go in the outer envelope. The invitation is on the bottom, print side up. A sheet of tissue paper (originally used to prevent smearing) can be placed over it. Stack all other inserts, such as a map, reception card, and reply card, on the invitation in order of size (smallest on top). The reply card should be under its envelope's flap; this envelope should be preprinted with the mailing address, and should be stamped as well. Insert everything into the inner envelope with the print side up, so that when guests open the envelopes they will see the lettering. (The same rules apply with a single-fold invitation, where the print appears on the front. For a French-fold, or double-fold, invitation, which has the print inside, all enclosures go inside the card.) Slip the unsealed inner envelope into the outer envelope with the names facing the back flap.

12. Postage and Handling

Bring a completed invitation to the post office to have it weighed; many require postage for at least two ounces, which usually exceeds the cost of a first-class stamp. Have a reply card and its envelope weighed as well, to ensure that you don't over- or underpay for that postage.

13. Hand-Canceling

You can take your invitations to the post office and request that they be hand-canceled. Machines print bar codes on the envelopes, but hand-canceling -- just marking each stamp -- keeps invitations neat and prevents damage that machines can cause.

Fab fridays inspirations - DIY your own dessert table

photo courtesy ruffledblog


In our opinion dessert tables are one of the best wedding trends of the moment. They’re tables full of dessert. And if that isn’t reason enough to love them they also are a great opportunity to enhance your wedding decorations and create a beautiful display.

To create true eye candy these are simply basic rules you oughta go buy:

1. Layers and levels
Vary the height and the placement of the desserts in order to create a mouth watering composition. Try serving some foods on platters, others on stands, and a few items in apothecary jars.
photo courtesy thesweetestoccasion

2. Variety
You’ll want to have a variety of treats for your guests to enjoy. Five is a good rule of thumb to go by.

credit photo doyoulovewhereyoulive
3.Grouping
Group similar items together. Don’t mix and match different desserts on the same plate or stand. Create large clusters of the same dessert next clusters of another dessert on a different level or display.

4. Monochromatic
Make your display truly powerful by keeping it all one color. Two at the most. By keeping it monochromatic you create mass, which makes your guests feel like a kid in a candy store.


5. Sign it
Tell your guests what they are about to get into! Reading the name makes it all the more exciting.

6. Celebrate!
An entire table of dessert! Create fun banners that invite guests to dig in. “Love is sweet, so have a treat!”


7. Decorate it, but not too much.
Your dessert displays should be decorative enough, so don’t overdo it with a lot of clutter. A simple garland or a little confetti is just enough to complete your edible display.
