Not planning the wedding you planned?

You just got engaged and have been busy dreaming up the most beautiful of weddings. You start out with one idea, one color, one piece of inspiration. From there it blossoms, you furiously pin pictures of wedding cakes, bouquets, table settings and color palettes. The theme evolves and before you know it, it’s nothing like initial idea you started out with….it’s SO much better! It’s all part of the wedding planning process.

When you go wedding dress shopping you often leave with something completely different than what you set out to find. And that’s ok!

Send your guests home with a little potted plants or seeds they can grow themselves. They will think back fondly on your wedding as they watch them flourish.

Wedding favours are a personal choice, some couples opt to do them, while others do not and there is no right or wrong answer. If you choose to have them, make guests feel like they are taking home a little piece of you and your special day. Favours are more than just a keepsake, they can often act as dessert, decor, tie in colours and as you will see below, they can even double as stationery!

Fun Fact: in my experience the wedding favours least likely to be left behind at the end of the night….are the ones you can eat!
