Wedding Ideas

  • PWer Aug_09_Bride had a festive, colorful, and fresh 3-Tier square cake.


    Each tier was separated by a riser and then offset, which created an interesting 'twist' on traditional square stacking.  Bright teal ribbons, pink and orange Gerbera daisies, pink roses, and a delicate hand-piped design gave the cake a fresh and elegant summer look.

    The bride says:  The cake was frosted with Butter Cream frosting. There were 3 layers; 2 layers were Chocolate Baileys and the largest layer was Strawberries and Champagne. My favorite was the Strawberries and Champagne because the cake was light and the filling had fresh strawberries. It was nice and light for a summer afternoon wedding.

  • Recycle old votive candle holders by using them for small sweet vases. These tiny arrangements could be used for a bridal shower, wedding or reception. We filled ours with primroses, a popular bedding plant used in early spring. You can use any sort of small flower like violets, pansies, individual hydrangea blossoms, miniature daffodils, or muscari. We added labels to ours to use for place settings.

     

     

    You will need:

    Votive holders

    6-8 stems per vase

    labels

     

     

    Steps:

     

     

    1. To remove wax from votive holders, leave them in the freezer for several days.

    2. Be sure and wash the vases completely to remove any excess wax and dry thoroughly. 

    3. Write the name of each guest on a label and affix it to the vase.

    4. Fill each vase about half-way full of water.

     

    5. Cut the stems short so the blossoms rest against the side of the vase but be sure the stems are long enough to drink water. We cut ours straight from the plant and let them sit in lukewarm water for a few hours before arranging.

    6. Arrange the flowers the night before the event and keep them in a fridge, away from fruit if possible.

    7. If you are traveling with the vases, be sure and pack them tightly!

    The tiny arrangements could be used as place settings, favors or even centerpieces for a family style table. However you choose to display them, your guests will adore these sweet and flowery tokens of friendship!

  • So High Artist: John Legend Album: Not Provided Description Not Provided Lyrics
    Baby since the day you came into my life
    You made me realize that we were born to fly
    You showed me everyday new possibilities
    You proved my fantasies of love could really be

    Let's go to a place only lovers go
    To a spot that we've never known
    To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazing
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9

    (You've got me up so high) So high
    (My shoes are scraping the sky) So high
    (You've got me up so high) Oh
    (My shoes are scraping the sky)

    Maybe later we can go up to the moon
    Or sail among the stars before the night is through
    And when morning comes we'll see the sun is not so far
    And we can't get much closer to God than where we are

    We'll go to a place only lovers go
    To a spot that we've never known
    To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazing
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9

    (You've got me up so high) So high
    (My shoes are scraping the sky) So high
    (You've got me up so high) Oh
    (My shoes are scraping the sky)

    Ooh...yeah
    Ooh...oh hey

    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazin'
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9
    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    My shoes are scraping the sky

    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    My shoes are scraping the sky ooh...ooh...
    Yeah...

    This is how love's supposed to be
    This is how, this is how love's supposed to be, yeah
    Let's go to the moon baby, ooh
    Let's go to the moon baby, yeah
    Let's go, go, let's go to the moon baby
    So high...

  • Recycle old postcards by using them as place cards -- or go out and find some amazing postcards that mean something special to you! We mixed and matched ours for a colorful and interesting table setting.

     

     

     

    You will need:

     

     

    - A vintage post card for each guest. Ask parents and grandparents if they own any. Otherwise local antique shops, Ebay and Etsy are good sources. You can still find unused cards but postcards with messages on the back make for great table conversation. Try to pick cards that have at least one color in common.

     

     

    - Japanese masking tape. Available at Happy Tape.

     

     

    - Scissors

     

     

    - A nice pen

     

     

     

     

    Directions:

     

     

    Choose a focal color for your table (ours was red). Pick a masking tape in that color and then cut 8 inch pieces. On the end of each piece, cut a V so it looks like the end of a ribbon. Fold it over one side of the card. Write the name of a guest on each piece of tape once it's secured.

     

     

    Your guests will treasure these little pieces of history!

  • Atlanta Wedding Favors

    The wedding favor is a gift from the bride and groom that is given to guests to take home as a memory of their special occasion. Traditional options include candles and a decorative bag of Jordan almonds. However, more couples are incorporating their shared interests and city pride into their wedding favors.


     


    Fun Atlanta Wedding Favors

    Since Atlanta is home to one of the most iconic sodas in the world, a quirky wedding favor idea is to pay homage to the city's World of Coca-Cola. Atlanta natives may get a kick out of toasting with personalized keepsakes in the shape of Coca Cola bottles, featuring the faces of the newlyweds alongside customized messages. Since peach trees are plentiful in Atlanta, fresh peaches also make fun (and tasty) local Atlanta wedding favors. Perhaps you can incorporate a favorite sporting team, such as the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves, or the Atlanta Falcons.


     


    Unique Atlanta Wedding Favors: Do Me a Favor

    A wedding party isn’t a party without the proper wedding favors to send guests home in the right spirit. From personalized Frisbees to bottled water with a comical picture of the bride and groom, Do Me a Favor's owner, Regina Robinson, has been in the business for more than 10 years. The company not only supplies unique Atlanta wedding favors, but also designs custom invitations, theme party décor, handcrafted greeting cards, and helps with event planning. If you have a special wedding theme in mind, you might want to hire Do Me a Favor for more than just the take-home keepsakes.


     


    Personalized Atlanta Wedding Favors: Escape Concepts 

    Escape Concepts recognizes the ever-changing trends of wedding favors and they supply in-demand items, like disposable cameras. Choose from a range of decorative camera options, including butterflies, cherry blossoms, double hearts, and daisies. You can even select personalized cameras to decorate tables, creating the perfect keepsakes. Popular favors for Atlanta weddings include personalized items, such as lollipops, hard candy, and chopsticks.

    The Power of Photo Keepsakes

    A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Spread the love by choosing personalized photo keepsakes as your wedding favors. The possibilities are endless, which include blending bride and groom baby pictures, sharing engagement photos, or showing off your silly side. There are also plenty of options for displaying your images, including glass clocks, paperweights, coffee mugs, and photo puzzles.
