Wedding favors

Hey Everyone!

It's another rainy Friday in Tulsa, surprise, surprise. This weather has put a damper on many events, but I don't want to focus on that, lets keep positive and talk about something fun. Today I found this great article, by BuzzFeed, with 42 ideas unique and useful wedding favors. This article is handy, because most of us have acquire wedding favors that have no particular "use". If you are like me, you'll most likely keep the wedding favor (probably in a box labeled "random stuff" stashed up-high in a closet lol), because of its sentimental value. Eventually you'll toss it, because TLC's show, Hoarding: Buried Alive, has scared you into cleaning your whole house lol. All jokes aside, wedding favors should be useful and functional, that way your guests will always remember your wedding.

Check out the article at BuzzFeed for these amazing ideas!

Here are some of my favorite ideas mentioned in the article:

Rainy day Weddings


Am I the only that's incredibly tired of all the rain Tulsa has been getting? I bet I'm not, but life must go on and so do weddings. Here are a few tips to keep you and your guests dry and happy:
1. If there is a chance that rain will crash your outdoor wedding, create an alternative plan and let your guests know ahead of time.
2. If your wedding is outdoors, rent a tent to keep everything and everyone nice and dry.
3. Bring extra umbrellas and towels for your guests.
4. Have blow dryers and different toiletries in your venue's bathroom just in case your guests need to freshen up.
5. Pick a venue that accommodates indoor and outdoor weddings in case things need to be moved inside.
6. Welcome the use of rain boots.

Embrace the rain! It'll make for beautiful pictures :)

Are cake toppers out of style?

Hey Everyone!

I was looking at wedding pictures today when I noticed something strange; all the cakes pictured had no traditional cake toppers. Most cakes had either flowers, a monogram, or nothing at all at the top. This got me thinking: are traditional wedding cake toppers out of "style"? Turns out this custom was largely dominant in the 1950s, where the topper represented the concept of togetherness, but it is now used less often. Today people use the little figurine toppers to indicate shared hobbies, passions, or just to get a good laugh from theirs guests. Checkout these hilarious toppers I found on Pinterest! I love the new spin to this older tradition!
