Ever wondered how to make those adorable pinwheels you have seen all over lately? Lucky for you the Wedding Chicks put together a great tutorial for you. Here are some great ideas for the use of pinwheels:
- Cupcake Toppers
- Line the aisles
- Props for Photos
- Hang throughout the space
- Ceremony backdrop
It’s great when couples decide to do this added touch for their guests. Of course we can say it is the ladies responsibility to wear comfortable shoes, but chances are they want to show up looking their best for a day you took forever planning. Who does not want a good looking crowd?
Having a slipper basket is a little gesture to show your guests that you are glad they came looking all spiffy but you now would like them to kick back and relax. The cost of the slipper basket is very inexpensive. Here are some reasons why you would want to have a slipper basket at your next event:
- You can further customize your details with a sweet message complete with your branding included
- Guests will remember that your wedding day was not all about YOU
- A packed dance floor all night!
- Slippers serve as a keepsake for the ones that wear them
Here are some ideas on how to create the perfect slipper basket:
- Buy a plain wicker basket for about four bucks and spray paint it the color of your wedding
- Purchase the mesh wine bags (perfect size for slippers) at your local dollar store
- DIY the tags with your message and monogram
- Purchase the slipper online at a wholesaler or a local craft store. They are usually a dollar as well
This little project can go a long way!
Next spring one of my clients will be getting married at a beautiful southern garden affectionately called Barnsley Gardens. They have these huge massive tress that would be perfect for pomanders to add a splash of color to the greenery. But then I remembered a fun wedding fashion statement a la Martha Stewart – Poms!
Although very easy to DIY it is much easier to just purchase them on site such as Etsy since the pricing is feasible. We ordered HUGE hot pink poms for my Pink Rocks bride (this is the name that I actually call her! You will have to stop by in May to see why). Here are other poms that Etsy seller Annemusingdesigns:
Here is my favorite flower of all time the peony as a paper napkin ring
I am in love with these feather Wishie Kissing Balls! How cute would these be with a pair of angel wings?
I am a lover of all things lucite because I believe they take your event to the next level. When I saw these lucite invitations on Etsy I knew I had to share.
I love how this seller added the nice touch of using the silk boxes for this invitation set.
Remember these little stirrers that also served as favors WAY back in the days? I swear my mother may have over 50 of them from all the weddings she attended in the past. They actually left the scene for several years. Source: Charming WeddingsSource: Favorsetc
But they are back and with a vengence! These little beauties did not only come back with different variations but with tons of style and personality.

Cupcake Flags are the little details we love right now. The best part about this little accent is that you can do them in various colors and shapes and can even add little details to them rather it be a little bling or ribbons.
Here is food for thought. If you are not ready to jump the cake ship and only use cupcakes at your next event, think about using them as only favors or even as placecards. The possibilities are endless when it comes to these little gems.

An alternative to the sign in frames and wish bowls at your event can be a sign in quilt. These custom quilts can be in your color of choice using as many pictures as possible. You can use an array of pictures from your engagement shoot, or make it more sentimental by using pictures from birth through your courting phase!
