On or Off the Registry?

24 Jul

It’s wedding season and I’ve had quite a few engagement parties, bridal showers and weddings to go to this summer.  With these parties comes gifts.  I always check the couples registry lists and see if there’s anything I’d like to purchase.  But then there are times I go “off the registry” and buy the couple something unique that they might not expect.

Sometimes I get them a gift certificate to their favorite place to eat and write a note saying to enjoy each other amongst all the planning.  Other times I have given gift cards for spa services so they can relax before the wedding.

Another idea I like is personalized champagne flutes or personalized wine glasses.  Gifting this with a bottle of champagne or wine has been my favorite engagement party gift.  The couple can use this for their actual wedding as well and in their home.

When you’re purchasing a gift for a wedding, do you always follow the registry?  Or do you have a fun gift idea?  Let us know in the comments.  I would love to hear from you!

#WeddingWednesday

16 Jul

Did you know today is #weddingwednesday?  Doing all things social media, I see all the trends and hashtags.  I have been married for quite some time and I started thinking about the trends when I said “I do” and realized how different they are now.

There was no Pinterest when I walked down the aisle.  I know how inspired (or “Pinspired”) I would have been with the truly amazing and creative ideas people pin.  At my niece’s recent bridal shower, I was in amazement at the ideas they came up with … all from Pinterest!  This Mimosa Drink station was probably my favorite from her shower.  Isn’t it adorable?

We’ve put together ideas for weddings on our Pinterest boards for you to get inspired from the engagement to the “I do” with ideas for invitations, color themes, favors and much more.   Tell us your creative ideas whether it was for your own wedding or if you helped plan someone’s bridal shower or wedding.  I’d love to hear what fun ideas you came up with!
