As a bride, all you really need on you for your wedding day is your lip gloss (for touch ups) and phone (just in case someone really needs to reach you, or you can’t help ‘gramming). Other than that, there’s not much else you need to fit into a bag. And for the most part, you won’t be carrying around a clutch on your wedding day, but it helps to have your things in one place that either your bridesmaids would keep safe for you, or you can easily direct someone to get (“It’s in my really cute clutch over there.”). So speaking of really cute clutches, these bags from Kate Spade, made especially for weddings, are so perfect, you may actually want to carry it and have it for your photos!
Getting married can be a pretty exciting event in a person’s life, and if you’re like a lot of people it really is a dream come true. However, weddings also take a whole of planning just to execute, and thinking of what to give your guests as favors isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind during the planning phase.
You do want to make sure you guests have a good time and a memorable experience though. After all, some probably traveled to meet you and spent a fair amount of money on lodging and gifts to be part of your special day.
Use these ideas to help make sure your wedding guests get something special to remember your wedding day.
Succulents and Airplants
A lot of people offer small gifts at the end of a wedding. Some are edible like cookies or chocolates. Others are little keepsakes that remind guests of your special day. Succulents and airplants make for great decorative gifts that are lasting, and not to mention, easy to care for!
Personalised Wedding Magazines
Online wedding photos are becoming more and more common, and many people who just got married use them as a way to keep costs down. However, printed and personalised wedding magazines can be a great gift to send out in a familiar package. You’ll also give people a great way to look at and remember your wedding for years to come.
As an added benefit, you’ll be able to make sure you have real documentation of your wedding forever. Keep multiple copies and you’ll have something to look at and show off forever.
The groom loves airplanes so this bride has made it the theme of their wedding. We love that they had little paper planes as their escort cards, a propeller as their guest book, and even a gold plane that’s landed on their wedding cake. Not to be missed also is their unique looking bundt cake that looks almost too good to eat!

From their Photographer: Gary loves planes, so Bonnie tied them into every aspect of the wedding along with a vintage theme. There was plane/map escort cards, a propeller for guests to sign, and feather plumes in the centerpieces and bundt cakes. I loved all the thought that went into their unique details.
This Rancho Chiquita wedding has a soft and romantic color palette that pairs perfectly with the breathtaking views. Both the ceremony and reception was held outdoors in the beautiful Malibu setting, alongside palm trees and overlooking the hills. We love the ruffled ombre wedding cake that perfectly matches the palette of the bridesmaid dresses.
