Vintage Wedding Favor Bag, Do It Yourself Wedding Favor

Moonlight Romance Favor Bag

 

Sending your guests home with a Wedding Day Favor is a wonderful idea. Give them a souvenir to remember the wonderful time they had on your special day. Understandably at this point in the wedding planning the budget is probably getting a bit tight. Perhaps it is time to gather all of the Bridesmaids, Mothers, Grandmothers and crafty types to a pre-nuptial lunch and favor making day.  Here is an idea for making a charming, and affordable Vintage Wedding Favor Bag DIY gift that will be coveted by your guests.
……………………………………………………………………………….

Gather all the materials for your favor bags project in advance of the luncheon.
Favor bags can be purchased affordably online. For this example we selected these lovely satin favor bags, that can also be monogrammed if you like.

Favor Cards : You will need the coordinated favor cards that match your VintageWeddingInvitation.com suite: For our example see the magical Moonlight Romance Favor Cards Here. Customize them to say Thank You or even add a favorite poem or song lyric.

• Hole Punch: You’ll need a few hole punches to share.

What to put inside the bags?
We like the idea of Lavender Wedding Rice making the gift a sachet that will scent the reception and can be tucked away in a drawer, bringing a heavenly reminder to your guest of your special day, a very vintage thing to do actually. You could also opt for mints, chocolates, jelly beans or (my fav) Jordan Almonds Candy.

Now The Fun Begins:
• Fill each bag with your choice of treat. If you have decided on lavender buds you will want to be sure that the satin bag is securely tied shut. If there is some spilling out assign one of the gal’s a needle and thread in a matching thread color to add four or five delicate stitches just to the gathered tops of the bags after they are filled and tied.
• Punch a hole in the upper right corner of the Favor Card.
• Slide one end of the satin tie end through the hole.
• Tie a knot in the satin tie to prevent the card slipping off.

How charming! Imagine every place setting having a Favor Bag beside it – or assign a flower girl to pass them out at the end of the reception. All of our Vintage Wedding Shower and Wedding Invitations features a card that can be customized just for this purpose. Visit the shop to customize your Favor Cards!

Classic Wedding Photo Ideas

  Wedding Photo Ideas Any newlywed couple will want these Wedding Photo Ideas as part of their wedding photo album, but we feel these poses are especially important to vintage bride and groom. This list describes classic poses that will also appear in your parent’s wedding albums, making these snapshots all the more important in keeping tradition alive. Just think of how very special it will be to have the same pose of three or more generations pasted into your scrapbook.

  • The Bride at the vanity mirror; perhaps Mother arranging her veil at the last-minute.
  • Bride arriving at the ceremony, getting out of the car. An opportunity to feature a classic car of your chosen decade.
  • The Bride escorted by her father, with her attendants at the start of the processional.
  • Newlyweds turned toward the gathering announced as man and wife for the first time (recessional).
  • The receiving line of guests, Bride and Groom at the end.
  • Cutting the cake.
  • Feeding each other the cake. Please ladies and gentlemen, resist the funniest home videos moment here.
  • First dance as husband and wife.
  • Tossing the bouquet. Think Elizabeth Taylor in Father of the Bride.
  • Leaving the reception, running through the shower of rice.
  • Bride waving goodbye as the groom pulls the car away, leaving the reception.
  • Wedding Photo Ideas

We would like to offer one more suggestion to this great classic list. Feature one of these snapshots on a  “Thank You Card With Photo” . Such a nice way to  say thank you for attending and a memorable keepsake for your guests. Be sure to include a personalized heartfelt note.  Our Thank You Card With Photo series compliments our Vintage Wedding Invitation Collection.  Choose from our decades of vintage wedding styles, and create a wedding that will live in your memories forever.

a) Remove one sticker from the sheet and place sticky side up on your work area.
b) Place the toothpick or stirrer on the adhesive side of the sticker – centered – or playfully angled.
c) Align a second sticker onto the first sticker placing adhesive sides together.

TA-DA! An adorable accent to your Vintage Hors d’Oeuvres table. Add to appetizers arranged on color coordinated plates. If the plates do not match in color layer a color appropriate party napkin over the serving plate first. Display drink stirrers in a tall glass ready for the taking.
Cheers!
