All Things Wedding

So my little sister got married in June and I was tasked with finding her all she would need for her reception on her big day. She works nights so her time is tight and I always have time on my hands nowadays, so it's the perfect solution. I have been gathering all sorts of samples that would be perfect for your special day, whether you're looking for favours, tableware or decorations.
How about personalised handmade soaps to give as wedding favours? Bean and Boy have just released mini bar versions of their popular large soaps and they've completely flown off the shelves. Their artisan handmade soap has been designed for sensitive skin and is loved by families. It's handmade in small batches, is completely cruelty-free and uses responsibly-sourced vegan ingredients. The soaps come beautifully gift boxed and would look truly stunning.
If you're looking for a bride and groom then how about these adorable itty bitty ones from Hallmark. They are super soft and cuddly and the perfect size to go on the cake table either side of the cake and they make perfect keepsakes.
For the wedding favours I headed over to eBay, just type in favours and you get pages full of all things wedding. I found these love white heart dragees for only £2 for a bag of 50! That was enough to put 2 in each favour box.
My sister wanted something personalised in the favour boxes, a keepsake that guests could keep. I hunted these Lovehearts down on eBay, they can be personalised with your names and your wedding date. They actually arrived really quickly and were around £8 for 30 tubes.
It's just not a wedding favour without sugared almonds, is it! This bag of 50 was from Ebay and was only a few pounds. They have a whole range of colours and quantities available so you can customise with your wedding theme.
I love how delicate these favour boxes are, I did need to build them all though, all 25 of them and it took ages! The all slotted together securely though and were a bit of a bargain at £2 for 25!
All of the next items were supplied by the fabulous team over at House Of Party, who have a whole range of wedding party ranges to suit any budget and any design. I told them the wedding theme was pink and they matched me with the fab geo blush range and sent me a party box containing everything I would need for the reception. With Signs and bunting from just £6 decorating your venue doesn't have to cost the earth. I loved the air fill balloons, they were so easy to fill and hang
 
Rather than cut into her lovely cake on the day, we decided to buy some tray bakes and fill these cake boxes and put them out on the table for the guests to take home. It worked well and the boxes went down a treat. The cake boxes are £4.50 per pack of 10 from the House of Party website.
I think a card box is a lovely idea, this one from the geo blush range is only £7.50 and fab size. it just pops up and you add the lid, it was great for putting on the gift table.
I added these chocolate favours into the favour boxes and they were the perfect size. They are individually wrapped and come in boxes of 20. They are £6.75 per box and they were really yummy, we only needed 25, so still got 2 boxes which meant I got to eat a few when I was favour box making!
To match the geo blush range is this lovely Mr & Mrs table confetti priced at only £3.99. I liked that it was slightly larger than standard table confetti and the multi colours and stripes looked fab on the tables.
The beautifully bound guest book was stunning, the gold trim really stands out. The pages where plain white to enable guests to write their own messages for the bride and groom. It tied with a pretty white ribbon and is a beautiful keepsake.
My sister wasn't having a formal sit done meal after her wedding, she favoured a small family party and buffet. So we used the place cards to reserve seating in the registry office for family members. This ensured they got a good seat and saved us having to tell anyone where to sit.
For the tableware House of Party sent me the pattern works range, in the geometric gold and pink stripe design. The plates and cups come in packs of 8 and the napkins in packs of 15 all priced at £3.49 a pack, the compliment the geo blush range perfectly.
The Bride and Groom had a fab day, they looked amazing and they loved all the little wedding touches I provided through my blog. My sister was really pleased with the room decor, I highely recommend House of Party, Ebay, Bean and Boy and Hallmark for all yor little touches for your DIY wedding decor.
Thanks For Reading
