Custom Coasters For Your Wedding Day

Your wedding is considered one of the most important days of your life. Endless hours not only go into planning the wedding but the bridal shower and bachelorette party as well.  Bride-to-be’s are looking for new and unique ways to make their day extra special and most importantly memorable. One way to give your wedding an extra touch of perfection is to add personalized details to as many areas possible. This idea can range from customized cocktails to a personalized hashtag so guests can tag all their pictures taken at your wedding. You can easily create your own saying or logo and incorporate it into a variety of options. A small but clever detail that you can add to your wedding is custom coasters.  Custom wedding coasters are a great and unique way to infuse your personality.

Our custom coasters come in two options of plastic and a sandstone soaker. Both coasters provide cork backing for a no slip and no spill avoidance. Our sandstone soaker coaster is thick, heavy, absorbent, and  is a very durable option that will last. Bridal Party Tee’s has a broad selection of coaster designs to choose from including trendy sayings and designs for  guests to give advice to the bride and groom. Our design center also uploads any images or pictures making it easy to upload that first picture of the bride and groom or the wedding logo you have had specially made.

Looking for a cute and creative gift for the bride? Custom coasters are a great bridal shower gift since they can display the bride’s soon to be last name. Bridal Party Tee’s no minimum policy makes it affordable and allows no limitations on your order of one of one hundred. A bride can take advantage of this no minimum policy and purchase custom coasters for the entire bridal party – each coaster personalized with name, date, and role in the wedding party.

Second Wedding

Second Weddings and Vow Renewals

Another cup of coffee, repurposed Mason jars, and antique jewelry. There are a number of things that get better the second time around. At the top of that list is a second wedding.

Second Wedding

Whether it’s your second marriage or the increasingly popular renewal of vows, here are several beautiful ways and helpful tips to celebrate your second wedding ceremony.

Do Exactly What You Want To Do

If your first ceremony was held in City Hall, plan the elaborate wedding you’ve always dreamed of. If you had your first wedding in a church, but always wanted a ceremony on the beach- book your flight. Thinking an intimate evening wedding is the route to go? Sleep in, get your beauty rest, and have your romantic, candle lit ceremony. It is your wedding, and more importantly, your second chance to do and have exactly what you want.

Bridal Shower

It is often the case that those planning a second marriage or vow renewal have all of the typical household items that are traditionally gifted at a first wedding. This time plan something fun for your bridal shower. Take a trip to a winery. Plan a spa day or a weekend camping trip. There are plenty of fun things to do with your close ones that will toast this special time for you without the traditional bridal shower. Customized shirts are a fun and thoughtful way to commemorate the trip or event!

Registry

If you can’t think of anything you need that would warrant starting a typical registry, ask guests to donate to the charity of your choice or to your children’s college fund. Use sites like HoneyFund to create a honeymoon registry of sorts. Or add another sweet touch to your wedding by asking guests to bring you their favorite movie, book, or album- a fun and loving way to build your collection.

Blending Families

If you’re planning a second wedding and you or your fiancé have children that you’re bringing into a new family, bring them into your new wedding. Give them big tasks so they feel incorporated and important. Flower girls, ring bearers, and ushers are useful positions that the young ones can fill and feel trusted by their new step-parent.

Honeymoon

Second time brides often think that they have to plan a family friendly honeymoon or skip it altogether. Far from true. Find someone to watch the kids if they aren’t old enough to stay home alone. Perhaps a close family member will do this in lieu of a wedding gift. Certainly don’t skip your honeymoon! Your second wedding or vow renewal is a celebration of happiness and love in your life just as much as the first ceremony was. Plan the trip you’ve always wanted to take. Hiking the green hills of Ireland, a Mediterranean cruise, the trip to Hawaii you’ve always dreamed of- you deserve it now as much as you ever did. After all, you’re brave enough to take another chance at happiness and that’s not always easy to do. Be every bit of the brave, beautiful bride that you are.

love cake2

How perfect is this little cake for a bridal shower or luncheon? The name is very fitting as well, Persian Love Cake. I told you it was perfect! This is a This chiffon cake filled with rose-scented whipped cream and topped with candied rose petals.

 

Ingredients

Candied rose petals

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Petals from 2 organic roses

Cake

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 14 tablespoons baker’s sugar or superfine sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon whole cardamom seeds (removed from about 5 green cardamom pods)

Frosting

 

  • 2 1/2 cups chilled heavy whipping cream, divided
  • Pinch of saffron threads
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 2 tablespoons natural unsalted pistachios

Preparation

For candied rose petals:
Whisk egg whites in small bowl until foamy. Using pastry brush, brush rose petals on both sides with egg whites; sprinkle on both sides with sugar. Dry on nonstick rack at least 6 hours or overnight.

For cake:
Preheat oven to 325°F. Butter two 8-inch-diameter cake pans with 1 1/2-inch-high sides. Line pan bottoms with parchment paper; butter parchment. Sift flour, 7 tablespoons baker’s sugar, baking powder, and salt into large bowl. Whisk yolks and next 4 ingredients in small bowl until smooth. Add yolk mixture to dry ingredients; whisk until smooth. Beat egg whites in medium bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add 7 tablespoons baker’s sugar; beat until whites resemble thick marshmallow fluff. Fold whites into batter in 3 additions. Divide batter between prepared pans. Bake until cakes are golden and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool in pans on racks 15 minutes. Turn out onto racks, peel off parchment, and cool completely. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Wrap and store at room temperature.)

For frosting:
Combine 1/2 cup cream and saffron in small saucepan. Bring to simmer. Remove from heat; let steep 20 minutes. Chill until cold.

Beat remaining 2 cups cream, powdered sugar, and rose water in large bowl until soft peaks form; strain in saffron cream. Beat until peaks form.

Place 1 cake layer, flat side up, on platter. Spread 1 cup frosting over. Top with second cake layer, flat side down. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Chill at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours. Garnish cake with rose petals and pistachios.

Jello Centerpiece?

 

jello

J-E-L-L-O, has been the catch phrase of Jello for years. I have seen many uses for Jello, from cakes, to salads, to  drinks, but this is a new one. You can now use the jiggley mix to make a beautiful centerpiece for your wedding,wedding shower, or luncheon. To create this look simply combine six boxes of Jell-O powder with half the amount of water specified, chill the mix in a glass vase for half an hour, then just push flowers into the semi-firm gelatin. You can design your own in any color!
