Personalize Your Soda!



As you know, I am a big fan of personalizing the small details of your wedding. That is why I love how Jones Soda allows you to personalize your pop labels. These would make for great wedding favors or as drinks for your guests. They would be absolutely perfect for a casual outside wedding. However, I think I would really like them for a soda bar. You can get a variety of flavors all personalized with different pictures of the couple or images that play off the theme of the wedding. Then arrange them into an old fashioned soda bar with a unique modern twist. I love it! You can personalize your soda on the Jones Soda website. The soda is about $29 for a 12 pack. Start Designing!

Wedding Cake Alternatives

 Cake has dominated the wedding industry for years. However, right now there is a trend to skip the cake all together or have your cake and other desserts too. Maybe cake is not your thing. For many people cake is okay, but they have a dessert that they simply swoon over. (Mine would be cheesecake by the way.) So, why not have that dessert at your wedding? You defiantly should, whether it is only that dessert or a combination of cake and your dream dessert. Below I have listed some fun alternatives or additions to cake. I doubt that cake will loose it’s premier spot, but maybe it will get a run for it’s money!
