Gifts for the Mother of the Bride and Groom

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we want to pay homage to all of the Mothers of the Brides and Mothers of the Grooms. Once the question is popped and the bride and groom start planning their wedding, there a couple of key people who help guide the two through the process. These ladies play a very special role in the wedding.

Much like they did for us growing up, they offer advice, a helping hand, cautionary tales. They calm the jittery nerves and warm the cold feet. The mothers are there to help and to listen. They remind us why we’re putting ourselves through the stress because they know what is really in our heart of hearts.

How can you say thanks to your mom for helping you plan your wedding? Give her a personalized gift that commemorates the time she’s spent by your side.

Unique Wedding Favor Ideas

Sugar coated almonds, giant heart wine stoppers, crystal swans…we’ve all gotten them.  Instead of giving your guests a wedding favor that they may not use, give them a unique and personal gift that everyone will love. Make your favors fun and unique to you and your wedding. Love to DIY? You can do any of the following examples yourself to add a personal touch to your wedding favors.

 

1. Mason Jar Recipes

You can make jar recipes for everything from cookies, soups, tea and even bath & body products. Get some mason jars, find the recipe you want and make some cute labels for a gift that everyone will love to enjoy. Just don’t forget that your recipe needs to be non-perishable! Here are a few ideas.

2. Notecards

Notecards are a gift that everyone will use. You can use thank you cards that will double as a thank you to your guest but also be thank you notes they can turn around and use. You can use cards with any design  or message on them. Either way, this is a great favor idea that is personal and your guests will love. If you’re crafty you can buy blank notecards and envelopes and make your own or you can find ready-made options here.

 

3. Homemade Cookies

Take your favorite recipe and make large sized cookies. You could even come up with your own recipe that is unique to you and name it after you and your groom. You can use paper CD envelops to package them. Use some ribbon or string and add a cute label. You can even make the labels to coordinate with your wedding theme!

 

4. Chocolate Kiss Stickers

Everyone loves a sweet treat and you can’t go wrong with chocolate kisses. Customize  sickers with your names or a message that fit onto the bottom. You can find a template for the size that will fit right onto he bottom of these candies. This is a great way to personalize your wedding favor at a low cost. Here is an example of a template.

5. Custom Tees

This is a great idea for the destination wedding. Not only is it super cute, but it’s a memento of your wedding and the trip that all your guests took. You could also do this for any wedding but a destination wedding is really perfect, since there are normally few guests. You can do the destination name, a photo or create your own unique design. www.BridalPartyTees.com

Free Personalized Tic Tac Labels

Okay everyone, I hope you are ready for the latest free templates! I am really excited about these. I  have been thinking a lot about favors and how they can be so expensive. That’s why I created these templates. These are labels for Tic-Tac boxes. I created the labels in Microsoft Word, so they would be easy to edit.

1. Peel off the original Tic-Tac label. You may need to use a warm wash cloth to get all the glue off but make sure you don’t get any water in the box.

2. Choose from one of the Bridal Party Tees design templates. You can edit the text in Microsoft Word.

3. Print out on 8.5×11, white full label sheets. You can buy these at any office supply store

4. Cut along the dotted line.

5. Peel off back and place on the bottle in the desired location. This label is sized to fit on the front or back of the Tic-Tac box.

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!
