Fun Wedding Favor: Anchor Soap


While I’m not a “boat person” (unless you count vacationing on cruise ships), there’s just something about anchors that I love.

They’re fun and nautical and remind me of the beach.

And if you’re hosting a destination or beach wedding this summer, today’s fun wedding favor might be a great addition to a welcome bag.

This anchor-shaped soap (which is hypo-allergenic, vegan, and gluten free) would be a fun item to add to your guest’s welcome bags – they could use it at the hotel or take it home as a reminder of your big day.

Each soap anchor comes in a clear cellophane bag with a personalized tag. The “Anchored in Love” themed tag is super cute and is ideal for a summertime wedding.

If you’re a fan of all things Harry Potter then you know the significance of this Harry Potter-themed cake topper.

Not only does this super cool cake topper feature the “Deathly Hallows” (not creepy at all if you know their meaning) – the Invisibility Cloak, the Elder Wand, and the Resurrection Stone – but it also highlights one of the most surprising lines in the entire film!

So, if you and your love are true Potterheads this just might be the perfect cake topper for your Muggle wedding. 😉

The “Always” cake topper is available in a variety of colors including black, white, gold, and rose gold. And you can also order it in several sizes to fit your wedding cake.

Cake Pops

I love the idea of serving an alternative to wedding cake, especially in the summertime when it’s often too hot to eat.

And, cake pops are the perfect alternative to a big and fancy wedding cake.

Sure you could still have a smallish wedding cake for the happy couple to slice – ya know, for those “slice the cake” photos! But then serve a dessert table full of sweet treats including cupcakes (mini cupcakes are so much fun), cake pops, candy, and other sweets.

These gorgeous chocolate cake pops would be ideal as a centerpiece at the dessert table. They’re decadent and elegant at the same time.

And really, everyone loves chocolate right?

Fun Wedding Favor: Sand and Seashell Bottle Stopper

Summer is officially here and my thoughts are all beach-themed. What I wouldn’t give for another week at the beach right now.

If you’re planning a beach-themed wedding or reception – or even just a destination wedding in a tropical setting – today’s featured wedding favor is the perfect parting gift for your guests!

These bottle stoppers feature a chrome and rubber gasket stopper topped with a glass globe filled with sand and shells.

The stoppers would be a great table decoration – for guests to take home, of course – but they also come pre-packaged in a box so you can give them as gifts to your guests.

Let Them Eat Cupcakes!

In these warm summer months sometimes a lighter dessert is necessary at a wedding.

While we all love big wedding cakes, there’s something to be said for small cupcakes.

First, everyone loves cupcakes. And, they can be fun and whimsical.

And you can easily add them to a dessert table but still have a small-ish wedding cake for the happy couple to enjoy.

Today’s featured (cup)cake are simple and elegant and would be perfect for a summertime wedding. The cupcakes are topped with gorgeous white icing and presented on a lovely tiered cupcake stand.

The addition of fresh blooms gives the cupcakes a real “wedding cake” feel without being too over-the-top.

These cupcakes would be an ideal addition to your dessert table, or they’d also make a fun alternative to a traditional groom’s cake.

You can find these cupcakes here. They were created by Flavor Cupcakery.

Vintage Wedding Cake

The other day we featured cupcakes as an alternative to a big wedding cake, and today we’re talking about a smallish wedding cake as an alternative dessert.

Today’s featured cake is the perfect size for a couple who wants to have a dessert buffet or cupcakes in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.

I love the vintage look of today’s cake.

The small cake features ruffled icing and pearls – resembling the lokk of an older wedding dress. The single sugar flower on the side is the perfect addition.

A simple yet lovely cake requires a classic cake topper and the initial cake topper is the perfect fit for this cake!

Tiffany Blue Wedding Cake

light blue cake

In these warm summer months I love looking for colorful wedding cakes that add a lovely pop of color to your dessert table.

Today’s cake is a perfect shade of blue for summer – it looks like the sea or the sky.

And, it’s also the color of a particular very popular jeweler. We all love getting boxes in this color, right! ;-D

This lovely light blue cake features four tiers of various sizes all in the same hue with delicate white piping between the tiers.

The burst of white blooms (sugar flowers we think) add the perfect touch of elegance to the cake.

This is a perfect summertime wedding cake!

Elegant Gray Wedding Cake

When you think about the perfect color scheme for a wedding cake, does gray often pop into your mind? No?

Well, it probably should.

I’m not talking about boring, dreary gray like the skies during a springtime rainstorm.

Nope. I’m talking about light gray accented with other colors including white and pink.

Take today’s featured cake as an example.

This three-tier cake is the epitome of style with smooth gray icing, pearls, pink fondant wrapped around two tiers, and even shimmery gray ribbon. And let’s not forget about the gorgeous spray of pink roses on the middle tier.

The cake is so gorgeous and elegant and perfect for your stylish day. Plus, the two side cakes are ideal as a groom’s cake.

Fun Wedding Favor: Gold Heart Bottle Opener

heart bottle opener

We all have the one drawer in our kitchen, you know the one – where all the gadgets and gizmos are located.

My “gadget drawer” is also where you might find a bottle opener. If I had one.

Everyone needs a good bottle opener for soda bottles, beer bottles, and any other kind of bottle that doesn’t come with a twist cap.

So, why not incorporate these heart shaped bottle openers into your wedding? They can double as placecard holders for guests (tie the placecard onto the heart) and then your guests have a fun and functional favor to take home.

I’m a huge fan of incorporating hearts into one’s wedding (heck, that was my theme way back when). And these heart shaped openers are the perfect favor.

The addition of ‘XOXO’ on the opener is just perfect.
