I wanted to make sure that each guest felt comfortable and have a little treat bag. While the actual Wedding may include family, friends and acquaintances, the Rehearsal Dinner is more intimate and consist of the closest friends & family to the Bride and Groom.
I love crafting! Crafting makes me happy and keeps my busy! I am a hyper person, so I have to keep busy doing something at all times. Crafting allows you to be creative in your own style! I wanted to have a little custom favor that each person could take away with them as a remembrance of the beautiful Wedding.
I first designed these beautiful cards with a floral pattern that coordinated with the colors and the flowers of the Wedding. I used Vista Print to actually print them. You can save money by choosing the business card style in lieu of flyers or other options that most think of. These cards are the square cards and are so fun to work with! You can use a single hole punch to create the hole.
I wanted to do something different and unique so I chose custom Wine Charms. These little charms were so fun! I bought the charms in bulk and chose beautiful silver wedding cakes, topped with a Bride and Groom. I also found great guitar charms that were perfect! I wanted something that represented David and his musical talent that he has. Some of them had silver wine bottles along with the cake charms, I then added the silver "D" for Downs and the 2018 silver charm. The charms that I saw on Etsy, Ebay and other places were not as elegant as I wanted. I chose sterling silver rings and charms so that they would last many years.
All ages can Craft!
