My amazing maid-of-honour came up with this fabulous idea and I absolutely love it! She brought a simple picture frame with white matting to my bachelorette party. While all the girls’ were getting ready we put on our brightest lipstick and kissed the white matte! Each girl left me a special message with their “kisses.” Following the bachelorette party I was able to put my favourite picture from that weekend in the frame as an amazing keepsake of a special time in my life.
Such an easy project but such cute results!
We had quite a few kids attend our wedding so wanted to be sure that they were well entertained during the quiet (i.e. boring for the kids) times of our reception. One of my bridesmaids had made colouring books for kids at her wedding and I thought it was such a fabulous idea!
Using her template, one I found here, and some activities I created on my own, I put together a great mix of entertainment for the kids at the wedding.
It worked well and they were all nice and preoccupied! I put them at each of their place settings with a pack of crayons. I also saw the idea of putting a small snack with it, but because we had appetizers out immediately upon guests arriving, I didn’t worry too much about that.
Print onto card stock paper. Fold in half down the middle. Punch two holes on each page along the spine at the same spot. Tie a ribbon through and into a bow to hold the spine together.

We did a $2 bar for our wedding reception but still wanted to provide people with a free drink. I decided rather than using the rolls of tickets you can get from most dollar stores (granted, would have been easier!) I wanted to make my own, something with a little more personality. I found a few ideas on etsy like this and this but I wanted to try making something myself.
Unfortunately I had to use a few different programs so you can’t change the wording on it so the document (link is below) has the same thing on both sides “REDEEM FOR ONE STIFF DRINK.” They still look super cute though and would be a good quick project to add to your wedding reception.
We put one in each wedding cracker (our favours) and everyone loved them!
Print on to cardstock paper, I used kraft cardstock paper purchased from Michaels.
Cut along the lines with a paper trimmer and you’re done!

I saw this idea on Pinterest and just had to make them for all of the girls that attended my bachelorette party.
I got a great document from this blog and changed some of the wording around to create the document that I attached to the bags. Rather than doing a card like they did in the blog, I just made a two sided piece of paper.
I printed the cards on cardstock kraft paper, two per page. Using a paper trimmer I cut the pages in half.
I used a hole puncher to put two holes at the top of the cards and then, using ribbon, attached the cards to the front of the paper bags.
I purchased kraft paper bags from the dollar store (although I’ve also seen them at craft stores) and included a bottle of water, a small can of gingerale, mints, chocolate (they were in the shape of bandaids, purchased from a local chocolate shop) and then I filled little glass vials (purchased empty from the dollar store) with Gravol, Zantac and Ibuprofen (Motrin).
I printed the labels for the vials using return address labels.
They turned out really cute and were much appreciated the day following the bachelorette party!

I saw the idea for these cute personalized Hershey Kisses on this blog and thought it would add a personal touch to my Wedding Crackers.
I used “Avery Print or Write Round Multiuse Labels” and printed a different message for each kind of Hershey Kisses we had (four kinds). The other blog mentioned ordering them off of the Hershey’s website but the smallest amount you can purchase is 25lbs (approximately 2000 pieces) and we didn’t need nearly that many! We found a good deal at a local drug store on sale and were able to purchase different kinds.
Once the labels were printed we stuck them on to the different kinds of hershey kisses we had purchased.
A really easy project that turned out to be really cute!
