Perfect wedding party favors according to bridal personality—Which of these is for you?

Are you one of those brides for whom everything changes, the moment that big sparkly stone touches your finger?

Real life experiences tell us that some stones lay low, but others have the power to bring out the best or the worst of the wearer. So, what bridal personality did your engagement ring transform you into—a psycho Bridezilla or a pleasant party girl? Read on to identify which of the stereotype bridal personalities best describe you as a bride. Once you do, we have a list of wedding favors for you to choose from, so you find the one that best suits your personality.

The fairytale princess

From the moment her Prince Charming was on his knees, proposing marriage to her, this bride’s life is a real fairytale. She has spent all her life waiting for this magical moment to happen, and now, nothing can spoil it for her. She must be wed in a castle venue, or at least one that looks the part. Her vision of the perfect wedding will include overdoses of pink, peach, yellow and gold. There will be lots of dreamy, floating elements in her wedding. So, expect to see balloons, lanterns, wreaths, flower balls and similar décor in her wedding.

You will know you are the fairytale princess type if your wedding dress has to be a poufy ball gown or a dress with plenty of embellishments as princesses cannot settle for anything less than the best. You are waiting to tint your eyelashes with sparkle and wear a tiara in your hair. A glass slipper sounds just right for the finishing touches of your bridal outfit.

The perfect party favor would be a gift that is as magical as the day you will be wed on. Beautiful trinkets with a touch of class will be just right to display on your party favors table. If they have a fairytale charm to them, they just cannot go wrong. We recommend the Cinderella wedding carriage candle for the die-hard fairy tale fan; add a touch of glamour and charm to your wedding with these whimsical little beauties.

The thrifty bride

thriftybride

This is the bride who searches far and wide to find the best items on a bargain to meet her wedding vision. Working on a tight budget, she will turn to DIY for as many things as she possibly can handle. Although weddings are expensive, she has her mind set on an amount, and nothing will make her spend a penny more than that. Although she may not be entirely tuned to the idea of wearing a second-hand dress for her wedding, she won’t hesitate to choose it if the ones she likes are not reasonably priced. And she truly believes she can make it happen as per her wish too, as she has invested time, energy and effort into nailing every detail with perseverance.

You will know you are the thrifty bride if the first thing that you look at when you go shopping for, whether it is for your wedding dress or the wedding cake, is the price tag. If you have to spend anything more than you originally anticipated, you will first have to do a lot of calculations to make sure you can accommodate this excess elsewhere. You will start early with your wedding shopping and planning, as you know that time is of the essence if you are to find a great bargain. You are also bold enough to step away from tradition, and try something entirely new, if you thinks it is a wiser choice for the money you have to spend.

The perfect party favor would be a gift that is more practical than pricey, and a gift that the guests would use rather than toss. Edible wedding favors like cookies, chocolates and cupcakes that can be delightfully customized for a trivial cost will be great choices that fit the thrifty bride’s vision of a satisfying gift that isn’t too pricey.

We have a whole page of edible favor wrappers that can be customized to the last detail. Check it out here.

The Classic Bride

Traditions and elegance rule the wedding of this bride. Her choices are not flashy or over-the-top. Despite that, there is a magnificence to every detail executed at her wedding. Everything from the wedding invitations to the color palette and the wedding dress are designed elegantly and echo timeless elements that just cannot go wrong. She will prefer a predictable wedding style, without too many surprises and you can expect traditional fare at the wedding. Family heirlooms, standard wedding speech progressions and classic music will all be part of the evening. Nevertheless, it will be pleasant and a fun evening, just as a wedding ought to be.

You will know you are the classic bride if you turn to the older generation for ideas on planning your wedding. You will have your mind set on traditional, even heirloom jewelry for your big day. Your accessories and makeup will be simple but stylish, and not too loud. You already have serious colors and simple silhouettes for your bridesmaids dresses in mind. You want your wedding venue to be beautiful, but not stuffy with too many details. Your wedding dress will feature classic elements like lace and pearls, and your bouquet will feature roses and delicate blooms.

The perfect party favor for the classic bride should be gifts that are as classy as the couple they represent. The antique style key bottle opener which has a vintage charm will easily find favor with her, as it is a good-looking gift with a touch of personality.  antique key opener

Equally impressive will be the miniature beveled mirror box with lid and  and the leaf wine stopper in an enchanting silver finish.

The environment-conscious green bride

This bride worries about the carbon footprint of her wedding, and is determined to make eco-conscious decisions for every aspect of her wedding. From choosing local and seasonal fare for her wedding menu to renting her wedding dress or repurposing an heirloom, she will painstakingly make every detail of her wedding a green choice. Although it may not be too easy to customize the centerpieces so they do not involve any wastage, or to stay away from the tempting cut flower bouquet, this bride knows that what the environment cannot afford, she doesn’t want. Don’t be surprised if you see her and her groom cycle away from the wedding venue, in the best interests of the planet.

You will know you are the green bride if you have been looking far and wide for the most eco-friendly choices in wedding invitations, dresses and food. You will have researched how you can cause lesser pollution by arranging group transportation for your wedding guests, and you will also be considering all that can be reused and recycled post your wedding, so there is minimum loss. We also think that ring on your finger may not be a diamond, if you are real green girl. Are we right?

The perfect party favor would echo the eco-friendly sentiments of the green bride. These should be favors that will continuously serve the owner and perhaps includes a green element as well. We can totally see this see paper sun filled with wildflower seeds warming up the heart of the green bride. Not only will it give her guests a chance to plant some joy into their own homes, it will also be a small gesture to encourage them on the environmentally conscious route.

Equally attractive are eco-friendly bamboo ball point pens with a green inscription that we have at our store. Find out more about this favor by visiting this link.

The fun-loving party bride

fun bride

This bride’s wedding party will be a huge hit, for the fun it entails. Everything will be about entertainment, and she will be excited to enjoy everything on offer, just as much as her wedding guests. Don’t be surprised if you see her wearing a dress that is more about comfort than bridal style, or you notice sneakers on her feet. After all, her wedding will be a day to enjoy lots of activities with the people she loves, and high heels would hamper her freedom to move about. If you see Piñatas at the venue, food trucks and lots of activities in the space, your guests will know they are in for quite some fun.

You will know you are the fun-loving party bride when all you can think of is how long and to what extent you can party on your wedding day. You will not care so much about how your wedding looks or whether your bridesmaids match each other or look glamorous. All that matters is everyone has fun, and that your party be the biggest fun event of the year.

The perfect part favor would be gifts that can be used at the party to add more fun, than just be taken home. Just married Sun glasses that can double up as photo props for the wedding party, are ideal gifts for the outdoor bash that this bride hosts.  sunglasses

For the children at the party, our bride and groom Frisbee in our online favors shop is a good idea. Check it out here. We are quite sure that even the adults can partake in some great outdoor fun with this practical party favor.

The trendsetter bride

Forget about following trends, this bride is all about setting trends herself. Everything she does and chooses is unique, and memorable in an exotic way. This is the bride whose wedding everyone wants to attend. All her friends, neighbors, colleagues (and social media stalkers) look forward to the event and seeing what her vision is like, from the minute they know she is engaged. She is as exciting as brand new fashion, and everyone knows that her wedding will showcase at least a few novelties that nobody else could possibly even think up.

You will know you are the trendsetter bride when you like to think outside the box, and want everything at your wedding to be distinctly unique. Your eye is on the details and how different it is from what others have tried and tested. You do not hesitate to step away from fashion stereotypes, to carve a totally different look for yourself. Most importantly, whether you choose a dream designer wedding dress, or a Boho chic dress, you can totally rock it. Don’t be surprised if everyone is asking questions about your wedding plans and are all ears to hear what you have in mind for your big day. After all, they know that it will be brand new and interesting.

The perfect party favors for this personality will be just as interesting as the bride herself. This is after all, the one thing, that the guests at the wedding get to take home as a keepsake, and it should live up to high expectations. Customized gifts possess that unique touch. The gold dreamcatcher inspired key ring is a gift that is unique and not too popularly distributed. It makes an excellent keepsake, precisely for this reason.

13 ideas for a green wedding palette

Nature’s own neutral—green, is a beautiful color that soothes and refreshes. Although it is not one of the immediate choices for many couples when they plan their wedding palette, it is a color that can create any effect you desire. Ranging from soft and romantic, to bold and overpowering, green is a color that lends itself to any design in your mind.

Not sure it will work? Just take a look at Mother Nature! There is no color that you can’t find in nature. Doesn’t green add the beautiful background that accentuates all these colors, whatever they are?

Apart from the aesthetics, there is another reason we love green as the main wedding color. It is for what this versatile hue is linked to. Green is the color of life, freshness, growth, harmony and peace. All these virtues are relevant for a happily married life, making it all the more meaningful to include this color in your wedding. It is also the color that is easiest on the eye, and when chosen well, it can make your wedding a stunning masterpiece.

Here are thirteen ideas that you should definitely consider for inspiring your green-color wedding palette.

1.Invitations

Begin your wedding planning by choosing a refreshing green invitation card for your big day. Featured here is a Now and Forever wedding invitation from the Best for Bride wedding invitation collection. The pretty combination of silver with green shimmer, makes it an elegant and attractive card. The bright green bow adds a pop of color to the muted background in the remainder of the card, and inside is a monochromatic green card with black lettering. It is a simple, but stylish choice that will offer your guests a hint of the color that will be in focus on your wedding day.

2.Wedding Cake

Isn’t this green cake simply embellished with a scattering of white floral details, delightful? Not only does it look delicious, it forms a pretty picture without too much clutter. The beauty of green is that it allows you to create a simple, but attractive design with a minimum amount of extra elements on it. Soft and unobtrusive, a cake such as this, will be a delightful addition to your reception. As for the flavors, pistachio is the first and most interesting choice that will be perfect for your wedding cake.

3.More green desserts green cupcakes

You do not always have to color your dessert totally green, to have it blend into your wedding palette. You can accomplish the same with the accessories and other essentials that come with the cake. Take this dessert idea for example. Here are some simple, but adorable cupcakes with a smooth layer of frosting. These have been packed into olive green cupcake cases, that form a beautiful combination with the crumb color and the white frosting. Unlike other heavy and luxurious desserts, these cupcakes look appetizing and are easy to enjoy. So, if you are looking for simple dishes to pep up your wedding dessert buffet, that are both budget-friendly and attractive, here is the right idea.

4.Mostly green bouquet green bouquet While an entirely green bouquet can be fashioned out of leaves and green colors like the cymbidium orchid and chrysanthemum, we prefer the highlighting of green with the right amount of mixing with a lighter color. In this beautiful bouquet, the richness of green is enhanced by the presence of peach and soft pink, with a scattering of white daisies. The green colors in the bouquet are all in a single shade, and this accentuates the effect of the color. The few red berries in the design make it further attractive, as red is a color that compliments green beautifully.

5.Silk green tie

Why not consider choosing a lime green silk tie with tiny polka dots or a similar design for your groom? While a darker shade of green would add a more refined and formal look, a light green tie would easily make it casual and fun. So, consider this accessory for the bridegroom, and there couldn’t be a better way of adding green to his outfit. Now, if you want to add more green to your groom’s look, without making it too overwhelming, you can ask him to wear green socks and it will be that little detail that nobody is going to really notice. And, what about the bride? We’ll look at it next.

6.Dramatic green wedding shoes

 A green wedding gown may be stretching it too far. However, you can still have a stylish dose of green in your wedding by choosing a beautiful pair of green wedding shoes. And, we simply love the drama of a colored wedding shoe that pops in and out of sight, during all the dancing at the reception. Here is a pair of brilliant green wedding shoes that a bride custom purchased off Etsy, to go with her emerald engagement ring. At this Las Vegas theme wedding, the accessories were all green, and we think that this shoe is just right for it.

7.Dark green bridesmaids dresses

Green and white make a splendid combination, and this is what you can accomplish by choosing green bridesmaids dresses. You have plenty of shades to choose from, ranging from soft lime green to deep, velvety green and the jewel toned emerald green. For an iridescent effect, green with blue tones are perfect. Not only do they look festive, they are also really dressy.

This bridesmaid dress is the 6731 from the After Six dress collection. The pleated pattern and lightly shirred skirt are beautifully complemented by the overlay bodice. It is trendy, and the loose drape makes it suitable for both young girls and older bridesmaids.

8.Light green bridesmaid dresses

When your palette focuses on lighter or muted shades of green, bridesmaid dresses in mint green or lime green may be good choices. The Alfred Angelo 7378S is an exquisite dress with a strapless bodice and cocktail length skirt. The chiffon bodice drapes over a beautiful lace layer that adds an exquisite touch to the gown. This causes the bodice and the skirt to have entirely different textures, and the effect is simply stunning. Perfect for a casual outdoor wedding, a beach wedding or even a semi-formal wedding, this is a dress your bridesmaids are bound to love.

9.Green beverages and drinks

cucumber water

Chilled water with slices of cucumber floating in it, make the perfect spa refreshment. This is just perfect for a summer wedding, and you will be surprised at the number of guests who will queue up to enjoy this seemingly uncomplicated drink. Gimlets like cucumber gin, fresh lime, mint-flavored drinks and mojitos are also great choices for a wedding in a green color palette. You will be astonished at the wonderful effect a handful of leaves can add to your bar, so don’t hesitate to add them into your decor. Garnishes like olives and green chillies are also suitable for adding a pop of green to your beverage display.

10.Bright table décor

Rather than use a green table runner and place green décor items in clear jars, this couple chose to enhance the effect of green with white flowers in green mason jars and tea light candles in green glass holders. The effect is unusually interesting. The scattering of green confetti on the tables adds an extra charm. What we love most about this setting is that the elements used are budget-friendly and simple, but the impact is strong.

11.Simple green and white china for the food service

green dishes

For the food service, white china with green rims will be the perfect choice. Since the serving dishes are white, the food will not lack its appetizing colors. All the same, you can easily bring in the green color subtly and make sure it is noticeable, with a choice like this.

12.Green colored food green food

Not everyone may be super-excited about a menu with plenty of green. After all green vegetables are notorious as health food that is usually unappetizing. When planning your wedding menu, the trick is to not focus on the green. Instead, use it as an accent color in the garnish. Make the food appetizing with other colors like orange, purple and yellow, instead of white. This will make the plate pop with a variety of colors, and instantly look more appealing. The presentation of the dish can also be adapted to make it look attractive. The other option is to balance out the green in the dish with green colored china.

13.Green wedding favors

Gifting wedding favors is customary. So, how do you make it match the color theme of your party? With green as your color, you will have no dearth of options. From potted plants to candle holders, there are ample options for you to consider. These miniature garden shovels with green handles, are from our wedding favors collection and are a great wedding favor for outdoor garden weddings. Whether you use it as a decorative accessory, or gift it with a seed packet to your guests, it makes a unique and practical wedding favor.

Hope the ideas here have inspired you to think creatively and plan your green wedding. To help you a little more, we will also take a look at the various colors that form a befitting combination with green. Whether they are used in equal doses or in varying proportions, these are the colors that will give you a striking impact when combined with green.

Combinations that work with green

Green is a color with a personality by itself. Nevertheless, the beauty of green can be further enhanced by adding colors that complement it. One combination that we are all familiar with is green and red. But this reminds us of a Christmas scene, and so it may not be a great idea to use. There are many other colors that yield beautiful combinations with green. These are colors that are either neutrals or those that come on the opposite side of the color spectrum as green. They include the following.

A point to remember when mixing colors is that you should balance out the colors in equal combinations of light and dark. You should also be liberal with the addition of details in neutrals, when the green you choose is of a bold shade.While green can be tried and tested with various other colors, the ones mentioned here are classic combinations that simply cannot go wrong.  It is a good idea to create an inspiration board and compile pictures of the various combinations that you find interesting,and build your palette from there.

7 perfect ideas for an environment-friendly wedding

You will already be aware of the fact that weddings use up lots of resources and are least environment-friendly, unless you attempt to make it otherwise. Fortunately, many couples today consider the environmental impact of everything they do, and choose to make wise and eco-friendly choices. The same applies to weddings too, and there are various ways in which you can plan an exciting, but sensible wedding that doesn’t harm the environment any more than is absolutely necessary.

There is a huge misconception that making green choices for your wedding means you have to compromise on style or function, and also that it can end up being very expensive. This is in fact, far from the truth. You can have a fantastic green wedding with as much an impact as any other wedding, if you plan it well. Additionally, there are several advantages of . Let us first look at what they are.

  • Our planet can no longer take the brunt of our demand for paper, water, energy and resources. Every wedding creates huge quantities of garbage and affects the environment in many different ways. A few eco-conscious choices can control this damage to a great extent.
  • When you make green choices and introduce this concept to your friends and family, they will also be intrigued by the options on offer. You can thus not only do your bit, but also promote an environment-conscious move, through your choices.
  • Simple actions like using less paper, making use of seasonally and locally available resources etc, can save you a lot of money and help you plan a budget wedding with huge impact. It is all about exploring the available options and keeping an open mind.

We have discussed some ideas in our previous post on planning a green wedding here. Let’s continue with some more ideas today. So, join in the fun.

1.Eco Jewelry

wedding jewelry

Do you really need that solitaire diamond for your engagement ring, for it to be meaningful? Wouldn’t responsibly and sensibly sourced jewelry and those that make use of recycled or repurposed stones and gems be equally unique? It could actually be extra-special, precisely for this reason! Ethically sourced diamonds are a valuable find that will give you what you want, sans the guilt. Cultured diamonds and other gemstones look equally good as their original counterparts, but with the added advantage that you will be wearing a stone that isn’t tainted by the sad stories behind the mining and extraction of such precious stones. Although these rings are grown chemically in a lab, they possess similar properties to the original stone and so would be just as durable and last as long as an original. The other great option is to use family heirlooms. If you aren’t a fan of the style, you can always have it reworked as it would still be a greener choice than getting a brand new one. Antique jewelers offer you opportunities to find something really special and perhaps with a history to it. So, explore these options to find not only your engagement ring, but also your wedding day jewelry. We found this wonderful article on the Inhabitat page that opens up a world of options in eco-friendly wedding rings. Why don’t you check it out to see the various choices that you can consider for your green wedding jewelry.

2.Reusable bridesmaid dresses

Choosing eco-friendly bridesmaids dresses may not be too easy, as we would be looking at choices in unusual fabrics like hemp or bamboo for it to truly be eco-friendly choices. Although it isn’t impossible to find a dress that fits the needs, it isn’t necessary that you will be able to acquire them as easily as you would if you were to go shopping the usual way. So, what we suggest is to look at this idea from a different perspective. One of the common things most brides do is to choose bridesmaid dresses so they fit the wedding theme perfectly. This can narrow down the choices drastically, as standard bridesmaids dresses aren’t usually preferred for use on another occasion. If you have your mind set on peach or yellow as your bridesmaids dress color, you can easily imagine how many of your bridesmaids will bother using the dress ever again. Fortunately, you can quickly change the picture by making a different choice. We suggest choosing bridesmaid dresses in neutral colors and in universally flattering designs, so they find use more than just once. Colors like black, brown and navy, as suggested in this previous post, are universally appealing colors that aren’t typical bridesmaid material. So, your girls are more likely to find better use for it, and you do the planet a favor by choosing a dress that will be used adequately for the resources that went into creating it.

3.Digital photo albums

wedding photo

One of the budget bombers in a wedding is the photography package that a couple books. Apart from the huge amount that goes into hiring a professional photographer, more money is spent for the rest of the things like photos in frames and the wedding album. Just think of how necessary all this actually is. Do you really need that wedding album or would the pictures on the CD do just as well? The main advantage of digital photography today is that it reduces the need and use of paper, which is a diminishing natural resource. Since you will mostly be sharing your pictures with all your friends and family online, ask yourself if you need more prints than what you will be displaying in your own home? And if you opt out of the wedding album option, you may be able to save a significant amount on the photography cost. Before you go and order your wedding album, wait for a while to make sure you think it is necessary. If you do, you can always have one made from the wedding photos you will anyway have, and perhaps gift it to yourself as an anniversary gift. This article on the Green Bride Guide also suggests asking your potential photographer whether they use green practices such as rechargeable batteries and non-toxic inks, if you are looking for the right person who shares your vision.

4.Artificial bouquets and boutonnieres

flower arrangement

Are you aware of the environmental impact of cut flowers? These flowers are usually grown in greenhouses, using loads of chemicals and transported from abroad to make it to your wedding. Imagine the damage each of the steps in their growth, packing, preserving and shipping cause the environment! Make a green choice by opting for artificial flower bouquets instead. You can recycle material like paper or fabric to create beautiful bouquets. The Its Always Autumn blog provides plenty of tutorials on how you can design beautiful flowers for your customized bouquet. You can also preserve an original flower bouquet, but it is expensive to do so and requires maintenance, and still needn’t look the same as it did. Now, if you simply must have an original flower bouquet, at least consider faux flowers for your bridesmaid bouquets and boutonnieres. Not only will it be a lot easier on your wallet, it will also look stunning if you plan it well in advance and do it well.

5.Reusable décor

bamboo

The most common wedding décor involves lot of flowers and foliage, most of which will be trashed at the end of the day. Make a change by choosing your décor wisely so that it finds further use. Options you can consider are potted plants like succulents and décor accessories like soy candles which can be used again. You can also create interesting table and aisle decorations with faux flowers and artificial foliage. Another interesting option is to deck up your tables with cacti, lucky bamboo or other interesting potted plants which double up as party favors for your wedding guests. This way they will find a home after the ceremony, and will live on as interesting keepsakes from your wedding day. Plants like lucky bamboo and succulents are easy to grow, and even guests with a black thumb will not be able to kill them off, try as much as they might! Take it further by personalizing your décor with natural elements like twigs, cones, acorns and branches that bring the outdoors into your venue. With a little creativity and inspiration, it is possible to craft stunning centerpieces and venue décor that is environment friendly in every way.

6.Reuse a wedding dress

You do not need a brand new wedding dress to be a brand new bride. You can do the same with a second-hand wedding dress or even a rented one. Not only is this the right choice for an environmentally conscious bride, it is also easy on your budget. At stores like Best for Bride, you can find great wedding dress choices from a range of top-notch designer collections on rent, and these will hardly cost you anything for the look you achieve with them. If you click on this link, you can find out all the information you need about renting your wedding gown and even the rest of the accessories to go with it. The other idea is to remove your mother’s or even grandmother’s wedding gown from the attic and give it new life by have it redone in a modern style. If you have ever watched the show “Something borrowed, something new,” you will know that a talented gown designer can transform any old-fashioned wedding gown into the most modern silhouettes, while keeping the original charm still alive. As you breathe new life into an heirloom with a re-purposed wedding gown, not only do you make a conscious choice, you also add more meaning to your wedding day by bringing in memories from another happy marriage. One other thing you may not have considered is that the color of the fabric is an indication of how much bleaching the dress has been put through. Remember that bleaching introduces several toxins into the environment, and you may be better off with a natural organic white color than stark white, if this factor bothers you.

7.Make your menu organic

organic

Every location has its own organic farms, and most vendors will agree to work with organic ingredients to create your wedding menu. You may have to think outside the box to make it work with what is available locally and seasonally, but it is definitely worth the effort. One thing many people associate with organic is bland and boring. But, this is wrong. Almost every fruit, vegetable, meat and dairy product you find on the regular supermarket shelves will also have an organic version. They can all be used in exactly the same way as you would with the inorganic counterpart. So, don’t let this idea limit you in any way. Organic is undoubtedly tastier and there are no dearth of choices in dishes. When the food you serve is free from additives, preservatives and artificial flavors and colors, it will go down well with your guests and you do them a big favor by choosing to serve a healthy hearty meal. Our favorite in the reception menu where organic food is concerned, are naked cakes without elaborate colored frosting. Usually decorated with fruits, berries and flowers, they are a delight as they are natural and delicious in their own way.

We hope we’ve shed some light on the different ways in which you can plan a stunning wedding without compromising on the details, and yet do it in a green and environment friendly manner.
