It’s that time of year again. I bet you think I’m talking about Spring? No. I’m talking about Wedding season.
Somewhere near you mothers, mothers-in-law, brides to be and their Maids of Honor are frantically plotting out all the details of an upcoming wedding shower or late Spring / early Summer wedding. Listen carefully, you can almost hear their chatter.
If you happen to be involved in planning a wedding shower, or perhaps you’re the lucky bride, you might be interested in taking a look at the unique wedding favors at HQ Wedding Favors.
I certainly remember what planning a wedding is like. I pretty much did all the planning for my own wedding myself. My parents lived 5 hours away and Chris’ parents also happened to live out of town. Oh, a few friends, my sister and Chris helped, but as the Bride to be I was pretty much making all of the major decisions.
Call it wedding brain or temporary insanity I even, more than briefly, considered catering my own wedding! My mother eventually talked me out of that idea and I’m still ever so glad that she did.
Needless to say it was a very hectic and stressful time for me, as I’m sure it is for most brides to be and their friends and family.
My wedding was to be the last wedding in our family. My parents had five children and I was the youngest and last to wed. My parents, aunts and uncles were getting older and I knew for some it might be the last time we’d all get together. So I took pride in trying to make my day a special experience for all involved.
I think actually picking out the wedding party favors and gifts for our parents and guests was one of the more pleasant and enjoyable tasks that I had on my long list.
Along with selecting more traditional items such as match books with our names and wedding date printed on it I also selected a variety of wedding favors to put together as a small package for our guests. I honestly can’t remember all of the items I picked out, but I believe it consisted of edible wedding favors, candles and coasters. Generally items that I hoped would be used rather than stored away in a dusty closet.
One of my favorite items that I selected to place on each table along with a center piece of Fall flowers was a disposable camera. I still hear from people that attended our wedding reception who enjoyed being able to snap photos of the people they were seated with at their table. We’re pleased too, because I believe we managed to get at least one picture of every single person who attended the reception. I treasure those photos.
Earlier I mentioned the online shop HQ Wedding Favors. I would have enjoyed looking through such a site when I was planning our wedding. Of course, Chris and I got married in 1994 and there weren’t very many stores of this kind online at that time nor did people feel as comfortable shopping online as they do now.
I would certainly recommend that anyone who’s taking part in the planning of a wedding or perhaps a wedding shower take a look at HQ Wedding Favors as they have some lovely items. You’ll find special gifts for bridesmaids, groomsmen, the flower girl and ring bearer, bridal jewelry, guest books, thank you cards and invitations, wedding cameras and much more!
I especially like the designer cosmetic bag which would make a great gift for bridesmaids, and items for groomsmen such as personalized flasks and the tailgating buccaneer.
Take a moment to have a look at the online shop and I hope the wedding goes well!
