CHOOSING WEDDING FAVORS
On an occasion as special as your wedding, it's nice to give your guests a little something to remember the moment. One traditional choice is a gift of colorful candies, such as Jordan almonds or pillow mints, nestled in a pretty container. It's a gift that symbolizes the sweetness the newlyweds have found.
Other favors help guests participate in the wedding. At one time, rice was the choice for greeting the newlyweds as they left the ceremony as man and wife. Today, more environmentally-sound ideas prevail-showering the couple with wedding bubbles or releasing groups of butterflies. At the reception, put a tiny celebration bell by each place setting-guests will love to ring them throughout the event to get the couple to share a kiss. It's also a nice touch to give every guest a small frame to commemorate the wedding. The frame can help direct guests to their seats by showing their name and, after the wedding, it can display a photo from the event.
Wilton has many favor containers and decorations to match your wedding colors and theme.
SELECTING WEDDING DECORATIONS
Choose accents for the ceremony and reception that reflect your wedding look or that have special meaning for you. Many couples include religious items in the ceremony which have been handed down from relatives-bibles, prayer shawls, etc. This is a great way to pay tribute to your family and keep them alive in your memory. Wilton unity candles are often used at the altar as part of the ceremony; many candles and holders feature popular wedding themes which can be carried throughout the day--flowers, hearts and Irish claddaghs to name a few. You'll also need a bouquet to carry (silk flowers work well), a ring bearer pillow, guest book and pen. Wilton has many accessories to make your wedding day special.
The Wilton wedding cake ornament will be one of your most prominent decorations. Work with your cake decorator to select an ornament which will complement the cake you've chosen. There are many themes and styles to choose from-some feature posed couples, many display lovebirds, hearts, flowers, and other wedding symbols.
