Well WishesWhat can I say... people love love! Tradition has it that tossing coins into a fountain brings love and luck. If you have a waterside reception, give your guests coins for well wishing.
The Favor of Great Favors
Face it... no one wants chachkis! So don't waste money on favors that will underwhelm your guests. Favors should have meaning and purpose, like this "Tea Time" bridal shower that combined eclectic tea cups with guest seating assignments.
Sweet SeatsDeck out your special seats with custom decals that spell out your new married name. You can also customize seats for your bridal party... I guarantee they will be taking snaps of them in their personalized chairs.

Think Outside the Box
Make your card container part of your decor. This antique bird cage hung from a life-size tree in the cocktail hour. It was eye catching and provided an element of safety as the cage was elevated and easily visible.
