The Best Ways to Propose to Your Wedding Party 

Now that you’ve said yes, it’s time to pop the question to your wedding party! Whether you want something simple and sweet or something more elaborate, we’ve put together a list of the best ways to propose to your wedding party. 

Gift Box

Let your friends open up a thoughtful box packed full of products you know they will love. Fill it with their favorite items or go for wedding-themed gifts, like a mini bottle of champagne, a customized champagne glass, and sweet treats. 

Heartfelt Card

While simple, it’s a classic way to ask your friends and family to take part in your wedding. Take time to write a meaningful card to each person and slip in your favorite photo of the two of you. 

Proposal Puzzle 

Make your friends work for it! Gift them a puzzle with a hidden message. They’ll have to put the puzzle together to see the hidden question. It’s a fun way to ask friends to be a part of your special day and it’s a special keepsake for them to always remember. 

Coffee Date 

Invite your wedding party to be over for a cup of coffee or tea. Get custom mugs made with the big question at the bottom of the mug. They’ll be able to see the special message as soon as they finish their caffeinated drink of choice. 

Custom Cookies

Who doesn’t love a sweet treat?! Spoil your friends with custom made cookies with the big question designed on them. The best part? They get to be a part of your big day and get a delicious treat to enjoy, it’s a win-win!

Personalized Water Bottle

Help keep your friends hydrated with a personalized water bottle. It’s a practical gift they can use again and again and always think of you. Wrap with ribbon and attach a gift tag popping the question.  

Dinner Date 

Throw a dinner party for your closest friends. Make it fancy and cook a delicious meal or keep it low key and order in from your favorite pizza place. Write each party goer a meaningful note asking them to be a part of your big day and place it on each seat. 

 

Top Recycling Practices for Your Wedding ItemsTop Recycling Practices for Your Wedding Items

We’re all about repurposing the quality crafted wedding items you’ve poured your heart and soul into. Especially in 2020, recycling and sustainability in the wedding industry are more of a booming trend. Brides and grooms are interested in their wedding resources being used for weeks or even years from the wedding day.

Wedding Dress

After your DFW wedding, you can pass down your wedding dress in an intentional way that doesn’t force your style on your future daughter or daughter-in-law. A few ways to repurpose your wedding dress includes making a christening gown for your baby, creating a bouquet wrap for your daughter’s wedding, or crafting wedding gown wall art. All three will showcase your dress in a meaningful way for your family and friends.

Left-Over Food

Make a plan on how to distribute your wedding food left-overs with your caterers. Give your guests the option to take home some extras including the entrees and desserts. This must be easy for your guests to take home with no-spill packaging.

Flowers

Floral arrangements can last much longer than just the day-of. An extra wedding favor for the bridal party to take home from both the ceremony and reception. Another way to coordinate this repurposing tactic is to ask your florist to supply some extra wrap.

Extra Invitations

Think about displaying your wedding invites in a picture frame with some dried flowers and a few black and white images. You could also reutilize the extra invites for a scrapbook. Adding photo prints into the invites with a guest name descriptor creatively shares your wedding attendees. Don’t let that beautiful stationery go to waste and share fun behind-the-scenes memories.

Wedding Decor

If you own any of the wedding decor items, you can store them until the holiday season. Whether they’re gift holders or accent elements, wedding decor typically goes amazing with the silver, gold, and greenery of holiday gift-giving.

Beyond this list of easy recycling practices, you can always get innovative with the specific items at your wedding. Your ornate wedding resources will be appreciated beyond the single day of your ceremony and reception.
