T he adage "enjoy the little things in life" is never truer than in the days leading to your wedding, for those little details are what will be remembered by you and your guests. In making those decisions, you will see your person- ality and that of your groom come to life. Here are some popular details you may not have considered: Brooch bouquets Some brides are tossing aside the tradition- al flower bouquet in favor of one created from jewelry given by family and friends. Other unique pieces can be created this way, including the head piece for your veil. As a special touch, consider incorporating a charm or other piece of jewelry in honor of someone special. Trinkets and favors Give your guests a little something to remember your day, such as a favor. Here's where you can have a lot of fun. Some great ideas include a candy buffet or spread of homemade jams. You might also consider decorative magnets that tell of an organization close to your heart to which you and your groom have made a donation in honor of your guests. Photo booths have also become a very popular option. Your guests are treated to special, person- alized favors, and the booth adds another level of entertainment to your event. Some photo booth businesses offer a personalized scrap book for the bride and groom. What a fun guest book! Invitations and programs Forget the same old, same old. Invitations and programs can be so much more if you add a special touch. Consider selecting a simple invitation and spicing it up with ribbon, lace, burlap, pearls – anything to give it an extra spark. Don't stop with the invitation. Do something different with the program as well. Are you having an outdoor wedding? Consider a fan-shaped pro- gram in the event the temperature is a little high- er than you expected. How about a program that will entertain your guests while they anticipate you getting ready to come down that aisle? Have fun with your stationery and believe it or not, you just might save money along the way! Tip! Whether specialty candies or gourmet bites, edible wedding favors are always well-received.
