10. Incredible Edibles!
“Edibles” is the best way I can think of to categorize cookies and candy and wine (but that might be drinkables?). Brides love to give their guests a little “edible love” as a wedding day thank you.
While I don’t have any specific cookie or wine suggestions, I can tell you that our Mint To Be’s are a huge hit at receptions!
Seriously! Not a bar of Irish Spring at every place – but cute ones (like ours 🙂 Your guests will love them! Soaps

Autumn colors are uniquely beautiful, so be sure to incorporate them into your save the date cards and invitations to give guests a sneak peek at your wedding style and the tone of the event. Opt for rich, soft colors like below Designed In Mocha invitation…
…or go bold with colors like spice and mocha paper shown on ourSelf Mailer — Wrap it up. All those invitation ensemble pieces, gathered together. Uniquely. Attractively. Conveniently (which may be the most important of all).
Don’t forget the matching items that will make your wedding a stand-out, like printedmenu cards, place cards and table number cards.
…finish the night off with a beautiful fall wedding favor. I love theFall Leaf Tea Light and Place Card Holder. The leaves are aflame with the lively colors of fall, a cozy fire warms your hands and your heart, and giddy guests depart with a dazzling memento of your autumn event. The exquisitely crafted, metal maple leaf displays every hue in Mother Nature’s autumn palette, and when lit by the tea-light, it glows with the brilliance of the season.
Stark in it’s beautiful simplicity, the trumpet-shaped calla lily takes over a bouquet, or stands regally alone in a tall vase centerpiece. But don’t eat it! It’s toxic.
Back to the symbolism. Marriage, purity and rebirth are the three words associated with calla lilies when it comes to wedding traditions. In the language of flowers, calla lilies speak magnificent beauty.
Callas always make a beautiful bridal bouquet, whether combined with other flowers, or used alone.
Whether rich sapphire, bold chartreuse or a cooling aquamarine, the hippest colors showing up at weddings this year are blues, greens – or both. Blues and greens top the color palette for many brides, and are tagged as the trendiest wedding colors for 2009
The shades that are popular for 2009 are as varied as brides themselves, although trends are showing stronger, bolder colors are preferred by many brides. Bright aquas, lime green and chartreuse are among the top choices, frequently paired with another bright hue. During the summer and fall, expect the hues to be bold, bright and rich. Fall and winter weddings will showcase deeper, warmer and richer hues. Rich shades of navy blue are gaining popularity among those brides who don’t opt for the bright and bold colors, and are frequently paired with the bright tones to provide some balance. Navy is seen as providing an elegant touch to weddings, especially evening affairs.
Quite often the bold colors are paired with a neutral palette. Brown continues to be a strong choice for weddings and is striking with many of today’s greens and blues. The new neutral for 2009 is gray, which adds a shimmery elegance, especially when paired with navy, turquoise or another rich shade of blue.

According to the Wedding Report, the most common place for the colors to show up is on bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding cakes. Colors are also carried through in flowers, table décor and other decorations, as well. Wedding stationery is the perfect place to set the color choice for the wedding, beginning with save-the-date cards and, of course, invitations. The invitation sets the tone for the wedding for guests, conveying not only the colors the guests can expect to see at the wedding, but also the formality or simplicity of the event.
The sky’s the limit for brides when selecting the colors for their wedding. Brides should always select the color or colors that they prefer… regardless of what the experts say!
