We are having beautiful big heart shape lollipops in the bridesmaids colours swirled together. They look great.

We are having a vintage theme to our wedding and i was really finding it hard to think of anything original.But last night i came up with this idea and i think im going to stick with it. I am going to collect from Vinnies & 2nd hand stores old fashioned wine glasses & champagne flutes in all different colours (especially cut glass) and around the stem tie with twine attach the name tag. so they will double as a gift and place card. I have attached a pic of the sort of glasses i mean. (hope i explained that ok :lol: )

I;m really into my craft so I'm going to buy 150 champagne flutes!! (around $140 which isn't too bad) and using glass paint hand paint our names, wedding date and a blue love heart either side of the writing. Then using a glitter personalise each glass with the guest name on the base of the glass. We'll then curl paper into a love heart chape with a greeting/thankyou on it. If someone teaches me how to attatch pictures I'll show you what I mean by the curled paper.

Inside the glass there'll be a collection of sugared almonds, home made caramel filled white and milk chocolates in a heart shape and to fill space we'll use blue and white m & m's (yes I'm going to sift through M&M's to find the blue and white ones, the white ones will have to be the mint ones...lol)

This will probably cost something like $1.50 per person, which is pretty good.

I'll post pics when they're done. BTW wedding isn't until 20th sept 2008, lol and I've started doing the glasses now...going to take a long time :)

i was thinking to get those mini bottles of body lotion like you get in hotels... (or shampoo/conditioner) to use as bombonniere... you can purchase them in bulk and they work out to be from 40c each.... i thought this tied with a nice ribbon and small gift tag would be a good and cheap idea .... but still my wedding is a year away so its prob abit early for me to be making a decision incase i change my mind later :lol:

We're having ivory organza bags filled with ferrero rochers - the milk choc ones and white ones. They ended up at about 34c each for the ferreros (probably 3-5 in a bag) and the bags were 50c. I can't be trusted with that muh chocolate, so they've gone to mum's place - she can be trusted! :D

We have a few ideas ...

Stubby holders from Mr Stubby and Wine Glasses - personalised (which I have thought of doing the personalising myself).

I also like the idea of personalising christmas baubles as our wedding is close to Christmas (9 the december 07), this way everyone can hang a piece of our wedding on their tree.

We are having a sand ceremony as part of our ceremony and I would like to get some miniature jars and extra sand and do up a little jar for guests as a memory of our day.

So many ideas, it's all too hard. :?

We are having little clear boxes with a love heart on the top with gold writing on them and chocolate love hearts inside wraped in lilac and pink foil.

My Bon Bon box!

Wed Jan 03, 2007 3:25 pm

This is my bon bon box. I got the boxes from my local Yummy Noodle shop for $10 for 50 boxes. The tags off ebay for $10 and the string for $3.50 from a reject shop. I am putting 3 individually wrapped Tim Tams in each (our favourate choc biscuite). Cost about $70.00 for all 50.

I saw on a bonbonaire website miniture port glasses and they were $5.95 each, but i'm making them for around $2.50 each - found the glasses in a dollar shop for $1, tulle for 25c and not sure how much the alonds will be.

I can't seem to post the pic :(

I LOVE those! Im thinking of doing the same thing for our August wedding and using gold and black ribbion to decorate. The tags you brought from e-bay, where they pre-printed or did you do that?

Melbel: I don't now how to do that quote thing but the tags you asked about were from a lady of ebay called saln78. (How do you quote people?)

You pick a flower, what you want to say, font and colour and she does them up for you. They were 20 cards for $5.00 with $1.50 postage. She has a lot of other stationary stuff too. I love them too. So cute.

I'm thinking of doing a CD of all the songs used throughout the day - walking down the aisle, signing the certificates, walking out of the ceremony, bridal waltz etc... Then maybe we can also include some of our fave songs on there too. Not sure about this part of it yet though... Inside, I would state why we have chosen that particular song, so they know the meanings behind them all.

Also my FH is from NZ, and has introduced me to "Buzz Bars", which are a cadbury choc bar that we don't get here. OMG - SO yum! We could buy a box of those and give each guest one with their CD!

LRN&ADM Could you tell me which store you got your tags from...$10 for 50 seems REALY cheap and just what I am after??? Did you print them yourselves or did the ebay store do them for you???
