Meant to “Bee”… Honey Wedding Favors

In terms of wedding expressions, “meant to be” is up there at the top of the most used (or overused..) Think, “oh those two are just meant to be” or “they were always meant to be even when they didn’t know it”… use your imagination, I’m sure you’ve heard them all before!

Not to say this isn’t a nice expression (it is), but aside from hearing it over and over on your wedding day, why not humor it. For what? The favors of course.

The favors… not to be overlooked, favors can be so fun! Plus they are a nice little treat for your guests. So if you aren’t into the DIY craze, nor do you want to spend a fortune, why not make it simple and sweet… with honey of course! Little jars of honey are perfect for a Spring wedding plus they taste delicious and are unique for your guests to take home and remember.

All of these little honey jars and tags are from Etsy which is the perfect place to find favors (or anything)! There are endless shapes, sizes, and mason jars full of this sweet treat that will really guarantee a creative use of the term “meant to bee

The Western Way

For someone who has never really been to the “wild wild west”, I certainly can dream up my own version of a western wedding! It may be a little early for an outdoor wedding here on the East Coast but in America’s heartland, I’d say it’s the perfect time to grab your cowboy hat and start planning..

And the first thing on my western wedding agenda? The boots of course! Cowboy boots are the ultimate accessory; so much more than a shoe, they are the statement piece for the bride-to-be. I would even concede that it’s the dress that needs to match those boots! And to take it a step further, I love how you can accessorize your bridesmaids with the boot trend as well! And even better? How about the boot becomes your bridesmaids gift? Now they are not only the perfect accessory but also the perfect gift… I love how these blue-gray bridesmaids dresses match the boots flawlessly. The dress length is just right for an outdoor wedding and the color is so earthy, it blends in with nature. And the venue? My pick is the Vista West Ranch outside of Austin, Texas (check out the incredible ceremony set-up below). It is graceful, rustic and utterly Texan! And down to the details? Make sure you pick the perfect little things…like these invitations, the wedding cake choice, your creative outfits for the flower girl and ring bearer and the horse of course!
