Happy Friday everyone! Allison from aStellina checking in with chapter six of my 25 chapter series, Unique Wedding Reception Ideas! Last week I discussed incorporating a groom’s cake to your reception. This week on unique reception ideas, I’m going to dive into the topic of favors. This favor is especially designed for you and your groom!
Many people decide to incorporate a favor or some sort of takeaway gift item for their guests. The favor is usually geared towards your guests and not to the bride and groom. While it is fun for your guests, wouldn’t it be fun to have a favor especially for you and your new husband? One way you can accomplish this is through a custom quilt. Here is how to make it work.
When sending out your invitations, include a piece of your favorite fabric. Instruct your guests when they respond to send back the piece of fabric with their response card. Another way to do this is to instruct your guests to send a piece of fabric, any fabric of their choosing. By the time of the big day, you will have collected all your guest’s fabric and be able to incorporated into a custom made quilt for you, the newlyweds to have for the rest of your lives!
I think what I love most about having a quilt from all of your guests sewn together, is that it’s just so symbolic of the journey that you two had together. It’s a quilt of all of the people you love, and you literally get to wrap you and your hubby up in all their love.
