Showcasing Your Talents
All brides have their own skills which they have honed over many years of dabbling with various jobs, hobbies and crafts. Why not showcase what you can do by creating your own wedding favors?
For example, if you’re a origami expert, consider performing some paper-folding wizardry to create some perfect paper cranes or flowers to impress your guests.
Get Your Bake On
Everybody knows that food is the way to most people’s hearts. Use this to your advantage and whip up a storm to blow your guests away. If you are having a seasonal or themed wedding, you could even decorate your baked goods with this in mind. For example, if you are having a gorgeous Christmas wedding then you could decorate cakes with festive designs, berries and confectionery.
