Neon Wedding Signs

Light up wedding signs are nothing new in terms of décor and have been super popular for many years with couples around the country, but for 2018, expect to see the traditional signs take on a whole new retro kitsch vibe with the arrival of neon signage.

Yes think bright yellows, hot pinks, vibrant greens, cool blues and everything in between! The beauty of these signs is that you can use them in so many ways. As part of your ceremony backdrop, as part of a DIY photobooth, a cake backdrop or simply as a focal point in your venue.

You could hire or purchase a generic sign, to say something such as Best Day Ever, or Mr & Mrs. However you could also go the extra mile and create a custom sign with a personalised message, or phrase and later hang it in your home as the ultimate wedding day keepsake. 

We’ve put together some ideas to get your creative juices flowing. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

In the Ceremony

The ultimate wedding ceremony backdrop, you can go for something small like initials, your new surname, or fun phrases like ‘it started with a kiss.’

 

Cool Phrases

There’s no end to the romantic phrases you can use. The beauty of these is that you don’t have the extra expense of customising your sign. Everything from ‘happily ever after,’ to ‘love is all you need’ to ‘best day ever,’ are to be found.

 

Celebrate Your Surname

Why not go for something simple and celebrate your new married surname? Many new couples find it so oddly fun to see their new shared surname, it’s a bit of a thrill to see it be a reality, so why not celebrate it up in neon lights? Plus it would be the ultimate keepsake you can hang in your home for years to come.

 

Bespoke

If you’ve got a phrase, or a line of a song, or even in image that is something truly special to you both as a couple, then why not have it up in neon lights? Or why not have the wedding date up in lights? If you’re both social media butterflies and techie lovers then why not have a hashtag in neon light signage to act as both a social media tool to direct your guest’s posts, but also to serve as a bespoke keepsake from your big day.

Complete Guide To Wedding Welcome Bags

Wedding Welcome bags are the latest trend for weddings to come out of the USA. Depending on your point of view, you might look at these bags as something to get on board with, or you may sigh at the thoughts of having to add yet another thing to your wedding ‘to-do’ list.

The idea behind them is that they are a way to welcome and greet your guests who may have travelled a long distance to get to your wedding, but they are also staring to become something that is being extended to all guests.

If you are unsure as to whether or not you want to commit to doing these bags, then we’ve broken it down for you below.

In the meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

What Are Wedding Welcome Bags?

Wedding welcome bags are a new trend that started over in the United States, but have begun to make their way over to this side of the Atlantic. The original intention for these bags was to be a way to greet guests who had travelled a long distance with goodies that they may need for their visit. Things like information on the wedding venue and local area, maps of the immediate vicinity, or some samples of what the area is known for producing. In addition, the bags generally contain some snacks and drinks to keep people going, plus some toiletries for guests who may have forgotten such essentials.

 

Why Have Them?

While we don’t tend to travel the same huge distances to go to weddings here in Ireland, they are still something to consider. Indeed many of us have relatives who can fly in from far flung places such as Australia, and if you’re having a destination wedding in another country, but beyond that it’s a nice way to make your guests feel welcome and is a very personal touch that will make a huge difference to them. While these bags started out as something to welcome those who had travelled long distances, it is also nice to provide every guest with one, no matter what the distance. Everyone who has come has made an effort to be there, so offering them a personalised welcome bag is a lovely gesture.

 

What Can I Put in Them?

Anything! Generally speaking the content are some kind of fun snacks, toiletries, drinks, information on the local area, information on the venue and the wedding proceedings, even a hangover kit could be useful! The sky’s the limit here.

 

What Sort of Bag Do I Need?

If you’ve got the budget, then why not design a canvas tote? The beauty of it, is that it will be something most guests will use again in their daily lives. If you don’t have the budget, then why not think of paper bags and get creative with a DIY stamp? It doesn’t even have to be a bag, why not a box or basket?

 

Are There Any Downsides?

The only downsides to these bags is the cost and the time. Producing a welcome bag for each guest will cost money and generally speaking you’ll be filling these bags yourself, which can take time, so keep this in mind.

Irish Wedding Themed Favours

Forget shamrocks and leprechauns! If you want to avoid the old stereotypes of Ireland, but you still want to give your guests a taste of the country, then think about what stunning produce modern Ireland has to offer.

From artisan chocolates, to chic gin, to candles, seaweed beauty products and everything in between there are so many options to choose from.

Of course, you’ve got to have some of the retro classics in there too and without doubt one of the things people miss if they are living away from Ireland is the food. Favourites like Barry’s Tea, Kerry gold, Brennan Bread and Tatyo Crisps

Equally if you are having your wedding here and want to familiarise your guests with Irish culture, these items are ideal.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly if you wish to chat about any aspect of your wedding planning and décor.

 

 

Tayto

It’s the Irish classic, that might seem a bit odd to overseas guests, but it will be a truly unique favour they sure won’t have had before. Equally if you’re living abroad and coming home for your wedding, what a taste of home this will be! Yes it’s the classic Tatyo sandwich pack with bread, the famed crisps and butter!

 

Tea

Ireland and Tea go together like peas and carrots. We are obsessed with tea and again this could be a really fun favour. Try and track down some retro style tea tins of brand such as Barry’s or Lyons and leave one for each guests.

 

Seaweed

Ireland’s Seaweed is famed for its skincare benefits and healing properties and indeed on the west coast of the country you can indulge in a luxury seaweed bath. But why not give guests a sample of the product with items such as soaps, bath salts and body lotions. Brands such as Voya are ideal.

 

Irish Drinks

A simple, but welcome favour, why not leave a different mini bottle of an Irish drink for each guest? Whiskey is an obvious choice, but think about all the artisan gins, craft beers and non-alcoholic drinks being produced here in Ireland. If you want to get fancy, then you could personalise them and have each on a bundle with a few other items, such as artisan chocolates or mixers.

 

Candles

Irish artisan candles have become huge in recent years. It’s a thriving business and many of them are truly unique with scents such as rainy Irish day or a turf fire to really give your guests something different.
