April: Wedding Ideas we Love

We are starting a new monthly post with fun wedding ideas we come across.  Below are some things that the Kirkbrides team members have found - please check back each month for fun ideas that we love!  We look forward to sharing these awesome finds with you. 

Smitten Sticks 
Very fun for photobooths, the Polaroid guest books, or even just the formal bridal party or family pictures!  Handmade facial expressions on a stick to hold up to your mouth in pictures:

Decoder Save the Dates
Such a cute idea with all of the buzz over 3D movies lately. The message is hidden on the card, and is revealed when you put on a pair of 3D glasses that come with the save the date! 
Very fun idea for couples who love lottery scratch offs, or games in general and want their guests to have some fun with their save the dates!  These are very affordable too!

S'More Love Favors
A great favor for couples who love the outdoors, love camping, met at camp, etc. The best thing about these kits is that you can make them yourself and include everything that you need for this delicious treat!  (Idea and picture found on Elizabeth Anne Designs)
I can imagine one of these displayed on a wooden parquet dance floor in a tent!

Simple, Stylish Wedding Garters
Garters are coming back!  Julianne Smith makes custom designed garters that are beautiful keepsakes from your wedding, and are actually very cute!  Check it out!


Last but not least - a great idea for save the dates, decor at the reception and/or thank you cards: Custom art portraits from Nan Lawson on Etsy. Couples can get these done for $40. Nan will give you a printed copy and a high resolution copy on cd, that you can re-use.  It would also be a great wedding gift!
