We often get to sample wedding related items and trust us, not all of them get past our office doors, but sometimes we come across fun products that make us smile. Whether it’s because they are yummy, pretty, clever, or downright useful, we want to share the goods with you.
Today’s wedding finds are bright and happy (just like you on your wedding day!)
Sticky! Candy– These handmade candies are just too cute to pass up! You can scoop them up in your hand and pop them for a sugar rush anytime and best of all, Sticky! can customize the design and flavor just for you. Use these creative little nuggets of sugar as wedding favors, bar snacks, in your candy bar display, as vase fillers, wherever.
Sticky! actually made these just for us (adorable, right?!):
Inklings Paperie– As soon as I spied Inklings Paperie, I knew we needed to get to know each other because their fresh designs have the perfect blend of of sass and class. The Bridal Bingo cards and Bridal Shower Scratch-off cards will make any shower hostess sigh with relief. We even think guests who “don’t like games” can dig them!
The Bachelorette Night Dare Cards are super fun and add a touch of suspense. Inklings explains how they work: Distribute cards to your guests all at once, or throughout the night. Each cardholder must scratch the shiny purse to reveal her dare, with fun challenges such as “Find a stranger to serenade the bride”, “Kiss a stranger”, “Take a picture with the DJ”, “Bride’s choice!” and more! For an optional twist to the game, players may opt out of their dare by sharing a “TRUTH” with the group (question is the Bride’s choice), or buying the bride a drink.
The Wishes for the Couple cards allow guests to leave sweet sentiments to the bride and groom; we love that the cards provide prompts since some guests avoid writing wishes at all because they get writer’s block! Prompts include “I hope you always…”;”I hope you learn to…”; and “I hope you treasure…”.
May Designs– It’s no secret, we’re fans of this online paper company. You can order all kinds of note cards and journals but the best part is that you get to design them just how you want! See more on May designs here (they make a fantastic bridal party gift!).
We’re heading into Fall which COULD mean more subdued rich tones in wedding decor but it certainly doesn’t have to mean that for you. If you lean towards the whimsical and bright, the following colorful wedding inspiration ideas are just for you!
Bridesmaid dresses and flowers are the perfect way to add a pop of color

This sweetheart table utilizes color brilliantly- the linens, flowers and rental items are anything but subtle and the result is beautiful
This color scheme is genius- it’s seasonally neutral but celebrates color in the best ways. The blue charger paired with orange details make for a sophisticated palette without being stuffy

This wedding was more subdued in overall color but the couple set the evening’s festivities apart from the rest of the day by offering multi-colored flip flops for guests to dance in
