1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: LUNCH wedding shower gift ideas?? on: February 04, 2011 08:25:38 AM
I love the idea of His and Hers lunch boxes.

A picnic basket with tupperware, snacks, or a bottle of wine would also be nice. See if there is anything kitchen-related that they registered for and try to get something that would compliment that.

Maybe try selling them on Etsy. You have to pay a small percentage of your sales, but you wouldn't have to pay for a table for only a few hours at a show. I believe I have seen some of these on there, you should look into it!

Hubby can help you make some food the day before if you diy. Salads, mostacoli, and anything cold can be done the day before and then thrown in the oven at the last minute. I like the pulled pork idea! You could even shape hamburger patties earlier on and have friends help you throw them on the grill when it's time to eat.

Buffet-style catering shouldn't be too expensive, but even if you get the meats catered you can do the sides yourself in advance.

The mis-matched idea sounds like fun! it would match your vintage idea very well.
Now I want a picnic wedding...

I like it as is. Maybe incorporate the light green into the ribbon wrap? I have seen some fancy ribbon wraps on many bouquets here on craftster...

I think the cheapest/fastest thing to do would be to get some cardstock the size of your envelope and put a couple dots of rubber cement on the back. A bottle could get all of them done and would be way cheaper than glue dots. You could print some cute saying or your names on that cardstock.

Very cute invites!

How big is he? You could do either with it, but I'd want to wear it so show it off  Wink
I like the colors you used and the tiny pearl-like bubbles!

Do something reminiscent of your first date. Plan a romantic picnic or dinner with some cheap (but good) wine and his favorite foods. Go to a museum or create something together since you're both artsy. Since you have been stressed out, a day of quiet time together is probably a great gift in itself!

I would get a joint gift, but gear it towards his taste and they can enjoy it together. He will appreciate your thought, and the bride won't kill you!

Maybe do a gift basket movie night thing with a card for a few movie rentals and popcorn, his favorite candy, and maybe a copy of a favorite movie he doesn't already own?

I also like the scarf idea, do his in a reference to a scary movie, his favorite color, or his name, but make one for the bride too. Hers doesn't have to be as fancy  Tongue haha

If you want to do something decorative a decoupaged box would be neat, he could keep his things in it. Does he work in an office where he has his own space? Something decorative or functional could be made so it won't have to sit at home with his bride.

What kinds of art do you like to do?

I like the personalized scrapbook idea, have other family members help you take some pictures at the wedding and give it to her when she gets back from the honeymoon! You could insert personal jokes or memories in there somehow...

If you're good at embroidery or anything like that you could do some napkins, pillowcases, or a wall hanging for them with their monogram or wedding date on it. I think anything personalized is fancy Tongue plain linens are usually pretty cheap.

You could take a request for a one-of-a-kind painting that would match their living room.... I would just do something you know she would appreciate and use. She may get money from a lot of people, but she will always remember your hand made gift!
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Music theme on: July 15, 2009 03:41:42 PM
My boyfriend and I are getting married fairly soon when I finish my schooling next year. Our families are fairly traditional but I find traditional weddings to be boring! I want to somehow tie in our love of music as a theme. Right now I want white, silver, and different shades of purple as my colors since we are planning a spring wedding, but they could change since I have time.

Does anyone have any ideas other than music notes? I was thinking of using CDs under the flower arrangements or candles instead of those little mirrors people often use, but other than that I am stuck. We mostly listen to punk rock music and a couple of our favorite bands have some pretty good covers of older songs that are usually played at weddings. I was thinking of substituting those songs for the originals.


Any ideas would be wonderful!
