It’s a been a while, hasn’t it? So how’s about a quick roundup of all things wedding that’s been going on at Moonrise Lingerie’s wedding blog recently?

 moonrise_wedding_blog

Following the success of Moonrise Garters last year, we decided to broaden the our handmade wedding garter collection to include a few more, let’s say, elegant garters for our Brides to choose from.

Take a closer look at what Tanya’s been creating with a needle and thread and her sewing machine here at Moonrise Wedding Garters.

 

It’s always a real pleasure writing about Real Brides and their Wedding Days, so we took time out to congratulate Nicole & Craig on their outdoor Scottish Wedding on the banks of the very picturesque Loch Lomond.

We then talked wedding favours. An area where most Brides try their hand at a bit of DIY, but beware before you do!

favours_for_weddings

We caught up with ‘Can I Do You a Favour’ to see what they had to offer in the way of wedding favours as well as a few hints and tips on keeping within a budget!

 

That’s it for the time being. We’ll be off to MODA on the look out for new wedding lingerie collections as well some nice lingerie collections for our sister site Moonrise at Midnight!

 

Love

Wedding favours along with invites and place names are things that Brides to Be often take on themselves for their own wedding day without realising just how time consuming it is making 50, 100, 150 or even more favours for their guests. So have a serious think before you choose which DIY tasks you take on for your wedding day. Sometimes it’s just better to leave industry professionals to do what they do! So we caught up with Laura from ‘Can I Do You A Favour‘ and picked their brains about wedding favours.

Q: Tell us a little more about ‘Can I Do You a Favour?’ Why you started & How long you’ve been going?

I started my little business in November 2012 , the main reason being so I could work from home and still look after my twin boys who were born June 2012. I’ve always been creative and because of this I made a lot of my own wedding stationery and favours for my wedding in 2010, I started off by offering favours which soon expanded into wedding stationery.

favours_for_weddings

Q: What are some of your most popular favours to your more bespoke/ specific wedding favours?

Our most popular favours are our lip and moustache lollipop favours. Boxed favours are popular too as well as scratch card/lottery ticket holders.

wedding_day_favours

Q: Many brides are on a budget. What advice can you give them on budget when it comes to their wedding favours?

All of our favours can have guests’ names put on, so therefore the cost of favours and place settings can be combined.

 

Traditionally favours are only for female daytime guests.

 

Maybe have a bowl/basket of favours for guests to help themselves to, rather than one per guest.

Q: What can Brides to Be expect when they come to ’Can I Do You a Favour?’ for their wedding favours?

A friendly, helpful and professional service that delivers on time and keeps you up to date along the way!

Q: What advice can you give our Brides to Be when it comes to planning their wedding day?

Do your research! If it’s too good to be true then it probably is! Think about the elements that matter the most to you as a couple and get them sorted, then any spare budget can be spent on a few little luxuries.

Q: Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions? & What are they? (Just for fun)!

To get fit! Cliche I know but joined the gym and did my induction today! Will need to be organised too!

Scrumptious Wedding Favours – By Favours Direct

Q: Can you tell me a bit about what you do?

Favours direct supply wedding and party favours in a range of different styles with a multitude of filling and personalisation options.
Here at favours direct we are convinced we have a favour to suit every style, however if we don’t quite have what the customer wants we can make any favour to match their style.

Q: How long have you been designing different favours for?

Favours Direct was born during the planning stages of our own wedding, we were looking for a specific type of wedding favour and realised a distinct gap in the market,
we designed our own wedding favour then started designing other favour options.

img1

The website went live at the beginning of this year and we add new ranges to our favour options as themes and styles change.

Q: Do you have a particular style that sets you apart from other favour specialists and where do you get your inspiration?

Favours direct have a modern approach with a traditional twist, although some of our favours may be available with other suppliers we are sure the combination of styling, filling and personalising the favours are what sets us apart from the rest, not only that but our favours come ready for the table, we don’t supply flat pack ready to assemble favours, we are here to take the hassle out of wedding favours and have them complete assembled and ready to use.

img2

Favours Direct have at present over 3 million combinations of favours allowing them to be designed to suit the customer perfectly. The first rule in business is you must listen to what
your customers want, although everyone’s style may be different customers generally have a good idea of what they want and the question “do you have anything like….” is usually the first stages in the creation of a new range, but our inspiration is drawn from all over and the understanding everyone has their own interests and a favour is a great way for guests to leave with a little piece of the wedding of their own.

Q: What is your most popular type of favour?

Having recently featured in Unveiled Magazine all of those that were in the feature have become really popular although the traditional organza bag with sugared almonds remains a
favourite, by far our most popular wedding favour is the terracotta plant pot tied with rustic string, this favour looks fresh from the garden and fits with the current trends of outdoor themes. When filled with seeds they can be a great choice for guests to take home and plant a memory from the wedding day.

Q: Are there fashions and trends in favours like there are in other areas of the wedding industry?

Favours tend to match the general theme of the wedding, this can be achieved really well by matching the ribbon/raffia or string to the colour scheme the couple have chosen. At the moment outdoor and sweetshop are the two most popular themes we are creating for, however it’s getting to that time when festive themes start creeping in.

img4

Q: Do you have any special offers on at the moment that we can mention for you?

Favours Direct have just started offering free delivery on all orders, due to the size of the boxes we ship we have to use a specialist courier company and having negotiated a great deal with them we can now offer shipping to our customers for free.

We also offer special offers and discount codes throughout the year and the best way to find out about these is to sign up to our newsletter on our homepage www.favoursdirect.co.uk or liking us on facebook at www.facebook.com/favoursdirect
