2. It’s About Thyme!
A quirky idea for your bonbonniere if you’ve been with your fiancé for a while. Plant some thyme in small pots and wrap them up in your choice of cloth – hessian, lace, ribbon etc. Print out and glue on a small label titled ‘It’s about Thyme’! Fun Fact: The ancient Greeks and Romans used thyme for courage and energy so their aroma should keep your dance floor busy all night long…
3. Spread the Love
Weddings are all about love and why wouldn’t you want to spread some love around – literally? Make up a big batch of homemade jam and bottle it in jars with a label saying ‘Spread the Love’! If you don’t have a trusted jam recipe from Nanna, an alternative is to fill your jars with honey and label them with the words ‘Love is Sweet’.
4. Key Place Card Holder
You give your fiancé the key to your heart so why not commemorate the moment with key place card holders? Pinkfrosting.com.au has antique looking key place card holders to suit all kinds of weddings; Rustic, Vintage, Secret Garden, etc. Or maybe you or your fiancé just has a talent for losing keys and it could give your guests a giggle!
