WEDDING FAVORS LOVE | colorful, lovely, fabulous favor inspiration | All Hail Rebecca Thuss

I have admired Rebecca Thuss from afar for quite a long stretch now.  When it comes to swoon-worthy, she is, in my estimation, a genius.  Upon a visit to Rebecca’s site, one finds this menu:

Now, I can speak only for myself, but you might agree with me when I say that this short, sweet list of Portfolio items is kind of paralyzing in a way, with its array of tantalizing topics, each one more enticing than the last.  Where to start?!

This frozen moment can be compared to that brief moment when your beloved has just proposed, and you are, for a second, dumbfounded, with an acute case of shock, delight and this is the biggest decision of my life but I need to make it in the shortest period of time manifesting all at once on your face.  Or maybe that’s a bit extreme of a comparison.  But whatev.  No matter, as this period of reaction is short-lived, in both cases.  What takes over – back to Rebecca Thuss now – is an unparalleled excitement coupled with a furious exploration of every nook and cranny held within those carefully and cleanly titled categories.

Listed among her many enviable capabilities are Prop & Set Styling, Wedding Design, Event Design and Crafting…

Wow.  Every one of those skills is something I think most of us would be pleased as punch to do for a living ourselves.

Little boxes, on the hillside, little boxes, filled with ticky tacky…

These two, above and below, bring back thoughts of this oldie but goodie DIY project.

Want your wedding to be floral-focused?  Then these little pink favor boxes could be the perfect finishing touch on your big day.  And, speaking of flower power, these gowns will fit that theme, not to mention your shape, expertly.

I adore the favor boxes below; they offer a fun, rustic feel, and the images affixed to the box tops – each one different from the last – are filled with warm colors and tones.  Plus, I’m lovin’ the twine and tags, of course.  Attention to detail is always admired and appreciated… and if you have the time and desire to do it, I wholeheartedly champion the effort (and I’d love to attend your wedding, as well!).

Cherries!  Little scalloped edged bags of transparent vellum, filled with (what I consider to be delicious) deep red cherries.  So simple, so pretty… it’s perfect for the quick and easy favor, but still quite upscale and dignified.

Feeling inspired?  Stay tuned for more posts about other terrific ideas and sources for making your own, or at least semi-homemade, wedding favors.  There are so many out there, it’s kind of unreal, and definitely overwhelming.  But, as always, my goal is to track down the best of the best, or invent on my own when I feel like getting crafty.

For now, here are a couple of handpicked resources where you can find yourself some of your very own perfect favor packaging supplies…

And always remember, have fun with it.  You’re throwing a huge party, and, besides getting married, the point of it is to have a grand ol’ time… so make sure you invite yourself!
